Lifelong Learning and Learning 2.0

As educators, lifelong learning is one of those core values that we use to guide what we do each day. 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 some habits that can assist in creating lifelong learners.

This tutorial, which is 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.

Discovery Exercise:

  1. Open up the 7 and 1/2 Habits online tutorial and view the online tutorial. The tutorial was developed by the training specialists at the Public Library of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County (you do not need to email them as suggested at the end of this tutorial).
  2. As you read through the tutorial, write down which habit among the 7 and 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.

Have fun!
