How do you learn?

I just love this ad:


Learning how people learn and then customizing education to fit their needs – we need to recognize that learning today might not be what it was back when people looked to the teacher for all information and guidance.

How do you learn? How does learning happen for you, naturally, outside of the requirements of school? Tell me a story of when you wanted to learn something and you learned it. What motivated you? What did you do to learn? How did you learn? Did you learn? Is that knowledge still with you?
