As I was interviewing these two, I said to myself, "OMG The Best Adult Learning EVER!"
First a little about these two amazing ladies: Ellen Ervin and Lynne Beachner
As the former Director of WeMet Distance Learning Consortium, Ellen has worked in all aspects of technology. Her passion is distance learning because she sees the power in helping organizations and people make connections around the world.
Lynne has worked in education throughout her career in grades K-16 as a teacher/professor, a coordinator of instruction, a principal and an executive director. She loves the curriculum and instruction side to education because that is where you engage students and create lifelong learners. She received her Ph.D. from Kansas State University.
Together Ellen and Lynne believe that it is just a matter of time until the world opens up to individuals communicating on a daily basis with museums, archives, health centers, historical societies, community and other groups both locally and internationally in an effort to continue learning and cooperate in projects that will help others. They want to do their part in supporting the inevitable. The two of them formed the Senior Learning Network, providing interactive learning to senior centers and retirement communities. Additionally, they have also formed Generations Learning, providing lifelong learning to individuals within their homes.
