How to learn best in an online environment
Learning can be a challenge for many people who feel powerless when they are in a physical classroom and in a virtual classroom trying to learn something. Study and practice can feel like an uphill, overwhelming, task.
Meet Jason Barron. He had two problems:
- How to be a successful adult student
- How to pay off the student debt he would occur while getting his MBA?
After a few classes and sketches he created a Kickstarter campaign requesting $7,000 to cover the editing and printing costs. 2,300 backers to pledge more than $73,500 to the campaign.
The visual MBA story is really about how Barron was able to elaborate the material in a meaningful way so that he could achieve his learning goals. We can do the same, if we learn how to frame our educational experiences.
How did to Barron frame his education experiences?
Learning Frames is a simple yet powerful cognitive alignment model that helps you create effective learning experiences. Based upon proven neuroscience and instructional design principles a learning framework will:
- Give you a sustainable mindset for learning
- Give you the tools and methods to overcome learning bias and increase your ability to learn
- Give you a framework that empowers you to increase your potential through acquiring knowledge, skills, and increasing your learning potential
- Create a Learning Goal
- Define the Reason for learning
- Analyze your ability to learn and your baseline knowledge
- Make a plan or Stratedgy to achieve your learning goal
- Be accountable for what you know and evaluate what you still need to learn to achieve your learning goal
Many create these frames organically, but now you can have a system to apply a learning frame to any experience.
