5 Reasons Video Games Should Be More Widely Used in School

In an effort to curtail how much time young people spend playing video games, China has banned students from playing them during the school week and limits them to just one hour per day on Fridays, weekends, and holidays.

The new rule took effect Sept. 1, 2021.

From my standpoint as a video game designer and scholar who specializes in game-based learning, I don’t see a need to limit video game play among students during the school week. Instead, I see a need to expand it – and to do so during the regular school day.

Video games are one of the most popular mediums of our times. One estimate shows that by 2025, the global gaming market will amount to US$268.8 billion annually – significantly higher than the $178 billion it is in 2021.

The money spent on gaming does not just facilitate a virtual escape from the real world. Scholars such as James Paul Gee, a longtime literacy professor, have repeatedly shown that video games can be used to facilitate learning in the K-12 classroom. Education writer Greg Toppo reached the same conclusion in his critically acclaimed book, “The Game Believes in You: How Digital Play Can Make Our Kids Smarter.”

A long history

The use of video games in the classroom is nothing new. Many people who went to school in the 1970s through the 1990s may recall the iconic video game The Oregon Trail, which made its debut in a classroom in 1971.

In the game, players lead a group of settlers across the Midwest following in the footsteps of Lewis and Clark. The game came just before the video game industry was established with the 1972 release of the video game Pong, an electronic version of table tennis.

Even though educational video games have been used in classrooms for 50 years – and despite the fact that research shows educational games can be effective – they are not that common in classrooms today.

Many educational games have been released since the days of The Oregon Trail. Some of the most popular are: Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?,Math Blaster!, Zoombinis, iCivics, DragonBox Algebra and History Maker VR. Most games are for pre-K to elementary school students.

Here are five reasons why I think video games should be used in every classroom.

1. Video games can help students stay in STEM

In 2020, the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology found that the nation needs to create the STEM workforce of the future. One of the reasons students drop or switch out of science, technology, engineering, and math programs is because of the difficulty of introductory courses such as calculus.

The University of Oklahoma has developed a calculus game that can help students succeed in calculus. Research has shown student mastery of calculus increases when using a purposeful designed learning game, such as Variant: Limits – another calculus game that was developed at Texas A&M University.

2. They provide experiential learning

Teaching students 21st-century skills, such as creative problem solving, is important for the future workforce, according to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development. Games such as DragonBox Algebra, where students solve math problems in a fantasy environment, can help students master skills such as critical thinking.

In games such as Civilization, players can be a civic leader and direct the prosperity of nations. In ARTé: Mecenas, learners can become members of the Medici family and become patrons of the arts and successful bankers. Students learn through doing and can gain skills and knowledge through experiential learning that might not be gained in traditional classrooms.

3. Players learn from failure

Games are a natural way to allow students to fail in a safe way, learn from failures and try again until they succeed.

Some games, like Burnout Paradise make failure fun. In the game, players can crash their cars – and the more spectacular the crash, the higher the points. This allows players to essentially learn from their mistakes, correct them and try again.

The late video game theorist and author Jesper Juul wrote in his book, “The Art of Failure,” that losing in video games is part of what makes games so engaging. Failing in a game makes the player feel inadequate, yet the player can immediately redeem themselves and improve their skills.

4. Students stay engaged in content

The average time a student spends learning in a classroom is only 60% of the allocated class time. Extending the school day to give students more time for learning has been shown to be only marginally effective. A more effective way to maximize time for learning is through engaged time on task. When students are interested and care about a topic and it is relevant, they are curious and engaged. This provides a much better learning experience.

In the classroom, teachers can engage students. But when it comes to homework, educators have to rely on other ways to motivate students. One way is through games. Educational games can be designed to improve motivation and engagement, providing students with more engaged time on task.

5. Games make complex knowledge fun

Educational theories state that students cannot be given knowledge; they construct knowledge in their own minds. Learners build on previously learned concepts to construct higher-level and more complex knowledge to make it their own.

The periodic table of elements is challenging to learn and remember for many students. However, learning a complex three-dimensional matrix with 27,624 values is easily accomplished by middle school students playing the popular video game Pokémon. The essence of the game is figuring out how to combine the 17 different types of attack when battling other Pokémon. Each Pokémon has one or two types of attacks they can use. Players do not learn the different possible combinations by studying a large table with 27,624 entries, but by playing the game. Through playing the game, students gradually construct deeper knowledge of the game and develop core skills, such as literacy, how to compete with grace and sportsmanship, and abstract thinking.

