8 things to look for in a student-centered learning environment, Thony Norelli | Sweden

When you enter a school, what are you looking for? When you think about what kind of learning environment is ideal for your child or the students you work with, what are the most important characteristics? What are the most positive, memorable experiences from your own school?

I appreciate many different learning models and environments and do not honestly think it’s my role to judge or evaluate what’s “good”. As I said, from years of classroom teaching and countless visits and interactions with excellent teachers all over the world, I have created a list of things I usually observe in good student-centered learning environments. As the Nellie Mae Education Foundation describes, student-centered learning studies “students in their own success – integrating their interests and skills in the learning process.” Student learning is personal, competence-based, happening at any time and / or anywhere and students have ownership in their learning.

I parade my personal list of thoughts from my teammates on Getting Smart to create a collection of “School Look Fors” based on our discussions and experiences in schools.

Keep in mind that these Look Fors are not intended to evaluate a learning environment. Rather, they can serve as a springboard to create talks and discussion points. In addition, some of our favorite learning environments are places where teachers are still working to address some of these Look Fors. It is obvious yet important to say this: Every day is different in every school, and we are not familiar with the ongoing experiences and interactions of these teachings and learning in these spaces.

Among the fourteen School Look Fors above, there are eight in particular that really matter when it comes to student-centered learning environments.

1) High degree of student engagement; Challenge, enthusiasm, joy. One of the goals of creating a student-centered environment should be to make learning fun, challenging and engaging. Thrive Public Schools is one of the most happy places we have visited. Pleasing learning combined with goal-conscious challenge makes Thrive truly an incredible place. Laughter and engagement flow through each hall and classroom.

2) Students know what they learn and why. Katherine Smith students, including the fourth grade student (pictured in Quality Work + Project-Based Learning at Katherine Smith Elementary) who shared their written project goals with us, know what they need to do to perform a project or task. The project was tailored to her goals and she worked at her own pace to achieve them. Educator from Katherine Smith agrees that this does not happen overnight, but with good PBL help, kindergartners can also have this level of focus and clarity.

3) Mixing of individual collaborative teams and large group work. Intrinsic Schools in Chicago are literally designed, both in structure and teaching, to be a blend of individual and teamwork. Students work all in great learning and rotate between groups or one-on-one instructions with their teachers.

 

4) Students use personal technology to produce as well as consume. Student-centered learning requires students to spend at least part of their day working with personal learning tasks or projects. CICS Irving Park students in Chicago use the summit during a number of school days, and staff now see that discipline problems are lower and commitment is skyrocketing. CICS Irving Park collaborates with LEAP Innovations in personal learning, working together to ensure that learning is not only individualized but also meaningful and linked to reality.

5) Students have the opportunity to work at their own pace and explore their own interests. Exploring student interests (and interests that they do not even realize they have) is the essence of a good student-centered environment. Students also work to deal with skills, or skills, and do it at the same time. Da Vinci students ebb and flow in and out of group work and individual projects, which are usually designed based on student interests. Many Da Vinci students work to master skills and earn SNHU credits to do that. They may choose focus areas for their learning, which may include learning about societies and causing them to be most passionate. Students often work with a similar set of goals, but not all of the same activity or task.

6) Students do the most of the work and talk. The students’ ideas and voices are central and central in student-centered learning environments. Design39 students are convinced communicators and employees. Learning Experience Designers (also known as teachers) empowers students to start and control their learning, but allows a lot of student discussion and working time. During our visit last year, the students worked themselves or in groups at school. A group of third grade we chatted where to address this question: “How can we define ourselves in this world we live in?”

7) There are several forms of assessment, feedback and demonstrations of learning. Students in student-centered learning environments receive a lot of feedback. They receive individual feedback, hopefully on both academic and social and emotional goals. They also get group or group response, maybe based on projects or group activity. At Cougar New Tech in El Paso Independent School District, students keep their projects open in an in-school museum. When visitors come, they get their presentations and get feedback to improve their work.

8) Instruction, culture and the environment reflect and include student and personality diversity. From the Secretary-General to the Vice President, the Chavez Multicultural Academic Center staff really reflects the community and the students served. The halls and walls are covered with student articles, cultural displays and messages of empowerment about diversity as a force. The students see themselves in their learning space and their cultural strengths are emphasized throughout the learning day and in the physical school environment.

What else would you add? Above all, there is no better sign than being in a school environment where teachers, parents and students say they are happy about their school and are convinced of the quality of teaching and learning.

5 characters you have what it takes to be an entrepreneur | Thony Norelli | Sweden

  • 20160321103826-shutterstock-217119211You have an epic idea. Now then? The real challenge for any entrepreneur does not start. It’s left on business. Yes, you can be successful as an entrepreneur but it will not be easy. It has never been easy to start and run a successful company.

