Integrating Ethical Use of Technology Term Paper

… One concept recently considered when trying to improve instructional technology is the "distribution of knowledge" theory. This is the idea of using technologies found at home and in other places to expand technology infusion beyond the walls of the classroom. If, for example, the typical electronic and computer games sold for enjoyment could be used for educational purposes, technology would truly become infused throughout the students' lives. The entire community could become involved in helping integrate technology for students. By dividing the technology experiences between classroom, workplace, home, and community, pedagogy is changed and improved. Learning occurs in all components of the student's life (Dede, 1996).

Imagine that you as a teacher have a student that is fortunate enough to be in a technology-rich classroom.…. [read more]


Using Technology to Support Academic Achievement for At-Risk Students Thesis

… ¶ … Technology to Support Academic Achievement for at-Risk Students

In an era of high-stakes testing, the mandates of the No Child Left Behind Act and school district budgets being stretched ever thinner because of dwindling state and federal budgets, identifying opportunities for improving the delivery of educational services to at-risk students has assumed new relevance and importance. Although the fundamental purpose of education has remained the same over the years, innovations in technology have presented a number of ways in which high-quality educational services can be delivered in the classroom and through distance learning programs. While at-risk students are different from their mainstream academic counterparts by virtue of a wide array of disabilities and other constraints to learning, they are also so-called "digital natives"….

… Teaching

Can at Risk student learn math through digital design? Through research, it has been determined that sat risk students to school because they enjoyed math and hands-on courses (i.e. art) or that have up-to-date technology. Along with that, students' favorite courses depended on the amount of self-expression they could achieve in the class. This was in regards to if the classes offered practical application, and whether the subject matter came to them easily, giving them a feeling of mastery or being smart (Cardon, 2004).

Achievement Gap Research Proposal

… Achievement Gap

"Go into any inner-city neighborhood, and folks will tell you that government alone can't teach kids to learn.

They know that parents have to parent, that children can't achieve unless we raise their expectations and turn off the television sets and eradicate the slander that says a black youth with a book is acting white."

Barack Obama, Keynote Address, Democratic National Convention, 2004

Effects of Technology on Disruptive Behavior From a Teacher's Perspective Multiple Chapters

… ¶ … Technology on Disruptive Behavior

What is the effect of teachers' attitude toward the implementation of a computer-based program on disruptive behavior?

Disruptive behavior from students is one of the nightmares that the teachers have to go through when they are teaching in class. The students with this problem keep on intervening appropriately in class while others are trying to read. The computer-based program will have different effects on disruptive behavior for the students. For some instances, it is possible that the effect will be positive leading to students having better attentiveness in class. However, there are cases when the computer-based programs will lead to even more disruptive behavior for the students. Thus, the effectiveness of these programs is all-dependent on the attitudes of….

Effects of Technology on Personal Relationships Dissertation

… ¶ … Technology on Personal Relationships

The rate at which information is shared in today's world is very different than just a few years ago. More and more, individuals, particularly college students are living both in the "real" world and in the virtual world provided by the internet, Facebook and other social media sites. There is a concern, raised by some, that because of the use of advanced technology, young people are no longer engaging in traditional forms of social capital or interpersonal engagement. The following study seeks to examine the impact social media has on the development of mature interpersonal relationships. Participants for the study will be college students at a designated college or university who will voluntarily participate in the study. Through the…. [read more]


Technology Grant / Literacy Ipads Term Paper

… These will include some apps for assistive technology as well as tools for running records and some language games. Teachers will also have a discretionary budget to make their own app and book selections without approval or recommendations from the team.

The use of the iPad will engage students and help them enjoy reading more. Teachers will be able to individualize instruction by providing students with interactive apps suited for them. Greater student engagement frees the teacher to work more intensely with individuals or small groups. Students will be more motivated to read, write and spell when using the apps, and the teacher can also incorporate educational games as rewards for finishing work. This will save considerable time for the teacher as s/he will not…. [read more]


Pedagogic Model: Teaching Technology in Special Education Dissertation

… " (Dougiamas, 1998) Such trivial constructivism, though, is the bedrock from which Glaserfelds more radical constructivism springs. He continues to state that because knowledge is constructed by the learner, and because no two learners are the same, knowledge itself is not absolute. There is a degree to which knowledge is an illusion, and every individual constructs their own conception of reality which (while susceptible to the demands of "real" or normal reality) does not necessarily align with the normal paradigm. Constructivism does embrace this relativistic and existential approach to reality, but it also holds as a primary value the idea of constraint which enables the thinkers to participate in social interaction and mainstream reality. (Glasersfeld)



One interesting area of constructionist theory is…. [read more]


Digital Divide Access to Technology Resources Thesis

… Digital Divide Access to Technology Resources

Impact of lack of technological resources on the student body and teachers, plus the problems schools have on inconsistent provision of IT sources.

