It is the primary and foremost responsibility of the school and the teachers to transmit an intense growth mindset in students.

You could also call it Brainology which would foster the growth mindset where in the teachers teach the students to observe the lectures, take notes, study, think innovatively, practice and be attentive always.

Beyond the traditional schooling and the conventional advice over the discipline, manners, scores, organizing, managing, friendship, sports, entertainment are few things which are usually as a teacher tend to impart to their students. In the current scenario, it needs to be much more concentrated over the soft skills and the techniques to handle the situations, the right and supportive manner for the overall academic excellence. This is all about the teachers addressing to the students on the day-1 of the academic year to help them successfully perform each day and mark their overall excellence.

Here we go,

The sociable approach… and this need not be emphasized as you being in years of experience would certainly give your best to introduce the system, the personal introduction, discipline and rather a great ice-breaking session. Apart from these, the first day to the aspiring students should be strong enough that keeps them tight with their targets and aspirations. Here go the recommendations that make the teacher provide better and build the best possible aims and aspirations in each of the students.

Keep them infused over the reminders of the mission which will get them back to watch out for their performance and keep them moving on the right path.

Discuss to set them a routine

High School Lesson

Among the many students, the mindset and the mental frame for even the bright student may lead them to distractions and deviations. They would certainly find it difficult to get back to the right mode of concentration. It would certainly be of much benefit to the student to set them back to the productive form. Suggest them to set the routines as good and smart it can be, like starting from the routine of sliding into the running shoes till the day draws to end. Once the schedules are fixed and catching up back to back will gain them much advantage over excellence in academics all through the year.

Educate to Plan the rewards

As students, it would be a constant requirement to keep looking for new additions to the personal gadgets, stationery, general books, novels and outdoor entertainment. Teach them to plan the reward for their prominence in the hard work, once they learn to relish the fruits of the real hard work, it becomes easy and throughout the year the workouts turn successful.

Teach to focus on high achievements

Students should be motivated to aim higher and it is true persuasion towards high goals bring it to reality. Teach them that no mountains are high being beyond reach and no distance are far that cannot be traveled. Let them aspire with a vision that is really high.

It is rather important to make the students the high aspirants of the year and imagine the complete class strength of yours performs extraordinarily well, would it not be a great go for the teacher as a performer.

Keep on track with all the motivational points right from the day one and every student would rather be grateful to have you as their teacher. No lessons can be fast practiced, no place can be reached swift all it takes is sincere efforts to make it happen.

How to become a best and outstanding student?

PenPencilEraser - outstanding student

Internationally, the standard phenomenon over the best students is that they are really advanced and know lots of Mathematics. Not sure, where it started but across the nations, the same point is considered. At most times, it tends to think whether the best students are ahead in knowledge and awareness or the scores decide the destiny.

I did mention about Maths but it is rather Science too which most East Asian countries pay attention. This has deliberated to the STEM talent and now progress to STEAM education which includes Arts along with Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.

Just as we come to the topic we released that the best person to evaluate the outstanding students are their teachers themselves as all the teachers are somehow exposed to all level of students and the different ability individuals. When encountered with the high school teacher at a metro in India, she was so clear to mention the outstanding student is the one who is advanced in all inclusive of the subjects, language, activity, discipline and they are much advanced compared to the others in same age group.

On keen observation over the toppers or the achievers, follow the pattern to see yourself transforming to the betterment.

Keep exploring more on the pieces of stuff you are proficient

Starting from scratch will not take you in the rocket speed but it is possible to have a good grasp of what you have already learned and had them in your gray cells. Now think of ways you could explore the set of skills and try to outsmart. You may create a platform outside your classroom to gain more knowledge and bring it forward to your class to exhibit. This will draw attention to your skills and would strengthen your confidence.

You are outstanding, challenge yourself in new ways

This is exactly something you should crave for and it requires in-depth knowledge and understanding of the subject. Keep yourself in pace with the ever-changing scenario and exploring a great many available resources you must build your mind sticking to challenge with the new and advanced challenges. This could be a debate session for a language enthusiast, a creative presentation for the designer and what more get yourself set into the challenges of professionals.

Get interested in high-level discussion and complexity

Nothing can be worked on lacking interest. It is important to set a high level of interest and engage with the advanced learners and seniors. It may be something which we call to dig in deep to outsmart, Exactly! You are to show up some fascinating interest level and keep moving by reviewing yourself in the truly engaged complexities.

