Without practice

Why practice makes perfect?

“Without constant practice, the officers will be nervous and undecided when mustering for battle; without constant practice, the general will be wavering and irresolute when the crisis is at hand.”

Translation of the Art of War

  1. Not everything we do need practice. As Prensky (2007) states in his book on Digital Game-based Learning, it depends on the nature of the thing we do or learn. For example in learning, a lot of people focus on the question of how to learn, and generated a lot of learning theories, or cliams on learning styles (including the one like ‘practice makes perfect’). Anyhow, if we shift our perspective to ‘how to learn what’, and focus on the nature of “what”, then the argument of practice makes perfect only good for certain types of learning materials, or things we do.
