2019: WHAT WILL THE NEW YEAR COME OF MY BLOG

Image result for 2019

“Narrowing down the topics.”


what’s to come

The end of 2018 is just a week away. And I will be planning my blog for next year 2019. And for the coming year, I will be narrowing down the blog to 6 topics not 12 spanning the year. And these 6 topics will be of the most popular from my current year. So instead of writing a post from 1 topic for the month, I will be writing posts for 1 topic every two months. And this is the change, the metamorphosis of my blog that will eventually narrow down to fewer topics. As of now, there are two topics in competition with each other to see which one will make the cut. I will also provide more video content as well. Feel free to drop a comment about the topics you liked. Continue to like, follow, and share my work. SEE YOU  IN 2019!!!

THE KNOW: HOW UNDERSTANDING YOUR PATH TO SUCCESS COULD BE LEARNED

blackboard, business, chalkboard

“I made because I have the it factor.”


cognition

We all have a way in which we process information in our minds, But is there are more to putting yourself in the know, and educating your way to success? Because no matter how much you give people knowledge, they have to be able to harness the information and make it work for them. And the making it work for the is where life becomes complicated. Because there is no road map to figure out how to be successful.

the learning environment

Now, when you are in school and trying to navigate through this academic space, how do you maintain good grades. Well, you have to train yourself to remember the lesson plan. But it’s not enough to remember, how do you use it is what’s important. How do you harness what you learned to build a life for yourself? That is something only you can figure out.

where does learning come from

Why are some people able to learn with ease and others struggle? Who is selected through what process to attain the knowledge needed for growth in their lives. And that is by way of natural selection process. Reality is that there is no real means of knowing who possesses what abilities. Not until they step into society. It may be a trait, or it may be based out of need and your own personal growth.

REMOTE LEARNING: HOW WOULD PARENTS FEEL ABOUT THEIR CHILDREN LEARNING FROM HOME

Photo of Woman Using Her Laptop

“Far too impersonal.”


at home

Parents in the past who home-schooled their children were seen as revolutionaries. But in today’s society, especially with the school shooting across the country, maybe more parents may want to consider home-schooling. But the traditional home-schooling is different than what I am thinking about. I am referring to a more remote classroom where the teacher is not physically at the school. More so, the teacher is at home, and the kid is in front of their computer at home. They communicate via web cam, and it would create a more digital means of learning. With no books and a paperless form of learning.

access to technology

When trying to create something this remote, you will need to make sure students are able to bring themselves near a computer. And not everyone has a computer, and those that do, don’t have reliable methods of learning in this new capacity. So what would happen is that those kids could see themselves, at no fault of their own, lag behind even worse than in the classroom. Because now you’re talking reliable internet access. Where even some of your best students could be negatively effected by such a move in education. Which leads into the next paragraph.

communication breakdown

As for the communication, there are a few issues that occur from the remote learning. When inside of a classroom, you are able to look into the students eyes and connect to them whereas you cant’s through a computer. But the main reason kids come to school, is where they start to develop means conflict resolution and dealing with others different themselves. You also have communication issues via the technology that will make it impossible for the teacher to do their jobs. So as for now, we will stick to the more traditional method. And that is sending your children off to school each and everyday.

DIGITAL IN THE CLASSROOM: HOW DO WE INTRODUCE IT INTO THE CLASS

Rear View of Man Working in Office

“How do we make use of all the opportunities?”


digital learning

I have spoken about this subject in short in previous posts. And that is the introduction of digital technologies into the classrooms for learning. We have already a plethora of computers that were seen as something revolutionary in the previous decades. But now, a laptop or desktop is outdated. We are now moving into a space of AR (augmented reality) and VR (virtual reality). Eye wear and full headsets that will incorporate a whole new way pf learning. A new way which will put the student into a gaming world literally. How will effect the current way of learning and teaching? Because as I also said before the credentials for educators will increase as well.

initials users

As with the introduction of any form of technology, the beginning will be so much fun. But then after a while it becomes the norm. The initial users for schools that are able to afford it will show an increase in grades. It will be this new impressive way to get students involved and engaged. Now, whichever schools are able to use these will most likely not be public schools unless someone donates to these institutions. But hopefully the technology that could increase leaning find its way throughout schools all over America.

all about the money

Like I said before, when schools are able to bring together the finances for the new technology that will aid in a school’s overall performance, then you’ll see a slight jump of improvement then a capping off point. But unless you have some really wealthy alumni that give, you will not see too many public schools with the capabilities for learning that is in the future to come. Someone I know was developing a headset for schools. But relative to the amount of schools out there, it’s not enough money yet to finance. I think technology is easier to bring cost down today when the technology is perfected. Bu that is the downside of bringing to life anything great. Money is not everything, but it’s very important.

