Learning Skills

Much has been said and written about the importance of learning. But what does it really mean?
At its most basic, it means being open to new experiences and ideas, and allowing ourselves to grow from what we encounter in the world.
Children are like little sponges. They learn from everything that they encounter, whether mud, toys, books or people. Everything is an opportunity for experimentation and therefore for learning.
As adults, it can be hard to remember and recapture that excitement about the world but that is what is needed for successful learning.
