How to Learn Almost Anything, Open MIT Online Class


Actually the name of the class is Learning Creative Learning and it’s offered by Mitch Resnick, the director of Lifelong Kindergarten group at the Media Lab. The ability to learn new ways to learn is more than a byproduct of a good education; it’s a basic survival skill in the 21st Century. What happens in the class?

You learn a whole lot about learning. And because learning (and learning about learning) is more fun with more people we’ll group you with other students, so you can share ideas, give each other feedback, and make new friends. Each week we’ll focus on a particular topic related to creative learning, such as “Interest-Based Learning” or “Powerful Ideas” or “Tinkering.”

It looks like all the infrastructure is based on Google+, hangouts, and tools like the Mechanical MOOC. Class starts February 11th; sign up on the Learning Creative Learning page.
