Millennial Education: 7 Best Ways To Grab Success Key

Hello millennial, more and more of us will learn in the future from robots.

The science of learning in the millennial generation is really changing both the relics and stereotype of the past. This is not only told in the transforming nature of knowledge, it is equally attestable from how learning is taking place, nowadays.

Education is no more what it used to be.

In this guide post, I will show you steps on how to acquire modern knowledge through self-directed learning with simple hacks, and, perhaps, how to get mileage from doing so — with less rigour.

1. Expand your cognition.

From research, 66% of all adults, 16+, are functional on either one social networking site or another. While there’s a bandwagon of unwholesome users who abuse the opportunity, a score of others are making a big deal of it. For those with a sense of purpose, the social media has never ceased to be a fountain of knowledge.

You can start from facebook, the biggest social network with more than a billion users. Turn it a classroom by joining educational groups and start learning something new, daily. Personally, I love Medium for how its collections are arranged and well-tailored; the publications over there are always eye-openers.

2. Go new.

Want any change? Your mind is the starting point.

Nothing remarkable would’ve been attributed to the millennial generation suppose there were no technological innovations that set new trends. Here’s the fact: it will be hard to thrive in the digital age if your mind is old.

Go new!

3. It’s time for MOOC.

There’s no doubt whatsoever in the effectiveness of online education. In fact, the most amazing pride of e-learning is how it has become the newest bride of classic universities. To mention but a few, edX is an online learning platform owned by MIT and Harvard University. It’s one of the largest providers of MOOC that’s worth the trust. There are hundreds of similar platforms such as Coursera (the most popular provider of MOOC), Khan Academy and MIT Open Courseware.

More ostensibly, the digital age drops at individual disposals a rare opportunity to juggle more, acquiring relevant skills and becoming deservingly versatile. With Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), access to education has never been this easier.

4. Start writing.

Either you’re learning from the classroom or through the Internet, writing is one of the best ways to implement knowledge and grow more doing so. More so, it’s a swift medium to ascertain authority. Check around, writers are great influencers of all times.

In the learning context, students are encouraged to publish their views about any topic (take from International Relations or Medicine for instance) on social media. Doing this, they will engage and be engaged thus getting broader perspectives on the subject matter.

Beyond, this is a right track to unlock creative potential and attain unrestrained success.

5. Go blogging.

Now, you’ve established a writer personality. What an incredible way to learn more and make greater impacts. To this end, you’ll naturally have something to share with the little world around you. This explains why you should start blogging.

The statistics vary but there are approximately over 152 million blogs on the internet in which about 172,800 are created daily by an ocean of people who, for different purposes, make efforts to establish a voice in the noisy world. Does that mean anything to you?

Well, if you haven’t decided yet, this resources is not only about why you should, it is also about how to.

6. Widen the tentacle.

People say “keep the circle small” but there are actually many reasons why you should make it a little big.

Collaborate with others, in order to gain more ideas, knowledge, opportunities, or rather accelerate your career. Networking is key in the digital age.

7. Keep learning.

Learning is a continuum.

  • Bless the writer of this article for being such an eye opener. I am also an aspiring writer who love to make impact. New world, new ideas and new technology, all go together.

    But then, I think one of the most important concerns is how the wealth of technology and science, which has highly enriched the western life, has not fully influenced Africa. Why? This is something we all need to address by enlightening ourselves.

    Great piece!
