DescriptionMany children and young people with poor school performance have a negative attitude towards study, as well as demotivation and unsuitable habits. But it is required of students an increasingly autonomy in learning, although what is intended, in the background, is to develop in these capacities necessary so that they can continue their lifelong learning.In this sense, it is important to know the various structuring and dynamic components in the educational situation, and how they influence each other. The conscious reflection on these dynamics is what allows parents, teachers and educators, in general, to help children, teenagers, and even adults in the learning process, and in learning with autonomy and self-critical capacity, thus obtaining satisfactory results along that route and also throughout their adult life. Learn more in Self-regulation.Chapters Learning Strategies Conscious Reflections Pedagogical Assumptions Adaptation to Learning Self-Learning Study Techniques PreviewLearning Strategies Strategies are always conscious and intentional, aimed at a learning-related objective, whereas techniques can be used more or less mechanically, without a learning purpose by those who use them. This means that the techniques and methods can be considered elements subordinate to the use of strategies. Learning strategies are located at a very distinct level of the techniques of study. It is not a question of providing the pupil with a number of resources to succeed in some tasks, but rather respect the operations or mental activities that facilitate and develop the various school learning processes. Through these, you can process, organize, retain and recover the informative material you have to learn. Each time we plan, we regulate and evaluate these same processes as a result of the objective previously clarified or required by the specificities of the task.

Description Teaching in China is surely one of the most surreal experiences anyone can have. When I arrived in this country I had no idea what I would encounter. I knew nothing about the culture, the people, the costumes or even the political and economical situation. I had never visited Asia before and never had Chinese friends either. So, I can clearly say that it was one of the most shocking and complex experiences in my entire life. And this is a book that will show you why. Chapters First Impressions Life Inside a College Campus When They Hate You Consequences of Mass Brainwashing Chinese Cruelty Against Lecturers How the Chinese Communists Insulted Me Lack of Respect and More Insults China Behind the Mask The Tiananmen Protests Must Restart Preview First Impressions  The first thing I noticed when arriving is how much the Chinese smile. I still remember entering my classroom for the first time and seeing all those asian eyes starring at me as if I was a super star coming to that country just to teach them. Flashes from mobiles were coming from everywhere. They just love the foreigner face. So much that I felt very weird when, apart from having the female students saying I’m very beautiful (what I don’t think I am) having a male student saying the same. Either he was or not one, the truth is that homosexuality it still a tabu subject in China, a country with very likely, the biggest gay community in the world. They are so afraid to be seen, or appear on pictures, spread all over weibo (their facebook, very often used to humiliate people inside the culture) that you can barely notice where they are or who they are. Many get married, due to fear of social repression and family rejection, even though never having sex with their own wives during their entire life. […] Files When you...

DescriptionChild Education has been a subject of debate for many thousands of years but also widely studied in modern society.Apart from all the studies being done, children apparently tend to show much more problems related to behavior and learning.The need to find answers hasn’t provided parents and teachers with functional knowledge, but only an immense quantity of books and magazines dedicated to the topic.The information and guidance provided in this book resumes more than 12 years of the Author experience as a Teacher and Professor in Europe and Asia with multiple and different subjects, and in levels ranging from Primary Schools to Universities, a background of extensive and intensive investigations on Learning Disabilities for Private Schools with highly positive results, but also experiences as a Director for Training Companies, among many others.Known for providing significant results in situations that the Psychologists claim to have no answer, such as ADHD and Autism, as well as in turning ‘F’ students into ‘A’ students in a matter of weeks, what the Author here promotes can be seen as polemic and contradictory to modern theories on Education while also proven highly efficient. Chapters The beginning Conceptualization Systematization Expression Perspective Compassion Punishment Reward Life purpose Intelligence PreviewThe beginning In the beginning of our growth we develop the ability to learn by movement; that’s babies, once they start to walk, enjoy running and touching objects. The development, however, doesn’t stop here. The conceptualization of space, density, time and movement, all are learned with the movement of our body. That’s why it’s so important to introduce children to the use of shapes, design and color, as well as stimulate them in such way. Most toys we see nowadays, by presenting a clear purpose, offer no space for the application of these principles. Kitchen tools for the girls, robots and guns for the boys, are among the most common.

