Place: Adsetts Learning Centre
Purpose: in SHU, there are many catering machines which provide foods and drinks to students who work here. In this observation, the vending machines of Adsetts Learning Centre were chosen because the students who were studying in library would come and purchase here and I decided to finish this observation alone, so the places and machines should concentrate and the visitor flaw rate needs to be in an appropriate range. This observation mainly researches the differences between male and female students choose to buy goods when they are having rest. Observation strategy: I sit at the nearby table and count the numbers of students who bought something here by draw slashes.
The result showed that coffee is the most welcomed drink when SHU student studying in library and there is slight difference between male and female. Probably because of the high usage rate of coffee machine, during my observation, it broke down for several minutes, which might cause the inaccurate data. In terms of snacks, likely more female would like to buy snacks than male, however maybe because of this observation happened in dinner time, not many students bought snacks. It is interesting to mention that just few students bought soft drinks here, and the possible reason was the cold weather and high health concerns.
Details need to improve:
1. The period of time I observed was not very appropriate because there were not many students, and I could not find any female buy soft drinks. The special time period might influence students’ choices of purchasing in rest area. 2. The duration of observation was...

An observation can result in a very important learning lesson. The act of observing starts at a very young age and never stops. Maturation evolves from self-motivation and efforts to adapt to day-to-day experiences. Observation is how a toddler learns new things. They observe their mother and father doing “grown up” things and try to re-enact them. By doing this they learn new words, build their own personalities, as well as many other important traits. As people grow older the observation turns toward peers, teachers, and other people associated in their lives.
It was my job to observe and learn from a fifth grade inner city class. Growing up, I went to a Jewish day school. It was very strict and nothing like a regular elementary school. The curriculum was much stronger and better than that of a regular school system. My high school was the same deal. It was a magnet school and once again the education I received was much better than a regular public high school. The only reason I am referring to this is because I was beyond shocked when I walked into Martin Luther King Elementary.
My observations started when I stepped off the University of Hartford bus. The school was bigger than I had thought and very old. When I walked in everyone was polite and directed me to the correct room. When I entered the room, it was very chaotic. A couple kids were sitting down,...

1. What is observation?
According to The Glossary of Education Reform, a classroom observation is a formal or informal observation of teaching while it is taking place in a classroom or other learning environment. Typically conducted by fellow teachers, administrators, or instructional specialists, classroom observations are often used to provide teachers with constructive critical feedback aimed at improving their classroom management and instructional techniques. School administrators also regularly observe teachers as an extension of formal job-performance evaluations.
Classroom observations may be called learning walks, teacher observations, walkthroughs, and many other things, and they may be conducted for shorter or longer periods of time—from a few minutes to a full class period or school day. Educators may also use a wide variety of classroom-observation methods—some may be nationally utilized models developed by educational experts, while others may be homegrown processes created by the educators using them. In many cases, observation notes are recorded using common templates or guidelines that describe what observers should be looking for or what the observed teacher would like feedback on. Increasingly, educators are conducting and recording classroom...
...OBSERVATION, DESCRIPTION, AND IDENTIFICATION TECHNIQUE
LEARNING OBJECTIVES: Explain the meaning of observation, and describe the techniques used in observation and description. Explain the importance of accurately evaluating the data provided by witnesses. Describe the techniques that should be used for a lineup.
In security job observation means perception of details pertaining to persons, objects, plans, and events through the use of the five senses. An investigator makes descriptions to convey to others his or her own observations or the observations of witnesses as reported to the investigator. Identification by a witness or victim is the art of establishing the relationship of a person, place, object, or event to an incident or offense.
As observation techniques are accomplished through the use of the five senses, sight and hearing are relied upon most often. The senses of taste, smell, and touch may occasionally be used advantageously.
The investigator must be able to observe accurately to recognize infractions of the law, persons, and objects of interest to law enforcement and crime prevention programs. Keen observation is necessary to perceive investigative leads, to evaluate the validity of statements by witnesses, and to make accurate reports. The ability to observe accurately is developed through practice...
...Lesson Observation 1
Teacher’s name: Slusari Alexandra
Observer’s name: Cebotari Tatiana
Date: 10 of April
Number of students: 10
Class: VII “B”
The lesson I have observed was on the topic “Artisanship”. At the beginning of the lesson the teacher put a clear set of aims to the pupils. She had a lesson plan which helped her to organize the lesson better. She used a lot of additional material.
First of all at the beginning she involved pupils into the lesson by asking pupils about art. Pupils were active and answered all the questions. Then teacher presented the new grammar topic about the verbs “Make and Do”. Teacher presented the new grammar topic, then they practised it and at least they tested it by making up questions using make and do.
After grammar, the teacher presented the new vocabulary about “Artisanship at school” and then they had to speak on this topic. The teacher gave some questions and pupils answered it with no difficulty.
At this lesson the teacher presented a variety of activities and the pupils were very interested to make them. When the pupils made a mistake or they didn’t know a word the teacher helped them. She was very kind to them and didn’t shout at pupils, explain clearly the tasks. In general the lesson was great and all the aims was achieved, the pupils were active and they liked the lesson.

