    OOOHHH.. NIC! I liked the top 10 approach ala David Letterman and the Late Show! Creative. I failed to consider what are my own personal philosophies on how I learn. Like you, the social aspect for me is enormous. I thrive in an environment where I can hear everyone’s ideas and hone my own. I would toss in a motivation theory for me too. Motivation can be one of my largest hurdles – and probably mix in some engagement too. I tend to mind wander! 🙂 I like the visual you created too. The platform lays it out nice and succinct.

    I share Scott’s ooo! This is a really interesting way to present your reflections on learning theory.
    What I really like about it, Nic, is that you’ve made a clear connection between the sometimes common-sense points in your top ten and the theorists who have expanded on the points.
    I think my favourite of your points is the reflection that learning can occur both alone and in a social setting. I think this point is often overlooked by writers who favour one or the other.
