Studying Before Test

First of all, do not just study a mere few days before an exam is announced. Study daily as if there is going to be a pop quiz. If you make it a point to review your notes daily and read in chapters in advance, the greater will your mind retain important facts that may be asked in a big exam.

There was a time when professors would just simply announce an exam and not saying anything more about it. But, in order to prepare properly for it, you need to ask him or her what to expect from the test. Obviously, you need to inquire what topics will the exam cover. You also need to ask if the exam will comprise of multiple choice, true or false, and essay questions, or a combination of these. Inquire also on how the test will be graded and what would be its percentage in your overall grade.

Once you have gotten this information from your professor, it is now time to hit the books. Choose a study place

Success in Online Learning

The easy availability of learning information such as free worksheets, education articles, easy to download presentations, etc has made online learning a hit among students as well as professionals. Missed course credits can be recovered via online learning but how to be a top scorer in a virtual classroom requires a little bit of planning and preparation. Here are some tips to help e-learning students be better in their learning:

Create a regular learning schedule – Online classrooms provides a private space of learning and maximum advantage can be taken of this by having a routine study plan. Have a calendar planner to help you keep track of test and assignment submission dates. Ensure that you take a look at the planner once each day so that your dates and study plan do not skip from your mind. Try and have a dedicated study place with everything you need so that your concentration is at fullest when you are studying. Having a specific study place brings in the much-needed peace for learning and accords importance to what you are

Teaching Robotics in Classroom

Sensory Learning

Robotics helps children learn with all of their senses, as its focus is on dynamic, hands-on development. It is proven that to activate a larger number of cognitive connections you need a multi-sensory approach. Robotics engages the students emotionally and physically, which are essential for active learning and superior long-term experimental recall.

Improved Socialization

People learn from each other through imitation and observation, which is a well-known fact. This line of thinking holds true even today. Teamwork and communication are decisive skills to prepare young people to take on the world outside the classroom. Robotics challenges help students improve their socialization skills, including growing listening skills, and consider and evaluate every other viewpoint.

Opportunities for Hands-On Innovation

Computers are programmed with code, which leave no room for creativity and innovative thinking. This can prove costly for students. We are preparing them to analyse, spell, and remember so many things, but the curriculum doesn’t give them enough opportunities to be creative, solve problems and come with new ideas and innovations. Robotics offers students

Get Through School Easy

Heck work did not help either, I finally almost began giving up socially just to keep up in school.

It all caught up to me one day, my grades seemed average and I pulled a nice all nighter for a final. And then I FAILED.

It was a horrible feeling, you know that feeling where you never want to talk or see anyone again? I had never really felt this way before, telling my parents who had helped get me to my school was the worst part. My friends all laughed and joked with me.

I decided I was sick of it and hit the books. The whole next semester I ignored almost everything just to study learn, and get the best in my subject.

I got a B in the class and was feeling pretty good about myself, until I walked by a man on my way out of class.

This kid was one of your average looking kids, not scrawny or nerdy. But definitely not some intimidating guy. He had a few buds around them and was telling them how he had aced his test.

This put a bit of

Some Strategies to Help Study Faster

Great strategy for studying is to take your notes and just completely rewrite them. This helps you to learn material in multiple ways since you are reading, writing, and constantly thinking about the material. This strategy works best for me when I have to study for tests that require learning many concepts, instead of memorization. If you just rewrite your notes a few times over, you will find that you learned a lot about the material you are rewriting, without even thinking about it.

For studying mathematics and science, the best strategy for me is to just spend as much time as possible doing the hardest problems of the material I’m studying. Learning math and science is usually just all about practice, and there doesn’t seem to be any substitute for spending time doing multiple problems. Spend as much time as you need on each problem until you fully understand it, or else you may have wasted your time even looking at it in the first place. Studying for math and science can be tedious unfortunately, but that’s just the nature of those subjects.

