Most of us are taught through a combination of two processes: instruction and incentive. Parents and teachers tell us what to do and how to do it correctly. They may offer incentives to get us do the work and master it. Researches by recent Educators and Psychologists reveal the limitations of such approach. It is always tempting or much more easier to tell people how to do things better, to make them practice, and to reward the progress. This approach “I-Tell-You-Do” though may get work accomplished fast, it fails to inspire and leverage the best out of human learning. It only undermines motivation, discourages risk taking and limits creativity. It produce results in short run but it seldom work in the long haul to stimulate self-learning and development that will produce optimal performance.
