John Heap :: Blog :: Why do I learn?

May 28, 2007

Yesterday, I asked about "How do I learn? .... but perhaps it is more pertinent to ask "Why do I learn?" because this possibly dictates the "How". 

I seem to be learning a lot at the moment just to 'get things done'.  Sometimes I resent the time it takes when I could be doing 'other things'.  Often, thankfully, the process of exploration is interesting and enjoyable for its own sake. (Second life, second childhood?)

How do we ensure our students engage with learning in ways that they enjoy?  By offering choice?