Studying really isn’t that much of a chore once you learn how

Useful Tricks Teach Children

  • Mathematics lessons

Youngsters will find this subject incredibly boring. Many teachers use colour to highlight answers or objects to show differences in numbers. Math bingo is a well-known game played in the classroom and it works well if there are many students. Make sure to offer a prize for the winner so that you keep their attention.

If you want to teach students multiplication you can either make them act as the numbers or you can create a game that requires them to shout the answer. You could write a sum on the board and whoever has the piece of paper with the correct answer on it has to get up and stick it to the board.

  • Science Lessons

Science is the subject where you can experiment and question why a certain thing happens in the world. Children like to see reactions. The best way to start this off is by doing the volcano reaction. Make your students construct an interesting volcano with trees and a realistic landscape. This will be fun for them to watch when they see the result of the experiment.

When it comes to lessons involving the physical reactions,

Info of Guide to Teaching Abroad

There are a number of countries that want Native English speakers and teachers to teach English as a Foreign Language in local state schools or private schools. This is also a great opportunity for teachers that are looking to live and work aboard looking to start a new life. The problem here is that salaries are often at the local rate and so if you have financial commitments back home it won’t be enough for you on a permanent basis. You also have to be careful about the local regulations which are often less enforced compared to western state education regulations. I have heard of teachers becoming very frustrated and de-motivated through what they perceive as essential systems and procedures that are just not in place. There is of course the culture difference. Unlike in an International School you will be working predominantly with local teachers and so you must adhere to their culture or you will find it very difficult to get along with your colleagues. At International schools by contrast the majority of teachers are likely to be expats and so you will be with a similar group of people you are in your own country.

Study and Learning Stress

The learning process itself does not cause stress if it is approached with a relaxed but focused mindset. A closed mind will experience all the learning stress in the world and still not learn much. The three main factors of learning are goals, mindsets and distractions.

Having proper goals is important because learning useless stuff is… well… useless. If you can’t separate wheat from chaff, you will be placing yourself under stress for no good reason. Define your goal clearly and make a sensible study plan.

The proper mindset is what determines whether studying will result in learning. The nastiest error people make is to think they already know something well, and they refuse to correct or improve that ‘knowledge’. If you are not ready to let go of old falsehoods, learning becomes a very difficult and very stressful process.

If your line of thought is constantly interrupted with distractions, losing and establishing focus again is mentally very demanding. Jumping from one state of mind to another against your will is a prime source of stress.

Home Study Courses

There are some people who know that they can, with a little studying, learn to make some extra money from the comfort of their own home. With computers, today, you can study from home but it would be preferable to study with a teacher who can mentor and guide you. This can be done through a video course, an eBook course or a live webinar once a week. If you have never done anymore on your computer, than occasionally surf the net using your favourite search engine or you send a few emails, you have to really ask yourself-what is the best place for me to start? Don’t fall for a lot of advertising hype telling you that it is easy to make thousands of dollars in the first few months.

If you want to learn to how to make money on the internet- how do you know what course to pick? I would suggest you look very carefully and review several courses to see if you can ascertain how good each one is. There are some very good courses on the internet marketing available. There are some very committed teachers who have written their own courses

Minimize Cheating With eLearning Software

Teachers and examiners today have to deal with more ingenious and more diverse cheating tactics than ever before. Some students still rely on traditional, time-proven methods like writing crib notes and concealing them on their person, sometimes even in intimate places in order to prevent the examiners from checking. Others have embraced the marvels of the Information Age and found new, wonderfully devious ways of cheating. A thread on social media Quora revealed some of the ingenious ways that students, in pursuit of the highest marks, use to cheat on exams. Invisible ink, hollowed out pens, writing answers on the inside of water bottle labels are some of the more crude ideas. Among the more sophisticated are printing the design of a water bottle label and replacing the original text with cribs, flesh colored earpieces which are practically invisible unless you’re very close and calculators with memory function. Besides all that, smart phones and watches with wireless internet access provide students with all the information they need to ace an exam.

