Me, As A Learner

  • What motivates you to learn?
New information about a topic that interests me. If the new information is bringing value to me or othres.

  • What must you have in order for your learning to be successful?
In order for my learning to be successful, I need reflection time. I also enjoy collaboration with others where we
can discuss and debate parts of the new information.

  • What causes you to pay attention, even if the topic you’re studying is not your favorite?
    If the topic is presented in a new way or with an engaging activity, I will pay attention. If it is just presented in a boring way, I will still pay attention if necessary but it becomes a real chore. The engaging activity is always preferable.
  • What makes you shut down?
Lack of respect, people talking down to me. I also shut down when things are mandated without understanding the reason for them.

  • How can we create or avoid these conditions in our learning community?
People are motivated by different factors but most people who work in a creative field are driven by purpose. If we mantain a respectful relationship with students and continually give them opportunities to make meaning of their world through purposeful activities, i think we can avoid these pitfalls.
