Technology Integration in K12 Education in Taiwan and the United States

Taiwan has earned a reputation for being one of the leading countries with advanced technology industries. High tech gadgets and devices are affordably available all over the country. Technology has simply fascinated the population. But is this technology being integrated in the classrooms? Are high tech gadgets and computer based technology (Computer Based Technology) being harnessed effectively for classroom use?
In a study made by Yi-Wen Hung and Ying-Shao Hs of the National Taiwan University in 2007 entitled “Examining Teachers’ CBT Use in the Classroom: A Study in Secondary schools in Taiwan”, it was found out that most Taiwanese teachers are using computers a lot but mainly for accessing the internet, writing documents, sending emails but hardly for teaching related tasks except for grading.
Similarly, in the United States, a study made by National Center for Educational Statistics in 2009 revealed that while 97% of teachers surveyed have access to computers in the classroom, most of them (66%) use it for research.
There are teachers who even believe that students spend more time with high tech gadgets such as iPods, wii and ps3 which they believe are distracting their from traditional books.
But computer based technology means more than making research work for teachers easier as well as being more than mere fun and recreational tools for student.
Educators are fast coming to the realization that CBT can be used to recapture the students’ attention and liven up their learning interest to what they would otherwise dismiss as dull topics.
Taiwan has been pouring resources to develop innovative classroom technology. In Nanhu Elementary School in Taipei, it launched a model of what they called eFuture Classroom incorporating a futuristic design equipped with computers and projection equipment. In Ren-ai Junior High, teachers use portable interactive eBoards instead of the traditional white boards. The eBoard is a large interactive display connected to a computer and a projector. The computer’s desktop is projected onto the eBoard’s touch screen surface where users can navigate the computer using a pen, a pointer or simply with the use of their hands. This alternative mode of teaching attracts and encourages more students to participate in class discussions and activities.
Technology and teaching actually compliment each other. Technology can have a profound impact on improving teaching. Educators must be able to understand and integrate emerging technologies and learn to integrate them into classroom use. Conversely, the popular use of a technology in classroom teaching can impact how technologies continue to take shape.
Most of our K12 students today have actually grown up as part of the digital revolution and can be considered ‘tech savvy’. The use of and integration of technology into classroom teaching would have a profound and successful effect. Cell phones, SMS messaging, cloud technology, and even blogging and social networks sites can actually be harnessed for classroom learning. Digital gaming and simulations can be explored for possible ways they can be used to reinforce learning.
The possibilities of using emerging technologies for classroom teaching is boundless limited only by how far a teacher’s creativity and imagination can go. However, because of the ease with which information can be had using such technologies, security concerns and child protection issues must not be taken for granted.…

Learning the World of Technology Through Computers – A Tutorial

Technology has always been a part of our lives, from building the first clubs and fires to the Space Age and the Information Age. We always learn enough about technology to use it as part of our daily living, but computer technology is one of the least understood parts of our existence. Therefore this series of articles will clarify some of the mysteries of computers.
What are the benefits of learning more about computers? If you are totally satisfied and have no frustrations with your computer, you are part of a very lucky minority! However, like every other type of technology, the more you understand it the better equipped you will be to handle the many issues that can arise. Knowledge is power, after all! You will be able to help yourself better with this information, and you will be able to help, and impress, your friends as well. So let’s dig into the insides of your computer.
This introductory article will talk about the parts of the computer, and the difference between the various parts such as hardware and software, programs and data and memory and storage. Future articles in the series will go more in-depth on these as well as many other topics. Questions and discussions from readers will also be addressed in future articles.
What do you see when you look at a computer system? The most basic modern setup will include four components; the computer itself, a mouse, a keyboard and a monitor. There may be many other additional components such as printers, modems, speakers, microphones, etc. Let’s start with our basic four component system.
It is helpful to consider this model of the computer: The computer itself computes information (processing); we have to provide information into the computer (input) in order to receive new information from the computer (output). Every piece of computer equipment provides one or more of these functions, input, processing and output.
A keyboard and a mouse provide input into the computer. After processing the information the results are output to a monitor or a printer. Some devices can provide both input and output. For instance, we can receive an email from a friend (input from the internet through the modem) and reply to the email (output to the internet through the modem). Or you can create a spreadsheet and save it to your hard drive (input data to the hard drive) and later open the spread sheet from the hard drive (output data from the hard drive). The modem and the hard drive are capable of both input and output, so they are known as input-output (I/O) devices.
Hardware is any device you can physically touch. Every device talked about so far can be physically touched. Software cannot be touched. It is the electronic information created by the flow or absence of an electrical signal. You cannot touch the programs or data used on your computer. You can touch and hold a hard drive, or a CD or a DVD, so these are all examples of hardware. But you cannot touch the flow or absence of an electrical signal, the zeros and ones that make up the binary world of computers. If you can touch it, it is hardware; if you cannot touch it, it is software.
Programs and data are both considered to be software, because they are composed of the flow or absence of electrical signals, the binary zeros and ones that computers process. The words programs and applications are pretty much the same; they are instructions that tell a computer what to do. The data you create might be a document, spreadsheet, graphic, or email.
All software, programs and data, are kept on the computer in one form or another. When you are working on a word processing document, for example, you have loaded the program (word processor) and data (document) into the RAM (Random Access Memory) of the computer. This is where it is kept while the computer is actively processing the information.
But what happens when you turn off the electricity to the computer? There is only an absence of electrical signal, which would be all zeros in the binary world of the computer. So we must have a way of storing the information so we can use it again later. This is why we use the hard drive. But the hard drive does not have electrical current flowing when the power is off, so it uses an equivalent technique. Like the cassette tapes of yesteryear, the hard drive has a magnetic surface that stores information.
Think of a compass, with North and South poles. North and South can be used to represent the zeros and ones the computer processes. Now all the directions between North and South represent the full range of audio signals in …

