Est-ce que l'école n'a pas l'obligation de favoriser l'apprentissage de tous?

This idea has been around a long time.  When I was an undergraduate, I had some friends state to me something along the lines of: "Now that I've finished my assignments, I can start pursuing my education."  The network of schools and programs for struggling teens started in the 1980s were based on many of these ideas, and so far as emotional growth along with academics, the emphasis was on helping the struggling students learn who they are and what they can do with it.  The motivation at that time was very much along the line of what the author calls learning.  Many of them are still doing that. -Lon

WOW! Great concept "SCHOOL does not equal LEARNING". This is a scary thought for many teachers who create content driven classrooms.  But as educators it speaks to the value of the building an environment of learning.

Sounds a bit like principles of Instructional Design, doesn't it?

Shouldn't Education and Learning Be the Same Thing?

Shouldn't Education and Learning Be the Same Thing? | hobbitlibrarianscoops | Scoop.it

"Schooling and institutionalized education have become removed from true, instinctual, and human/humane learning.  Humans have been learning since the beginning of time with major discoveries and innovations historically and currently emerging in spite of school.  This is the biggest problem I have with schools – most are contrived and coercive and do not honor the innate human need and desire to learn, discover, and evolve."

student at the heart of learning. problem based and context based learning key for this. students will often ask " why are we doing this?" if they can apply the lesson to their life it then becomes obvious why they are learning
