Ways to Succeed in School

Wed, 01 Feb 2012 04:51:00 +0000

The best way to succeed in school is to work hard, yet without proper learning strategies, you will most likely fail to attain the grades you deserve. Have you ever thought about how to learn to gain better grades at school? A new e-book is available at http://tiny.cc/pzeju that deals with the subject of holistic learning. Holistic learning is a process of learning ideas, theories and other course material in such a manner that requires less rote memorization and more implementation of mind application.

The natural way of learning things are to divide a process in smaller parts and to understand each part thoroughly and then to make interlinking between what you have learnt in parts. Learning is quite different than studying or memorizing things. When you learn something, it gets embedded in your mind to long last. You can recall and use the knowledge you learnt anytime and in any situation. On the other hand, when you study some topic to memorize it, you try to enforce it on your mind. Such memory doesn't last long and that is why many students suffer the situation of forgetfulness during the examination hours.

The general idea is to avoid rote memorization of things and to stress more on understanding the ideas behind a subject. Once you start understanding the basics of a subject, it becomes easy to memorize it within minutes. Thus, it is possible to learn more study less and gain better grades by adapting to the holistic manner of learning.

The very first requirement to learn and get better grades is to have proper learning strategies. You should try to create your interest in your subject course or study material. This is possible by trying to divide whole subject in smaller parts and try to understand each part thoroughly and clearly. When you will start, you may find it a little hard to change your manner of learning things. But gradually, you will find that your speed to understand and learn the various concepts, ideas and theories of your course subject is increasing.

There is an online course available to help you in excelling at your school studies with the help of proper holistic learning studies. The course is meant to make you understand the difference between learning and merely memorizing things without understanding them. The online course claims to increase the ability of your learning. The approach of the online course available at http://tiny.cc/pzeju is logical and it has full potential to help you to get better grades at school.

Top 5 Things to Consider Before Studying Abroad

Tue, 21 Sep 2010 08:36:00 +0000

Studying abroad can be a wonderful supplement to a college education, but there are several important factors to consider before stepping foot on the plane.1. Do the classes offered at the study abroad site fit into your course of study?The last thing you want is to be forced to graduate a semester late because your courses abroad don't fit into your planned curriculum. If you realize that your desired study abroad location doesn't offer the courses you need, or doesn't give enough credit for the courses it does offer, try sending some emails to your school to see if arrangements can be made.2. The Language BarrierSome people go abroad to further their knowledge of a language they're already studying. Others go to a country only knowing how to say "hello" and "goodbye." The decision depends upon what you are trying to gain from the experience. While it is fully possible to "survive" in many countries simply by using English, not speaking the language will make it much more difficult to absorb the many customs and nuances of another culture.3. The Social SceneWhat may be a familiar social custom back at home could vary greatly in another country. Before deciding on a study abroad location, do some research on the country's nightlife, gender dynamics, and laws such as the drinking age or smoking in bars. You may find that the city goes to sleep too early for your liking, or that the country doesn't offer any socially liberal options fitting your preferences. The social experience can make or break a study abroad trip, so it's important to do your research beforehand. 4. FoodWhile it may seem to some like a non-issue, the cuisine in your country of choice can have a serious impact on your enjoyment while abroad. If you've just spend a year keeping off – or working off – the "Freshman 15," the last thing you want is to gain it all back in a country whose eating habits don't quite encourage a healthy lifestyle. Also, many countries don't make it easy on vegetarians, vegans, people with food allergies, or those who eat Kosher. You can learn a lot about a culture through its food; you won't want to have to avoid the cuisine entirely because of dietary restrictions. 5. The Exchange RateStudying abroad can be an extremely expensive ordeal, and it's important to think in advance about the cost of living in your new, temporary home. If items such as toothpaste, soap, or even food cost twice as much as they do in your own country, can you see yourself paying these prices for several months? Your trip abroad shouldn't force you to have to take out a loan later on; there are certainly cheaper locations in which to study that will be just as fun and fulfilling.Author: Lily Faden[...]



