What We Need to Know About Online College Learning this Fall
My perspective researching the chaotic 2020 distance education switch I went through
In 2020, there isn’t one institution that hasn’t fallen back on online classes to deliver a distance education to their students. What many parents and teachers alike don’t know is that online classes have a learning curve just like any other school subject. The limited research into online learning shows that schools must be attentive with targeting certain demographics, who may fall behind due to age, inexperience, and lack of access to technology.
I guarantee that you’ll finally get started after reading this.
I am obsessed with learning about how young people should treat their wayward years. Because of course, when you are my age and indecisive, suddenly everyone is an expert on what you should do with your life.
So I read books like The Defining Decade and Kids These Days for young adults, books for people of any age like Range and Dark Horse, kept a stronghold of quotes from TED Talks, and even took developmental psychology courses.
Up close, things don’t make sense. From an objective lens, studying the defining…
Although the 5 stages of grief has been disproved by psychologists, I’m pretty sure these quarantine feelings are #accurate

Ifirst got hooked onto skateboarding in 2005 when I received a Lego skate park set for Christmas. I wondered as I was building it: huh, could I like, skateboard in real life?
When my brother received a skateboard as a gift, I repossessed it and learned how to (goofy-foot) skate the bends around my pool.
Coming from a sheltered household in the suburbs, I could only wish I had spent my childhood years as a full-out skate rat at the local park. Instead, I followed skate culture via YouTube and newspapers. Skateboarding is also a huge part of Southern Californian…
Our younger and more rapid prototype will be surpassing us in numbers by next year. So if I can’t beat them, I might just have to know why
I’m a Millennial, and I’m scared of Generation Z like the Baby Boomers are scared of us.
They’re looking at an average of 5 screens at a time while we’re using the 2 screens that you complained about. We killed the fabric softener industry — but they’re the ones creating whole new jobs from social media that will completely change the economy. …
