INTRODUCTION In this day and age computers are used in every field including communication, business, broadcasting, education, etc. Lifestyles have drastically changed in the last few decades thanks to the emergence of the multimedia computer and the internet which have put language learners today in the integrative CALL phase. Today an abundance of software applications allow language learners of any language to enhance their four fundamental skills of language: speaking, writing, reading, and listening, at the same time developing their research and critical thinking abilities. These software applications can vary from CALL-specific software applications to generic ones. The point here is that there is an infinite number of ways to utilize different softwares in language learning. All it takes is creativity and determination.
Warschauer mentioned that “The effectiveness of CALL cannot reside in the medium itself but only in how it is put to use.” What teachers and learners of language today must understand is that CALL does not necessarily involve CALL-specific softwares. There are four different types of CALL programs which are CALL-specific software, generic software, web-based learning programs, and computer-mediated communication (CMC) programs. All these software applications can be used creatively for LL purposes and cater to the different needs and learning styles of the digital native students of today. Prenski argues that “Today’s students think and process information fundamentally different from their predecessors.”Because of this language teachers today have to adjust themselves to fulfil the demands and…...

...Introduction The Problem with society is that we cannot accept that we are all different. Many people have seen others as different from themselves but feel that they are in the majority of people that are alike. This can be called social discrimination. Stereotypes are prevalent in society. Stereotypes are inevitable and unpreventable. As we accept that we are always under scrutiny in others eyes we begin to examine ourselves. The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of stereotyping and discover how they lead to greater social identity. Once they learn their identity they find themselves stereotyping themselves and others. A stereotype is a preconceived, oversimplified, exaggerated, and often demeaning assumption of the characteristics that an individual has due to his or her membership in a specific group. We develop stereotypes when we are unable or unwilling to obtain all of the information we would need to make fair judgments about people or situations. In the absence of the "total picture," stereotypes in many cases allow us to "fill in the blanks." Our society often creates and initiate stereotypes, but these stereotypes often lead to unfair discrimination and persecution when the stereotype is not liked. When people are stereotyped they are judged and treated unfairly. Often when stereotyping happens negative discrimination tends to follow. This may often include isolation and lack of respect given to the stereotyped subject. ......

Different Ways of Learning

...During this past week this author has learned that a learning need is a need to change a behavior and as nurses we have been at the fore front as the educators for our patients and their families for the primary source of health education. People continually acquire knowledge and the ability to learn new skills and an important aspect of this is the individual’s agreement to learn. Many factors influence the learning process like the client’s educational needs, health beliefs and readiness, environment, health status and cultural and financial awareness to name a few. People are not the same and do not do things the same, therefore our learning styles, methods and strategies are different which brings this author to my learning style. According to the VARK Questionnaire: “ How Do I Learn Best?” it has been determined that this author’s learning preference is multimodal with read/write being the strongest learning preference with a score of twelve, followed by a score of eight for aural and kinesthetic and the weakest preference visual with a score of seven, however, for this author to understand what is being taught to me the educational content has to be laid out to enhance my learning experience through a visual learning style, it is essential for me to comprehend. It has to be interesting, not too long; if too long the author becomes bold and unmotivated. Pictures, maps, diagrams, and directions are a must. My preferred learning style is visual. Also the author is......

Different Learning Styles

...Different Learning styles commonly Used by the PNTC marine Transportation students A thesis presented to the Under graduate studies PNTC Colleges In partial fulfillment Of the requirement for The research & thesis writing By: J’Bryan G. Santiago Ronkiel R. Serrano Dennis L. Garan Rod Carlo D. Agpalo Reggie Eridio Chapter I A. Introduction According to Kolb’s (1984) many people recognize that each person prefers different learning styles and techniques. Learning styles group common ways that people learn. Everyone has a mix of learning styles. Some people may find that they have a dominant style of learning, with far less use of the other styles. Others may find that they use different styles in different circumstances. There is no right mix. Nor are your styles fixed. You can develop ability in less dominant styles, as well as further develop styles that you already use well. Many people recognize that each person prefers different learning styles and techniques.

Different Learning Styles

...talking about the different learning styles and how people may take information Kinaesthetic learning A Kinaesthetic learner is someone who remembers/Learns things physically. This is very effective for these types of learners as they would be doing the physical aspects of their work such as in ict creating motherboards or putting an computer together in order for them to put or create computers they need to have built or repaired computers previously forcing them to remember steps allowing them to become a kinaesthetic learner. Visual Learning A Visual Learner is someone who remembers information either by reading something or looking at pictures anything visual allows them to learn and pick up information easier than any other type of learning style. This type of learning will be very effective as you are shown pictures that will help you to understand the text that is given and will make it a lot easier to remember the information given to you . Auditory Learning An Auditory Learner has very similar skills to those who learn visually but instead of them visually retaining information they instead listen to remember information instead. If they are in class listening to the employer or teacher they can understand well and learn very effectively and also recall things. These types of learners can listen to the Radio, conferences or CD,s and be able to retain the information effectively. The way in which I learn is partially by Visually Learning because I am......

