A Powerful, One-Sentence Argument For Progressive Learning

Probably the best argument I’ve seen for the constant need to evolve the mechanims, curriculum, and delivery system for how people learn.

Also explains the generational chasm that can hinder such progress as well. We instinctively want to teach how we were taught, even if we dress it up with technology and “cutting-edge trends.”

The quote also works if you change the “in” to “for.” In fact, that’s how I read it the first three times I saw it.
