"How do we learn?" It's a simple question, with a very complex answer. Journalist Benedict Carey of The New York Times, tackled it by writing a book called How We Learn. Carey discovered many things in the course of writing the book, but his most significant finding was that no one actually teaches anything about learning. Students who do everything they're supposed to--like setting up quiet, distraction-free learning environments and taking their studies seriously--may be doing it all wrong. Offering insights from cognitive psychology, Carey introduces us to some new learnings about...well, learning.
