The future of Education:
It can be seen as a question mark, related to the future of economy the
future of society and the future of culture combined all together into
the way we live and the way we learn outside school doors.
we are learning more outside school/university than inside. Yes, you
spend maybe 18 years in school and the rest of your life out side
school, so we need to think that the way we learn outside school, that
is a free way… Continue

[link to one of my pages].
It sounded an interesting concept and I contributed a few ideas (to the above page). However, the more I searched for concrete examples in… Continue

In last week's blog we begun a discussion about developing leadership whilst student's are learning. This week we explore, what John Maxwell calls "the quickest way to developing leadership".
F.F. Fourneis, in his wonderful exposition Coaching for Improved Work Performance, discussed four common reasons why people do not perform the way they should:
1. They do not know WHAT they are supposed to do
2. They do not know HOW to do it
3. They do not know WHY they do… Continue

Spring Break is right around the corner (some have already began their
mid-season vacations) and Kiwi put together a list of tips and faux pas
for both students and parents to consider during their holiday. A simple
Google search on 'Spring Break' will provide a myriad of pictures
displaying both young guys and girls, half naked and doing things that I
am sure most teachers and parents would not approve of. Of course not
all kids and teens will engage in the… Continue

Chaque individu a un intérêt de la psychologie. Comment pas si la psychologie nous entoure, là où nous regardons, là où nous vivons, là où nous pensons. La psychologie est donc une partie de nous et elle nous aide de trouver tout type de réponse aux questions qui nous concernent en tant qu’individus qui co-vivent dans une société commune. La psychologie est une étude continue consacrée à la nature humaine-le comportement et les processus mentaux qui nous mènent au se que nous sommes.

Before ever evoking the subject of Globalisation, we need first to say a word about Algeria. This great country is the gate of Africa. It is situated in the North central part of Africa opening her arms to the Mediterranean ٍSea, facing the European continent. She has also two wings “as France named them in the colonial period”. These are Tunisia which is the eastern wing and Morocco; the western one. Algeria’s back is all of the great, vague and rich African countries. Algeria must, then, be… Continue

EDUCATION IN TROUBLE
The move is on to create a four day school week. The idea is to increase the school day by one hour and reduce the number of days to four in an effort to save money and reduce more damaging cost cutting measures.
Many parents in effect use school as a baby sitting measure. They have to work. Now if you do not have school on a Monday or Friday what will happen? Parents who work and can’t afford a daytime baby… Continue
