Some argue that this new technology promotes short attention spans and lack of appreciation for the historical arts (Source E). Without the correct guidance, this statement may hold true for some students, but if teachers recognize that technology, like anything else, must be monitored and used only in proper context, that danger disappears. Technology can even be blended with traditional learning in order to maximize efficiency. Students could be asked to read a work of classic literature such as Shakespeare and later be asked to post on an online discussion board about their interpretations and reading experiences. In the end, students will learn more through technology because it provides a setting in which they are able to understand and relate to the information.
Many have created systems to stop or slow the effects of cheating such as described with David and Steven’s ideas about getting systems to detect plagiarism and get more teachers involved in stopping the aggressive rise to technology cheating. This is only certain ways you can stop cheating and plagiarism in the classroom. Ms. Gu and Cary Moskovitz show that if you allow the students to understand that a better grade is not what everyone needs but they need to understand on the knowledge gained from studying and learning the assignment themselves and not by from someone else and their work. Schools could stop the rise of cheating and academic dishonesty with more effort being forced into the teachers and school advisers about
Bomb Calorimeter is also being used in various different fields such as: • Thermodynamics Study Thermodynamics studies how heat changes to and from other energy forms. Bomb calorimeter is used in thermodynamics researches to measure the amount of heat involved in formation and reaction, change in enthalpy throughout the reaction and the heat of combustion. It is very vital in this field of study. • Educational Training For individuals who aim to pursue career which require the use of Bomb Calorimeter, need to be familiar with using this device. It is also used to elaborate on theories related to this field of
Memories do succeed to help us learn from our mistakes from the past memories. Our mistakes can help in the future it could help us achieve other goals. Remembering a memory like the first time going to school and having to do the first test and forget to study. We remember to study next time that is how memories can help and not have a difficult time. Also it can help you when someone else gets in trouble with their parents next they will know what not to do or similar to what they did.I also believe memories can be hinder because there might have been point in a person’s life that they struggle with and do not want to remember.
People go off of Rate Your Professor to see a grading of a teacher to make the decision if they will take the course. The second lesson I learned was that technology will redefine our culture and the words we live by. Thamus stated that people will have “discovered a receipt of recollection and not for memory”. This statement shows how technology redefines our culture by the way we learn and remember. People are not only considered smart by how much they can remember about a subject.
In the current decade, students are often encouraged to comment and criticize one’s work. This process is looked as a way to make students think and apply what they had learnt in classrooms. I agree that it indeed provokes students’ thought process and is effective for them to gain better understanding on a certain topic. However, the expectations of criticizing someone’s work had just been raised to a whole new level as they’re actually encouraged to tear apart someone’s work and always having something to disagree with rather than criticizing constructively. During discussions, teachers are often interested to hear students arguing about their own standpoints rather than the actual takeaways from the paper.
I found it difficult to formulate questions from each level of Bloom’s taxonomy, consequently, I may have devised questions to simple, or unclear to truly evaluate the comprehension of the student. For example, one of the questions I asked was “can you think of extra personal connections to the book?” I mistakenly asked the question in such a way that the student could simply say no (which is what happened). In the text “How to Take Running Records” the importance of comprehension is emphasized (Alphakids Assessment Kit Teacher’s Guide, 2002, p.10). Aiding students as they become critics and analysts of written work is part of the role of the teacher. If I expect both an accurate view of student abilities and a comprehensive running record, it is my duty to practice creating effective questions addressing all levels of comprehension!
Sternberg remarked that the “demands of the field bear little or no resemblance to the demands or the training that is needed in order to enter the field”. I fear that we may be extinguishing our students passion for certain fields by having unrealistic expectations (some of which are beyond our control) of our students in teaching some subjects. While I applaud the shift of focus of the science syllabus from rote learning and memory work towards a more analytical and practical approach (which is the essence of science, isn’t it? ), I wonder how many science teachers have actually fully utilised the freedom of the white space allowed to getting students to be engaged in creative work that really matters? I often hear of teachers’ complaints about there being no room for creative work in the science curriculum as, at the end of the day, students (and to a certain extent, teachers too!)
