“Anything that is worth teaching can be presented in many different ways. These multiple ways can make use of our multiple intelligences.” — Howard Gardner
Learning and teaching are about the same thing — making connections. Transferring knowledge from one source to another.
There’s an old 90s show I vaguely remember (can’t think of the title) where the main character gets into a super-powered chemical accident and suddenly develops weird abilities, one of which she can read an entire book by touching it (or something like that).
I think about this super-learning ability often. (That and learning-time-loop montages like in Groundhogs day or Palm Springs.)
Learning is a superpower. And until we can download knowledge directly into our brain like Total Recall, Teaching is also an incredible skill to cultivate.
Knowing something doesn’t mean you can teach it (or write about it).
Knowing, teaching, and writing are all three separate skills. Of course, if you can learn all three you’ll be a powerhouse of understanding.
STAY BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
