Learn about the seven and a half habits of highly effective lifelong learners and write some goals.
The next stage of the program is… a bit of revision! Hurrah! I can see that you’re all thrilled.
Anyway, we’re going to spend a few minutes reviewing some of the habits that can assist in creating lifelong learners. These habits, 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. The following tutorial, created by Lori Reed of the Public Library of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County, is the basis for our tasks for this Thing.
To Complete Thing Two:
- Make sure you have either headphones or speakers attached to your computer, and that the sound is turned on.
- Open up the 7 & 1/2 Habits online tutorial and view it. If the pace of the voice is so slow that it stops you from learning, then just use the arrows to click through and read the slides. If left alone, it runs for about 15 minutes.
- As you watch and listen, write down which habit among the 7 & 1/2 that is easiest for you and which is hardest. You will use your personal blog (which you will set up next week) to post your thoughts about lifelong learning.
- Also write down what do you personally want to achieve with the 23 Things. What are your goals? What do you need in your ‘toolkit’ to achieve these? You’ll be asked to revisit these goals at the end of the 23 Things.
All done? Go on the Thing Three, the last thing for this week!
