CHINA SITÚA A ESPAÑA COMO EL PAÍS DE PREFERENCIA PARA ESTUDIANTES DE PRIMARIA Y SECUNDARIA

A principios de año muchos escolares en todo el mundo comienzan a dar forma una idea: efectuar el próximo curso escolar en otro país. El principal motivo –como pudiera ser medianamente lógico- es aprender y/o afianzar una lengua extranjera. Sin embargo, detrás, en muchas ocasiones hay otras motivaciones: aprender una cultura, embeberse de hábitos de una sociedad novedosa (máxime cuando hablamos entre continentes distintos), y/o buscar lazos que permitan desplegar redes de contacto para el estudiante de cara a su futuro profesional y personal a través de grupos de lobby; donde el alumno pueda entrar en contacto directo con hijos de reputados profesionales tanto de la empresa privada como pública, deportistas de elite, etc.

¿TE GUSTARÍA FORMAR PARTE DE LA RED MYNAPARROT DE ALUMNOS CHINOS?

En apenas 3 meses la inmensa mayoría de los colegios concertados tendrán la espada de Damocles acechando: encontrar alumnos. Con una tasa de crecimiento cero, la esperanza de encontrar niños se reduce año tras año. Por otro lado, en comunidades autónomas como Madrid el sistema de puntuación permite a las familias buscarse Colegios incluso en otros barrios más alejados: priman otros intereses. Así las cosas los directores tienen que hacer auténticos encaje de bolillos para conseguir el número mínimo de alumnos por aula. A tenor de estas consideraciones, ¿de dónde espera que le lleguen alumnos un director?

AMPLIANDO LÍNEAS DE NEGOCIO: INTERCAMBIO DE ALUMNOS CHINOS

Apenas hace 5 meses que Mynaparrot desembarcó en España y su presencia ya se ha hecho notar entre instituciones educativas, universidades y centros de formación de español para extranjeros. Mientras que éstas tienen que buscar alumnos (clientes) a pie de calle, a miles de kilómetros aguardan decenas de millones de potenciales clientes (alumnos) deseosos de aprender el español. Y, además, Mynaparrot lanza nuevos servicios para la comunidad educativa.

“EL FUTURO DEL E-LEARNING SE LLAMA REALIDAD VIRTUAL”

Con la tecnología actual podemos pensar que poco se podrá modificar en relación con el e-learning. Disfrutamos de unas velocidades de conexión en fibra más que suficiente para la mayoría de las necesidades; nuestros equipos vienen dotados de un hardware (procesadores, RAM, almacenamiento) nunca antes visto. Pero, ¿dónde se puede mejorar? En los periféricos…

Is time to create learning apps for your school

With a projected 269 billion downloads in 2017 alone, mobile apps are big news. One report saw a 25% increase in time spent on mobile apps worldwide between 2015 and 2016. Although this growth is starting to plateau, it’s safe to say that in the battle between mobile and desktop, our pocket-sized pal has clearly come out on top.

The trends are clear – if you want a training program that fits your learners and lets them get the most from it, mobile is the way forward!

 

MYNAPARROT, ESTABLECIENDO PUENTES ENTRE CHINA Y ESPAÑA

Echando la vista atrás, el aprendizaje a distancia tiene ya su propia historia. De hecho hay constancia de unos primeros cursos de formación estrictamente no presenciales a principios  del siglo XX, en torno a 1910. A mediados del pasado siglo, sobre todo en la década de los 60, la formación a distancia atraía a miles de usuarios que por determinados motivos–por lo general, la distancia y/o el poco tiempo disponible- les suponía un freno acudir a un centro formativo, fuese o no homologado; de hecho, en EEUU una característica casi intrínseca a  su cultura en esos años (década de los 50 en adelante) era adquirir ciertos bienes “por catálogo”. Así las cosas, el aprendizaje online con la llegada de Internet sólo era cuestión de tiempo. Y llegó…

APRENDER ESPAÑOL CON MYNAPARROT

Las plataformas de e-learning llevan más de una década funcionando. Desde entonces han ayudado a millones de alumnos en todo el mundo a cubrir sus necesidades de aprendizaje; unas veces con mayor acierto, otras, no tanto.  Quizás en este sentido toca preguntarse, ¿por qué? ¿Cuáles son los motivos que catapultan al éxito a una plataforma de aprendizaje virtual mientras otras quedan arrinconadas en el rincón del olvido?  Hace algo más de 2 años arrancó su actividad Mynaparrot, una plataforma de e-learning basada en B2B cuyo foco es el aprendizaje de idiomas. ¿Quieres conocer por qué somos (tan) diferentes y cuál es el valor añadido para las empresas que deseen colaborar con Mynaparrot?

