In the article "Reasoning Our Way In" by David Warlick, it talks about how when he was a kid growing up there was only one kind of watch, a analog watch and now when you see a watch it's digital. When he sees his children playing video games he asks them what the rules are, but they don't know. What they do is go into the game without knowing the rules or goal and learn as the game knows. They are ready to work the problem rather than remember the combination. Through this process we learn to go in open minded to situations which we haven't learned or dealt with before. This shows that kids don't know sometimes, but they have better reasoning when they are younger then older.
