OBJECTIVE 3: Develop Life Purpose

Virtual Learning

Developing a Life Purpose is completely different than teaching "marketable skills."

Life Purpose Careers are completely different than "getting a job".  

The primary difference is the final objective is well-being ...
for the individual, the community and the world simultaneously. 

Knowledge is Power

Self-Guided Learning

We believe in a self-guided, individualized learning system that helps each learner discover their strengths and their life purpose as opposed to the public education system that educates in groups.  Technology makes finding your niche possible in a way that a 30 to 1 student/teacher ratio could never do.  

In a self-guided, individualized learning system there is no such thing as grading.  Instead the goal is “mastery.”  There is no time limit or "end" to the education of anyone.  Each child or adult is allowed to excel and advance in the subjects that come easy and allowed to take all the time they need for subjects that are more challenging.

When a child or adult is allowed to learn at their own pace until they master the subject they are studying, we believe anyone can learn anything.  Thus a learning disability is not based on the apparent lack of ability of the individual, but the learning program's obvious lack of flexibility to adapt to the learning needs of each individual.  Group learning is part of a bygone system that is giving way to a more effective and equalizing individualized learning system.  

Rather than pushing a student into subjects they don't enjoy or desire, they can focus on the subjects that motivate them to push forward.  When the learner becomes bored, he or she can move to another subject.   In an individualized system, the strengths of each individual becomes clear.  These strengths can then be fully developed and fully utilized rather than spending precious development time on subjects that won't make a bit of difference to the learner, the community or the world.  

This learning system teaches each individual the power they have when the education they experience is designed to develop a “life purpose” focused on utilizing their strengths for the common good.  

DISCUSSION QUESTION:

 

How would a self-guided virtual learning program impact you and those you love?  Would it help in finding meaningful life purpose?
