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

~Philip Kovacs, Associate Professor of Education at the University Alabama at Huntsville.

“The question is no longer whether or not impactful informal learning is happening in online spaces, rather the question is how will we research learning and learners within and across online spaces in order to better understand the confluences of meaning making that are occurring in diverse social media spaces” (Source: http://innovatelearningreview.org/tcc-2017-changing-to-learn-learning-to-change/*)
