The Power of Social Media in Education

Ever since its inception, the Internet has become an intricate part of life where persons depend on its access for daily activities such as shopping, social networking, education, banking, home security and other related activities. Among these, social networking, which seems to be the major attraction of the Internet, can be seen as a blessing and curse. Notably in education, social networking is seen as a positive indicator of advancement in education and its practices. However, we cannot deny the negative influences that can accompany it, which seems be a distracter for many students today.

Students frequently familiarize themselves with computers as they navigate these social networks. They gain valuable skills on an instrument that has become indispensable in the world they reside as students and the one, which they will enter upon completion of their studies. Also, it encourages networking with a variety of people, which can be viewed as a necessary skill in the business environment. This is also the case for teachers and administrators. With the existence of social blogs, Twitter and Facebook, teachers are able to share and record through various mediums, methods of instruction as well as teaching theories and practices in real-time. Furthermore, many are able to expand on techniques for learning and also interact with students on a consistent basis outside of the classroom.

On the contrary, the rise in social media and advancements in other interactive communicative technologies have produced negative impacts in and outside of the classroom. While social media can be seen as a positive tool for education, this tool has the potential to hinder student performance, social growth, and communication skills. Similarly, it can affect a teacher’s overall efficiency in several ways. To what do we owe a decline in academic performance as a result of its impact? What are the social ramifications of social media? What factors are directly responsible for the inability to educate students effectively? How are teachers affected by social media both in and out of the classroom?

For most, access to the Internet for educational purposes would be seen as a great resource for information; however, for students, the Internet poses many problematic factors in academic performance. In general, children who spend more time online find it harder to concentrate resulting in shorter attention spans. Students who rely solely on social media for information rather than researching other resources are likely to experience difficulty focusing on learning and information retention. It significantly affects study habits as students are attempting to multitask and end up becoming easily distracted because they are too busy tweeting and/or posting messages to Facebook in lieu of completing assignments.

Advancements in and excessive access to technology are direct factors on how social media has affected the student in and out of the classroom. Today, students spend most of their time on these networks via mobile devices. Some schools prohibit the use of these devices however; many of them sneak them into school. They use these devices to record videos; take photos of themselves and others, search the Internet, tweet and log on to Facebook, thus making it difficult to concentrate during instruction time. These activities also seek to inhibit effective instruction. In addition to this many of these activities have led to many problems in the school and community for example, fights, harassment, law suits etc. Excessive, unproductive time spent on social networks can therefore be very unhealthy, thus having a negative effect on teens and children. We can then argue that teaching/learning, is in direct competition with Social Media, when they should be partners in educating students.

The use of social networks has also significantly decreased the use of proper grammar and syntax in writing. Students have found it difficult to differentiate between the proper use of language as a result of abbreviated writing and shortened forms of word formulation. Many slang terms have become common in written class assignments. These terms IDK (I don’t know), SMH (shaking my head), BTW (by the way), YW (you’re welcome), TNX (thanks), IMO/IMHO (in my opinion/in my humble opinion) just to name a few, have crept up in students writing so much so that they are unable to understand the differences between the right and wrong way of spelling correctly. Teachers see the decline in proper writing in capitalization, punctuation, and subject-verb agreements, to name a few. Students are so immersed in poor grammar usage while online that they rely heavily on computer devices to autocorrect their mistakes resulting in the decline of their command over the use of English language. Subsequently creating a conflict in grammar usage.

Another key point not to be overlooked is the effect of social media on face-to-face communication. Clearly, if students spend more time on social networks then we can agree that they spend less time socializing in person. Lack of face-to-face interpersonal interactions can be directly linked to lack of social skills and etiquette. We learn important behaviors and emotional cues from close personal contact that cannot be learned online. As a result some students never learn to read body signals and other nonverbal cues, like tone and inflection. Social networking sites should not be seen as a replacement for personal contact but a valuable addition that can create a well rounded socially adjusted individual.

Today many students have become less social with one another preferring to interact online and live a virtual world based on false personas made easily accessible by social networking sites. This of course can have a lasting effect on the family unit, where effective face-to-face communication is essential in maintaining healthy relationships. Can we then cast some of the blame of today’s social ills and break down in family structure on social media? Often times, we go to restaurants, or other public spaces and everyone is busy on a device, thus very little face- to- face communication is going on. The question is how can we create a balance? How do we compete with this valuable tool we call the Internet whilst still maintaining healthy relationships?

