From a quasi-expert: You're basically right! These days, knowing where to find resources is a much more important skill than cramming your head full of knowledge. Moreover though, the heart of stone is definitely the wrong model for learning. It turns out (completely intuitively, really) people learn much better when they give a crap about the topic at hand and it's relevant to their life. The trick is seeing the relevance. So a "frame of reference shift" or something else would be much more accurate. :)
