Defining Self-Directed Learning
The one word I have come up with so far to characterize something that is so completely governed by each individual, is organic as in alive. The only other way I can think of defining self-directed learning is to determine what it is not.
Self-Directed Learning, also called independent learning, is not driven by teachers, curriculum or the State Department of Education.
It is not rigid or harsh.
It is not one size fits all.
It is not quiet.
It is not passive.
It is not lonely or anti-social.
It is not tests.
It is not superficial or narrow.
It is not disengaged.
It is not specific knowledge.
It is not distrust.
It is not difficult.
It quite simply is life.
