I just love when I come across someone who has a philosophy that is similar to mine. Learning should be about learning how to learn not focused on just making sure students learn certain information. In a society where what we know is growing exponentially much of the content that will be taught to our children in school will be outdate by the time they graduate. So, it is important to teach students how to learn because that is a skills they will need for a lifetime. Watch this great video about this topic.
