"Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning." Albert Einstein
When you are a group you need to think of ideas and help people when there stuck on something. Do not tell them the answer just help them find the answer. If they still can't find the answer then use a different strategy. This is what I think good learning is.
To be a good learner you need to have positive attitude and able to share ideas and knowledge, also you need to be a good listener and good concentration and asking help when needed.
I agree with you Anuraag and Ilyas.To be a good learning you need to have ideas, a can do attitude and need to be able to focus.You also need to be honest by saying if you don't know something and not saying that you do.
Whoops....meant 'to be a good learner'!!
To me to be a good learner you have to:> Contribute ideas and suggestions in a group situation> Listen to others> Being respectful of others> Staying on task> Being honest about what you know and you don't> Holding your head up high> Having a positive attitude> Being confident and not giving upThis is what I think being a learner is!
I strongly agree with you Lily. A good learner need to try and improve at the things they are not so confident in.
Good learners always have a positive attitude towards new things and are willing to give things a go and will always try to push beyond the working expectation. By Daniel
A good learner is always gives learning ideas towards the group or just by themselves!They also need to have a good attitude so they can focus on what they are doing!
I think good learning looks like people putting their heads down and working well. It involves having fun but also mixing that with proper learning and discipline.
I agree with Lilly and Rose .I think good learning is focusing, sharing ideas,staying on task, always being positive, being honest with what you know. That is what I think good learning is.

I agree with what everybody else has said. I also think that to be a good learner you need to enjoy yourself and have fun while still staying on task
A good learner is -Confident -Curious -Use their imagination-Work sociably-Work with others easily -Stays on task Thsi si what a good learner does
I think that good learners should be all the criteria that Guy Claxton set out but I also think that they should also be able to do other things. Like be able to just knuckle down and work, they should know the benefits of homework and finally one of the most important things particularly at intermediate and college is to have good time management and organisational skills.

Alex UGood learning looks like engaged and enthusiastic learners, who are taking in information, and then are able to use and build on it. I think a being a good learner is making sure you pay attention, participate in team discussions, listen, analyse and to ask questions if you need more understanding. A good learner should be able to be use what they have learnt outside of the classroom. I also think that you need to understand how you learn in order to know what environment best supports your learning, and that a home and school partnership is really important for us to be good learners.
I think good learning involves not being distracted, wanting to learn and good learners are adept (I didn't pick that word) at listening. Good learners can also encourage others to learn as well.
