Schools With Amazing Sports Facilities in Nigeria

Grade-conscious parents tend to question the rationale for sporting activities in schools; Little do they know that the benefit of sports in school isn’t merely physical. Sports has been identified to play a major role in building the self-esteem and mental alertness of a child; it is a constitutional part of a child’s life.

The Case for Sports in Schools

Of course, a child should study hard to excel in examinations, this, however, should not be to the detriment of enjoying the health and vigour of life which engaging in sporting activities provides. All work and no play makes the proverbial Jack a dull boy. Children who actively participate in sports have been reported to exhibit increased social relations and higher self-esteem.  Sports, therefore, meets the physical, emotional, social, physiological and intellectual needs of learners. Through play, children are able to relate to their unacquainted world and gain the desired experiences.

3 Simple Steps to Managing Your Time More Effectively

With table loads of paper works, long list of interviewees, unending complaints from parents and an obvious need for more self-development, many school owners would be happy to have more than 24 hours in a day. Beyond school leaders’  obvious need for time management, teachers also require better time management strategies in coping with the complexities of the 21st century classroom and learners.

Source: The Economic Times

Human beings and computers alike share the challenge of how to get as much done as possible in a limited time. Over the last fifty or so years, computer scientists have learned a lot of good strategies for managing time effectively — and they have a lot of experience with what can go wrong. Here are three simple steps to managing your time effectively as an educationist adapted from Brian Christian insights on how to make the most of our own lives.

 

1. Prioritise

Source: Prior Education

Some tasks may not be urgent but they are very important. Other tasks may be important but if ignored because they don’t seem urgent, the result may be counter-productive. For instance, you may decide to finish drafting the school timetable before attending to visitors. This is because every other activity in the school will be held to ransom if the timetable is not drafted whereas, only a few individuals will be affected by the delay in attending to visitors.

 

2. Schedule

Source: winnipegyouthsoccer.com

In the TED Education video below,  Computer scientist – Brian Christian discussed how spending more time on prioritising and scheduling your task leads to getting a lot more done faster. Computers schedule tasks before processing them and that is why they’ve turned out to be more reliable than most humans. Therefore, never start your day with tasks, start it with scheduling.

 

3. Eliminate Interruptions

Source: iPhone Life

When computers move from one task to the other, they have to make a context switch which involves moving existing data out of its memory and moving new data in. The lesson from this is we get less done when we keep moving from one task to the other. Reducing interruptions can significantly increase productivity. Another good way to achieve this is by turning off notifications. For instance, you can insist that all phones are silent during meetings. You can also refuse to attend to any visitor or complaints during your personal study hours. What happens is you will work more deeply even if it means less broadly.

 

Summary

Just as the computer manages interruptions by grouping notifications based on how long they can wait before being attended to, prioritising, scheduling and managing interruptions will not only enable you to get more work done but also enable you to feel completely in control of your time.

 

 

6 Marketing Strategies for Schools

The education industry is increasingly becoming more competitive. More people are investing in staffing, facilities and operations making it increasingly difficult to stand out among other schools. Here are 6  ideas for preschool and schools adapted from a post by world-leading education strategist – Tausif Mulla 

If you are planning to start your own preschool or looking for a franchise you need to keep in mind the below points before starting your own venture.

  • Pricing
  • Quality of teaching
  • Brand recognition
  • Activity calendar
  • Communication skills of teachers
  • Location & transportation
  • Facilities
  • Hygiene standards
  • School policies
  • Support Staff
Tausif Mulla
Associate Faculty & Marketing Specialist at Westford University

Tausif Mulla while interacting with parents conducted a study with a sample size of 50 and these results validated a similar parent survey conducted by SchoolsCompass late last year.  From these results, it is evident that parents consider the quality of teaching, school brand, pricing and activities as the key parameters before selecting a preschool or high school. Now that we know the key parameters while selecting a school so let’s learn about influencing factors that result in conversions i.e admissions.

It was discovered that the most influencing factor while selecting a preschool and school are relatives. Most parents discuss their child’s performance with their relatives and friends which result in the selection of an XYZ school. Now that we have learned the parameters and influencing factors that help parents to make their decision let’s discuss the strategy that you as the preschooler or high school can consider in your marketing plan. 

 6 Strategies for a preschool & higher school

 

 

1. Don’t SELL, Educate Parents

Source: Linkedin

If you are thinking that you can sell to parents you are wrong. Gone are the days when the school used to be the dictator today the customer (parents) are dictators. Today’s parents are well informed and educated, so if you think you can sell the admission you will burn your hands. Parent’s need to be educated about education and its importance. As a school, you need to have a concern about the child’s education more than the parents only then parents will make the decision in your favour.

