As the Edudemic Staff stated, “Doctors, lawyers, and other professionals never stop learning new techniques and strategies to hone their craft and remain on the cutting edge in their field- and so, too, do teachers,” (“Lifelong Learning is a Crucial Educational Mindset”). Recently, I challenged myself with continuing to have a lifelong learner mindset in order to continue to build a network with other likeminded educators.
After reading “Lifelong Learning is a Crucial Educational Mindset,” an article published by Edudemic, a few comments truly made me ponder:
- lifelong learning is an essential challenge for inventing the future of our societies
- a lifelong learning mindset creates the challenge to understand, explore, and support new essential dimensions of learning such as:
- self-directed learning
- learning on demand
- informal learning
- collaborative and organizational learning
- lifelong learning fosters creativity in the information age
- How do lifelong learners encourage other people that do not have a lifelong learner mindset to self-direct their learning?
- How can the world of education grow and become better if we do not all have a lifelong learner mindset?
- If you are at a school where the lifelong learner mindset is rare, how can one help the teachers to see the benefits that a lifelong learner mindset has on their career?
Who are lifelong learners?
- tech lovers (willing to allow students to learn and teach about tech usage)
