Quotable quotes

Posted on: January 10, 2016

The wisest writers devote themselves to what a man ought to know without asking what a child is capable of learning.

I should make a clarification about this quotation. 

It is not an endorsement of designing learning experiences without taking into consideration the learner. Quite the opposite.

The larger context, as written by John Dewey, is highlighted by Will Richardson. I provide the short version: We think we know what is best for kids; we do not especially if we forget what it is like to learn.
