The Cost of Not Getting a College Degree

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • As millions of college students start school this fall and prospective students labor over college applications or consider attending college, it’s worth examining the cost of “not” obtaining or finishing a degree in higher education.
  • As a university instructor, and the only person in my immediate family to have completed college, I believe the costs of not having a degree can have lifelong implications.
  • Cost #2: Diminished options for career changes Another cost of not getting a college degree is decreased optionality to make a career change.
  • Cost #4: Decreasing health and happiness Those with a college degree generally will lead a more healthy and happy life as compared with those not possessing post-secondary credentials.
  • So for students on the fence about pursuing a post-secondary education, I encourage you to explore degree programs and schools for the right fit with your interests, and identify options to address college affordability.

3 Questions That Still Boggle Educators, Technologists and Researchers – News

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • Shelton’s team is drawing up plans, and will play a pivotal role in shaping that incentive infrastructure.Following Shelton’s talk, conference sessions centered around two major themes: the importance of human interaction and the efficacy of tech tools in learning environments.Will technology replace human engagement in student learning?As instruction becomes more…
  • Games, online instruction and other technologies implemented in the classroom address personalized learning and enhance student success.
  • Clearly, technology is important, but it can’t drive instruction or define student success.How effective are tech tools in student learning?Few participants offered a direct answer to this question.
  • It’s a problem that John Hattie, the Director of the Melbourne Educational Research Institute, has written about: according to his meta-analysis of efficacy studies, 95 percent of everything educators do has a positive influence on learning!Questions over the use and efficacy of technology in the classroom, and how quickly tools…
  • But educators, technologists and researchers agree that technology supports instruction and more value should be placed on how students learn—rather than how they perform on academic tests.

42 Fill-in-the-Blank Prompts For Students To Design Their Own Projects

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • 42 Fill-in-the-Blank Prompts For Students To Design Their Own Projects – – So often, we make learning more complicated than it has to be.
  • Those legitimate concerns aside, the following series of fill-in-the-blank prompts can be used by teachers to create lessons, students to create projects–or teachers to collaborate with students to create lessons–or projects.
  • I couple these prompts with other components–technology like apps or social media channels, texts from literary classics to postmodern non-fiction, creativity, or even local matters of citizenship.
  • Design and publish a compelling eBook your friends would actually want to read using a simple smartphone app.

STEAM in the Classroom Look-For List

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • When it comes to using STEAM in the classroom, how do you know what you should look for in outcomes for students, teachers and lessons?
  • Similar to arts integration, the best quality STEAM lessons intentionally connect 2 aligned standards.
  • Instead, the lesson should be actively teaching the arts standard through application of skills students have learned during dedicated arts times.
  • Finally, a true STEAM lesson requires assessing both the content and arts standards that were selected and taught.
  • So in a STEAM lesson, you’re looking for student growth in both content areas from the lesson.

  • Also, its good to have team members who will reach out to others to find interesting guest moderators who will spark conversation – – Guest moderators can draw more participants to your chats and keep the chat fresh with different topics and resources.
  • If you believe you or your guest moderator have a topic that can help others, create a chat around it.
  • Try to have 1-2 questions each chat where participants can share resources with each other.
  • Tip: Go back to the chat after it is over and create a Google Doc of the resources shared for specific questions.
  • Tip: Program tweets into Tweetdeck with your promo image and tag others who will retweet and/or regular participants in your chat.
