Another dot in the blogosphere?


Posted on: May 12, 2020

I have not made an image quote in a while, so here is one that is particularly relevant today. It is from author Douglas Adams.

“Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so.”  — Douglas Adams

Adams’ observation holds true when you consider how some governments seemed to not learn from the mistakes of others when dealing with SARS-COV-2.

The same could be said about how some in schooling and education choose not to learn from the experience of more informed others. They would rather make the same mistakes or invent new ones.

I would be tempted to say that learning from one’s mistakes is a powerful way to learn. The problem is some refuse to learn and others suffer as a result.
