Degrees don’t matter anymore, skills do

Degrees don’t matter anymore, skills do | education technology | Scoop.it
More and more, employers are going to want to see some proof that a potential employee has actually gained particular skills. So certificates that can credibly attest to someone’s ability to write computer code, write a decent essay, use a spreadsheet, or give a persuasive speech are going to be worth more and more. And any training program that takes the need to maintain its own credibility seriously can help students gain those skills and certify them for employers in a way that bypasses the existing educational establishment.

Danielle M. Villegas's curator insight, July 30, 2014 11:35 AM

This is not limited to moms in technical communication, but all moms that work. I don't regret that I took time off to be a SAHM (stay-at-home-mom) for a few years during my son's early years, because if I hadn't, I wouldn't have figured out his developmental issues and gotten help properly. It was because I was at home at the time that he's doing well today. At the same time, family has always come first. I sacrificed growth in my career during those SAHM years, but it was worth it to see my child thrive.  

 

The author of this article makes excellent points that I completely agree with. Parents--both men and women--shouldn't be penalized for being a parent. Women get penalized more severely because more often they are the primary caretakers of children, although I know there are exceptions. For the most part, a lot of the parenting responsibilities fall on the moms. Over the years, fathers are taking on more responsibilities than before, but there are many families in which the responsibilities are not divided equally (my own included, but I've had my husband step up more over the years). Somehow in a country that likes to try to promote family values, we've lost that in favor of corporate dominance. It goes back to identity--are you a person who works at your job, or are you a person who IS your job? When I work for a company, I can be loyal to that company and its goals, but not at the expense of my family to get ahead.  The author's last paragraph is my own credo. And it really should be the credo of ALL parents, not just moms.

How to Incorporate Popular Video Games into a Lesson Plan

How to Incorporate Popular Video Games into a Lesson Plan | education technology | Scoop.it

Educators are always looking for new ways to make learning fun for their students. For that reason, many teachers have begun incorporating popular video games into their classroom curriculum. Because video games require problem-solving and strategy, it is only natural to assume they would fit nicely in the modern day classroom. Nearly 51 million students in kindergarten through 12th grade play video games, so their inclusion into the educational process makes perfect sense.

How To Create QR Codes To Use In Your Classroom ~ Mrs. Wideen's Blog

How To Create QR Codes To Use In Your Classroom ~ Mrs. Wideen's Blog | education technology | Scoop.it

"A QR Code is a type of barcode that is readable by dedicated QRbarcode readers and camera telephones. The code consists of black modules arranged in a square pattern on a white background. The information encoded may be text you want students to read, websites, or video.'

 

A very quick way to incorporate QR codes in your classroom is to simply create a QR code so students can get to a website quickly and efficiently.  How many times have you written a website on the board for your students to go to and you get 10 students saying that they can’t get to the website because they have typed it incorrectly?

The 6 types of Questions your Students Need to Know about | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | education technology | Scoop.it

Learning is all about asking questions and finding answers to them. An inquisitive mind is one that goes beyond the status quo and probes deep below surface meanings. To foster such kind of  thinking inside our classroom requires some hard work and a serious investment in time and efforts. We, as teachers and educators, need to prepare the right environment where inquisitive minds can nourish and grow. We need to water this environment with a culture of asking questions.
