How We Learn

In a classroom

On a sports field

With our parents

Immersed in a book

In front of the TV

Being shown the way

Confronting our fears

Staring at the sky

Playing a game

Finding our own way

With a terrible teacher

On Wikipedia

Confronting our mirror image

With our friends


Being frustrated

In the wilderness

Standing still

Doing something for the first time

With our grandparents

After the panic has faded

When we thought we knew it all

Teaching others

Trying hard to be lazy

Reading a magazine

Talking to ourselves

On a mountaintop

Doing something for the thousandth time

On the subway

By creating

Late at night

Trying to avoid work

With a great teacher

In the presence of beauty

Sneaking out

Within ourselves


About Colin Fredericks

By day I help to create online courses at HarvardX. By night I write roleplaying games.
