Gazette » 10 Reasons to Work Hard in School

Gazette » 10 Reasons to Work Hard in School | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Think about the organized activities in which children participate.  At band practice, for example, musicians understand why they need to rehearse. They know that practicing is important because at a later date the group will perform its songs to a live audience. The connection between today’s preparation and tomorrow’s performance is straightforward. Young actors in a drama club are also aware of this relationship. So are players on a Little League baseball team. The leaders of these activities generally do not need to spend much time explaining the purpose of practicing because kids can figure it out for themselves.

  1. Learning adds quality to our lives.
  2. Working hard prepares kids for higher levels of education
  3. Working hard in school helps children develop lasting habits
  4. Working hard can help children find their passion
  5. Doing well in school helps people establish themselves as individuals.
  6. Education helps us get the jobs we want.
  7. Doing well in school maximizes our options in life.
  8. Working hard in school empowers us to become more effective consumers.
  9. Education empowers us to make a difference in the world.
  10. Education empowers people to participate fully in civic life.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, Today, 11:07 AM

We often associate genius with being smart and it is, however it is smart in a different way. A synonym for genius is gift and it is about the spirit of a person and their natural ability. I read the article in that light. Each person was dedicated to something which came natural to them. Perhaps part of being a genius is knowing what we are good at.

En la actualidad las impresoras 3D constituyen una curiosidad tecnológica y a menudo son exhibidas en muestras científicas y jornadas técnicas casi como fenómenos de circo. Los visitantes solemos quedarnos con la boca abierta viendo cómo el ingenio va depositando pausadamente las distintas capas del material que da forma a la pieza. Pero lafabricación digital, concepto amplio en el que se engloban las tecnologías de impresión en 3D, es unacorriente disruptiva que está cambiando la industria tal y como la conocemos, no solamente desde la perspectiva técnica, sino también desde el campo de los modelos de negocio empresariales.

Las implicaciones de la digitalización de la producción industrial han sido analizadas en la publicación Fabricación digital: nuevos modelos de negocio y nuevas oportunidades para los emprendedores, que recientemente ha lanzado Fundación Telefónica.
