Learn something new online and just learn it. This article takes a look at You Can Learn a New Skill In July and Learn It Again In September and Find It Again In October.
When Learning A Skill Look Up An Account Of The Month By Month Progress Of Someone Learning Online
This post is part of a series entitled Meet The Fellow where Rosie Richardson-Crumb discusses how to use Common Sense Media resources and learn fast in a fun and immersive learning environment.
Learning comes in all shapes and sizes and I like to refer to this as “experience and adaptability”. This is more of a development mindset and applies to people who are learning at varying levels. Learning extends outside the classroom and into the real world with real worlds with real experiences. When you begin to discover some skills or concepts you really enjoy learning what a great learning environment it is. When you share that experience with a teacher or fellow student it can create a really helpful peer learning experience.
I’ve had various friends and acquaintances who have wanted to learn something more at a faster rate and often contact me for help to check out a particular page, platform, or skill. One tool that frequently comes up and we look up, is Up To Speed on Grammar, Style and Word Choice. Grammarbox is another solid tool for speeding up learning as it allows you to search and browse for advanced grammar skills to help you improve your proficiency. One other great tool is This Works on Grammar, Style and Word Choice which helps you to understand what you can do now to improve your skills.
It is helpful to educate yourself on a skill in order to improve the skill and then find a place online where you can practice the skill daily. I typically like to use Perky which is a great tool to use for search and learning. This tool is great for searching for a new skill or techniques to help you learn skills.
Here’s a little trivia question to get your brain thinking about how you can use Up To Speed for another day… are you ready to look up up some examples of the steps that you can take to give your lessons a more professional looking look and feel?
What are some typical mistakes that you come across when it comes to a lesson?
Well, this is a great time to start looking up examples. Go on over to www.up-to-speed-1.pitt, look up the example, and consider taking the same method to an online service to automate those pages and make those lessons.
What are some easy little things that you can do to get that lesson looking professional?
I’m a firm believer in using recommendations when reviewing lessons but it is not always 100% necessary. A good website for images of how to use something is Like a Picture. You will not find them all but you should be able to get a good sampling of a particular tool and how to use it.
Always give some notes and questions to the teacher at the end of a lesson. If they want to help you with your lesson, always be willing to answer their questions.
Nailing down when you have a master story can be hard but remember the basics first? Read this FAQ and find the answers below. You won’t find many there but they get the job done and you’ll be ahead of the game.
One more thing… now that you’ve taken a lesson you can use This Works so that your lessons will be even more refined so that they are structured with a theme or lesson that you’ve identified. This means that you’re giving lessons to a more sophisticated audience and that will make your lessons more effective.
Looking to really get started to implement a better system to help you to learn?
I encourage you to talk with your local parents educator! They can help guide you with some best practices and to see what you can do at the high school level to make things a bit more more customized and better suited to your goals. My hats off to all the folks who help us succeed!