Schools Need to Teach New Methods, Focus on Active Learning

Mon, 06 Sep 2010 16:39:00 +0000

Schools are renowned for training well-prepared students who excel in exams, to produce more self-motivated and critical thinkers. The curriculum has been cut, new teaching methods introduced and change are under way to fine-tune methods for assessing students and ranking schools. Teachers around the world are united in their goal to send students from cocooned classroom environments carrying with them the highest hopes of fulfilment in the outside world.

But how best to achieve that aim?

It is generally accepted that the higher the level qualification, the higher the likelihood of today's students becoming tomorrow's success stories. But to first progress to universities or college, and then flourish at tertiary level, high school students must steer-or be steered-through tough years of laying appropriate educational foundations.

For instance, in South Korea, active participation in lessons is a new experience for grade-nine students at Seoul muddle school. They are more used to being spoon-fed as they prepare top advance the following year into 36 months of high pressure learning for university.

In order to avoid the rote-learning path by leading students in new style English lessons where students given a scenario, then related assignments. The exercise was part of the new-style English lessons. The students are given a scenario at the beginning of the class. Liked the Sars situation and they take it from there, working on various assignments related to it that involve writing, oral presentations, research and constructing props. They came up with a rap, wrote a song to be dedicated on radio to the medical staff, and set up a websites , which allows students to pen their gratitude.

The active methods allows them to see how they can apply what they learn and cut across several subjects. In the thank-you assignment, they practized not only English, but also music, ICT, and art and craft. Students expanded their vocabulary and worked on sentence structure when they were forced to use standard English in their rap and song. They learnt music when they had to harmonize the song they composed. Students also drew colorful charts, so their classmates could follow the lyrics as they sang. When they had the task of setting up a tour agency, they learnt the basics of starting a business and some of the problems businessmen face, such as how to attract customers when your business is hit by heavy storms.

Previously, each class was divided into groups, and each worked on one aspect of a project , like the research, writing and presentation. The old methods was subject-based and done in isolation. The Storyline method, on the other hand, integrates what they have to cover with several activities, making it more enjoyable and fun. The best thing about storyline is that the children don't realize they're actually doing real work like comprehension because it's all built in. So they look forward to it and ask when the next topic is coming along when it ends.

High School Scholarship – Find The Suitable One

Sun, 05 Sep 2010 19:00:00 +0000

If you are a parent and you find that due to financial crisis you are unable to pay the school fees or meet educational expenses of your child's high school, opt for high school scholarship. You must keep in mind that scholarships are out there for all types of students and your child will also be eligible and fulfill the requirements for one or the other scholarship program. If you wish to send him to college you will find that college expenses are extremely high and unaffordable for average earning parents. In fact, scholarships are the best way of funding for your child's higher education.

However, you have to be prepared for the long and time taking search process. It is a simple logic here. Since you need free financial aid and at the same time you want your child to win the award money too, you will have to invest more than enough time to find the most suitable scholarship programs. Make sure the scholarship money is sufficient to fulfill your child's needs and your child abilities match with the requirements set for that scholarship program.

Most often parents do not know how to begin the search for suitable high school scholarship for their child. The first and the best place to start with is the financial aid office of the college in which your child is expecting to attend. Do not approach only one college, you must have at least three levels of preferences so that if by any reasons your child is not accepted in one college, he will be able to get admission in the college of second or third preferences. The guidance counselor might turn out to be extremely helpful here.

Take help from Internet where you will find widest variety of options available. Free scholarship search engines are also there for your assistance. Search through the site and find a scholarship that suits your child. If children of any of your friend or colleague had received the scholarship, ask them about the high school scholarship and get an idea about how to apply for it successfully.

