Learning like a scientist
Alison Gopnik, U.C. Berkeley professor of psychology talks about the best ways to teach and learn in this interesting interview. She says: "it seems children learn by exploring—by experimenting, playing, drawing inferences... We all have the capacity to function the way scientists do." Her books, The Scientist in the Crib and now, The Philosophical Baby, tell us so much about the brain, parenting and teaching.
