We Need to Unlearn!

From Edutopia
‎"If we’re going to keep making sense of an ever-shifting world, we need to unlearn the idea that learning occurs only in school. We need to unlearn that our own learning and our students' learning is limited by time and space, " educator Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach. What else do you think we should "unlearn?" Bonus points for posts that begin with.."We need to unlearn.."
Passion-Based Learning: An Interview with Sheryl Nussbaum-BeachBy Heather Wolpert-Gawron.
We need to unlearn that learning is an individual pursuit. We need to unlearn that we have to be the experts in our classrooms. We need to unlearn that leading is only for the leaders in the front office. That means we have to really help many teachers learn how to unlearn.