Social media/networking affects both students and teachers alike. For instance, cyber-bullying can be seen as the leading negative proponent of social media. Many times violence in schools has started via a social networking site. Teachers are also affected by cyber-bullying. The perpetrators are sometimes students and/or parents. This abuse can be very damaging for a teacher as it decreases overall efficiency and confidence in the classroom. Teachers experience climbing levels of emotion stemming from being sad to becoming angry over online harassment. The experience can be humiliating and embarrassing. Defamation of character is quite common in the cyber world and continues to affect both teachers and students alike.

Social Media obviously affects all of us in some way or the other whether positively or negatively. Technology will continue to evolve, therefore; it is imperative that parents, teacher’s administrators and students all join hands together in encouraging positive, productive, effective, safe and responsible use of this valuable tool. The long-term effects of misuse can be very dangerous to progress in education and social development.

Education Sets You Free

Tied to her dead end, going no where job, a struggling mother of three enrolls in an online university, determined to make a better life for herself and her children. Soon, her outlook is much brighter and there is a glimmer of light at the end of her until then dreary tunnel. There was not a visit from a fairy godmother, no lottery windfall, simply the knowledge that education could and would make things better in a matter of time.

Education is the key to freedom for a lot of people- in this tough economy every little edge can make all the difference in the job market. Consider this: a college education can net you a job that pays far more than the job a high school diploma will win you. If you were an employer looking at two fairly equal applicants for a single position, would you chose the college graduate over the non grad? Of course you would not, you would take that extra diploma and pray that the degree is in something useful.

As the world becomes more and more technology based and fast paced, the competition for jobs will grow even fiercer. Soon there will be only the most menial jobs for those who will not go on to college, training in computer programming will be almost mandatory.

But education can mean more than just a better job and a higher paycheck; it can mean higher self esteem and the satisfaction that you can accomplish whatever you set your mind to. It does not matter when you return to school, or what you study, your brain wants to learn new things all the time. Keeping your mind fit and active is every bit as important as keeping your body healthy. Take a painting class, a cooking class, learn a new language. If you are retired, take the wild, out there class you were afraid to take while you were busy working. If you are still employed, consider a weekend class at a community college in something unrelated to your job- make it something fun for you to unwind. You will learn new things, meet new people and discover how free education can make you feel.

In most cases, you can apply for grants to help pay for your educational goals, and some employers will even reimburse some or all of your tuition if it is at all related to the job. (Check with your Human Resources representative first).

Of course, as with any new plan or idea, there might be opposition, but do not allow anyone to dissuade you from your goals. If your plan is a degree in 17th Century English Literature, then you go right ahead and get that degree! People are always afraid of new things, but that should not stop you in any way. There should be no blocking you- not your age, finances or time. If you want something bad enough, you will find a way to make things happen. Education is the key to freedom, so set yourself free, no matter what it takes. Oh, and that struggling mother of three? That would be me.

How to Study Alone and Pass Exams

These are advices from a medical doctor that studied alone to pass exams and enter medical school. No matter what are the exams you need to pass, these actions can help you study better and achieve higher scores.

First of all, feel motivated for studying. If you can’t motivate yourself to study that is probably because your career choices and the reason why you need to pass the exam aren’t the best for you. When we really want to accomplish something from the depth of the heart we love all steps of the journey. So analyze your situation and either feel that great motivation for studying or reformulate your goals.

Select good reference for every discipline you need to study. Not all textbooks or all reference materials are good enough to help you pass the exams. You need to choose them wisely since they will be the basis of your entrepreneurship as a successful autodidact. Go to a library or bookstore and get one main textbook for each discipline, choose the ones that are most complete and have review questions after the theoretical explanation. Check the program of your exam and the table of contents of each book. Also ask the bookseller or the librarian which option is the most well respected by the market. Pick the best ones. You need complete textbooks because in a following step you will make your own notes based on them.

Find a calm, organized, clean and pleasant place to study. This seems to be accessory but is fundamental. Take this advice very very seriously. If at your home you can’t manage to secure an own and exclusively yours place like that, search for it somewhere else. And don’t make a mess of that piece of paradise, keep your materials organized.

Plan your time for the study of all disciplines. It is strongly recommended that you study the disciplines one by one, not mixing them all. For example, if you need to study math, study it entirely for three weeks or more if necessary and only after that go to other discipline. This method will ensure that you’re focusing the learning of the contents of the discipline and your time will be spent more efficiently. So plan your schedule using weeks (not days or, worse, hours) for each discipline. Of course, after completing the study of a whole discipline, you should periodically revise your notes of the discipline and solve related problems to refresh your knowledge.

