How to Model Deliberate Practice in the Classroom

Thomas, Open Education, Nov 05, 2008
Commentary by Stephen Downes

I oftent talk of teaching being 'modeling and demonstrating' (rather than 'information transfer'). But what does that mean? Modeling and demonstrating what? This post is a good insight into this. Things like goal-setting and self-reflection can be explicitly demonstrated. "While natural talent may be overrated, deliberate practice is not. In fact, deliberate practice is the place where self-reflection, work ethic and ambition all meet." (We will ignore the Dale's cone/pyramid diagram in the sidebar).
