The Day I Got Set On Fire (Metaphorically)
Do you ever wonder how it felt when Prometheus rose to Olympus to steal the fire of the gods? Was there a rush of power? The stomach-lurching feeling of slipping over the edge of a roller-coaster, feeling momentum take control?
The Philosophy of Unschooling, A New Way Of Learning
No homework. No rules. No teachers. No tests. There is no typical school day for the Olsons, a family of six from Massachusetts. On any given day, the 15-year-old twins could be researching theatre costumes for their acting program, while their 12-year-old daughter, who is passionate about fitness, could be training on the ninja course she built in their backyard.
Why You Should Visit Grad Schools Before Applying
Grad school is an investment. Even if you land a great scholarship, you’re still investing your time. Yet for most of us, it’s an investment of both time and money.
I raised $10,000 for my autonomous education during a pandemic
In 2016, I joined a sciences, technologies, engineering, and maths program in the middle of 4-year university. Overtime, I became sick, overworked, tired, and decided that I didn’t want to go directly into a PhD program as the STEM program required.
No Subject Line
“These young people” I sighed after reading the second request for an extension. The e-mail messages came in weeks before the first day of class and before the student even saw the syllabus. I reply politely, make sure I can log in to all the University’s systems and start writing my presentations. Later in the day I commiserate on Facebook with my fellow college instructors about how annoying these young people are; were we like that or did our teachers like us because we weren’t like that? How long will it take for these shenanigans to go from amusing to downright enraging? Its all fun and games, until a parent starts to stalk you because their brilliant child is barely earning a C in the course.
One Skill That All The Teachers I Have Met Lack
I’m a diligent student putting in constant effort to get good marks in my school in India. Our summer vacations are over, and the new academic session has started today. Due to the tremendously devastating second wave of COVID-19 in India (and the expectancy of the third wave), it is my second tough year of online lectures.
Editing Your Language Quirks
Recently struggling to polish my prose, an outline emerged from the word salad, a problem. I was repeatedly creating sentences which sounded good to me but were lousy English. These bastards finished with all the action, the accent, the “oomph” at their tail ends. My heritage language had stepped on my English; I had been writing with a German word order. Once I understood why I wrote this way, I stopped doing it.
How Vocal+ Fills My 'School Days' Void
School Days The pencils to sharpen. The textbooks to carry. The lockers to decorate. The bleachers to kiss under. The bell to wait for. The bus to shit talk on.
What is Online Hate?
Over the last years, it’s an increase in reporting a rise in bias and bullying behavior in and out of digital space. Every 30 seconds, a woman, somewhere, receives an abusive comment on Twitter (Amnesty International). 73% of students are saying they have been bullied in their lifetime and almost 50% say it happened last 30 days. Ok, all friends joke around with each other, but occasionally it’s hard to tell if someone is just having fun or trying to hurt others. Sometimes they will tell “just kidding”. But if the joke has gone too far and continues even after you’ve asked the person to stop that is bullying. As the matter of fact, people say much more hateful and vulgar things online than they would say in person. There are hordes of digitals online ready and willing to tell a young girl or boy that she/he is fat, ugly, dumbass, etc. Or to make racial or religious stupid comments. Is it ok to be cruel, just because people are “vulnerable snowflakes”?

How To Combat COVID-19 Misinformation Online
This article was previoulsy published on Dr. James Goydos' Medium. Technological innovation is a wonderful thing. With the advent of the Internet and the proliferation of search capabilities, we now have more information than ever thought possible at our fingertips. The benefit of this availability of information, however, it not without its costs. Like many things, it can be seen as a double-edged sword. It is how we choose to use it that makes the difference. In a time where tens of billions of search queries are made in a year, it is important we take note of how these technologies are being utilized. Studies indicate that search results can influence decision making. From harmless decisions like who to buy your laundry detergent from, to more life-altering decisions such as who to seek out for medical advisement, search engine results make a lasting impression. And can spell the difference between life and death. In the times of the novel coronavirus, access to reliable, valid and verifiably true data is essential. Unfortunately, with the proliferation of search and social media, there has been a rise in misinformation which leaves many vulnerable to access to inaccurate and downright dangerous information. From data which falsely advocates drinking bleach to kill the coronavirus to those which falsely suggest the means by which the coronavirus can spread, the misinformation can have dire consequences.
