Thoughts on Learning
What does it mean to you? Learning is way to obtain information and become more knowledgeable about a topic. I enjoy learning for the most part; it’s a way to satiate curiosity (briefly).
When is it easy for you? Difficult? It’s easiest when I am genuinely interested in whatever it is I’m learning about, and difficult when I’m not.
Outside of school, what do you enjoy learning most? Why? I like learning new skills because those often have practical uses.
Why do you think some people are better learners than others? I think for some people circumstance has forced some people to develop good learning techniques and some to develop poor ones. I do believe also there is at least some genetic component that can offer some advantages/ disadvantages.
How do you think you can stack the deck in your favor when it comes to learning?Studying early. Good scheduling. Make good habits. Be healthy.
Who has taught you the most in life? Do you have any mentors? Of course my parents are probably the ones who have taught me the most (is my privilege showing?) as well as family. I have also learned plenty from friends and also just from my own personal experiences. No one person comes to mind when it comes to mentors, or at least for the picture I have in my mind for mentors.
