On the drive home I was thinking about how even at 78 and 85 my parents are life long learners. Beside keeping current with new technology, they are always bettering themselves. My mother is always going to art demonstrations and has even attended Webinars to advance her techniques. My dad is always starting new projects which allows for learning. He writes news letters which promotes learning and is always learning something new with the computer!

|I always thought I was a visual learner! (Interpersonal-interesting)|
I consider myself a life-long learner. Just recently I received my Graduate degree, participated in an Edublogs teacher challenge and joined Twitter to share & learn from other educators. This has enabled me to learn new strategies and techniques to engage, motivate and help my students become life long learners themselves!
Every day presents an opportunity to learn something new. Time to go learn!
