Watch each other and copy or adapt what they see.
They go off by themselves to practice "hard bits".
They ask their own questions and select their own "teachers".
They make scruffy notes and diagrams to help them think and plan.
They create half baked ideas and possibilities and try them out.
They run through things in their head imagining how things might play out.
They imagine themselves doing something better and use this to guide their practice. NOW, wouldn’t it be wonderful if we saw this reflected in how we "do business" in our schools – and universities! SO, three books you gotta read:
Building Learning Power: Helping Young People Become Better Learners by Guy Claxton
What's the Point of School?: Rediscovering the Heart of Education by Guy Claxton
New Kinds of Smart: How the Science of Learnable Intelligence is Changing Education by Bill Lucas and Guy Claxton
