Teaching yourself

Learning to Learn: metacognition and the coalesce() function

The challenge One skill that all great educators possess is the ability to ask questions. Asking the right questions at the right time of the learners in your classroom can facilitate understanding, uncover misconceptions, and indicate whether or not learners have mastered the material.

It doesn’t even have to be a big project to send us into a perpetual state of procrastination.
