Learning About Learning

At iMorph Innovation Center, we are trying a new experiment – Innovation in Teaching and Learning. We hope to start with the software community and move to others, building tools, trying a few novel methods. This  journey, so far, is exciting and extremely satisfying.

One of the inspirations for this initiative was a study by Deloitte on How People Learn and this fascinating book – How People Learn: Brain, Mind, Excellence and School.

Another source of inspiration was from Seven Freedoms of Learning.
