Becoming a lifelong learner is critical
“The illiterate of the 21st Century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn and relearn.”
We need to re-define success
"We owe our students lessons and practice in how to learn at a fairly high level; letting them slip through without solid learning skills and superficial knowledge is.. irresponsible"
Learning is more important than IQ
"Learning how to learn through self-control, self-discipline, perseverance and determination outweighs IQ as a predictor of post-secondary academic success among children"
