Oh dear I must apologise to 3E4- I just counted how many speech topics I had up here and realised that I had left one out. Sorry, 3E4! It was not intentional, I assure you. Anyway we have Andrew who has been elected as frontman, and I wish him all the best.
How are we going to interpret the idea of learning? And what about knowledge? One way of looking at it could be to see learning as the conscious acquisition of information in an institutional setting (school!), and to see knowledge as common wisdom that we pick up through real life experiences. Do you think that spending too much time on the former actually leaves us too little time to engage in the latter?
On the other hand you could choose to disagree with the statement by arguing that learning is the acquisition of knowledge, in which case the statement would not be true at all.
Nurmatha posted a comment, but because this entry was not up yet, she had to comment under the “Tips for making a good speech” section. What about the rest of you? If you are not sure how to start, I invite you to take a look at the topics of the other classes. There are some very insightful comments up already.
