How To Approach the Educator’s Classroom: Different Challenges in Teaching
In the education sector, teachers have a great power to influence their students. How teachers use that power is crucial as it is reflected in what they do.

By nature of what they do, they have to power to choose what lessons to teach, how much information to share, and how much to leave for their students to learn for themselves.

Teachers also hold great power to guide their students and easily develop their skills. But despite these powers, the teaching profession requires abilities of grading papers all day and carries along other numerous challenges.

Listed below are some of the most difficult challenges that teachers face, regardless of whether they are just new or already experienced. 

Different Challenges in Teaching
  1. Bad behavior of students-The management of the classroom is considered to be one of the most difficult and bewildering challenges that teachers face. It is important to note that all students have different behavior and that each one behavior needs a unique approach. This challenge is even harder to manage when the class size is more than 30. Yikes!
  2. Different learning abilities of students-Just like their behavior, all students have different learning abilities and styles—some students only need little help while some struggle with the lessons in the course. Managing a class is not easy, let alone make sure that everyone is able to comprehend the lesson. In order to address this, teachers have to be competent enough while at the same time motivating the growth of the students’ learning abilities.
  3. Respecting everyone’s expectations-In class, teachers are expected to educate students so that when they graduate, they know how to survive in the “real world” and make the best possible choices in life. Aside from meeting the expectations of students in the class, teachers have to make sure that they are still in line with the visions and missions of the educational institutions they are in. Managing student organizations, conducting assemblies, and managing club activities are just some of their activities.
  4. Helping students reach short-term and long-term goals-Some of the most common short-term of students are to get good grades in order to pass the course and to accomplish tasks like leadership, sports, and other extracurricular activities. Aside from achieving these, teachers also have to make sure that students understand the value of education and what is its importance in realizing their future careers.
  5. Lack of time-Regardless of whether classes are short or long, teachers are always faced with the challenge of trying to squeeze in important information during each class period. Furthermore, other activities such as planning lessons, creating class materials, as well as organizing learning activities make it hard for teachers to even fit in time for themselves.
With all these challenges they have to face every day, teachers do not need to fly or have superpowers to be called as superheroes.  And indeed, as the quote goes, “With great power comes great responsibility”.

Even the most prepared and experienced ones cannot easily manage the aforementioned challenges in teaching.

Nevertheless, great teachers can definitely find solutions to overcome them and succeed—ultimately giving students the kind of education they need.

Boarding Schools: What are The Biggest Concerns of Parents?
Being a parent is the most hectic & tedious job across worldwide and the worst part is there is no training and shortcuts for this profile. Parenting lessons get start from the moment you become parent.

It’s the most self-less job in which learning curve grows exponentially and over the time, concerns get multiplied. Since every child is different, you cannot even copy paste the parenting skills of anyone else.

Finding the solution to your concerns is the most important thing. So, spend some time over your concerns and seek clarification.

The most essential part of making your child ready for boarding school is to make yourself ready.

Following are the few common questions that every parent contemplates and seeks answers for:

Is My Child Safe At Boarding School?

Your child is taken extra care at boarding school and hence they will be safe & secure. To be sure about this concern, you can check the track record of the boarding school you’re considering for your child.

How About Academics at Boarding School?
Students do extra-ordinarily well in academics at boarding schools. At boarding schools, students not only perform well in academics but also in other activities and above all, they learn responsibility and punctuality.

They build a character and focus is one overall personality development. At home, children are either alone or with their parents but at boarding school, they are always surrounded with the same age group people. .

Hence, they tend to develop as per surroundings and turn out to be a better global citizen than a day school. Environment at boarding schools nurture and groom the child from different aspects.

Do They Get Time For Themselves?
It’s a myth that 24 hours of students’ life are bounded by boarding schools. However, the fact is that there is a fixed timetable to be followed.

The timetable is set to teach them punctuality but it is also true that there is free time for the students so that they can decide where to spend that time.

They can do whatever they like during that spare time as they are not bounded for library or sports complex or auditorium. They have their own to spend at leisure.

