01. The Modern Learners Lens

Many people think they know what learning means, but often these beliefs go unexamined and can be oversimplified or even misleading.

Our intentions are usually honorable when we think of learning. But when these good intentions result in total or partial failures, we are disappointed and puzzled. We direct blame to various factors. Rarely do we ask though if it’s possible that our conception of learning was faulty, grossly simplistic, or in need of an overhaul or even discarded.

In this episode, we discuss why we need to reevaluate our understanding of learning, differentiate between learning and achievement, and remind our listeners that at Modern Learners, our focus is on learning.
