There is no theme for this week’s #teampixel feature, instead, the common thread binding them together is that each photo is unique. We’re continually impressed by our community’s work that transports us to faraway lands and different civilizations, allowing us to see the world through someone else’s eyes. So this week, let’s celebrate their diversity, and how together…we are better.
Show #teampixel some love by visiting the feed and like their photos. Who knows — you might even make a new connection. 😉
Schools in Latin America and around the world are searching for ways to take student impact beyond the classroom. In Mexico, we wanted to explore how teachers and students are using technology to empower a rising generation of innovative changemakers—and this week, we’re sharing some of the stories we found. Tune into the hashtag #innovarparami to see how education leaders in Latin America are thinking about innovation.
For Enrique Cordero, a GEG (Google Educator Groups) teacher and IT administrator, the only thing better than teaching students is the opportunity to learn from them. He believes that children are innate inventors; educators should help students preserve their natural propensity to imagine—and create—the world as it isn’t yet.
So he designed a course at the American School of Puebla called “Solving the World’s Problems,” where he asks kids to identify the issues that they see as pressing and challenges them to think up solutions. Field research plays a central role in the course, and during a field trip to a community near the school one day, students heard first-hand accounts about the difficulties that communities face when they lack access to potable water.
The field trip inspired Paco and Rodrigo, two of Enrique’s sixth graders, to invent something that could make drinking water accessible to all. They sketched a prototype on
For many applicants, the education section is the easiest
part to write on their resume. They just list their alma mater’s name, degree,
and graduation date. Simple.
It’s not always that simple though. For instance, what do
you write if you switched school three times before completing your bachelors?
How do you list your college education if you’re still completing your thesis? What if you dropped out of an MBA?
This tutorial answers those questions, and everything else
related to listing education on a resume.
First, let’s start with the basics:
Writing the Education Section of a Resume (5 Key Tips)
Here are the common guidelines to follow when listing
education on a resume:
Always include the following information: the degree you
received, your major, the name of your school, its location, and your
Start with your highest educational attainment.
List all other degrees in reverse-chronological order.
Delete high-school education if you already graduated
Remove your graduation date if you earned it more than
five years ago.
Of course, these guidelines don’t apply to all situations. I’ll
discuss all of these in more detail in the succeeding sections:
Where to Put Education on Your Resume
If You’re In High School
List your education at the top one third of your resume,
just below your skills summary. Let your education do the heavy lifting for
now, even if you already have a bit of work experience.
If You’re In College Or Just Graduated
At this stage, you probably have more credentials related to
your target job as a student, than as a working professional.
So if you haven’t had a job, project, or volunteer work
related to the position you’re applying for, put education before work
experience on your resume.
You might argue that it’s better to list the odd and
part-time jobs you did first. Maybe you think these job entries show that
you’re employable and at
