Solvy: Turning Education Toward a New Era

What Alexei Beltyukov’s Solvy is and how it fits into the education world:

Solvys allows for customizable online assignments to be made by teachers to their students. Solvy allows teachers to make assignments online, and then allows teachers to monitor the work of the students as they complete their exercises.

Through Solvy, teachers are able to detect areas in the students’ work as assignments are completed. This innovative program will even provide assistance with the dreaded Algebra I, often a score in a young student’s school day!

Alexei Beltyukov himself is well suited as the creator of Solvy, being something of a Renaissance man with training in both Medicine and later turning to business where he attained an MBA and has launched several successful businesses exploiting his creative talents.

The educational impacts of Alexei Beltyukov and his brain-child, Solvy:

Solvy involves the application of Alexei Beltyukov’s innovative use of technology in math programs to inspire Solvy’s innovative method of making regular assignments available online and then allowing students and teachers to interact online regarding the assignments is a positive new leap for education.

It allows an affordable way to distribute assignments and provide feedback and any necessary additional instruction to the students as they complete the work, while questions are still fresh on the students’ minds.

This innovation enables educators to extend their classrooms beyond the school buildings and into the real-time lives of their students.

It also permits teachers to observe the students’ work first-hand and to isolate problem areas early on. Use of Solvy enables teachers to capitalize on rare “teachable moments” as they occur.

Securus Video Chat Video Heartwarming

First of all, I want to give a shout out to the company that made this video possible. Securus Technologies is a company that is all about bringing inmates and their families together which can only be a good thing. The more humanely we treat our prisoners, the better the results for everybody. But that’s another point to be made altogether.

 

It’s clear to see that the man in this video is in prison. Now you might jump to conclusions and say that he does not deserve to be video chatting with his family, but I disagree. The children of criminals did nothing wrong and I don’t believe they should suffer for the sins of their fathers.

 

No matter what you think of the man, you can’t get over the cuteness of this video. The cool thing is that the child doesn’t really know that the dad’s in jail or that he might be across state lines. All the kid noses that is getting used to his father’s face while enjoying the comfort of his own home.

 

This video hits me especially hard because another telecommunications company that services prisons has been in the news lately. Global Tel-Link has recently been regulated by the federal government because they’ve been charging an arm and a leg for families to communicate with each other. This kills me because it really hurts the kid.

 

Global Tel-Link was providing terrible phone service and charging way too much. On the other hand, Securus is making it affordable and easy for families to stay in touch. Because imagine being a kid with a parent behind bars. I think the experience would be like having a parent die, especially if that parent couldn’t communicate because the prices were too steep or the phone service was too bad.

 

I just couldn’t imagine one of my parents missing out on the milestones of my life. You might think that a parent missing his kids milestones is a punishment for the prisoner, but I’d argue that it also hurts the kid. The kid has to grow up knowing that his parent missed every important step of the way.

PPOs are Medicare Advantage plans where beneficiaries are required to pay fixed copay when using the plans in network service providers.

3. Medicare Private Fee- for- Service (PFFS)
PFFS is an alternative way of getting original Medicare’s services that may take care of prescription drug coverage.

Most Medicare Advantage plans provide additional health benefits like eye care, dental care, drug prescription and annual medical examinations. When using their in- network service providers, services are cheaper.

You can enroll in any Medicare Advantage plan if live within a Medicare Advantage plan area and have Part A and B Medicare premiums.
