5 Strategies for Helping Students Stay Organized

Give students the tools they need to stay tidy and on track to set them up for a successful school year. Here are some tips for helping disorganized students keep their assignments in order: Encourage a Clean Workspace Disorganized students tend to have messy desks, which can help contribute to lost assignments and missed deadlines as well as distractions during class time. Set time aside each week to have all students neaten up their workspace—this way, messier students will have a designated time to sort through their papers and supplies without feeling singled out.

Making Change: Bringing a Non-Profit’s Logo to Life

When World of Change launched in 2017, its mission was elegantly simple: collect spare change to fund worthy causes. With an estimated $10 billion in loose coins currently sitting idle in households, the concept has the potential to add up to some big change.

Says Hoidal, “World of Change needs to be something people can visualize, touch, hear and feel, so we had to have something tangible to help illustrate how our change collection and investment concept would work.” For the organization and its purpose to be communicated successfully, it was clear that sandwich bags and envelopes wouldn’t cut it when it came to coin collection. Instead, Hoidal created coin kits all his own by repurposing … Read More
