Overheard on the train today, from an 8 year old

3 February, 2010

First day back at school for our protagonist, and she was telling her big sister (age 10) what she’d learned today. After describing in various forms all the day’s activities, she ended by saying “It doesn’t sound like I learned much but it’s all learning really”.

S’funny because at work there’s the ongoing debate about learning vs training. Perhaps I should get little miss eight-years going on she-could-do-my-job to come and speak about it.

PS: I wanted to tell her Dad to treasure and nurture that little girl (and her sister because she was the one who asked eight-y what she’d learned at school). If they’re the future, cool. Hope they grow up to be designers.
