I believe that the advantages of having diversity in a collaborative learning environment are endless. I think that it is really enlightening to have someone with completely different social and cultural identities- we all need to be “taken out of our box” at times. It is too easy to generalize opinions of others and other things, and not acknowledge others thoughts and opinions. Throughout everyone’s differences, we are all surprised to learn that we really aren’t all that different. I also like that in an online setting; we aren’t able to judge people prematurely, which gives us a more open experience. As much as we all hate to admit it- we do judge people. I have learned to take all aspects of someone into consideration, and I enjoy learning and understanding people in their own different ways. I was once challenged with an assignment on reflection- the idea was to look at everything and everyone as grey- kind of like watching television on an old black-and-white set. I remember initially thinking, “This will be so easy!’’ and how silly it seemed. Once I started, I realized that we subconsciously narrow things down in our minds before they are even considered. When everything appears the same, it is treated with a different attitude and...

INTRODUCTION Higher education started in 1088 in Europe at the University of Bologna and although many changes have occurred, brick and mortar classrooms have been the primary means of education ever since. (Universitas de Bologna). However, the social media changes in the past ten years have altered the landscape more dramatically.

You may have to convert from feet to miles several times in this assignment. You can use 1 mile = 5,280 feet for your conversions. 1. Many people know that the weight of an object varies on different planets, but did you know that the weight of an object on Earth also varies according to the elevation of the object? In particular, the weight of an object follows this equation: , where C is a constant, and r is the distance that the object is from the center of Earth. a. Solve the equation for r. In order to solve for w=cr^-2 you first have to multiply by r^-2. The equation then changes and now looks like this wr^-2=c. We then have to divide by W on both so we now have r^-2=c/w. We now have to get take away the square root , so now the square root of c/w=r b. Suppose that an object is 100 pounds when it is at sea level. Find the value of C that makes the equation true. (Sea level is 3,963 miles from the center of the Earth.) For this equation it would look like this; w=C(R^2) w= 100 pounds, and R^2=3963^2 while C=__. Now we just simply plug these numbers into the equation 100=C(3963^2).......

Physical Security Policy Due in Week Five: Outline the Physical Security Policy. Merkow and Breithaupt (2006) state, “an often overlooked connection between physical systems (computer hardware) and logical systems (the software that runs on it) is that, in order to protect logical systems, the hardware running them must be physically secure” (p.165). Describe the policies for securing the facilities and the policies of securing the information systems. Outline the controls needed for each category as relates to your selected scenario. These controls may include the following: • Physical controls (such as perimeter security controls, badges, keys and combination locks, cameras, barricades, fencing, security dogs, lighting, and separating the workplace into functional areas) • Technical controls (such as smart cards, audit trails or access logs, intrusion detection, alarm systems, and biometrics) • Environmental or life-safety controls (such as power, fire detection and suppression, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) 1.1.

...Reformatted Appendix E EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE Ann Jacobs Axia College of University of Phoenix Axia College Material Appendix E Emotional Intelligence     Today, managers need well-trained employees but are finding they do not exist. As a result, corporations are providing additional training for their employees. One such training program that companies are adding to corporate learning environments is an awareness of emotional intelligence. Business managers are learning that successful managers need high Emotional Quotient (EQ) or Emotional Intelligence (EI) to work effectively.     Emotional intelligence is the ability to accurately perceive emotions in one’s self and others, to identify different emotional responses, and to use emotional information to make intelligent decisions (Goleman, 2000). A leading expert on EQ finds that “people good at managing relationships tend also to be self-aware, self-regulating, and empathetic” (Goleman, 2000, p. 33). Emotional intelligence is especially important “at the highest levels of the company, where differences in technical skills are of little importance. In other words, the higher the rank of the person, the more emotional intelligence capabilities are needed for decision making effectiveness” (Goleman, 1986, p. 94).       Emotional intelligence is crucial to a successful business career and for effective group performance (Goleman, 1986). The core competencies required for emotional intelligence are “the...

There are many advantages of diversity within a collaborative learning environment. Having many different people working together provides for many perspectives. You learn to work with people who have different views and values than yourself. In a collaborative environment you have the opportunity to discuss in detail how and why others view things the way they do. In a group people are able to speak about questions they have so they may better understand an issue or topic. Understanding where others stand on a subject gives you the opportunity to learn something new or even expand your own point of view. • How might factors such as diversity, attitude, learning, and work styles affect collaboration? In a collaborative environment factors like diversity, attitude, learning, and work style can affect the outcome of a project. People learn in many different ways and in a group you have to work together. If someone has a negative attitude it could cause problems for the group. With so many different backgrounds and race language could be a main factor for some people. For some people English is not their first language so it may be difficult for them to communicate their thoughts. If someone has trouble explaining their ideas can make a......

Students learn to work with all types of people. During small-group interactions, they find many opportunities to reflect upon and reply to the diverse responses fellow learners bring to the questions raised. Small groups also allow students to add their perspectives to an issue based on their differences. On the same note, a possible problem with cooperative learning and being biases can mess up a group effort. Group learning may reinforce stereotypes, biases which can stop one from being a critical thinker. Diversity in a learning environment can also help the group because everyone have different opinions and by putting your views it can help someone who is being close-minded see your point. As long as you got evidence to back you up. How might factors such as diversity, attitude, learning, and work styles affect collaboration? Diversity can affect collaboration, in so many ways, if the people involved are unwilling to put aside any differences that they may have and come up with a positive solution. If people have a bad attitude and can not settle their differences it can get in the way of......