Only Spoiled Children Join Boarding School
It is a complete myth that only spoiled children join boarding schools. Most of the boarding schools conduct an entrance examination for admissions. Hence, it is made sure that non-sincere students are not admitted to maintain the decorum of the school. Also, it is kept in mind that healthy peer group is provided to the students for their better growth & development. 

Will My Child Get Emotionally Detach From Me?
Emotional concerns are always there whenever it is about distance between parents and children. But it’s all about the bright future of your child. It’s a myth that child forgets or gets emotionally detach from his/her parents after attending boarding school.

However, the thing is that the bond grows fonder over the time. When child has to do the things at his/her own that parents used to do like laundry, serving food, making bed etc., he/she realizes what is missing.

Moreover, there is option of stay at home over weekends at many boarding schools, so it can come to the rescue.

Is Hometown Good Enough For Boarding School? 

Choosing boarding school in your hometown or somewhere else is totally your decision. Our advice is to find the best one whether it is available in your hometown or some other city.

Check out facilities provided at various boarding schools and trace the track record of results and alumni. Choosing hometown just because it will be close to your home won’t make any sense if your child doesn’t get the best facilities & amenities of a boarding school.

Which is the best boarding school?
There is huge number of boarding schools in India and it’s really difficult to choose the best when everyone tends to claim to be the best. Before zeroing in, have the list of boarding schools and facilities provided by everyone.

It is also advised to visit each school once to know about faculty members, hostel facility and administration. You can talk to existing students at the school about the facilities provided. Then, as per your priorities, you can choose the best boarding school for your child.

How to Remain Happy During UPSC Preparation

How to Remain Happy During UPSC Preparation
Only an aspiring UPSC candidate understands the pressure and hard work that goes into the preparation stage of this exam. Under these circumstances, staying happy and motivated so that you don’t lose your mind, feels like an added burden.

Your own thought processes, constant day dreaming, expectations, every day pressures, and desire to perform well get in the way of your happiness. If you see yourself nodding to these instances, here are a few tips that can help you stay happy during UPSC preparation.


Get Rid of the Pressures in your Head

This is easier said than done, but you need to learn to compartmentalize. Free yourself from all kinds of negative thoughts such as expectations of parents, your future, and the likes. Prepare for the exam by focusing on the present day. Make note of the things you have to accomplish for that day and see that you work hard to achieve them.

Find the Will and Motivation to Pull Through

Motivate yourself to do better, even when no one tells you to do so. After all, it is your goal and so you need to put in the effort and study for it. You have to find the strength from within to persevere and persist without waiting for external factors to tell you to do so. Also, accept the fact that if things don’t turn out according to your plan or you do not get the score you expect, you will be okay.

Enjoy What You Do

When you do something you love such as going shopping, indulging in sports or watching a movie, you automatically enjoy it. The same goes for UPSC preparation. When you begin to enjoy studying, you won’t feel like it’s such a burden. Opt for subjects you genuinely have a liking towards. Learn to create curiosity around the topics. Think of it as a chance to learn and become more knowledgeable.

Focus on the Things You are Good at

Develop an understanding about your strengths and work on them. There will be instances when you encounter hurdles and low times during your civil service preparation. It is during these times you need to pay attention to the things you are good at. For instance, you can tell yourself that you are good at English; you can definitely handle Maths.

Keep a Track of Your Advancement

Sometimes, it’s good to look back at how far you have already come. Whenever you feel blue, you can look at your track record and feel pumped up to carry on. It gives you an idea of your past struggles and how you fought to overcome them. This naturally fills you with pride and you are left feeling happy and eager to achieve more while still being content about how far you have come.

Eat Healthy and Stay Active

It is important to eat properly and have a healthy diet. This also includes adequate amounts of water. You also need to devote a part of your time to staying active. This encompasses exercise, going for a jog, cycling or whatever other activity suits your fancy. This helps keep your body in top condition and also betters your mental health. You are also better equipped to concentrate and pay attention.

