In a conversation today I was chatting about all the learning I have done through ‘play’. You know the sort of thing – I wonder if I can do a blog, have a go and find out all sorts of ‘stuff’.
I know that I’ve learnt loads this way and generally enjoyed it but there could never be an exam and even if there was I wouldn’t want to do it because then I wouldn’t be following MY interest but rather following a curriculum path.
My questions are:
1. Is this sort of learning valid in school
and if so
2. How can we capture this? (or perhaps should we try?)
I look forward to your comments.
