Not long ago, I participated in a workshop at the Institute for the Future on what they are calling Extreme Learning. They have just launched a site to provide resources for alternative learning paths and to share stories of extreme learners (like mine in the video above). On the extreme learners site, there are more stories from the workshop participants, who were a fascinating group from diverse backgrounds. This project is a part of the Future of Learning program.

I don’t understand how this is any different from just being self taught in general. A lot of us are self taught.
Yes, many of us are self-taught. But many others can’t see outside of the traditional framework of institutionalized education. I think this is a way of raising awareness of other paths to learning, especially now that so much subject material is easily accessible outside of the traditional institutions.
Good point. :)
