Welcome to my blog. You are invited to journey with me as we explore learning. Before you decide that this topic has no relevance to you, let me present evidence to the contrary. You are, after all, able to read this paragraph right now because you learned to read at some earlier time. You can also tell me how many letters are in the first word of this paragraph, because once upon a time you learned to count. Just like me, you are an experienced learner. Learning is something we all do, and have done since we were infants. As both a scientist and an educator, I derive great pleasure from seeking truth, acquiring knowledge, experimenting with it, and then sharing that knowledge and experience with others. This blog is my way to share what I have learned, and am still learning, with you. Join me as we ask questions, seek answers, digest old angles to the learning debate, explore new ideas that make learning exciting for children and adults alike, and take down the intimidating monsters that have guarded the gates to learning for too long.
