About I Am Learner
IN 2011, I wrote a prose-poem - "I Am Learner" - that attempted to distil my personal philosophy of education into as few words as I could manage.
The result was published initially on my personal education blog.
It is a philosophy that places special importance on the teacher's understanding of how we, as individuals, ultimately determine our own learning. That does not detract from the teacher's role or responsibility. Indeed, it increases that responsibility hugely and it places an onus on the teacher to reflect deeply on the nature of learning, and the nature of teaching.
Fundamentally, it states that what is taught is rarely if ever what is learned!
