Memory is not a vehicle for learning

According to Robert Swartz, a member of the International Standing Committee of the ICOT, rote learning does not create thinking or knowledge. Learning should be active, based on explorative and communicative processes in which the student enriches his mind with the thinking of their peers. This requires a profound methodological change teachers.

Also, Rosemary Hipkins, a Speaker at the ICOT 2015 and head of the Council for Educational Research in New Zealand and an expert on core competencies OECD,
notes that the conceptual knowledge of the curriculum does not have an analytical approach to fully understand the concepts but to make students learn more easily and transmit the knowledge . However, this does not mean that students learn.