Pokémon was not developed as an educational game, but its design principles – and those of other popular video games – could easily be used to design video games for classrooms that enhance their educational experience.The Conversation

Can Student Loans Be Cleared Through Bankruptcy? 4 Questions Answered

For decades, student loans have mostly been prohibited from being discharged through bankruptcy proceedings. That could change under the FRESH START through Bankruptcy Act. Here, public policy scholars Brent Evans and Matthew Patrick Shaw, both of Vanderbilt University, explain why student loan debt cannot usually be cleared through bankruptcy and how that might change if the proposed bill becomes law.

Why can’t people get rid of student loans through bankruptcy now?

Although not impossible, discharging student loans in bankruptcy is difficult. Due to a 1976 law, student loans are not treated during bankruptcy proceedings like other forms of debt, such as credit card debt or auto loans. This policy stems from a federal commission on bankruptcy laws, which heard testimony that claimed the easy discharge of educational loans in bankruptcy could undermine federal student loan programs. Congress was concerned that students might borrow thousands of dollars from the federal government, graduate, declare bankruptcy to have their student loans discharged, and never repay their educational debt.

In an extension of the Higher Education Act of 1965, Congress passed the 1976 law, which made borrowers wait five years after the first student loan payment was due before they could have the loan discharged through bankruptcy. Congress created an exception that allowed for discharge within that five-year period if the loan caused “undue hardship.”

Congress extended the five-year bankruptcy ban to seven years in 1990. Then Congress extended it to the borrower’s lifetime in 1998.

Currently, the “undue hardship” exemption is the only way to have student loans discharged in bankruptcy – that is a much higher threshold than many other common forms of debt. This higher threshold includes both federal student loans and, since 2005, most forms of private student loans.

Haven’t there been cases where people still got rid of their students’ loans through bankruptcy?

Absolutely. Though difficult, it is still possible to have student loans discharged through bankruptcy by meeting the undue hardship requirement. A 2011 study found that only 1 in 1,000 student loan borrowers who declared bankruptcy even tried to have their student loans discharged. However, those that did succeed at a rate of 40%.

Section 523 of the Bankruptcy Code does not set out a specific test to determine what qualifies as undue hardship. The federal courts are split on what the appropriate standard should be for discharging student loan debt. The Second Circuit case, Brunner v. New York State Higher Education Services Corporation, established three requirements that determine whether undue hardship applies.

First, the borrower must demonstrate that if forced to repay the student loans, they will be unable to meet a minimal standard of living based on income and bills.

Second, the borrower must be unable to repay for a “significant portion of the repayment period.”

Third, they must have made good-faith efforts to repay the student loan.

If a bankruptcy court agrees that a borrower meets these three requirements, the court can discharge the student loan debt.

But bankruptcy courts in the Eighth Circuit (in the Upper Midwest) — and occasionally courts in the First Circuit (in Puerto Rico and parts of New England) — reject Brunner and examine the “totality of the circumstances” instead.

For example, the 2003 case In re Long states that a borrower can meet the undue hardship requirement in a different way from Brunner. The borrower must establish that they cannot meet a minimum standard of living given financial resources, necessary living expenses, and other circumstances.

This test is considered less difficult to meet than Brunner because it does not require a borrower to establish “certainty of hopelessness” or “total incapacitation.”

Explain the proposed law to allow bankruptcy for student loans

If enacted, the bipartisan FRESH START through Bankruptcy Act would change the current law to remove the lifetime ban on student loan discharge in bankruptcy and replace it with a 10-year ban.

Under the proposed law, if borrowers can show that paying their student loans caused undue hardship during the first 10 years, then they can get it discharged after that 10-year period is over without having to prove that it would be an undue hardship from that point forward.

This change would only apply to federal student loans, not private student loans. Any discharge of private student loans, regardless of the repayment timeline, would still require proving undue hardship.

