I got a feeling..


Are you feeling down, unhappy, sad that things are not going the way you want? 

Fret not, sometimes all you need is a step back to explore similar perspectives, troubleshoot, then approach your problems with a grateful, thankful, happy heart.

Today is going to be Awesome! Don’t you agree? I woke up to see this picture by Nature Photographer and my BFF, Adeolu of CepitMomento Blog, and instantly I affirmed today is going to be awesome. 

For I,

For YOU,

Because we are all UNIQUE beings in our small world. 💋

10 reasons why eLearning is essential for students!


Great Post.

On an e-Journey with Generation Y

Technology has the power to transform education. It is essential to bring it into the classroom to empower learning. Why?

  1. Students need to be engaged with what they are doing to improve learning outcomes – See technology engages them.
  2. Enables students to become thinkers/learners/risk takers in a sheltered environment.
  3. Learn not to rely on the teacher…be accountable themselves…become independent!
  4. Teaches digital literacy.
  5. Valuable employable skills in a digital world are learnt –appropriate online behaviour, good digital citizenship, cybersafety, plagiarism, working with virtual teams, self discipline in a virtual world, digital and global entrepreneurship, globalization etc eg  
  6. Broadens the horizons of many students as it exposes students to the world outside their city or country town.
  7. Fits in with Rural Education where students in small rural schools need no longer be disadvantaged by distance and isolation, as technology allows them to learn virtually and maintain their subject choices, allows eg…

Embracing Failure: Here’s My CV of Academic Rejections


I engage in public speaking with youths on using ICT as a tool for self empowerment and the first question i get is how do i make money, i always wonder if it is wrong for me to tell them they would most likely fail at their 1st attempts or not, sighss! Anyway thanks to Jessica for this post, how do we succeed if we don’t fail, in failing and learning to plan and strategize, we become better and then become the greatest.

A few days ago on CNBC, I saw this article on a problem especially rampant in academia, and one that I’ve talked about on numerous occasions: the perception that successful academics never fail in their work. Every manuscript is accepted! Every grant proposal funded! Jobs are thrown at them. This (mis)perception is very much in line with one of my primary streams of research on how people engage in impression management/identity curation in digital spaces. On social media, this is often framed as FOMO (fear of missing out)—we see everyone around us living glamorous social, work, and family lives while we sit at home on a Friday night.

In academia, this framing of success can be problematic at multiple levels. First, for students just starting out, they may not be properly prepared for dealing with failure—which is more common than success on several metrics. If they assume success, the failures…

8 Important Principles of Good Writing You Should Master


I absolutely agree with this post….Perhaps we have gotten so carried away with slang words and short-forms that we have forgotten the principles of good writing, however here is a quick reminder. Cheers.

Soft Skills Studio

ID-10021140 Writing is like building a neat structure from scratch

Chatting, Facebook, Twitter, Watsapp – we have such quick and wonderful ways of keeping in touch! But, convenient as they are in chatting up with friends and family, they have definitely taken us far, far away from principles of good writing. We are so used to expressing ourselves in shortcuts that I wonder when was the last time any of us attempted to write a complete sentence. Or use complete words in that sentence. Thanks to formal means of communication, the principles of writing still need to be adhered to.

THE DILEMMA OF AN AFRICAN WRITER


#ProudlyAfrican

ROOKIEPENCIL

When I first heard about Leti Arts I could not help but enlighten my friends about the rising African creative industry, for those who were courteous enough to listen I  discovered they were amused at the thought of African Superheroes and it did not take long for me to realize that many of my peers were of the belief that a game of African origin would definitely be of inferior quality .

Leti-Arts-620x330.png

Since then the situation has improved but nonetheless it is still quite difficult to pique the interest of individuals especially since we are on a continent that is blinded by the misconception that implies all that games, animations and comics are good for are entertainment.

The unfortunate fact remains for many, superheroes and games from outside the continent are welcome while produce from our very own backyard is not even given face, after all the Supermen and Spidermen…
