It turns out that there’re at least five things you can do with a bucket of urine. This is what you learn when you spend the day with a nine year old who has just completed his latest history project at school.
Well, actually, he only knew of three things that you could do with it. I added that you can can use it to tan leather and, most brilliantly of all for an excitable child, make gunpowder.
So together we knew five things. Sharing.
Alongside this guttural conversation, I also spent time with an adult, discussing the impacts of the funding cuts on higher education, blogging software and finding your ‘tone of voice‘ when writing. Sharing experiences, sharing ideas, sharing half formed thoughts.
You can learn in isolation, but the world is a richer place when you share.
The blog has been on holiday all this week, so we hope you enjoyed our Five Words about Learning.
