These 4 Movie Scenes Are Reminders of What's Important in Learning

1.  A great learning lesson typically starts with a great story.

2.  Life & learning are adventures to be shared passionately without fear of failure.

3.  Deep, meaningful learning occurs through grit, determination, & resiliency.

4.  Inquiry, great questions, & reflection feed our hungry brains.

Finally, why are these, and other, movie scenes so deeply entrenched in our memories? One reason is that emotion applies a layer of significance to the learning experience. Another reason is many of us are able to find a relationship between the scene's message and our personal experiences or learning schemas.

I am interested in hearing from you. Please share a favorite movie scene along with an explanation of how it fits into your personal learning schema.
