Learning can be eased by many sorts of aids and methods. They include schemata and taxonomic knowledge. Gaining awareness, however, is different. But the two may clasp one another like two hands.
We can borrow sage words of others to aid in the cultivation of our own deep minds.
Teaching and learning are different, yet they are regularly intertwined. Both can be proficiently accomplished. Great learning is marked by pleasure, even delight, whereas lots of formal teaching may be taken to be serious business. If learning and teaching do not get well along, it is not what is fit for a good learning process that is to blame, and not a savoury environment that is congenial to solid learning either. Learning adequately is to be the top priority in schooling. One had better adhere to the dynamics of learning, and then let mastery of teaching follow suit, subserviently.
The Latin word sapiens stems from sapio, "discern, be capable of discerning". The meanings of sapiens have branched out into (the participles): discerning, wise, judicious, discreet - and (substantives like) a wise man, sage, philosopher. It also forms part of homo sapiens (man the knower). Compare homo ludens (man the player). Sapience is often understood as wisdom, or the ability of an organism or entity to act with appropriate judgement. (Picture)
From all this: Being judicious comes from able discerning. A wise one seems sincere and may be judicious. A sage masters the art of discerning profoundly. And to realise truths it helps to clarify things as well. Further: Wisdom may be understood as well applied sound knowledge.
