Trust and Learning...l

At its most basic teaching and learning is a relationship that is based on trust. Following the ideas of Carl Rogers, learning requires trust, respect, and openness. Learning can also involve transformation, which can be painful as we confront ourselves and the world, and if possible improve our world, as Paul Friere and others believe. The process of transformation may involve conflict. Most of all, learning should be a pursuit of passion, in whatever form it takes. Philosophically, I believe learning requires fearless curiosity and conviction.

I find all of this article to be true. also i want to add that learning is a compilation of theories,tests,and or analysis of the unproven,the improvement or the verifying of established facts which can elevate other aspects of critical thinking in relative or none relative ideas or formulas.

Learning is knowing that you may trust someone enough to know that you shouldnt believe everything they say as gospel but to not take their direct word for it and find out if it is correct. Respect is key. Respect a persons opinion and if you prove them wrong through your own research, you learn to always check before you believe.
