News for "generations of autodidactic computer nerds" "YOU ARE NOT ALONE!"...or at least you don't have to be #TLTGroup


"She contemplated teaching herself, as generations of autodidactic computer nerds have done before her, and as her brother (a senior engineer at a major tech firm) recommended. But she doesn’t learn well in isolation, she said....."

The article suggests that many people might learn computer-related skills better in groups... perhaps even in courses!  See below for anecdotal explanation of why so many of us find this a shocking but welcome concept.

What Does Cognitive Science Say about Using Technology in the Classroom? Last week Penny Kuckkahn and Steve Kaufman helped us explore various apps for reinforcing learning principles in the book “Make It Stick.” This week on FridayLive!, Linda Nilson, will share information from recent studies that have found certain technologies to interfere with or impede students' attention, elaborative rehearsal,  encoding, and retrieval of material, while others facilitate these processes or can when properly managed.  It will be interesting to put these pieces together.  Join us at 2 PM ET.
