Answer:

If you want general help with Excel, make sure to check out Microsoft's tutorials at https://support.office.com/en-us/article/excel-for-windows-training-9bc05390-e94c-46af-a5b3-d7c22f6990bbhttps://support.office.com/en-us/article/excel-for-windows-training-9bc05390-e94c-46af-a5b3-d7c22f6990bb. For this specific task, you would need to type in the total income amounts in separate cells, then use a formula to calculate percentage of change. The general formula is =(A3-A2)/A2. When the result appears, click the cell then click Home tab-->Number Group-->Percent Style.

Question:

I need to write a paper on the impact of technology on social interactions. Where do I start?

Answer:

Your university/college library will most likely have a Website with access to hundreds (if not thousands) of databases. This should be your first stop, before Google or any other basic Internet searching. Online databases provide vetted information in an easy-to-use format as well as multiple reading and marking tools. You can also find citation tools, related articles, etc. If you are unfamiliar with specialized databases, start with a generic one such as Academic Search Complete or Proquest. You can move to more specialized databases later if you do not find the information you need. Before you start typing in keywords, take a look around the database for the tools and tips provided. For example, in Academic Search Complete you can search by a number of pathways if you click the arrow button next to the first search field. You can limit your search by date (as many professors want articles that are less than five years old). You can limit to full text unless you have time to order the article through interlibrary loan. For this search, I would recommend using a variety of search techniques, including quotation marks and boolean logic. I ran a sample search using: "impact of technology" AND "social skills" OR "social interaction" and received very strong results.

Question:

What is the hybrid rotational model and how does it enhance student learning?

Inactive
Corey H.
Answer:

The hybrid rotational model is an instructional style that utilizes three teaching modalities (used simultaneously or in progression). Usually the class is split into three equal groups by some measure developed by the teacher (i.e. results from STAR testing, competency-based assessment, etc). Each group is assigned a station for a portion of the class: direct, independent, and collaborative. In direct, the teacher works with students on a topic, helps develop skills, or provides enrichment. The point of direct is that it is teacher-led. In independent, students are working by themselves on pre-assigned tasks, usually related to practice, enrichment, or remediation. Additionally independent can be used for silent sustained reading, listening station, etc. Collaborative provides students with an opportunity to work with teammates on a task assigned by the teacher. This task will relate to the topic of the day. All three centers are related. This teaching style is particularly useful for students because it provides multiple modalities of instruction. Students switch stations at regular intervals so they experience some movement and change. Teachers are able to work in small groups with every single student.