10 Ways to Think Better

Mon, 19 Jul 2010 15:19:00 +0000

1. Time it rightMost older people think more clearly in the morning; most younger people, in the afternoon. Work out when your own best 'thinking time' is and set it aside it for your most challenging brain work.2. Get a good education - but don't overdo itPsychologist Dean Keith Simonton says that too much specialised higher education can damage your ability to think creatively. 'You don't become a great novelist by getting a PhD in creative writing.'3. Listen to ConfuciusWriting things down is the number one memory aid used by memory researchers themselves. As the Chinese proverb puts it, the weakest ink lasts longer than the best memory.4. Kick start your dayResearch shows that the amount of caffeine in a cup of coffee can help you concentrate. But if you're prone to anxiety, you're probably better off avoiding it.5. Anchor new memories to established ones'Think of your existing memory as a scaffold upon which to fit new information,' says cognitive researcher Denise Park. 'Don't isolate new information. Always relate it to something.'6. Practise, practise, practiseLearning and repeatedly practising new skills appears to change the brain's internal organisation. A study showed that periodic training sessions helped volunteers in their 70s perform better in cognitive and memory tasks than they had when they were seven years younger. 'Practice really helps,' says psychologist Len Giambra. 'A well-practised older person will be faster than an unpractised younger person.'7. Give your ideas a chanceMany of us are rewarded for our abilities to rapidly evaluate facts and make quick decisions. Creativity demands a much more leisurely and playful approach - a willingness to give 'absurd' ideas a chance.8. Pick a stimulating profession and an intelligent partnerIntriguing studies from Poland suggest that people whose careers demand they exercise their intellect are more likely to sustain high levels of mental performance during their lives. Marrying someone intelligent may also provide you with ongoing stimulation.9. Expose yourself to multiple experiencesCreativity often boils down to the ability to adapt solutions from one aspect of life to another. Velcro for instance, was inspired by burrs that stick to your clothing. The 'ring-pull' top on cans was originally based on the way a banana is peeled.10. Learn from LeonardoIn his book, How to Think Like Leonardo da Vinci, author Michael Gelb offers several brain-enriching strategies that worked for the ultimate Renaissance man. Among them: learning to juggle and drawing with your non-writing hand.by: Mendim[...]

4 Common Mistakes In Teaching Via Powerpoint

Thu, 22 Apr 2010 02:15:00 +0000

As the lights are turned off and PowerPoint presentation begins, it is the time for teachers to have a vivid and interesting class to their students. As we know, PowerPoint is an essential presentation tool in education field.According to the research of Dr. Treicher, an experimental psychologist who made two well-known experiments about obtaining information and maintaining knowledge information obtain and knowledge maintain. People can get more benefit from teaching if they can learn knowledge by watching and listening, then exchange their opinions by discussion. So PowerPoint presentation with pictures and even audio can be used to facilitate the teaching effect.However, there are some mistaken ideas when some teachers have classes with PowerPoint presentation. Here are four of the most common issues teachers should pay attention to. 1. Demonstration effect becomes principal thing Don't be too dazzling How do you feel about this PowerPoint? Many teachers like to add lots of visual effects, pictures and animations in their PowerPoint presentations, making their lessons like Hollywood blockbusters. In fact, teachers can pay more attention in multimedia teaching. PowerPoint presentation is just a tool and it can't replace the role of teacher. Remember that you are using PowerPoint for giving lessons but not giving lessons for presenting your PowerPoint slides. Besides, the overmany pictures, video and audio files can cause your PowerPoint presentation file size extremely huge. So use these visual effects carefully when it is necessary.2. Use computer screen to replace the white board Use computer screen to replace the white board Do you like to watch the slide like this? Some teachers put all things including lecture sheet, test and even whole teaching plan into their PowerPoint presentation. At first sight your presentation looks like a Wikipedia, but you will find it hard to interact with your students during the class because they have already known what you will say next by browsing PowerPoint presentation. On the other hand, PowerPoint presentation is not a teleprompter for teaching. Teacher should lead their students to exploit their creative skills and learn things in a positive way. By sharing knowledge with computer screen only, you just use the computer screen instead of the blackboard to do the presentation job, and you lose the interactive teaching effect which PowerPoint should achieve. 3. Thinking training can be done with PowerPoint presentation PowerPoint is Used in Interactive Class Make your students active The courseware made with PowerPoint is aim to make good use of the combination of video and audio. Students can get more visual impact and better understanding by watching the presentation and listening to the narration. But one more problem is that the presentation cannot be served as an alternative of thinking training. Communication is a must during the multimedia teaching. Teachers encourage their students to ask and solve questions during the classes, but not simply read off the slides. You can also leave five minutes for questioning and solving their questions. This ensures the quality of your lessons. 4. Neglect the importance of review after class Have PowerPoint class Having class is far away from enough It is a quite tough thing to ask all students to master new knowledge in the class, so the review after class also plays an important role. And that is something bothers many teachers. Since not all the students have MS Office installed on their computer, they may have no chance to have a good review by watching courseware once again. However, you can try some other ways to make your PowerPoint presentation available on your students' computers. Here are some flexible ways for you to make your presentation available to more students such as converting your presen[...]



