Informal Learning in Everyday Practice: Getting to Know a City and Its Symbols

Inge de Waard, Ignatia, Mar 10, 2009
Commentary by Stephen Downes

I have in the past compared formal learning with exploring a city by being kidnapped and forcibly driven around a city, and informal learning with exploring a city in any other way: by joining a tour group, using a city map, riding a city bus, traveling with a friend, or (my favorite) wandering aimlessly without a map and only the vaguest idea of a destination. People, as Ignatia suggests, laugh at the concept of informal learning - but most would never explore a city any other way but informally.
