Learning to learn: asking questions and taking names

Learning to learn: asking questions and taking names | Paramedic studies | Scoop.it

By Ally Greer:


There are such things as stupid questions.


Just kidding, there aren’t. (Got your attention, though, right?)

 

I don’t care how many times we were told this growing up – I always find myself thinking, “Don’t ask that, that’s dumb. You should know that.” Well, guess what? Like I talked about in my last post, so many people of today’s world are in a perpetual state of learning. There is always something that seems obvious to one person that another person might not have ever thought about. The whole reason that conversing with others can be so amazing is because everyone has something to teach and everyone has something to learn. Why we view this as being stupid and not as an opportunity to extract new information is beyond me.


Don’t be afraid to keep asking.

Asking and answering questions quickly becomes the foundation for lifelong learning. Ally's insights reveal a young mind that's already addicted to learning (foreever).  A great read.

Worth going through this post. If you don't know - learn - how to ask questions, you won't keep learning. Agreed - there are no stupid questions.

Well, I've just seen an industry first. Indiegogo have extended this campaign by 30 days. What are they thinking? Will this give reason for others to ask for extensions to their campaigns?
