The age of technology is changing how we engage, learn and create everyday. The need for knowledge is never ending and humans crave to evolve, prosper and progress. Unless someone is in the middle of the woods completely off-grid (something we highly recommend from time-to-time) the mind is surrounded with information that can only be processed if focused and engaged. Although passive learning does occur, the retention of it is minimal and quickly becomes fuzzy. As a result, the desire to absorb quality content increases along with the need to connect with others positively.
Historically, learning took place in homes, local school buildings and in local communities. There are still parts of the world where students travel for miles on foot and in dangerous circumstances to learn and better themselves.
Thank you www.therichest.com for sharing this eye opening video about the dangers of traveling to get an education!
Learning does not have to be a death defying adventure! Yes, it will take time to complete the infrastructure to have e-learning all over the world but such a goal is being tackled everyday by community initiatives and corporate sponsors who strive to have technology reach all the corners of the world. All motivated with good and bad intentions.
As technology lands in laps, there are 2 choices: be overwhelmed and easily consumed... let technology control the influence it has with advertisements and entertainment or become empowered by possibility and control the tech for personal betterment and social positive progress.
When in control of the possibilities that technology offers, learning can be taken to a whole new evolutionary level. No more with long journeys, costly tuition bills and the need to devote thousands of hours and dollars on topics that only meet general education credits. The ability to focus on niche fields of study that suit passionate goals and missions is now at fingertips. The value of standard degrees seem to have fallen to asterisks at the end of a resume after a complete review of content profiles and professional highlighted accomplishments achieved with experience. The debt associated with becoming a full-time student is a mark of shame on credit reports and "hey, can't we just google it or ask siri anyway!"
But really, education is still at the forefront of personal progress and merely relying on whoever can pay the most to show up on the top search feeds is not necessarily the best way to get information. As a result, professional backgrounds, degrees, content sources and who authors collaborate with is important. Merely giving away tons of information and intellectual property in an effort to prove merit and scholarship is not as financially beneficial. When brains are processes and retaining information it is quality over quantity that sooths the learning pallet.
The mission of Collaborative Creators is to improve e-learning, increase profitability for mentors, tutors and coaches, as well as, revolutionize the ability of scholars to navigate and utilize the platforms and technological advancements that are available to scholars, information leaders and learners.
This is just the beginning of a journey that encourages the production of quality self-published content that gains monetization by collaborating with e-learning giants. Work with us to change how society educates and start building your community of virtual learners.
A video, rhythm and heartfelt lyrics brings this concept to life more than any words in written post. Thank you Prince Ea for sharing this inspirational case against how society treats education. With love and passion we can change our world!
