A few palm trees stand strong in the salty breeze. Located on the southern tip of the Pacific island chain of Hawaii, Kamilo Beach is an isolated stretch of black volcanic shoreline in the middle of nowhere. Just a few hundred yards from shore, humpback whales rise up from the depths, colorful fish fill the reefs and rare sea turtles swim in to nest on the beach. But even in this remote place, garbage washes ashore each day.

It differentiates our intelligence into the primary attributes we possess. The theory may help us figure out how to succeed in learning and life.

Déplacement de paradigme et les méthodes pédagogiques appropriées. 

Susanna Lavialle's curator insight, March 25, 2016 5:14 PM
We often tend to carry on with our typical teaching methods, and sometimes believe that the trainer needs to stay in charge of the learning event. It can be useful to check out this list... stop and evaluate the different options out there that shift the weight from teacher to learner.
