Who can define learning? What does it mean?
We asked some of our students to tell us what learning means to them. As we start back into the new learning week in DALC after our long St. Patrick’s weekend, we can focus on learning in our different classes yet remember that the benefits and joy of learning for everyone is individual.
This is what some of our evening students told us recently when we asked ‘What is Learning?’:
“Learning is freedom.” Patrick.
“Learning is all about broadening your mind and also working your brain harder. It helps your everyday life. It’s good for our education and to tell us what is going on in the world.” Elizabeth.
“Learning is the way out of poverty.” John.
“Learning is a discovery of knowledge. Even in everyday life you are learning.” Anon
“Learning is very good for you. It broadens your mind and it stands to you in the future because when you get older you can remember all you are taught. ” Fran.
“Learning is good but it is sometimes very hard because I find it hard to remember. Then again, it must be working because I thought I would never read a novel or two, or 52!” Philip.
Heading in to your next few weeks of learning – what does learning mean for you? Bring it on!