Choose something to excel based on your interest

This philosophy most commonly applies to all the tasks we do and particularly for the advanced learning students they need to think in the most creative way and have to show up to the global challenges. The exploration and the incorporating the skills in the chosen field need to be worked on the consistent basis. Such an involvement and the motivation can be experienced only when the subject is based on the interest. Undeniably, the learner who is keenly interested would work it up at the advanced level and get the brains of the outstanding student and would be able to generate competitive ideas.

Never ever get exhausted

This should be one among the most key points to be realized. As most of the advanced learners would stretch themselves from the normal working day and they would extend the schedule and constantly engage themselves in practicing new things and to achieve the set targets. We need to work on consistency basis and never let the minds set on the pinnacle reach where in you would not be able to extend. So, without losing interest and acquisition of the knowledge should take place for which able planning need to be concentrated.

Dear enthusiastic student, you may be all set to demonstrate your extraordinary ability and prove to be an outstanding student. For some reason, you can perform it better with some guidance from your teachers or parents. Now, all that you have to do is owe to your mentor over your challenges and gain their assistance.

What your mentors can do for you?

You mentor can better identify your strengths and help you dive into the subject. They help you choose your choice and make you adapt to the challenges.

mentor

Your mentor can get you integrated to the technology providing you the bridge and help you with time to explore innovative and academic contents from the web world.

They have kept you associated with other advanced learner and can make you work together with them in projects, groups, and studies.

They can accelerate you to the toughest engagement and they are best to strategies the various learning skills in students.

Your mentors can help you in comparing with your peer groups and update you with your missing comparative skills. This update will create a benchmark and aids you in better performance.

You mentor can set the goals and track the progress. They exactly know the reaching spot and the timeline. They help you preparing and motivating to achieve the goals.

As the goals are tangible they can help you in accounting the progress and keeping you in line with the schedules to win the plan.

Exploring is one aspect and creativity is another, your mentors are best to teach you creatively and help you in lateral thinking.

Indeed, it is also possible if you wish to transform to achievement without the adult intervention if you a quick in grasping, able to access the additional resources, stay responsible in the group, distract all the distractions, exercising the leadership in yourself, bringing self-initiative and strengthening your ability and aptitude. Most importantly able to self-evaluate periodically.

 

Does Education today kill Creativity?

PenPencilEraser Schools and Creativity
Education, this is something that runs in each of our minds as a student, as a parent, as a teacher who is a parent and as a teacher. Why specifically mentioned as a teacher who is a parent deliberates that they are knotted at both ends and they have the complete insight of the expectations of the parents and the reality deliveries at schools.


Many prominent educationalist and writers mention clearly and have spoken much over the creativity in children and one such mention were that ‘children have extraordinary creativity and are born with the creative talents and over the education, they unlearn their creativity skills.’ It’s a sad thing and that is exactly what is happening in the current day education system.

Why at all the creativity is not treated the same as literacy education?

What are the common attributes among these?

How well can be taken up for the success in children?

Sometimes the reality is that that situations when answers are unknown the questions keeps mounting up and that’s exactly what I have been doing here.

Well, passionately let us consider creativity coming along with us as we grow up. Yes! It must as each of us are born creative and we grow killing it at every stage. The slaughterer here what I wish to call is the competition and the comparison. We all know parents who are not aware of the education, the concepts, the chapters and the knowledge which the school provides to their child, but even such parents are a double degree professionals in knowing the competition and studying the comparison.

PenPencilEraser Schools and education

All the creative dilution starts here and as parents expect their children to stand in the cut-throat competition the pressure mounts upon students and they are seen snatched away from their hobbies, sports, interest and the creativity. This over the period keeps them much away from the creative pieces of stuff and makes them run behind the unrealistic competition and the numeric scores. So, how are we going to grow up creativity, well let’s come to it?

Academics are important to make you brilliant and successful but not the degrees and scores!

In the recent times’ end of the academic year, one common activity syndrome is seen among the parents, what I call it is ‘Shopping for School’, am sure most of you would agree with me as the academic year draws to end the parents meet to plan and explore rather exploit with schools.

Schools are structured in the same way at all nations across the world. Beneath the schools are the principles governing them, and their ability to bring up the child successful and confident citizens rather leaders.

Importance of Creativity

This should be to the attention of parents and teachers, creativity is directly the so-called intelligence which can be experienced in the subjects they learn. Brilliance comes when the child can grasp the lessons taught, the lectures listened, the books read and able to reproduce the learned content during the exams and assessments. But what intelligence meant is that the blurred line between the learning and thinking. When the child learns the subject in different modes and when he must reproduce he thinks his ability to add his original ideas which are said to have more value and this outcome is much welcomed.

