Take a chance, and start your new life today. This being said it isn’t without hard work, and it isn’t some end all be all. The opportunities you face on this new world we call the internet can often overwhelm even the greatest. What I hope to create is a platform of change, built with the purpose of bringing #innovators together to #MAKEACHANGE.
The PolyInnovator Community
This is where the Polyinnovator Social Network comes in.
The community functions of this website act as a gateway to like-minded individuals who are here either for learning, or for innovative ideas. Either way the growth mindset is greatly apparent. This leverages the creativity of innovation, and the inspiration of learning. Combining both creative inspiration for a prosperous community.
I challenge you today to go on the Groups tab, find a circle of people who may resonate with you. Then in that circle leave a message stating why you joined that group, and see what happens!
The Learning Courses
I would honestly say that probably even more important than the social aspects, are the learning portions. The courses on PolyInnovator are based around Self-Education, as well as Innovation skills. Both being separate tools of life, but both highly valuable. Surprisingly pretty much nowhere can you find reliable learning materials on each.
Lets start by explaining the initial round of courses shall we:
Build Your Own Modular Degree Mini Course:
This intro course is meant to be a guide on getting started with your own Self-Education pathway, in other words YOUR OWN Modular Degree. Not unlike the one I talk about on the YouTube channel.
This would include the basics of setting up a project management tool like Google sheets, or in my case Airtable for organizing the degree.
As well as the foundations of how you should set up the outline of the degree, such as the semesters. The keys are repetition, interleaving, and competency.
Innovation Introductory Course:
Given that this is a platform for #Innovators, it only seems fitting that there should education for their minds as well. Perhaps one day this will be the #1 place for innovation ideologies.
The course gives a run down of how innovation occurs in businesses, education, your own life, and in general. Of course there are deeper details to get into when in comes to those subjects, however I think it’s prudent that we take a high-level view of what can be changed.
The main concept is explaining how it occurs, giving some simple mental models to adopt, as well as give a look at what is to come in later courses.
Creating Your Semesters (Modular Degree):
Not only is the Modular Degree something you curate on your own, but it is a lifelong journey. One should never stop learning lest you want your brain to suffer!
The challenge is not trying to cram it all in at once, or delay until the end. You need a solid mix of hard and easy, helpful or just interesting, career oriented or happiness inducing. The latter could be one in the same if done right.
The semesters are a powerful way of visualizing the overarching plan of your education. Especially if you need some concepts to stick strong, then you would need to spread them over multiple terms.
This gives your brain a chance to cement the knowledge, and understanding how to do that efficiently is what we go over in the course.
Changing Your Life
All in all these tools are meant to give you that head start in life, and perhaps an extra edge over your competitors. Even more so maybe it will give you a chance to turn those so called competitors into allies.
The courses here are going to give you the opportunity to say no to college, or skip ahead of the curve; Either way the dynamic of learning should be truly understood. It is my mission to empower that understanding!
