TeachThought.com has a series of posts about self-directed learning by Terry Heick and the staff, well worth a read! “

It is interesting how few classroom teachers and administrators are aware of what self-directed learning is. SDL is an imperative for our children.

It just makes more sense to show someone a map if you can, instead of directing them towards only one path.