Now that you’re ready, all you have to do is to read the textbooks making summaries of their content. Imagine you’re studying the entire biology. Start reading the first chapter of your biology textbook and make systematic and organized notes of all of the concepts you know are necessary for you to learn or remember for the exams. Your goal here is to produce you own handwritten material for complete reference in order to study later using that material made by you and not the textbook. Keep this in mind and you will produce great summary notes of all disciplines.

Finally, don’t forget to solve questions. Problem solving training is fundamental. Solve the questions of the textbook just after you studied the related chapter. But even more important is to solve problems of at least the five previous exams you are going to face. Make this after reviewing an entire discipline.

Studying alone to pass exams isn’t so difficult as it seems to be. May these study tips be helpful for you.

Should I Get an Accounting Degree? Pros and Cons

The Pros:

  • You are almost guaranteed to find a job somewhere as there is always a need for accountants. Especially with the clamping down on financial legislation, professional management reports and annual financial statements need to be submitted in order to stay in business, so in house accountants are always on board, if not the people with accounting degrees are outsourced.
  • Unless you work for yourself, you will more than likely be offered work within a large firm allowing you to interact with many like minded people on a day to day basis.
  • Your degree can be utilized within many fields of accounting, adding diversity and growth to your qualifications.
  • Through the use of your studies, you can become exposed to many different types of business when you do their books or their tax. Whatever work you do for clients will be an education in the operating of their business.
  • Impressive salaries and opportunity for growth with any of these degrees.

  The Cons

  • Although there is a lot of job availability within this field, so too are there a lot of accounting degree graduates. You will be up against some tough competition for entry level jobs.
  • Using your accounting degree to go and work within a big firm, you will usually be assigned to many different operations for many different businesses. This means you will be answering to a number of different “bosses” which can be stressful and require a lot of management on your part.
  • On the whole, the accounting world is relatively conservative. But perhaps that will suit you?
  • Your work is generally billed per hour which means you need to stay on top of every single hour that has been worked. All work needs to be documented, so an extensive record of hours worked and to be billed needs to be kept.
  • All graduates will soon find out that you will be required to work long hours. Sometimes all night or all weekend if it means that the job gets done on time. That impressive salary does have it’s hitches!

All in all, opting to study for an accounting degree is a positive choice that will offer you many rewards in the long run. But maybe after perusing these few pros and cons, you will feel differently about this.

How Has Technology Improved Education?

Teaching and learning have taken on a whole new dimension due to the major impact of technology in schools. Teachers now have a medium to communicate effectively with one another and share ideas to better their teaching skills. They now have a pool of endless resources they can utilize to offer students the assistance they need to develop their ability and advance. The computer has improved education in many ways. There is now the reduced use of paper, which plays a role in environmental conservation. This positively supports what teachers are trying to instill in their pupils; it is important to preserve the natural environment and take care of our surroundings. There is no better way to do it than putting a stop to cutting down trees.

Other notable areas of improvements as a result of technology are;

– Information on different subject matter is readily accessible. This is not only beneficial to teachers, but students as well. There is no limit to the knowledge one can attain from the internet. What’s more, the material available is diverse since it’s presented by people from different parts of the world. This opens up a student’s viewpoint and allows for fresh, new ideas to arise.

– There is a lot of software that schools can use to create far more interesting presentations and programs. Students can use the software on projects thus they have a way to express their tasks effectively and in detail.

– Technology has helped do away with distance and time restrictions. Online education has opened numerous possibilities for students and teachers alike. You can now school or teach from anywhere in the world. Many online schools are accredited and registered with the necessary government bodies. This means that every individual interested in acquiring a higher education has the opportunity to do so now. Many people who have jobs also have the chance to pursue further studies without giving up their careers.

– The introduction of schools online has made education more enjoyable and achievable. Because this allows a visual and audio mode of communicating, everyone can share ideas, knowledge, as well as information and make others the better for it.

Through technology, education has been transformed. Learning and teaching has become more interactive. It has also done away with barriers as knowledge can now be shared across borders. Different cultures can now openly appreciate one another as they learn the various ways of life. Technology has undoubtedly improved the scope of education and through this there will be more technological advancements. Thus, technology and education are correlated; they work together to develop each other.

How to Coach Youth Cheerleading

Coaching a group of young cheerleaders can be a rewarding and fun experience. Teaching kids cheerleading stunts and cheers, and then helping them improve enough to perform in competition is a very proud feeling for any coach. But it’s a big responsibility and requires commitment and training to be successful and respected by your cheerleaders.Many cheerleading coaches are former cheerleaders who have aged out of competition or college cheer but want to continue to participate in this exciting sport. There are many ways you can become a cheerleading coach and there are many first time coaches without any background in cheerleading. Regardless of your cheerleading experience, it’s a good idea to become active within cheerleading communities online to build a network and get tips.

