Check out this post on the Praxis blog, where I make the case that homeschoolers and self-directed learners already embody the learning style that is the future of hiring and professional development.
From the post:
“Classrooms don’t prepare young people for success in life and career. They’re slow, expensive, often boring, the incentives are all wrong, the setting is dull, customization is almost non-existent, and lack of real choice means peers and professors alike aren’t the most valuable people to add to your personal network.
Home educators and self-directed learners know this. They eschew the conveyor belt approach to education. They step out of the classroom and into the world. They understand that real learning is a lot more fun, varied, and valuable than chasing the same paper as everyone else.”
I share the three things that homeschooling an apprenticeships have in common:
- Interest vs. credentials
- Doing vs. memorizing
- Being around vs. reading about
