You’ve come to the point in your learning journey where you’re ready to begin sharing all the interesting information you’ve been learning about. Sharing is one of the most wonderful and beneficial parts of the journey, and can be done a lot of different ways. As a matter of fact, you may only be limited by your imagination!
Here are just a few of the many ways you can share what you’re learning with others:
Create a vlog or video channel. Share your thoughts and experiences with others via video. Instead of, or in addition to maintaining a blog, you can create a video journal about your learning adventure.
Create infographics. Infographics are a group of words and pictures or sometimes just pictures that offer information in a creative way. It’s a great way to share information quickly and easily, and it can often overcome language barriers.
Start or join a discussion group. If you’re really into what you’re learning, or just starting out, join or begin a discussion group on the topic. This group can be online, physical, or both. It’s a great way to share knowledge, brainstorm ideas, swap resources, network and get new leads and perspectives.
Start a publication. There are quite a few different types of publications you can start such as: a book or booklet, magazine, fact sheet, newsletter, comic, pamphlet, guide, etc.. Other people can benefit greatly from what you know, so get the information out there in some creative way!
Design a game based on the things you’ve learned. You may be able to market it for others interested in the topic when you’re done.
Write articles for a publication related to your topic. Many publications are looking for articles and stories about the topic you’re interested in. Consider contributing to them because what you know can help or be of interest to others.
Plan a program or class. Clubs, libraries, small museums, and schools are just a few of the places you can share what you know with others. Get in contact with the event planner, administrator, curator, Children’s Librarian, Friends of the Library event coordinator, or a teacher to find out how you can offer them a class or a program about your favorite topic. If you choose to do this, it’s a good idea to have a well formed plan ready to go, as they may not consider your request without one.
Sharing what you know with others can be a really exciting part of your learning journey and I highly recommend it. I personally do not think you are ever too young or old to share what you’re passionate about with others.
I hope you enjoyed and benefited from it in some way.