...day one has always stood out from other kids for me, and it was such an exciting time to be able to observe him at his house with his mother, Shannon, and father, Brandon. During the observation, Brandon, was watching television socializing with the other people in the room, while Shannon was primarily trying to interact with and entertain Asher. While observing Asher he still held my attention as far as not being like most boys his age. Asher like always was very quiet, laid back, and preferred playing with his toys instead of people interaction. Be it that he was this way, is what I thought made him unique, I believe he was the perfect little boy to be immersed in.
During my observation of Asher, he spent most of his time playing by himself and interacting with the dog within the household. Asher played for almost the entire two hours that I was concentrated on him, mainly talking to himself and only really interacting with the people around him if he needed something that he couldn't obtain on his own. I noticed that when Asher's mom would try and make conversation with him or take his attention off of one toy and put it to use somewhere else he was anything but interested and instead just fully ignored her and continued doing what he wanted.
Another thing that stood out during this observation was the lack of language that Asher presented with. He talked some but not as much as one would think a toddler his age would. I...
Sports are important social mediums in our country, but basketball is the only sport where you can go to almost any park and play with complete strangers. While other sports involve diverse equipment and numerous amounts of players, basketball is a quick and easy game that only takes a court and a ball. While using the participant observation method, one can easily see how pickup basketball becomes a common stage for social interaction. While my original perspective of the sport was that of a friendly natured game among neighbors with a competitive aspect, my notes and observations revealed how diverse individuals who meet on the court can sometimes become aggressive to the point of hostility.
As a gym member of 24 Hour Fitness, I regularly play basketball in their indoor gym. I chose the location in Hermosa Beach because of the diversity of players that attend there. Using the participant observation method, I was both observing and participating while taking notes (obviously not while playing, for that would be an incredible feat). In a time span of two hours, I ended up playing three games while observing six other games. The location I visited was crowded, while ten players were on the court (five against five), about twenty people were waiting on the sidelines throughout the night; however, this number changed as people grew either tired or impatient. On the sidelines was a...

...communication within the team context
Recording, entering, retrieving and organising data essential to care delivery
On arriving for my shift I was informed in handover that Mr. X, had been placed on constant observations the previous evening, due to his mental state being in a poor condition the clinical team felt this was in the best interests of Mr. X as he had been experiencing paranoid thoughts and ideas and was a potential risk to himself and others.
Within the Orchard Clinic there are 5 levels of service user observation, General Observation, Constant Observation, Special Observation and Seclusion.
General Observation requires the floor nurse to be aware of all service users’ whereabouts and will make physical checks at intervals of no longer than 30 minutes on patients with this requirement.
Constant Observation requires a nurse to be assigned the duty of observing a single service user for no more than an hour at a time, a rota is made up to cover the shift duration, staff have to be aware of the patients whereabouts at all times and no more than a minute should elapse without visual contact being made by the designated nurse.
Special Observation is the most intensive form of psychiatric nursing care, it requires one-to-one constant observation, this is restricted to service users who are acutely emotionally disturbed...
