Have you ever thought about how fascinating the mind is? How it grows and develops, and all of the influences along the way? Well, I have been thinking about all that and many more. The mind is full of complexities that we cannot explain all its operations or narrow down its evolution, in the theories that had been posited throughout history. Though I must acknowledge that some of these theories are quite compelling.
Among some of these are the cognitive and constructivist theories that we discussed this week. Cognitive theory explains the incredible nature of the brain in processing and interpreting information as we learn new things while constructivist theory contends that we learn through experiencing things and reflecting on our experience.
Be that as it may, I know that connecting new information with prior knowledge helps me learn effectively. It works like a chain reaction. But to attain mastery, I must translate that knowledge into practice.
