Skillshare begins the new way to learning

 

Few months ago I was searching for some illustrator tutorial on internet, when I found the Skillshare website, where professionals were being teachers and developing a great learning community for people who are interested to learn and evolve their creativity beyond any circumstances.

skillshare

Picture from the Skillshare Blog where the author Nicole Kamra talks about what new instructors could do to create their first video class.

We can find on youtube a lot of people putting their classes or sort of tutorials online, which it is a way for learning, but also a very traditional way, and sometimes with this tutorials you end up don’t having the same support that you would have from a teacher in a classroom.  With skillshare, in most of their classes, the student is working in a project as going through the classes, and can send e-mails, post it their work, change experience and doubts with the community.

“Skillshare is a learning community for creators”

Skillshare was funded in New York city, in 2011, by 11 people whom come up with a idea to create a more interactive method of education, there is more than 1 million students subscribed and almost 3.000 classes available.

To sign up and join the community the students would have three options, they can just sign up and watch some certain classes for free, or they have the chance to pay for one year or one month of unlimited classes to watch.

The professionals and artists who are sharing their skills can make money too, because each class that the artists or professionals are getting new subscribers they are getting a percentage of the subscription fee, what gives them a incentive to create more videos.

The website is full of videos, showing how the community work, and everything that you can do joying this community.

In the future, I see many people sharing their creativity, learning a new profession and helping other people find their own creativity and talent, and Skillshare is the beginning of it.

Canada is lowering their vote age for 16 years old.

This thursday Don Davies, the NDP member for Vancouver Kingsway, brought to House of Commons a private member’s bill to aprove to lower the age voting to 16 years old.

As a lot of young Canadians are already working and paying taxes, Davis think that they should have the right to vote.

Nancy Deol, a student, 21 years old, from White rock has a optimistic opinion about bringing the young people out to vote, she said:

“You can’t say whether or not if 16 years old are mature enough to vote, I think the whole idea of letting younger people vote is to do with their future and what they are bringing out”

Nancy also pointed that giving the opportunity to vote will make young people more interested about politics.

Taylor Dergousoff, a BCIT student, think the respond of young people about politics would be mixed, some people would be interest and some people would take as a joke, Tyler thinks that most of young people would be

“I fell like their role models, their parents, their older family members would influence their decision”

In other hand Petrina de Souza, 28 years old, a journalism student at BCIT said “if they consider youngsters to vote, they will understand that the youth are the future, so they would know what they want and maybe based in that, they can work in more a
progressive country.”

The last election was prove that the young people are getting more into politics, and have more conscience how important politics is for their future.
