Learning How To Learn: Barbara Oakley at TEDx
Barbara Oakley is a top educational researcher and a professor of engineering. But she wasn’t always a math person. Originally interested primarily in languages and cultures, she made a career change at age 26 (reminds me of myself…I pivoted from French to mathematics when I started college). In this video she explains what she learned about her brains through that process.
The video is a great resource for parents or homeschool students. Learning how we learn makes us all better students.