Scholarships - The 7 Best Offline Ways To Find Them

Sat, 03 Apr 2010 02:34:00 +0000

The first stop many students make when looking for scholarships is the internet; and with good reason. Scholarship database websites are very popular, convenient, and easy to use. The appeal comes from only having to type in your personal information once while getting in return many scholarships for which you can apply. However, as popular and efficient as these websites are, the fact is: they are not all-inclusive and do not include many of the scholarships you may find within your local community.1. School's Career CounselorIf you don't look anywhere else, make sure you at least stop into your school's career counseling office. One of the services that this office provides is access to an updated list of local scholarships. As an organization, business, or individual creates a new scholarship, one of the first things it will do is forward the information to the career centers at the local schools. This information is ready and available to you. Go check it out. 2. Hometown Newspaper In your local newspaper, you are sure to have seen pictures of students receiving scholarships; this a great resource. Start compiling a list of the awards you see here. Find back issues of the paper online. In the search box use the term "scholarship". You might just find the perfect scholarship for you. 3. Community Service Clubs Organizations such as the local VFW, Rotary Club, Lion's Club, Jaycees, Boys and Girls Clubs, etc. regularly hold fundraisers for the purpose of providing scholarships to the students in their communities. A quick call to these clubs will get you information about these awards. Your local library or community center in town will have a list of these clubs for you to target. To make it even easier, in most cases the national chapter of each club has contact information for their local chapters online. 4. Religious OrganizationA number of religious groups offer scholarship awards to the student members of their congregation. Ask your priest, rabbi, monk, pastor, etc. if an award is available. Also, check the national organization of the religious group as many offer national scholarships. 5. All in the FamilyParent's Workers Union, Place of Work, or Military Service If your parents or even grandparents (don't forget about them) are members of a union, you may be in luck. Many unions provide scholarships. If your parents aren't members but you plan to enter a field with a union, you may also qualify. As an employee benefit, many employers offer scholarships to their employees and their families. Have your parents check with the human resources department where they work to see if there is an award waiting for you. Did your parents or grandparents serve in the U.S. Military? If so, you might be in luck. If they belong to a military association, see if that group gives away scholarship awards. 6. Your Place of WorkJust as your parents' employers may give out scholarships, so might your own. Check with your manager even if you only work part time. You might be surprised at what you find. 7. Extracurricular ActivitiesBeing involved in extracurricular activities is not only fun but looks great on your college application. But did you also know that through your club you may be able to get a scholarship? Ask your club advisor and check the national office of the club to see if there is anything available through them. Some of the clubs that do have awards are Girl Scouts, The National Honor Society, Future Farmers of America, Junior Achievement, and even your fraternity or sorority. These offline scholarships do take a bit more work and time to find but the payoff can be huge. While the internet is still a very helpful reference, make sure you don't make it your only one. Log off your computer and head on out the door. You may just come home with a handful of applications [...]



Educational Tools For 2010

Mon, 15 Mar 2010 05:01:00 +0000

Interactive educational tools are revolutionising teaching in classrooms across the country. With interactive whiteboards encouraging pupil participation and granting teachers access to a wider range of educational resources than ever before, whiteboards are looking to be the most important educational tool for 2010 - and teachers can combine their whiteboards with interactive tools to improve their user experience and make sure pupils are getting the most out of the technology.

