My philosophy used to be that if I could write a paper beautifully the first time, edits were unnecessary. After receiving grades I did not like, however, I realized the importance of taking the time to fully revise my writing. Now, editing is the fun part of writing because the writing is, for the most part, finished. Few activities are more satisfying than finding that misplaced comma, misspelled word, or misplaced modifier. It can get complicated when I have to change, move, or delete entire sentences, but I would rather fix a few sentences than write an entire paper the night before it is due.
Why should students learn to use computers and software proficiently and how do we choose what students learn and how? Technology is present in every part of our daily lives whether it's related to personal, business, or educational endeavors. Most people agree that there is a need for the younger generation to understand how computers work for them. However, there is still a slight disconnect as to what computer skills are needed to be enforced on middle school/high school students and what they need to master to ensure survival once they leave high school. Is a student considered knowledgeable in computers if they can play computer games, chat online, and surf the internet?
I repeated the words over and over again like a singer trying to memorize the lyrics to a song, until my dad finally came out the office. My dad told us “You are now officially students of P.S.157. Now it time to go to your classrooms” in Russian. The first stop was Monica’s class room. We walked through the never ending hallway, searching for Monica’s classroom like detectives on a mission to find a key to the unknown door.
I believe that I prepared enough information for thirteen minutes of speaking, but in reality, especially with all the transition I would need to make, I should have prepared enough material for only five or six minutes. As I was preparing, I read the information out loud and timed myself, but as I can see the time did not account for all the anomalies that would happen. I believe that this created pressure for me and it definitely made me stumble intellectually, as I did not have any flow because it felt like I had a time limit and if I did not reach the end of the material, theoretically saying, a bomb would implode. To self-assess myself, I would have to say I know could do much better. This was the first time that I hav... ... middle of paper ... ...tive aspect of the microteaching activity was it allowed me to witness other students participating in the microteaching activity.
That was not entirely true because fifteen minutes before the presentation, they were typing up the information. I chose to have a positive attitude about the whole thing and help as much as possible. When we actually presented, it was nerve racking because I did not know what to really expect from everyone. I already hate public speaking as it is. We did speak well overall, but our lack of preparation showed.
The Search Prior to my search, I was curious to why computers were not as effective as the general public assumed, as Oppenheimer had concluded. Dr. Herr, a professor of Education at California State Univerisity, Northridge, and my Methods of Teaching Science instructor, provides his seminars with ample uses for computers in education. This gave me the desire to further pursue the value of computers in the classroom on a larger scale; incorporating views and opinions nationwide. My search for answers came from Internet resources. Using the Google search engine, I decided to inquire information expounding on Oppenheimer’s article, “The Digital Rights War.” The topic of this article centered on the pros and cons of computers in the classroom.
We write because we have something to say. We write because it represents our voice and our passion for a certain topic worth writing about. In the beginning of this quarter, I felt incapable of writing a decent college essay and terrified of how people would judge my writing. However, as the weeks went by, I realized that writing takes time and it has a building process that needs to occur in order to develop something worthwhile. In ten weeks, I found the ability to write papers with the help of writing strategies, reading certain texts, and attending numerous workshops.
It is really an adventure to be back with books and words and reading. I am also amazed that I never could read more of Him when it wasn't an assignment. And how is it that when I am told to write "a 3-5 page essay" I can only come through with two-and-a-half, but a "one-page response" always wants to be twenty pages long?] I finished reading SAR around ten o'clock tonight. I could have taken it all in one big gulp when I began a week ago, but I couldn't do that.
Do I need extra multimedia capabilities? Will I be using the Internet?” Many people go out and buy a computer without acknowledging what should be included in the purchase. Many businesses and organizations use computers for projects such as graphs, calendars, calculators, word processors, and even filing tax returns online. When calling the doctors office to make an appointment the receptionist will ask for the name. Why is this?
There are tons and tons of information that you can get online, but sometimes its kinda mind boggling. So outline your research. Start with: search for colleges, universities and private education provider that has an online education. Next read the college and uni information about online education, make sure that their curriculum is the one that will suit your preference. Then send an e-mail to make an inquiries regarding the course and other requirements (if any) that you need to
