I spent the evening in a small town American bar, chatting to different customers, asking questions. Learning. I learnt about Puerto Rica, about the end of the Spanish colony, about American territories, unemployment and opportunity. I learnt by talking, by asking questions, through curiosity.
Learning may be about stories told, but equally it can be about questions asked: about the quest for knowledge. In a social context, these learning journeys are not structured, but rather emergent, according to community, circumstance and opportunity. And they are all the richer for it.
Words about learning is an occasional series of posts reflecting on aspects of learning in a more poetic or reflective style.
