So there is that danger in the language of learning. In part of my work I go even further because I think that learning in itself is also a very particular way in which we engage with the world, for example.
Two options here then: Critique the word "learning" and stop using it (Biesta) or reframe and redefine it (perhaps what Britzman or Kress have done?)
. And learning can mean different things so I often give a couple of examples where the word learning is used like learning to ride a bike or learning that 2 and 2 equals 4 but also learning to be patient or learning that you’re not good at something.
I like the examples here. And the anxiety and frustration that goes with learning that you are not good at something (Britzman)
