Tips re Passwords Your passwords protect your accounts, files, and email, and, by extension, the university's computer system. Do not tell anyone else what your password is. When selecting a password, choose one that you will remember, but do not use obvious ones that others can easily figure out like your name, address, or your pets' names. Secure Passwords One of the most important parts of an account is the password; your accounts (including the local accounts on your machine) must be secure. Remember, your system, no matter how inconspicuous, is part of a vast public network.

Helicopter Parent A helicopter parent (also called a cosseting parent or simply a cosseter) is a parent who pays extremely close attention to a child's or children's experiences and problems, particularly at educational institutions. Helicopter parents are so named because, like helicopters, they hover overhead. Origins[edit] The term "helicopter parents" is a pejorative expression for parents that has been widely used in the media. The metaphor appeared as early as 1969 in the bestselling book Between Parent & Teenager by Dr.

World Electricity Standards Link to original web page: There is no standard mains voltage throughout the world and also the frequency, i.e. the number of times the current changes direction per second, is not everywhere the same. Moreover, plug shapes, plug holes, plug sizes and sockets are also different in many countries. Those seemingly unimportant differences, however, have some unpleasant consequences.

Rewiring the Brain to Heal Neuroscientists estimate that it can take as little as a tenth of a second to notice a threat—an aggressive face, for example, but much longer to recognize something pleasant. This is compounded because threats are reacted to virtually instantaneously and go straight into memory, where they are held on a hair trigger, ready for instant recall, while positive experiences take far longer to sink in. This is why we tend to learn faster from pain than from pleasure. The old saying “Once bitten, twice shy” describes the phenomenon perfectly. It is estimated that it can take five pleasant experiences to balance a single negative one of equal magnitude.

Differentiated instruction Differentiated instruction and assessment (also known as differentiated learning or, in education, simply, differentiation) is a framework or philosophy for effective teaching that involves providing different students with different avenues to learning (often in the same classroom) in terms of: acquiring content; processing, constructing, or making sense of ideas; and developing teaching materials and assessment measures so that all students within a classroom can learn effectively, regardless of differences in ability.[1] Students vary in culture, socioeconomic status, language, gender, motivation, ability/disability, personal interests and more, and teachers need to be aware of these varieties as they are planning their curriculum. Brain-Based Learning[edit] Differentiation finds its roots and is supported in the literature and research about the brain. As Wolfe (2001) argues, information is acquired through the five senses: sight, smell, taste, touch and sound.

Watching UK TV Overseas A common question we get asked is about the best way to watch UK TV from your house in Turkey. With this in mind, we asked Neil, who manages UK TV Access to write up a quick article summarising the options available, without requiring a 3m Satellite dish! First, some history... Currently UK TV licensing dictates that only people resident in the UK can view TV stations online, hence if you are outside the UK, you will get an error, and the "stream" will not play. In case you're wondering, when your computer is connected to the internet your connection is given a unique number (or IP address), computer systems can use this IP address to detect the rough location of your computer (to give you an idea, of how this works, visit the link HERE).

Live Dates — Jeremy Hardy Jeremy Hardy Live Dates Share this: The official website of Jeremy Hardy © 2016 | All rights reserved Special Education Special education programs in the United States were made mandatory in 1975 when the United States Congress passed the Education for All Handicapped Children Act (EHA) in response to discriminatory treatment by public educational agencies against students with disabilities. The EHA was later modified to strengthen protections to people with disabilities and renamed the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). The federal laws require states to provide special education consistent with federal standards as a condition of receiving federal funds. IDEA entitles every student to a free and appropriate public education (FAPE) in the least restrictive environment (LRE).
