Teaching or Experiencing


The construction of understanding and learning not only is natural in children (just how a toddler constructed a whole mother tongue) it is the way they enhance their cognitive powers. The child uses his thinking to experiment, to know, to make sense, to create his own learning. The child naturally explores, invents, copies from peers, from resources, from the whole world.

In place of us teaching, if we let the child’s teachers be experiences, explorations, experiments, and expressions. Maybe this way the child may not know what we know, the way we know, but this way the child will learn how to know.
