Being a millennial, goes beyond to a DOB (date of birth), it is more about how much we are being adapted to new trends and technology.
I feel like adapting to technology has become mostly a survival skill. If we do not learn how to use technology, our capacity to communicate, increase our network and even getting a job might be in danger.
Being a millennial also means being confident and more open minded. I know our kids will be more diverse. New generations are already developing more tolerance to people and situations.
I really enjoyed the multitasking exercise that we did in our GEDI class; it helped me to realized about the difference between mental and physical multitasking, the former does not improve our performance ( I thought it did) , and the latter is sort of automatic and mechanical ,something that we (women) are used to do .
Being dyslexic does not really help me in multitasking ; however women are genetically programed to multitask, WAIT A MINUTE… THAT IS A WRONG STATEMENT!! women are socially and culturally required to multitask !
I have always complained of how the feminist revolution has backfired on us. Women, please, do not get me wrong; I do appreciate the fact that now we can vote, access to education, work outside of our homes and many more rights that we have won.
I feel like women have increased their work load and the society expect way tooo much from us (women are mothers, wives, housekeepers ,gatekeepers, caregivers, professionals and still need to look forever fit,young and beautiful).
I will never get tired of saying education….education….education is the key for almost everything! I am sorry if I talk to much about education and health, I just can’t help it!!!
It is important for students that plan to be professors to see the impact of their teaching in their students. Professors have many responsibilities, but also have a social duty : creation of a better society.
It is not a surprise to see that a higher educated person has a higher salary and also a better health and quality of life, it is like a domino effect (although someone can perfectly argue that no all people with Masters or PhD degree get a good job).
Access to education is a global problem, in developing countries getting K-12 education is still an issue while in most places of U.S is not. More information about “Higher Education in the Developing World” here.
Higher education at international level offers a higher degree of difficulty. Developing countries have very few public universities, therefore either you have a very high placement and/or standardize score test to get into public universities or have money to pay a private one. Unfortunately, this same situation is suffered by some people in U.S, something that is not expected in an industrialized country with so many community colleges and state universities.
Education is important to keep and/or improve the quality of life and status in a society. In a capitalist country as U.S education plays a bigger role in the economy, if we know that why our school funding looks like this?:
