Ralph W. Tyler's Basic Principles of Curriculum and Instruction

- In 1949, a small book had a big impact on education. In just over one hundred pages, Ralph W. Tyler presented the concept that curriculum should be dynamic, a program under constant evaluation and revision. Curriculum had always been thought of as a static, set program, and in an era preoccupied with student testing, he offered the innovative idea that teachers and administrators should spend as much time evaluating their plans as they do assessing their students. Since then, Basic Principles of Curriculum and Instruction has been a standard reference for anyone working with curriculum development....   [tags: Curriculum and Instruction]

Energy-Exposed Instruction Set Architectures

- Energy-Exposed Instruction Set Architectures 1 Introduction Power consumption is emerging as a key factor limiting computational performance in both mobile and tethered systems. Although there has been significant progress in low-power circuit design and low-power CAD and some work in low-power microarchitectures, there has been little work to date at the level of instruction set architecture (ISA) design for low power computing. Modern ISAs such as RISC or VLIW are based on extensive research into the effects of instruction set design on performance, and provide a purely performanceoriented hardware-software interface....   [tags: IT Technical Process]

Measuring Progress in the Technological Transformation of Writing Instruction

- Measuring Progress in the Technological Transformation of Writing Instruction The most provocative rhetorical moment for any new enterprise is the moment in which someone opines what the enterprise will do, will cause, or will enable. Inventor Dean Kamen claims that the Segway will revolutionize personal transportation. But we must wait and see, with varying degrees of anticipation, whether this comes true. In any popular cultural innovation one cares to name, there is an explicit or implicit claim about the way that the innovation will “change” or “transform” life, its quality, or its effect....   [tags: Technology]

Giving Language Back:An Argument Against Isolated Grammar Instruction

- Giving Language Back:An Argument Against Isolated Grammar Instruction Who knew that kids liked to read. I certainly didn’t. Let me qualify that. I have known a few kids that liked reading. My daughter likes to read, but I assumed she would, being the daughter of an obsessive reader and all. I have known other child-readers through the years, but since they were nerds like me, I never guessed that “normal,” MTV-watching, note-writing, gum-popping, 20/20-visioned kids would like to read as well. Fortunately, during my student teaching experience, my classes of seventh-graders proved me wrong....   [tags: Argumentative]

Journal Response on Teaching

- I used this quote to introduce a lesson on the different ways of learning to my undergraduate content methods class. I felt the words also spoke to both the essence of our assigned texts and my state of reflection. The readings increased my awareness of the variances of issues facing higher education and the viability of multiple solutions. I realized that it is much easier to shoot an idea down than it is to consider a novel solution. Ramsden’s (1992) use of the Whitehead (1992) statement, “I merely utter the warning that education is a difficult problem, to be solved by no one simple formula” leads me to believe that he holds a similar multi-approach disposition towards higher education is...   [tags: Education, Instruction, Teaching]
