Today’s 5 more ways to start learning how to code right now for free article by TNW, caught my eye. The article mentioned P2PU, which reminded me I had seen P2PU mentioned elsewhere, before.
I decided it was time for me to see what P2PU is all about.
So, What is P2PU?
The Peer 2 Peer University is a grassroots open education project that organizes learning outside of institutional walls and gives learners recognition for their achievements. – P2PU
It is no secret I am not an avid supporter of the traditional education model. No, that is putting it lightly. I hate the traditional education model. Any institution which is so biased towards and controlled by a single political system, should be cut off and closed down. Education should not be about brainwashing people towards a political vote and charging them for it; which pretty much sums up the entire U.S. Educational System.
P2PU is a good step towards how I think education should be handled, around the world.
Don’t get me wrong, my disdain for the U.S. Education System does not mean I do not want or like to learn. In fact, I love to learn and I’m always trying to learn more. So, if P2PU is more closely aligned with the way I believe education should be, why not give it a try?
Well, this is me trying out P2PU. This post represents the required post for P2PU: Webmaking 101.
I suppose many may think this is a waste of time, as I started writing HTML in high school and it wasn’t too long after, when I started using CSS to style my HTML. However, I still learn new things about these two languages, all the time. I also find that going back to the basics is a good way to refresh myself on tags, ideas or techniques I haven’t used in a while.
My goal is to see what P2PU is all about and if I can accomplish that goal and learn a few things while I’m at it… Great!
