Education & Learning – Are they the same?

Standard

“The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education.”

Albert Einstein

We have sold ourselves into a fast food model of education, and it’s impoverishing our spirit and our energies as much as fast food is depleting our physical bodies.” 

Sir Ken Robinson

The age old debate of whether education and learning are the same is gaining momentum. Never before has education been so valuable and yet, whether learning has occurred is now being questioned.  We have the technology that allows us to communicate and transfer knowledge across the globe in a matter of seconds; the possibilities for advancement are virtually limitless.  Yet, in our dangerously divided world, this potential can only be realized when our learning institutions raise the hopes and spirits of humanity.  Only then can we, as a global community, learn to seek peaceful solutions, embrace diversity and experience a renaissance.