An In-depth look of the cartoon language course

In this blog we’d like to give you an insight into what our cartoon courses look like, and why we have chosen this method of teaching within MynaParrot.

We believe that using cartoon videos are great for beginners who are self-educating at home. This is due to the fact that watching films of TV programs as a beginner with little to no understanding of the language can be incredibly daunting, and can often deter a student from wanting to continue.

Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year

Another year at MynaParrot and we couldn’t be more grateful of how far the platform has come.

We just wanted to take the chance to thank everybody who has been a part of the businesses journey so far. During the past year we have worked on changing the platform to a B2B from a B2C.

Thank you to all of our previous and current clients still using MynaParrot, we wouldn’t be a business without the trade from you.

We would also like to take the chance to thank our employees and freelancers who have been with the business. A huge thanks to Jibon, JMarie, Sharojit & Kenosis for sticking with the business, even when times were tough.

A business is nothing without its employees, and it’s your hard work and dedication to the company that has contributed to its successes this 2016.

 

Our plans for the New Year are to continue to bring more business to the site, as well as build on our workforce and employ more freelancers! We are really hopeful that 2017 will be even more of a success than 2016.

 

A very Merry Christmas to all, we wish you good health, and a very prosperous new year.

 

 

All the best,

 

MynaParrot

Let’s work together to compete with new online course companies

Online learning is quickly becoming a hot topic. Statistics from 2014 show that 5.8 million students enrolled themselves into an online course, and the numbers are increasing.


Unfortunately, with popularity comes competition within the market, as larger companies are trying to take over this new niche. This unfortunately leaves smaller, traditional schools struggling for new business, as they are unable to compete with the presence that corporate companies have.

For example, Udemy and Lynda are two of the biggest platforms within the market of online education, and with their presence being so large, they will automatically attract more new business.

Lynda advertises over 4,000 courses whilst Udemy advertises over 42,000+. This is a huge number to compete with as on the surface it appears to cover all topics necessary.

This is where MynaParrot comes in. We aim to work with traditional schools, as they ultimately need a platform that will give them the kick-start into the online world that they need. Traditional schools have fantastic teachers, who are full of knowledge, but ultimately, have no idea where to start and survive in the market!

What we aim to do is not only help you with the first crucial steps into the online world, but also to give you extensive tech support where needed, and ensure that you bring in business and succeed in the online world.

Should we deliver online live class content same as offline class

I am currently learning Spanish online now with a few teachers who teach me via an online virtual classroom.

There is a big problem for me with scheduling live classes with teachers, not only because I’m busy, but also due to the time difference. Then, I find myself trying to shorten the time of the live class since it’s harder for me to schedule, and overall I’m desperately trying to make it more productive.

Then, I came across some of the other sections available during the live class, and how I can use these tools to achieve an even better result.

For example, pronunciation practice would be great if it was taught differently. Or alternatively, a quiz where students can practice as many times as they want.

I think we should change the way of learning, by asking teachers to give us what we want to learn instead of learning what they want to teach us. Overall this will make learning a lot more positive for students.

For example, I got some questions about grammar and also some on pronunciation, which I was struggling to learn independently. I then let the teacher know and we used the live class as a troubleshooting session. This helps me massively! 

 

 

In a nutshell, we believe that for online learning, you definitely shouldn’t be using the same methods as offline. Teachers must update their content to make it fit with a live, online classroom setting.

Where online material can be accessed and replayed a thousand times, live classes should be used as troubleshooting sessions rather than re-capping on things that have already been said in previous online content!



What is an online course, and which one do you want?

