Formal Education…Self Education…What’s the Difference?

In line with what I was discussing yesterday, I read this great article and wanted to share it with you.

Jamie Martin, editor of Simple Homeschool wrote Design Your Own Master’s and this particular bit jumped off the page and bit me on the nose…

Then I realized something amazing–I don’t really want a master’s.

I just want to learn.

I read that and it hit me like a rock. How did she know the song of my heart so well? I just wanted to cry with relief. Yes, someone else gets it, they really do. I’m not the only one out there!

Better yet, she gave this AMAZING link to 12 Dozen Places to Educate Yourself. Yeah, that’s not a typo, that’s a dozen dozen, folks, the big 1-4-4.

And as I slowly teach myself Spanish at the age of (nearly) 42, I’m jazzed to see several websites on the list devoted to that. Not to mention the vast preponderance of other sites that will keep not just Emily, but all of us, entertained and interested in the years to come.

Ooh…NOVA videos online…and…OpenLearn…wow…

I’m sorry, I have to go now. I’ve got a lot of bookmarking to do!
