ab: From the text: The attributes of simple, easy, and efficient have been
embraced and promoted in our daily lives, especially in commercial
products such as cell phones, iPods, televisions, cars, and so on. This
article discusses how simplicity, ease, and efficiency kill reasoning
and require little brain activity. Another consequence of embracing
simplicity and efficiency is that skills are characterized as technical
manipulations and operations. Four approaches to restoring reasoning in
teachersâ€™ instruction and studentsâ€™ learning are described.
