Pressure Points in Student Fiancial Assistance   http://www.millenniumscholarships.ca/en/research/pressure_en.pdf  Site Reviews(0)
The Canada Millennium Scholarship Foundation was established in 1998 to promote access to post-secondary education through the provision of bursaries to needy students. To do this effectively, the Foundation launched a research program on financial challenges facing post-secondary students. EKOS Research Associates was hired to study the overall picture of education financing, including student expenditures, sources of income and debt, and how students’ financial circumstances affect access to post-secondary education. EKOS’s findings were published by the Foundation in March of 2003 in a report called Making Ends Meet: The 2001–2002 Student Financial Survey. That report focuses specifically on the income and expenditures of students, and does not try to capture what others spend on their behalf, such as the “in-kind” support of room and board that students living at home receive. It contains valuable information on students’ socio-demographic, education and employment profiles, expenses, and sources of financial support both during school and over the summer. However, the Foundation felt the data EKOS gathered had the potential to be even more useful to administrators. This report explores the data using Canada Student Loans Program definitions and categories to identify additional information for analysis, and the policy implications inherent in the reformatted data. Recommendations on forming questions for further surveys, which would use those definitions, are included.

Peter Russell Mind Mapping   http://www.peterussell.com/mindmaps/mindmap.html  Site Reviews(0)
Mind maps were developed in the late 60s by Tony Buzan as a way of helping students make notes that used only key words and images. They are much quicker to make, and because of their visual quality much easier to remember and review. The non-linear nature of mind maps makes it easy to link and cross-reference different elements of the map.
