Rote learning is essential

I think SuperMemo got a new ally! Dr Helen Abadzi is critical of Sir Ken Robinson's "progressive" approach to learning! I think she got a point saying that memories are essential in complex tasks.
We are fans of Robinson. He would probably NOT object a smart use of SuperMemo. Dr Abazi got a lot of valid points, but some are framed ambiguously. This sounds more like a terminological misunderstanding. Creativity and memory are friends, not enemies.
