What Learning is All About

Check out this video from Edutopia. In it, a teacher and his students are learning together – not just about math curricula, but about how to collaborate and communicate, how to honour diverse talents and learning, and they are learning how to learn. This is was school is about!

Honouring the ideas and contributions of all learners, without judgment, is a cornerstone of social-emotional wellbeing. Pay attention to the script at 3:25 – “…Not necessarily saying that’s a good idea or a bad idea, but thank you for your idea.”

Enjoy the video!
