According to Manpreet and Harpreet Kaur’s article “Study of peer influence among university students,” peer pressure is the influence a peer group has on an individual and that peer pressure can lead one into doing dishonest practices. Manpreet and Harpreet are explaining that college students can be pressured to cheat by a group of classmates. Because of the intensity in pleasing the wrong crowd despite the severe consequences, students fail in academic honesty in that they are afraid of standing for what is honest; therefore they plagiarize. As there are many reasons why a student can cheat, there is a wide variety of easy ways college students
Those messages of implied curriculum usually deal with attitudes, principles, beliefs, and conduct. Although implied curriculum is unavoidable, a student’s worldview can be deeply impacted by the implied curriculum in a school. In teaching character education, teachers are asking students to conform to a set of values they have chosen. Teachers must be extremely careful as they decide which values should be taught to students. According to Power and Kohlberg in their article, Moral Development: Transforming the Hidden Curriculum, administrators and teachers can change the hidden curriculum in a moral atmosphere and teachers and administrators should state moral values clearly and provide democratic environments for students (Power & Kohlberg, 1986, pp.
I remember some classmates, cheating back in high school. Throughout my entire educational career, I have experienced meeting a lot of cheaters. Plagiarism is considered a form of cheating. The punishment has changed from a zero grade to expulsion. A lot of students who cheat, are only fooling themselves.
Over two thirds of American parents are concerned about their children’s safety at school following the Columbine Massacre (Madfis, 2016) and other high-profile school shootings in the US. Are their concerns justified? Having examined a report by (Borum, Cornell, Modzeleski, & Jimerson, 2010) which addresses this question by reviewing a range of empirical evidence, I feel as though it is safe to say that American schools are safe and the publicity of the rare shooting cases creates a grandiose perception of danger and causes unnecessary fear. The report also explains why there is a miscomprehension regarding the occurrence of school shootings and provides insight on how school shootings could be prevented. The first ‘desperate’ measures following the school shootings were to suggest that teachers should have handguns with them
Social media is becoming an ubiquitous in today’s society and today’s youth are spending a great deal of time using some sites to access in a public life. Social media 1 Negative effects of social media on education A lot of students are using some sites that can distract them from their doings especially on their studies. Yes, social media gives everything what a person will need. Social media is a great way to have a person communicating with another person but we also do know that it could give us a big impact that could be problem to our studies. Nowadays, a lot of students are multi-tasking especially whenever they are doing some things that are related to their studies.
That being said, the internet could be a very dangerous thing for children to discover. The internet has many uses and can teach us many great things but letting children use it can lead to bad things, such as changes in attitude, thought process and general health conditions. It could corrupt their minds in ways that may not be suitable for the youth. An example of negative access to the internet would have to violence.
“If I cheat and don’t get caught, the reward is an ‘A’ in the class”. Cheating is a getaway for everyone beginning from high school to college up to graduate and professional schools. Which leads to students participating to an academic dishonesty, a violation to any educational environment with any form of cheating or participating of any kind of sharing information to others for homework, tests, and papers. It has become so common for students that cheating has branched out to different type of styles such as plagiarism, turning in someone’s work as their own, copying without proper credit, allowing others to copy off their own work, fabricating data, to cheating off a test with their phones, handwritten notecards, written information on personal erasers etc. Today in society cheating is not a thought-out plan to do before
Therefore new websites are being created to fit the needs of each person, business, dating, friendships. Paragraph #3 - Cyberbullying Not only does social networking just for sharing photo’s or connecting with one another, it is also a leading cause of cyberbullying. Because social networking is used almost everywhere and used by everyone, it’s hard to not be apart of it if it’s in your everyday life.
A sensitive society has its difficulties for people to even speak out against the issue of bullying, without being interpreted a different way than its original meaning. Bullying and harassment have been a noticeable problem among students in schools worldwide, and still social acceptance and acknowledgment is a continuous issue. Teens are often picked on because of their sexual orientation/preference, appearances, and many other physical or mental factors. One of the main reasons that bullying and harassment is so prevalent among the teen- aged group is because it is so easy for that age group to succumb to competitions within the group as to whom is the coolest. Additionally, what comprises and qualifies as cool is predecided and made a
Creating awareness for faculty and providing seminars is a great way however; I feel the approach should be slightly different. Faculty should be taught the awareness of micoaggresions and the affect they can have on students. They should also be informed between the difference of intentional and unintentional microaggressions and draw a line between what is acceptable and what it
The general argument made by Melinda D. Anderson in her work “How Internet Flirting Hurts Kids,” is that full student access to the Internet has become limited by excessive censorship by school districts. More specifically, Anderson argues that districts are enforcing too many barriers on the Internet that it can barricade a student’s ability to learn. She writes, “the pernicious practice by school districts of overzealous Internet censorship” has been used too much that it does not simply keep students safe from obscene content, instead it obstructs knowledge. Censorship on YouTube for example, creates a barrier for students to learn from tutorials or lectures online. In this passage, Anderson is suggesting that districts are overusing their
The New York Times article, Stuyvesant Students Describe the How and the Why of Cheating, written by Vivian Yee, primarily focuses on the reasons why students choose to cheat. These answers all come from alumni of Stuyvesant High School. They each give a unique perspective on the issue of cheating, as well as giving their own moral justification for cheating on a test. Three main reasons why students are found to cheat, as seen through interviews conducted by the author herself are, the lack of respect for material being taught, and cheating due to a harsh competitive environment. In order to refute these rationalizations behind cheating the methods of cheating will be taken into consideration.
Technology in schools is a big controversy nowadays. Should there be more involvement or less? There should be less in school because it causes students to not have the capability to think and have creativity for themselves, a lot of valuable class time is wasted, and money is flying out the window to afford the newest technology. The internet is taking valuable skills away from students.
