This question – Who do you learn most from? – was put to students in different countries with some surprising results. Most students did not immediately think of teachers. This was unexpected because we might assume that learning is so closely associated with school that this would be the obvious response. It is all the more surprising in countries like Japan and the Czech Republic where students tend to evaluate their learning in relation to how much the teacher tells them. But, in fact, students defined their learning and sources of their learning in broader terms, thinking of family and friends and as driven by their own interests and motivation. What emerges as a singular strand throughout these inquiries is the intrinsic drivers of learning – you learn, in school or out, because you are interested.