2.  Don’t fall into PRICING traps

Source: speckyboy.com

 One of the most common mistakes schools do is, falling into pricing traps. If you are providing the high-quality education you can demand higher fees. In Nigeria, most schools do the opposite. We provide average quality and ask for higher fees.  Focus on providing quality, streamline your process, improve your delivery, hire highly qualified teachers and interact with your parents very often. If you do all these and your customers (parents) are part of this, your school will never have a struggle in its profitability.

 3. Awareness Program Initiatives

 As part of your marketing strategy, your school should always be in the limelight for supporting some cause. For example, start a breast cancer awareness initiative and run campaigns around it. This initiative should be a part of all your communications (online & offline).

  “If you don’t Stand up for something then you will fall for anything” – Malcolm X

The above saying perfectly goes in marketing as well. As a brand, you have to stand with a cause and concentrate your marketing activities around it.

4.  Position your school as One Stop Solution in Education

Source: WP Daily Themes

 If you are an established player in education you should definitely use this strategy. In my study, I realized that once parents take admission in preschool their concern is about admission to the higher school for grade 1.
If you are a chain of schools, make sure you are positioning your school as one stop for parents. Parents are concerned about donations, admissions procedures, interviews and so on. As a preschool, you can have a strategy wherein if the child takes an admission in playgroup or nursery and continues with the preschool for Lower Kindergarten (LKG) and Upper Kindergarten (UKG) the child will get direct admission into the high school i.e the parent school.

 If you are a startup preschool then you need to have tied up with an external school/schools. This will increase your conversions as parents will rest assured about the admissions for the higher grade.

 5. Use a REFERRAL service

 

You can increase your enrolment leads beyond your brand popularity by being referred by other trusted brands. This could be feeder schools, religious associations, community network or education agents. Beyond this, more parents are depending on online referral services given the ease and reach it provides. SchooslCompass.com.ng currently records over 15,000 monthly visits and provides referral services to parents daily. To enjoy priority listing in referral services, upgrade sign-up and upgrade your membership today.

6. Engage with Parents 

Source: Hyperbot

If Digital Marketing is not part of your current strategy you might lose your customers (parents) over a period of time. As per Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, the third level of the pyramid is the need of Love and Belonging. Your customers’ i.e parents have the need to be social and connect with one another. In today’s scenario where social media has become a part of our daily life; as a school, you cannot ignore the opportunity to connect with parents on these mediums.

 Have a social media marketing strategy where your school is engaging with your customers on daily basis, answering their queries and communicating with them. You can make your weekly post calendar and update it on all your channels starting from Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Pinterest, Instagram, and blogs. For example, every Monday your social media will talk about Do’s and Don’ts

 

Conclusion

As Seth Godin says “Make your product/service REMARKABLE”. In education, your customer is the parent and your consumer is the child so plan your strategy accordingly.
These are some of the strategies which you can include in your current strategy. If you have some more creative ideas please comment below.

5 Interesting Reasons Parents Gave For Withdrawing Their Children From Schools

At our last company retreat, we decided our priority was to ensure we deliver value (enrolment leads and top-notch education services) for schools on our platform. To do this, my role became more marketing than operational. I had one week to complete the development of a marketing strategy for my company and the entire team was waiting. Given that at SchoolsCompass, Research and Relationship are core in our value system, I was sure no amount of embellishment would make my marketing strategy accepted unless it was backed by research and based on relationship. As a parent-driven company, I decided to get help from the thousands of parents who visit our platform.

So I conducted an online survey and scheduled physical meetings with some parents who called back to shower encomium on us out of several others we help find schools daily. The feedback from the interview and online survey was interestingly insightful. While my marketing strategy is still near-completion, I believe sharing few feedbacks from these parents is a greater service to our beloved proprietor and proprietors.

One in every three parents admitted they’ve changed the schools their wards were enrolled at least once in the last 3 years. The reasons parents gave varied from academic performance of their wards to change in school policies and of course household incomes. However, there were several other reasons I find interesting. Here are some reasons that you may not the thinking of and might be affecting your school(s).

 

1. Grade vs Performance

Before now, parents were more concerned with the grades their wards brought home at the end of the school term. That trend seems to have ended as parents are now more concerned with how knowledgeable their Wards are compared to others of their age and grade.

A parent mentioned that she removed her daughter from the school she was enrolled because she discovered that her daughter struggles with distinguishing between figure “9” and letter “p”.

Although the report card stated that her daughter is doing excellently well, she believed the school couldn’t help her.
Parents confirmed that they would prefer low grades with better performance rather than high grades with poor performance.

