In the past I thought my own learning process was pretty haphazard, but everything I learn seems to inform and reinforce the next project or endeavor. For example, signing up for this course is the result of another course I'm taking.
As a result of the last election, I vowed to learn a lot more about American Government, so I signed up for the Harvardx Introduction to American Government. I was pretty freaked out when I realized we had 4 essays to write. I did my very best and hoped it was good enough. It was. The score was 90 for the first essay and 100 for the second. It gave me some hope that I could learn to write well, something that I realized I'd always wanted to do.
The question was, where does one even start? I have no further education after getting my GED and that was a long, long time ago. I went shopping on edx and found out about their Global Freshman Academy and signed up for English Composition 101. The platform itself is a learning process, one that was frustrating for a few days. Being exposed to 'educator-ese' is a steep learning curve, too.
I have no idea how to write, but re-reading the above, I think in a very short time that I'm learning to think.
