Are We Teaching Students 'HOW' to Learn?

A few weeks ago, I posted a TED video featuring Sir Ken Robinson discussing whether schools are killing creativity on my cliotech blog.

I cam across a similar video today.  The video features Tony Buzan, author and creator of iMindMap software,  discussing a fundamental problem with public education worldwide – that schools are teaching students what to learn but not how to learn.   According to Buzan, in our efforts to teach children what to learn we sacrifice creativity and students fail to grasp how to learn – that we are increasingly turning out graduates who are dependent on others for information.
