My thoughts:

I can relate to this because I know that my mom dislikes doing implants because of how difficult and time consuming they are. This would make dental implants for general dentists such as my mom much easier. It is amazing the new technology that people can come up with and this means that whenI become a dentist this technology will be available for me!

What You Need To Know About Self-Directed Learning

David's insight:

My thoughts:

This article talks about what you need to do in order to teach yourself and how to do it. It lists off the famous self-taughts, such as Leonardo Da Vinci, and talks about how this is relevant for you and for 2013. It talks about tips and tricks such as planning and media usage. This helps me because I believe that in the future the most important asset will be your creativity and mind.

ET Russell's curator insight, December 28, 2012 5:00 PM

I personally embarked on self-directed learning this year like mobiMOOC (Massive Open Online Courses) and webinars. I highly recommend it.

 

The challenges to overcome for me, where; time difference and finding the time amongst a full time job and family commitments.

How I overcame these...by ensuring the learning courses and topics were things I am passionate about.

Plus heaps of coffee.

College Applications Are Out and Most Decisions Are In

College Applications Are Out and Most Decisions Are In | Beginning your life after high school | Scoop.it

Chandler Buckingham, a student at Rogers High School in Rogers, Ark., has already heard decisions from three out of the four colleges to which she applied.

 

My thoughts: I like how motivated she was. She was very dedicated and strives to get a better score on the ACT. After many hours of studying, she took the test and got a 34 which was better than what she needed. That makes me think about how I should be studying for the SAT coming up. This will be my second time taking the SAT and I am hoping to get a better score at least by 50 points. I admire this girl's motivation.

My thoughts:

Going to college and applying is not what everyone thinks it is based on movies and television shows. It requires a lot of hardwork and effort. Even after you put all the work in it still takes forever to even hear back!This really shows how the college application proocess is in fact a process.

How Texting Is Changing Your Grammar

How Texting Is Changing Your Grammar | Beginning your life after high school | Scoop.it

Now that text talk is widely accepted as a legitimate form of communication, we are left wondering: Will text talk become our main form of communication in the future? Will the widespread use of text talk negatively impact the way we communicate? Or are we engaged in the creation of a colorful new language every time we text?

David's insight:

My thoughts:

This article talks about how texting and the new media age may not be as bad of a thing as it is hyped up to be. They have done studies that show the pros and cons. This article shows how although we are using shortcuts to write it is just a way of us adapting; yet people still continue to use proper grammar more often than not.

Will Your Next Computer Be In Your Car, On Your Face, On You Wrist Or In Your Ear? - Forbes | Beginning your life after high school | Scoop.it
It's a big question about where people want a computer. Based on a small sample, tilted towards designers and tech insiders, I think it's safe to say that your wrist is the next frontier.

Trends in College Pricing 2011 | The College Board

Trends in College Pricing 2011 | The College Board | Beginning your life after high school | Scoop.it

This document is available in PDF, the raw data is available in .xls, and a presentation can also be downloaded. For the fifth year in a row, tuition increases at public schools outpaced those at the privates. Large tuition increases in California had a warping effect on national statistics.

 

"Trends in College Pricing provides information on changes over time in undergraduate tuition and fees, room and board, and other estimated expenses related to attending colleges and universities. The report, which includes data through 2011-12 from the College Board's Annual Survey of Colleges, reveals the wide variation in prices charged by institutions of different types and in different parts of the country. Of particular importance is the focus on the net prices students actually pay after taking grant aid into consideration. Because of the important role of grant aid, these net prices have not followed the same sharp upward path as the published prices. Data on institutional revenues and expenditures and on changing enrollment patterns over time supplement the data on prices to provide a clearer picture of the circumstances of students and the institutions in which they study."


Via Society for College and University Planning (SCUP)
David's insight:

My thoughts:

This article shows data saying that the price you must pay to attend colleges is drastically increasing. The price for public institutes, believe it or not, is increasing more rapidly than that of private schools. I believe that this means that our government is not provding enough money towards education. This also means that it will not only be a struggle finding a college, but also paying for it.
