LearningPlurality

For 36 years I have been in a career dedicated to causing learning to happen - in others.

Through that process, I have consistently been confronted with the reality that learning is a social construct.  Learning can happen in isolation, but it happens at a much greater speed when it's done with others.  When I somehow participate in the learning of others, my own learning is accelerated.  It's a push-pull sort of dynamic.  

Now, more than any other time in the history of our species, learning with others is at our fingertips (even if we are home alone).  And, more than any other time in the history of our species, we get to pick who we learn with.  

Pick the topic, pick the group, pick the time, pick the desired outcomes.  Others are awaiting your thinking, your questions, your ideas, your contribution, your pushback, your knowledge, your stimulus.

There is absolutely no limit to how much we can learn together...
