...Online education vs. traditional education a compare and contrast
Traditional education used to be the primary means of furthering ones education. However, in recent years online education has become more popular and is currently the preferred means of education. When concerning the convenience of the education, and resources online education has surpassed its opponent. Did you know that According to the U.S. Department of Education, National Center for Education Statistics Enrollment in degree-granting institutions between 2000 and 2010, increased by 37 percent, from 15.3 million to 21 million? (Source U.S. Department of Education, National Center for Education Statistics. (2011).The Condition of Education 2011(NCES 2011 -033), Table A-43-1). During the same period, online education courses accounted for an estimated 12.2 million enrollments. These numbers are hard to ignore, and it is safe to say that while some people feel traditional education is better for their educational needs; online education is quickly becoming the preference for Americans returning to school, but why? I want to compare the two and let you choose for yourself.
From the outside, looking in we can see that both online and traditional education hold their...
...s is the seemingly unique effect of media on the education environment and society. Although research clearly demonstrates that well-designed, age-appropriate, educational media can be beneficial to children of preschool age, studies on infants and toddlers suggest that these young children may better understand and learn from real-life experiences than they do from video and also how can be crucial for adolescents before heading to their higher education. With respect to children over two, the authors emphasize the importance of content in mediating the effect of television on cognitive skills and academic achievement.
How did we get here?
Introduction of media on education
In 1982, the personal computer revolution was signaled by Time magazine’s naming “the computer” as its “man of the year”, shortly after IBM introduced its first mass marketed personal computer. Two years later Apple introduced the popular Macintosh model, which won many educational adherents. These events made a huge change in our society by introducing us to the new age or world called “technology”.
The Internet has made many things possible that would have been difficult to imagine just a few decades ago. People are able to find information on almost any subject in a few seconds, and more people are able to educate themselves as a result. Many people have also found more opportunities for education through developments in...
...The world in which we live is changing rapidly and the field of education is experiencing these changes in particular as it applies to Media Services. The old days of an educational institution having an isolated audio-visual department are long gone! The growth in use of multimedia within the education sector has accelerated in recent years, and looks set for continued expansion in the future.
Teachers primarily require access to learning resources, which can support concept development by learners in a variety of ways to meet individual learning needs. The development of multimedia technologies for learning offers new ways in which learning can take place in schools and the home. Enabling teachers to have access to multimedia learning resources, which support constructive concept development, allows the teacher to focus more on being a facilitator of learning while working with individual students. Extending the use of multimedia learning resources to the home represents an educational opportunity with the potential to improve student learning.
The elements used in multimedia have all existed before. Multimedia simply combines these elements into a powerful new tool, especially in the hands of teachers and students. Interactive multimedia weaves five basic types of media into the learning environment: text, video, sound, graphics and animation. Since the mode of learning is interactive and not linear, a student or teacher can choose what to...
Nursing education is a professional education which is systematically planned through disciplines and aims the harmonious development of physical, social and intellectual abilities of student in order to render holistic nursing care to people of all ages, health and illness (Sankaranarayanan and Sindhu, 2012). Singapore Nursing Board standards of practice (2011) stated that a registered nurse has the responsibility to educate or mentor nursing students to maintain and develop the knowledge, skills and professional practice of nurses in clinical setting.
The author is a 2 years experienced registered nurse working in general hospital. She was assigned to mentor a second year nursing student from Polytechnics for clinical attachment to explore clinical knowledge and practices. The administration of subcutaneous insulin injection was chosen to teach the student because it is a common procedure in clinical area and one of the learning objectives of her attachment.
The purpose of this paper is to develop nursing education and ensure students to function effectively in clinical area by engaging theories and clinical practice. Standards of Nursing and Midwifery Council (2008) also supports that mentors are responsible for co-coordinating student’s experiences and clinical concepts to apply new knowledge, skills and competencies in practice.

...ICT had had a major impact on education in today’s society. This has had an impact on how people study and how it may have improved the way people learn through ICT. It is generally said that ICT can empower learners and teachers, promote change and also increase individual skills through ICT. It will help transforming teaching and learning processes from being highly teacher-dominated to student-centered, and this transformation will result in increased learning gains for students, creating and allowing learners to develop their creativity, informational reasoning skills, communication skills, and mainly ICT skills such as using word processing, educational software’s that help to develop the individual’s skills through ICT. This can be linked to the future as there will be more job opportunities if people have the necessary skills for ICT and this means people will be more successful. Most jobs today require some use of ICT skills as almost every task is done on the computer through ICT and this can be very important on improving people’s learning making it very easy for individual as well as learning key information in a different way which may help to learn things very quickly.
It has been said that student performance has improved when it comes to test taking when using ICT, especially in multiple choice...

The paper discusses the implementation of technology in the classroom addresses the areas in which educators need to focus. It also emphasizes the necessity for technology integration in the classroom and curriculum.
The use of Technology in Education
The use of technology in education has brought about great changes in the way we teach and learn. In this digital age it is imperative that technology is embedded into all aspect of learning and teaching. Educators face many challenges when it comes to integrating technology into the classroom due to lack of training, and the availability of technological equipment. Research has shown that to cater to our students who are digital natives, and to remain globally competitive we need to ensure that classrooms spring forward into the 21st century.
According to Pelham, Crabtree, & Nyiri, “Education researchers, government officials, and the international development community often have different ideas about the best approach to improving educational attainment across the globe” (2009, p. 74). The same can be said for educators and district leaders; there are a variety of opinions on how important the use of technology is within the classroom, and the necessity of it in preparing students to excel in today’s...
