11 Nov 2021  |  Expansión
Adults often avoid failure and extreme effort, unlike children who learn through risk-taking and imagination. The field of Andragogy, along with early 20th-century researchers like Binet and Yoakum, explores why children learn more effectively. They emphasized introspection and awareness of learning strategies. Adults must adopt a child-like mindset of innovation to adapt and transform in the face of complex challenges. Cognitive and behavioral sciences suggest principles to maintain this spirit, such as relying on others, understanding one's mind, being curious, and avoiding unnecessary risks. Meta-learning processes can help create a life plan and are essential in personal, social, and business transformation.
