YOUR LIFE, YOUR LEARNING, YOUR WAY!
Experiential Learning, ELO, or what ever you call learning on your own, it is key to success in our time. Becoming a lifelong learner can make you 'A.I Proof' (Joseph E. Aoun, 2017). That means learning through all that we do. If you are travelling, on the job, in the woods, or keeping up with studies while participating in competitive sports or independent projects, learn how to get credit.
Martel Learning Group has built and lead families, businesses, schools, and educators through the concept of learning by experience. Have us help you bridge the gap between out of book learning and tracking credits.
Before, during and after, get the most out of an experience, an interest, or an opportunity.
