Dispositions of a teacher are some of the most important topics we covered through the semester in Education 201. Teacher dispositions, if followed correctly, can be looked at as the prototypical teacher who can arrive at a school and not only help out the school, but also help of the children. The main dispositions of learning consist of the commitment to diversity, commitment to ethics, commitment to the teaching profession, and knowing the philosophies and theories of education. Throughout a semester of a number of speakers, class documents, and Martin Haberman’s Star Teachers, I feel like I have learned how important these dispositions truly are for the success of a teacher and what I need to work on to better myself to become a true star educator. The first disposition of teaching is the commitment to diversity. Commitment to diversity is a strong point of mine because I have first handedly seen the benefits of diversity in the schools. In one hand I went to a middle school that was about 30% African American, 25% Hispanic, and 45% White. On the other hand I went to a high school that was almost 95% White, 4% African American, and 1% Hispanic. I feel like the students I went to school with in the diverse community had a more open mind about society in a whole which clearly made for better learning. I also observed that the teachers at the diverse school seemed to have more motivation to drive the students to succeed. The more diverse schools also seem to have a more positive attitude towards diverse cultures and learners. The more open a student is to other cultures, the more open he or she is with society. Diversity, a key to live, is extremely important in the school system which traces back to the teachers. Another disposition is the commitment to…...

Children’s Development’s Impact on Teaching and Learning The aforementioned elements will surely help in the children’s development and this is in turn will have an impact on the educator’s teaching and learning. Explaining further, an Early Childhood Educator who is highly passionate about his or her work always takes into consideration how the child developed after being taught or handled by him or her (RAND Corporation, 2005). This greatly impacts the teaching of the Early Childhood Educator; this adds to his or her joy since it is his or her passion to teach. This joy, in turn, will teach and motivate the child to improve......

Grand Canyon University shares with us its Doctoral Dispositions, with clear description based on the idea that “An important distinction of a doctoral learner is the ability to take charge of one’s own learning. This involves working alongside professors, colleagues, and your dissertation committee members in taking an active role in the learning process” (Grand Canyon University). The self-assessment provides consideration of specific areas within the doctoral journey. The guiding principles exist as a foundation for both the organization’s collaborative work with students as well as students’ individual work. The Doctoral Dispositions Self-Assessment is an appropriate point of beginning for students eager to identify strengths and weaknesses more clearly. Who I Am As a Learner & Why I’m Here In a doctoral program, students have a responsibility, to themselves and to others. As a doctoral learner, I am separate and different from a “normal” learner. My requirements and expectations are greater. Therefore, the elevation of my academic nature places upon me a duty to establish and maintain an active engagement with faculty and classmates.......

...ADULT LITERACY EDUCATION IN NIGERIA AND THE USE OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION 1. The need for adult literacy education in Nigeria cannot be over-emphasized. In the context of global economy and competitive markets, adult literacy is a key factor contributing to economic development. In all countries of the world, adults constitute a larger proportion of the work force. Therefore, human resource development through adult literacy education has become a key component within the overall strategy for economic restructuring both in the developed and developing countries. The future of global economy and democratic polity in the twenty-first century is likely to depend on skilled, educated, and enlightened adult citizens. It was the World Conference on Education for All, held in Jomtien, (Thailand) in 1990 that highlighted the critical importance of addressing the learning needs of adults. In the context of globalization, basic learning skills and competencies are necessary not only for children, but also for adults, who are valuable human resources of every society. The new technological developments in information and Communication technologies (ICTs), such as satellite radio and television broadcasting, long distance telephony, computers and telecommunications have dramatically expanded our options for engaging in learning and teaching at the individual, community and societal levels. The hallmark of ICTs is their distributive power and...

...Education Introduction: Education encompasses teaching and learning specific skills, and also something less tangible but more profound: the imparting of knowledge, positive judgment and well-developed wisdom. Education has as one of its fundamental aspects the imparting of culture from generation to generation (see socialization). Education means 'to draw out', facilitating realisation of self-potential and latent talents of an individual. It is an application of pedagogy, a body of theoretical and applied research relating to teaching and learning and draws on many disciplines such as psychology, philosophy, computer science, linguistics, neuroscience, sociology and anthropology. The education of an individual human begins at birth and continues throughout life. (Some believe that education begins even before birth, as evidenced by some parents' playing music or reading to the baby in the womb in the hope it will influence the child's development.) For some, the struggles and triumphs of daily life provide far more instruction than does formal schooling (thus Mark Twain's admonition to "never let school interfere with your education"). Family members may have a profound educational effect — often more profound than they realize — though family teaching may function very informally. Etymology: The word "education" derives from the Latin educare, meaning "to nourish" or "to raise". Education systems: Schooling occurs when society or a group or an individual sets up a......

