“Learning is Doing”
When I think about the learning process, the most important part is when we put what we have learned and do something with it. That is why I really like this quote as it is easy to come complacent and stop right after you think you have learned something. Rather then going deeper into it and actually doing what you have learned and making a use of the knowledge you have. To fully learn something means you might have to fail at first and be able to learn from your failures. Problem solving is a very important tool to have in and out of the classroom and you learn this skill from doing. The curriculum can mean nothing to a student if it doesn’t relate to there own life and how they go about doing things. The more we can connect what we are learning to actions outside of the classmates the better chance a student will buy in to what we are teaching.
