The Learning Planet
Earth is often called the blue planet because of its impressive oceans. However, at least as impressive, but less well-considered, is the extent to which earth’s inhabitants change their behavior based on experience, specifically consequences. This truth makes the blue planet truly the Learning Planet. And, we are not talking just behavior that changes due to experience. Consequences affect genes and change brains, too. In this Session, different aspects of the learning planet will be discussed, the discussion guided by Susan Schneider’s book The Science of Consequences and several other seminal works. Key points will be illustrated with video examples.
