What is Learning?

Learning is the constant process of acquiring knowledge and developing skills.  Learning is most effective through experiences, social interactions, and self-reflection.   Learning is not limited to specific tasks or locations such as school or reading. Learning most often takes place in day-to-day interactions with people in the world around us.

Many of the most effective ways to inspire learning in our classrooms is to mimic real-world social interactions and hands-on experiences. While it is possible for students to learn through many traditional teaching methods such as lectures, worksheets, and textbooks, these methods tend to be less effective.
