Words About Learning: Quest(ions)

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.
