Creating social phrasebooks with Phraseum | Classroom Help - English | Scoop.it

I spend a lot of time looking at different web-based tools and apps and thinking about if and how they can be used for learning. Sometimes it takes some thought and at other times it’s really obvious. With Phraseum it was instantly obvious that this was a really great tool for learning.

If you are trying to figure out the secret code for doing well in all interviews...the one ingredient that is important regardless of the interivewer, interview style, company culture, and position you are applying for is Y - O - U...You!

 

Knowing who you are, what strengths you have, how your skills add value to the position, team and company is critical.

 

Also, what is important for you to understand is your communication style.  Do you tend to ramble?  Do you tend to talk fast?  Do you tend to interrupt people when they are speaking?  Do you tend to undervalue your accomplishments?  Do you get stage fright? 

 

Knowing yourself is important, because you are in the driver's seat!  Figure out how to come across as the best version of you.  Practice, rehearse, do your homework so that you will walk away being proud that you did your very best.

 

Please read the article...hope you enjoy.

Knowing who you are, what strengths you have, how your skills add value to the position, team and company is critical.  You have to be able to pay attention,and flex your communication style during the interview to connect with your interviewer. 

 

Do you have a strong understanding of your communication style?  Do you tend to ramble?  Do you tend to talk fast?  Do you tend to interrupt people when they are speaking?  Or are you more conservative in your gestures, and speak with a quiet slower pace?  Do you tend to undervalue your accomplishments?  Do you get stage fright? 

 

Knowing yourself is important, because you are in the driver's seat!  Figure out how to come across as the best version of you.  Practice, rehearse, do your homework so that you will walk away being proud that you did your very best.

I couldn't agree more. As teachers, our role must change to one that enables, guides, personalises and embraces digital technology as a fundamental part of student learning. The most dangerous thing we can do to our students is to keep doing what our teachers and professors did to us:

I have always wondered why teachers, some not all, are hesitant about using mobile devices for the learning process. Some of the worry is that it's new and the student know more about the devices in general. This news report interviewed some teachers to see what they thought.

Twenty terrible reasons for lecturing

One reason for lecturers not responding to their everyday experience is, I believe, their ignorance of alternatives. If you can't imagine what else you might do than lecture, then it hardly matters what your everyday experience is telling you. Lecturing is taken for granted. Courses are designed around lecture topics. Knowledge is packaged in our heads in one-hour-lecture-sized chunks. Why is this?

Ruby Rennie Panter's curator insight, August 1, 2014 5:20 AM

Not about mobile learning, but even when we start to design an online course we tend to think in terms of lecture-type input first, even though the input may be some kind of online reading material, or (quite commonly) a video of a lecture. The ideas here are pertinent, therefore, in the preparation for syllabus design both for face to face and online.

Cindy Riley Klages's curator insight, August 9, 2014 11:06 AM

Cruise Line Class's curator insight, April 4, 2014 9:02 AM

Albert Einsten's quote:  "If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough,"  is so relevant when preparing for a successful interview.

 

You will know when you are ready preparing for the position and company you are applying for, when you are able to explain things clearly and concisely, and you don't sound rehearsed.

 

Clarity is power!  You should be clear on why you are the best candidate for the position, clear that you can do the job successfully, and clear on how your personal values are aligned with the company's values and culture.

 

Hope this quote helps...Until next time, PS - Live on Purpose!

Saying that it has always been this way, doesn’t count as a legitimate justification to why it should stay that way.

Cruise Line Class's curator insight, February 7, 2014 6:15 PM

If you are ever asked a question that you are not certain about the relevancy, your best bet it to make it relevant to the position.

 

For example if you were asked if you could be any animal what would you be, and the position is seeking a friendly person who interfaces with others...  Your response could correlate back to an animal that shared those characteristics. 

 

You could also choose the animal based on the job skills that are required.

 

I hope you enjoy the article.
