Are We Really Learning?

Posted on: March 12, 2013

The greatest excuse for failure is that at least there was a lesson learned! Quite an oxymoron as the only lesson to be learned during failure is that the intended result was not acquired. There is still unknown variable behavior to determine what specifically caused the failure. If you can’t pin point empirically through unbiased data what went wrong then i am sorry to say that there was no learning acquired!

For learning to take place 3 things have to be in place.

  1. Blank. In Chemistry this refers to the intentionally un-interrupted datum point used for comparison during and after the test. How would you know if there is any change if you don’t compare it to something known?
  2. Tracking. How will you know what changed if you don’t track it.
  3. Variables. This should be second as this is what is being tracked!

So if there was no data, no validation, no comparison then technically you can’t possibly have learned anything. So when we loosely use the word learning in lieu of the absence of an expected result, maybe we need to do some learning about learning!
