Abstract

Despite the accessibility of a wealth of information in the current era-books, universities, and online massive open online courses (MOOCs)-well-intentioned and hard-working students often fail to learn effectively due to deficient learning techniques or improper mind-sets. Two things, in particular, hinder students from achieving their potential. First, the students' intuition regarding how learning works is often flawed and counterproductive; second, despite significant progress in the research discipline of "learning sciences," these hard-earned scientific insights have not yet filtered their way through the research community to the students who stand to benefit most from this knowledge.
