Lessons from Rick & Morty
Posted January 30, 2017on:
Rick and Morty is an animated series that is waiting for its third season.
It is not for the faint-hearted because it makes you laugh from openings you might not realise you have. It can be rude and crude, but -oh-so intelligent.
So it should come as little surprise that it is possible to use Rick and Morty to illustrate human cognition, confirmation bias, and how correlation is not the same as causation.
This just goes to show how just about anything can be used to teach anything else. The key is an educator who can think both creatively and critically.
