Quote of the Month
How to Learn More Effectively in the 21st Century
The fusion of cognitive science and artificial intelligence has the potential to transform the educational landscape in unprecedented ways. As we venture into a new era of cognitively charged learning, it is crucial to remember the words of futurist Alvin Toffler: "The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn." Embracing the synergistic power of AI and cognitive science in education will equip students and educators with the tools to learn more effectively and adapt and thrive in an evolving world.
