Alternative Education Resources
There are lots of different ways to learn.
Education doesn't need to be the same for everyone -in fact it is better if it is not the same for everyone; for two good reasons:
- Everyone learns differently -Different people are more effective learning different ways; for example: some people have a natural tendency to process information and they will learn better when processing information; but other learn better by gathering information; and their learning capacity will decline when they are forced to be processing.
- Different courses taught in different ways will produce people with different mixes of skills and knowledge. The world thrives on diversity; and a more diverse education system produces greater capacity for innovation and growth
Getting Outside Mainstream Education can be a Good Thing!
If you study different things in a different way; you will become different; and that can give you a real advantage in today's world.
ACS Distance Education has been developing different courses for decades based on experiential learning. These are outside the mainstream.
