Peter Gray on Learning
Podcast: Play in new window
Peter Gray has conducted and published research in neuroendocrinology, developmental psychology, anthropology, and education
Peter Gray is a developmental psychologist, research professor and author. In his latest book Free to Learn, Mr. Gray writes about how all people are born to be self-directed learners.
It was a real honor to talk with Peter and ask him a few questions for The Unschooling Life podcast. In this episode we hear about self-directed education in general, and about the things he learned by interviewing adults who spent their childhood as self-directed learners.
Mr. Gray’s article about his survey of grown unschoolers can be found on his blog for Psychology Today called Freedom to Learn.
And that’s Bar Scott’s beautiful voice at the end there.
