Use Technology to Help You Learn

In the palm of your hand, there is technology that can help you learn almost anything. I know it is a popular saying that “it’s not what you know, it’s who you know.” At the same time, in order to succeed, you must know things, educate yourself and continually update your knowledge base. Once upon a time people thought of higher education or continuing education as something you had to leave your home to do. Then technology put mini computers aka smart phones in the hand and pocket of almost every person in America. What this means is that instead of you going to the source of education, you can bring the education to you.  This can be done via ebooks, independent online courses, open courseware and online courses at colleges and universities.

  • We hit the local library at least once a week. It is absolutely amazing though how many things are at our fingertips. I've see so many free courses offered. I plan to take advantage of a few.

  • Technology can either be a blessing or a curse I have found!
    I have found that thru it new opportunities have been opened to me.
    there is no way as a mother of 4 I would be able to attend university if it wasn't for eclasses.
    Love that I am slowly changing who I am and technology is at the helm!

  • We were just talking about how different it was when I was in school versus my daughter now. We didn't have any technology to speak of when I was in school.

  • I've tried Coursera before and it was a lot of fun. Udemy is a good one too. I just bought one from Creative Live too.

  • The immediate availability or educational resources (in the palm of our hand) really does make such a difference in the world. I'd like to go back to school and finish my degree. It's time for me to really commit and do it.

  • I can't imagine school now without electronic devices. Free learning on the Kindle is awesome. We have so much at our fingertips!

  • Technology sure has come a long way! It's ever evolving. Thanks for these resources!

  • It is so important to keep learning...thanks for this list of ecourses.

  • What you written is so true. There is very few excuses for people to remain in ignorance. The learning potentials are HUGE!

  • I'm about to take a Pinterest course. I'm all about staying up to date on the latest tech tips and tricks!