To help shoulder some of the financial cost to the federal government of this proposed change, the bill also includes an accountability measure for colleges and universities. The schools would have to reimburse the government for a portion (either 50%, 30%, or 20%) of the discharged student loan amount depending on the cohort default rate and a repayment rate of the institution at the time the first loan payment comes due.

Would bankruptcy become an attractive way to get rid of student loans?

Declaring bankruptcy is not an ideal option to deal with student loans because it comes with substantial immediate and long-term consequences. The immediate consequence is that bankruptcy can result in the sale of the property to pay off debts. The longer-term consequence is that, depending on the type, Chapter 7 or 13, a bankruptcy stays on credit reports for seven to 10 years. The substantial negative mark on credit reports means it will be more difficult to obtain a credit card, auto loan, and mortgage. When any form of credit is obtained, the interest rates are likely to be much higher with a bankruptcy on record.

Another solution to a large student loan debt is to enroll in an income-driven repayment plan, such as Revised Pay As You Earn. These plans limit the amount of the monthly payment on federal student loans to a percentage of your discretionary income, which is the difference between your income and 150% of the state poverty guideline, adjusted for family size.

After 20 years of repayment for undergraduate loans (only 10 years if the borrower is in a public service job), the remaining balance is forgiven. If the new bill becomes law, borrowers in income-driven repayment plans will have a choice. They can either pursue bankruptcy after 10 years and suffer the consequences, or continue paying through loan forgiveness.

Benefits of Studying in Canada and How to Apply

When people think about high-quality education, Canada often comes to mind. This is because Canada is currently in the top 10 for its education from kindergarten level to higher secondary levels. It’s currently also the most educated country in the world, with 57.9 percent of the population having some sort of tertiary education.

Continue reading to discover several benefits of studying in Canada and how to apply for a Canadian study permit.

Advantages of Studying in Canada

1. Affordable tuition 

Compared to many other international universities and colleges, Canada is relatively cheaper. Tuition at the top-level Canadian universities is actually around 16 to 38 percent cheaper than the best schools in the U.S.

2. Many research opportunities

An important component in Canadian post-secondary education is research. Both government and the industries support research, including telecommunications, medicine, agriculture, computer technology, and environmental science.

3. Internationally recognized

Any certificate, diploma, or degree is globally recognized and equivalent to those from the United States or other Commonwealth countries. For example, the University of Toronto, University of British Columbia, and McGill University feature in the top 50 engineering and technology institutes globally.

4. It can lead to becoming a permanent resident

International students in Canada who’ve graduated from a Designated Learning Institution (DLI) could qualify for the Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP), which allows post-graduates to obtain a Canadian open work visa. Working in Canada will give you an opportunity to apply for permanent residency through the Canadian Experience Class (CEC), which falls under the Express Entry system.

How to Apply for a Study Permit in Canada

Anyone who wants to study in Canada requires a study permit. The Canadian study visa is valid for the length of your program plus an extra 90 days. Those extra days could give you time to find a job and apply for a Canadian work visa.

To apply for a Canadian study permit, you’ll need the following documents:

  • an acceptance letter from a Designated Learning Institution (DLI);
  • a valid passport or travel document; and
  • proof you can finance yourself and any family members who go with you while in Canada.

In some cases, you may also need:

  • a letter of explanation;
  • a certificat d’acceptation du Québec (CAQ);
  • a custodian declaration, if you’re a minor; and
  • other documents you may need depending on your country.

Please note that a Designated Learning Institution (DLI) is a school that has been approved by the provincial or territorial government for international students.

The application can be done online or by mail. Generally, international students apply for a study permit before arriving in Canada. However, it can also be done when arriving at the port of entry in Canada. Overall, you can apply according to the option available to you.

Applying for your Canadian study permit online has several benefits, including no courier fees, the delivery is instant, and applications may be processed quicker. Additional documents that may be required from you can be submitted easily, and you get updates on the status of your application directly in your online account.

Receiving the study permit alone won’t allow you into the country. Therefore, a student visa will be given along with the permit, which ultimately allows you into the country.

University of Phoenix on the Intersection of Wellness and the Workplace

Professionals tend to spend the vast majority of their day-to-day activity at the workplace. For that reason, who we are as people can intertwine with what we do in our professional lives. When the lines between our personal lives and professional endeavors blur, we risk injuring our wellness.