    Startups are always difficult. But if you do not pursue your dreams, you will never know if there is a chance to be successful. Dreams are all we have. Take them seriously. The bitter truth is that most entrepreneurs fail to get their businesses off the ground. Every insanely successful start story has a flip side. If you ask any good business owner about what is required, he or she will probably mention one of these characters.

  • You can do your ideas.

    “Y Combinator does not invest in ideas it invests in people” – Paul Graham

    Execution is all for start. You may have the best idea and even have money for it, but if you can not perform, you have no business. Having a good idea is not enough. You can have the most brilliant idea, but if it’s running badly, you will soon be out of order. You will end up in the dead pool.

    You do not need an original idea to be successful. Dating is nothing new but Tinder changed how to help people find better dates online. Google has conducted the search brilliantly but it was not the first search engine.

    There are hundreds of people who may have had a similar idea as your mind, but failed to implement. If you have what it takes to get an idea from nothing to a stable company, you will go a long way on your entrepreneurial journey. Ideas are cheap, it’s execution that matters.

  1. 1) You really care what you do or want to do.

    If you do not care enough about a product or service you want to give, you do not even start it. Startups are not sprints. They are marathon. You will not be able to build a company that can hold if it does not mean more than money for you.

    Every entrepreneur needs the intense, driving or overwhelming sense of conviction of his or her idea of ​​pushing it past the idea phase. Getting started takes a lot of stamina. And it can carry you down. It is full of stress and back support. And most startups fail. You must love it to get over every obstacle.

    If you are not passionate about your career choice, you can also give up right now because your start will never go as it should. Solving a problem you care about is a great way to start a business.

    2. You may come across failures in life and business.

    “If you’re not prepared to be wrong, you’ll never find any original.” – Ken Robinson, Successful entrepreneurs know how to overcome their failures. Failure is not a sign of permanent problems, but just as a step on the road to success. Big entrepreneurs know that. And they have the strength to go beyond temporary challenges.

    Read about Richard Branson. You will be surprised at the number of companies that he founded in the past. You probably know about his most popular company. But it goes beyond that.

    Check out this timeline of his business now and in the past. But not all are still running. But it gives you a good idea of ​​his stamina and what took him to make it as big as we know today.

    3)You are a passionate lifelong teacher.

    Work harder on you than you do at work. “- Jim Rohn

    The most successful entrepreneurs spend a lot of time working on their personal development. There are no traditional rules for success. What works for Google may not necessarily work for Yahoo. Wonderful entrepreneurs are constantly learning how their companies can adapt and change over time to be relevant now and in the future. The process of exploring, understanding and even managing different topics prepares entrepreneurs for new opportunities and helps them make informed decisions about their businesses.

    Warren Buffett spends 80 to 90 percent of his day reading hundreds of pages to gather knowledge to be better at what he does. His industry thrives on information. Richard Branson never participated in the university, but he has begun and ran some of the most overthodox and successful companies in the world. Never stop learning. And continue to ask critical questions. That’s the only way to be relevant to your customers now and the next decade. Entrepreneurs are passionate lifelong students.

    4) You can handle risks.

    An entrepreneur tends to bite a little more than he can chew and hope he quickly learns to chew it. “- Roy Ash

    How much are you willing to lose for the work of your life? One of the biggest risks most entrepreneurs take is the decision to leave their jobs to pursue their dream careers. When it comes to it, can you make the decision to focus on the one that matters to you? Most people can not do it. Uncertainty can be overwhelming.

In Sweden, 6-hour working days increase productivity, energy and happiness

20160504122807-shutterstock-400847059

 

 

Office benefits like free snacks and gym membership discounts just go so far. Appears, if you really want to make your employees happy, consider cutting their hours.

That’s what a Swedish city found. Recently, researchers in the country’s second largest city, Gothenburg, conducted a 23-month study that tested a six-hour working day for nurses in a healthcare center. From February 2015 to December 2016, the researchers examined the effects of a shorter working week of 68 female nurses, a profession considered to be very stressful. Nursing hours were cut, but their salary was in

They found that nurses’ productivity levels increased as a result of working shorter days. They took fewer days and were obviously happier and more energetic. Overall, nurses who worked for six hours worked 4.7 per cent fewer days of sickness than when they worked eight hours.

The proportion of nurses who still had energy after their shift also increased – from about 20 percent to 50 percent for those who worked six hours a day. This extra energy may be partly because the six-hour group increased its physical activity by 24 percent over the duration of the study. “Less fatigue and more physical activity is the big improvement,” said Bengt Lorentzon, one of the researchers who conducted the study, The Washington Post.

