Psychologists have discovered that some of the most hallowed advice on study habits is flat out wrong.
- This is old news; psychologists have known for decades about the spacing effect and variability in promoting robust learning.
- Learning scientists need to do a better job disseminating their findings.
- The problem is all the popular fluff that lacks or directly contradicts ed research yet gets published anyway.
- I should just be glad that this line of work is getting mass media attention now.
