Cathy Davidson point out that: “To be prepare for jobs that have a real future in the digital economy, one needs an emphasis on creative thinking, at all levels…many of these jobs require highly specialized and dexterous problem-solving abilities or interpersonal skills” (60). Younger generation and students are more involved in the educational context in most of cases. Therefore, education context should be clearly and accurately guide students how to obtain creativity and other values for their better lives. During this process, students may suffer some
If people are constantly operating unconsciously and only ever taking what they see face value then they are not relating or understanding others; even more what they are thinking about other’s is stereotypical and possibly hurtful. Often people do make these dispositional attributions; or attribute someone’s behavior to their internal state such as their personality, attitude, or character (textbook, p.85). This can
However, I have put a great amount of effort into learning English grammar by taking online courses to help me improve in this area. My strong efforts will surely help me within my career as a software engineer. I have experienced positive and negative experiences, but through practicing new tasks that my field requires, I have been able to gain new skills in communication and writing. I am currently a software engineer and I am fully aware of the strong communication skills that are necessary to succeed in this occupation. Each day I use what I have learned to be a better communicator, but I know that there is so much more to learn so that I can be a better writer and communicator within my career.
The psychological influence may cause the child to have low self esteem, lose interest in preferred activities, and even rebel by engaging in self destructive acts. This provides evidence that discipline can contradict its goal and be self-defeating when it is poorly
According to Ragins & Cotton, (1991) state that the female to female mentorship is said to have an additional benefit of not having negative sexual connotation that a female to male mentorship relationship may elicit. Ragins and Scandura (1994) indicated that women are as willing as men to mentor others. However, Parker & Kram (1993) indicated that token women in top management are unwilling to mentor because they do not want to share the limelight with others. Lack of women in high ranking and influential roles is one of the reasons there is a lack of female mentors (Ragins & Scandura, 1994). The lack of mentors and role models is one of the challenges that women have in their working environment (Catalyst, 2001).
Using technology in schools will help students to prepare for future careers. The advancements in technology are increasing in careers; allowing students to use technology now will help them to be ready for their future. “With the job market a competitive and ever-evolving arena, determining your career path is more than just following your passions and skills, it’s about being adaptive in this digital age and understanding what skills and jobs are in high demand… ”(Fyfe). Technology impacts many careers; if students understand it now they will be more prepared for the technology in the future. New programs being developed help students to learn skills they may use in the future; as well as, help students to find topics they may be interested in for future jobs.
At a young age, girls are just as interested in STEM subjects as boys but the older they get and the more society and media disapproves, the more they reject STEM subjects (National Girls Collaborative). Who one believes they can be significantly impacts who they become. By creating representation for LGBT people, LGBT kids can feel as if they are able to achieve something outside of
Sexism makes it difficult for women to pursue a career about which they are interested. Having more women, in STEM fields would also “lessen occupational segregation and reduce the level of gender inequality in the labor force” (Xie and Shauman, 2005, p. 4)”(page 5). If more women enter the STEM area, it can actually benefit the community of women . Not only will it give women more of a voice, but it could reduce inequality. Along with Inequality in the social spectrum, Women also deal with inequality in the health area.“So what difference does it make when there is a lack of women in science?
Moreover, technology allows students to see the whole world as a resource with themselves being in charge of their destiny. It also benefits students because they have choices and opportunities to explore and share information to a greater extent than available in a traditional classroom. Educators, in my opinion, should be racing to utilize programs that retain children's attention and reinforce methods and concepts taught in class. International competitors are excelling in the areas of math and science by using computers efficiently. Therefore, it is essential that our children are taught how to use and learn from computers in order to produce a society that is up to par with nations
It is no secret that nowadays women are extremely underrepresented in the technology with no definite explanation why. Many popular theories are that women are not naturally good or concerned in technology, the education system is failing young women, or there are not enough role models. The issue of why women do not pursue Computer Science is a very complex issue with many variables, and an aggregation of these issues can push women away from the CS field and towards others whether for personal ideas, work flexibility, or even similar culture. These variables include: Girls being discouraged from doing math or told they’re not as good, perceived “masculine geek” culture, perceived anti-social career field, perceived lack of ability to help
