The case for lifelong learning

... as if there needs to be one

Lifelong learning has been a regular part of my vocabulary for a long time. In reality, it starts from the time we enter the world, evolving as we grow. From learning how to feed ourselves, to how to read, to how to drive ... well, you get the picture. What are you doing to learn now?

Think again. While our kids, grandkids, nieces, nephews, etc., are all abuzz about this thing called social media, you might be thinking, “it’s not for me, I’m too old for that,” or “I don’t need that.” Recent research on the use of social media from the University of Arizona provides a very good reason to think otherwise, and in fact, encourages embracing social media as part of your life. Why?

Who’s Craig and why does he have a list?

Learning never stops, no matter how old we get. What you choose to learn depends on where you are at in your life, what needs or interests you might have. Finding good programs to help you learn more about them becomes first and foremost for a lifelong learner. Technology, humanities, art, history, you name it … people at OASIS centers across the country know just how important this is. So what’s the big deal about a class with a funny name?
