Learning with 'e's

When we learn we grow. We grow intellectually, but we also make actual, physical connections in our brains which count as physical growth. Such growth can be chaotic and seemingly void of structure at time, especially in the digital age where there are multiple pathways and a bewildering number of choices we can make as to what we learn, how (and with what tools) we learn it, and at what pace we learn. How do teachers engineer such learning opportunities?

At The Water Cooler of Learning

Marcia Conner

We have become obsessed with formal learning in the workplace. In our zeal to learn, we have transferred the formal model of learning into the collective mind of our corporations. Even e-learning is simply less-expensive formal learning at a distance. The only way to attract, improve, and retain those assets is to offer learning. Learning makes brains physically bigger. Learning also makes them smarter. Sometimes people do learn.
