A learning identity is a knowledge about how one learns , their views about their own ability to learn. I can see myself as one with a learning identity because I engage experiences with a learning attitude and believe in myself. In my opinion if a person doesn't believe they can learn a certain thing they will not learn it. That is why I taught myself to keep an open mind when learning new topics. This identity can develop over time from consistently having an open mind and willing to learn new topics. This is something I've been doing for a while and it helps me to be a better student. Of course there will be times you do not understand topics but working through them only helps you grow as an individual. By learning this way you know all your strengths and what strategies help you learn the best.
