In a nutshell, learning is all about sharing knowledge and experience. One of the best ways to share is to network with others. Think about the social media explosion over the last decade. Whether you realized it or not – you learn something every single time you log onto Facebook to see what your friends and family are up to. Your learning experience is enhanced simply by networking with others. The more Facebook “friends” you have, the more you learn each time you read over your timeline.
Share What You Know
This site is all about networking and sharing knowledge, experience and advice with others when it comes to learning. For example, somebody might want to share a resource about finding scholarships that don’t require essays. Or what about the guy that brews his own beer at home and created an entire website to show others how to brew beer at home.
Here is a good example:
Say you’re in college and stuck in some sort of literature course that you didn’t want to take in the first place. Romeo and Juliet is required reading – but you’re just too lazy to actually read the book and you really have no interest. There is a big test coming up that accounts for a high percentage of your grade. You’re also too lazy to walk over to the bookstore and buy the Cliff notes. You find the cliff notes webpage from your laptop in your dorm room – but they just want to sell you their stuff. There’s got to be another way. You stumble onto a free site that pretty much gives away all of the information that you could otherwise get in the cliff notes. You share it here:
You’re a female who got drunk at college parties one too many times and had sex with more guys than you care to admit. You found yourself pregnant and had no idea who the father was. A year later, you have a newborn child and you are still single – yet you are determined to finish college and make something out of your life. The future of your child depends on it. Through some internet research, you find that there are actually scholarships available just for single mothers. You share it here:
It is hard to imagine what it was like before knowing how to type properly on a keyboard. Everybody has to learn at some point though. These days, most kids probably learn in grade school – or high school at the latest. What if you wanted to get a head start on your classmates and learn online ahead of time. Or maybe you are old or elderly and never learned how to type – but now you want to learn and you don’t want to go to 4th grade and sit next to a 9-year old. You find a nifty site that walks you through the entire process one lesson at a time – with visual aids on the screen. You share it here:
