Educational Quotations – Thoughts 5
“We need to move beyond the idea that an education is something provided for us, and toward the idea that an education is something that we create for ourselves.”
~ Stephen Downes
Do not wait!
It is, after all, your education. You should take control and begin looking at how you can improve your own understanding of topics and courses.
It will help you to learn more. Also, it will make learning a lot more fun.
When you get involved you will soon discover ideas, questions, and thoughts you never had before; and, working through these, will help you to create your own education.
I always say that all learners should be teachers, and all teachers should be learners. One of the best ways to remember something in all its wonderful intricate detail is to teach someone else. This action solidifies the material for yourself. Also, while you are explaining you often find new ways of looking at the material.
So don’t just be a receptacle or a milk container!
Jump into your own education, grab it, and make it work for you.
