School is often based not on problem solving, which perforce involves actions and goals, but on learning information, facts, and formulas that one has read about in texts or heard about in lectures. It is not surprising, then, that research has long shown that a student’s doing well in school, in terms of grades and tests, does not correlate with being able to solve problems in the areas in which the student has been taught (e.g., math, civics, physics).

WOW what a beautiful place Thr University of Oxford is. Again it’s a shame we can’t stay longer but we need to get on a train to stand any chance of getting to bed at a reasonable hour! 😅 pic.twitter.com/ely3…
Discover eLearning is visiting The University of Oxford today! Together we are developing a series of learning games for desktop and mobile. Only wish the weather wasn’t so bad as we were looking forward to taking some time out to explore the campus! #elearning#edtechuk
