INTRODUCTION NATURE This refers to all the evolutionary factors that have that have shaped the genetics that we inherit from our parents. Nature determine the range of our human potential.Naturists believe that the knowledge humans have about the world is innate. Therefore human development is largely determined by heredity. NURTURE This refers to all the things that have influenced us since we began to grow. Nurture affects the way our human potential is actualized.
On the other hand, the evolutionary perspective states that the mind of human beings are predominantly composed of highly specialized systems that are designed with special features to solve certain issues, the theory further postulates that the problems are consistent and some have confronted ancestors and digs deeper into the lineage. This paper seeks to compare these two theories. Bronfenbrenner 's Ecological Model As aforementioned, the Bronfenbrenner 's ecological model puts great emphasis on the individual’s ecological system on a basis for understanding their development. It sees
Barbara Latten: "I think that inherently we are who we are. However, I do believe our environment whether it be our home, extended family, or neighborhood tends to shape how we think and our world view, and how we respond. Some people can rise above environmental obstacles due to the strength of their genetic traits." Outline I.) Introduce psychology.
What is positive psychology? Positive psychology is the study of variousprocesses and conditions that contribute to the overall development or the optimal functioning of people, groups, and institutions. Let us try toanalyze why the positive psychology movement has grown so quickly in just a few years. It is very much essential for the overall development of an individual and it also guided researchers to understudy phenomena. This discussion ends with addressing some criticisms and fallbacks of positive psychology.
I envision myself making a positive impact on people’s lives by transforming spaces. I am extremely excited to be able to make a connection between the natural and human systems by understanding how the natural environment goes about and the ways in which humans interact with it. It is remarkable to think that I will be able to design and find or create solutions that will benefit people, wildlife and the environment. I think that what is absolutely appealing about the kind of job I will be doing after I complete my studies is that everyday will be interesting because no days on the job will be alike. I will be facing different challenges which will make the world more liveable while protecting the environment.
Therefore, evolution favors traits that promote genetic diversity because the conditions on Earth are always changing, and genetic variability provides organisms a better chance of survival than organisms that do not have genetic variability. 2. Describe a situation in which asexual
Nature is a, hopefully, forever lasting resource that we will always be able to use as inspiration for not only design but other aspects of life. We have made use of many different characteristics from nature and amimals and as scientists are discovering new species of nature there is more and more insporation for
Introduction: “Creativity is now seen as a crucial element in education” according to (Duffy, 2006). Creativity is important for mental health from an early age and is a way of demonstrating quality education and care in a setting. Practitioners are encouraged to promote children to be creative and imaginative in their centres in order to foster a love of learning. “Creativity is fundamental to successful learning. Being creative enables the children in early years to make connections between one are of learning and another and to extend their understanding” (QCa 2000b:116).
‘Constructivist’ theory of learning is considered to be the main developmental theories of learning currently working in the area of special educational needs. Constructivism is ‘child-centred development’. It is an active and building process, where learners use what they already know to learn new things, and infer new knowledge based on their interaction with new experiences outside themselves, using information and ideas from within themselves, or already obtained. In other words, knowledge is considered to be socially constructed because it is obtained in partnership between new experiences and knowledge already acquired. Constructivism is useful for understanding the way in which a child may progress educationally, which is important
The bioecological model of human development is defined as “the phenomenon of continuity and change in the biopsychological characteristics of human beings, both as individuals and as a group” (Brofenbrenner and Morris, 2006). This model of development has four defining properties: 1) Process, 2) Person, 3) Context and 4) Time. Process is the core of the model and involves the interaction between the individual and the environment, termed proximal processes. These proximal processes primarily drive human development but its influence on human development varies, depending on the characteristics of the Person, the Context and Time
Hi Tiffany, There are so many innovative ways we can use technology to better our experiences as educators. We can use technology to support diversity among many methods in which can be used. I love observing my students exploring with technology with many learning subjects. This experience helps them to become better communicators and problem solvers. Thank you Tiffany I wish you the best of your endeavors.
