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.
During discussions, teachers are often interested to hear students arguing about their own standpoints rather than the actual takeaways from the paper. Structure like this in classrooms only validates that students are able to argue but, diminishes the opportunities of creating values to the scholarly work and voicing out from the side that share the same opinion as the author. This leads to academic rewards for these arguing students as suggested by Deborah Tannen, leaving the rest to believe that they are not good enough for the academia. Based on personal experience, I would like to add that such agonism demotivates students to explore knowledge outside of their field and creates an impression that they are never meant to explore topics that they are least expert at. This structure has to be reshaped to bring back the original goals of criticizing work so that there is a value for everyone in the
Well online learning can help with that in a major way. "Depending on the level of interaction in the classroom setting, shy students may be allowed to attend classes without providing alternative ways to communicate ideas". I say this because it only makes it harder if the student is shy. An example of this situation could be he or she could have a question, but thinks dumb so they won 't ask. I have done this several times myself.
Poverty consists of many disadvantages to children’s educational life. Professionals who work with children will integrate in order to allow children to have the best start in their early years. There are many reasons to why children are experiencing poverty, one of the reasons is families with low income. This is a disadvantage for children as they have limited access to resources to develop their learning. Parents may find it difficult in financing their money which then leads to children not receiving the resources, an example is what they need before they start school.
Equality in the education arena is linked with achievement, fairness, and opportunity. Depending on location, the likeliness of a person success or failure in life can be determined. Education is a guide to Upper, Moderate or Lower social class in American society. The environmental surrounding and resources greatly reflects the future. Any missing piece can place a child at a disadvantage to wealth with overwhelming misfortune of missed opportunities to witness the American value.
Poor children often come to school with a smaller understanding of words making it harder for them to quickly learn new words and discriminate among them. Another effect poverty can have on the education of a child is an unfinished academic degree. Children who watch their parents not finish school are more likely to not finish themselves. “Low-income children are at increased risk of leaving school without graduating,” (Engle & Black). Without an education, it is less likely a child will get a job earning enough to support themselves, therefore, continuing the problem of poverty.
6. Consequences of poverty Poverty has a negative impact on individuals, businesses, society and the economy as a whole, because it places a financial burden on everyone. a. Individuals • The main impact of poverty is personal, because the one most affected is the one who is poor. Individuals may become discouraged by poverty, and they lose their self-esteem and confidence because they cannot provide for themselves and their families.
Although it seems better to be learning with the same group and teacher everyday to have more discipline and comfort to ask questions students may be less willing to focus due to the repetitiveness of the schedule and knowing they can simply catch up tomorrow as I have seen at my own school. Schools seem to not be about individual learning but about learning in a setting that has a similar group interest as source D states. This idea of pleasing the group rather than talking to each student about what they do outside of school to help them manage their school work and outside activities is why so many students are stressed and see school as such a “...dull and ugly place,...” that is less of a priority and more of a burden. (Source E) Schools should allow students to modify their schedules to fit
Reflective teaching is a process of self- assessment and self- observation. Through reflective teaching, the teachers can explore and discover their own ideas and practices, which can make the teachers more proficient and skilled in teaching. Teaching is an intricate and highly accomplished process, and teachers must implement self evaluation (reflection) to make learning effective. The paper highlights the importance of reflective teaching and its impact on pedagogical process as well as language learners. It focuses on the teacher’s ideas; classroom practices to make teaching more refine and acquire a rich experience by amending the drawbacks.
