The beginning…

Once upon a time, I was reading a wonderful book calledĀ Pragmatic Thinking and Learning, which introduced me to theĀ Dreyfus model of skill acquisition.

Reading about the Dreyfus model made me feel like a doofus, because I had thought of a very similar learning model a year earlier, but didn’t pursue the idea because I didn’t think I was smart enough, or knowledgeable enough to be able to propose such a model. Besides, the model I was coming up with needed refining, and since I wasn’t 100% certain that the model is accurate, I thought it best not to share it with the world.

But the fact is, all our thinking is work in progress. We continuously refine our thoughts, and the more we express them and get feedback about them, the more we are able to improve on them.

This blog is my way of sharing my ideas before I fully develop them, and to learn from the experiences and ideas my readers are willing to share and contribute.
