When playing Lightbot and working through the addition puzzles, could you feel how the experience of gradually integrating discernments is different from mastering a sequence of steps?January 4, 2021 at 12:01 am #1803Brooke SenekParticipant
I definitely noticed how working through the addition puzzles encouraged me to focus on the discernments as opposed to the sequence of steps and procedures. I found that this encouraged me to slow down, comprehend, practice, and then put my learning to the test. It encouraged a deeper sense of thinking and practice, as opposed to simply recalling math facts or previously learned problems/techniques.January 8, 2021 at 1:26 am #1811Danielle CalderParticipant
I am still not understanding the difference between discernments and steps. I am seeing them as the same thing. Steps you follow to complete a task. Discernment is what you have to come aware of to learn something. Would that not mean discernments are steps? You come aware of what you have to do or what it takes to complete a task?January 18, 2021 at 8:49 am #1823Martina MetzKeymaster
Hi Danielle, Great questions. It’s possible to see steps in a procedure as discernments; however, those kinds of steps tend to be limited to a series of things to DO as opposed to things to MAKE SENSE OF. Sometimes, understanding a single step in a procedure (e.g., “bring down the 5”) involves many discernments. Being aware of items in a series of procedural steps is different from noticing everything I need to notice to make sense of those steps.