Given the work-life imbalance that nearly all professionals either felt or witnessed over the past year as our homes doubled as workplaces for so many, it is worth considering how we can continue the wellness conversation to be the best version of ourselves while at work. 

The Vitality of Mental Health Care at the Workplace

Dr. Randy Phelps is a clinical psychologist and chief executive officer of Give an Hour, a national nonprofit founded in 2005 to give free mental health services to post-911 military members and veterans. Since its inception, Give an Hour has provided 340,000 hours of free mental health care to veterans, service members and their families.

More recently, Give an Hour broadened its focus to address mental health in the broader population. Phelps finds that “people do not treat their mental wellness or mental health the same way they treat their physical health,” which inspired Give an Hour’s collaboration with University of Phoenix. Through this alliance, the two organizations “provide free services to populations in need and also help people understand their emotional well-being and their mental health.”

Before the COVID-19 pandemic, one out of five Americans had a diagnosable mental disorder, amounting to 20 percent of the national population. Over one year since the pandemic began, Phelps points to the CDC’s findings that 40 percent of Americans “are dealing with anxiety or depression or substance misuse.” Considering the extended period of social isolation, compounded by extreme grief and loss, it is staggering to think about how much Americans have endured in their personal lives, let alone at the workplace.

With the world attempting to return to pre-pandemic routines, we need to consider how returning to the workplace will impact our mental health journey. Phelps knows from experience that “if you are having emotional issues, they’re going to show up in the workplace.” Because of how much time we spend at work, both employees and employers need to pay attention to any emotional changes they experience in themselves and those around them. While mental health and wellness may have once been a taboo to mention, there has never been a more critical time to remove the stigma in all aspects of our life, especially in our professional development.

Resiliency, Ownership and Mastering Your Mind

The Career Optimism Index™, facilitated by the University of Phoenix’s Career Institute™, serves as a comprehensive study of how American workers perceive their careers. This year’s Index found that 56 percent of working parents reported the pandemic negatively impacted their work-life balance. It is reasonable to assume that a work-life imbalance would provoke stress, which could jeopardize one’s confidence that things will get better. However, the Index also found that 78 percent of respondents felt hopeful about the future of their careers, and 70 percent said that hope got them through 2020. How? Resilience is the answer.

With extenuating circumstances controlling so many of our day-to-day activities throughout the pandemic, harnessing your resiliency and ownership can be tough. Fortunately, knowing how resiliency forms can help professionals maintain their professional optimism and inspire them to take ownership over their careers. Using resiliency as a tool to build professional ownership can help you master your mind and be the best version of yourself at the workplace. Kristin Griffin, vice president of Student Services at University of Phoenix Reviews, agrees with this approach. By understanding what resilience truly means, Griffin believes professionals can overcome any extenuating circumstances standing in the way of what they want.

We know why resilience matters, but what does resilience entail? The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services defines resilience as “the ability to withstand, adapt to, and recover from adversity and stress.” Resilience can become a factor in professional development by “adapting and being stronger after that stressor.” In return, acclimation and familiarity with discomfort inspire professionals to maintain ownership over their career journeys.

About University of Phoenix

Since opening its doors in 1976, University of Phoenix has maintained its commitment to breaking down barriers to higher education. The University fulfills this commitment through its flexible learning modules and online education programs, empowering non-traditional learners and adult students to earn an education on their chosen terms. University of Phoenix offers over 100 online programs that prepare students for over 300 professional occupations.

How Getting New Skills Helps to Achieve Success in Business

Source: Unsplash

The reasons why so many people strive to get new knowledge are multifold. Yet, the most common reason behind this is achieving new goals. It is a time-tested belief that investing your efforts in learning something new has far more benefits, especially if you are an entrepreneur.

Since acquiring new skills helps you stay ahead of the curve in business, and secures your career against dynamic business trends, you should consider keeping yourself up-to-date. So, let’s dive deeper into the benefits of how the learning process can improve your life.

5 Benefits of Getting New Skills for Success in Business

1.    It makes you more versatile

Learning makes you more adaptable to change. You will be more flexible in your career and workplace if you create a growth mindset and believe you can learn new things. You will never be stuck in your business life having the know-how of all the trending business skills in demand.

