At school we’ve been talking about the importance of creating our own learning experiences. We’ve been wondering about how we can make ourselves better as professionals and some of us have put together a learning group.
I ask my students this pretty frequently, “Can learning ever happen in isolation?”. Is there anything we can learn that doesn’t build on anything. Can we come up with ideas on our own?
I think most quality learning experiences happen when people are having fun in groups. We learn more when we’re happy, we learn more when we can bounce our ideas off other people and correct our thinking in real time.
Our learning group is going to be focused on the individual. What do people want to get better at, how will they show that knowledge, how do we get to the next steps together. I’m looking forward to this journey.
