Self Made Scholar
Self Made Scholar is a great site I found to help me to improve my cultural awareness and my career.
From their site:
The goal of SelfMadeScholar.com is to connect people to the resources they need to learn.
Anyone who is interested in learning (be it academic learning or technical learning) is welcome to join our community. Business professionals, students, seniors, stay-at-home-moms, homeschoolers, unschoolers, and autodidacts of all kinds are invited.
What is your philosophy?
At SelfMadeScholar.com, we believe:
People are capable of learning outside of the rigid confines of traditional schooling.
Academic learning is neither more nor less valuable than technical learning. Being able to analyze Joyce isn’t inherently superior to being able to build a house.
Although diplomas and certificates can help you get a good job, they don’t prove much. People should be judged by their knowledge and abilities, not by a piece of paper.
Mandatory schooling is immoral because it strips human beings of free choice.
Facilitators are needed to help connect willing learners to the ever-increasing amount of learning material now available.
