Take Control of Your Education

I am a big proponent of discovery learning. Let children discover on their own and they will retain more. Don’t you?

Here is a link from the Change Agency. Stephanie writes on how discovery learning can really bring a relevancy back to teaching history.

And if we are talking about learning on our own, why not include one of the greatest resources for self-learning ever. The Open University. Open University offers real college programs over the internet. The price is something everyone can enjoy, FREE!

  1. Education is way way more than what happens in the class room. It’s what kids talk about around the family dinner table, the attitudes of their parents, being taught respect for other people, their possessions, their viewpoints and accountability. Responsibility for their role, good or bad, day to day makes progress, solutions, and causes growth, is productive.

  3. That wasn’t the point of this post, but you make a good point.

    What happens in the home in regards to learning is just as important as the classroom. However, we should not expect that all parents will instill their children with good moral values (which I must add can be somewhat relative), or take an active role in their growth and development. Some parents are abusive and some just plain don’t care.

    My main point of this post was children learn better when allowed to find things out for themselves (with some direction of course) rather than just being lectured to.
