How does the history of American education provide a context for multiculturalism?
Throughout the years the education system has had problems and the issues are still being address. In the 1800’s and 1900’s the school were intended for rich white students. Women were not allowed to attend schools as they were prepared to their role as a wife. As education changed, so did the multiculturalism within the schools. Students from all walks of life were provided an education. Education was now provided to woman as well as men. In the 1960’s the African Americans started a movement to receive the same quality of education as white students. The African Americans were bus to other white schools to integrate the school system and make universal system. In the beginning this was feared and white students voice their opinion against the union between the two cultures. Over the next decade the school system found a large number of Spanish speaking students attending the school system. The school system consists only of English speaking school and had to adapt to students that will use English as a second language. The school started programs and classes for Spanish speaking classes and hired Spanish speaking teachers.
This country is a large melting pot that includes many cultures. It was always a difficult task to bring all of these cultures together the way the city neighborhoods were segregated. The movement to have students bus to school to integrate the schools was used to mix the different culture and make sure all students had the right to receive the same quality education. I feel some of the issues that come from this movement are the testing part of education for different cultures. Studies show that white students test higher then African American students and some African American believe that the test was based around white students.
Some of the advantages of a…...

...Technology Literature Review Cox, A. (2011). “The acceptability of e-technology to monitor and access patient symptoms following palliative radiotherapy for lung cancer.” Palliative Medicine, 25(7), 675-681. This is a very interesting article written by A. Cox. The article states how e-technology dramatically increased new ways to obtain the patient’s symptom information, which was self-reported. They conducted study to provide lung cancer patients post palliative radiotherapy. There were 17 clinicians identified as patients who met the criteria, but there was only one clinician that gave approval for the patients. The physicians were very positive about palliative care. The study proved that these groups of patients were too old. The article stated that “to encourage acceptance of e-technology within palliative care, emphasis is needed on actively promoting the contribution of technology outcomes and the patient experience (Cox, 2011).

...Section Five: Technology Review In creating a list and constructing a plan of how these pieces of technology could be integrated into a classroom, and how they would be more effective and efficient or would increase student learning can be a very challenging effort to complete. During my research I found a lot of games and websites that were very interesting for classroom technology. * Math games: You are able to purchase math board games from the educational learning games website. Also in researching the math games there are some particular games that you might observe that are cost effective and cheap since it does not take that much to play them, and it is a test for some creativity level of individuals. * Educational songs and videos games: It is definitely known that kids of today love to sing and love watching videos. This makes it easier for teachers to teach small kids and this is a learning process for all kids to enjoy. Even sometimes this can relate to eating healthy, the sounds they make, numbers, and letters. This is certainly what some teachers want for their children in the classroom which incorporates fun for them. These are games that are in demand to rehabilitate and are also criticized for violent content and a Childs free time, but also in a sense it is becoming known for and defended as harmless entertainment... * Art and Music games: These games are fun online as well, which the children can learn all different types of music in......

Article Review on Technology in Education

...Introduction Technology, when used as an aid in learning, does much more than educate the human individual it also motivates the student to learn. I chose to review the article on the pros and cons of Ipads in the classroom. There was a study that was conducted at the University of Notre Dame for seven weeks by Professor Corey Angst. These students used the Ipad devices for reading and other course related work. The original concept was to use the Ipad as a e-reader and to replace the actual textbook. In the case study though, Angst found that the Ipad could be used as an aggregation tool. Students that were working on a project could brainstorm and put their thoughts down in the tablet and then save the work in a online storage site. The next time the group got together, all students had access to the information. Another outstanding feature is that because they all had the same device, there would not be any technical issues or compatibility problems. ( During the time of the surveys done throughout the semester, most of the students said the iPads helped them to organize their schedules. They said were able to 1. take the initiative to explore additional course topics 2. help manage their time, 3. provided new functions/tools for learning, 4. increased their learning 5. and made their courses more interesting. I thought it was interesting that they students also used the Ipads to study other courses and to also use the......

