Trying to explain learning to anyone is a challenge I think. I feel as though the term “learning” is not just one straight forward definition. If I had to explain it to someone who hasn’t taken this class, my old definition would have been simply any information gathered and stored in the brain through the use of our five senses. Taking this class, and critically reading the text given, has made me realize that my explanation of learning was only partially correct.

My technical reasoning causes me to have trouble asking for help. I don’t like asking for help and would prefer to figure things out on my own when I get confused.

As previously stated, my confluence is only at an as needed level. I am so dependent on structure and preciseness that it takes away from my creativity. I can surely intensify this pattern to help me better brainstorm new and interesting ideas. This would help me create more interesting papers that the reader can make personal connections
