(NC) Was there ever anything you wanted to learn, but didn’t? Do you feel like it is too late to begin learning it? What barriers are stopping you?
For some of us, a barrier is simply knowing where to find good resources. The Internet is full of free information, and sometimes it can feel like there is too much out there. There is a lifetime’s worth of free education online and it can be difficult to figure out where to go, how to use it, and how to make it work for you. So, look for those created with the adult learner in mind.
For instance, if you’re looking to improve your financial literacy or money skills, the ABC Skills Hub online learning platform offers free, reputable courses on a wide spectrum of skills, such as money safety, ways to save, and banking basics. If you think you need to brush up on interpersonal skills, take a look at courses on communication, teamwork, or confidence. Or, maybe you can take a course on Snopes and Fake News if you’re concerned about trusting the news on television or social media.
Improving your literacy skills in any space takes a concerted effort, but with the right resources, it can be easy and accessible.
