Education is at a critical juncture in its evolution
For thousands of years, the ways people learned barely changed, from classroom instruction to apprenticeships to books.
Since the turn of the century, however, we've seen an explosion in both the types of learning tools and the quantity. With Internet access becoming almost ubiquitous for much of the world, we are now able to create and learn from instructional material in a dizzying array of formats including YouTube channels, online courses, podcasts, mobile apps, Kindle ebooks, PlayStation games, and many more.
K-12 education is evolving rapidly
The massive increase in online and offline learning materials allows millions (even billions!) of people to access knowledge that used to be restricted by location or cost, and it is enables a generation of parents to supplement their kids' education in new ways, with some even diving into homeschooling when it wouldn't even have been an option just a few years ago.
Parents now have a multitude of options for teaching their youngsters at home or supplementing their schoolwork, and the problem is no longer how to find learning materials, but how to find the right learning materials. How do you sift through hundreds of books, videos, apps, and websites, all claiming to be the best way to learn Guitar, Calculus, Digital Photography, or Spanish?
How do you find learning resources that match your specific goals, level, and budget? Google can't do this kind of a search.
Learnamic lets you search thousands of learning materials across hundreds of sites and sort and filter by the exact topic, format, grade level, cost, and more, so you get the right resource for you.
Our goals are to:
1) Help you find learning materials you and your kids are most likely to enjoy, continue, and finish
2) Save you time and money by avoiding poorly-designed, dated, or incomplete learning materials
3) Provide a supportive environment that fosters lifetime learning
We believe these goals are worthwhile and eminently achievable. If you would like to help or just share thoughts or feedback, we’d love to hear from you! Please feel free to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Learning resources are carefully organized into narrow learning topics to help you learn exactly what you want, quickly and easily, without hunting all over the internet.
Who knows more about finding learning resources than homeschoolers? They love us!
