When we learn anything, it can be broken down into four phases. To learn or teach anyhting, it is of benefit to know when each of these four stages are reached to gauge learning:
- Unconscious incompetence – You dont know what a car is
- Conscious incompetence – You know what a car is, but you dont know how to drive it
- Conscious competence – You can drive a car whilst concentrating on how to do it
- Unconscious competence – You can drive a car without thinking about it
Can you think of any examples for anything you have learnt recently?
