One of the core elements of our mission is redefining the meaning of the word learning. Without a new and more encompassing understanding of learning we can’t progress to make the other key distinctions (healthy-unhealthy, natural-unnatural, etc.) which are the foundational elements in the case for ‘stewarding the health of our children’s learning’.
One way to prompt an exploratory dialogue into this starting point (redefining learning) is to give serious attention to our question:
Who are you other than who you have learned to be?
Another way to ask the question is:
What can you say about yourself that is completely unaffected by learning?
Please comment on this post and share your responses to the question. Let’s use the question as a rabbit-hole for exploring the role of learning in our lives.
