First, one of the authors was an economist who we contacted during the process of research for our econ documentary. The text discussed the effectiveness of low and mid cost peruvian universities and argued about the stagnated demand for graduates in the professional field. I could relate it widely to Naked Economics, a book I read last year in the IA. Moreover, I could give my opinion on human capital when the text mentioned different ways to invest in yourself. Finally, I am discovering patterns in the philosophies of education and learning I am following and those of the soccer managers I admire.
All of this leads to a higher intrinsic motivation while learning. I've always approached learning topics from the IA with high interest because I knew they were relevant to life and my growth--I found value in them. Now, this has gone a step further. With new experiences, I am putting into practice new skills I had developed before, by having them integrated into real life projects. By doing those, I was able to learn them deeply, and now, after a long time lapse, I still have those lessons in my mind, helping me when I need them to perform better. Not only I feel the learning is relevant, but I now have proofs of how everything ties back into previous learnings. The problem is that when you don't experience this, there is no way to notice. Imagine I learn about something, and after two years I face the topic again, if I don't remember I wouldn't even have a clue that it could have been reliable. At this point, the importance of deep learning experiences and spaced repetition of learning arises. By doing both of these, you'll be able to feel the value of previous learnings and having interdisciplinary subjects.
Sincerely, now that I am starting to experience experiential value in previous learning experiences, by actually using them for my own benefit in real life situations, I feel prouder about the way I am learning and how it will actually be remarkable for a long period of time.
