To Learn Lists

As unschoolers, learning things on our own is not a novel idea, but it does seem to be making the rounds on a few blogs. Last week PickTheBrain had a guest blogger, Scott Young, who wrote about How To Set Up Your Personal University. Scott wrote, “While regular university is expensive and stops when you get a degree, your personal university continues indefinitely and can be run for free.” Unschoolers have known this all along!

I have been reading Scott’s blog for a few months now and enjoying his perspective. Scott is a college student, writing about his thoughts and experiences as he navigates college, life and setting goals.  Many of the issues Scott mentions in his blog I see my own college student grappling with also.

Check out Scott’s Keeping To-Learn Lists post. I have often had lists in my head of things I would like to learn in the future, but never really wrote any of them down on paper. I do have a list of books that I want to read, but not things I want to learn to do. Maybe it is time to commit my list to paper. Here’s a start:

  • Play the banjo
  • Read and speak Italian
  • Sail a boat

Do you have a “To Learn” list of your own?
