Another wonderful comment: "a child grows and learns by their own effort" and "it is not what we do to children but what we enable them to do themselves." Allowing children to create their own learning by ensuring that our environments are richly resourced with open ended resources that offer experiences and opportunities to play with their own ideas will support children to learn through their own effort. Remembering David Perkins words:
It is never just problem solving it involves problem finding.
It’s not just about right answers. It involves explanation and justification.
It’s not emotionally flat.
It involves curiosity, discovery, creativity and camaraderie."
