;Page 4 CLINCH VALLEY TIMES St. Paul, Va. Thursday, May 4, 2017 , In the world that we live ,and work in today with its ~rapid speed of change in knowledge and technology, ~we adults have to make a choice to either continue to ileam or allow our skills .and knowledge to become ~obsolete. Adults who !choose to continue learning must do so under certain conditions. Just what are these con- .ditions that lend them- selves to optimal adult t learning? Dorothy Billington, Ph.D., has stud- ied the types of learning *environments that best help adults to experience signif- icant learning and growth. Her study investigated -,which factors in adult '-learning environments best ~facilitate adult growth and ~development. When I read i Billington's article, I was ' encouraged about the ;learning environment that ,we provide through :Southwest Regional Adult **Education classes. Our *instructors work diligently 30 ensure that each of our ~leamers, who commits to personal development and growth, has the ability to do so in the proper class- room environment. Billington's study iden- tified the following seven key factors found in learn- ing environments that stim- ulate adult development: 1. An environment where students feel safe and supported, where indi- vidual needs and unique- ness are honored, where abilities and life achieve- ments are acknowledged and respected, 2. An environment that fosters intellectual freedom and encourages experimen- tation and creativity. 3. An environment where faculty treats stu- dents as peers- accepted and respected as intelli- gent, experienced adults whose opinions are lis- tened to, honored, appreci- ated. Such faculty mem- bers often Comment that they learn as much from their students as the stu- dents learn from them. 4. Self-directed learn- ing, where students take responsibility for their own learning. They work with faculty to design individual learning programs which address what each person needs and wants to learn in order to function optimally in their profession. 5. Pacing, or intellectual challenge. Optimal pacing is challenging people just beyond their present level of ability. If challenged too far beyond, people give up. If challenged too little, they become bored and learn lit- tle. 6. Active involvement in learning, as opposed to passively listening to lec- tnres. Where students and instructors interact and dia- logue, where students try out new ideas in the work- place, where exercises and experiences are used to bolster facts and theory, adults grow more. 7. Regular feedback mechanisms for students to tell faculty what works best for them and what they want and need to learn and faculty who hear and make changes based on student input.

Back in those days they called it a picture show. It was a Saturday evening and my Morn took me to St. Paul and was going to let me see the movie "Gene Autry." "Well, we got seat- ed and the building was already full with more peo- ple coming in. Upon the screen was some writing. At the end of that, on the screen stood a big white horse with a black ring around his eye. About that time, the usher come and said he was going to take all of the children up into the balcony to make room for the people there to see the movie. So I asked Morn, "When will this show be over?" She said, "When you see that white horse come back up there again, the movie is over and we'll be leaving." Well, we went on up into the balcony, a whole bunch of youngens and I didn't know any of them. Shortly after the movie started I saw that horse again and again and again. Well, moments seemed like hours and I thought that this thing was surely over. And I knew that since it was dark in there that if I stood up and hollered, "Mommy" that there were probably a whole capacity of "Mommies" in there. So which one would answer, I wouldn't know. So I stood to my feet, halfway in tears, and called my moth- er's name. She came up into the balcony and told me to sit down and be quiet. I said, "The movie's over." She said, "Oh no. The movie's just getting started." I said, "You told me when I saw that horse with that ring around his eye then that would be the end of it. I've seen that horse 75 times." Nevertheless, that was my first trip to the movie. I'm here to tell you that I didn't enjoy that movie. Years went by and again history repeated itself. Again, I found myself scared and troubled and needed to talk to someone so I remembered when I was a little boy and stood to my feet and hollered, "Hey Zinnie!" This time, things were different. I was in a place where Morn could no longer help me or come to me. I couldn't call on one in Congress or a Senator, or a lawyer or even the President of the United States. There was only one thing left so I hollered for Jesus, "Lord! I need help." After about four hours of crying, praying and want- ing to hold on to the world with one hand and the Lord with the other, then I came to the place where I real- ized that he had to be first or not anything. When I was ready to surrender it all. then Jesus heard me just like Mom did in that big crowd. I was a lost ball in high weeds. I'm so glad that Jesus heard me and came to my rescue. Had he not, God only knows where I would be today. It's not always been a flower bed of roses. I've seen the storm clouds hang low. I remembered that the dark- est hour is just before day- light. And I can tell you from experience that Jesus is the answer to the ques- tion and a present help in time of need. And most of all, He's willing to listen if you'll just holler for Him.
