Hi! I am new to this sub and I apologize if this is too new in the game to post here as I am not currently enrolled in school.
I am looking for advice on the best way to obtain a degree and apply for financial aid.
My previous college experience was about 5 years of directionless community college. I was quite ignorant of what I was doing and had little direction as to what I wanted to do. Basically, I was taking classes to please my family. I would often sign up for courses and quit going early in the semester. Without withdrawing so I had many Fs. I worked a little to retake courses I failed but abandoned that route. It has been 15 years since I last went to college. I took only courses I was interested in and ended up with too many psychology courses that many wouldn’t even count. I have followed up with a casual interest the field of psychology and know that much of my course material is outdated.
My question is, can I abandon my previous experience and start over or do I need to correct all my past mistakes by repeating the courses?
Also- does anyone have any advice as to what online colleges are respected? I am interested in becoming a substance abuse counselor and also entering the nonprofit sector in the substance abuse field.
I admittedly am very technically phobic, which has stunted my career aspirations but I am extremely motivated to achieve goals for the first time in my life. Any input is appreciated and I am very green so no worries if you have basic advice that one could assume I already know.
I live in MN and am a single mother who is almost 40. I do not have much family support regarding childcare so I am thinking online is my most achievable route, but if there are options I am not considering, let me know!
Thanks for reading and if there is a better sub to ask, I will move this. Thank you!
Hello, All! Sorry for a the strange title. My mom is from a foreign country and although she's been in America for awhile, she still has a lot of trouble learning to read and write. I always feel like crying because she gets so distressed and becomes so discouraged (and calls herself horrible names) because she can't read or write. She goes to ESL classes but it's not helping and she isn't comfortable asking for help. I really want to help her and she wants me to as well. How would I go about teaching her? I think we'd have to start at the beginning (ABCs, phonics, etc) Thank a lot guys. It's my mission this year to get her atleast to a first grade level
EDIT: Also, I'm not a teacher. I'm just a 20 year old, avid reader.
Hey you! Have you completed an online or MOOC course? Great, because I need you! I am writing my thesis on online learning and peer to peer interactions, I would really appreciate it if you can fill in this short multiple choice survey based on your online learning experience. It would greatly speed up my graduation process and in return I give you my unconditional friendship. Many thanks in advance!
Hi there, as the title says, I was "homeschooled" thru high school but did not do any sort of classwork. I'd like to go to college, so I told my mom I was looking into getting my GED and she said she created a notarized transcript for me. I'm not sure what the next steps are for me. Any ideas?
Friends Some time ago I read an article about UNESCO listings six main literacy that if you want to be known as a modern citizen, you should have a good amount of knowledge about those six main literacy So I searched and I find so little about them part of my search was about Digital Citizen, and I found this video in the search If you know other resources that can help me with this, please suggest them I mean everything about digital literacy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nrcFZXwSNOY
We are considering buying these chairs (link below) for our language lessons and I was wondering how other schools have found their experience of using them. My concerns are mainly about comfort and the size and position of the table.
I have an advanced degree in education but, like most programs, it was focused on P-12 education. I would like to learn more about pedagogy and curriculum for adults learners, what are some good textbooks/resources to start with?
Anything particularly new/cutting edge/exciting in the world of adult ed?