2.    It opens new doors for your career

Transitioning into different roles as a business person becomes a piece of cake if your skillset is broad and dynamic. Your company would love to have you onboard and offer your expertise in challenging business roles. Standing in the middle of the crossroads to success is what learning new skills allows you.

3.    It has many personal health benefits

A person of any age who actively pursues knowledge and experiences is engaged in lifelong learning. Other than the business advantages, lifelong learning has very positive effects on our health as well. Keeping your cerebral connections always ignited helps lower stress levels, delays the arrival of dementia, and keeps any psychological diseases at the bay.

4.    It helps kill work-life boredom

It is exhaustive to repeat the same tasks every single day for prolonged periods. Such a regime creates a rift in your work-life balance. Learning new information helps you kill that boredom and save yourself from the monotony. You also have a chance to add an interesting perspective to your work-life while making you even more talented.

5.    It prolongs your relevance in a business

Technological revolutions keep shaping up the ways we do business. Only if a person is well-equipped with skills to adapt to new technologies will he maintain long-term relevance in business. So, if you love what you do and want to keep doing it for the maximum possible time in your life, learning new skills is the only way to survive.

5 Fastest Ways of Getting New Skills

1.    Make Best Use of Pareto Principle

“Believe it or not, it is not only possible to accomplish more by doing less, it is mandatory” – Tim Ferris 

You may know of this principle as the 80-20 rule. The key is to learn the most critical aspects of skill first and later build on that. You have to try to identify 20% of work that fetches you 80% of the skill outcome. For example, if your goal is to start a blog, try to stick to the relevant portion of SEO knowledge, and build on that. Do not beat around the bush, and do not devote your time to learning the least relevant things.

2.    Reverse Engineer Skills to Learn Quicker

“The only way to win is to learn faster than anyone else.” – Eric Ries

Break down the skills you want to learn into tiny, doable chunks. It will make it easy for you to learn a particular business regularly. Here consistency is the key, and the primary benefit is that the overall process will weigh the least on your mind. You will learn a skill in the least amount of time with a minimum impact on your mind.

3.    Participate in a Relevant Group

“If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself” – Henry Ford

Whether online or offline, being a part of a group can add extra mileage in your pursuit of learning a new skill. The educational process alone can seem boring, and, eventually, weigh in on you. The team will make this process to be a walk to remember. Not only will you learn from others, but you will also be supported and encouraged to keep going.

4.    Use Punishment and Reward Strategy

“For every disciplined effort, there is a multiple reward.” – Jim Rohn

 The punishment does not mean to get lashed as they show in the movies. You can try to deprive yourself of your favorite foods until you learn a new skill successfully. Upon successfully learning a skill, rewarding yourself with anything that you love can go a long way. This strategy may not work for everyone, but you could try to motivate yourself this way.

5.    Seek Guidance from a Mentor

“A mentor is someone who allows you to see the hope inside yourself” – Oprah Winfrey

 If you feel stuck while learning a skill, a mentor can guide you to the end. Since that person is already equipped with the knowledge and expertise to help you learn a skill, your chances to succeed rise exponentially. When you want to master new skills, finding out what to avoid doing from an expert will help you learn faster. Having them guide you through the essentials is a big help.

Summing Up

At each step in your career, the newly learned skills will help you adapt to all the trendy workplace challenges that are bound to emerge with time.

Fortunately, there are so many ways to learn new skills. You can decide to utilize free resources available over the internet or take a paid course. Although both have their advantages, learning from a high-quality online course is practically more beneficial and will save you tons of time. However, it is up to you what will work best.

And never forget to have fun, make memories, and see it as a long-term goal. Also, refrain from making this skill learning quest an unhealthy obsession of yours. Remember the benefits and enjoy!

The Impact of COVID-19 on Learning

COVID-19 has undermined all domains of human lives by introducing unavoidable changes and limitations to the traditional ways of doing things. In this way, billions of people have found themselves locked out of the regular daily routines, with no alternatives other than adapting. The pandemic’s impact on education has also been pronounced, with students being locked at home, one on one with the new technology and self-paced learning. Some participants in the educational process found it easy to adapt, while others still experience the stress and uncertainty about the new education norms. We have conducted a study of how COVID-19 impacted education, and here is a summary of the significant findings.

