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, making you too tired to maintain the high level of work you need, especially if you are under pressure.

The solution is hard and easy. Hard because you have probably made a habit of negative thinking and habits take practice and time and effort to change. Easy, because what you actually have to do is not difficult.

Think of a friend of yours who is studying, and imagine yourself sitting beside them cheering them on. It wouldn’t be hard to do. The phrases would come easily to you.

‘You are doing great’, ‘Keep it up, look how much you’ve done already’, ‘I have every confidence in you’, ‘You can do it’, ‘Just a bit more’…You get the idea.

And it doesn’t really matter if you doubt them a little, or if you worry about how much they have to do, you would still realise that they need to be encouraged as much as possible while they work. Therefore doing the same for yourself and finding the right words to say is just as easy. So remember:

  • Stay positive, even if you don’t feel it; use positive phrases in your internal self talk. Don’t worry if you don’t feel it at first, just say the words and stop the negative thoughts.
  • Concentrate on any good you can find. On how much you’ve covered already. The fact that you are still at it even though it’s difficult, if the going is slow. The fact that you’ve even got yourself to sit down when the temptation to do something else was so great.
  • When you catch yourself daydreaming about failure or getting the one question you didn’t want, replace it with good dreams. Imagine everything going smoothly, picture it in your mind, play through every detail of yourself working efficiently throughout the exam, calm and collected, answering everything you need to answer, receiving your certificate of honours…enjoy the feelings it arouses, and then get back to work.

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 to ask what you have taught. If the results are good then you can increase the number of pages in two, three, and four and so on.

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 on the computers are more interactive, and this motivates the students to learn. The teachers can also change the style of the lessons using computers, tablets, and projectors.

Easy to manage students: This is important in schools with many students. The teachers can easily see the students who have completed their courses and quizzes. Since everything is electronically generated at the touch of a button, the teachers can easily monitor the progress of the students by simply checking what they have performed throughout a particular period.

New and better teaching methods: Unlike before when the only way that the teachers could teach was to stand in front of the class with chalk and dust board, now the professors can come up with better and exciting teaching methods. For example, they can use blogs, social media, and even podcasts to teach.
