Evaluate how personal learning and development may benefit others

Extracts from this document...


D1: Evaluate how personal learning and development may benefit others In this assessment, I will be evaluating how my personal learning and development has benefitted others around me. Most of the time, the process of learning from others can be highly beneficial and can be very effective but occasionally, the wrong type of information or knowledge can be passed on to others which may not necessarily help them in any way but may actually be a hindrance. Therefore, I will be assessing both the positive and negative impacts of learning and understand what effect it can impose on others. There are vast number of things we can learn from people, whether they are present in our lives or other media influences. Many learning experiences have a positive impact on us but can also be negative. Some of the things that can be transferred to one person to another start from a very young age, and one of them is learning to walk. We learn this primarily through our parents by them helping us to gain our balance as they hold us when we try to move our legs in a walking motion. ...read more.


One of the crucial ways that personal learning and development can benefit ourselves is by learning to become independent by developing skills personal to and maybe unique. In this way, we are not a drag on the welfare or social system of the community. This can also benefit other people by sharing the knowledge and expertise we have in certain areas that other may need help or aid from, therefore then being able to offer our assistance through our credentials . As well as professional development, my skills and knowledge could also benefit people outside a working environment but a more personal one. Friends and family benefit majorly from our personal learning processes because they see us develop and learn so personal attributes I have can strengthen those in the ones of friends and family as well as motivation being passed to other peers. As my learning process broadens, groups around me would then be motivated to increase and reinforce their learning ability in order to develop themselves. In the main scheme of things, it is a very important and significant part of our lives as it builds and helps us to achieve our own goals by working to our full potential. ...read more.


As well as ?perfect image?, the media tends to contrive a lot wrong beliefs about religion and as a result, the public tend to stereotype because of this. Another major factor that can influence the quality and quantity of our learning is our family. Most families and parents tend to encourage and support the individual in order to better their learning and make them work hard but when family discomforts and disputes get in the way, it can affect how the individual learns and they may feel withdrawn from their work and would be discouraged to continue with their efforts. When the working environment becomes confused and no longer a place for study, it may no doubt cast negativity on the quality of our work. Personal learning does not only impact the individual but also contributes an impact on others around us, whether it be friends, class mates or staff. If we ourselves acquire new skills that could help and benefit us, the people on the receiving end will also benefit from this. For example, if you find out you have a specific skill in being a great communicator, a service placement user can get to know you better as a person, therefore improving your relationship with them.  ...read more.
