meaningful, depends on imagination, risk-taking, intention, and invention.
Stripped of these elements, teaching is mechanical and sterile and learning
is the stuff of pigeons pecking for food or mice running a maze.
Exactly, There is training and there is education...not necessarily the same!
And of course the saying about giving fish and learning to fish!
