Interesting “break-through” tonight as I worked my way through Nick Brazzi’s LinkedIn Learning Course “MacOS Big Sur Essential Training.” I discovered a way to overcome an obstacle that was  interfering with my ability to master my WordPress blogging software.  Now It’s time to rechannel my Zeigarnik tension to complete or delete those 154 drafts of wordPress blogs started across the last decade!

For the last year I’ve been exploring the utility of using DuoLingo to build upon the foundation of my two years of Spanish at Howland High School and my Spanish major equivalence studied at Oberlin College. I found Jane Hart’s Guide to DuoLingo to be valuable in assisting my mastery of Duolingo.

Throughout my four decades of teaching I tried to build bridges across the Kindergarten to Higher Education divide, among different global communities and  between academic and corporate cultures.   I  participated twice in workshop created by The United Kingdom’s Jane Hart. The foundation of these workshops, “Promoting Continuous Learning in the Workplace, is her updated The Modern Workplace Learning online resource.  I may revisit this valuable learning resource.

How refreshing it has been to interact with the author (whom I have admired and corresponded with for over 10 years) and to develop learning relationships with individuals across the world. Based on things I’ve learned and reflected since my last workshop with Jane, I have “connected” with workshop participants on LinkedIn, incorporated some of the exchanged ideas into my interactions with my student research teams, and learned continuously

Other learning resources I am drawing upon this year are the following:

  1. Udemy
  2. The Great Courses
  3. Screencastsonline
  4. Dan’s Tutorials
  5. MacU
  6. WordPress courses
  7. MacSparky
  8. LinkedIn Learning
  9. YouTube
  10. Jane Hart’s Top Tools for Learning.

So much to learn. So little time.

What learning resources do you use to learn continuously?