Online courses are currently a hot topic, and are becoming a trend in the education sector. We classify these as real-time online classes, or e-courses. Ultimately, they come under the umbrella of online learning.

This is something that is more flexible and feasible for the majority of students who have to juggle more than one thing at once, such as a job, a family and so on.

In this blog, we’re going to delve a bit deeper into the world of online learning, and hopefully give you an insight into what it is.

E-courses, firstly, are not real time. These are often live videos that include real people, but are pre-recorded as short snippets which can then be accessed by students as and when it is suitable for them. On top of this, some e-courses (like ours) use other resources and combine them together to make an enriching learning experience.

Examples include practice quizzes and test questions that can be used in conjunction with the lessons. The advantage of this is you can often access these types of resources offline in a downloadable format. So you can be connected in an internet café for a short period of time to download everything you need, then use the info on the go and ‘watch offline’ if you like.

Although these things all sound great, they are still not powerful enough individually to make a difference. They are still independent working cogs which somewhat need to fit together. We need a system that will connect them together better than ever before!

 

 

How to Create an Ecourse and Market for Free

E-courses have become vital in online education. Primarily because it is a means of education virtually created with the same purpose as books and training videos hold. In short, e-courses enlighten minds through concise videos and/or written contents.

Truth be told, e-courses are becoming popular these days. It is found that e-courses are easier made than eBooks and much more profitable, averagely making 15x more than eBooks AND physical books do.

 

How and Why: The Essentials of Creating a Quiz

Quizzes have been known to everyone as something given and taken to evaluate one’s understanding of a subject or course. Although this may be true, they also give students an increased level in anxiety. But despite that setback, quizzes are always more inclined to positive results.

head-776681_640

A quiz can be given for many reasons, it is not merely for evaluation purposes. It may be given to provide insight into how and where the course may lead to. It can also be used by the students themselves to assess their improvement. And most importantly, it is a means of challenging the minds of the students, after all, a great mind once said “The important thing is not to stop questioning.” (Einstein)

Mynaparrot’s Online Quizzes are created for the sole purpose of encouraging one to take them, and rest assured the benefits will surge through. Mynaparrot’s quiz features will make the learning process much easier for both teacher and student. The features are as essential as the quiz content itself, for without them the quiz will end up dull and unmotivating.

 

How to Teach a Language Online

It is in this century that teachers are not only found in classrooms but on the internet as well. Traditional class, is of course not obsolete, many people just prefer to teach at home. Yes, one may say “that’s homeschooling you mean” but with homeschool, the students have limited resources and feasible teachers who happen to be their parents or just local people. Not to be condescending to the above but wouldn't it have been better if one could choose which teacher they like or which teacher they think is the best at that given course?

coffee-568968_640How you might ask is this possible? Easy, teach a course online. Students could enroll into an online university or look into online teaching platforms where teachers offer courses to enroll at. That is something very possible and common nowadays. 

Online teaching jobs are careers many have considered. By being at home, you wouldn’t have to bother going out, being stuck in traffic, standing almost all day, and sometimes forgetting your lunch. Being an online teacher makes everything easier, all you’ll need is a computer, stable internet, an online teaching platform, a microphone, and/or a webcam, and of course a comfy chair.

One of the most common courses taught online is the field of language. There’s no doubt many people want to learn new languages to broaden their knowledge and skills. Be it English, Spanish, German, Mandarin, or  the French language, most of the world’s population are dying to get their hands on online language courses.

Why Online Teaching Jobs Earn Much Better

Online Teaching Jobs do not limit to teachers or educators. Everybody has a big chance of succeeding in virtual education, as teachers do. All you have got to do is find within yourself your forte and teach it.

 

home-office-336373_640     Why, you might ask, do online teachers earn better than regular teachers? Simple, this is because most online teachers are freelancers. They work right in the comfort of their own home. They can also have as many students as they prefer, and earn depending on the number of students in the class. The larger the number, the more they earn.

       Garnering students wouldn't be that difficult since everybody can be students. There are people wanting to learn Chinese or learn French online, and if either of these is your forte, then you will most likely gather students who are not only paying you individually but who also happen to be interested, which makes the learning process easier and quicker. But before all these, you have to look for learning platforms where it is possible to hold your courses.
