Knowledge, Learning, Community

Here's the gist: "This fallacy takes for granted that this content is “important” without doing the hard work of letting learners experience for themselves what’s genuinely good or useful about it" and it "puts learners in the position of having to instantly come up with reasons why this new framework is the best idea ever." An example of this is a learning exercise where you introduce a new technology and then have participants come up with applications before ever having actually used it.
