Learning as Transformation

22 03 2010

I recently stumbled across a website which looks at the idea of “Learning as Transformation” and sure did hit the mark.

As an educator I find myself in search more and more these days for the  elusive “mark” many of us have been missing.
Every now and then I do experience a glimpse of it in a lesson which comes to life through a “spontaneous emancipation from mindless questioning to something real and meaningful.”
Somehow something happens in the lesson where both students and teacher find themselves deeply engaged in the content.

These lessons are far too few and far apart these days and I only wish I could make it happen more often.

Have a read of this site and let me know your thoughts.
