How might robot blocks help us learn more like babies?
Until we turn two...
Baby brains create about 2 million new synapses a second.
Building new connections is vital for understanding the world around us.
Mental pathways are the physical structure we build when learning.
Synapses literally link mental models in your brain.
More links mean more chances for learning.
So how can we put mental networks to better use?
Principles for better thinking.
Easy ways to improve your problem solving skills.
Links lead to more learning.
Many people think of learning as the process of acquiring new knowledge, skills, or habits.
But our brains aren’t hard drives filled with isolated facts, they are networks.
The things we understand are connected, either through rules, theories, narratives, logic, mental models or explanations
Your knowledge network benefits in a similar way.
According to Metcalfe's law, the value of a network increases as more connections are made.

The more we know, the more information we have to connect new information to, the easier we can form long-term memories.
Build a healthy mental network by building new links everyday.
When you learn something new...
Ask yourself what it reminds you of. Ask what it is connected to.
Place it in opposition to things you know. What is it the opposite of?
Or play with...