Inspire Yourself and Imagine

Imagining yourself as a civil servant without day dreaming about it works wonders. It helps you when you are feeling down. You can also look at your favorite personality for inspiration. You really have to believe in yourself, even if you can’t, pretend to do so. Eventually you will get there.

Avoid Negative People

The last thing you want is people telling you that you can’t make it. This works like a deal breaker. It is best to stay away from the cynics of the world for your own mental health and peace of mind. Staying in the presence of such people eventually causes their negativity to rub off on you. It’s best to avoid them altogether.

Attempt to do something productive each day and get a good night’s sleep. Try to minimize anxiety levels and make a choice to be happy and positive regardless of the circumstances. Remember, happiness and progress is interconnected. If you strive to remain happy while studying hard, you will succeed and ace the UPSC exams.

With more and more Fortune 500 Companies requiring a college degree to enter into a meaningful position within a particular field, parents of pre-college students are seeking viable and affordable alternatives to  educate their children in the most advantageous form there-by providing an opportunity for their children to experience all that life has to offer.

Where academic grades are a major factor reviewed my many college admissions boards, a more profound approach to college preparation has continued to gain popularity at an increased pace.

From Ivy League colleges to a more standardized approach to college preparation, boarding schools continue to receive additional recognition that surpasses all other more traditional approaches to college preparation with the development of a child beyond classroom attendance.

Regardless of the school selected, boarding schools offer students a chance for total fulfillment, developing each on an individualized basis with a long tradition of academic excellence and experiences that exceed, or go beyond the more traditional classroom attendance. From onsite, extended away from home “live on” campuses to localized “day” locations within a local community, boarding school graduates often become the leaders of tomorrow leading exceptional lives today.

Being away from home for the first time can be and often is a new alarming experience for the parents as well as the prospective student who have not ventured beyond a parents love and daily attention.

With a never ending list of possibilities to consider in selecting a proper boarding school, parents and the prospective student should select a boarding school that is a home away from home.

Situated Learning Is Effective in Imparting Practical Knowledge

12:03 PM
Situated Learning Is Effective in Imparting Practical Knowledge
Learning that is imparted through an application of the context of the subject being learned, is called situated learning.

Etienne Wenger and Jean Lave proposed this concept originally as a method of learning for people who are in the same profession or craft and use community practice to dispense learning skills.

Situated Learning Theory - What Is It?

 Situated LearningThe theory behind situated learning is that knowledge imparted in a classroom is abstract and, therefore, difficult for a student to retain.

Real learning is possible when it is in the same context, i.e. when students can correlate the learning by directly applying it to activities in the same culture.

As a result of this form of learning, an electrical mechanic will understand electrical circuits more clearly than a student of engineering whose knowledge is mostly theoretical with just some practical experience that helps in the understanding of the working of electrical circuits.

An electrical mechanic, during the process of learning, will directly understand the benefits of being successful and the consequences of making any mistakes.

Applying Situated Learning Theory

In an environment of situated learning, a student is in learning situations that require being immersed in activities while having to use critical thinking skills to solve problems.

These opportunities must involve a community that is constantly faced with real world situations. As a result, situated learning encourages students to take advantage of their prior knowledge and to be able to challenge other people who are of the same community.

There are different ways to apply this theory, such as:

Group Activities

Employees can go on field trips in which they take an active part in environments that they are not familiar with, education that is accommodating and practical experience that involves them physically in actual work environments.

Sports practice in training facilities, music practice in studios or orchestras, laboratories and child care centres that become classrooms where employees are confronted with situations that they will be required to deal with in real life and go through scenarios where they have to find solutions to problems that are real.

As per this theory, learners are placed in situations during the learning process and this becomes a part of the process of gaining knowledge, its context and an understanding of the culture where this learning is used and being constantly developed.

Role Playing

Employees are involved in actions that are akin to everyday problems faced by the likes of a sales representative, an operations manager, an expert on marketing or an HR executive. The knowledge comes from the context and is useful in similar situations.

It is important that learners indulge in role-playing that puts them in situations that will involve them in activities that are complex, real and centred on problems that provide the needed support for the acquisition of knowledge.

