The Impact of Education in 8 Movements

March 14, 2012, by

Education is a valuable characteristic in all of our lives, and it travels in different ways. In this course, I was able to think critically about my future applications in college and further using education as a personal development experience.

We featured these 8 categories to break down the concepts that follow education:

Enrichment
Do It Yourself (DIY)
College/University
Experiential
Online
Vocational
Military
Religious

I developed this video as a feature presentation to summarize the thoughts and experiences gained from my Education in 8 Movements course.




ED8: Enrichment Education

February 21, 2012, by

Our ‘Education in 8 Movements’ (Integrated English-History) class studied “Enrichment” as a post-secondary learning option. We examined how motivation and executive functioning skills contribute to effective habits of mind. Below are a few of my thoughts on our subject of inquiry.

While studying different ways of learning, I learned that I was a linguistic learner. I have known this for quite some time but now I can label it because of the quiz our class took on edutopia.org. Linguistic learner thrive through conversation and discussion. I love being able to talk through a project or concept because it helps me get a firm grasp on the idea. I never find myself at a loss for words.

During this Unit on Enrichment, I read some of Christopher Hitchens’ Letters to a Young Contrarian and composed my own argument/motto for learning and living intelligently: “Passion is hard work that feels easy”

 

My classmates and I studied Sir Ken Robinson’s The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything. In striving to live a passionate and purposeful life, I’ve reflected on some things that I love to do, and things that I’m really good at. Here’s a recording of me talking about one of things I love to do:

Of course, I also love to read. Here’s a recording of me reading from one of my favorite books: “Me Talk Pretty One Day” by David Sedaris.

While studying how we learn, our class took an edutopia.org survey that revealed I’m primarily a (choose one: kinesthetic/visual/linguistic) learner. I’ve enjoyed learning in this manner.


During this Unit on Enrichment, I read some of Christopher Hitchens’ Letters to a Young Contrarian and composed my own argument/motto for learning and living intelligently: “Insert motto here.” “Don’t let life pass you by, or your talents will cause your downfall.”

Of course, I also love to read. Here’s a recording of me reading from one of my favorite books: “Godel, Escher, Bach”, by Douglas Hofstader.

Enrichment for Life

February 7, 2012, by

While studying how we learn, our class took an edutopia.org survey that revealed I’m primarily a linguistic learner. I read that linguistic learners learn through language and can express their selves through writing such as poetry. I think this style of learning really expresses the way I learn. I love creative writing and trying to express my opinions and ideas during writing. I also have a great memory and love using references of books I’ve read and people’s writing I’ve read. I enjoy word puzzles, tongue twisters and learning new languages. I love to read for fun when I can find the time. I’ve enjoyed learning in this manner.

During this Unit on Enrichment, I read some of Christopher Hitchens’ Letters to a Young Contrarian and composed my own argument/motto for learning and living intelligently: “The hunger and motivation to do better and be better is why I yearn to learn and strive to work harder.”

My classmates and I studied Sir Ken Robinson’s The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything. In striving to live a passionate and purposeful life, I’ve reflected on some things that I love to do, and things that I’m really good at.Here’s a recording of me talking about one of things I love to do:

Our ‘Education in 8 Movements’ (Integrated English-History) class studied “Enrichment” as a post-secondary learning option. We examined how motivation and executive functioning skills contribute to effective habits of mind. Below are a few of my thoughts on our subject of inquiry. While studying how we learn, our class took an edutopia.org survey that revealed I’m primarily a intrapersonal learner. I’ve enjoyed learning in this manner.



During this Unit on Enrichment, I read some of Christopher Hitchens’ Letters to a Young Contrarian and composed my own argument/motto for learning and living intelligently: “Always find a way to do or make something that can be useful to someone other than myself.”

My classmates and I studied Sir Ken Robinson’s The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything. In striving to live a passionate and purposeful life, I’ve reflected on some things that I love to do, and things that I’m really good at.



Of course, I also love to read. Here’s a recording of me reading from one of my favorite books: Seth Speaks by Jane Roberts
