Lessons Without Limit is not just another book about school reform but a highly readable guide to transforming the entire experience of learning across a lifetime. Free-choice learning is all about what you choose to do in your learning time. We learn every day-at home, at school, at work, and out in the world, from books, in museums, watching television, hearing a symphony, building a model rocket. Our motivations and expectations change over our lifetime but learning never stops. This book will give you a new understanding of the learning process and guide you in maximizing your lifelong learning journey.
John Falk and Lynn Dierking are founders and directors of the Institute for Learning Innovation in Annapolis, Maryland. Their books include Learning from Museums, The Museum Experience, and Free-Choice Science Education.