SELF GENERATING: DO YOU REALLY NEED A COLLEGE DEGREE ANYMORE

Steel Gate of Brown Brick Building

“Do it yourself.”


should i go

Throughout history in America, going to college after high school has been the choice for so many taking the path toward their career. And if you’re becoming a doctor or attorney, college is still the path to go. But what about other careers? Do you really need to attend college for four years to be an executive assistant? What about all those executive assistants in the past who performed their jobs well? They didn’t have half the education people do now, and performed their jobs better. So would we really send our children to college?

opportunities

What would you really miss out on by not going to college? What, the parties; what the girls/boys? No, no, there other aspects of college that you miss and that is the connections to people who are on campus that you otherwise don’t meet not in school. Meaning, young people who join fraternities or sororities, they have connections all over he country. And people in their social group have always been known to lend a hand a aid in employment for their brothers and sisters. Now, the average person does not pledge, so what about them? Well, there are opportunities to get close to your professors who may aid in connecting with people they know in your career pursuits. But should all these connections cost you as much as they do?

too too much money

We say the connections you make in college. But let’s be honest, the majority of people, no matter how many connections are going to have this glorious life. The majority of people are going to fall under a normal category of employed citizens in society. And they will have this mountain of debt following them everywhere they go. The schools below are the top five most expensive schools in America. Article can be read HERE!

RAISE YOUR HAND: HOW TO GET KIDS TO VOLUNTEER IN SCHOOL

Chairs on Table

“Give them the confidence.”


hands raised

When I was in school as a young child, I used to always participate in class. For some reason school has always been my comfort zone. It’s where I was the most confident in life outside of working a job. But a lot of kids are not as confident in class. Some sit back and wait for the teacher to call on them. And when the teacher makes the decision to call on them in class, everyone else sighs in relief that it’s not them. How do we get kids more engaged in school?

activities

If you want them to get involved in the classroom, put them in activities outside the class. Maybe even in sports or music where they are around classmates. This will make the kids in class with them familiar. It won’t be as scary to volunteer in class because you’re around people you know from outside of school. Also put them around kids they don’t know as well so they can deal with society early on.

excelling helps a lot

Getting good grades in school really makes you want to stay involved. I always received good grades, so it never bothered me to participate in class. But for the kids who always had below C’s in school, they were petrified to be called on in class. There was always this fear, who could see it. Even if they tried hiding it, you could see they were nervous. And the nervousness always translated into them hurting what might have been a good project. But inevitably, scared in the classroom could follow you into your career pursuits.

CHURCH AND STATE: WHERE DOES RELIGION BELONG IN SCHOOL

bible, black background, book

“To or not to learn.”


god in school

God in schools has been a debate for years. And the obvious reason why there is no religion in schools is because we not only all have different belief systems. But we all have our own interpretation for what God means. And when sending our children to school, we may believe the same religion that is being taught yet still do not want the schools pushing their own beliefs onto our children. So we have worked to have a separation of church and state. But are there other reasons for why we have religion removed from schools?

lifestyle gets in the way

We all have lives that may conflict with our religious beliefs. And for that reason, you cannot teach religion in schools. The instructors just like the parents of the kids have lives. And to come to school and teach God and religion, yet have their own lives that cause conflicts with religion can create an unstable environment. The bible was written during a time period totally different than the one today. So living by the book becomes virtually impossible in the world today.

whose book?

Having so many groups living in an environment can create a problem when trying to figure out what religion to practice. But even if we look at just Christianity, which is the dominant religion of America, what sect shall be practiced? Will it be Baptist, Agnostic, Pentecostal, Catholicism, Lutheranism, or Jehovah Witness viewpoint? And they all have different takes in Christianity themselves. And after them you have Islam and Judaism, who have their own sects under these headings, not to mention Atheist.. So trying to place religion in schools would cause problems, even among Christians. So for now, let’s keep the religious talks for families to deal with not schools.
