How to avoid psychological misconceptions

traffic-cone

Here is a nice weekend piece to read: an interview with Art Markman, a psychology professor and populariser, about the use of psychological advances in education. You can listen to the podcast (it’s 25 minutes), or skim the article instead, and perhaps get some of your questions answered. For example, why haven’t we sorted out the human brain yet? Or: does mindfulness really make you more creative? Or, surprisingly: is it always useful to develop a growth mindset? Hmm.

Compare it with the post about learning myths, and you can consider yourselves armed against fads in education!
