Mydlack agrees with critics on several points: Self-directed learning isn’t for all students, particularly those who he says are “over-institutionalized,” have emotional issues, or have a strong need for structure. While students are free to follow their interests, they still need a teacher to provide guidance and input. It’s also difficult for students to explain their education to college admissions officials, though Mydlack sees that changing, at least at Towson University.

self-directed learning isn’t for everyone? or is it more that we’re still lacking a mechanism to listen to and facilitate everyone’s innate ability to self-direct.. to be curious… ness

something like letting everyone be 5 again – to get us back on right/natural track of life/learning..
