What is learning?

Further to my last point, I’d like to ask anyone out there what their definition of learning is. Without thinking for too long, in my opinion it should be a transparent process, one that could be mapped. It might read like this: wondering, confusion, asking questions, organising the answers into categories, processing this data, asking more questions, sharing that information and receiving responses, debating these, synthesizing and evaluating results, and so on. Learning from mistakes is a big one. Fear of making a mistake or obsession with the right answer impedes learning. Poor Wile. E Coyote never did learn from his mistakes.

I would love to hear other people’s definitions of learning.
