In this surprising chat Brooke and Kelly talk about learning styles, school and how a lack of critical thinking skills impacted them as young adults.
Most weeks Kel and Brooke sit down to chat with a topic in mind, and they have a decent idea of where the conversation will end up. Then there are conversations like today’s.
They could have spoken about the things they’ve been learning recently, or the ways in which information has changed their points of view. Instead, they went the literal route and started off talking about school! Kel loved school and missed about 5 days in total, while Brooke was often found loitering in the sick bay, coming up with reasons why she wouldn’t attend the next day.
Interestingly though, both Kel and Brooke had similar learning experiences throughout school and both needed to develop their critical thinking skills significantly as young adults.
The conversation does eventually come back to how Brooke and Kel each prefer to learn, as well as the cycles of learning they each find themselves in. Sometimes they can’t get enough new information while other times you’ll find them curled up in bed reading The Hunger Games for the 67th time.
