Why Learning Complex Skills Take Time - Deepstash

Why Learning Complex Skills Take Time

ACT-R argues that we don’t learn by explicit instruction, only by example.

When we appear to learn via instruction, we first generate an example based on the instruction and then use this example to create a new production.

Once created, productions are strengthened through use. Every time a production is used to solve a problem, it becomes more likely to be chosen again in similar circumstances. The strengthening process is incredibly slow.

This is why it can take so much practice to be good at complicated skills.
