Teaching Teaching & Understanding Understanding

This is a "19-minute award-winning short-film about teaching at University", which could equally apply to Further Education. How many Susans and Roberts do you teach?

I particulary liked the concrete example of linking new knowledge to existing knowledge. You are asked to memorise symbols which represent the numbers 1 - 9 (see figure 1 below).

It is very hard to do until you are told just where the symbols come from (see figure 2 below). Then it becomes very easy!!!

A very interesting and thought provoking video, which I am not surprised won an award. Well worth spending the 19minutes on it!
