Kroton antecipa plano de expansão

Kroton antecipa plano de expansão | Banco de Aulas | Scoop.it

Na manhã seguinte à reprovação da fusão com a Estácio pelo Conselho Administrativo de Defesa Econômica (Cade), em 28 de junho, a Kroton já apresentava aos seus 70 principais executivos o plano de expansão sem a companhia carioca. "Apresentamos nosso plano estratégico para cinco anos com uma série de oportunidades de crescimento. A reunião foi feita às nove da manhã, poucas horas após a sessão do Cade. Não deixamos um vácuo para a equipe ficar desmotivada", diz Rodrigo Galindo, presidente da Kroton.
Os projetos de expansão orgânica serão antecipados e as aquisições agora estão focadas em faculdades presenciais de médio e pequeno portes. Na educação básica, a meta da companhia, dona do sistema de ensino e colégio Pitágoras, é comprar ativos e também erguer escolas. Já no longo prazo, a ambição da Kroton é ser uma companhia com "modus operandi" tecnológico e não apenas uma empresa que oferta serviços e produtos digitais.
O executivo pontua ainda que, além do aumento de receita com essas iniciativas, a companhia tem em andamento três projetos que garantem a rentabilidade pelo menos até 2019. A previsão é que, neste ano, a receita feche em R$ 5,5 bilhões e a margem Ebitda fique em 44,1%.
No segmento de cursos presenciais, a Kroton está antecipando o pedido de abertura de 40 campi no Ministério da Educação (MEC) para 2017 e 2018. Se a fusão tivesse sido aprovada, a ideia fazer essas solicitações em 2018 e 2019. A Kroton já tem em andamento no MEC outras 56 solicitações e quatro campi foram inaugurados recentemente. No total, a empresa projeta adicionar 96 unidades presenciais nos próximos anos. A estrutura atual é de 114 campi. Se o plano der certo, a Kroton terá 210 unidades presenciais nos próximos anos. Além disso, haverá um aumento na quantidade de cursos ofertados por campus. Uma unidade completa tem 90 cursos disponíveis e vários deles ainda não têm esse total de graduações.
Em relação à aquisições, o interesse é por instituições de ensino presencial de pequeno e médio portes nas regiões Norte, Nordeste e Centro-Oeste. "Há 900 cidades no país com potencial para aquisição", diz Galindo. Hoje, a Kroton tem campi em 76 municípios.
Já no ensino a distância, a estratégia é crescer de forma orgânica. Na visão do executivo, a concorrência será maior daqui para frente, mas a empresa sai na frente devido à estrutura já montada nos últimos sete anos, desde a compra da Unopar. Neste período, foram feitos investimentos em plataforma tecnológica, metodologia pedagógica adaptada para cursos on-line e parceria com os donos de polos. A Kroton é líder absoluta em cursos on-line com 910 polos. Para efeitos de comparação, a Estácio tem 230 unidades de ensino a distância. Em maio, o MEC mudou as regras desse setor e liberou mais de 10 mil polos para faculdades com conceito acadêmico entre 3 e 5.
Com a sinalização do Cade de que as transações de faculdades devem ser analisadas com mais rigor e critérios distintos dos demais setores, a Kroton deve partir com força para educação básica. Desde 2015, a empresa demonstra interesse por esse segmento, que movimenta R$ 57 bilhões (sem incluir os cursos extracurriculares) no país. "O mercado de educação básica é maior do que o ensino superior, que fatura R$ 55 bilhões, e mais pulverizado. Há mais 20 mil escolas contra 2,3 mil faculdades", afirma Galindo. Essa empreitada será liderada por Mario Ghio, atual vice-presidente acadêmico da Kroton e ex-presidente da Somos Educação.
Entre os projetos, o que mais tem entusiasmado Galindo é a transformação da Kroton numa companhia tecnológica. O empresário diz que é um processo desafiador. "É uma forma de gestão mais rápida, em que as decisões são mais compartilhadas. Vamos ter que mudar o nosso mindset".