...people believe that education is not important, but they are wrong. In my opinion, it is an indispensable part of a personal, social, and professional life of a human being. part of life both personally and socially. It gives us knowledge about the world. Education can be in any form-knowledge from books, parents, teachers, and friends; therefore, education is the form of learning in which skills, knowledge, and habits are transferred from one generation to the next. Senator Patty Murray said, “A good education means learning to read, write and most importantly learn how to learn so that you can be whatever you want to be when you grow up.” There are many reasons why education is important to me. First, thanks to the education I received in school, I learned to read and write. Reading opened the door to learning about math, history, science, literature, geography and much more. Writing allowed me to express myself and communicate with other people. In addition, education provided me with better work opportunities, economic stability, and a more stable life than my parents had because they do not have an education. Education not only prepares me as an individual in the professional field, but also lets me create my personality and become an independent and critical human being. Another reason education is important is because it teaches you to respect diversity, to be tolerant and supportive of others; as a result, I can live in harmony in our society. Education allowed me......

Education

... Education is the process of facilitating learning. Knowledge, skills, values, beliefs, and habits of a group of people are transferred to other people, through storytelling, discussion, teaching, training, or research. Education frequently takes place under the guidance of educators, but learners may also educate themselves in a process called autodidactic learning. Any experience that has a formative effect on the way one thinks, feels, or acts may be considered educational. Education is commonly and formally divided into stages such as preschool, primary school, secondary school and then college, university or apprenticeship. The methodology of teaching is called pedagogy. A right to education has been recognized by some governments. At the global level, Article 13 of the United Nations' 1966 International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights recognizes the right of everyone to an education. Although education is compulsory in most places up to a certain age, attendance at school often isn't, and a minority of parents choose home-schooling, sometimes with the assistance of modern electronic educational technology . Education can take place in formal or informal settings. Etymology Etymologically, the word "education" is derived from the Latin ēducātiō from ēdūcō which is related to the homonym ēdūcō from ē- and dūcō . History Education began in prehistory, as adults trained the young in the knowledge and skills deemed necessary in their society.......

...Achieving Our Potential The majority of individuals recognize that education allows us to analyze, understand and appreciate our environment while giving us the life skills to survive in this globalized world. According to Merriam’s Dictionary, the definition of education is “any act or experience that has a formative effect on the mind, character, or physical ability of an individual.” Although most people have similar ideas as to what education is to them, I learned that not everyone’s opinion is comparable. As a student changes over from middle school to high school, they are given more of a voice because they are able to choose classes, although it is only a select amount. Allowing high school students to select a class gives them the opportunity to explore and learn a different subject. Also, students begin to discover their hidden talents. Tied together, required core classes and the classes students may choose from, help expand their prospect. Also, classes join into each other and benefit one another, sparking student interests and understanding of the classes themselves. I wondered what a high school student’s outlook on education would be and senior, Esther Herrera, gave me her opinion. “I am 17 and I think education is extremely important. I will admit that I do not always find school the most fascinating way to spend my time, but it is necessary.” The students begin to define themselves by the subjects and areas they are most interested in and their desire to......

...“In many parts of the world today religious education is facing dramatic challenges.” (catholicireland.net, 2012). We live in a world where society is greatly affected by the ways and customs of different religions and cultures. The questioning of the relationship between religion and education in Ireland has been a sizeable debate recently. The increase in immigration etc. has resulted in new and diverse religions and cultures being introduced into Irish society. Naturally this means that change is imminent. When people first heard that I would be studying to become a religious education teacher their reactions were mostly what I had expected. The look on their face said it all for most people. I could tell they were thinking that religious education was not a real subject. That is was merely a subject where you could catch up on homework or sit back, relax and watch a movie. Of course my natural instinct was to defend the subject as I knew why I wanted to and was going to study to become a religious educator. However as I found myself trying to explain, it was challenging to try and find the words to define what the subject is and what it entails. It was difficult to do this without sounding like a “holy joe” as the expression goes. It made me realise that I needed to sit down and think in detail the meaning of religious education and also what I think the future of religious education in Ireland looks like? Will religious education still be a subject in Ireland in years......

...Education Education is so multifaceted that it is difficult for me to know where to begin discussing it, or how to prioritize the many factors. Relaying my own experience is easy: I had a standard classroom approach, supplemented by inordinate reading. In only the briefest and least memorable instances did I receive any individual tutoring. Education is commonly thought of as the job of schools. Adults cry "educate our children!" Everyone has opinions about the best way to do the job. It is of urgent importance, and all the numerous factors are much studied, debated, and new (or old) ideas continually tested or retested. Some people say "it's as simple as . . . " and then name their pet peeve or passion. My view is not of an education specialist, but of one who loves sharing what I learn, and owes much to educators. Since I don't have an educational theory neatly worked-out, nor an outline of my perceptions, my intent is to address each educational ingredient that comes to my mind. After I've said what I think about each topic, readers may have a fair comprehension of my philosophy. First comes sensitivity. If a person be insensitive, be it from numbing cold, exhaustion, drugs, genetic makeup, or upbringing, then the process of education is bogged down, and results come only after great efforts. Sensitivity in my integrated meaning is broad, covering literally the senses, so that deaf and blind people are less sensitive, as well as people whose senses work......
