As the cost of education continues to rise and the efficiency of our current learning models in question, we are seeing a growing number of alternative solutions to the more traditional forms of education. This is part of the Education 2.0 revolution that we are watching develop everyday.
The following is a preliminary list of Education 2.0 resources available to everyone online. This is only a small segment of such resources, but I hope to expand this in the coming years. Check them out below!
These platforms are the most comprehensive education efforts to date, which are not only delivering information, but integrating learning opportunities through exercises and applied learning.
Although not as engaging as virtual classrooms, these organizations provide a wealth of high quality lectures ranging from thought leaders to the most prestigious of institutions.
You can find anything on the internet and these are typically the first places to look when you want to know how to do or learn anything you could think of.
Probably the most engaged community in the future of education is that of hackers and technologists that are fully willing to embrace this change. Here you’ll find resources catered to these early adopters.
Learning languages online is also a growing trend, as several platforms have tailored the key foundations required for language mastery in an online environment.
Technology is not only revolutionizing the education system, but also supplementing it and these are some great resources for teachers and classrooms.
I fully believe that games are the next step for education and that this particular area of the education revolution will be the most exciting in years to come.
Keep a look out as I’ll be continually updating this list to add more and more resources that are part of the education revolution.
