It May Be College Humour But……

How often do you find yourself dwelling in the past, desperately, (or easily as the case may be), seeking to recall facts or processes so earnestly presented to you as vital to your ongoing well being during your school years? How often do we teachers ever truly consider whether the how of learning is more important than what is being learnt? Maybe in the age of the “web in your pocket” the role of rote learning may finally be relegated to that of just one of the skills that may or may not assist you to learn rather than the paramount place it still seems to hold under test driven paradigms. If not then maybe this Gotye parody may carry the message more effectively. Either way it’s still a lot of fun to reflect on some study that I used to know.mp4

What do you think, does rote learning still have a leading place in education?
