...SPECIAL NEEDS EDUCATION ASSIGNMENT 1
OTIENO DALMAS BU/UG/2012/232
Outline the challenges of special needs education in Uganda.
Give the possible solutions to each of the challenges
Efforts involved in implementation of Special needs education in Uganda today have got
challenges that are facing them. These challenges are
Handling the problems of an inclusive classroom. The concept of having classrooms that
contain both special needs students and students who are developing typically is becoming a
popular one. This type of education poses new challenges for a special education teacher. For
example, many students who have no disabilities are unaccustomed to dealing with those who
do. Teachers in these classes are charged with eliminating cruelty and insensitivity from among
their students and ensuring that those with special needs are treated with respect.
Professional Isolation. The nature of a special education teacher’s work is very different from
that of traditional teachers; the result of this is that standard classroom teachers may not view
them as colleagues. There may be a professional stigma attached to the work of teaching “slow”
students. Special education teachers often work with smaller groups and may focus on skills
rather than content, thereby...
I think technicaleducation is more of a valuable asset to society than liberal arts educational fields. Technical schools offer job specific coursework which are usually jobs that are high in demand. When it comes to the cost of your tuition, its way less expensive than a four year college
. Technical schools cost less than most colleges. It takes less time to complete because you don’t have to take two years of history and English courses for a simple career like becoming a massage therapist. You spend more time really learning things about the field, while others in traditional colleges are in a classroom. According to Mech Institute 23.6% students take 7yrs to obtain a bachelor’s degree, and cost double the tuition to go to get a liberal education than a technicaleducation.
You learn in a more hands on way. You learn from a person who is a master in the field you’re learning about. Technical colleges offer apprenticeships and when done with training you will be able to do the tasks needed to be done. You can go right to work without any additional training. For employers this is huge because a lot of companies spend a lot of money training employees that sometimes just quit. It costs employers a lot of money to train people just for them to quit over time.
Traditional colleges are not for everyone....
...CHALLENGES FOR ADULT STUDENTS IN FOSTERING EDUCATION
Higher education continues to change, particularly in terms of the student body. In the past, colleges and universities were often populated by recent high school graduates who were training for their first jobs. Today, the higher education institution includes people in just about every phase of life. No longer are people expected to stay in the same vocational field, and schools are increasingly gearing their programs and services to older learners who are interested in new fields, career changes, and simply learning about unique subjects. Of course, it can be a bumpy road for some adults, particularly if they have not been in school for quite some time. While some of these adults may be confident when it comes to professional skills, it can be an intimidating experience to step onto a college campus. With that in mind, here are a few of the major challenges that are sometimes experienced by adult learners.
The first challenged has something to do with time and energy, and how it is prioritized. The job or the family takes too much energy and the person does not intend to use the free time left on learning activities. We call this category "lack of time and/or energy". At first sight, this factor falls well into Cross (1981) and Darkenwald & Merriam (1982) situational barriers, that is barriers related to the individuals situation such as job and...

...TechnicalEducation Scenario in India -Impact,
Success Till Now and Challenges
Quite afresh, I engaged in a healthy conversation with my teacher who was very cynical about the condition of technicaleducation in India. She asked me a very simple question- why is a majority of the modern research activity taking place in the US itself and not in countries with much more population like India? I had an expeditious reply to this question in my mind and I quickly said that it's because of the lower literacy rate here. She then did some statistical data analysis for me and continued that in spite of that, India boasts of a larger populace of educated men and women than America and added that this still doesn't concern the research and development comparison between both the countries. I, again, was impetuous in my remark that there are fewer incentives and very less scope in India as compared to that present in the US. I don't know if I was marginally right or not, but she again looked up Wikipedia and told that we had an immeasurable number of technical universities and colleges as compared to the "developed" countries and hence, obviously, humongous workforce to implement proper education. I felt lost with the facts that I was facing. Everything seems so nicely set up and the cogwheels seem to be working quite perfectly, but still the result that comes out of this...
...seize this opportunity to speak a couple of words on the need to expand TechnicalEducation in the country. In Sri Lanka, technicaleducation began in the 1890s with the establishment of the Colombo Technical College, which, as Government Department, functioned to cater to certain requirements of such Government Departments as Public Works, Railways and Irrigation. TechnicalEducation, because of this limited focus, did not expand in the colonial period; it was after independence an attempt was made to start engineering courses. With the establishment of the University of Ceylon, an Engineering Degree course was started. In the sixties, a network of Technical Colleges came into existence but they taught only trade and craft courses. What the country needed was an Institute which could career to the middle level needs in the field of technical knowledge. Such middle level technical know-how was necessary for the country to undertake development; industry was expanding and new development corporations came into being, and such institutions, in addition to engineers, wanted middle level technical expertise.
Since there was no organization to produce such men, the Government of the day wanted us to examine the possibility of setting up a Technological Institute which is capable of producing middle level...
...The history of technicaleducation in this country has been a century old. It all began in 1904 when a Technical School began its operation on Weld Road (now Jalan Raja Chulan) to teach Technical Assistants for the Federated Malay States Departments of Railways, Survey and Public Works. The school was officially known as Treacher Technical School, named after Sir William Treacher, the Resident General during that time. Students followed classed on part-time basis; they worked and trained specifically according to the technical needs of their employment.
Department In 1941, the Advisory Committee of Technical Schools and the Education recommended that the Technical School be elevated to a college status and proposed that a new Technical College be constructed. The new college was to be built on a 47-acre piece of Government land in Gurney Road (now Jalan Semarak), Kuala Lumpur. Plans for the construction of the college, however, were put on hold when World War II erupted in Peninsular Malaysia.
During the Japanese occupation of Malaya, the college was known as ‘Shihan Gakko’ then at its High Street (now Jalan Bandar) premises. It was headed by Mr. Arimoto and assisted by Mr. N.A.K Nair who later became its principal. After the liberation, the College was reopened on September 16, 1946 and the plan to build a completely new...
...GlobalTechnical Support Outsourcing Market 2014-2018
Technical support refers to a wide range of services offered by enterprises to assist technology product users. This support is usually delivered via email, telephone, a website or a tool where users can log a call/incident as well as receive on-site technical support. Large organizations usually have their own internal technical support teams while small and medium-sized organizations more often outsource technical support services to specialized firms referred to as managed service providers. With the rise in the complexity of IT infrastructure, and the pricing models of various organizations, technical support for products and services has become a crucial differentiating factor in terms of reducing the cost of maintaining the legacy systems.
