Famous quotes containing the word learner:

    Bad times have a scientific value. These are occasions a good learner would not miss.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The learner always begins by finding fault, but the scholar sees the positive merit in everything.
    Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831)

    There is, I think, no point in the philosophy of progressive education which is sounder than its emphasis upon the importance of the participation of the learner in the formation of the purposes which direct his activities in the learning process, just as there is no defect in traditional education greater than its failure to secure the active cooperation of the pupil in construction of the purposes involved in his studying.
    John Dewey (1859–1952)
