Weekend Ed. Quote ~ July 22

“Books were only one type of receptacle where we stored a lot of things we were afraid we might forget. There is nothing magical in them, at all. The magic is only in what books say, how they stitched the patches of the universe together into one garment for us.” ~Ray Bradbury, in the foreword to Fahrenheit 451

Weekend Ed. Quote ~ July 14

We do not learn from experiences. We learn from reflecting on experiences. ~paraphrase of John Dewey*

https://trainersjournal.files.wordpress.com/2013/12/we-do-not-learn-from-our-experiences-we-learn-by-reflecting-on-our-experiences.jpg

 

*”​When we reflect upon an experience instead of just having it, we inevitably distinguish between our own attitude and the objects toward which we sustain the attitude. Such reflection upon experience gives rise to a distinction of what we experience (the experienced) and the experiencing​–the how.​”​ ~Dewey, J. (1916). Democracy and Education. p. 173 as quoted by Robert C. Lagueux here
