We knew that rewards are better than punishments in education, but we knew that rewarding success is not a sufficient basis for learning. We also knew that rewarding progress was better that rewarding achievements, but it is interesting to see here how this idea has been corroborated :
Of course, this is a joke… but it leads me to note that, as far as I know, the stages of focusing, or rather the development of focus (as such) has not been studied… Am I right ? Perhaps we would better understand what kind of a skill focusing really is if we had some “genetic” or some longitudinal studies. It would probably also help us to distinguish several types of focusing.
Towards a more individualized and “humanized” way to learn… but can it compensate social inequalities ?