2. Unprofessionalism by Staff

With every school week comes increased fondness (or the opposite) between parents and schools (both academic and non-academic staffs). This ordinarily is a good situation for schools but when not managed properly, could really lead to a skewed parent-school relationship. A parent narrated that she removed her child from a creche she was enrolled in because as at the time she brought her child (around 6 am) the teacher who apparently lives close within the school was still in her night wears. Another parent removed her child because she met a staff shouting at a child who was complaining of pains in the arm. A careless word by teachers or some form of unacceptable mannerism can lead to eventual withdrawal from the school.

 

3. Poor Attention to Details

Parents usually fail to recognise that there are several other children in their child’s class. The expect a one-customer relationship between them and the school. Because of this mindset, many parents find it hard to forgive schools when little details about their children are missing. From switching toys to using the wrong water-bottles, giving students the wrong workbooks or even calling students the wrong names. Parents want to feel prioritized, they are happy to know the school considers their wards just as special as they (parents) consider them as well. The goal for school here is to ensure enough attention to details is given within and outside the classroom.

 

4. Other Students’ Influence

Schools are micro-communities where every child is exposed to being influenced positively or negatively by others. Parents reportedly withdrew their kids from schools when they discovered there was a classmate who had a negative influence on them. Beyond classroom instructions, parents are also concerned about the hidden curriculum taught by the school. A parent removed her child from a school because the child’s properties were being stolen by classmates. According to her, what was lost wasn’t so much of a concern rather, the fear that her child would grow up thinking stealing is normal.

Some schools have suffered a mass withdrawal of students because of a single bully. Schools are to ensure that every child is protected and every negative Influence by other students or staff is immediately addressed.

5. Communication Gap

Several parents expressed concerns that schools do not listen to their feedbacks. In some cases, the person receiving the feedback is not a senior personnel in the school; Consequently, the feedbacks are not acted upon. Worse still are schools where there are no feedback mechanism or channel.

Parents don’t just want to be treated as customers, they want to be stakeholders in the school.

In fact, parents envy what other schools are doing and have millions of ideas they want to share.

 

Summary

I’ll stop here so I can round-off my marketing strategy, I’m still speaking with more parents and we are currently analysing more survey submissions. We are preparing a report for our School Search Survey exclusive to Parents and SchoolOwners registered on SchoolsCompass.

 

 

7 Reasons Why Your School Should Teach Coding Today

Education-is-the-passport-to-the-future-for-tomorrow-belongs-to-those-who-prepare-for-it-today._-Malcolm-X

The best system of education is the one that prepares learners for the workplace of the future. According to international acclaimed teacher Brian AspinallFuture-ready students need to be creative. They need to know how to communicate their ideas and how to collaborate as problem solvers. To master these and other twenty-first-century requirements, they will need to be critical thinkers.

According to Techopedia, coding refers to creating computer programming code. Coding, in the simplest of terms, is telling a computer what you want it to do, which involves typing in step-by-step commands for the computer to follow. Code powers computers and computers power many everyday objects like phones, watches, microwaves and cars. In fact, almost anything powered by electricity uses code.  Here are few reasons why your school should teach students how to code today. 

 

1. It Makes Students Active Learners

Image Source: SchoolsCompass Coding Club

 

Active learning”  according to Teaching Commons means students engage with the material, participate in the class, and collaborate with each other. In a coding class, students don’t simply listen and memorize; instead, they demonstrate a process, analyze an argument, or apply a concept to a real-world situation. With coding, your students become content creators rather than consumers as they are empowered to express themselves in really cool ways.

 

2. Coding Improves Academic Performance

According to Tynker, Coding significantly improve the learning of key subjects such as Mathematics and Writing. Children who learn how to code finds it easier to visualize abstract concepts in a Mathematics class; This consequently lets them apply math to real-world situations and makes math fun and creative. Also, kids who code understand the value of concision and planning, which results in better writing skills. 

 

3. Coding is Another Form of Literacy 

Just as “Must be a Computer Literate” became a key phrase in every job advert, coding is set to be another form of literacy everyone will be required to have very soon. According to Jan Cuny – Program Officer, National Science FoundationAll of the today’s kids will need—along with reading, writing, and arithmetic—a basic understanding of computation and the role that it plays across a wide range of disciplines. Coding teaches storytelling with games and animations; It is a new type of literacy and will be a large part of future jobs.  will.i.am – Musician/The Black Eyed Peas and Entrepreneur advocates that  starting at 8 years old,  Children should learn to read and write code.”

