|Time for What?|
The above link is an interesting read with thoughts about time and its impact on learning. Much of it high school focused but still worth the mention.
What if we weren’t hemmed in, or were less hemmed in by the clock when it comes to learning?

“The thing we have become worst at in our schools is helping students get ready for anything except more secondary schooling. We usually do nothing to even prepare students for universities, much less anything else, and here, time is the key factor. How do you choose to “study?” Where do you choose to “study”? and of course, When do you choose to “study”? Those key questions which determine university success in many ways are completely blocked from the primary and secondary experience because we insist on running our students as if they were a (French, not American) train system, with every moment accounted for. How, with your clock training, will your students even know what to do with themselves if they get a job where some of the time-use decisions are theirs?” Ira Socol
