Discussing the Challenges of a DIY Education
Recently, I talked with Anya Kamenetz via Skype about her new ebook, The Edupunks’ Guide to a DIY Credential. The book is free and offers strategies, resources, and networks that help readers achieve personalized educational goals from creating a learning plan to earning a doctorate.
Reading the book, I found it could be a useful resource to help students as they prepare for the transition beyond high school and into higher education. At the same time, Anya’s book acts as a useful blueprint for educators to think about how digital technologies are shifting the ways traditional credentialing, degree programs, and post-secondary learning take place.
