This post is about data. Not the data you might collect in a study, but important data to help you make decisions about teaching. (exciting, I know)
A surprising component of our brains is the ability to filter and synthesize massive amounts of data at every waking moment. In order to do this we set most of this work to “auto-complete” and magically get our answers to questions. It’s like driving somewhere and realizing your brain has already mapped it all out and gone on autopilot. Like a little black box between your ears.
