Yesterday Imogen was peering over Charlotte’s shoulder, looking at all the interesting things she is learning.
“You are giving yourself a much better education than the one I gave myself,” Imogen complained. “Look at all those wonderful books you’re reading. I haven’t read any of them.”
“Well, it’s not too late,” replied Charlotte. “Your education isn’t over even though you’re doing uni work rather than homeschooling. You could read these books too.”
Then she added, “Education doesn’t have a use-by-date, you know. You keep learning all your life.”
Education doesn’t have a use-by-date? My official education finished years ago but yes, I am still learning. I learn new things all the time.
So what have I learnt recently?
I can now use my new Motorola Xoom tablet. That took a bit of trial and error and a demonstration by Andy. Nothing comes with paper instructions any more!
I have read about treadmill running compared to outdoor running. I now know how to adjust the settings of the treadmill so my indoor run more closely resembles my trail run. I can convert beats per minute to kms per hour so I can now choose suitable music for the pace I want to run.
I am learning how to sketch…. slowly. I’m doing an online class.
I am always learning more about writing…I have a dozen or more writing and editing books on my Kindle, which I dip into regularly.
I’d like to learn how to use my Kodak pocket video camera properly. Then I will work out how to put videos on my blog.
I’m going to do the Doodle Delight online class.
There are just so many interesting things I’d like to know more about!
So what have you been learning? Please share!
