The very first step in learning is simply exposure

The title of this post comes from a recent post by Helene Blowers.

Helene is the architect of the original 23 Things program, which first ran in 2006.  I am currently exploring how we might run our own version of 23 Things here at Oxford.   Helene writes about learning through self-discovery, and how children are encouraged to do this, but seldom are adults.

As I continue to develop my ideas about an Oxford 23 Things scheme, I am keeping self-discovery at the heart of the project.

Read her complete post here, and a post by Richard Wiseman about the importance of curiosity here.
