Learning Skills

Multiplying Large Numbers in Seconds

This is a trick I did not discover until my college years and I believe that it is something that students of all ages who understand the material should be working on until it becomes a mastered skill. I decided to re-create it for my tech task #3.

New Language

Want to begin to learn a language? I will be providing tools to help you learn these languages on your own, while contributing to the vast knowledge available on the web! The first tool I will provide is duolingo. Duolingo is a free, popular tool that many people are using to learn languages.

The service works by giving the user words and sentences to be translated that are dependent on the skill and knowledge level that the reader presents. Learn any language you want at your own pace, and translate sentences for the entire world to read at the same time! 

The next service is Lang-8. This website pairs you with an individual who wants to learn your own native language, while you learn theirs. You choose which language you want to learn and your skill level, and you are paired up with someone from across the world who meets these demands! It is a great way to find a native speaker to practice with and has helped thousands master other languages! And as usual, this service is free! 

The next website is called Memrise. Memrise has actual courses with many different languages, but it’s not only limited to the language area! This website has courses on history, science, the arts, and much more!

Computer Coding

On top of work, class, and my social life, I am also considering taking a FREE online class from Harvard University on an introduction to Computer Science. This is a fantastic opportunity for everyone to learn a valuable tool for the present and the future for free!

 

Another useful resource to learn computer coding is Codeacademy. This gives you a foundation on how to learn computer coding and then slowly progresses upwards in skill level!