Thankfully, creativity is related to the academic excellence too and wonder not that those who enhance their creative capabilities with the excellence in human imagination are the genius the world celebrates. Hooking on to the mundane system losing energy over winning the competition may be the part of today education but how many of the students are encouraged to work on their best and the rest to concentrate on their passion, creativity, and experiment. When I mention experiment it calls for more thoughts.

Fear of experimenting kills creativity!

Another reason how the education kills creativity is that children of today fear to do mistakes while mistakes, when done, opens the creative door. They fear to be wrong and as they set their minds that to be wrong is not acceptable they condense their thinking capacity and initiate bring experimental as their mind thinks. This is because mistakes, when done, are subjected to humiliation and demotivation. So, as the child grows up without mistakes they lose the capacity for creativity. Somehow today’s education is killing the creative capacities in students.

PenPencilEraser Schools and experiment

Allowing them and appreciating their exploration and handling the mistakes in the positive manner which enable their creativity and only when being wrong they can come up with something original. This must be encouraged and set the a platform for exploration with motivation.

Do not discourage mistakes, set a motivation for exploration.

In the popular talk of Sir Ken Robinson clearly, indicates the education that kills the creativity and restoring it with complete awareness to the parents and teachers of this generation.

Creativity happens to bring happiness. Set the happiness in children and let the different perspective of education be thought of and bring light to the real education.

Schools, be realized!

Schools should consider the intelligence in students and encourage. Not just the exams and scores should determine the academic excellence. The competency should be measured on the creative part and educate the children of today with the different competency and free thinking ability makes the school responsible for their success and would be creating successful future leaders.

IoT is Powering up the schools!

 

penpencileraser-internet-of-things
Technology in education has geared up in the recent times and the hope for further development has much potential and it looks like no similarity to the conventional school methodology. The comparable advancements are vast and it is clear that Internet of Things is one of its kind providing revolutionary change in the way we live and think.
The amazing technology IoT just not connects and collaborates with people, processes, and devices there are much more to be experienced and  rely up on. The schools today need some kind of digital support to enhance the performance, security, analytical and much more which we are to discuss in this article.  The improvements in the key factors of the institution are well taken off and we would necessarily be advancing in the high-speed networking.

Another mind opener here is that technology would become a life skill for students and it will be integrated to the education. Things move technologically in schools every day. Classroom which were known as Smart Classroom has now expanded and been known as Small Schools. Most of the functions of the schools are integrated with the technology.

What is Smart School?

As we know that Internet of Things is the term referring to the machine to machine communication and obviously, this leads to the Big Data concepts. In the smart school the ample devices are built with the smart sensors and to name a few the sensors are the various entrees, exits, lights, locks, inventory, transport, belongings, etc.

To best accommodate this integrity in schools the school infrastructure must be much supportive and it needs to provide a highly reliable Wi-Fi network that which is scalable for all expansions. It is also vital to consider the security measures along with the privacy policy to protect the total data.

Why should Schools adhere to IoT?

The direct benefit of the students going to schools is for the knowledge, education and teaching. This when related to the adoptive curriculum would gain overall development both knowledge wise and soft skills. When incorporating this technology of IoT it is proven to have vast exposure and it provides the students the great opportunity to learn the systems well. It also inspires greater creativity paving way to innovation. The enter school functions are quick and experiences more reliability and ensures more concentration over the career growth of the students.

One primary reason is the enhanced results with better learning experience. Students are highly competitive and they live in a world of more learning and advanced exploration. The students’ performance is the key factor that potentially being out the level of learning. With the many technology advancement, the e-learning applications give more benefits and they are every focusing and goes with the interests of the school to teach on the subjects as the future demands.

Another reason is the improvement in the operational efficiency of the school overall. They can check and track both the people and the activities in a better and prompt manner. When there is a proper utilization of the teachers and the resources they would be justifying, the cost incurred in the technical transformation. The real-time analysis makes the best outcome to enjoy success and achievements.

Coming to the next important reason which is the safety and security. Every day monitoring manually is a tedious job and hence the smart schools which adhere to the better resource management makes it a point to record the attendance automatically, the belongings are secured with the RFID chip integration. The smart cards enable the attendance and the whereabouts of the individual.  The much safer campus and commute will bring in better peace of mind to the parents and the school as well.

A Rush of Internet of Things in School!

IoT is cropping in schools and it has been highly embedded over all the segments of the schools. The students are seen connected with their belonging like the back pack, lunch pack along with the auto check of the temperature or the freshness. Wireless devices found every corner which makes you feel the smart school, giving better leverage to the mobile and personalized learning, getting collaborated with the parents anytime, initiating discussions with the overseas students to compare and explore the subjects with them.
