Learning to dream, dreaming to learn

Standard

Elsewhere I wrote

Dreaming, done well, is the most positive action.

According to Tara Parker-Pope

Whether someone can ultimately harness the power of dreaming to improve learning is an open question, but Dr. Stickgold does have a suggestion for students or others trying to master a task or study subject.

“If you’re a student and you want to do better on the test, you might need to dream about it,” Dr. Stickgold said. “The question is, ‘How do I get myself to dream about it?’ The answer is to get excited about it. That seems to be what you dream about.”