In the first section of this paper we will focus on how lack or inequality of technological advancements impacts the student body and teachers as well as the problems that schools face due to inconsistent provision of IT sources.

Not more then two decades ago, when computer technology was still under development, computer knowledge and use within the school dynamics was one of the most intriguing and daring recommendations made by A Nation at Risk (1983). It is true that even when technological advancements were still being tested, the use of computer technology in various domains…. [read more]

Effectiveness of Academic Achievement Through the Use of Block Scheduling in High School Classrooms Thesis

… Academic Achievement Through Block Scheduling

Education and Block Scheduling

Introduction- The educational climate in contemporary America is not the same as it was in the late 20th century. There is a long tradition surrounding the manner in which the American educational system should be structured, dating back to the Founding Fathers. When we review a brief history of the American educational system up through No Child Left Behind, in fact, we find a series of pendelum swings that tend to result in a rather haphazard approach to certain academic sides of educational leadership. It is not the purpose of this study to debate the efficacy of constructivism, neo-constructivsm, Vygotsky, et al., Rather, it is to understand how educational research is not only necessary, but critical….

Assessing Risks and Consequences of Incorporating Social Networking Into Learning Environments Introduction

… ¶ … Risks and Consequences of Incorporating Social Networking into Learning Environments

The pervasive adoption of social networking is changing the approaches, expectations, methods and patterns individuals and organizations rely on daily to communicate and connect with each other. The economic, pedagogical, sociological and technology-based factors are also changing how long-term learning is achieved, given student's early mastery of Web 2.0 skill sets and familiarity with social networks. In many instances, students' mastery of these skill sets and insights into how each social network they participate on vary in terms of acceptable and unacceptable behavior, comments, communication, collaboration and sharing far surpass those of their instructors. Compounding these factors is the hype that social networks receive daily, often based on anecdotal data, of increasing the…. [read more]


Future of Education in USA Term Paper

… Student Centered Teaching

Progressivism, Social Reconstructionism and Existentialism vs." Essentialism and Perennialism

The face of the American educational system has been changing dramatically over the past several decades. Since the inception of standardized education in the U.S., the fabric of society itself has undergone dramatic changes. Yet, the educational system continues to promote the paradigms that prevailed since the systems very beginning. It can be argued that the system is in need of some dramatic changes if we are to compete in a world where globalization means coping with increasing competition. This research will explore teacher centered and student centered philosophies. It will support the hypothesis that student centered philosophies benefit the student more than teacher centered philosophies.

Standardized education was developed on teacher-centered philosophies.…. [read more]


Academic Dishonesty Among College Students Research Paper

… Academic Dishonesty Among College Students

Academic Dishonesty: Social Perception

A factor that has considerable influence in the phenomenon of academic dishonesty is social perception. This can occur from a variety perspectives; most notably from the perspective of students attempting to justify their behavior; also from the perspective of academic leaders attempting to curb cheating practices; and from the perspective of researchers who attempt to understand the phenomenon.

Etter, Cramer and Finn (2006, p. 134-5) cite studies indicating that the student perspective that the norms of the society in which they function allow cheating combines with generally favorable attitudes to cheating to encourage it. Other factors that could contribute to the urge to cheat include a younger age, moderate to poor performance in the classroom and…. [read more]

Community Colleges in America Term Paper

… In addition, community colleges have traditionally striven to increase access to higher education through an open admissions policy -- often not even requiring a high school diploma -- and low, or no, tuition." (Kane and Rouse 65)

Joseph F. Kett's "The Pursuit of Knowledge under Difficulties: From Improvement to Adult Education in America, 1750-1990" deals with the evolution of adult education over the years. It starts out with self-education as it is portrayed in American history before it was formalized: the first universities didn't appear in the United States until the late 1800's. The author also deals with various class and social differences that were caused by the lack of availability of adult education although the advent of industry ultimately necessitated this development. As the…. [read more]


Learning Styles and Student Achievement Term Paper

… Learning Styles and Student Achievement

According to William Watson Purkey and John M. Novak, in order to teach a student, you have to be able to reach the student. They do not mean 'reach' in the physical sense, as in touching the student, but rather making a mental or emotional connection between the teacher and the student (Purkey, 1984).

