Questions may be raised about assistance from parents or paid coaches if students submit an elegant autobiographical statement with their applications but score poorly on the proctored SAT essay, they said. Unknown to many students, colleges not only receive scores but also can examine the actual
This article also claims that technology is a huge distraction in our lives in the sense that instead of traditional reading we now tend to skim read and even skip right to another article without ever returning to the original one. Traditional media has to live up to the expectation their audiences have of everything being a "shortcut". We are becoming too use to being able to access information faster and more conveniently. According to this article, technology is becoming more important than the mind of the human being. Google is used as an example of how we have begun a new form or way of reading and thinking as we hyperlink or way through the web instead of going to a library to read periodicals.
Rachel Veroneau Leasa Day English 101 February 10, 2013 Why Would You Cheat? People in college can have a hard time with some of their classes. They can think that it would be easy to just get all of the answers to a test, or to buy the paper that is needed. But why would someone cheat? Those kinds of ideas can lead them to serious consequences.
The online open source encyclopedia Wikipedia has become a serious controversial issue in the academic world. Educators all over the world are perplexed at the idea that students should be able to use Wikipedia as a credible source. Two college professors wrote two essays with completely different view points on the issue. On the side against using Wikipedia as a scholarly source is Professor Neil L. Waters with his article “Why You Can’t Cite Wikipedia in My Class.” Then on the opposing side of the argument is Professor Mark A. Wilson with his article “Professors Should Embrace Wikipedia”. Both Waters and Wilson made some convincing points but Waters came out on top with better more convincing factual information to persuade the readers the downfalls
She provides various arguments regarding her theory and growing concern of whether students benefit from online educational platforms. This essay addresses the many deficits of online learning, particularly concerning the subject of writing. Kiefer also discusses the fact that, although online learning is a now a popular trend due the advancement of technology, it is a flawed system due to a writing teacher trying to foster student-student interaction with no resources other than electronic discourse (Kiefer, 2007). She reveals concerns from the standpoint of classroom support software, student's time constraints and "Market" Models of Education. Additionally, there is an incredible level of detachment caused by the impersonal nature of these online courses among students and student as well as teacher and student.
Burak recognized her research had many limitations as the sample was not randomly selected, the data was self-reported, and the design was correctional. Due to these research limitations, her research findings may not be adequate to apply to a university student population in general. Nevertheless, her research provided a good foundation and solid starting point for further research on the effects of multitasking in university classrooms. CRITIQUE Burak (2012) states that university students are constantly engaged in multitasking and that this really distracts them from learning. Students who do
plagerism has begun to affect professors at high levels diverting them from the work of developing students writing and critical thinking abilities. students dont seem to realize how professors can tell whether the paper is plagerized or not.well, professors know what a student is capable of, how they write, the language they use and etc. professors can get previous essays from the student and combine them and realize that the quality and style are markedly different from what they have seen from the student before. therefore, even writing one or two sentences off the internet can be easily found from the website you've got it from which means that students dont have a way out of it. plagerism is more common then
To this extent, the benefits of Wikipedia for university students are limited. The first part of this essay will focus on the fact that Wikipedia can be effective for students in today’s ever-changing online environment. Then it will move on to the fact that students are occasionally blind in accepting information which is produced by unknown background authors, and thus potentially need to take more notice of the drawbacks of Wikipedia (Chandler and Gregory, 2010a:2). Lastly, the conclusion will assert that traditional academic resources might be time-consuming but more valuable and be able to withstand scrutiny compared with Wikipedia. First of all, an online encyclopaedia provides clear benefits, such as ease of access compared with traditional sources, and a very high update speed, with regards to new and changing information.
William Skidmore EDU 225 April 21, 2013 Kathleen Sherbon The Integrating of instructional technology into the classroom. While the march of technology steams on it I not as easy as plugging in a computer to improve the academic ability of students, there is a lot of thought that must go into the integration of technology, and not just a mad grab for the internet. While technology is a great wielder of information and communication it is also a trap for procrastination. One can not look at the world of technology as a toy, for doing so limits even the best students and dooms the weakest. By accepting and even embracing technology allows teachers to grow the minds of children.
Some would stay it is because students do not want to study and just find it much easier to just purchase a essay online or to park their seat next to the “nerd” in the class to ensure that you ace every pop quiz. Others would say that the pressures of being scholastically advanced are too much of a burden, so they cheat to ensure that their goals are achieved they way their parents and teachers visualize for them. Whatever the reason, is it worth the risk or should students just be satisfied with the grades that they actually earned. Cheating may not always be the first option for some students but end up being the last resort in some situations. In high school, if a child is trying to land scholarship or trying to get into a prestigious school that only accepts the elite of the elite you are pressured to excel in all aspects of your academic career.
