As a student, this semester has been challenging to say the least. We’ve officially become the Zoomer generation with remote classes taking over our lives. Distance learning has put school on hard mode for many of us and it’s impacting every aspect of our education. Turns out concentrating while your cat walks across the keyboard and your parents bicker over holiday plans in the background is not very conducive to learning. Even under ideal conditions, Zoom university is not the same as school IRL – and our GPAs are paying the price. But things are not as bleak as they seem and a positive attitude can be all that is needed to turn the rest of your semester around!
4 Things To Be Grateful For…
Be Thankful for Teachers
School in the Corana-verse is not just hard for students. Teachers and professors are struggling as well. Believe it or not, sometimes our educators do not have it all figured out. Mix in the uncertainty of hybrid teaching and remote lessons and instructors are as lost as the rest of us. Despite the uphill battle they are facing, teachers around the world have gone the extra mile this semester for their students.
This Thanksgiving be sure to give thanks to any awesome teachers in your life. In an era of extreme uncertainty, they’ve taken on the unknown head-on to continue providing us with lessons and care that makes a difference. At Numerade we have a family of thousands of teachers and professors who create our great lesson videos and we could not be more grateful for them.
Be Thankful for Technology
It was not that long ago that the technology to support remote learning was impossible. Today live streaming sessions are a viable option for the majority of students with access to high-speed internet. Even for those without it, recorded video lessons like the one’s on Numerade are able to fill in the gaps – on the go via mobile or at home. Once upon a time, when a lesson was over, all you had was your notes to help you with homework and studying. Now resources like Numerade can reteach you the material, explain topics you don’t understand and walk you through your homework all from home. Virus proof education has arrived just in time.
Be Thankful for Cash and Savings
The World economy has faltered and student’s wallets have taken a big hit. Tuitions and tutors have remained pricey even as jobs and pay for student’s have dissipated. At Numerade we decided to take a stand for students hurting financially this year. That is why our Study and Win giveaway has made such a huge impact in students’ lives and why our scholarship program continues to grow! The more students we can help earn a buck or save a buck while getting smarter and improving grades, the closer we get to our goal as a company. (Watch out this week for our biggest money-saving deal yet on Black Friday, it will knock your socks off!)
Be Thankful for the Future
It is times like these that cause personal growth. Overcoming the adversity we are all facing right now is going to make the rest of school and entering the professional world a piece of cake. COVID will pass, this semester will too – for those of us who take school seriously and push ourselves, an amazing job and life is just around the corner. Get there quicker by fast-forwarding your current class or catching up on material you’re struggling with by joining one of our academic bootcamps. These are the perfect finals prep courses!
Give thanks, reflect on how good we all still have it and spread the positivity. Heading into finals season and winter break your outlook on things can have a huge impact on how you perform the rest of the semester!
