Устанавливаю приложение для изучения английского. А мне с порога - ты это чаво куда? Я часто сталкиваюсь с таким в реальной жизни - ты ж в Англии училась, зачем тебе учить английский?? Отличный пример когнитивных иллюзий. Да, я интенсивно учила академический английский, да, я написала на английском диссер. Но без практики, без постоянных задач, которые ты решаешь с помощью языка, все навыки атрофируются. И снова мучительно вспоминаешь конструкции и обороты "как они тут говорят", а не "как было написано в учебнике". Поэтому фильмы и серииалы на английском, чтение профессиональной литературы на английском, по возможности - поездки в страну и активное общение в пабах. В планах - вывод наших #silamedia продуктов на англоязычный рынок, выступления на конференциях, интенсивный курс в школе драмы, интенсив по сторителлингу, возможно, хватит сил на ведение блога на английском. Потому что в мире моей профессии все самое значимое происходит на английском. При этом курсы по редактированию на русском я тоже периодически прохожу. Потому что не практикуя язык, не решая сложные задачки на нём, язык атрофируется... и так с любым навыком #english#lifelonglearning#neverstop
In our healthy beginnings room our children have been displaying a large interest in movement! Today the children used new resources whilst moving to some groovy tunes showing enthusiasm, responding to music, developing spatial awareness and having serious fun with their trusted educators! #lifelonglearning#pitttownpreschool
3 dagen Amsterdam om te leren samen met 20 andere ondernemers van Eelco de Boer. Ben heel benieuwd en er helemaal klaar voor... Wanneer investeerde jij voor het laatst in jezelf? Wat bracht het je? Heerlijk dat ik deze kennis binnenkort weer kan doorgeven in VIP-coaching! #lifelonglearning#business#entrepreneurship
Art is a process not a product 🎨
As our children progress into school and beyond, art continues to provide opportunities for brain development, mastery, self-esteem and creativity.
Expressive arts encourages creativity, assist with cognitive skills, opens opportunity for self-expression.
Lifelong learning starts here :) #lifelonglearning#pitttownpreschool #
Behind our vendor videos are cheeky students having fun with our camera crew. We love how kids are so curious and fearless all the time! Watch out for this big smile in the @codinglabasia video on our Facebook Page (Smarter Me)
Looks like a lot of equations I used to know from when I took the MCAT last. I wonder in what forgotten space of my brain they're lock away. Lord knows I've been filling my head with all sorts of new knowledge since then. Neuroanatomy being the most recent (cracked open my physiology text too). Am I the only one who feels completely at home studying? I go through withdrawals if I don't find something knew to learn about.
No matter how busy you are, never forget that your child's education is your responsibility. I understand that not everyone has the ability or resources to homeschool (that's a whole different story altogether). But then again, education is not only about knowledge from books. That type of knowledge can be easily obtained nowadays; just Google 'History of Malaysia" and you can read all about it in Wikipedia. 😉
No, it's the stuff that they don't teach in school that's more important.
Character. Perseverance. Grit. Determination. Patience. Independence. A sense of responsibility. The ability to overcome fear and failure. Financial knowledge. Just to name a few. These are the values we need to pass and impart on our children, right from a young age.
SKILLS MASTERY QUALIFICATION CHINA - SINGAPORE IMMERSION PROGRAMME 2017
Day 1 - 23 May 2017
How an aeroplane engine is repaired and overhaul was one of the highlights of a visit by business leaders from Chongqing, China. The group, organised by Human Capital (Singapore), was impressed by students learning aerospace maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) at the ITE Central in Ang Mo Kio.
The 50-odd delegates are taking part in the Skills Mastery Singapore Immersion Programme from May 23 - 26 2017
The time will come when you realize... "it's time to start my own business so I can feel good, build a legacy for myself and my family. It's time." I'm here @birkcreative with @rjovitababer helping with her and her wife's dream launch of Historic Homes Rentals. On a personal note, I'm cherishing my last few days at Wicker Park @platformcoworking, another small local Chicago start up business, a place where I quadrupled my client base. I am about to migrate my commercial office to be more mobile @google Chicago for the next six months so I can partner with them to help small underrepresented businesses in Chicago succeed and also so I can learn even more about Google products and services. #lifelonglearning#googledigitalcoaches#gybo#adwords
Over 275 school children toured the library last year. This group of first graders from Sandy Knoll came by yesterday. We also give free tours to college classes, clubs and other groups. You can schedule a tour with either the Youth Services Desk (906/226-4323) or the Reference Desk (906/226-4312). We do our best to accommodate.
