Quote: “The most obvious way to acquire such knowledge is through active attempt to achieve various goals in a
variety of domains, that is, by learning through one’s own direct contingent experience.”

Interpretation: In today’s society you may have to do some independent work to figure out how to solve some issues. Although group work is a great way to solve issues sometimes it’s your own individual research that can help figure out an issue.

Quote: “There are, then, three modes of experiencing which map onto the three forms of representation discussed earlier by Bruner (1966) as enactive, iconic, and symbolic.”

Interpretation: Taking action in experiences and observations help represent different approaches to learning and expanding your knowledge.

Quote: “We have, as already noted, three principal means of interacting with and constructing the world: by acting upon it, by observing it, and by learning by
being told or reading about it.

overlooked while attempting to learn.

Our thoughts: We’ve discovered that all of our quotes relate to learning and discovering the world through observations and experience.
