Make College Students More Courageous

Reduce Fears and Anxieties

If you want your students to be more courageous, remember that as a professor, your role is to teach, guide, model and inspire, not to show students how tough “the real world is.” Learning new content and balancing education with life is already hard enough, no need to instill fear on top of this. As an added bonus, as you minimize fears and anxieties, and students push through, they build confidence.

To minimize fears and anxieties in your students, there are several things you can do, here are some tips:

  • Set course expectations up front.
  • Link students to helpful resources.
  • Give them tips on what to do if they encounter technology problems.
  • Provide your contact information and answer emails/calls in less than 24 hours.
  • Give a little leeway in the event a student had a major life event occur during a specific week.
  • Humanize yourself. You can do this by sharing a little about who you are personally, doing videos in the courseroom, using humor, building rapport.
  • Don’t give negative feedback in the open forum. Use personal email or gradebook feedback.
  • Give feedback on

eLearning for Students

1. Online Learning Accommodates Everyone’s Needs

This digital revolution has led to remarkable changes in how the content is accessed, consumed, discussed, and shared. Online educational courses can be taken up by office goers and housewives too, at the time that suits them. Depending on their availability and comfort, many people choose to learn at weekends or evenings. The online method of learning is best suited for everyone.

2. Lectures Can Be Taken Many Times

One can access the study program an unlimited number of times, unlike classroom teaching, with online learning. This can be very helpful at the time of revision while preparing for an exam.

3. Offers Updated Content

One of the prime benefits of online learning is that it assures you that your content are up to date and based on the latest industry trends.

4. Quick Delivery Of Lessons

eLearning is an approach to provide quick delivery of lessons. In comparison with traditional classroom teaching techniques, this mode has generally snappy conveyance cycles. This shows the time required to

Stress of Exams

Sometimes in life, it feels like everything is pouring down on you at once. From what I am seeing, it seems like you have a lot on your plate. These are all important exams which will determine a major part of your life. But there are several things you can do.

Firstly, it is important to plan your life out. Since you have such a busy schedule, it is important to plan almost every second of your life for the next few months in order to be able to properly prepare for everything. Having a daily, weekly or even monthly planner can help you evaluate what you have to do and when you have to do them. University applications have deadlines that you are pressed to meet. Putting down these deadlines and crafting a few deadlines of your own could be helpful. Fixing the dates for studying can help to ensure that you do not procrastinate studying for these important exams. Also, putting down things that you need to do-like buy stationery for the exams- can ensure

Make Kid More Organized

The next and the biggest hurdle is the bed time. There will always be distractions, but don’t allow a flexibility of more than 30 minutes on weekdays. Put your foot down if need be and create a lights out environment. Rest assured that the resistance won’t last a month and your baby would start to yawn before you could drag him to bed.

Introduce your child to a day-planner or if you are not a gadget fan then stick to traditional timetables. Put reminders for important dates and paper submissions, keeping scope for sufficient action time; coax your child into action accordingly. He will be pleased with himself as he would be appreciated at school for never missing out any test dates or submissions. That is the time when he will begin to act without your efforts.

Get an agenda book or ask him to use his school diary for writing his tasks and not just complains and holiday notices. Make it mandatory to list all homework assignments, submissions, and tests date wise even if he can remember. Check what he has got on his plate for the day and help him manage his time. This

Tricks Choose the Best University

1. Opting for the Subject of Your Choice

Choosing a course that interests you holds the utmost importance. You will not only be studying it for the next few years but, it will determine your future successes. In order to first select a subject, you need to carry out research via the internet and attend as many university open houses as possible to learn, and gather information on which field of study appeals to you. In addition to that, surfing the internet for electives, or job abundance can also assist in making the right decision.

2. Looking Up University Rankings

Every known university will have a general ranking available on the internet. The best universities have separate tables for each subject, while some have calculated averages on display. For a student, comparing the ratios of one university with another, will bear fruit. For example, the student to staff ratio in different universities will determine the amount of individual attention that a teacher can give. The lower this ratio is, the better it is for a student.

3. Scaling the Library

When you are going to a university to study, it is a given

Home Learning

One of the best things about a home learning course is that you can work through the materials at your own pace. You can decide when, where and how you are going to do it, and if you are not in the mindset to do it today, you can schedule a time to focus on it tomorrow instead.

For those who have other commitments in life, such as another job, children or other activities you participate in, it means that you can focus on your learning at a time that fits in with you. Providing that you fulfil the expectations that are within the course, such as getting assignments completed on time, your tutors have no idea when or where the work took place. This also means that for those with limited resources such as a computer, you can use libraries or internet cafes and you limitations do not need to be an obstacle.

Home learning provides a great platform for personal and professional development too. Undertaking home learning for your own personal development means that you can increase your skills in a way that will have a positive impact upon many areas of your life.

Making Schedule Flexible With Online Learning

Flexibility is a must for most young adults. Another growing trend is “work-life-balance”. This of course is easier said that done. Most people know or at the least have heard of it, however if it was as easy as flicking on a light switch, we’d all be resting on our sofa beds, or learning how to cook better or learning a new language. Before online learning was even considered, it was simply a catch-phrase. Busy people took night classes after work, hopping on their bikes, cycling through the windy night as they sit in crammed classes and begin the exciting journey of learning.

