Our lives are filled with spaces where we learn from the time we are born and forever after. Learning begins with sounds, smells, tastes, textures, images, and emotional responses. Learning connects us to the world and the world to us. We learn as individuals and with each other. We represent our learning through our stories, images that we capture, words on pages, work we accomplish, and the symbols we use to describe, qualify and quantify our universe. Our learning embodies the uniqueness of who we are; no two memories are alike. This space for learning creates an opportunity to connect and construct memories together that become internal documentaries of that which we choose to explore- to rewind, play, pause, or fast forward.  We are all creators of learning moments. That’s what we do.

    What’s your view on homeschooling? Could you do a post about that?

  4. Very nice, very true. I don’t know exactly what the Liebster Blog Award is, but I’m sure you deserve it–if it means a blog with good quality and integrity.

    Great perspective and powerful imagery about learning! It encapsulates the fact that learning is dynamic and is to a varying degree the essence of a great and satisfying life.