Uncertainty

The worst about the COVID-19 outbreak and its related consequences for education is the ever-present feeling of uncertainty surrounding the educational schedules, norms, and goals. Upon the start of the pandemic, students were locked out of the traditional classroom studies, needing to adapt to online delivery of education quite quickly for the sake of not failing a grade. More than one year after the COVID-19 onset, there is still little clarity about when the pandemic will end, whether educational establishments will get back to normal functioning, how students will be tested, and what concessions will be made with respect to COVID-19. Therefore, the lingering uncertainty undermines students’ and educators’ confidence in their educational routines, giving no clear guidelines and no clear idea of the future of education.

Filling the Learning Gap

The abrupt nature of COVID-19 and the related quarantine measures have ruined students’ confidence in the study process. Many students have failed to organize their study routines at home, while others could not grasp the basic scientific concepts through online class delivery. Thus, the COVID-19-related changes in the educational routines have exacerbated the learning gap across different communities, leaving the struggling learners overboard and successful learners struggling to maintain stable academic performance.

Personalization

The most evident response to the surfacing student challenges amid the COVID-19 pandemic is to respond to student needs in a more personalized manner. Teachers working with their students online because of the pandemic restrictions have a unique chance of treating each student’s progress and problems more individually, though at the expense of greater time expenditures. However, this additional effort may pay off in a broader reform of mainstream education towards greater customization and individualization.

Building Confidence in Students

Another challenge that masses of students have been experiencing since the onset of COVID-19 is psychological; it relates to student confidence about their learning. In the traditional classroom, students tend to be much more confident about their material comprehension because they have immediate feedback and scaffolding from their teachers. While staying alone in their home settings and managing their learning independently, many students lost their academic confidence, thus experiencing deteriorating performance and new material comprehension. The problem exacerbates as new knowledge can’t be absorbed well in previous topics’ poor comprehension conditions. Thus, teachers need to look for more systemic approaches to instilling confidence in students to improve the quality of learning.

Greater Role of Parents in Education

Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, parents received an unexpectedly responsible role in the educational routines of their children. While needing to handle their work tasks from home, millions of families also faced the need to help their kids study, master the new technology, organize their study spaces, and get on track with new educational routines. It proved to be a tough challenge for many individuals, juggling their home, work, and childcare tasks within the scarce 24 hours and trying to stay calm amid the COVID-19 panic. However, research proves that many coped with that challenge, reconsidering their day routines, setting up optimal work and study schedules, and supporting kids in the educational transition.

Challenges with Digitization of Education

Digital tools had been in use for many years before COVID-19, but they were optional and supplementary. For many students, a rapid transfer to online education with no available alternatives was still stressful. Some of them had no technical resources, and others failed to come to grips with the innovative technology. Thus, closing the technological gap remains a pressing challenge for the post-COVID-19 educational community. This gap has become the equivalent of an achievement gap, with severe consequences for under-performing students. Many more students have started ordering papers from academic helpers like mechanical engineering assignment writing service, which suggests that learners find it increasingly challenging to perform their homework on their own.

Problems with Self-Paced Learning

Another challenge students worldwide need to overcome is the lack of self-organization and time management skills. A considerable percentage of students failed to organize their study schedules effectively. As a result, academic performance deteriorated seriously, even among high performers, which requires urgent attention on the part of educators. COVID-19 is far from over, so the pressing priority of educators is to teach students the essentials of self-paced learning so that they can take advantage of educational materials and routines even in the conditions of social isolation.

Widening Learning Gaps or New Opportunities?

As analysis suggests, COVID-19 has hurt the educational performance of millions of students, forcing learners and educators to adapt to new routines too quickly. Yet, with proper time management and technical resources, students can still succeed. The core priority for educators in the new educational reality is to design personalized support for underperformers, help students close the technological literacy or access gap, and prepare students psychologically for the new norm in education.

A Freshman’s Survival Guide: Top 8 Things to Keep in Mind

As soon as you get to college, many things may not go as you have planned. A roommate may be the most scandalous person on Earth, and your favorite subject may get tougher day after day. So, not to fall in despair when seeing your plans and expectations being ruined, you should keep some goals in mind. Here is a brief survival guide we have prepared for you not to fall prey to the crazy tempo of college life.

