• Define lifelong learning
• Tell the benefits of lifelong learning
• State the learning methods used in lifelong learning
• Demonstrate the techniques that will help you be a lifelong learner.
• The concept Lifelong Learning was introduced in Denmark as early as in 1971.
• In the 1990s- was promoted so individuals could cope with a rapid changing society. It was also
considered as individual- oriented.
• The term “life-long learners” was created by Leslie Watkins and it was used by Professor Clint Taylor
(CSULA) a Superintendent for the Temple City Unified School District’s mission statement in 1993,
the term recognizes that learning is not confined to childhood or the classroom but takes place
throughout life and in a range of situations.
• During the last fifty years, scientist and technology have had a profound effect on learning needs and
styles. Learning can no longer be divided into a place and time to acquire knowledge(school) and a
place and time to apply the knowledge acquired (workplace).
• Instead learning can be seen in our daily basis from our interactions with others. It can take the form
of formal learning or informal learning/self-directed learning.
• Is not limited to formal school education.
• It starts from the moment we are born and
ends in our death.
• Formal learning- Is well planned and has a
structure, it is used in classes, seminars,
• Informal learning- the daily work an individual
does or any self-taught material.
• Non-formal learning- is structured and related
indirectly to formal education
• Improves the mind.
• Helps with the individuals self-esteem.
• Creates opportunities for a better job.
• When you get older you will keep up with a
constant changing world.
• Helps you be aware about things in life.
• Creates a hunger for more knowledge.
How to create a lifelong
• Create a to learn list about things you are interested and
you want to learn about.
• Spend time with individual who are more intellectual.
• Use the correct time to learn or practice a new skill.
• Make lifelong learning a priority in your life.
• Try to carry a book every where you go.
• I conclude that more learning should be done at home and every
where you go cause knowledge will help us solve problems in life and
will add value to it. We should keep educating ourselves every day
cause wise people in this world never stop learning and we as
teachers are supposed to create this habit.