Master the fundamentals & techniques

  • If you aren’t a former cheerleader yourself with experience in cheerleading competition, learn as many of the moves as you can and how to teach them correctly. You will be demonstrating these cheerleading dance and cheer moves for the kids in your program so make sure you practice them yourself and master the fundamental cheerleading stunts. You can also find many good cheerleading video tutorials online from professionals for free
  • Cheer Warm-ups and Drills
    Make sure all of your cheerleaders are warmed up before working on drills. V-ups, straddle-ups, crunches, lunges, and squats will work the abdominal and leg muscles which are essential for high jumps. Also, make sure they warm up their arms, shoulders, and ankles. Pushups are a great exercise to warm up and strengthen the arms.
  • Great Cheer Jumping Drills
    Have your squad practice cheer jumps to counts. Use music to help them stay on the beat and have fun. Having the squad stand in a circle is a good way to see if they are in unison on the jumps. While they are jumping, you should call out the type of cheer jumps and count out loud.
  • Once they are warmed up, have your squad practice doing jumps into tumbling routines, such as back handsprings.
  • Cheer Tumbling Drills
    Make sure each cheerleading member has been trained properly before practicing any cheerleading moves and that all cheer spotters know how to spot each particular move. Once you pair each cheerleader with a cheerleader spotter, circulate around the gym making sure everyone, spotter and tumbler, is doing the drill correctly and safely.

Start as an Assistant

  • Some gyms start training their coaches while the future coach is still competing. Having an older cheerleader, one who is near the end of his or her competitive career, working with the youngest cheerleaders as an assistant coach is a good way for everyone to get a feel for the new coach’s abilities and dedication to coaching.

Get Certified

  • Each state has its own requirements for certification, and no coach should be permitted to coach a team for cheerleading competition without that certification. Doing so poses liability issues for the coach and the gym. In addition to state certification, there are three major certification programs. These meet the requirements for state certification in some states.
  • The American Association of Cheerleading Coaches and Administrators (AACCA) offer a Spirit Safety Certification Program that consists of lectures, required readings, and a timed exam. The program focuses on safety, liability, medical responsibilities, and other topics related to cheerleader safety.
  • The National Council for Spirit Safety and Education (NCSSE) offers core cheerleading classes in Principles and Ethics, Cheer Fundamentals, and Stunt & Tumbling I and II leading to Master level certification.
  • If you work for a private gym doing competitive cheerleading, you can get certified through the U.S. All Star Federation. They offer six levels of certification and training includes hands-on demonstration and Practical Field Experience.
  • First aid training is usually required for coaching. Even if it’s not required for your program, a Red Cross First Aid program is a good idea.

There are many resources for cheerleading coaches available particularly online at free sites like where they have hundreds of free skills & drills and tips for coaching cheerleading. You should also try to take advantage of some of the camps and conventions offered. The more you know, the more you’ll be able to teach your cheer squad. These programs typically focus on safety and you can never know enough about how to keep kids safe while still having fun and learning the proper techniques of cheerleading and dance.

The Top 5 Advanced Nursing Certifications

Nursing certifications are an extension of the multi-layered path of nursing education. Basic nurse’s certifications have to do with the level of college you have completed and the state certification you are assigned. LVN or LPN (Licensed Vocational Nurse or Licensed Practical Nurse) are typically a 2-year degree program. RN’s can have either an Associates or a Bachelor’s (BSN-RN) degree. From there a MSN (Masters of Science in Nursing) also opens doors. However, once your school is finished, there are a number of advanced certifications nurses can achieve that will help them go farther in their profession. Here are the top five.

CCRN – Critical Care Registered Nurse

This certification can be earned through classes and tests given by most major hospitals. The class takes about a semester and covers everything from recognizing drug reactions to advanced cardio care techniques. A CCRN is certified to work in telemetry, intensive care and critical care units where patients need constant monitoring and have life-threatening concerns. Salaries are often higher on those floors, and nurses see fewer patients per shift because they require almost constant care.

Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE)

This certification is one of the most in-demand in hospitals and private doctor’s offices. With the increase of Americans with Diabetes currently occurring and the soaring obesity rate, which means more people will have diabetes in the future, CDE’s will never be out of opportunities for employment. The task of the CDE is to explain to people with Diabetes the best diet for their health, teach children and adults how to inject insulin and test their blood sugar, and provide consistent health education.

