The Difference Between Skilled Learners and Good Students - InformED

The Difference Between Skilled Learners and Good Students - InformED | Active learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

The skilled learners of the world don’t always excel in their studies. And I don’t mean Gates and Einstein. I’m talking about the huge number of people who are passionate about knowledge, who have a real knack for remembering facts, who are self-taught musicians and casual scholars. People who ignore homework because it’s boring to them, fail geometry because their teacher makes it boring to them, don’t listen to lectures because they’d rather absorb the information themselves. These people aren’t good students; they’re natural learners. And we’re doing them–and the world– a disservice by treating them like second class citizens.

Kim Flintoff's insight:

The challenge is offering opportunities for meaningful engagement of skilled learners.  Not everyone comfortably jumps through other people's hoops.  Higher Education is charged with ways of enabling skilled learners to set up their own hoops.