#1 Coordinate

Most first-year students coming to college are obsessed with studies. Of course, it is OK to want to receive the dream diploma, but don’t forget that studies are not the end – they are only a means of getting to the vital point of graduation and later successful employment. So, make sure to toss some social events and activities in between studies. This practice will help you avoid isolation and fixation on education, thus allowing you to live a whole, exciting college life.

#2 Delegate

Don’t try to figure out some stupid excuses for your homework lateness or failure to submit an assignment. Your professor has undoubtedly heard all the lame excuses students have figured out through the years, so yours will cause nothing but irritation. If you see that you can’t complete homework on time, it’s better to delegate the task to experts who do essays for money than to feel awkward at your next class.

#3 Be Open to Changes

Flexibility is everything once you get to college. Just keep in mind that things will never go as planned, and you’re sure to come across numerous challenges and surprises within your first weeks and months of studies. Don’t get stuck on the unexpected challenge; think of how to deal with it, change the circumstances if you can, or somehow adapt to those circumstances. In any situation that puzzles or upsets you, think of the larger goal – your diploma. It will help you manage the daily routines and minor challenges as just a couple of stepping stones to a higher goal.

#4 Exercise Moderation

We are all personalities with specific political, religious, ethical, and moral views. Students get too agitated about arguing these views in class, leading to more significant confrontation instead of persuasion. This may be explained by the fact that we all hold our views dear, and we are not ready to adopt an alternative viewpoint too quickly. So, such arguments usually lead to nothing but frustration and conflict. Therefore, our recommendation is to avoid discussing such sensitive subjects if you’re not ready to embrace other views respectfully.

#5 Don’t Forget About Your Body

Studies are good for your mind, but your body may feel abandoned if you spend hours sitting at the lectures and then at the library. So, don’t forget about all aspects of health, as your intellectual productivity depends directly on your physique. Schedule yoga classes or morning jogging sessions into your study schedule to feel more active and revived. Such physical activity breaks will give your brain additional energy, helping it to solve complex study problems much quicker.

#6 Be Respectful

Once you come to college, you’ll need some time to grasp the institution’s rules. Don’t try to change or challenge them; they’ve been there for decades before you. So, it’s vital to be alert to rules and cultural issues not to seem ignorant or rude. Some examples include silence rules at the library or in the dorm, respectful attitude to your professors, and respect for campus hours.

 #7 Focus on Your Goal

College life is exciting and vibrant in all senses. You’ll meet many new people, will join some interest clubs, will probably find a boyfriend/girlfriend, and will enjoy the fun and joy of study years between lectures and exams. But don’t immerse in the social activities too deeply as college is primarily about studies and getting a diploma. If you don’t submit assignments on time or fail a couple of exams, parties and romantic pastimes may end with a college expulsion. So, try to balance your social life, sports activities, part-time job, and whatever else you have on your plate with effective studies and regular class attendance. All these components make up a formula of ideal college life.

#8 Be Autonomous

The greatest disenchantment of first-year college students is the lack of control they have there. On the one hand, it is the sweet flavor of freedom that makes you happy; on the other hand, you need to exercise self-control and plan your schedule without the tight control of parents or teachers. Without self-management and scheduling skills, you may quickly fall behind all schedules, failing a course. So, get ready for the college years by honing your time management and organization skills – your primary survival kit in college.

College Is Not a Battlefield

As you can see, college routines may turn into an unpleasant surprise for some freshmen. But keep in mind that it’s not a battlefield. You’ll quickly adjust and start enjoying your college years if you’re open-minded, attentive, flexible, and organized. So, get ready by planning ahead and setting ambitious goals – it’s all doable.




3 Ways To Advance Your Career

There are times in your life when you know you are ready for more in your professional career. That more might come in the form of obtaining a degree in higher education, honing your second language skills, and the list goes on. In today’s world, there are a myriad of opportunities to improve your business acumen and marketability.

Further Your Education

Once you have been in your career field for a while, you will undoubtedly realize that it is time to reach for more. Pursuing another degree that enhances or complements your current one will serve you well. Adding a master’s makes you more marketable, and shows that you are ready for advancement in rank and responsibility. It opens up doors for other career opportunities as well as an increase in earning potential. Consider a career field such as an online Masters in Health Administration.

