Make Your Room as a Dissertation Writing Service

If you are having trouble writing your dissertation, there may be a few factors that come into play. First, you may not be interested in the dissertation writing, which means that you should try some dissertation writing services instead. Second, you may not have time to write all your dissertation chapters, leading you to ask for help and buy them from online dissertation writing services. That is all well and good, but some students cannot afford themselves to buy dissertation chapters online.

The best thing you can do for yourself in this situation is arranged your space to allow yourself to write dissertation better. Even if you are pressed for time writing a lot of assignments, being in a serene environment can help you work faster and better. Instead of looking for dissertations online to buy, try to settle your space first.

College dorm rooms can be a disaster zone, especially when you or your roommate are messy people. This is not a conducive area for studying and you can’t always pull all-nighters at the library anyway. Don’t get us started on expensive coffee shops either. So what can you do? Here are our tips.

Why go out when you can stay in to write your dissertation?

1. First of all, you need to clean.

Before you can rearrange anything in your room, you need to tidy up first. Let go of everything that you do not need. Take photos of loose notes and look at them through your phone or laptop instead. Throw them away. Do the same for any materials that are placed on paper. Recycle them instead. Otherwise, throw all memorabilia that means nothing to you. If you think it looks good, ask your roommate. If they say no, throw it away.

2. Next, you need to organize.

After you achieved a clean space, it is time to maximize the heck out of it. Adjust your desk to receive natural light from the side. Not from the front, because it causes distractive glare from outside. Not directly behind you, because it can block the light that you need. Even if you have a lamp, natural light lets you study better during the day. Categorize your study materials and put them in a specific place. Never put anything else in their place.

3. Lastly, you need to noise control.

You cannot tell the world to shut up, but you can shut your ears. Invest in noise-cancelling headphones. There are cheap ones on the market, but you should maximize them as much as possible. Do your best to avoid any distractions that you do not welcome. Even if you listen to music, make sure that you like it when you are studying. Choose a genre that lets you study the best. If possible, ask your roommate to be as quiet as possible when you study.

If none of that works, you may need to check for some online dissertation writing services because you will have a hard time writing on your own. Otherwise, you can just leave and find a quiet place to study every night.

For the best decisions collaborate!

Having been a project manager for many years, Ive long believed in and experienced the power of diverse-group decision making.

Inevitably, teams of people, each bringing their unique perspectives to the table, come up with better, more complete, more creative and more successful solutions.

In the educational realm, I think everyone has been off trying to come up with solutions by themselves educators, administrators, District management, Government Ministries.

Why is it that we don’t talk to each other as much as we could? From the outside, I get the sense that there’s a bit of that leave it to the professionals attitude.

Is it too much effort to try to coordinate schedules? Are we worried that it takes too much effort to include people uninvolved in the day-to-day operations of our schools? And then they cant add value anyways? After all, what do parents know about what it takes to run a school? Or a District? And what do students know about what they really need from education?

And its hard to have completely open conversations and doors because that might expose your weaknesses, or open things up for criticism. We are, often by nature, defensive we want to put our best foot forward, not parade our challenges and weaknesses out for all to see! Do we really want the world to know that we don’t know how to solve a problem? Doesn’t everyone expect the experts to have all the answers? And really, doesn’t everyone have enough to do without opening another can of worms by asking people their opinion??

But are we sure that external partners don’t add value? Why would we think that kids are incapable of contributing to solutions about their own education? Another quote from Starbucks is that the person who sweeps the floor should pick the broom!

How much effort is it worth to come up with solutions that work? What if we had increased odds of finding successful ideas that everyone is invested in and working together on?

What if it resulted in kids engaged in their own learning? What if they were excited to come to school to learn and create and work together?

What if parents felt involved and knowledgeable about what was going on in classrooms? What if they were passionate about supporting their children’s teachers? What if they could support and reinforce at home what their kids are learning in school?

What if teachers felt trusted and safe to make mistakes in their own learning and change efforts? What if they felt supported and valued by the parents instead of judged and attacked? What if they already had relationships with all the parents in their class and could easily call one up to discuss their child’s learning without it feeling like cold calling someone you don’t even know (and who doesn’t want to hear from you!)?

What if Principals had time to build the team and the learning community relationships instead of being overwhelmed by the myriad of administrative tasks that swamp their days? What if they could do the same thing that they used to do with their classrooms (encourage, support each child’s learning, coach, bring out the best in everyone)?

How much more powerful would that make our education system?

And, as a result, how would that change education (having something taught TO you) into learning (participating in the learning process and learning WITH you)?

The way I see it, we can keep complaining about how the Government just doesn’t get the whole picture.

We can complain about how they just don’t understand that you cant measure successful education using standardized tests.

We can gripe about how the teachers not helping MY child and nobody cares.

We can shake our heads at all the parents who never even come to parent-teacher interviews.

We can work all hours just trying to get all the forms filled out, the lockers assigned, the reports completed, the is dotted and the ts crossed.


It takes more effort, but isn’t it worth it?
For them?

Recognizing Opportunities

I’m a big fan of Dave Sands, a principal and inspiring human being. His message about kids, social networking and internet safety is so down to earth and grounded! He reminds us that, although the technology has changed, what kids are looking for and our parental need to stay connected with our kids hasn’t!

I dont think he has a blog yet Maybe one day!

In the mean time, I came across an article (http://cuebc.ca/2007/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=83&Itemid=35) he wrote about recognizing a learning opportunity with WebKinz stuffed animals. From talking to Dave, I know that hes used this program with a few classes now with great success. I love it because it takes what kids are already interested in (or should I say obsessed with??) and uses that engagement to teach them valuable lessons about life and safety!

I think learning is always powerful when you’re having so much fun that you don’t even realize you’re learning!

And Dave does that so well!
