ADULT LEARNING
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CHILDREN AND ADULTS AS LEARNERS
CHILDREN   ADULTS
• Rely on others to decide what is important to    be learned
• Accept the information being presented at face    value
• Expect that what they are learning will be   useful in their long-term future
• Have little or no experience upon which to   draw—are relatively "clean slates’’
• Have little ability to serve as a knowledgeable   resource to teacher or fellow classmates
• Are content centered
• Are less actively involved
• Learn in an authority-oriented environment
• Planning is teacher’s responsibility 
  • Decide for themselves what is important to be    learned
• Need to validate the information based on    their beliefs and experiences
• Expect that what they are learning is    immediately useful
• Have much past experience upon which to   draw—may have fixed viewpoints
• Have significant ability to serve as a   knowledgeable resource to the facilitator and   group members
• Are problem centered
• Actively participate
• Function best in a collaborative environment
• Share in planning