O projeto nasceu a partir da observação de uma brincadeira diária dos alunos pelo espaço da escola: a corrida. A expressão "Me pega!", do título do projeto, é a frase que eles utilizam para iniciar a brincadeira entre os amigos e as teachers.
Com esse projeto, buscamos responder algumas perguntas como: "Porque corremos? Quem é o corredor mais rápido do mundo? Porque os animais correm? Qual o animal mais rápido do mundo?", além de brincar de correr e de formas diversas de corrida (corrida da colher, do saco, do sapato). Outra proposta de nosso projeto é ampliar os conhecimentos sobre artes através de propostas e releituras inspiradas no trabalho da artista plástica Regina Silveira e de instalações suas como "Irruption" e "Gone Wild" que propõem intervenções em espaços reais e mostram pés e pegadas que ultrapassam o limite do real, cruzam o espaço e literalmente sobem pelas paredes ✨
A diversidade de conhecimento nos faz ver mais amplo e faz nascer LÍDERES.
Seja Wish! Por aqui, conteúdo e muito mais. Porque o mundo está pedindo mais!
Spending the day in the library today. People always say they don't know how I do it.. just being in university and managing two jobs. Some days I agree because working two jobs, university, and working on a financial planning designation is tiring. I definitely miss out on a lot of things. But most days, I love it and I just feel proud of myself for how hard I work towards my goals. It's about finding that balance between my focus on building a better future but also still making time for my friends/family and a little fun once in a while! One year left and I will have my degree finished and my financial planning designation! #goals#igotthis#hardwork#hustle#proud#growth#lifelonglearning#studentlife
10 Ways to Improve and Invigorate Your Piano Improv Skills
If you're feeling "stuck" with your efforts at piano improv, try approaching it a little differently to playing fluently again. Here are 10 ways you can try:
1. Sing along with your improvised lines.
2. Learn transcriptions of your favorite solos.
3. Improvise with your left hand alone.
4. Piano an energetic groove and play a very SIMPLE solo.
5. Play very slowly and try to "hear" every note before you play it.
6. Work on your favorite music.
7. Play a short phrase or chord progression in all 12 keys.
8. Play with other musicians.
9. Practice a wide variety of music.
10. LOVE what you're doing. This is how you improve at an exceptional rate!
Have fun with these, and follow the link in my bio if you want some great left hand techniques. #piano#pianoimprov#pianoimprovisation#improv#improvisation#creativity#creativemusic#lifelonglearning#followyourdreams
Money is the motive... even in education. It's sad to say the least. However, I have faith that the collective consciousness of our world will shift to love being the motive. "You could earn $1 million more..." will turn into "You could impact 1 million people..." #lifelonglearning#education#paradigmshift
Yes we have a lot of fun, but don't let these smiles fool you! There is a lot of learning going on here at the Nedra Court Head Start upstairs classroom where the Meadowview FRC offers a free ESL (English as a Second Language) Course from 10-11 every Monday and Wednesday morning. 🏆 Congratulations, ladies, for being consistently dedicated to your language learning for almost a year! It's not easy juggling a family, life stressors and learning a new language. You are an inspiration to all of us at the Family Resource Center! #communityovercompetition#buildingunityinthecommunity
It's Tuesday which means it's date night! In case you didn't know I am married to the hunkiest truck driver East of the Mississippi 😍 One night a week we catch up on one of our current favorite tv shows. Tonight it is Better Call Saul ⚖️ If there is one thing I love slightly less than my husband it's tv!! Seriously, I could talk about The Real Housewives, Bob's Burgers, and Game of Thrones all day. 📺If I'm not watching tv, my nose is stuck in a book. I LOVE books 📚 My tat is the ambigram from Angels and Demons: earth, air, fire, water. The moment I saw it I knew it would be a perfect tattoo. I was a book dragon growing up which has always fueled my desire to be a writer 📝I fulfill my writing urge on my blog where I write about family, homeschooling, home management, and food! Any other fellow bloggers following today?! 👩🏻💻Or tv addicts?! 📺 Fellow book dragons 🐉?!
While improving my physical well being is a HUGE goal for myself in 2017, I also wanted to stay committed to learning new things.
For me this meant finally starting to learn code - for the personal challenge and to improve my skill set. Hoping to attend the next beginners workshop in my area for Ladies Learning Code!
I would love to hear some of your goals for 2017 😊