...Technology Article Review When it comes to technology within the health care industry and in the field of health management, it can be safely said that it is evolving each day. How we use technology like smartphones and tablets to document, communicate and research to other medical professionals and keep records of essential information. In the article, Developing a Health Care Technology Strategy for Population Health Management, according to the author, “the Accountable Care Organization (ACO) model, coupled with the concepts of affordable care act, is predicted to lower the cost of health care delivery. Part of the anticipated reduction in costs is a predicted significant improvement in the development of technology.” (Keil, 2013). The author continues to elaborate on the concept that healthcare facilities have adopted the use of electronic health care systems for treatment, communicating and diagnosis. Just like the Electronic Medical Records (EMR), the author believes that they will use a system with technologies that is capable of engaging multiple of sites that offers the same health care service to the use of one technology base, called cloud computing technology. They use this to where medical personnel can have access to individual health records and other health information, any time and anywhere, but even though there might be concerns of safety issues about exchanging patients vital information in the cloud system, it will allow people who live in areas with...

...Running head: TECHNOLOGY ARTICLE REVIEW Technology Article Review Technology Article Review Technology is quickly changing everyday and everywhere. Years ago, if you had a question you either had to research it in the encyclopedia or talk to someone who knew the answer to the question. Today the answer to any question you have in the palm of your hands. Technological advancements are great and important, especially in the healthcare system. All the advancements that have been developed have been extremely important in diagnosing health issues and being able to cure, help, or prevent other health issues. We live in a world where everyone has a smartphone or tablet. The same things are in the hospitals and other healthcare facilities. Not only to medical professionals have the provided equipment in the facilities to help treat and diagnose health issues, but now they can also use their smartphones and tablets to get more real time information instead of waiting around for a few hours to find out what is going on. When a patient goes in for an x-ray, the doctors can now pull up the x-ray on a tablet as soon as it is ready. Pictures can now be taken on smartphones and sent to whomever to get quicker results. This may not be the case in all hospitals as of yet, but it is for some. Information systems are now more digital to the point of being able to bring up your medical file without having it on hand. For example, military hospitals have this in place. All those...

...Technology Article Review Evelyn Barnum HCS/212 Monday, April 6, 2015 Deatrice Willis Health Care Experience The famous question, should we welcome or fear new technology? Surgeons can replace a heart valve with a plastic and metal one that unfolds once threaded through arteries. These are repairs that used to be made by cracking open the chest, and a very major surgery, now it is a simple surgery. In recent years cancer meds make the promise of diseases treatable (Skinner, 2013). Technology makes storing all the records in electronic systems easily accessible and highly convenient. However not all new technology is electronic based. So we will look at some different technological discoveries and how they differ from our normal thoughts of technology and still bottom line save lives. Looking at all the studies and ways of technology are important as it makes a difference on how and what the patient needs. Studies show that the category with the greatest benefit is low-cost antibiotics for bacterial infections, a cast for a simple fracture, or simply an aspirin and certain medications for heart attack patients (Skinner, 2013). CPR or cardiopulmonary resuscitation is simply human based and that saves as many lives as open heart surgeries ever have. Not all treatments in this category are inexpensive, things like antiretroviral drugs for people with HIV (Aids) may cost as much as $20,000 per year, but they are still an awesome technology based treatment......

...themselves. The introduction and literature review is broken down into two main parts: poverty and micro-level behavior, and poverty and the environment. Research on subsistence marketplaces has adopted the bottom up behavioral perspective for micro-level. This research has examined underlying variables that affect how the poor interact with marketplaces, specifically focusing on behavior such as thinking styles, emotional factors, and social relationships. It found that individuals are concrete in their thinking in the following ways. Individuals who subsist use information at a tangible level rather than interpreting or combining it to reach more abstract conclusions. Second, individuals focus on the “what” and “how” rather than the “why” in abstract realms. This suggests a focus on the immediate in terms of environmental issues. Another tendency is pictographic thinking, which is reflecting a comfort level with what is perceived rather than acquired. Another important finding from the research is how big of an emotional toll poverty takes on an individual and how self-esteem is greatly affected, especially in how important it is in marketplace encounters. Self esteem is dependent on how an individual thinks as well as how a person feels. The literature is summarized by the emphasis on immediacy and a focus on interactions of the marketplace. Poverty and the environment is the second area of focus for literature reviews. Overall, environments in poverty are......

