Learning for me at this current point in my journey would be described more like a 'awakening' or a 'catalyst'.
This is because it appears as a small insight like a fish hitting the surface of a perfectly reflective calm pond and then continues to ripple out in uncontrollable circles in my life. However it usually isn't at the point of a event, it is when glancing back upon that event that I become aware of my learning.
Upon reflection of my sharing with students that in order to have this deep understanding of their learning we MUST first give them the time to recognize that learning in themselves.
I guess this is something I always new but in these busy 21st century learning times with so much pressure on the speed & accuracy of what they and we do, I really needed to reinforce this in my head!
