    LGR – The Sims 4 Discover University Review

    We all knew this was coming. Even if you’ve ignored the rumors and leaks, a university expansion is all but guaranteed when it comes to Sims packs, alongside seasons, pets, vacations, and supernatural weirdness. And with those out of the way, we now have The Sims 4 Discover University: the eighth full expansion pack to The Sims 4. And despite having fun with previous incarnations, I wasn’t sure how I felt about this one at first. Not only because it’s The Sims 4 and I have, shall we say, mixed feelings. But also because it’s been twelve years since I was in college myself, and wow is that an unsettling…

    Vicki Phillips: The Technology Wave Hits Education

    I think we’re just beginning to realize the power of technology in education actually. And isn’t it interesting that education’s sort of the last profession that technology has transformed. And I think a lot of that is because we can’t just plop down, you know, new tools into an old system and expect that to work. So a lot of where we’re seeing the Internet be the most powerful is in these blended school models where schools are starting to flip their classrooms and use the Internet and technology enabled tools. Whether that’s videos of experts talking to students or whether it’s students getting online and doing assignments in a…

    Engaging Students With Learning Differences Early On

    bjbjLULU MARGARET WARNER: Now: how one school has succeeded in reducing the odds that a student with learning disabilities may drop out. Past studies have found that these students drop out at more than twice the rate of their classmates. NewsHour health correspondent Betty Ann Bowser reports on what can be done in the classroom to prevent that. It’s for our series the American Graduate Project. BETTY ANN BOWSER: On a recent Friday morning at the Henderson Inclusion Elementary School in Boston, there was organized chaos as nearly 250 students crowded into the auditorium. Then it was showtime. The students were celebrating African-American History Month. But the show was also…

    Credit recovery: A second chance or a second-rate education? | IN 60 SECONDS

    Ready? The US celebrated record high school graduation rates five times in the past five years. But test scores have been flat, raising red flags about grad rate inflation. Of course, schools offer supports to students at risk of not graduating. Chief among them: Credit recovery, makeup classes that give failing students a second chance to graduate on time. While widespread, participation is uneven. 39 percent of all students taking credit recovery attend just 8% of high schools. At that volume, schools create a quality problem where second chances become inferior second tracks to graduation. But these schools also have far more poor and minority students, making this quality problem…

    Graduation – November 2018 Moray House School of Education and Sport

    I love this University because of the academic staff. The open-mindedness that they have. I think for a Masters they kind of take you from where you are and where you want to go and they make sure that you get there. The most important thing is to learn how to manage your life, your learning. Take the most out of all of the resources that are available at the University. We get so much help from our professors. I enjoyed being challenged. It was great to have someone push back and push me out of my comfort zone and that’s what makes you grow. Keep calm. Contact your supervisors.…

    The Indian Education System

    Little boxes on the hillside, Little boxes made of ticky tacky, Little boxes on the hillside, Little boxes all the same. There’s a green one and a pink one And a blue one and a yellow one. God made them all differently, They looked anything but the same. Then the students in the houses All go to the university Where they are put in boxes And they come out all the same. And there’s doctors and lawyers And business executives God made them all differently, Now they all look just the same.
