Thing #2 - Learning vs. Training

Listen to this podcast:

Among libraries, lifelong learning is one of those core values we shelve our books by. So it makes sense that before we embark on this new online learning and discovery journey that we should take a few minutes to review a few habits that can assist in creating lifelong learners.

These habits, which we’ve called the Seven and 1/2 Habits of Highly Successful Lifelong Learners, will provide you with a refresher on what it means to be a lifelong learner. It will talk about a learning contract; please disregard. We're all friends; no need for contracts! Unless you are a lawyer...just kidding.

Discovery Exercise:

  1. Make sure you have headphones or speakers attached to your computer.
  2. Open up the 7 & 1/2 Habits online tutorial and view the online tutorial.
  3. As you watch and listen, write down which habit among the 7 & 1/2 that is easiest for you and which is hardest. You will use your personal blog (which you will set up next) to post your thoughts about lifelong learning. When you are watching the 7 & 1/2 Habits, you can ignore the section on the learning contract and stop the slide show.

    Have fun! If you haven't jumped on board yet, it's never too late to become a lifelong learner. Thank you for joining us on this journey of discovery and fun.

    Next Up: Creating your blog so you can begin tracking your journey.

Thank YOU (the committee) for giving us this opportunity!! I didn't quite know what 2.0 was and now it is all so clear.
