the social dynamics

What's changed most for me is a recognition of the social dynamics of fostering inquiry.  I had been thinking of it as fostering self-discovery for individuals. But I'm really taken by this idea of the tension of different points of view and how those resonances stimulate each individual's learning.  And I really like the idea of "truth" as a story that changes as new information challenges those "truths" and that a teacher who fosters learning will help her students be comfortable with that unsettled feeling of have fewer certainties.
