Recipe for Learning

5: Make it fun

If I’m not having fun, I’m not learning. It’s that simple.

This simple recipe for learning found on, run by Alexander Kjerulf. is so true.  We learn best when we are involved and so completely mesmerized by what we are learning that we are truly having fun!  I remember when I was a child my Girl Scout leader took us to the telephone company.  We were learning how phones worked (in those days.)  As we went deep into the telephone building and saw all the wires and cables I was learning as fast as I could.  I can still feel my intense involvement, although I can’t remember all that I learned.  I can say, I was having fun!
