Functions of mass /social media in the Nigerian society

Image
FUNCTIONS OF MASS/ SOCIAL MEDIA IN THE SOCIALIZATION OF THE NIGERIAN CHILD Mass/Social media sites allow children to accomplish certain tasks that are considered important to them such as staying connected with friends and family, making new friends, sharing pictures and exchanging ideas. On the other hand, social media participation also can offer young children deeper benefits that extend into their view of self, community and the world. This becomes more beneficial if adults get involved with children and guide in the use of media through visit to quality websites by engaging the use of educational software and view of TV shows that offer extra learning opportunities. We can sum up the functions of Mass and social media as: · Mass/social play important role in influencing the behavioural standard of children.· Media provide news and information required by the children.· Creative skills can be developed via social media, imagination, art, music and modeling skills can be developed u…

Implications of mass / social media in socialization of Nigerian child

Image
IMPLICATIONS OF MASS /SOCIAL MEDIA IN SOCIALIZATION OF NIGERIAN CHILDThere is no doubt that the impact of the mass/social media on children lives is broadly considered within what is referred to as "media effects" debate which to a great extent focuses on the potentially negative impact of the media on children's lives: video violence, gambling, educational performance, mass consumerism, etc (Miles, 2000). The effect of mass/social media violence has been an issue of public concern almost from the inception of television in the early 1950s. The negative implications of mass/ social media on child socialization cannot be overemphasized as it has harmful effects on social and behavioural patterns life of the children. These are most pronounced when children concentrate on programmes of violence, crime and mystery on TV or social media. Terrifying programmes may affect the general physical condition of children by producing nightmares, nervous tensions, loss of sleep and p…

Roles of Social Media in our society

RECOMMENDATIONS From the study it was observed that mass/ social media plays a significant role in shaping the social behaviour of children as a result of the deluge of programmes they are exposed to. However, the influence of these programmes is insidious. They cannot be hindered from consuming these programmes, nevertheless, the following recommendations should be taken into consideration in order to minimize its negative influence on the children social behaviour;· Mass/ Social media programmes with high positive social values should be emphasized, while the negative social values should be de-emphasized. It has been noted that in most of the programmes that the children are exposed to, it is the negative values that are mostly portrayed, while the positive values are at the background. The cultural norms theorists' are of the view that through selective presentation and emphasis on certain themes in the media especially television, facebook, youtube and audience get the impress…

The Education Mindset

Go To Home
THE EDUCATOR'S MINDSET SERIES: THE ONLY ANSWER TO ALL QUESTIONS IN EDUCATION The answer to all questions in education keeps pointing me back to one thing; LEADERSHIP. Now right away, a teacher may see this and think that I am saying that they are not as crucial in the work that is done every day in the classrooms. In fact, I believe that the very opposite is true. The work of the teacher in the classrooms is the most significant thing needed to serve students (obviously). But is their (teachers) ability limited because of the culture of the school, the superfluous "extras" that seem to bombard teachers and limit their time to do what is essential, and the lack of meaningful professional learning? I have seen far too many administrators blame their teachers for the lack of moving forward. Similar to a teacher blaming a student for not getting good grades, if you try the same approach and continuously get poor results, perhaps it is not the person that you are …

Parents let us be careful and always check the content of our pupils bags or shoes

I wish to express my anger and total disappointment in some Parents. 
How can a parent drop a child off at school without running a proper check on uniform, shoes and content of the bag? How? 
I'm totally disappointed in the kind of mothers we have today.  
A child came to school with scorpion in her shoes. Yes you heard me right!!! "Scorpion in her shoes". This happened in the class before mine.
This child is Just in year 1 (grade 1/primary 1). She came to school in tears,and was dragged down from the car all the way to class by her mum. The mother refused to offer any reasonable explanation and only said "don't mind her, she is being naughty, she doesn't want to come to school and is only using leg pain as an excuse".  In class, this child kept screaming at intervals while crying uncontrollably. She didn't participate in the drills as she came a little bit late. She didn't even touch her test paper either, she kept on screaming while her classmates …

LEADERS MAKE THEIR FOLLOWERS BELIEVE IN THEIR LEADERSHIP

LEADERS MAKE THEIR FOLLOWERS BELIEVE IN THEIR LEADERSHIP


I checked up on studying leadership few years ago and there is a truth that touched my heart.

People don't quit organizations they quit people.

If you find yourself in a situation where you have to always change your teacher's every term, then something is wrong with the leadership design of your school.

If your leverage of getting your members of staff to take action is delaying their salary, then there is something wrong with your leadership influence.

It's beautiful when you walk into a school and the see the mission and vision statement,

But the truth is you can never separate the leader from the message he/she delivers

Every message that people receive is filtered through the messenger who delivers it.

You cannot separate leaders from the causes they promote.

