When we are encouraged to self-motivate and self-direct, wonderful things can happen. Connection and empowerment becomes the foundation of learning rather than obligation or resentment. When we learn through our own initiation and inspiration the learning becomes so much more memorable. When we create time and space to self-direct we create a space for passionate growth. Not only should we value that kind of space for young people as learners but for ourselves as adults learning. It is in these unstructured and supportive spaces that ideas and curriculum emerge for all.
