What are Private School Loans?

What are Private School Loans?

Everyone has the right to a good education. However, many people feel that only the rich can afford this right. Regrettably, many of us are still incapable of providing a decent college education to our kids. For this reason, money issues remain to be a barrier for a person to land a good career in the future.


Fortunately, there are ways to solve money problems. Students can take advantage of scholarship grants or a loan. Just make sure that whatever you decide to apply for, you are well informed of the rules and interest rates affixed to the loan.


What are Private School Loans?


Besides Perkins and Stafford loans, students can apply for private school loans to assist them in paying for school expenses. These are credit based funds that students can use to finance their education expenses.


What are the benefits of private school loans?


In reality, not all of us can pay for a good college education. Nowadays, it is good to see that private school loans provider are becoming more flexible and versatile.


What you need to know before applying for a student loan:


True enough, getting the money for college is a piece of cake, since lenders are becoming less stricter to borrowers. However, make sure that before you apply for a loan, you also had tried applying for all the free money. These include grants and scholarships offered by different colleges and universities. Yes, if you're eligible for grants and scholarships you wouldn't think of applying for a loan.


On the other hand, you can check if you're eligible for federal Stafford loans also. They are offering very low interest rates and you get to enjoy the delay repayment for this kind of loans. Besides, this is one of the most popular loans for the reason that your credit standing is not really that important with them as long as you pass their criteria.


On the other hand, you can also apply for Parent Plus Loans. These are federally sponsored for parents of undergraduate. Attractive benefits await those awarded of this loan.


Just remember that before you apply for a loan, make sure that you are well informed of what you are signing up for. True enough, knowledge is important to achieve financial freedom. Be knowledgeable about the risks and benefits in loans. Handle your money effectively. Always remind yourself that loans are made because you need it for college education tuition fees and other school expenses like books and room/lodging. Do not waste it on non educational expenditures like shopping and leisure.


Finally, try to talk to your creditors about your situation and find out if you're eligible for private student loans. This could be your best bet. As much as you don't like to owe anything, education is still a good investment.


A piece of advice, getting loans for education is good, because you're actually venturing for your future. However, make sure that you use the money wisely and study hard so that you'll be able to repay your debts on time!

It feels good to be showing your school spirit especially if you're really proud of your school. Wearing apparel with your school's name, logo, or emblem is also a great way to show your support when you're rooting for your school's team in a basketball, football or any kind of inter-school sports competition or intellectual match.

Aside from wearing jackets, shirts and bags proclaiming their school origin or preference, they also have school banners in their rooms and on their cars' windshields (along with the bumper stickers, of course). Even those who have already graduated still carry this habit with them to the corporate world. We see office cubicles that banner various school paraphernalia, including mugs, notebooks, pens, paperweights, and even mini sculptures of the school mascot.


There are those can't get enough of the given school merchandise that they still have additional materials and products made to order. Along with the popularity of the digital age comes the demand for school-bragging electronic-related products and accessories such as laptop bags, iPhone covers and cases, mouse pads, optical mice, among many others.

What's Next For Teachers After Webstreaming and Video Podcasting? A School Dedicated TV URL Channel

What's Next For Teachers After Webstreaming and Video Podcasting? A School Dedicated TV URL Channel

Remember the early 1980s. It was the introduction in many schools of the BBC B computer. Wow, it was certainly impressive but it now seems so dated. I recall the teacher at the time asking us to imagine what we thought the classroom of twenty years time from then would look like. The class came to a general conclusion that teachers would be replaced by a BBC B computer wheeled into teach each lesson. I certainly liked this idea as at least the computer would never give detentions.


Our idea of computers taking classes seems wildly out but actually looking closely we were not too far away. You see, classes today continue to be taught by 'real people' but look at the effect that computers have made in helping people to learn. For those non-academics twenty or more years ago would surely have benefited from the internet, where they could learn at their own speed.


Webstreaming


Webstreaming, video podcasts, the internet have all come into education today but exactly where will technology take us say in twenty years time? Who knows but I what I do know is that schools can now set up their own virtual schools. I'm not talking about the website 2nd Life here, I'm talking about each school having its own tv channel on the web. This could be the place where lessons as videos and video podcasts could be delivered through one dedicated tv URL channel. You think that webstreaming would make a TV URL channel too slow? Well actually no. The fact is that a channel is very easy to set up one and can be updated by teachers in real time.


For teachers using this new technology lessons could be recorded, either in video or audio format, and placed on one of these channel. It means that those children who are not too fast at picking up information in a traditional education way, could be going back to the lesson and watching it again in their own time. Webstreaming and video podcasts are great but now it's time for educators to sit down and seriously consider this latest internet technology with its many benefits.

School Blogs Can Revolutionize Schools

School Blogs Can Revolutionize Schools

School blogs can transform virtually every aspect of school life. I appreciate that's a bold claim but I'm going to back it up with some illustrations. I am also going to show you how easy it is to set up a complete school blogging platform with no technical knowledge whatsoever.


Before I go any further though, let me define what I mean by school blogs. Although blogs may have started out rather like online diaries, software such as WordPress (yes, it's a version of WordPress that I am going to recommend) is quite capable of creating complex websites incorporating multimedia elements. The WordPress platform makes the production of engaging content as simple as using a word processor, allowing users to focus on content. It also allows readers to interact through comments and this is one of the main reasons why school blogs can be so powerful.


So think of a blog as an interactive personal website.


What I am suggesting is not that the school has a blog but rather that everyone IN the school has a blog - teachers, students, administrators - even parents. Here are some examples:


# Lessons - let's imagine a teacher, Mr Geography. His next few lessons will cover the Amazon jungle. So he transfers an outline of his lesson plan to a blog post and adds in some images, a couple of videos from YouTube showing some Amazonian wildlife and links to the National Geographic website. For homework, the students will visit his post, possibly leave some comments, and then create their own posts answering the questions he set. (Don't worry, there are many ways to stop plagiarism.)


The students have thus had a much richer and creative experience than simply reading a text book. Their work will remain online for future revision. It can even be made public and form part of a showcase of what students are achieving. Not only can this inspire children, it is a wonderful way for parents and grandparents to share in a student's progress. This increased involvement can have many dividends in fundraising.


# Sports - the latest results and performances of the school teams can be shared online through reports, photographs and videos. Again, a much broader community can share in the school's activities.


# Special Interests - this is a broad catch-all category for all the other activities that students may engage in, from dance, drama and music (reviews of theater visits, progress on their own productions etc.) through to IT, photography and debating clubs, The blogs of participant students help their development and publicize what they are doing to a wider audience. The school becomes a much more vibrant place.


# Field Trips and Holidays - parents can be kept informed of what is happening and the whole experience enriched and captured for posterity through blog entries.


I have only hinted at some of the incredible possibilities for using school blogs. I would like to emphasise a few points. Firstly, most of what is produced is almost a by-product of current activities - this is a different way of working rather than extra work. Secondly, much of it is created by the students themselves. Finally, despite the stunning results that can be achieved, this is actually very easy to implement.


I mentioned the WordPress platform earlier. There is a mutli-user version of WordPress, WPMU, that provides the basis for my recommended approach to school blogging. If you are considering how to set up school blogs with maximum effectiveness and ease-of-use, I would suggest an out-of-the box solution incorporating a number of plugins. This will allow you to focus on the benefits the system can bring rather than spending days tweaking  settings to achieve an inferior solution.