Opening up to students is very important for teachers. While it is obviously not appropriate for a teacher to confide intimate personal details to the class, or gossip about others to try to be more accepted, there are ways that a teacher can seem more 'real' to the students. For example, crying over something very sad or letting the students know when the teacher is getting…. [read more]


Behavioral Engagement Thesis

… (Parsons & Taylor, 2011)

Student engagement helps the students in getting involved in their own learning. It removes the element of the teacher as a supervisor and gives the students an option to use their own way of learning. In this way, a student is able to use his own method to learn about a certain subject. The student can also share his way of learning with others by telling them. This will lead to positive criticism of the methods of that student and the idea of involving a student in his studies brings about fruitful results. (Theilheimer, 1991)

Academic engagement pushes a student to take risks. A student will take different routes to solve a problem in order to find the fastest way out.…. [read more]


Perceived Effectiveness of College Programs for Non-Traditional Students by Recent Graduates Literature Review

… Non-Traditional Students

In the 1980s a major switch happened in the culture and population of colleges and universities. Instead of the stereotypical 18-year-old recent high school graduate, the non-traditional student became the norm on campus. Most authorities define a non-traditional student as someone who is over 25 years of age, attends college or university on a part-time basis, commute to school, or any combination of these characteristics. From 1970 to 1985, the growth rate for non-traditional students was 114%, compared to a much smaller increase of 15% in the number of younger, traditional students. Nontraditional students increased over time from one in four undergraduates in 1986 to nearly one in three (31%) in 1992 (Horn and Carroll, 1996). Part-time students have also increased 87%. Full-time…. [read more]


Government Subsidized Student Loans Thesis

… Higher education is taken to be a safeguard against unemployment with statistics indicating that unemployment among university graduates was 4.4% whereas for people who had not completed secondary school, unemployment was near 11.5%. (The Economist, 2011)

Although the phenomenon, with the state supporting education may sound ideal, and other emerging countries too might try to emulate the model in an effort to bring their economies up to par, several contrary view points have been voiced by critics that question the economic and political feasibility of the subsidized student loans.

Foremost is the startling figure of $1 trillion worth of outstanding student loans. Secondly there are arguments that this loan is for students who have already completed their studies and hence subsidizing it further will not…. [read more]

The Impact of E-Learning on Education at All Levels

The traditional geographical, linguistic, cultural and spatial parameters shaping education are being altered today by patterns of technological innovation. The face of education has changed at every level due to the availability of new computing and telecommunication opportunities that are quite literally removing the boundaries of the classroom. Those conditions previously thought of as necessities through which educational instruction is to be carried out are today proving to be restraints of the past as the internet and computer mediated avenues to information, knowledge and instruction are providing a wealth of new ways to reach students. This refers to a process known as electronic learning or e-learning. For the purposes of this examination, e-learning will refer…. [read more]

Against Student Tracking Term Paper

… Finally, an inclusive classroom is better from both a learning and a social perspective. Harry & Milbourne (1999) describe ability grouping as "a sorting process with unsettling social consequences." Society does not accept that people should be grouped by race and class, instead there is a focus on equality and on accepting and understanding others. Beginning this practice in schools is of social benefit to students. Ascher (1992) describes the first of Wheelock's six factors for successful detracking in schools as a culture of detracking. This culture is described as one where "Teachers, parents, and students alike believe in the right and ability of students from every background to learn from the best kind of curriculum. They are also convinced that all students can gain…. [read more]

Classroom-Based Instructional Planning or Instructional Delivery Term Paper

… ¶ … Technology

The introduction of new technologies over the past two decades, especially the computer and the Internet, offers teachers an effectual and informative way to enhance educational instruction and variety for their students. However, studies show that the most effective incorporation of technology into classroom curricula varies considerably based on a number of factors, such as the teacher's comfort level, the amount of training and the availability of the technology. In order to meet their students' needs, teachers must be knowledgeable about the technology and understand its most beneficial classroom applications, develop new curricula that reasonably integrate the electronic methodology, and determine how all students can have accessibility to the technology and assess the results. Teachers cannot escape the fact that today's classrooms…. [read more]


Preventing Dropouts Among Minority Middle Term Paper

… Apparent changes in self-esteem developed over the eight-week period.

Daisey & Jose-Kampfner (2002) report that the dropout rate is currently increasing for Latinos. This results from students feeling discouragement, which they attribute to teacher stereotyping, low expectations, and tracking. Latinos face special social and cultural pressures that prompt many students, especially girls, to leave school during the middle school years. Confusion also comes from mixed messages from home and school, with often competing values about career, marriage, and motherhood (Canedy, 2001). Studies (Banfield, Johnson, Thomas, & Thieroff, 2002) have also identified the following reasons for Latino dropouts: stereotyping of new students and a lack of self-confidence.

Martin, Tobin, and Sugai (2002) found research that identified the top ten reasons that students dropped out of schools…. [read more]
