For those of you who've read my posts previously, you probably know that I'm at a high school that offers IT courses (and I've been struggling a little bit.) Anyways, I decided to follow into Tier 2 of the IT course at my high school - but I'm starting to have issues again, and would like some of your guys' recommendations or input, if no one minds.
It's ironic though, how I used to be interested in wanting a career as an IT person. But ever since I've taken the courses at school it seems like almost as if I've lost an interest for technology related things.
I think the main reason is because it's all about teaching yourself, and learning on your own. I like that approach, but there's just so much reading. If we had more time, I think I'd actually do it, and if there were less distractions in the class. And I'm more of the student that learns from doing.
I thought that when I'd be taking these courses that it'd be all hands on, and that your teacher would be explaining to you, this is how you remove a virus, or this is that, and that is that (and so on.)
I get the reading aspect, and the self-learning aspect, since it's really like the only way to learn IT. Since it's just about memorization (literally) and it's more easier for you, since you can technically go at your own pace. But most of the time we only have like a week to get through a chapter.
Anyone have any recommendations for me to get motivated back into IT, and to not be so lazy? I know colleges love to see students who have those certifications, and it shows that you've attempted college level courses (and the IT courses are rigorous as well) and of course, they'll look great on resumes, and applications.
Thank you in advance.
