Zoos, there are more than 10,000 in the world and more than 700 million people visit them annually each year (AZA). Some people go for entertainment, some go for work, and some go for studies. These facilities are normally owned by government, cities, or privately owned. Zoos are able to exist because of taxpayers, grants, funds, and annual visitors that come to zoos. One question has been lingering around about zoos though do they really benefit animals or are they human entertainment?
Do Large Lecture Halls Offer a Good Learning Environment Higher education comes in many forms, from small private colleges with one professor for every seven students, to enormous universities which utilize teaching assistants for almost all offered classes. The question I have as a student at Purdue, a university with around 35,000 students, is are large lecture halls with more than two hundred students effective places for learning to occur? When there are that many pupils in a classroom, it is nearly impossible for an instructor to take attendance. What is the motivation to attend class? Further, are students able to understand material presented in a classroom when there are hundreds more people in the classroom rustling papers, dropping pens, and whispering sarcastic comments about the lecture?
The learners define self-pace learning” (Kiryakova, G. 2009). Some would say that to be a good quality of distance learning, because even though students have deadlines to meet they are still able to learn and apply the material without as much pressure as a traditional school setting. “Distance education gives an opportunity to everyone to learn throughout their entire lifetime” (Kiryakova, G. 2009). Distance learning does not discriminate either. People of all ages, and even people who have not been in school in over a decade, will find comfort in online schooling.
Human beings start out initially as a blank slate and could be trained to learn anything, provided that it was presented in an appropriate way (Multiple Intelligences and Education).

Despite the differences between libraries they all share the same library homepage. The Yale University Library site brings all the libraries and buildings together for the ease of the user. Bringing so many libraries together is no easy task, especially when a large portion of your user base is incoming undergraduates. The following is short assessment of the library website conducted by a non-student/ faculty/ staff member. General Assessment The home page for the Yale libraries provides a lot of information.
Guidelines for structuring group learning experiences for adults conclude the Brief. The Nature of Group Learning Little research exists on how learning occurs in groups (Cranton 1996; Dechant, Marsick, and Kasl 1993). Futhermore, when forming groups, adult educators tend to focus on helping learners work effectively together rather than on helping them understand the learning processes that may be occurring in the group (Dechant, Marsick, and Kasl 1993). By drawing on Habermas' domains of knowledge and interests, Cranton (1996) has developed a helpful way of thinking about how groups can accomplish or facilitate different types of learning. Cranton suggests that there are three types of group learning, each affiliated with the following kinds of knowledge proposed by Habermas-- instrumental (scientific, cause-and-effect information) communicative (mutual understanding and social knowledge) emancipatory (increased self-awareness and transformation of experience) As outlined by Cranton, the type of learning that occurs in groups varies according to the learning tasks and goals.
Simulations "What I hear, I forget; what I see, I remember; what I do, I understand." Confucius, 451 BC General As young children, we all learn by doing. Toddlers learn to walk on their own with their parents standing by as guides, providing a safe environment that makes it possible for the child to learn. When a child enters the "formal education" system, unfortunately this rich environment of learning by doing often disappears. The education system is still stuck in the industrial age with classrooms more often designed for teaching rather than for learning purposes.
Therefore, during the second visit Steve had the opportunity to realize how educated and excited the children were about the museum and its exhibit, for the children had learned about this topic prior to entering the museum. At my internship at the Historical Society, I got to observe a second grade walking tour and I remember being mesmerized about how educated the children were about Frederick’s history, but also how the students were applying the information they obtained in class into the tour. Both Steve and I learned that in-classroom preparation prior to visiting a museum can truly make an education program more rewarding for the students and the museum
Another difference is that in Western education, teachers usually provide a list of reference books or videos related classes to help students preview what they will learn. In comparison, Asian teachers rarely give students academic materials to prepare their lessons. (Samuelowicz 1987) Indicate students are unusual to be afforded some extracurricular materials from the school or teachers,
Synchronous is were students appear online to complete the assignment together and asynchronous is just the opposite. I enjoy the discussions and debates with students but for working adults or stay at home parent this can cause difficulties. Non Traditional Students have access to V Camp , facilitator 's , and other cohorts as well. Although we are not in a classroom setting we still have plenty of benefits of the virtual
