A talk (still!) impacting the way teacher’s teach
Joshua Foer’s deliberate practice model. In this 17 minute talk Joshua lays out a roadmap, a how-to, that students can follow to become exceptional at any skill they desire. Joshua isn’t just theorising, he put this into practice by going from a freelance journalist to the USA Memory Champion in under 12 months. He set a new record of memorising a deck of 52 cards in 1 minute and 40 seconds. Joshua did this with no prior experience, or skill in the area. His journey was documented in his New York Times Bestseller Moonwalking With Einstein.