You must run your organization is such a way that your followers buy into you and also buy into your school

That means they like you and t…

SHINA PETERS VS JIM OVIA
In 1990, Shina Peters built a house with N20 million naira; the same year Jim Ovia started Zenith Bank with the same amount.
Today, you and I don't have a room in Shina's house but I have an account in Jim's bank and probably you do too.
Shina's house was built in Iju Lagos and remains there till date. Jim's bank started in a corner and now has over 500 branches in Nigeria, and many international branches.
Millions upon millions transact business in Jim's bank daily. Shina's house is becoming dilapidated...in 2015, he SPENT more money to renovate the house and bought a Nissan Pathfinder with N10 million...additional liability, while in the same 2015, Jim's bank MADE a profit of N105.7 billion. 
Zenith bank employs hundreds of thousands, and feeds their families.
This is the difference between Assets and Liability. If you buy a car for N20 million today, in 20 years time, you will be ashamed to drive it. On the other hand, if you invest …

So strange about forty

This question got to me this morning and I am looking for someone to help unravel the answer . If you have time answer me Why Noah made the Ark in 40 days, why the rain/storm lasted for 40days, Why the Israelites walked through the desert for 40 years , Why the tower of barbel was built in 40 days, Why Jesus Christ fasted for 40days, and He ascended to heaven after 40 days. Why Easter is celebrated after 40 days. And they say Life begins at 40.   Even Pass mark starts at 40. And they also say "A fool @ 40 is a fool forever".   What's so special about 40? If you don't have an answer, please send to others we might get an answer.

Dr Stephen Mak treats terminal ill cancer patients by an "un-orthodox" way and many patients recovered.
Before he used solar energy to clear the illnesses of his patients, he believes on natural healing in the body against illnesses. See his article below.
It is one of the strategies to heal cancer. As of late, my success rate in curing cancer is about 80%.
Cancer patients shouldn't die. The cure for cancer is already found - *its in the way we eat fruits.*
It is whether you believe it or not.
I am sorry for the hundreds of cancer patients who die under the conventional treatments.
*EATING FRUIT*
We all think eating fruits means just buying fruits, cutting it and just popping it into our mouths.
It's not as easy as you think. It's important to know how and *when* to eat the fruits.
What is the correct way of eating fruits?

Every child is important.

What is your school policies on debt recovery and fee prompt payments

Image
Priorities and school culture.
Most parents owe because the school culture permits it, the school has no firm policy on payment of school fees and dues, even if they have they are not firm with it thereby giving the parents room to owe them.
Despite the economic conditions I know a lot of private schools that as at the 2nd week of resumption they already have 90% payment and the remaining 10%is usually accounted for before the end of the 3rd week.
What is your school vision?
Do your parents share your school vision with you?
Do your parents believe in your vision?
What type of school are you running?
Do you still as a school owner collect your fee yourself?
Give them reasons why they shouldn't owe.

Top 3 strategies for dealing with unpaid school fees

*Top 3 strategies for dealing with unpaid school fees*
1. Address Defaults Early with Parents

Parents are almost always able to meet Private School Tuition Fees at the start of a student's enrolment. However, the circumstances of parents can change very rapidly, and may not occur with any malicious intent of the parent.

A default in Tuition Fees may arise out of other difficult family circumstances, including an unexpected redundancy, family law proceedings or increased medical expenses to address a serious illness. These circumstances usually also have an effect on a student's education.

Picking up on a default early, and maintaining open and frank discussions between the School and the parent, allows for alternative suitable agreements to be put in place.  These documents do not prejudice the strict legal rights of the School or College if they are conducted on a "Without Prejudice" basis.

For example, if a parent is in default due to increased legal spend as Family Law…

What type of person are you

Image
*If numbers in Mathematics where given an opportunity to speak I think some where going to accuse zero and one . Because any number that is multiplied by zero gives zero. Zero will bring down numbers to nothing.There are some people in life who are like number zero, if you associate with them no matter how great your value is they will bring you down to zero. How about one. Any number multiplied by one remains unchanged nomatter how big it is. There are people or doctrines in life which are like one in that no matter how they touch your life you remain the same you don't grow, you dont improve you remain at the same level. So here is the twist, what kind of person are you? I pray that God helps us grow and be greater than 1 so that when we touch the lives of others we add value. Sometimes it's difficult to be greater than 1 because you may be tired, or afraid or angry, in that case just stop and pray, ask God to make you greater than 1 in Jesus Christ. Amen*


Asset versus Liability

*Asset vs Liability* 
One day, the son of a rich man, who was an undergraduate, approached his father and the following discussion took place. Son: Dad, may I speak with you? Dad: Go ahead. Son: Among all my classmates, I am the only one without a car. It is embarrassing. Dad: What do you want me to do? Son: I need a car. I don't want to feel odd. Dad: Do you have a particular car in mind? Son: Yes dad (smiling) Dad: How much? Son: $1600 Dad: I will give you the money on one condition. Son: What is the condition? Dad: You will not use the money to buy a car but invest it. If you make enough profit from the investment, you can go ahead and buy the car. Son. Deal. Then, the father gave him a cheque of $300. The son cashed the cheque and invested him in obedience to the verbal agreement that he had with his father.
Some months later, the father asked the son how he was faring. The son responded that his business was improving. The father left him.
After some months again, the father asked him about his busi…

They joined the class and attended the lectures for two years after which they all sat for an external examination. Flabberg…
