Embracing Messy Learning

Embracing Messy Learning | LearningTeachingTeachingLearning | Scoop.it

I am slowly learning to embrace the struggles that students experience as they engage with authentic work. If I don't allow learning to be messy, I eliminate authentic experiences for students as thinkers and creators. I find it important to regularly remind myself that frustration leads to insights and that learning is not necessarily the equivalent of mastery.

Learning is messy. It is a recurring process which is always recommencing itself.

magnus sandberg's curator insight, August 9, 1:24 AM

The article is good, but what I really love is the term "messy learning" itself. So much teaching in school has the ideal of creating clairity and being systematic in every part of the learning process. But that is simply not how learning happens. We need to embrace the messyness!

Josh Round's curator insight, August 10, 9:08 AM

The messy learning described here mirrors the struggles and frustrations our Learners face in communicative classrooms - a inherent part of the process of learning a language.

la necesidad de hablar diversos idiomas para poder vivir en una sociedad global ha generado el desarrollo de traductores en tiempo real que prácticamente eliminan, sino reducen, la necesidad de ir a una academia o instituto a aprenderlos. El traductor de Skype es un ejemplo claro de ello.

When I talk to people about mind mapping, I usually find myself facing one of two reactions: The person I’m speaking with either LOVES mind maps, or pretty much has no idea what they are or what they could be used for. We’ve discussed mind maps occasionally in the past, but I recently stumbled on …
