“Learning is about more than simply acquiring new knowledge and insights; it is also crucial to unlearn old knowledge that has outlived its relevance. Thus, forgetting is probably at least as important as learning.” Gary Ryan Blair
I wonder if sometimes 'experience' can do us a dis-service. This might happen when our experience blinkers our view, our doesn't promote our thinking about things in new or previously unexplored ways. Our 'experience' can build assumptions, and sometimes these assumptions can be counter productive to new learning.
What do you think?