Earning an online MHA is convenient and can work seamlessly into your day-to-day routine. Going to school wherever you have access to a reliable wifi connection and a laptop is considerably more advantageous than carving out time to go to a brick-and-mortar campus. Online degrees are easier to work around your current career schedule. This format makes family obligations less complicated. Check in with your employer’s Human Resources department to see if they offer an education incentive as part of their hiring package.

Invest In A New Language

Knowing two languages with fluency increases your marketability for new roles – both in your current company and for future prospects. Having the ability to read, write, and converse with native or near-native proficiency allows you to work abroad or assist clients in other countries.

Learning a second language or even a third is proven to increase your mental acuity. People who study a language other than the one they first learned tend to receive exposure to more cultures and opportunities for change in work and advancement.

Seek Out A Mentor

Regardless of whether you are just starting on your career path or are a seasoned professional, finding a mentor can prove invaluable to your success. Having someone who has experience in the same career field as you and can offer expertise gleaned from their years of business achievements and missteps can help you avoid those same pitfalls. They can guide and help steer you towards growth and profitability.

A mentor can provide their services as a sounding board for business ideas and plans. They are someone that can make introductions into their circle of like-minded business professionals. Making occupational connections is vital to business continuity. When you need future services other than those your company provides, you will know who to reach out to.

No matter where you are on your path to business success, strive to do more and learn more. Achieving great things is an opportunity that you can attain through planning and some work on your part. You do not have to go it alone, however. Engage with like-minded individuals who will mentor you. Continue your education to open up a world of possibilities. Throughout your journey, remember to take care of yourself to take care of your future.




The Importance of Networking and How University of Phoenix Strives to Help Students Succeed in Their Careers

Many people find networking an uncomfortable activity, but the fact is that a healthy network of friends and professionals can help you find, and even achieve, promising career opportunities. While you can build a top-notch resume and market yourself online from the safety and comfort of your home, networking can still take people out of their comfort zones. Because of this, most individuals steer clear of trying to make these connections. Let’s take a closer look at how you can empower yourself for success with a positive approach to networking.

A Networking Blueprint

First, you must understand the goals of networking. This business method is not for people to meet each other and then go separate ways. Approach networking with the same mentality that you approach work and consider what you need to achieve the personal or professional results you want from each interaction. Do you require strategic, personal or operational networking? You should not network for the sake of networking. Instead, you should look to create connections for a specific reason such as finding a job or a mentor.

Start by connecting with people who you know personally and then branch out to those who have accomplished meaningful things in the fields or areas you are interested in. For example, you can start with a LinkedIn message to a friend asking them to connect you to someone in their network. Follow this up with personalized in-person or virtual interactions at a meetup or conference. This will allow you to speak and interact with more like-minded individuals who can provide the insights or guidance you seek.

Once you are regularly meeting new people and establishing connections, be mindful of where you are concentrating your efforts. There is no reason you must stick to networking with people who work in a single industry. Your next eureka moment or big break can come from a totally new industry or creative pursuit. You just have to be able to see the opportunity for what it is. Connections made today can transpire into meaningful advancements far into the future, so savor each connection and build on them.

The Importance of Networking

Networking is not just for beginners. No matter where you are in your career, you can benefit from the guidance, help or recommendations of others in your field. This can even include other successful professionals and contacts in other fields.

If you do not network, finding your next big break or continuing to succeed in your current role can be a bit harder. With the right networks, you can gain insight into the new directions that your industry is taking and learn how to stay relevant as needs evolve. Networking also makes it easier to identify the groups or individuals who can support you along the way. This is especially important when embarking on a new project or delving into a new line of work.

One of the differentiating factors between leaders and managers is a leader’s ability to determine what needs to be done and how to build the teams and processes to achieve shared goals. As you progress in your career and take on leadership roles with more responsibilities, you will require the assistance of more people in wider networks to succeed. Laying the foundations of collaboration and cooperation in the different areas of your work will help you and other stakeholders achieve success.

Networking Is Give and Take

Finally, don’t forget that networking goes both ways. You may seek the help or guidance from others, but you may also find your peers coming to you for mentorship or insight. Be prepared to offer a hand to those who may be trying to enter your industry or advance their career.
