  • Brazilian Paolo Freire defined learning as an act of knowing.
  • I define an Autonomous Learner as someone who had constructed their own learning, who had this “knowing” at an advanced level, sufficient for understanding it and being able to rephrase it. Whilst not an “expert”, the level of expertise is high (Advanced Systematised Knowing). This has been achieved through time, through repeatedly going through many acts of knowing.
  • Technology allows Autonomous Learners to interact without meeting face-to-face. The level of systematised knowing may differ but it is sufficient in these for the level of understanding to be high.
  • An autonomous learner interacting with one or more autonomous learners. An act of knowing will occur, if this adaptation of Friere holds, when another autonomous learner interacts so that his/her (or other’s) knowledge is slightly more systematised.
  • An autonomous learner interacting with one or more autonomous learners. An act of knowing will occur, if this adaptation of Friere holds, when another autonomous learner interacts so that his/her (or other’s) knowledge is slightly more systematised. The more dialogue (defined here not to be just verbal but written too), the more interaction with the environment, the more systematised the knowledge becomes.
  • There is the possibility of the act of knowing to be useful both ways, with the synthesis achieving a slightly higher systematisation in the original autonomous learner.