Without the proper tools to unlock its full potential, an interactive whiteboard is just a chalkboard. Interactive whiteboard tools work together to improve usability for teachers and pupils alike - from pens that allow multiple users to interact with the whiteboard simultaneously to remote tablets and slates, allowing pupils to influence the board from their desks.

By providing pupils with their own tablets, many of which can be operated at the same time, teachers can also encourage their independent learning and critical thinking, as well as get them accustomed to the technology at an early age.

Teachers retain ultimate control of all these educational tools however, and by encouraging class participation they are helping children to get more out of their education through the sort of technology they are used to in the modern world, like remote controls. Remote controlled whiteboards give teachers even more freedom in interacting with pupils all over the classroom, while still retaining control of what is displayed on the board.

This also means that whiteboards do not need to be cluttered with distracting toolbars and other input features, ensuring that the focus is entirely on the learning resources being displayed rather than the technology itself.

Interactive teaching tools make it easier than ever for teachers to plan and modify lessons on the go, with many downloadable teaching aids and core resources being easily accessible over the web from various sites. Portable tablets liberate teachers from the classroom by allowing them to work with the interactive content wherever they are.

Schools can even equip classrooms with interactive tools designed for specific subjects, such as chemistry. The days of awkward cell diagrams are over, now that interactive microscopes can be linked directly to the whiteboard to present live magnified views for the whole class to experience on the big screen.

By offering a simple and effective way to interact with a huge range of learning resources, interactive whiteboard tools are the key educational tools for 2010.

The Use of iPhones In Further Education

Thu, 31 Dec 2009 01:57:00 +0000

With the boom in technology and new gadgets being released practically every week, it was inevitable that educational institutions would take a slice of the action and entice their students with technology to adopt that mix of traditional and digital interactive teaching and learning methods. Several educational institutions have put across the digital test to their students allowing a sample of fresher’s to use the new iPhone and its applications as part of their learning at the institution. There are several things that students can engage in whilst using an iPhone as part of their busy life. Since most students will engage in part-time employment to support themselves financially through their student life, the idea seemed quite genius to allow lecturers to keep in contact with students who have such a busy life.There are a couple of universities that have actually trialled the use of such technology and have found them to be a learning and motivational tool both for students and lectures. For example, the University of Central Lancashire in Preston developed and offered their students a free iPhone application that allowed students to be fully capable of exploring the university campus and local amenities. The application had various services stored on it such as university and campus maps as well as information on local entertainment centres, restaurants and transport links. Also, when you get students coming from different parts of the world you find that you get stopped quite a lot for directions. This new application meant that students no longer had to stop lecturers or senior students for directions in and around the university campus. Abilene Christian University based in Texas completed its first year of running a pilot program where they gave 1000 freshman students the opportunity to select an iPhone or iPod Touch phone and use it for free for the duration of the study. This was seemingly one innovative way of stopping students from being distracted by their mobile phones during lecturers and classroom learning sessions as it allowed the integration of the institutions curriculum into the application so that students could leverage the use of their gadgets as part of their education. With the immense developments in technology and social media connectivity it was quite enjoyable and invigorating to see how such technology could revolutionise the learning experience using digital interactivity.

