Lev Vygotsky - Thought and language are DEEPLY connected. We think with language and learning new language leads to new thoughts. Talking out loud helps internalize ideas. Once these ideas are internalized, private thinking is based on internalized conversations with those from whom you have learned new ideas.
Transformative learning is an educational experience designed to enable the adult (or teen) learner to reflect on, broaden, and even transform key elements of their perspective - their self-understanding, their beliefs, and their lifestyle.
