Curious makes game of life-long learning

Boot Camp feature for Wednesday, April 20, 2016

Making a game of life long learning.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.      Curious.com, launched by tech entrepreneur Justin Kitch,  has been aimed at bringing people who want to learn together with qualified teachers in whatever the subject happens to be.  Anything from dog obedience and jewelry making to photography and guitar playing.   Now Curious is out with what Kitch calls Curious Quotient/Game of Life….

“The new part is that we’ve layered on top of that something we call the CQ Wheel, which takes your Curious Quotient or your interests or curiosities and kind of maps our library to those interests and helps you every day learn something new.  And we play a little game with them.  We try to help you kind of fill up your CQ Wheel and earn your CQ points in order to keep your curiosity sharp.”

Not a bad idea at any age.    Curious.com is subscription based…but you can give it a try for free.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.    I’m Fred Fishkin.
