One thought that crossed my mind as I watched this video was how much science undergirds and enables the art. The same could be said about pedagogy.

I define pedagogy as the science and art of teaching. The science refers to the theoretical principles, experimentation, and research of what might be quantified about teaching. The art is the practice getting better with critical and reflective practice. Do one without the other, or favour one over the other, and we are unlikely to teach effectively.

 
I have always wondered why the references are to conversation bubbles, belief bubbles, online bubbles, etc.

Bubbles are easy to pop. Those conversations, beliefs, or groups are not. They are more like walled gardens or even fortified castles.

“Bubbles” is a misnomer and yet we perpetuate its use by not questioning it.

 
I like learning concepts from unexpected places.

I did not expect to unearth three labels for how mindset bubbles form from a Film Theorists video, How Star Wars Theories Killed Star Wars.

Attitudes and beliefs shape mindsets, and a hardened mindset bubble easily becomes a shell to retreat into. To remain open to learning, one must look out for the:

  • Exposure effect: Being exposed only to information that you prefer or are familiar with
  • Illusory truth effect: Believing information after it is repeated over and over again
  • Confidence effect: Receiving information so that it creates more confidence in their accuracy, regardless of their actual accuracy

Bubbles still can be popped; shells are harder to break.