One of the more extreme examples has been reported by The Telegraph, in May of 2016. Arthit Ourairat, rector of Rangsit university, Thailand announced that some

Play to Classrooms

The time when we embrace the need for children to be active not only in the playground but also in the educational setting has never been higher. There is a significant amount of research that supports the idea of experiential learning. So it begs the question: why not utilize playgrounds and preschool playground equipment to help teach the curriculum in active ways? Playgrounds can help make possible an interactive introduction of these classic children’s stories to young children. Play can be coupled with regular curriculum to aid learning and multiple literacy activities can be setup by teachers for students.

The literacy activities involve finding words, letters and images from the stories on the play equipment. Children must actively partake and look around the play area during these activities or perform events from different stories. This would in turn help to support literacy skills such as reading, speaking, listening, and comprehension in active, creative and fun ways on the school playground and in the classroom.

The simple matter of fact is that children are energetic and love movement, and since we’ve established that they learn better during play, it only helps further the cause for bringing play

Learned While Preparing for Exams

Time Management –

My schedule during exams started at 6 am, ran through the day till 10 pm. In between, I scheduled lots and lots of breaks and naps to ease my mind; so I could refresh myself and then concentrate better on the study material. This skill had been imparted in me only because of the fact that I had to study for exams.

Depending on our course-work, my entire schedule was planned a couple of days earlier because I feared the lack of enough time. Funnily enough, I had ample time for each course in the time period between each exam, which was the result of the schedule I’d planned.

Creativity –

I’m sure most of you have had that “holy shit!” idea while studying for an exam which is only two days away. You can’t get your mind off it, but you can’t afford to lose study time thinking about the idea.

Here’s what I did to deal with the creative surge AND to keep up with your study schedule – Allocate around 30 minutes to think about your idea. It could be anything. I’ve had ideas for novels, for

Good Study Habits

Good study habits include many different skills. Some of the skills are; self-discipline, time management, memorization, concentration, organization, and effort. The effect of having a great desire and passion to succeed cannot be under estimated.

Attitude matters. Having the right attitude for study is about the best study habit a student can have. Researchers have found that how one approaches something or a task matter almost as much as what the task or thing itself.

Having the right mindset is important in order to study well. There are times you just not in the right frame of mind to study. The best thing to do is just to avoid studying and have some relaxation. If your mind is occupied by other things, just clear your mind before returning to studying.

Here are some lists of good study habits:

Organizing your Time.
It is important to plan your study time. It is advisable to leave enough time for each of your subjects and more time for the more difficult subjects. It is advisable to comply with the study time requirement for the particular subject as stipulated by your school, college, or university.

Prioritizing your

Group Students Using Creative Movement

After looking back at some of my past lessons, I discovered that I had created a multitude of strategies to group students using creative movement. Here are three strategies you may want to try. Each activity is most appropriate for elementary and middle school students and is based on having 20 students in the room.

1. Body Part Treasure Hunt: Prepare 20 cards that instruct students to perform an action with a specific body part; however, a group 5 cards should reflect a different body part (i.e. a group of 5 cards for actions with arms, a group of 5 cards for actions with legs, etc.) Place the cards in a hat or bag and have students to pick a card. Then, ask students to move according to the instructions on the card they selected (i.e. swing your right arm, stomp your left leg, etc.). Finally, direct students to find others who are moving the same body part and to stand close by them. Four groups of 5 students will form as soon as each student finds someone moving the same body part!

2. Number Placement Grouping: Give students a card with a 4 place number

Problematic Kids

Teachers are mostly trapped in this kind of situation wherein one or a number of their learners have difficulty showing the proper behaviors expected of them. Might be they had not been properly tutored by their parents or adults around them, and now showing disrespect to their teachers, or simply taking their stubbornness to the next level.

