You’re about to learn what Skillshare is and why your family will fall in love with it.
It’s the best thing I did for my kids education and they now have a new love for learning.
In fact, if you try it out, you’ll probably ask why in the world are schools not doing this?
What is Skillshare?
Skillshare is a low-cost online learning platform and community designed to teach real-world skills. Subject matter experts and professionals can apply to teach their own courses to share the knowledge they’ve gained through real-world, on-the-job experience.
There are a wide variety of topics covered, which is what makes Skillshare such a valuable platform for families. Kids and parents, alike, can explore their own individual interests and learn from professionals who are utilizing these skills day in and day out.
Topics include graphic design, animation, photography, music production, writing, business and entrepreneurship, cooking, crafts and more. Learn how to start your own side business as a freelancer one week and then study photography the next. There’s no limit, because with your membership, you get access to all the courses.
Skillshare is for the Entire Family
Skillshare has something for the entire family.
Whether you want to dive deeper into your creative side, learn about business from the pros, or just improve your cooking skills, Skillshare really has something for everyone in the family (and it’s all housed under one roof with your single membership).
And if you know that you have a passion or area of expertise that you’d like to share with students around the world, you can even become a teacher yourself. Skillshare compensates its teachers as students enroll in classes and watch lessons.
Skillshare Helps You Standout In College Admissions
Whether your trying to standout in college admissions or your child’s first part-time job, Skillshare can help them standout.
On any resume as well as a LinkedIn profile, you’re asked to list special skills you’ve acquired. If your child has only taken basic classes throughout his or her school career, this area may be limited.
Skillshare, though, makes it easy for your child to rapidly accumulate additional, real-world skills, and in areas he or she is already interested. These additional skills will rapidly beef up a resume or LinkedIn profile. Especially as many allow you to acquire certifications when the course is complete. These additional skills and certifications will make your child look motivated and more appealing to potential employers and college admissions counselors alike.
Conclusion: Is Skillshare Worth It
The answer is a resounding “yes.”
For a low cost (plus a 2 month free trial), you can get access to a multitude of courses on a wide variety of topics, sure to appeal to every member of your family. Giving your children (and you) access to such an abundance of information, taught by real people, will help fuel their love of learning, since they’ll have the opportunity to explore their passions on a deeper level.
It will also help them acquire specialty skills that they can add to their resume and LinkedIn profile for potential employers and college admissions counselors to see. Not only will it beef up their qualifications, it will show how motivated they are to make learning a lifelong process. It will speak well to their dedication levels.
So without a doubt, Skillshare it worth it and I would highly suggest trying it out for yourself for two months for free. We think you’ll be amazed at what happens when your kids are able to focus on topics they’re passionate about.
