• Learning involves the body as well as the mind.
  • Learning is fundamentally an act of creation, not consumption of information.
  • Learning takes place on many levels at once in the human brain and is not a linear, one-thing-at-a-time brain activity.
  • Collaboration increases learning; isolation and competition decreases it.
  • Learning occurs through active doing, with time for reflection and feedback not passive listening.
  • Positive emotions and mental imagery improve learning; the lack of both inhibits learning.