On one hand, it is easy to see the potential ineffectiveness of the tests: some students may not take the assessments seriously, the curriculum taught by the educator can affect the level of preparedness, etc., and therefore the argument can be made that even if critical thinking skills are measured, the data gathered from the tests may not be accurate. However, the establishment of standards and a universal approach for educating allows for a tentative guideline by which one can measure the progress of the nation’s students from year to year and find common trends. Both Advanced Placement tests and the Keystone assessments, though drastically different in format, allowed me to test my knowledge in several subjects and learn where I ranked among my peers. Whether fill-in-the-bubble or multiple choice questions commonly found on standardized tests cause students to “analyze, evaluate, interpret, or synthesize information and apply creative thought to form an argument, solve a problem, or reach a conclusion,” is ultimately debatable. Nonetheless, alternate styles of questions such as open-ended responses and short essays are seemingly favorable substitutes for those who disagree with the current format of test
According to Laurie Futterman who chairs the science department and teaches gifted middle school science at David Lawrence Jr. K-8 Center, “Reading, math and science aren’t for everyone — and we need to realize that.”(“Beyond the Classroom: Electives in School — Essential or Entertaining?”)Students can get amazing impacts from electives. Elective can change the way students go through their life. Electives should be allowed to stay in middle and high schools because it can help students find their hidden talents, it can help them find their future job, and find ways to get better grades. One reason electives should be provided is they may help students find their hidden talent. According to Ernie Rambo, electives can show their kids some skills that some classes may not consider(Rambo).
My schooling and upbringing have reinforced the importance of honestly and integrity. This year, in AP Research, we spent a number of classes discussing plagiarism and how to avoid it — some students, in paraphrasing the ideas of others and forgetting to cite correcting, have accidentally committed the act of plagiarism. As a result, I have learned the importance of citing correctly. I have also learnt how to clearly distinguish to readers what points were products of my own thinking, and what ideas were created and presented by others. Putting in countless citations is laborious and tedious, but ultimately worth the effort: plagiarism should be avoided at all costs.
Teachers are giving you pratice test after practice test trying to get you ready for the real one when they should be trying to teach you what you need to know for those tests. In the classroom,there are more opportunities for people to learn at their own pace and in their own way,but when taking all of the test they are required to take,it makes it harder and harder for that to happen,”It has been suggested that performance assessments, popularized as an important component in educational reform movements, will reduce differences among groups because they provide students with hands-on opportunities to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of how to solve problems rather than requiring students to simply recall facts” (Shavelson 4). When people are in any classroom setting they would much rather learn things to help them in their future they just recall facts that have no relevance to their lives or career choices. Preparing and studying for a test that revolve around topics that have no purdance in your life as well as a waste of time and money,yes in school you have to learn some things that you most likely will never use but that comes with being in school,but having a whole test revolve around things you will not need is just a waste. So why waste all that when you could use all that time and money for things that
Today, there still lots of influences, even though roadblocks hold me back and make me do bad decision’s. During school it might be boring to do work but at the end we all learn new things. Also, many of us get lectured from our parents about a bad grade or a poor decision, but after middle school or high school the advice pays off to know about. Even though, lots of people know what they did and might be honest with the choice they made and that will help them with avoiding the roadblocks of knowing they were lying to the parent. To avoid the roadblocks is to do the right thing and make the better choice.
Say No To Screen Free Week Technology is the application of scientific knowledge for practical purposes. Children have many practical purposes that they would need to use “screens” technology for. So by eliminating a valuable learning tool you are jeopardizing kids learning and making a drastic change in their effective daily lives. According to PBS LearningMedia research, 74% of teachers surveyed responded that using classroom technology motivates students to learn. (kurzweil,2015).Technology in the classrooms allows kids to take their education into their own hands with hands on learning.Screen Free Week will allow that many kids learning will begin at school and end at school, but if you say no children will be able to learn freely anytime with a touch of a screen.
