Capturing the Learning Process - Example Django

From my experience as a teacher and learner, I've noticed that information actually is not the basis of knowledge. You can never just show someone how to solve a maths problem. They'll just forget it. What you have to do is the help the student to realize how to solve it. Usually it helps to ask the right questions for example. So that the student can have an epiphany and suddenly get it. Feels great.

Well, that's the basis of my Project of Capturing Learning Processes. I don't have a proper name for it yet though. This is a project that's going to take a while to conceptualize, since I want to revolutionize learning from the starting point of identifying the problem. I'll call the project sparks for now.

Problem: There is a lot of knowledge lost in learning. Learning is inefficient. Let's make learning more efficient by using the web.

I'm not going to tell more about the project right now, until I get a bit further. For now, I'm going to settle on Capturing my own Learning Process. I'm going to learn web developement on Django.
