"Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn."
I have always been told that to teach, you must be a student yourself! Intelligence is not enough when facilitating learning. The operative word being "facilitate" which means...I am not the only one talking and my student is involved; an exchange takes place between me and the one(s) being taught and a learning environment is created for all.
To prepare to teach or facilitate a learning session, requires preparation. My preparation includes making available to myself great resources (online or from my bookshelf) that have valuable and relevant content conducive for learning . One of my web sources is Lynda.com (gives me a library of over 1,800 video tutorials to learn software, business, and enhance my creative skills). Since I use Microsoft Office, I will sign into Microsoft Office 365 online for resources. Other online resources include my local library, Internet blogs on the subject matter content, and Adobe for Photo Shop, InDesign, and DreamWeaver. I also include YouTube, Wikipedia, Google search, and Slide Share (online community that shares knowledge through presentations, infographics, documents and more).
There is no end to the amount of information available to me on the Internet to help me do what I love to do! Teach! Sometimes, too much information is "too much!" So I limit the number of resources to 7-10 reliable resources online and in print to have a well-rounded approach.