Please! No more Icebreakers: 5 Ways to Get a Group Connected Without Icebreakers

Please! No more Icebreakers: 5 Ways to Get a Group Connected Without Icebreakers | Banco de Aulas | Scoop.it

"I want to affirm that getting people connected at the beginning of a meeting is essential for creating an openness and willingness to challenge. Peter Block has influenced my thinking on this issue. He always says, “Connection before Content.” If a group is going to concentrate on a difficult issue, they need to learn who others are, the skills they bring, the experience they represent, and the values they hold. Stasser, who studies group performance, notes, “Group performance increases when everyone in a group is aware of each other member’s expertise.” But unfortunately, icebreakers, like those I’ve listed above, don’t accomplish that that goal.

"Happily there are alternatives to icebreakers that effectively build connections between members of a group. I will suggest five that I use, but first I want to share my rules of thumb for designing an activity that creates connection, because the rules of thumb are much more important than the specific activity you choose."

I am not a big fan of icebreakers. The article suggests to "connect" in a group, form community, activities have to be well-thought out. What is the gathering about? What does the group want to accomplish?
Paulette Dotson's curator insight, July 18, 2:29 PM
You must remember as a younger person those awful icebreakers at camp, school etc.  There are other options to help build connections in groups.

If You Want to Prepare Students for College, Stop With the Homework

If You Want to Prepare Students for College, Stop With the Homework | Banco de Aulas | Scoop.it
If you want to prepare students for college, stop with the homework. This might seem like a provocative opening sentence to some, but please read to the end to see what I mean. With growing interest around “no homework” policies in schools, there is a persistent debate about the subject. Some point to early studies showing a correlation between homework and performance in school. Notice that these are correlation studies, but they don’t necessarily indicate causation. In other words, there is not certainly that doing homework is actually what resulted in the increased academic performance. Others argue that homework is an important part of preparing students for the next level, especially college. Opponents often contend that there is more to life than school, and homework unnecessarily extends school well into the evening hours, leaving less and less room for family, other hobbies, down time, free play, self-directed learning, and much more.

Homework that does not mean anything besides completing worksheets is useless. I was careful what I assigned. Students had to be able to do it and it had to add to their learning.
Jillian Schaibly's curator insight, July 25, 9:32 PM
This article debates if homework helps prepare students or not. I find it interesting how they discussed the issues based on what goes on in the classroom and how homework should be given. As an administrator you should be aware of what the teachers are doing in their classes and what their homework policies are.

Evidence of "tipping points" turning climate change from gradual to rapid

Evidence of "tipping points" turning climate change from gradual to rapid | Banco de Aulas | Scoop.it
Anyone who has seen The Day After Tomorrow will be familiar with the concept of "tipping points" where slow and gradual changes in atmospheric CO2 levels can reach a point that triggers a sudden change in temperatures. While a lot of the aforementioned movie remains firmly in the realm of science fiction, a new study has found evidence of such tipping points occurring in the past, resulting in dramatic climate changes over a short period.

Ice core samples in Greenland have shown that during the last glacial period, temperatures periodically shot up by as much as 10° C (18° F) in a matter of decades, but it wasn't clear why that was the case. A study by researchers at the Alfred Wegener Institute and the University of Cardiff has shed some more light on this phenomena, known as Dansgaard-Oeschger events, using a computer model that simulates the relationship between the atmosphere, ocean currents and sea ice levels.

The team found that a high concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere was the likely suspect for these sudden warming events. The CO2 levels didn't have to rise quickly either: after a period of slow but constant growth, the climate can reach a crucial tipping point, setting off a chain reaction that results in temperature spikes.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, July 13, 1:36 PM
I found group activities had to be preceded by teaching and that feedback from the teacher was essential throughout. I applied my hockey coaching. If it was only one or two students, I would give one-on-one. If it was a large number of students, I would stop the class and revisit concepts. What did they understand? That was a central question. I asked what they understood. Quite often, students were unable to tell me what they did not know.
