Learning is Life.
I believe that all humans are learning each and every moment of the day. We are all constantly learning and we are all also constantly teaching. The job of educators is to observe and analyze the gazillion or so learning moments and then replicate them. It sounds simple enough but it is all so challenging for two reasons: (1) the only mind we are privy to is our own and (2) too many variables that impact our lives such that we can never truly be sure the of cause and effects of events. Basically, it is hard to observe the moment a person “learns” something and furthermore it is even more challenging to observe a person enough to know exactly what series of events lead to him/her learning. With that said, it is remarkable to me that we have learned as much as we have about learning but I can see why we face many challenges in trying to standardize education for the masses.