ACRN – HIV/AIDS Certified Nurse

Another specialty that is sadly seeing a dramatic increase is the need for nurses with a special education in HIV/AIDS. These nurses take courses in immunology and the symptoms of the disease as well as some cultural sensitivity classes that deal with both the homosexual community and IV drug users. ACRN’s can work in hospitals or specialty community clinics, which specialize in HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment and care.

CRNA – Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist

This is one of the harder certifications to get and is one of the most lucrative. A CRNA provides anesthesia for surgery and procedures, under the guidance of an anesthetist. Besides a BS, and RN certification a CRNA must take 2 years of classes and apprentice an anesthetist for up to 2 years before being certified. However, once certified the CRNA median salary for a CRNA is $175,000 per year in a hospital/per provider care system. The downside to this lucrative job is lawsuits. Anytime anything happens in an operating room, the CRNA is liable.

OCN – Oncology Certificate in Nursing

Oncology nurses are especially trained to provide chemotherapy, radiation aftercare and work with cancer patients. This deeply rewarding certification also comes with the ability to work in a hospital, cancer treatment center or local clinic. OCN’s usually have set hours and a number of prescribed duties requiring less physical strain, but practice with more compassionate care.

Each of these nursing certifications is available through the health care system of any major school or city and can add money, opportunity or challenge to the life of an RN.

The Advantages and Disadvantages of Continuing Education

Pursuing higher education will come with great benefits, as well as pitfalls. This article will examine both to help you choose.

The top advantages of continuing education include:

The Bureau of Labor Statistics depicts that individuals earn more with each educational attainment. As an example, compare the following median weekly earnings by educational attainment:

· Workers with Associates Degrees – $785/week

· Workers with Bachelor’s Degrees – $1066/week

· Workers with Master’s Degrees – $1300/week

· Workers with Doctoral Degrees – $1624/week

Furthermore, unemployment rates decrease the higher up the educational ladder one climbs.

Another study by Global Business Hub showcased how heading back to school opens up employees’ eyes about new technological and work trends. Interacting with other leaders, or soon to be leaders in the business also provide key networking opportunities that may come in handy in the future. Ultimately, higher education provides a competitive advantage over one’s peers or in the workplace.

Continuing education is also convenient and completely feasible, given that online colleges are plentiful, and can also be completed with reputable colleges offline. Working adults can pursue new goals or even make a career switch – on their own schedule.

The top disadvantages of continuing education include:

More on student’s plate – in addition to work and family life, students returning to an online degree school in adulthood will need to squeeze in time for school as well. Taking on more than one can handle seems like a recipe for disaster. However, many working adults make this work by creating a schedule and carving a disciplined mindset. Inform family and friends to chip in, or forego partying for a period of time until the goal of higher education is complete.

A strain on finances – while many working adults have the advantage to earn while they learn, higher education is not considered to be a drop in the bucket. Fortunately, there are many programs to help offset these added expenses including student loans, as well as affordable monthly payments offered by some colleges.

Recreation Takes a Back Seat – a study by the Global Business Hub stated that adult students are less likely to take vacations. However, this shouldn’t deter one from pursuing higher education, as reminders constantly exist that this situation is temporary.

In the end, despite the cons of continuing education, the balance is tipped in students’ favor in the long run. As a reminder, this includes higher pay, better job security, and increased confidence.

Find Out What You Need to Know About Shichida and Heguru Kindergarten

I have heard of many right brain schools available in Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Japan, Thailand, Australia and others.

Being a mother, right brain education caught my interest as I found out it helps strengthen family's relationship and it can train my daughter's creativity.

It can also help my daughter achieve her future goals and ambition.

I have been wondering how to decide on the best school for my son and would like to share the knowledge I've found with other parents.

The best time to start right brain education is when your child is between 4 months to 3 years as they use their right brain during that time.

Your child is also able to handle a lot of information at an amazing speed. "Shichida Method" and "Heguru" are the two most established right brain schools in Japan. The following are some information I managed to find:


Available: Japan, Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia & Australia Age: 4 months – 6 years


Available: Japan & Malaysia Age: 4 months – 12 years

The lessons are conducted once every week for an hour. However, we parents are required to do work at home, like:

Flash Cards Mandala Eye Training Speed ​​Reading ESP Photographic Memory Others

Both the Heguru and Shichida Method school's are not able to provide us parents with teaching materials and we have to buy them ourselves.

If there are not any right brain schools in your area, you could still teach your child as there is a lot of information available online.

Just conduct some research to find suitable products online, buy them and start teaching your child.

Right brain education helps your child's growth and it's best to make use of the first few years of your child's childhood to educate and nurture them.
