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

“When you sit in front of a kindergartner with a stopwatch in your hand, and she can’t bark out letters fast enough to earn the score of proficient, and you’re recording all of it, you aren’t teaching her to read, you’re teaching her to hate reading.”
~Philip Kovacs, Associate Professor of Education at the University Alabama at Huntsville.
