Round and round we go, and where we stop, nobody knows. We could be talking about a carnival ride of course, but actually we are referring to the process of education.
Learning from books and other people’s thoughts is an important element in education. Tried and true facts like 2+2 = 4 are necessary to study, as they are the building blocks of our future learning.
But how do you get from there to original and creative thinking?
Can the same process of rote memorization teach creativity? Or must it evolve and flow from us when inspired by certain events and experiences?
More importantly, what do we do with this new insight and understanding? Take a peek here at what Haim Ginott had to say about this.
There are many styles of learning. As long as we continue down the path of self-discovery, we eventually stumble upon the methods best suited to our own uniqueness.
