“Learning is a transformative process of taking in information that — when internalized and mixed with what we have experienced — changes what we know and builds on what we do. It is based on input, process, and reflection. It is what changes us.” Tonny Bingham and Martha Conner (The new social learning)
A mental model is an explanation of how something works. It is a concept, framework, or worldview that you carry around in your mind to help you interpret the world and understand the relationship between things. Mental models are deeply held beliefs about how the world works.
