Common problematic pattern
- As I teach students/learners I see a common pattern of wanting to complete topics x, y or z and then make something.
- Or students who want to build a project but are really disorganized and have no plan on how to go about it, with limited knowledge and skills. They get overwhelmed with the amount of resources they need to go through to complete a particular task within limited time.
Better planning for better learningPlanning is important for learning any skill. It is not enough to jump into conditionals, loops, arrays etc and understand them. Meaningful learning comes from a place of knowing where you’re going and how you’re going to reach there. It is a journey/process. Nobody can validate the end result better than you after having gone through the process BEFORE you get a job or paid for your skills in some way. In which case, money is pretty good validation! 💵
