The Perplexity of Learning

My greatest learning experiences can never be defined as fun, fast and easy.

A clear indicator of whether I am learning or not is, whether I am feeling the discomfort or not.

In feeling that discomfort,  I must embrace the tension, exert emotional labour and be aware that I will at least once hear that voice in my head that says , “Why are you doing this? ”

We now look for learning experiences that are fun, fast and easy but what we don’t realise is, if it is was fun, fast and easy, it is not a learning experience, it is an entertaining experience.

Why the QR Code? The answer is in the request below we received from a regular blog reader.

"I attended your story telling course some time back. And I've enjoyed keeping up my knowledge with your blog. You may not have realised however, that the Whole of Government is implementing Internet Seperation. Hence I'm not able to access the links to read your articles. Could I suggest including a QR code in your emails so that I can use my mobile to scan it and gain immediate access to the article? It would be most helpful"