Now, we find ourselves at a time where learning can be achieved anywhere through means of technology and while technology changes, our lifestyles and flexibility often don’t. 50 years ago, you’d organize everything with a pager that was marketed as an alarm clock plus belt and jeans. But these days, scheduling and flexibility has never been more important, especially for those that work beyond borders. To the average adult, that flexibility is becoming more and more of a requirement. But flexibility isn’t something that can be bought at your local gas station, or touched

Computer Based Examination

– Time Management
The online examinations demand less of human interaction. Earlier, the students have to listen to the invigilator, require more time to highlight the correct response and make use of specific pen or pencil that will be acceptable to mark an answer.

– Seamless Internet Connection
The computer based exam is conducted using a Local Area Network (LAN). This offers a glitch-free exposure to the student for examination. In these exams, there are no worries of question paper leaking or cheating among the adjusting set of applicants.

– Basic Knowledge of a Computer
Candidates appearing in a system based examination just require basic knowledge of computer. This includes the familiarity to operate a keyboard and mouse. Meanwhile, an aspirant does get the option to go back and review the previous responses marked for the questions.

– Easy Amendment to Marked Responses
This is an add-on feature over the pen-pencil based examination. Using this, a student can easily review the responses marked and change the answer if required to do so in a computer based test. Where, as in a pen-pencil based paper the student cannot change the response if marked in an OMR

Finish Your Homeschool Year Strong

1. Do more hands on learning
Those experiments you skipped during winter when your days were packed, now is a great time to do them! Not only will it be fun for the kiddos and a great change of pace for them and you but you’ll also be reviewing previous material at the same time. What homeschooler doesn’t love that!

2. Get outside
Now that the weather is warmer take the lessons outside. Pack up the books and move the learning outdoors. Hearing the birds singing, getting some Vitamin D and lots a fresh air can be very energizing. Spread a blanket out on your lawn or at a local park. Pack some water and snacks and enjoy learning in a natural setting. (Just don’t forget the sunblock!)

3. Get moving
Play learning games that involve moving. For example, if your kids are learning addition write the numbers in chalk on a sidewalk and give them a problem and then have them jump to the correct answer. We are currently doing this with multiplication and division facts. Don’t forget to move with them. It’s a great way to get some physical activity for yourself too!

Organize A Notebooking Station

Organizing a Notebooking Station

Find a wide assortment of notebooking templates. You can create them yourself, or download templates from thousands of available online notebooking templates.

Organize your templates into files or notebooks.

If you are using the traditional hanging file folder system, create folders for your templates to make them easy to locate. Some example categories would be: blank templates, countries, ancient history, floral, insects, character studies, and holidays. There are many many more categories. Simply add new templates into new folders as they are acquired.

If you chose to organize your templates into notebooks, you may want to fill a three ring binder with plastic page holders. Print of masters of each template for your child and use file dividers to organize by topic.

Organize your Art Supplies.

Create an area, bin, or holder to give your child easy access to scissors, glue, crayons, colored pencils, and markers. Replenish them a few times year to keep the supplies fresh!

Create a Journal for each child’s completed notebooking pages.

Your children will be very proud of their notebooking pages when they are complete. Validate their hard work by providing

Bondage of Education

I will never forget the first time I failed a test. It was in fifth with one of my favorite teachers. I remember receiving the test back with a zero on the front and instantly covering the test up so no one could not see the sign of failure. The teacher must have seen my shock because I was told to stay after class. She explained to me how I had made a 100 but I did not “take the test right” which is what resulted in the zero. From then on, I developed what college students call “test anxiety.” I worked to follow directions, to be structured, and to never ask a question that could possibly be wrong. I made straight A’s, participated in school organizations, was president of my class, and lived to fill the resume that would be sent to potential colleges. I did what students are expected to do. When I came to college I was excited because I could finally learn outside the perimeters of standardized tests. What I did not expect was to hear phrases from professors such as, “don’t worry this will not be on the test,” or having to spend

Blended Learning

  • It augments the benefits of training: It is well known that learning is enhanced when the same concept is presented in different ways. This is the principle behind ‘Blended Learning’. After presenting the concepts in an instructor led face to face training session, the knowledge retention is significantly improved with the addition of a new method in the learning process, through elearning or gamification. It delivers a much richer training experience and helps employees to retain the new information better by applying on different platforms like elearning and gamification.

  • It reduces and simplifies logistics: Each method of training has its pros and cons. Face to face training when led by an accomplished trainer can achieve profound results; however, managing the logistics of all the participants can be a nightmare. But when the live programs are reduced and the training is supported by video conferences and elearning, then the impact is not compromised. The last two training methods reduces the need for logistics and is also eco-friendly; e-copies of the training materials can be share thereby reducing the need for printing.

  • It allows employees greater control over their training: Microlearning is

Benefits of Home Tuition

1. Get tuition at your convenience

The great advantage of home tutoring is the convenience for the student. Education comes at your door, no need to spend valuable time going to coaching centres.

