Children will learn well when the process becomes authentically responsive, learners become full partners and it all becomes more playful.
David Warlick writes a thoughtful post about how people learn and make meaningful connections. "If we change learned to learn, the experience starts to reflect and is reshaped by the behavior of the learner. It becomes an exchange between the learner, what has been learned, and what is to be learned, and it provokes an active and deliberate investment by the learner. It becomes personal."
1. The experiences are responsive.
2. They provoke conversation.
3. These experiences inspire personal investment.
4. These "native" learning experiences are guided by safely-made mistakes.
Thanks David for a great post!
