EDUCATION FOR THE DIGINITY OF HUMAN LIFE
Education, if looked at beyond its conventional boundaries, forms the very essence of all our actions. What we do is what we know and have learned, either through instructions or through observation and assimilation. When we are not making an effort to learn, our mind is always processing new information or trying to analyze the similarities as well as the tiny nuances within the context which makes the topic stand out or seem different. If that is the case then the mind definitely holds the potential to learn more, however, it is us who stop ourselves from expanding the horizons of our knowledge with self-doubt or other social, emotional, or economic constraints.
While most feel that education is a necessity, they tend to use it as a tool for reaching a specific target or personal mark, after which there is no further need to seek greater education. Nonetheless, the importance of education in society is indispensable and cohering, which is why society and knowledge cannot be ever separated into two distinct entities. Let us find out more about the role of education in society and how it affects our lives.
Receiving a good education helps empower you, thus making you strong enough to look after yourself in any given situation. It keeps you aware of your given surrounding as well as the rules and regulations of the society you're living in. It's only through knowledge that you can be able to question authority for its negligence or discrepancies. It is only then that you can avail your rights as a citizen and seek improvement in the structural functioning of governance and economy. It's only when a citizen is aware about the policies of its government can he be able to support or protest the change. As a whole, people can bring about development only when they know where improvement is necessary for the greater good of mankind. Education helps you understand yourself better, it helps you realize your potential and qualities as a human being. It helps you to tap into latent talent, so that you may be able to sharpen your skills.
Another importance of education is that it helps you gain sufficient academic qualification so that you are able to get suitable employment at a later stage. A decent employment would be combined with hard-earned remuneration or salary through which you can look after your personal expenses. While you earn for yourself, you gradually begin to realize the true worth of money and how hard it is to earn it. You realize the significance of saving for a rainy day and for unforeseeable contingencies.
There also comes a phase when the amount you are earning presently will seem inadequate because your aspirations and expectations from yourself would have grown considerably. After this, you will want to change jobs so as to have a higher profile. However, here is when you need to be prepared. A promotion of this figure can occur in two given situations, which are, that either you have the necessary higher academic qualification or a college degree which allows you a safe passage, or that you have amassed enough practical experience which allows you to be a suitable candidate for the employment you seek.
This is why college education is very important after high school and must not be taken for granted. When faced with the option of choosing between a highly qualified candidate and a not so educated candidate, the employers will most probably go in for the qualified person. The reason being that, a qualified candidate will not require much investment of the employer's time and money. The organization need not teach him or her the tricks of the trade, or the various ways of functioning and performing the tasks of the workplace. On the contrary, a novice / amateur applicant would need to be taught everything from scratch, which many employer's are usually not willing to do. The same applies for people who seek higher education and get advanced diplomas...
...Education is a very important thing for human’s life. People can have a good position in a company by completing high level of education. The importance of education toward human’s life has forced another need to complete by educational institution, including university. Regarding this issue, some people believe that university should place itself as a media for the students to gain knowledge, no matter it will be useful for the employer of the students. Some other people believe that university should be able to answer today’s need in getting a high quality of students who is able to apply their knowledge and skill in the workplace.
For some idealistic people, education should be a thing which is enjoyed by students. Students may not be forced as a creature who is obsessed in getting exact-oriented knowledge. They believe that this kind of orientation will block them in getting wider scope of knowledge. Therefore, university should not have such kind of limitation as well in seeing it. University should be the right place for students to enjoy learning process, without thinking about whether it will be useful for them in their workplace or not.
On the other hand, some other people think that focus in studying the needed knowledge and skills to apply in the workplace is essential to be prepared by university. In fact, there are many companies which send their worker to take higher level...
...religious teaching about what it means to be a human. (30 marks)
- Human has a embodied spirit who thinks, act, speaks and desires. Religious teachings say that humans are created in the image of god. They are different from animals because humans have the ability to love, be moral and have free will. Humanslife is a gift from god. We must value life. God created us as intelligent beings with the ability to control our actions, urges and emotions.
Christian teaches that free will is given by God. By free will, we shape our own lives. Bible says Humans are creation of God. God desired humans to exist. God gave us the ability to reason, speak and to live a moral life. Humans are mixture of earth and divine breath. Bible teaches that we are the incarnation of the divine and part of us is drawn from the earth. Everything created by god is perfect and it was intended. Of all the creatures in God's creation, Humans are the only ones who enter into a dialouge with God which is by prayer. Most christians believe that humans are distinct from the animal word, and that the most important differences between animals and humans have is soul – a divine spark that sets them apart from other living things. This asserts that Christians do not treat animals as their equals, as only...
...The Value of Life
The value of humanlife is still a mystery and we as a society is still trying to figure it out. During early times, life was not valued at all; people were being turned into slaves and treated like nothing. In today’s world many would base the value of life by our achievements, one’s past, or the salary one receives. This shouldn’t be the way we value one’s life. We as a society cannot assign a value on ones life.
