Another well written piece Barbara! The cornerstone is the definitely changing the language TO Learner AWAY from Student. This simple but powerful change is the first step in reframing the whole paradigm. I believe that to really move forward we must also change the language for Teacher as well as it will help to reframe and redefine our role. So what is the term we should use.....mentor, coach, leading learner?
