To be resourceful is to be able to adapt to different learning challenges. This is about having the tools of a good learner and the skills with which to deploy those tools. A child who is never involved in positive decisions about her own learning will not have the attribute of resourcefulness. If, for whatever reason, a child develops a presupposition that learning is a passive activity, then the ability to make autonomous decisions about applying skills and utilising learning tools will be significantly diminished. To be resourceful is also to be willing to take the risk of learning, which may involve revealing ignorance or making mistakes.
