Article | May 18, 2021

We spend between 24 and 25 years of our lives working, so it would be remiss to think that the learning stops when you step out of education. On the contrary, at the rate of technology and change it’s clear that upskilling yourself is vital to adopt new skills. Growth, after all, is essential for your career progression, as well as personal growth. But what is upskilling, how can it benefit you, and what’s the deal with digital learning? In this feature we’ll examine this and more. Upskill meaning Upskilling is an investment in yourself (or an employee) to advance their skills, education and learning. It can be undertaken by an individual, or a company, to better further their growth.

Article | May 18, 2021

The universal tier is the curriculum, instruction, and assessments that we provide to all students in a grade level in school. This is the instruction that’s guaranteed for all students to receive.Our universal tier instruction typically focuses on grade level standards for our state and school. Schools use universal screening data in order to identify the effectiveness of their universal tier. There are two primary questions that schools ask as they’re doing this work. The first is if 80% of their students are successful. Schools typically use 80% criteria because they have resources to intervene with about 20% of students. If they have more than 20% of students who need additional intervention in order to be successful, their resources may be strained and they may not be able to provide intervention to all of those students.

Experts suggest that 80 per cent of our future jobs will require maths. So can we ignore the fact that women are significantly under represented in professions related to science, technology, engineering and mathematics? Recent education research in New Zealand has revealed a significant difference in the way girls and boys engage with mathematics. According to a TIMSS report, more New Zealand Year 5 boys were very confident in mathematics, while more Year 5 girls were not confident in mathematics. It’s our job as educators to find ways to encourage girls to pursue mathematics and foster a love for the subject. One way to do this is by connecting classroom maths with our learners’ real-world environments, showing them that maths is relevant to the everyday activities they value and love.
