A first conclusion that can be drawn from the above presented survey of approachesto learning is the basic understanding that learning itself is social or behavioralchange. Learning not only leads to social and behavioral change but is the changeprocess itself. Learning and change are integrated. This is an important perspectiveto incorporate in designing rural learning interventions, and Beers madeit clear by making a distinction between learning outcomes and learning impacts.The learning process and the learning outcomes together are to be seen as communicative interaction. The process and outcomes of learning are thus to beseen as social and/or behavioral change and this change leads to impact.
