Learning, The Tool Of The Future

– #33 –

Education, formal and informal, is essential to our lives. In fact, we can’t avoid it. Try to go through a day and not learn anything at all. You cannot not learn something; it’s impossible.┬áSo how do we make our learning meaningful?

I ran across this visual of a learning cycle that I found helpful:

Go ahead and start anywhere on this cycle. You’ll go around and around forever. I’ve found the evaluation process is the most useful aspect of any learning cycle. This is where you get to see where you came from and where you are now, then you reset your goals.

Have you found an effective learning cycle that helps keep you sharp?
