Summarizing Learn for Yourself

Jay Cross

I just copied a rough draft of my new book, Learn For Yourself , into a free summarizer. It’s all a matter of learning, but it’s not the sort of learning that is the province of training departments, workshops, and classrooms. You are learning to learn how to become the person you wrote the obit for. It’s learning to know versus learning to be. Most of what we learn, we learn by interacting with others.

I think we are way too sloppy in talking about learning. but why do we keep on talking about learning without being precise what we are talking about? I am currently in the Exploring Social Learning MOOC by Curatr and it is great. elearning language social learnin
