So as someone who works in learning - the outcome of learning should be understanding, not knowledge. You can 'learn' knowledge by rote (remember learning your times tables as a kid?) but it's the application of the knowledge and the understaning that's important - not if you can simply remember a fact - all that shows is you have a good memory.

Or as Feynman put it:


“You can know the name of a bird in all the languages of the world, but when you're finished, you'll know absolutely nothing whatever about the bird... So let's look at the bird and see what it's doing — that's what counts. I learned very early the difference between knowing the name of something and knowing something.”

Thanks for that, it was interesting.

Along the lines of Strava for Learning, I was doing Advent of Code with some of my friends at the end of last year. So I think that sort of thing has potential.
