Do you confuse knowing with Learning ? Knowing is remembering, not learning. Say that over and over to yourself. We watch our dentist , this doesn't make us able to perform root canals. We read Scientific American, but it doesn't make us a scientist. As Einstein said, "Any fool can know. The point is to understand."
When we learn something new, we tend to assume that it creates a permanent imprint in our brains. This is simply not true. It's critical to be aware that when trying to learn something new, you might not remember it for very long - therefore, allowing for reflection and time to practice retrieval will be essential.
To support our continuous learning efforts, we need to understand what holds us back in the first place. Are we trying to shove our learning into a time frame that cannot support our efforts?
One reason individuals choose online learning is so that they can earn an education entirely online without travelling to a college campus or attending classes at fixed times
Many online education programs allow pupils to work at their own pace. Some students don't mind following the pace of a traditional course with the rest of the students. But, others become frustrated as they feel bored with slow-moving instruction or feel overwhelmed with material that they don't have time to understand. If working at your own pace is important to you, look no further, we offer flexible start and finish dates.
Our Online education programs are more affordable than in class room schools.
Online education allows professionals to continue their careers while working towards higher learning. Many career-oriented adults face a similar challenge: they need to keep their current position to stay relevant in the field. But, they need to further their education to go further. Online education can help solve both concerns.
Last year in 2018 at Clarion Drone Academy, we had over 17,114 hours of online student learning time.
Things to keep in mind as you plan your education for 2019
- Practice skills regularly -- even the skills we use consistently. There's always a better way.
- Carve out time to learn -- time that is sacred, time that is uninterrupted.
- Realize we aren't as smart as we think we are. Work your brain; don't just stuff it full of information that is untested.
