Learning is stupidly simple

In November 2001 I heard an inspiring talk by Russell Bell in the Cayman Islands. Russell Bell is running a learning centre in Kingston, Jamaica, 'Helping Students Realize Their Full Potential'.

This is his main idea:

'Learning is stupidly simple. To learn one has to remove obstacles, not to "strive for higher intelligence".'

Water can't flow out of a hose if it is blocked. The same goes for learning. His book 'The Learning Process' discusses how we learn, which barriers exist, and how to remove them.

I am looking forward to a promised update of his web site.