Well, here are things to consider before having a fight with problematic kid/s in class:

1. Show you care. Yes, a kid’s trust will be yours once you have shown that you can be trusted. Never initiate any action that could make the situation worse. Try to understand. Listen. Know where they are coming from.Then, do necessary actions upon knowing where you could start your mission.

2. Make them feel loved. When kids feel insecurity because of their parents’ failure in nurturing them, teachers can–and should–do the needed attention. By not overdoing it, they could guide them towards self-confidence and all.

3. Let them understand the situation. Some kids have the ability to get the whole picture of their bad behaviors, only they are having a hard time admitting to themselves and to adults around them that they are making their own

Effective Study Skills

Mindset

Your mind is a powerful tool that can not only intake and record information, but it can also be used to positively affect your study habits. Because the mind is malleable, you have the ability to influence outcomes. Therefore, when studying, it is important to do so with a positive mindset rather than that of drudgery, dislike, and even anger. This is one of the study skills that will help you succeed. In 2007, Stanford’s Psychology Professor Carol Dweck conducted a study on how mindset affects learning. According to her study, students that had a positive approach towards learning and exhibited the motivation to do so were more successful at understanding and learning the material than their negative-minded counterparts. So, when you study for exams, it is vital that you approach the task positively, expand your mind to enjoy the material, and even find the motivation within yourself. When you do what you love, you only do it better. With that, it is easy to understand why mindset is one of the most effective study skills.

The Right Place

It’s understandable, with all of the technology and media around, it is oftentimes quite difficult

Positive Learning

You know how it goes. You worry about how late you’ve left it to start revising. You worry about what’s coming up on the exam. You worry about not being able to get to grips with the subject. You worry about letting your family and yourself down. And pretty soon, you will be berating yourself for not doing better. Think you don’t do it? Unless you are one of the lucky few who naturally praise themselves internally, all you have to do is listen to your thoughts for a while when you are studying. They are probably playing in the background without your even noticing.

‘I hate this; it’s so boring’, ‘I’ll never finish on time’,’ I can’t do this’, ‘I’m lost’, ‘Why didn’t I start working sooner’…choose your own phrase, we all do it.

The effects of negative thinking can be very destructive, especially when you need to work on your own, keep going on your own and stay disciplined and on target. Negative thoughts will produce negative emotions, like stress, depression, or anxiety, all of which will interfere with your ability to concentrate and your ability to persevere. They will even affect you physically,

Children Understand in Learning

Be patient parents

Patient is a key to success so if you want your children get success in every cases then they must be patient children, then if you want your children be patient and excel then you must be ready to be parents who are patient and good achievement for your children. You must be patient in assisting your children to learn. The good change in children is an achievement of parents. Do not let you show your impatience properties in front of them because indirectly they will imitate your behavior.

Learn one page per day

Learning without understanding will make memories lost quickly. If your children forget with what they have learned then try this method. Learn one page per day. Usually in learning, a child just reads one chapter to the end. It will waste the time because we can be sure their memories will quickly disappear. Studying one page is a lightweight effort but it takes patience. Teach your children to understand what’s contained in one page and do not move to other pages if your children do not understand. Repeat in a few days, sometimes in your leisure time try

All about Education Technology

Independent learning of students: Since the students use individual laptops and tablets, they can easily find the information they are interested in from the internet and understand it on their own. The cool thing is that the textbooks, web-based content, and electronic books that the students use are updated in real time.

This allows the students to get the current information. With the knowledge that the students get in the classroom, they can apply it to the outside world so that they can become more knowledgeable even out of the class setting.

It prepares the students for the future: We can all agree that the future of the world is in technology. When the students are suing the computers and tablets in the classroom, they are not only getting the academic knowledge, but also learning how to use the technological gadgets.

This allows the students to communicate better with the gadgets, have no problems fitting in with the others, and also don’t have problems finding jobs once they are out of school.

Makes the lessons fun: Unlike listening to the teacher’s monotonous voice, watching educational videos and other descriptions is more fun. The lessons
