Listen, Learn, Engage

As young kids we are taught to sit and listen to the teacher, not to challenge, not to share our own experiences, not to craft and design learning around our interests.

Rather, many of us were taught to be passive and simply believe and use all the information the person standing up in front of us was sending our way. After all, they were the experts.
