Provide a summary for the video (minimum 100 words). In this video, a reporter form CNN is discussing an educational approach that focuses on cognitive development for children. This approach tries to understand the mind of a young child. It also focuses on letting the children know how valued their thoughts and ideas are. In this approach, the children are shown that their work is valued by their teachers photographing and keeping record of their work and ideas they express. This approach focuses on the children spending more time in their art class and having more art materials to work with than usual. This approach focuses on telling the children how to find answers to questions on their own instead of the teachers giving them the answers. This focus values creativity and free thoughts for the
Carter, & Hook, 1998). My evaluation of the usefulness of the instructional strategy is that it
In academic contexts they should be prepared to work with sources and to critically reflect where these sources come from. In 2011 Traphagan et al. tested the influence of being fully fully involved into the process of publication on Wikipedia on students. After being involved students showed more sensitivity towards the process of publication and the reliability of publicly assessed sources. Hence, the information literacy of students was improved. Wikipedia would support those students due to the fact that they have to get prepared for working in science which includes challenging statements of different
In addition, Sir Ken Robinson demonstrated with his speech that the public school system disregards creativity and he persuaded us to take action, hereafter children’s intelligence is not solely determined by standardized tests.
In middle school, I was given several assignments similar to the one Mrs. Giet had given. However, these subsequent assignments did not have the restriction of using only books for research. My next activities allowed use of the Internet for gathering data. When I set out on my quest for information, I would begin with my assigned topic, but there was so much information coming my way. For example, I was searching for information on “World War 2” and that search led me to a link about the Cold War, which then led me down the path to the race to space between Russia and America. So much information available, and it was very intriguing. This was the first time I can strongly remember using the Internet to look up information that I was interested in. It was not just an assignment for school, but rather something just for
In Nicholas Carr’s essay, “Is Google Making Us Stupid?” the writer states the importance of how the internet has a huge impact on people's life in different ways. Carr explains how it's so easy for anyone to search anything with just a click of a button. He reveals that one can't stop reading books altogether instead they read online changing the way they think. A research . shows that people using a website has developed a new way to read called skimming. They don't read word from word instead they just for one page to another. In the end, he describes how we need to teach our minds how to understand longer passages again.
Nicholas Carr wrote the article “Is Google Making Us Stupid?’’ where he tries to argue out his opinion. The article is about reading which is being eroded to his belief. Carr believes the deep reading is now a struggle due to spending time online. He describes the web as a valuable tool but it has a bad impact on concentration. He points out that people read more because of the Web but deep concentration to reading printed books is disengaged. The article is not specifically directed at Google but more on the effects of the internet.
Nicholas Carr examines the relationship between not only the way we read but also the way we think and our increasing use of the Internet in his article “Is Google Making Us Stupid?”. Carr believes that the use of the Internet has hindered our ability to concentrate and examine literature. Carr’s article contains a significant amount of anecdotal evidence, as well as some scientific research, which he includes in an attempt to support his stance; however, in my assessment the evidence Carr presents is ineffective in supporting his assertions. I will examine the flaws within Carr’s article, as well as the evidence utilized by Carr and evaluate the validity of his argument. Additionally, I will discuss research findings relevant to the subject matter to support my viewpoint that the Internet does not threaten our ability to narrow our focus and delve into a piece of literature.
Nicholas Carr, in his article, “Is Google Making Us Stupid?” he makes a concrete argument over the internet changing our way of thinking. Particularly, the way we read.
The internet has affected our way of reading positively because it helps us find information more quickly and less difficult than people who don’t have internet access. For example, whenever I am assigned a research paper I always use the internet to find good evidence and support my claim. Using books is rarely the case because it is more tiring and a lot harder since there's only one author writing the book I only receive one perspective. According to Emily Green, a freelance writer with more than six years’ experience in blogging, copywriting, content, SEO, and dissertation, technical and thesis writing, “While research is instantly provided to us, instead of sifting through heavy books for hours, there is a huge amount of information on the internet. This means it takes us more time to go through it and find sources and pockets of information that are reliable In doing this, we spend more time digesting, thinking about, and critically applying that information.” As a student, Google allows me to see further than those who don’t have internet access because I can compare and contrast different points of views of different authors to make a final conclusion. Students who use the internet provide information to more than one audience which allows student to think more open minded and
In “Is Google Making Us Stupid?” published in The Atlantic on July 2008, American writer Nicholas Carr comes to the realization that the constant usage of the internet is changing how the average person reads and remembers. Carr says: “The Web has been a godsend to me as a writer. Research that once required days in the stacks or periodical rooms of libraries can now be done in minutes”. Nicholas Carr believes that the internet is a valuable tool, but there are concerns based on how it is used. The author thinks that this can be seen in the fact that people are more likely to skim an article to try and get the information wanted, causing an easy and lazy way of achieving the wanted information. Carr also suggests this way also causes the removal of the need for remembering papers that were
These websites may be a critical help to research for homework, work, and many other things, but ultimately reading endless pages and clicking links is not a way to learn and educate the mind with crucial information. Skimming, clicking, and scrolling is not doing research, it is a bad excuse for inattentiveness. Carr said “The web has been a godsend to
Chapter 3, "The Trouble with Genius" starts with a characterization of Chris langan, a man said to have the highest IQ of anyone else on earth. Gladwell portrays Langan 's presence on a television quiz show and the outstanding wit he shows at a very young age well as the remarkable intelligence he displays at a very young age. Gladwell leaves the discussion of Langan to return to his story later. Gladwell turns to the subject of IQ, which is short for "intelligence quotient." A standard IQ test called the Stanford-Binet test is developed by Professor Lewis Terman at Stanford University. Terman performs a remarkable experiment beginning in the 1920s, in which he sifts through school records to find a group of children with very high IQ scores,
I recently had the pleasure of attending the Headsprout Brown Bag discussion during which Dr. Janet Twyman explained her innovative teaching system in detail. The program was created by a group of behavior analysts to teach early reading and literacy skills to children using applied behavior analysis. I took a particular interest in the ideology behind Headsprout since I am highly interested in working towards widespread implementation of similar programs in my future work.
In the article, the author addresses the steps needed to successfully implement the taxonomy thinking skills, including: Teachers should be familiar with the thinking skills, teachers should identify student needs, and teachers should choose the most relevant skills according to content, curriculum, and developmental levels.