4. Coding Engenders Creativity and Confidence

Kids learn through experimentation and strengthen their brains when they code, allowing them to embrace their creativity. Parents enthusiastically report that they’ve noticed their kids’ confidence building as they learn to problem-solve through coding. Because learners are required to bend, join, break and combine code in a way it wasn’t designed to, coding affords them the opportunity to take risks and fail safely which builds innovation and self-reliance. Susan Wojcicki – Senior Vice President, Google believes that If we want our young women to feel empowered, creative, and confident as adults, a great option is to expose them to computer programming in their youth.

5. Coding Builds Valuable Soft Skills in Learners

Source: Tynker

 In today’s world where adverts and notifications are ubiquitous, and reduced attention span is causing more accidents than ever before, learners naturally develop better focus and concentration as they write more complicated code. They also develop problem-solving and critical/analytical thinking abilities which will make them excel in whatever profession they choose. In the words of Nicholas Negroponte – Founder and Chairman Emeritus of MIT’s Media Lab once shared that “Programming allows you to think about thinking, and while debugging you learn to learn.”

 

6. It Prepares Learners for the Future

Computer science opens more doors for students than any other discipline in today’s world. Learning even the basics will help students in virtually any career—from architecture to zoology. Salman Khan – Founder, Khan Academy  believes that To prepare humanity for the next 100 years, we need more of our children to learn computer programming skills, regardless of their future profession. Along with reading and writing, the ability to program is going to define what an educated person is.

7. Parents Love It

80% of parents want schools to teach computer programming, and students love it. A poll organized by TechGen Africa research team found that 8 out of 10 parents want schools to teach computer science so children grow up not just using technology but learning how to create it. According to a mum, with any other co-curricular activity, like baseball camp, you get a great reaction from people, but when you say your son is learning to code … it’s a bit of a different stare!

How to Make Your Students Pay Attention

The holiday has just ended and most students haven’t been in the classroom for a while – Long weeks of video games, partying and traveling is now beginning to give way to reading, analysing, memorising, solving and several other learning-related tasks. It is such a hard time to be a teacher as many learners will prefer spending the next few weeks talking about the holidays if not reliving their adventures or enjoying their precious gifts.
 

Helping students pay attention in the midst of this frenzy is the task of every seasoned teacher. Here are few simple but effective ways to get your students to pay attention.

 

 1. Acknowledge the Learners’ Experiences

CITY OF KNOWLEDGE ACADEMY
 
Yeah, we all know visiting Santa Clause (or Father Christmas) isn’t a big deal neither is visiting the village anymore spectacular (especially if you grew up in a suburban area like me). But to the learner, it is no small thing. Meeting Santa Clause is as grandiose as a dinner with the pope and that random traveling experience feels just like a tour of the moon. Teachers need to be truly empathetic in order to tolerate the learner’s amusement. So the first thing to do here is to acknowledge the learners’ experiences as worthy distractions.
 
THE BELLS COMPREHENSIVE SECONDARY SCHOOL
Acknowledging the feelings of the learners helps them to feel understood. It also enables teachers to keep their ego and desire to lecture in check.  In order to acknowledge the experience of the learners, teachers should communicate the intent to listen and be also sensitive to the emotional attachment the students have towards their experience, gift, or relationship built during the holidays.
 

2. Don’t Consider Learner’s Experiences a Distraction

PINEFIELD COLLEGE LEKKI
It is possible to coerce the entire class into keeping quiet or introduce some negative reinforcements as a method of ensuring discipline during the learning process. However, this can adversely affect the overall classroom mood and the pace of learning. Whether students are restless,  giving apathetic responses, turning in uninspired work, talking, or texting, the teacher is expected to use any of these activities as an entry behaviour for learning.
 
 
JARSPOK INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL
For instance, a teacher once explained how a distracted learner who never writes his essay was made to develop his writing skills by allowing him to write about his distractions. Since this student only cared about football, the teacher made him write sports news for the class which increased his self-esteem, leadership skills and a deeper sense of responsibility towards learning. In order to avoid labeling student experiences as distractions, teachers should inculcate the students’ distraction into the learning process. 
 

3. Pace Teaching to Accommodate Distractions

AFLON DIGITAL ACADEMY
Undoubtedly, there is a lot to be learned and so much more to be taught. Teachers are tempted to fill up the allocated 45 Minutes or 1 Hour of instruction with tasks and activities. However, with adequate pacing, the teacher can create the perception that a class is moving at “just the right speed” for students.
 
GOLDEN HEIGHTS COLLEGE
One way to achieve this is for the teacher to use a variety of activities to accomplish a single lesson objective and by moving from one lesson to another throughout the course of the lesson. The teacher can also allow some talk-time, play-time or lecture breaks so as to allow the students get to refocus on the learning whenever they are distracted.
 
In summary, the most effective form of education takes place when students want to learn and teachers want to teach. Helping students get ready for learning makes the teaching efforts made by teachers effective.
