not education specific lessons from bjork(s)

LESSONS FROM BJORK(S): Robert Bjork, director of UCLA's Learning and Forgetting Lab, thinks locking yourself up in a room to cram is a bad way to store knowledge.

(Meanwhile, the Icelandic Bjork is embarking on an educational tour of her own to teach science and music while promoting her latest album.)
