Learning to Live Your Dreams:
The Power of Self-Directed Learning
 
 
Scientists seek answers. Artists create art. Business people serve unfulfilled needs. Inventors invent. Teachers develop innovative teaching approaches. Athletes pursue sports excellence. Educators inspire learning.
The purpose of education is to provide the skills, understanding and knowledge which will inspire others to take charge of their own learning in pursuit of their dreams. Some people seem naturally inspired to learn. Why? Because their learning is connected to their dreams.
Self-directed learning is personal. It uses an individual’s unique talents and abilities, is driven by their curiosities and passions and is guided by their personal dreams. Self-directed learning improves an individual’s self-talk as their connection to what they are doing; their competence to do it and their self-confidence grows.
What is your dream?
 What is your child's dream?
 
Become inspired to learn as you discover the power of self-directed learning. In this one-hour address, Larry Anderson shares the life stories of several incredible self-directed learners. Understand how self-directed learning can enable you to realize your personal dreams, and guide your children to reach theirs.
