Toffler On Learning How To Learn

November 6, 2012

Excerpted from Future Shock, by Alvin Toffler:

Given further acceleration, we can conclude that knowledge will grow increasingly perishable. Today’s “fact” becomes tomorrow’s “misinformation”. This is no argument against learning facts or data – far from it. But a society in which the individual constantly changes his job, his place of residence, his social ties, and so forth, places an enormous premium on learning efficiency. Tomorrow’s schools must therefore teach not merely data, but ways to manipulate it. Students must learn how to discard old ideas, how and when to replace them. THey must, in short, learn how to learn.