Online Tutoring Jobs: Becoming an Online Tutor

Mon, 07 Dec 2009 17:31:00 +0000

The internet, fast broadband and interactive technologies have revolutionized communications. The impact has been huge and education is one area that has reaped the benefits. On the one hand, students and learners of all ages have new access to knowledge in a wide variety of subjects and skills. On the other, the growth of online tutoring jobs has provided earning, as well as learning, opportunities for tens of thousands of online tutors. Online tutoring is attractive because of the flexibility it offers tutors. Online tutors can effectively write their own job description. Online tutoring jobs offer the scope for people with the skills and the dedication to help learners to create a rewarding career for themselves or simply to pass on their knowledge and passion for their subject. It’s an industry with almost as many niches as there are people to occupy them. Here are some of the ways that online tutors shape online tutoring jobs for themselves.Career Tutoring JobsFor people unwilling or unable to take up conventional teaching jobs, online tutoring can become a fully-fledged, full-time career. That career can be carved out according to the online tutor’s preferences: the tutor can specify his or her own hours and specialize in the subject and/or skills areas they most enjoy and are themselves most skilled in. Of course, unlike conventional jobs, the onus is on the self-employed online tutor to build up a client base. For those who wish to take on online tutoring jobs as a career, versatility will obviously be helpful. The ability to teach more than one subject will help; so will the ability to teach all ages and to adapt the tutoring services offered to learner’s needs. That might include simple homework help and supervision at one end of the spectrum and intensive coaching for SATs or GREs at the other. Specialty tutoring jobs It is also possible to build one’s career as an online tutor around a specialty. That could be a subject specialty, such as math, economics, or language tutoring online. Or it could be skills-oriented. Remedial help for students with learning difficulties is one area that offers opportunities for specialty tutoring online. Some online tutors with the requisite skills may choose to specialise in test prep, either in general, or to prepare students for specific tests. Part-time online tutoring jobs The flexibility that comes with online tutoring makes it ideal for people who only have a few hours a week to spare, but plenty to share. Although specialized tutoring jobs and tutoring for college graduates may require extensive qualifications and experience, online tutoring as a part-time option is taken up by many starting out in a career in education. Some online tutoring options certainly require educational experience but homework help and supervision may require an online tutor who (as well as subject competency) has the personality and attitude to help inspire young learners and keep them on the educational path. Online Tutoring in non-academic subjects and leisure areasSome online tutors take tutoring jobs primarily because they have a passion for their subject and want to promote it by helping others. Whatever your passion, you will find that there’s someone out there who shares that love of a subject or pastime. Online tutoring is a way to indulge your passion, popularise it and assist others all at the same time. The principal attributes that good online tutors possess include a love of the subject, detailed knowledge and the people skills to pass it on. For people with those attributes and qualities, online tutoring ca[...]



The Importance of Campus Life For College Students

Fri, 04 Dec 2009 17:42:00 +0000

College is a time for leaving the comfort and security of home and embarking on the journey to adulthood. Many universities and colleges require a student to live on campus at least during their freshman year. This is very beneficial to students as they will learn about campus life and the many benefits that come with living on campus.Living on campus allows one to meet and interact with a wide variety of people. People from all over the world will attend a quality college and university so you will be exposed to new cultures and learn so much from them. As well, you will make long lasting friends and have support during times when you may feel home sick. Living on campus helps ease any anxieties associated with the transition from home to college. Not only does living on campus give you easy and quick access to classes, but you will also be able to interact with people living in your dorm and take part in the social gatherings and parties.Living on campus will give you the ability to take part in many clubs and organizations. This can include organizations that focus on education, cultural diversity, gender issues, recreational activities, spiritual activities, political clubs, sports activities, and much more. Colleges and Universities also have various extra curricular activities such as working at the college newspaper, radio station, and more. The convenience of living on campus makes it more likely that you will participate in clubs and other organizations. As well, the convenience allows you to attend other facilities such as night time labs, night time classes, the library, and the fitness centre. The fitness centre is a great way to exercise, participate in recreational sports activities, and even take a swim. Most colleges also have various college sports team that one can try out for. It is also helpful to be near the college health centre, dining halls, and student information resources.If you are attending college on a tight budget, you will most likely want a part time job to ease your daily living expenses. Living on campus makes access to an on campus job much easier as you will be only minutes away from your job. You do not have to worry about driving to a job and days when there is bad weather. You will make that extra bit of cash while meeting and interacting new people.Recent studies have shown that students living on campus are more likely to complete their education program. The reason for this is that students living on campus feel more connected to the college and the people. They tend to invest more time in their classroom studies as well as campus life. There may seem to be a lot of benefits to living off campus when attending college, however, if you live on campus you will be exposed to new experiences and people which will make college life more fun and rewarding. Campus life is a unique experience that one should take full advantage of before they actually get out in the work world where they will have their whole lives to be fully independent.Author: A.Noton[...]
