Learning vs. Being Taught

          Pouring into children facts and skills of academia has become an obsession in our culture.

          Being taught does not necessarily mean true learning has taken place. Getting a perfect score on a test because one has a photographic memory is not true learning. Studies show that after twelve years of school the average person remembers from 3-5% of what she or he has been taught. One reason this happens is because the person doesn't need, isn't interest in, and often is not optimally ready for the material that is being taught. This workshop explores the differences between true learning and being taught and how we adults can provide real learning for children that is "worth their time."