The corporate trainer in such situations becomes a facilitator. Tracking the progress, assessing the output from the learners, building environments that help collaborative learning, encourage thinking and help the student to become aware of the context that can help them to understand and aid in the transferring of knowledge.

Scenario Based Learning

Situated learning is not separate from the actual world, but has an existence in social environments that are robust and complex and has situations, actions and actors. Facilitators have to provide scenarios for the students after they know the guidance that is required, its type and its intensity that can help learners to overcome situations.

As students develop their learning skills, the support that is needed will continue to reduce. Assessment of their intellectual growth, individually and as a group has to come through discussion, thinking and necessary evaluation.

Using Technology

It is hard for any person to retain information and facts when they are not in context and learning becomes much easier when the same knowledge comes through games or is acquired over microblogs or blogs on the social media. Social media sites like Twitter, Ning or Facebook help learners to join communities that can learn from one another but they must move away from personal connections.

The learning process is significantly helped by social interactions. You can understand concepts better if they are in contexts that come from social peers who have the knowledge of how to apply them.

Many years ago, Eduard Lindeman, argued that learning comes from daily living. The central process of knowledge comes from experience and the practice of solving problems. This is something that educators must understand when they teach. It is important to realise that education must involve action that is committed and informed.

The ideas given above are fascinating and must be explored for their significance as they can take informal educators in directions that are different from the present trend that insists on formalisation and accreditation.

A guide to choosing Uni Accommodation for Students in Portsmouth
So you’ve been successful in winning a place at University, and you’re off to Portsmouth. Congratulations!

However, just before you get carried away dreaming about all the fun you will be having in your new student life, there’s one big thing to sort out beforehand. Yes, it’s a pain, but you will need to think about choosing uni accommodation for students in Portsmouth - and quickly!
University of Portsmouth
University of Portsmouth

Why? Because it’s one of the biggest headaches, and having the right university accommodation is one of the main aspects for a settled student life. Whilst there’s many tales of student accommodation hell, it need not be stressful when choosing uni accommodation for students in Portsmouth - as this article will show.

Start with thinking about your ideal uni accommodation

We’ve heard all the stories about students struggling for money, and it’s not just through partying. Living costs, transport, rent, utilities and other costs can soon eat into your budget if you’re not careful.

Be wary of choosing university accommodation for students in Portsmouth that is too expensive, as you certainly don’t want to blow all your money on rent and have none for everyday life.

Equally, you don’t want to scrimp too much on university accommodation, as you need to be settled, rested, comfortable in your new student life to have the best chance of success.

So take a few moments and think about the following:-

Would you rather have student uni accommodation in Portsmouth on your own, or share with a group?

Whilst it can be fun - and cheaper - to share costs with other students, don’t forget why you’re at university in Portsmouth in the first place - to study!

You need a space to retreat to, to get away from stresses, noise and chaos and so it’s sometimes worth checking how you can get this? Is it a private room in a shared uni accommodation, or a room in a Hall of Residence?

If you really want to stretch your budget, you could take a private bedsit, studio apartment or similar but remember our advice on keeping the costs down.

Don’t forget your living expenses

When you are choosing uni accommodation for students in Portsmouth, don’t forget everyday living costs - and we’re not talking about cider here!

You may be able to afford the rent, but take care to consider the following:-
  1. Transport costs to/from Uni (and home)
  2. Utility bills
  3. Ground charges - e.g. council tax, car parking, lease or security charges etc.
  4. Food (and drink)
  5. Cooking facilities (despite what students say, you can’t live on takeaways!)
  6. Gym charges/lifestyle fees (e.g. social clubs or groups, sports clubs etc.)

Stay flexible

Even if you think you’ve found your dream university accommodation for students in Portsmouth, remember that things can change quickly.

You may change course, campus, or meet ‘that special someone’ and want to move in with them, so ensure you’re not overcommitted contractually on student accommodation.

Our advice is to choose the most flexible commitment for university accommodation in Portsmouth. 

This means don’t commit to one place for the full duration - e.g. two or three years - of your course unless you’re certain it will still be as suitable for you in three years as it is today.
