  • Online Education: Balancing School With Other Life Responsibilities

    3 pages in length. Everything takes priority at one time or another; the most important thing to remember is that only one thing can take priority at a time.

The greatest conflict people find when they attempt an online degree is the perceived notion of "your time is your own" from employers, friends and family alike. While the fundamental attraction of online education is the ability to achieve this goal at home, that is the only difference between it and a brick-and-mortar schedule. That online learning removes the logistic component does not mean it lacks structure of time and commitment, a realization that spawns frustration when trying to balance with work and/or family demands.

  • Human Behavior: Conditioned Responses

    9 pages in length. The prevalence of conditioned response within the fundamental basis of human behavior illustrates how the concept of reward/punishment is integral to the way in which people act. To understand the connection between stimulus and learned behavior is to realize the strong motivational factor that draws an association between the two; that behaviorists like Pavlov and Skinner have clearly demonstrated the extent to which behavior in all species is prompted by reward/punishment outcome speaks to the straightforwardness of rescripting undesirable behaviors into desirable ones. The inherent value of such knowledge lends itself to addressing issues in criminality, education and a whole host of other areas where conduct plays an important role in a civilized society. Moreover, understanding the cues of behavior and how they are manipulated provides psychologists with the opportunity to restructure destructive thought processes. In short, Pavlov and Skinner set the precedent for proving how the components of human behavior are both simple and finite. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

Discrimination is a multifaceted component of contemporary society that has placed a tremendous black mark upon the character of a nation allegedly inhabited by civilized beings.

  • How Do You Learn Best

    Learning styles have been researched and studied for decades. Do you know what your own learning style is? If you are a teacher, you will tend to instruct your class based on your own learning style.

This essay discusses several issues related to learning styles beginning with the writer's own style and how most of K-12 education was presented in a different style. Other topics include the importance of knowing your students' learning styles, how to assess them, how to overcome obstacles, and examples for incorporating three styles in a lesson. There are two sources listed in the bibliography of this four page paper.

  • Achievement in Web-Based Courses

    A 6 page research paper that offers a critique of a study on web-based learning. Bell (2007) conducted a study that investigated the effects of self-regulated learning (SRL) and epistemological beliefs (EB) on the achievement of individual learners involved in courses that included web-based learning environments. The researcher points out that while online learning has been praised as creating greater access to higher education, it is questionable as to whether or not all students in their late adolescence/early adult years can benefit from this experience, as the online learning environment requires a high degree of self-regulation, as well as “higher levels of intellectual development” (Bell, 2007, p. 523). This critique of this study focuses on the methodology that was employed. Bibliography lists 2 sources.
