Day 1: An Overview
(Experience this as a TikTok.)
“Play is the work of childhood.” – Jean Piaget
“[F]or children, play is serious learning.” – Mr. Rogers
Adult learning is hard.
Fun is important.
Is it possible adult learning is needlessly difficult because there isn’t enough fun in it? (Is this particularly painful in software engineering, where you have to re-learn your software environment every three years?)
Is this particularly tough on some neurodivergent adults? Could those adults be accommodated in a way that might help everyone else, too?
