Some people believe books should not be banned in schools/libraries but just because you do not like it does not mean it should be taken away, that is the authors freedom of speech. Also, some say that you should not be exposing bad behavior or language to students but in reality they hear and see these things everyday, and by banning a book, that is not protecting them. Writers have the freedom to write whatever they want and that is a part of the First Amendment, so why banned their book? “The First Amendment allows individuals to speak, publish, read and view what they wish, worship (or not worship) as they wish, associate with whomever they choose and gather together to ask the government to make changes in the law or to correct the wrongs in society.” (First Amendment and Censorship). This quote shows that banning authors ' books is against the First Amendment, which it is illegal.
Another concern for people who are against spinners at school is from some teachers. These teachers say allowing children to have spinners in the classroom is distracting to other students and to the teacher. However, if the child is using it discreetly like under the desk, and is not doing tricks, there should be no problems and no one should be distracted by the fidget
They also show what specific areas a student might be struggling in (Popham, 8-15). The tests also allow the School Board to decide if a school needs extra assistance with anything involving Math, Science, and English (VDOE website). Although these are valid reasons to keep standardized testing in place, there are many more reasons why they should be either removed or improved in some way. One reason why standardized testing should be improved or replaced is that students may understand material but might type an answer wrong or something technical on their test. They are made to feel like they got things wrong even though they might not have.
In class the example was brought up about a researcher that wouldn’t release their research to the police and had to serve jail time. Overt research is clear to see the researcher's intentions because they tell the participants that they are studying them. An advantage is that the researcher is able to have in-depth interviews with the participants and they are not limited to only field notes. A disadvantage is that the participants may not give the whole truth about themselves or feel as if they are being judged and the research that is found may not be as true as a covert researcher. The participant tells their truth but they may hold things back or leave out any details that they wish to, which may not give the whole picture.
Other pros of the honor code is it actually works in some cases. It gives students a feeling that they are trusted and cant let their professor down. The students as well have the peer pressure of their fellow students into doing the right thing. So if the majority of students respect the honor code, the rest will follow. In Source F it backs up my view with this statement “Unlike the majority of colleges where proctoring of tests and exams is the responsibility of the faculty and/or administration, many schools with academic honor codes allow students to take their exams without proctors present, relying on peer monitoring to control cheating.
It is also like a psychological matter. Students cheat because they have incentives to be dishonest. Therefore, our objective is to construct a culture of integrity, which means encouraging students to be honest instead of discouraging them cheating. This can’t be performed in a few days but requires a process and this is the biggest goal that administrators target. Cheating on tests occurs in the exam time but we need to set up methods before, both outside and inside the exam room.
Even parents complain when the students are given requirements to finish certain assignments online, for its a challenge for students to remain on task. Students have to be capable of concentrating on what needs their attention, such as their participation in classes, exercises, anything concerning their grades. It would also help if the teacher can use methods to refrain the students from using their cellular devices. Speaking of teachers, take note that at times it could be the teacher who gives the students an open door to not pay attention in class, especially a teacher who has favorites. It is true that teachers want their students undivided attention but there are some teachers that give little concern when their students are on their gadgets chatting, playing, or are on any social
Knowing, that some of the banks could have avoided the accident if they had updated their Microsoft systems suggests that there are is other solution to cyber problems as well as a difficulty. It is personnel technical education. Opening an unreliable e-mail and avoiding to update computer’ operating system sounds like an easy thing to teach. However, we ourselves do not always do this stuff correctly. Thus, the main difficulty that could be faced dealing with possible threats is not the technical one.
One of the disadvantages of Google Slides is that it is lack of features that fulfil users need. Such as diagrams, charts, graphs and so on. This make users hard to make their slides if it’s for serious work. Thus making users to draw back their attention toward Google Slides and users will find other software that will fulfil their need in doing presentation such as Microsoft PowerPoint. (reference : Stan Schroeder, 2007 ; mashable.com) Another feature that is lacking in Google Slides is that there is no convenient way to copy paste an element or a slide.
So in my opinion, hacking is not an ethical activity because it’s like trespassing someone’s privacy right and it is up-to individuals to respect the rights of others’ privacy. Describe briefly, a firewall in the context of internet security. Discuss the Application Layer Firewall and the Network Layer Firewall in your report. (6 marks) A firewall is a device or software that prevents and protects computer from viruses. It inspects all the data going in and out of the network ensuring that the traffic is legitimate & secure.