Self-Driving Mobile Platform

...Robotics 104-1 Final project: A self-driving mobile platform Lou, Seddik, Benjamin Derville and Chun-Kan Gary Chow Abstract— In this paper, we present our work on building an autonomous car. We first describe our choosen approach and the reason behind this choice, we then describe what we manage to implement and then we finish by reviewing our work done. I. INTRODUCTION Autonomous driving is maybe the most popular current project in machine learning, and especially deep learning. Billions of dollars are assigned to create self-driving car. Google lead the movement with their Google Car created from their lab Google X, followed by Tesla who manage to quickly catch up with their big fleet of cars driving on the roads at each instant. Uber just created a research center for this work, GM partner with Lyft, George Hotz, an americain car made his own home-made simple self-driving car and even Nvidea created a demo. In this sense, this work is not really original or innovative. We however thought this work was not yet popularized to students projects. This works is also interesting because it’s not ’achieved’ even by the current state-of-the-art, there are still lots of works to be done. II. T HEORY will be very hard to distinguish between them and not useful for a long-term solution. Additionally we would encounter a major problem when defining the color and shape of a car. So instead we design an machine-learning algorithm which uses a similar......

...Platform: Focusing on Self Care My name is Diamond Carter. I am currently a sophomore at Chicago State University. My major is undeclared but I would love to major in Pre- physical therapy because I am very passionate about helping others. Currently I am employed with Chicago Public Schools as a Certified Teacher Assistant and I specialize in providing service to special need children. My hobbies include watching science videos and dancing. I am a member of Sweet Holy Spirit Church and in 2014 I was a contestant in the Miss Black and Gold Scholarship Pageant. Other accomplishments include becoming a proud member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. After graduation I plan to work as a sports therapist and help injured individuals recover from their injuries as well as educate them on how to take better care of the body. My platform as Miss Chicago State University is to promote self-care of the mind and body. What we put in our bodies and put out into the world is very important. I want to take a proactive stance on illnesses such as Diabetes, Obesity, Cancer, and Heart Failure that has significantly impacted our society. Moreover, I would like to inspire others to be mindful of the toxins we intake daily. Also, I would like to encourage not only women of color, but all women to exemplify themselves as women of distinction and class. In today’s society the image of a woman is not valued. Through social media women are taught to hate one another and to be insecure.......

Compare Different Unified Communication Platform

...Compare Different Unified Communication Platforms Stefanie Bailey IT/200 June 6, 2016 Mark Damron Compare Different Unified Communication Platforms My team compared the different Unified communication platforms. Softphone- is a software program that allows you to make calls over the internet using a computer. VoIP- voice over IP is voice information over the internet that sends the voice information in a digital form rather than the traditional telephone network. Half Duplex- is a computer circuit allowing the transmission of signals in both directions but not at the same time. Full Duplex is when both parties communicate as one. It allows data transmission to more than one device. PBX working on premises within an enterprise that (private branch exchange) is a private networking and switching system operates with traditional telephone lines One of the examples my team discussed of Softphone was Magic Jack because it is a phone service that is ran through internet and not actually wired through hardwire equipment. An example of VoIP would be the phone line being connected through your cable modem vs. the traditional way it use to be wired through your home. A great example of Half Duplex is a walkie talkie because you can talk to each person back and forth, however you have to take turns speaking no two people can talk at the same time. An example of Full Duplex would be a three way call because everyone is communicating at one time as......

Hcs135 Communication Platforms

...Unified Communication Platforms There are many different types of unified communication platforms businesses can choose from. The three we will be going over will be: Sharepoint, Webex, and Skype. These programs are designed for collaborative use and being able to connect and share information with one another. Most of these programs can be integrated with the Office 365 suites, where others are based off their own servers. Skype is a easy to use collaborative software which offers an array of different tools to get connected. One of Skype’s main features is its VOIP and video chatting capabilities. Skype for business is a great tool to have handy for those who want to organize conference calls from the comfort of their home or office. Being a VOIP program means we can make phone calls using Skype over the internet. Not only is Skype great for conference calls it can also be used to Instant message, video call, screen share, and transfer files. Having an arsenal of tools at the fingertips of a business can make collaborative work a cinch. Lastly, Skype for Business is able to be integrated in with Office 365. This makes appointment setting available to any contact found within Outlook. Scheduling has never been so easy. Next we will talk about Webex. Webex is a program of its own and similar to Skype. Webex offers VOIP and video messaging making conference calls easy to do. One thing that sets Webex apart from its competitors is the way it handles it’s collaborative......

Constitutionalist Platform

...Constitutionalist Platform The following principles should be considered planks in the platform of any candidate who calls himself or herself a "constitutionalist": 1. The rights recognized in the Bill of Rights are rights that precede the Constitution, apply to all persons everywhere and all times, and considered as restrictions on the actions of government officials or agents, apply to all officials or agents at all levels of government, federal, state, and local, and even to the treatment of any persons anywhere outside the territorial jurisdiction of the United States, except when otherwise authorized by a declaration of war or letters of marque and reprisal. 2. The right to keep and bear arms, like other rights in the Bill of Rights, is an individual right, at all levels of government, and covers all weapons or other tools or supplies that might be used for defense, riot control, personal protection, law enforcement, or emergency response. The only regulation permitted is to facilitate and discipline militia and enhance its effectiveness. 3. No right, including the right to keep and bear arms, may be disabled, that is, restricted partially or entirely, by any process other than a trial in which the subject shall have the right of a jury, and in which the burden of proof is on the petitioner that either the disablement is a punishment authorized by statute for a crime proved to have been committed by the subject, or that if the right of the defendant is not......