In today’s society, it can be said that we have taken the value of life to another level. The government gives money to families who have lost a loved one, but the amount of money given has been decided in various ways. The amount of money given to each family is based on who they were, how they died, and on their personal backgrounds. Wouldn’t you think it would only be right to give each family the same amount of money and help regardless of differences? It would make sense because the Declaration of Independence specifically states, “all men are created equal’. With that said, shouldn’t we have equal life values?
In Amanda Ripley’s article, “What is a Life Worth” she asks the question, “Is a poor man’s life worth less than a rich man’s?” (Ripley, 13). There is no definitive answer to this question but our society has placed a dollar amount on every...
...Education For LifeThe basic purpose of a liberal arts education is to liberate the human being to exercise his or her potential to the fullest. Liberal arts plays an important role in developing individuals and the world. When students attend liberal art colleges, they will understand the essence of humanity and will learn to shape and develop personal values.
For a person to develop, he needs to understand the essence of humanity. When you attend college, your view on the meaning of life changes. You live for your minds and spirits and not just for the security of material wealth (Urbanek). You start to do things related to your work as this is your interest. This will make you care less about material wealth and you will focus more on the benefit of the world than the benefit of yourself. Liberal arts means arts of freedom. People learn about things that interest them. This makes the experience of learning better. Students will recognize the value of material things for what they are (Urbanek). They will start challenging tasks of design where they would learn how to translate ideas into actions. They will get to know the depth, flexibility and openness of their thinking and will also be able to recognize the importance of their thinking. Taking these ideas into consideration, I can say that liberal arts teaches people global responsibility, social awareness and self development, which is the essence of humanity....

Science 1 in the Early Years
Assessment: Item 1- Views of teaching and promoting science of young learners
The pedagogy of play can be hard to understand and part of the reason for this is it’s so difficult to explain how children learn by play because play isn’t simply; it is complex. Each child begins their early childhood education with a set of skills and prior knowledge that is influenced by their family, culture and past experiences (Fellows &Oakley, 2010). The past knowledge should become the foundation for developing an understanding of scientific concepts (Duschl, Schweingruber & Shouse, 2007). Children are naturally inquisitive, creative and aware of the world around them (Campbell & Jobling, 2012). Play is an important development tool and an effective way to teach children scientific concepts while using their prior knowledge (Preston, Mules, Baker & Frost, 2007). Learning science through play shows children that science is useful and enjoyable and is a significant aspect of the real world (Bulunuz, 2013). This essay will review teaching science through play, theorists who support play and the way in which the Australian curriculum and EYLF support play pedagogy.
Science and Play
Play pedagogy is a context for learning through which children organise and make sense of their social worlds, as they engage actively with people, objects and representations. Research shows...
...Oogenesis is the production of the female gametes otherwise known as the Ova or Egg. This process begins in the ovaries before birth.
Oogonia are made by mitotic division of the primordial germ cell.
As a result of mitosis from the germinal epithelium the oogonia becomes surrounded by follicle cells forming a structure known as the primary follicle. Theses primary follicles then migrate to the centre of the ovary.
When the oogonia begin the first meiotic division they are called Primary Oocytes which are diploid. Primary oocytes stay in meiosis phase 1 until the female reaches puberty. They grow in size but don’t fully divide.
At birth there are around 400,000 primary follicles in the human female ovaries.
At puberty and menopause
At puberty meiosis phase 1 is complete. The release of hormones cause the oocyte inside the follicle to divided by meiosis just before ovulation.
A secondary oocyte is formed along with a small cell called a polar body. The polar body will later degenerate and be absorbed back into the body.
The follicle containing the secondary oocyte continues to mature until a surge in the hormones FSH and LH initiates ovulation. This releases the secondary oocyte in a process known as meiosis phase 2 which cannot be completed until fertilisation occurs.
During and After Sexual Intercourse
The secondary oocyte enters the oviduct where fertilisation can take place. Meiosis phase 2 is...
... Education in its general sense is a form of learning in which the knowledge, skills, and habits of a group of people are transferred from one generation to the next through teaching, training, or research. Education frequently takes place under the guidance of others, but may also be autodidactic. Any experience that has a formative effect on the way one thinks, feels, or acts may be considered educational.
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.
Etymologically, the word "education" is derived from the Latin ēducātiō from ēdūcō which is related to the homonym ēdūcō from ē- and ''dūcō .
Type of educationEducation can take place in formal or informal educational settings.
Systems of schooling involve institutionalized teaching and learning in relation to a curriculum, which itself is established according to a predetermined purpose of the schools in the system. Schools systems are sometimes also based on religions, giving them different curricula.
In formal education, a curriculum is the set of courses and their content offered at a school or university. As an idea, curriculum stems from the Latin word for race course, referring to the course of deeds and...
