The "High 5" Elevator Pitch Worksheet, Connie I. Reimers-Hild 2011 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

The "High 5" Elevator Pitch Worksheet, Connie I. Reimers-Hild

Kimmel Education and Research Center - Faculty & Staff Publications

Great elevator pitches are created to sell something in 30 seconds or less (the time it takes to go from the first floor to the top of the building in an elevator). Think broadly about how a great pitch can help you. Great pitches can be used to market or sell anything from yourself as an individual to your business or community. Great pitches are clear and compelling. They make memorable impressions of whatever you are pitching and create a foundation for building relationships, clients, sales and investments!


Higher Education, Shelley Kinash 2011 Bond University

Higher Education, Shelley Kinash

Professor Shelley Kinash

While university is challenging for every student, some learners find the difficulties nearly insurmountable. International students from non-English speaking backgrounds have difficulty understanding what their teachers are saying. Matureaged students struggle to maintain energy levels while balancing study, family, and work. Students with learning disabilities are confused by lengthy and complex readings. Students with sensory impairments such as blindness and deafness find many online resources inaccessible. There are as many more examples as there are students
of diversity.

Iccs 2009 International Report: Civic Knowledge, Attitudes And Engagement Among Lower Secondary School Students In Thirty-Eight Countries., Wolfram Schulz, John Ainley, Julian Fraillon, David Kerr, Bruno Losito

Julian Fraillon

The International Civic and Citizenship Education Study (ICCS) studied the ways in which countries prepare their young people to undertake their roles as citizens. ICCS was based on the premise that preparing students for citizenship roles involves helping them develop relevant knowledge and understanding and form positive attitudes toward being a citizen and participating in activities related to civic and citizenship education. These notions were elaborated in the ICCS framework, which was the first publication to emerge from ICCS (Schulz, Fraillon, Ainley, Losito, & Kerr, 2008).

Trial Of The Engagement Matrix: Component 1: The Effectiveness Of Labels. Report, Petra Lietz, Mollie Tobin, Sarah Buckley

Dr Petra Lietz

The Engagement Matrix (EM) was designed by the Department of Education and Children’s Services in South Australia to measure engagement levels of students enrolled in the Innovative Community Action Networks (ICAN)/ Flexible Learning Options (FLO) program once a term. Innovative ICANs work with young people (year 6-age 19), families, schools, community groups, businesses and different levels of government to encourage young people to finish their secondary education. Flexible Learning Options (FLO) was first introduced in 2006 as an enrolment option in ICAN schools which is funded by DECS. FLO is an approach that is more flexible than the traditional ...

Dr Wolfram Schulz

The 2009 IEA study of civic and citizenship education (ICCS), conducted in 38 countries around the world, built on the previous IEA studies of civic education, but took place in a context characterized by significant societal change, including the rapid development of new communication technologies, increased movement of people between countries, and the growth of supranational organizations. The data gathered from more than 140,000 students and 62,000 teachers in over 5,300 schools during the course of the study offers information that countries and education systems worldwide can use to inform and improve policy and practice in civic ...

Digital And Media Literacy: Tapping Into Popular Culture, Renee Hobbs 2011 Harrington School of Communication and Media, University of Rhode Island

Digital And Media Literacy: Tapping Into Popular Culture, Renee Hobbs

Renee Hobbs

It’s something every principal understands: when teachers have low expectations of their students, they may rely on lecturing, explanation and recitation, over-controlling classroom interaction, and summarizing texts on behalf of students. But when teachers develop and implement curriculum ideas that are predicated on students as active, engaged, and independent learners, great things can happen in the classroom. Teachers who are already using news media, popular culture, and digital media to support academic achievement in language arts, science, history, and the arts are discovering the power of connecting students’ digital learning skills to fundamental practices in analysis, evaluation, composition, reflection ...