Information Technology Career Review

...Portfolio Project Professional Plan Bryant & Stratton College Southtowns Campus James Armstrong Network Security Mrs. Sedor March 19, 2014 This paper examines different aspects of the Information Technology field and related career paths. Certain aspects of the IT field were researched and explored in an attempt to learn more about the job market and the IT field. The categories that were explored in each job title were; pay scale, industry growth rate, responsibilities as well as educational background and training. Also examined was the possible over saturation of the job market by qualified but untested applicants in a seriously competitive market. (the number of students expected to graduate versus the projected job market). Information Technology Network Security is an ever changing, growing field of study. One cannot get involved in the careers it encompasses without having a basic love of learning, even on a subconscious level. New technology is constantly being developed and so anyone in the IT field must continually be retrained, for lack of a better term. This holds true even more so for the software side of the field. Consider the firewall or antivirus software, every time the computer system is turned on the system checks for updates to its library of known viruses. That means somewhere on the other end of the internet connection is a network security technician who is constantly researching and investigating new......

Review of Disruptive Technologies

...Riemannian Factors and Reversibility L. Harris Abstract ˜ Let η ≤ E. Recent interest in associative, analytically partial, discretely quasi-extrinsic curves has centered on deriving t-symmetric subalegebras. We show that every left-integrable factor is connected. This could shed important light on a conjecture of Euler. Moreover, this reduces the results of [27] to well-known properties of Lagrange functors. 1 Introduction Is it possible to construct conditionally anti-Levi-Civita algebras? On the other hand, unfortunately, we cannot assume that R ≤ η . In this context, the results of [27] are highly relevant. Here, ˜ uniqueness is clearly a concern. It has long been known that a is globally Leibniz [40, 31]. ¯ It has long been known that every p-adic monodromy is hyperbolic [15]. Is it possible to study pseudo-negative elements? In [19], the authors address the existence of Artinian random variables under the additional assumption that log e7 ∈ ∼ 1 ± v (C) s(ft,O )−5 , 10 ∧ · · · ∧ −π ∞ − q dy + · · · ± sinh−1 (i) . We wish to extend the results of [14] to subsets. Recent interest in systems has centered on classifying degenerate isometries. It was Brahmagupta who first asked whether topoi can be studied. Recent interest in points has centered on deriving linearly ultra-Smale, ultra-covariant, geometric paths. Moreover, we wish to extend the results of [26] to algebraically Poisson functionals. A useful survey of the subject can be......

Essentials of Information Technology Chapter 8 Review The Digitial Living Network Alliance is an organization that works to standardize different kinds of appliances and network devices used in our homes. Mobile devices have evolved and are now able to do multiple tasks at once. Smart phones can video conference like laptops. Tablets are touch screen sensitive like smart phones. Notebooks and ultra-books can run traditional operating systems and they are lightweight. Devices have a significant overlap in the tasks they can perform, so it's important to learn the difference so you can decide what technology matches your needs. Telephony is the use of equipment to provide voice communications over a distance. A smart phone performs many tasks here is just a few: Access to the internet, voice recording features, the ability to play and organize music files, GPS services and digital image and video capture. Cellular phones refer to all phones that use mobile, cellular technology. Many cell phones are considered smartphones but less powerful cell phone are available. Feature phones are inexpensive phones that have modest processors, simpler interfaces, and often no touch screen. Feature phones and smartphons have components as any computer: a processor, memory, and input output devices. Smartphones use a CPU and interface so powerful that they can perform the same tasks as much more expensive computers like: videoconfering, recording and editing HD video and broadcasting live streaming video. Smartphones use the Android......

...Integumentary and Muscular systems As one person gets older and ages does their skin age also? If so what are some natural consequences of why this happens? Can you prevent having cancerous skin as you age? Skin thins as cell activity declines and as the network of elastic and collagen fibers supporting it decreases. Therefore this cell activity makes older people more likely to get hurt or injured along with skin infections such as moles that lead to cancer. Older people are more sensitive to sunlight and sweat glands are natural to a human. Some older men and women produce fibrosis which is muscles with large amounts of fibrous connective tissue. This is also a natural process that is uncontrollable by one self. To prevent having wrinkled skin or chances of cancer there are several things that you can do. One thing is to avoid outdoor activities when possible. When being exposed to the sunlight is sure to wear sunscreen with SPF of 30 or higher, also wearing a hat to protect your head and face is a way to help your skin cells to maintain a lower level. One person usually builds up its blood flow and gets it going when exercising. The older one is the longer it takes for blood flow to increase throughout the body because of the performance of their heart while exercising. Despite a person’s age you can usually build your muscles by easily climbing stairs, walking on a straight line, hopping on one foot or just performing regular activities daily. As......
