Unicheck recently had a thrilling opportunity to interview Todd VanDuzer, an $85,000 scholarship winner, CEO and co-founder of Student-Tutor. He also has a 7-year unrivalled experience working as a tutor and SAT & ACT course developer.
Education has long gone digital. Educators successfully use online platforms to exchange feedback with their students, share assignments, plan their lessons or check for plagiarism. Nevertheless, there are countless free software options available online, using them still entails some hidden costs. Actually, average expenses can reach up to 3,000 dollars per teacher. The hidden fees are usually associated with some additional features or expanding the number of users.
There is a new milestone in the development of education now. Plagiarism is a pivotal problem many higher educational institutions face today. To use plagiarism checkers has become vital for the academic cheating detection. However, it is not the only challenge they should be ready to take on.
How does a good teacher look like? What qualities does he/she have? There is a big list of qualities, skills, and knowledge every teacher should have. Besides, every student may have their own image of a great teacher. So many men, so many minds.
Last week Unicheck officially started partnering up with the King Juan Carlos University located in Madrid, Spain.
The Spanish university has already obtained an annual license to use the Unicheck plagiarism checker and take academic cheating under control. 37,939 students of this university can now instantly scan their papers for originality and get accurate search results.
Modern educators should be more skillful than before. The world changes faster year by year. Such quick alterations force people to think in a different way. The most important is that people who work in other fields should keep up with times. Teachers are those who cherish a new generation and give them all skills and knowledge required for modern life. Therefore, teachers should obtain those skills and knowledge, otherwise their teaching methods are not effective.
Project study learning (or project-based learning, briefly referred to as PBL) is a new educational trend. This is a teaching method which is designed for students to help them get knowledge and skills by investigating and responding to complex questions or challenges in a certain period of time.
In addition to self-taught learning, adaptive learning is also growing in popularity. It is a computer-based educational system. The key idea behind it is that it helps present materials according to student needs and achievements.
Since adaptive learning is a computer-based educational method, it requires some special software to be applied. Such software has many features, like tracking skills, instant feedback, personalized tips and an amazing interface, looking like a computer game!
