Classroom Learning

Learning must take place in a "classroom."  A classroom does not need four walls.  It does not have to be located within a building.  The teacher does not have to be a trained professional.  The "classroom" is wherever the learner happens to be at any given moment.  Sometimes the classroom has a designated teacher/facillitator/conductor.  At other times, there is no designated conductor.  Instead there is co-constructive dialogue taking place (and this may be conscious or unconscious.)  Sometimes the learner, or others, may not realize that learning has taken place until there is a need to perform or demonstrate.
