The case for mastery learning and mindset

So many great parallels given during Sal Khan's ten-minute TED Talk. The case for mastery and mindset – fundamental to learning, understanding, and applying disciplines effectively. Khan discusses the importance of mastery ranging from homebuilding and martial arts to the education process and how our mindset needs to be oriented in a specific way. This subject also influences self-reliance and self-discipline. It's well worth a listen. 

Would you choose to build a house on top of an unfinished foundation? Of course not. Why, then, do we rush students through education when they haven't always grasped the basics? Yes, it's complicated, but educator Sal Khan shares his plan to turn struggling students into scholars by helping them master concepts at their own pace."
