From Dr.’s in Education to Dr. Seuss, Learning and Teaching Are Peas in a Pod

Learning and Teaching should not stand on opposite banks and just watch the river flow by; instead, they should embark together on a journey down the water. Through an active, reciprocal exchange, teaching can strengthen learning how to learn.”

–       Loris Malaguzzi (1920–1994), Italian early childhood education specialist. Quoted in The Hundred Languages of Children, ch. 3,     by Carolyn Edwards (1993).

                       In other words…

“It is better to know how to learn than to know.”
