6 Strategies to Help Online Students Overcome the Risk of Failure

6 Strategies to Help Online Students Overcome the Risk of Failure | 21st Century Graduate Literacies | Scoop.it
The retention rate for online schools is low and there are many reasons why students discontinue their degree program, from the cost per credit hour to school policies and the quality of the courses offered. Instructors have little control over many of those factors but what they can help with is the classroom environment that they are responsible for maintaining.

What Happens When Minority Kids Are Taught Not to Talk About Race

What Happens When Minority Kids Are Taught Not to Talk About Race | 21st Century Graduate Literacies | Scoop.it
Our results underscore the strength of color-blind norms in schools and highlight the need for future research to consider their impact on both majority and minority children’s social development. They also illuminate a fundamental challenge facing society: Issues of race continue to be a source of controversy and contention in American society, from education and business to policing and the law, yet it remains unclear how these issues can be resolved, much less articulated, if no one is willing to acknowledge race.

Study: 60 Minutes of Homework is the Perfect Amount | Big Think

Study: 60 Minutes of Homework is the Perfect Amount | Big Think | 21st Century Graduate Literacies | Scoop.it
“The data suggest that spending 60 minutes per day doing homework is a reasonable and effective time. Furthermore, the results indicate that both the quantity of homework and the frequency of assignment are related to academic results.”
Gino Fransman's insight:

I agree that homework certain or research activities be defined for purpose, aim, and positioning in the subject theme. I also encourage a measurable conclusion which reflects distance cvered towards achieving the purpose, as well as distance remaining, along with challenges and successes to consider going forward.

How to Write Better Content for Social Media

How to Write Better Content for Social Media | 21st Century Graduate Literacies | Scoop.it
Write for Each Medium You Use

Facebook: “When possible, don’t write more than five lines or 400 characters with spaces,” writes Vo. “Speak in a friendly and casual tone. Use image posts more often than link posts or text-only posts. Use formatting such as paragraph spacing and list format.”

Twitter: Short and sweet. “The best tweets are under 115 characters in length. Tweets are very news friendly, so headlines work well,” writes Vo. “Don’t forget to add a trending hashtag.”

LinkedIn: This network is for professionals. Write news briefs or internal information emails to your customers. “Think about how you would sell the article to a CEO,” writes Vo.

Instagram: Love the hashtags on Instagram. Your best bet: use 11 hashtags per Instagram post. “Don’t worry about the text so much as choosing the best hashtags,” write Vo.”