With home tutoring, students can learn at their own comfort. It gives you the flexibility to decide your preferred days and time for getting tuition. Students can also discuss with their tutor regarding the tuition place, time and days.

2. Opportunities for pre-learning

Home or private tuition gives students the opportunity for learning a subject or concept before it is discussed in school. In this process, the school or classroom can aid students revising their subjects, and infuse confidence in them.

With this model of home tutoring, learning any subject becomes quite easy. Students can quickly gain command over their subject which will also increase their efficiency. The main advantage of this method is that it creates a better image of the student within his circle and among the teachers because he is already updated with all their homework.

3. Detailed productive feedback

An answer to any specific question has many aspects and demands proper guidance to write

Preparing Child For The Boarding Environment

• Check if the present school provides a flexi-board facility in which you can let him board at school for a few weekends so that he can eventually get used to the idea. The stay can be used for extra classes, sports training prior to an important match or some co-curricular activities.

• Never miss out on the open days for new parents. These are usually held during the last two weeks of the last term, prior to new admissions. It is usually a great opportunity for your child to mix up with inmates and staff. It would be much easier for him to adjust when he’s already aware of what to expect at his new home. Moreover, you can also get to know other parents who would be going through the same phase of preparations and mutual sharing of experiences and suggestions always tend to happen when all are on the same ship.

• Find out if anyone from your circle or your child’s school would be joining the same school in the same term or is already a student there. Call them home more often and encourage your child to make friends with them.

Daily Practices of Unstressed Unschoolers

  • Get your game on. Not only will you get increased family connections by making a daily commitment to play a game, you will have the opportunity to teach and model so many other concepts in real time: math, reading, logic, problem solving, and of course the ability to lose graciously. Engagement is the key to authentic and powerful learning and connections = engagement. Setting aside a small block of time to play a game with your kids, giving them your full and undivided attention, is time well spent, and the payoff far exceeds the investment. Board games, card games, games that need no equipment – the opportunities for learning are limitless and easily found. Find what works best in your family, try to set this time aside in your daily routine. Maybe after dinner, before each person gets to go off and spend an hour or so in our own personal free time before bed. In the summer, take the games outdoors and use big body movements. In winter take advantage of the huge array of amazing board games available these days – there are so many more than Monopoly and Life – though both are

Studies Readiness

Timing in handling this transitional topic is a challenge to all the scholars. They do not always have insights and necessary information to base their consideration on. Access to information is costly for some, and in most cases their school vocational guidance officers are not exposed to the latest trends. As a result they wake up very late and end up taking studies and career directions that are not well researched.

The schools and parents are encouraged to invest in mentorship program to support the scholars in their studies and career choices. However, such programs alone are not sufficient. The schools must work together with the various mentors in conceptualizing and designing educational tours to the institutions of higher learning (universities and colleges), attending studies and career fairs, exhibitions, etc.

The interaction between the schools and the industry should be effected in early years of the scholars development. The schools must employ career counselors, guidance teachers, and industry liaison officers. Companies must be encouraged to adopt schools under their Corporate Social Responsibility programs and see the scholars through to the universities. Such scholars could become scholarship recipients of these companies. Ultimately they would graduate to become

Child to Be Smarter at Math

Before I tell you how to make this work, however, before I tell you the one step method for making your child’s math grades shoot up to an A, let me tell you the secret: you have to get your child to appreciate math as a game.

Hey, they can play video games like a world class champ! And they can program your smart phone like it is an abacus! And the difference is that they want to. And by getting them to play with numbers in a games fashion, they will want, and they will excel, and their grades will go up.

To begin with, I taught school for a number of years. First as a teacher, then owning my own private school. I used the method I am about to tell you with great success, and I got the kids to use this method during ‘play time.’ That’s right. Instead of them going out and actually playing, I got them to do math and ‘think’ (he he) they were playing.

Now, the biggest lack in math schooling, in my humble opinion, is the lack of basics. This is the times table, the addition

Reporting on Biographies

James A. Bryan grew up in rural South Carolina and moved to North Carolina at the age of fourteen for more education. Then, God made it possible for Bryan to attend and graduate from Princeton University. In 1889 he arrived in the young city of Birmingham to pastor the Third Presbyterian Church. Indeed, he became a pastor to the city of Birmingham itself.

To see how this happened, follow a day in the life of Brother Bryan of Birmingham (Chapter 5 His Daily Round):

5:30 a.m. – a younger preacher filling in for Brother Bryan’s regular driver arrived at Bryan’s home.

6:00 a.m. – they arrived for Pastor Bryan to preach to workers at a transfer company.

6:30 a.m. – Breakfast at a Greek Restaurant provided free for Brother Bryan and anyone who accompanied him. Before leaving Brother Bryan prayed for the staff at the restaurant.

7:00 a.m.-Fire Station # 4 – Brief preaching session to the firefighters.

7:45 a.m. – WKBC – Radio Station Morning Devotions – Brother Bryan sang a few lines of “Take Time to Be Holy,” prayed and spoke from Isaiah and then closed in prayer.

8:15
