How Learning Happens

Learning is often a fluid thing. You have an interest or are exposed to something and one thing leads to another. Connections are made. No curriculum is necessary, just sources of information which can be people, websites, books, video, or audio in nature.

Conversations with my kids tonight (all of which flowed from the PPGZ roleplay) included the seven deadly sins, various gods of death in different mythologies and religions, and symbolism in the book of Revelation in the Bible, especially they four horsemen of the Apocalypse. We all shared info with each other, and two computers were simultaneously in use researching topics and gathering information.
