今週の #WOTW は 'heuristic’ です。’Heuristic’ is not a word that people use all the time, but it’s related to triplo’s take on learning, so we thought it would be a good idea to have a look at it. This word is mostly used as an adjective, but it can also be a noun. Let’s start with the former.
- At triplo we have a heuristic approach to learning. (Enabling a person to discover or learn something for themselves.)
- Heuristic teaching methods are the reason why Finnish schools are so good. (See above.)
- It is practically impossible to monitor all the comments on the website, so we run heuristic tests to detect infringement. (In computing this refers to proceeding to a solution by trial and error or by rules that are only loosely defined.)
Now, the noun.
- The heuristic with the children is that we just let them mix the colours for them to learn what happens. We try to do this whenever possible. (A heuristic process or method.)
- My field of study is the heuristics of migrant childrens’ adaptation to new cultures. (The study and use of heuristic techniques.)
- Isn’t life all about heuristics? I mean, you try and fail, and so you learn. (The process by which people learn things by themselves.)
