Reflecting back on my learning journey reminds me of a snow road. In order to drive along this road the snow needs to be scraped to the side or the car will get stuck in the deep snow. Each time more snow falls this process is repeated so that traffic can flow and not pile up in a chaotic traffic jam. I liken the learning journey to this snow road because everyday new knowledge fills up our path and if we do not scrape it and store it on the side by attaching meaning and relevance, eventually all the new knowledge will just form a confusing mass in our learning journey. Reflection is the best snow shovel for learning, or should I rather say it is the best snowplough!
There is no end to education. It is not that you read a book, pass an examination, and finish with education. The whole of life, from the moment you are born to the moment you die, is a process of learning.
