Can you enrich yourself while making breakfast, folding laundry or walking your dog? Yes, with a phone, tablet or computer! September 15 is National Online Learning Day. Who knew that this thing we're all doing -- at all ages, at all times of the day and night, on laptops across the globe -- had it's own commemorative day? While it has it's frustrations and limitations (just ask my high school daughter!), online learning has been a real lifeline to millions, and something that is here to stay.
Michelle reminds us weekly of the importance of movement and exercise for our physical health. Learning is exercise for our minds. What's more, it empowers and enriches us. Consider the term "enrichment." It encompasses more than just improving quality or value; to enrich also means to make someone wealthier. It's sometimes hard to look at Covid's silver linings, but expansive online learning is definitely one of them. This week, let's celebrate National Online Learning Day, with gratitude for the tools and resources that allow us to continue growing.
