“Robert A. Bjork It is natural for people to think that learning is a matter of building up skills or knowledge in one’s memory, and that forgetting is a matter of losing some of what was built up. From that perspective, learning is a good thing and forgetting is a bad thing. The relationship between learning and forgetting is not, however, so simple, and in certain important respects is quite the opposite: Conditions that produce forgetting often enable additional learning, for example, and learning or recalling some things is a contributor to the forgetting of other things.” 0 likes
“As William James (1980) was one of the first to emphasize, “If we remembered everything, we should on most occasions be as ill off as if we remembered nothing” 0 likes
