What I’ve learned about learning

The LCB Big Question for December is about what we have each learned this past year, “What did you learn about learning in 2007?”. Since my blog is my outboard brain, I thought I’d review the posts that I’ve made on learning.

Here are some highlights:

I learned how computer games, especially epistemic games, can help people learn.

I learned more about coyotes.

I learned that good teaching can almost eliminate homework but that homework is only the tip of the iceberg that is weighing down learning.

I learned that hacking skills are also learning skills.

I learned that improv acting skills, which my son is developing, make for good work and life skills.

And I also learned to keep the important things in focus.