However, the study did not take long to determine if shorter working days would lead to long-term improved health for employees – thereby reducing healthcare costs for employers – noted Lorentzon.

The study concluded that by working for shorter days, nurses managed their tasks better and were happier, healthier and less stressed. “They would go the extra mile,” said Lorentzon. “They had more time to sit and listen, read a book, watch a magazine with [patients] or comfort those who do not feel so good.”

Employers with shorter working weeks for employees may worry about the costs of having additional jobs to complete (as for nurses) jobs that consider the savings that more productive employees would receive. But for companies that do not trust shift workers, the potential for increased productivity can take six hours to experiment with.

 

 

Best strategies to invest actively in shares

There are a number of well documented ways to beat the stock market over time. You can divide these into different categories, but usually it’s about paying less for shares than they are worth. The most well-known and well-documented ways to beat the stock exchange are as follows:

– Net nets (Graham and Buffett)

– Special situations and knockouts (Joel Greenblatt)

– Activist (Carl Icahn)

– Buy and keep good company (Buffett)

 

MostActive

 

All of these categories have been used to beat the stock market and the people in brackets are the best known to have been successful. There is also a lot of empirical evidence that these strategies have worked and many have been rewritten on this blog.

The first two categories are more that using arbitrage available on the market, by purchasing companies that are extremely low priced or not guarded by the market. This has proved to be the most profitable kind of shares to invest in and Buffett has said that if he had only one million dollars, he would be able to earn 50% return per year by investing in this way. Greenblatt succeeded in doing this for 10 years when investing in special situations, and that has still worked well, although there are now several players in this industry.

Being an activist like Icahn, on the other hand, is difficult because you have to take great positions and get in touch with companies. On the other hand, you get roughly similar stocks with the quantitative strategies I’ve written about here, and not uncommonly, Icahn appears in the owner lists. Being an activist is difficult, but you can follow John in this case.

Buying and maintaining good companies is something Buffett is an expert in and is clearly the most popular investment form. Here you can divide it into a few different types of companies, both those who are more conservatively valued and where you can use an approach similar to Graham’s defensive criteria, but also if you are more aggressive and buy growth companies at a good price. Buffett is best known for the latter, buying companies that grow a lot for a long time at a good price. This strategy differs more from the others, as the other is about exploiting arbitrage in the market while it is about identifying companies that are in themselves good.

There are a wealth of blogs that follow all of these strategies mentioned above. I identify my investment philosophy more to the first categories, as I have both the net in my portfolio and buy quantitatively inexpensive shares. More who are more active in this are the blogs Value Agency and Cigarffimpar, but sometimes the Securities and blogs linked to the newspaper. For the latter category, good companies that you buy and maintain for a long time there are a lot of blogs about. One that I have seen recently has been really good is Nemcap, can recommend reading his blog and the latest post.

 

When it comes to being active in the stock market it takes enormous effort to be read and understand their shares. For example, I understand not the special with the companies that Nemcap has in its portfolio. His recommendation is to spend +15 hours a week for several years to succeed well. To compare, a former colleague dropped so much time on his run and he came as the best European in the New York Marathon. It is, therefore, an extreme discipline and conviction to succeed well, and only a few succeed so much after spending so much time. Many of the aforementioned work full time with investments and they are known for working long weeks. Geoff Gannon, who also succeeds in investing actively, believes that the absolute minimum is to spend an hour a day, and in any case, 5 shares that you have for 5 years. It means more than two hundred hours per share. So it takes a lot of time to succeed in the stock market and the odds are against one. For this reason, I am looking forward to investing quantitatively, as it takes a minimum of time and many times performs as well as if you were active.

Thony Norelli Describe the type and structure of financial markets and their roles.

A financial market is a broad term that describes which market buyers and sellers participate in trading in assets such as equities, bonds, currencies.

In particular, Thony Norelli Research has provided further facts about the nexus for economic growth and has offered a much deeper assessment of the causal relationship. Business level, industry level and cross-border studies indicate that the level of economic development has a major positive impact on economic growth

 

Financial markets (such as stock traders or bonds), instruments (from bank CD to futures and derivatives) and institutions (from banks to insurance companies to funds and pension funds) allow investors to specialize in specific markets or services, diversify risks, or both. As demonstrated by Demirgüç-Kunt and Levine, financial markets and financial institutions together contribute to economic growth. The relative blend of the two does not appear to be an important factor in growth.

Now, Thony Norelli describes speculative proprietary trading “operations now limited. Under French banking legislation, banks must restrict their” speculative proprietary trading “activities to a separate subsidiary.
