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.
You can't teach someone how to learn. You can give them helpful tips and advice, but a single structure for education is not going to work for everyone. It's so much harder for people to learn their true potential, to reach their goals, when they're only shown a single path to them. You show them the path through the forest, but what if there's a rock face nearby that also leads up to where they want to go, and what if they happen to be a fantastic rock climber? It just makes more sense to show someone a map if you can, instead of directing them towards only one path.