DescriptionOver many years, I've analyzed dozens of books from various sources. I began by reading much of the literary editions promising immediate results, mostly from authors with background in psychology, offering memorization methods and concentration techniques, but nothing seemed to work.They didn’t work because were based on common sense, such as studying in quiet and well-lit locations, and also because, largely, they exposed scientific models of approach originating in the same social irrationality that was creating students with learning difficulties.In a society that considered the necessity of concentration as a fundamental and differential principle in the ability to learn, everything that was presented on learning followed the strengthening of that same social fallacy.The works on Learning Disabilities available on the subject of learning appeared and appear to not consider what for society in general is not real – learning as a mental and emotional apprehension of reality. A forced retention of reality is promoted in our minds, as if it was possible to learn what you cannot comprehend, experience or apply with autonomy. [...]Chapters The Purpose of Education Learning Difficulties Learning Experiences The Ideal School PreviewThe Purpose of Education The conception of education as a means of social ascension, eradicating poverty and minimizing violence, has given school a primordial role that is valued at national and international level. However, reality does not tend to be concomitant with the official speech, as a selective function can be observed in the school that favors the emergence of a hierarchy between individuals and reflects the social structure. In this way, we have witnessed a contradiction of realities - proposed and made. The result was reflected in an attempt to promote only values matching those of the present social structure, thereby perpetuating the pre-established hierarchies. School education thus plays a role of "socialization", contributing to the internalization, by the individual, of society’s values and, at the same time, of a selective differentiation between them (Parsons cit....

Description4 Simple Rules to Stop Bullying starts from the principle that the phenomenon of bullying is not new or related merely to schools, but rather a problem that has always existed and must be acknowledged as something related to the whole education and social system.Teaching children about how to deal with bullying is important for their whole life and can change their future, while increasing their probability of obtaining a happy life. Following such paradigm, the book focuses on the application of four principles to deal with this issue from different angles, and more precisely parenting and teaching. These four principles are mutual respect, self-esteem, equal needs and basic rights, as well as the golden rule of “onto others as to you”. They are used here “as tools to promote compassion and acknowledgement.This is a book intended to guide parents and teachers in dealing with this problem with a creative mindset, helping in not just solving the problem in itself, but also contribute with better values for the next generations.Chapters Perspectives Respect Self-esteem Equality The Golden Rule Applications Punishments Shock-therapies Measurements A Story about Bullying PreviewPerspectivesThe phenomenon of bullying must be analyzed under different perspectives, taking into account that each one will demand a different behavior as a response:Parents: It’s a fact that bullies or their victims are developed mainly at home, while the school is the environment they find to express their nature, either with or without their parents approval. Regarding the approval, it’s meant here the acknowledgment of the situation. Because many parents do allow their children to continue being victims of abuse, by not knowing how to deal with it or disregarding the issue, and there’re also parents that actually promote bullying behaviors in their children as a way to raise their own self-esteem.

DescriptionOur life consists in a permanent quest for a more uplifting and rich experience. We love to travel, listen to music, talk to others, and mostly create.We all love to create something, either a family, a business or an impact on society with what we do. We desire respect, recognition and appreciation.And, this is why we love to be praised, admired and receive gifts.All these things contribute to our evolution as a human being, as a species and as a spiritual being, and that’s why they all directly affect our IQ.Although others have divided our brain in IQ, EQ, and many other Qs, they are all connected.Therefore, although we may separate our brain in parts for a more specific analysis, it would be unwise and unreasonable to try to judge someone’s IQ without taking into consideration his emotions and lifestyle, because they affect our IQ, but foremost and above anything, our decisions.The way we make decisions is affected by our IQ level, and that’s why the IQ test is so important in recruitment processes.

DescriptionThe world is changing rapidly, as well as the way we think and live. Meanwhile, while changes occur in the way we read, communicate and interact, absolutely nothing evolved regarding the educational system. Students are showing much less interest and motivation to learn nowadays, and we tend to attribute such phenomenon to some kind of mental disorder or laziness, not realizing that both emotional and physical reactions reflect a new social tendency.Studies applied on children with Attention Deficit Disorder have shown that emotions, particularly associated with metacognitive abilities, have a very important role in helping them develop cognitive patterns and assimilate information, so why do we insist in medication? But more importantly, why doesn’t the educational system changes?This system has been created to promote a governmental ideal for our society, therefore, everything that is implied for our children and young adults to learn matches this paradigm.Those that resist fitting such model will not be praised as educational movies tend to show, but rather ridiculed, discriminated and rejected. This applies to both teachers and students, in which one fears being differentiated by grades and the other fears being differentiated by pears and lose a job.

DescriptionAcademic writing is the term used for scientific papers written to show an objective stance, organized in such a way that they can easily be replicated by others. And, although many assume that an academic paper must take the form of a thesis, this isn’t always true. Academic documents include a wider broad of papers, such as the Book Report, Conference Paper, Dissertation, Essay, Research Article, Research Paper and Technical Report.Another element to academic writing that few know about is that, in any give topic and under any methodology, the author or authors, must assume a stating point, a perspective exposed under the form of a hypothesis. Ultimately, any paper starts with a subjective approach, an assumption, that is then tested and verified, proved or disproved.Furthermore, a research paper is always based on documented data reviewed about a certain topic, in order to justify itself as a new step towards a better understanding, and not merely a repetition of previous discoveries. This new step, however, doesn’t need to be intended forward, and can merely refer to a new perspective about something previously studied or known.
