Using Lifelong Learning To Get and Stay Smart
Career Development Technology is helping people learn on their own schedules using the Internet, smartphones and tablets.
As a child, you learned to spell, read and write. Then you likely attended school through high school and maybe college or higher education. But your quest for new information doesn’t have to end when you graduate.
“Learning doesn’t stop,” says Judy Verses, President Global Institutions at Rosetta Stone, Inc., noting “brain fitness” is a lifelong commitment “from K to gray.”
In the past, you had to go to a brick and mortar school to take classes to broaden your education. But nowadays you can learn in many different ways, such as taking online classes orstudying on your smartphone or tablet.
“With technology today, you can learn whatever you want, whenever you want throughout your life.”
Whether you’re juggling family obligations, a busy work schedule, a lengthy commute or any other schedule challenge, you can still find time to learn new things.
Innovative education technology, such as language software, can help you acquire knowledge on your own schedule.
“With technology today, you can learn whatever you want, whenever you want throughout your life,” says Verses, who explains Rosetta Stone language students include students, government workers and customer service workers at retailers and private companies.
From classwork to personal growth, learning should be engaging and fun. Studying a new language for example can help you communicate in a foreign country while on vacation or land a job. “There are so many ways to use language technology,” says Verses. “It has the opportunity to change people’s lives.” Lifelong learning can stimulate your brain and keep you engaged and competitive.
