A to Z Challenge

A TO Z OF RESOURCE MANAGEMENT

My husband agrees with some of my blogger friends about the dangers of learning about one's medical condition via the Internet. I tease him about not being tech savvy  (although I am technologically challenged myself).  He says that even if he knew a lot about the internet he would still depend on doctors because Universities with medical schools are not easy to get into and that makes a doctor more knowledgeable than anyone who writes their experiences on the internet.

I argue that there is more to learning than just going to the university.  I believe that learning can be done anywhere and everywhere provided the sources for learning are available and we have the desire to learn. Also I tell him that while it is great to be able to get into a University we can be successful if we use our intelligence. He tells me not to use the example of Bill Gates because it is not an everyday example. I agree, but I also think that we as society should not push young people to go to a University if they cannot, because there are Unlimited resources out there if they use their time and energy to make a living and to see if they can use their talent and handy work in a positive way. Information about upcoming workshopsPhoto of OU BOCES campus (placeholder for Flash Slideshow)

In this day and age, there are many more ways to get a working education than just in a university, but it is still nice to have that little diploma that comes with it!

I agree that university is not always the way to go... I don't think people should go until they have a really good idea of what it is they want to do...

Just going to school to learn although commendable, isn't always possible :)

In today's society, a university degree, preferably an advanced one, is necessary!!

Unlimited is such a wise choice! Too often we limit ourselves in various ways.

I think it's adorable that you and your husband have these little discussions where each of you give your opinion!

Unlimited is a great word. We can educate ourselves with a click on the mouse and find out anything we want to know.

Technical schools are as important to education as Universities. We are going to be without plumbers, electricians, chefs, graphic artists, etc. when everyone goes to university.

Actually our Primary Care Physician invites us to research illness on the internet and bring her articles of interest. She does not believe that she knows it all. We like that about her.

I agree to a certain extent but I do believe that it's extremely difficult in this day and age to get a good career-type job without a degree of some sort. But then again I am biased since I work in a college :)

Guess you could call this Update regarding Unhatched. My Araucauna hens hide their eggs from me. They don't sit on them they just hide them. Guess that is why they are called Easter Egg Chickens. Not only are their eggs green, they make me go on an egg hunt:) Anyway, I found a cache today and have placed them with a few other eggs under June Hen. She accepted them with great excitement and scooped them safely under her wings. Mark your calendar for May 15th as we await another hatching. There are another 17 eggs and your guess will stand. I just hope June doesn't suddenly realize she's been at this too long and give up. xo Annie

I agree that we learn from many different sources, but my limited schooling has held me back from being in a position which I would enjoy. I did what I had to do in order to survive and this is what has led me back into the classrooms in my mid life years. I however don't agree that children should be forced to decide by as early as grade 7 what they want to do, I can't even imagine forcing a child to decide what they want to do for the rest of their life at such a young age.

There is so much one can learn via the internet, but as for medical issues I always consult with my doctor... better safe than sorry!

Have a great day!
