How the Brain Learns

How to turn a new skill into an automatic habit.

Skill acquisition requires planning, training and practice. Sports people definitely know all about that. But what about teachers and students ?

Mostly we just "get on with it" as we teach and learn.

We don't give much thought to the range of mental skills that we are using every day as we teach and learn. Pause for a moment and think about it.

What mental skills are being used ?

Am I using  these skills effectively ?

Can I improve ?  How can I improve ?
