  13. 13. This is how we optimize the learning curve: 1) Using only positive reinforcement creates a feedback loop that celebrates success rather than punish mistakes. 2) Keeping the child interested all the time, by making it difficult enough to be a challenge, but not too difficult to make it. The advanced adaptive technology in Number Bonds by Thinkout does just that!måndag 2 april 12
