Teaching is doing.

How do you cultivate learning without doing? How can you create a learning experience without active experimentation, exploration, examination?

Some people can learn passively; our current education system is generally catered to this style of learning. What about our students who learn better actively? Our current education system all too often overlooks the capacities of these children, identifying their failures as learners rather than the failures of our systems to provide and allow for authentic learning experiences.

Even still, the process of learning is never passive. It is always active. Something within and between us is transitioned, translated, transformed. Learning always involves setting things into motion; learning is transmotion. Learning produces new forms of knowledge, challenges and changes our current forms of knowledge, leads to future developments of knowledge. Learning is fluid, active, adaptive, alive. No rigid system can limit this perpetual motion.
