The Protege Effect


Just a quick post today not to break the streak 🙂 Here’s another interesting link explaining why learning by teaching is such a good idea. There is a suggestion to introduce a kind of cascade system where older students teach younger, and those teach even younger; another option would be to have a ‘teachable agent’, or an AI system that has to be taught by students and through this help them achieve better results in their own learning. A few useful terms as well: the Protege Effect (the positive effect of teaching on your own learning) and the Yiddish term nachas, which apparently means taking pride in someone else’s success – really cool, I have that often!