An Overview Of Current DLP Technology

Digital Light Processing (DLP):

A History And Review Of Current DLP Technology

Whether you are in the market for a new TV, a front projector, or if you are simply trying to decide whether or not to replace your lamp – DLP technology is often the best value on the market. DLP’s are getting cheaper and cheaper. They are considered by many to be the best devices to deliver top-notch image quality at bargain pricing.

To understand the background of the technology, DLP, or Digital Light Processing, is a trademark owner by Texas Instruments, representing a technology used in some TV’s and video projectors. It was originally developed by Dr. Larry Hornbeck of Texas Instruments, in 1987.

The first high-definition television (HDTV) sets hit the market in 1998. Since then a number of changes have occurred in the industry. While plasmas and LCD’s have garnered much of the attention over the last couple of years Digital Light Processing, or DLP, has quietly drifted under the radar. DLP is commonly used in front projectors and rear projection television sets. Precise digital images make DLP technology ideal for high definition.

By understanding the technology, we find out why it is superior. DLP technology is based on a chip that contains millions of tiny mirrors. These mirrors are systematically activated when they receive digital signals. This allows them to project a larger image onto the screen. The DLP chip is faster than any other imaging technology on the market. This makes it ideal for high-definition movies, sports, and television shows. The pixels in DLP technology refresh quickly producing images with greater sharpness, clarity, and contrast.

DLP is the leading technology in front projectors. Front projectors, similar to those used in movie theaters, can fill up to 100 inch screens. As DLP projectors became more and more affordable they have also benefited from an explosion in popularity. Their ability to project an enormous, high-quality picture from a relatively small device is currently unparalleled. This is why many home theater buffs and business people love front projectors for parties, meetings, and trade shows.

The Pros of DLP Technology:

DLP gives you a bigger screen size for less cost

DLP produces smooth and jitter free images

DLP produces great contrast in dark environments

DLP renders color magnificently

DLP does not retain images (“burn-in”)

DLP does not give off a “screen door effect”

If size matters than DLP delivers the most bang for your buck!…

US Military Sales to Taiwan – Is It Safe to Allow That Technology to Be Stolen There?

Last year we were discussing the challenges of selling Taiwan our latest weapon systems in case they wanted to defend themselves against a Chinese forced reunification. If we don’t there would be little reason for China not to force their political will, but if we do, it’s well known that Chinese spies have infiltrated the Taiwan Military and political leadership, and thus, might someday use that same technology against us, our allies, or sell it to our enemies. Okay so, let’s talk.
You see it is my contention that Taiwan has been fully infiltrated, and thus, we ought to watch out for espionage or Chinese spies getting Lockheed’s technology (missile defense shield), and what about those F-16 upgrades, of course, China already has that due to Pakistan and other nations, the Chinese were all over the last India Air Show with the newest F-15 modifications for stealthier design, and F-16 modifications.
There are now direct flights between the countries (China and Pakistan), direct trade, and political talks at the highest levels, and previously there were lots of inter-connected flights through Hong Kong, etc. and the latest direct flights are bothersome too, not quite as serious as the secret flights between Venezuela and Iran, because it is important for those two nations to be on good-terms and continue talking – that prevents war and conflict.
Nevertheless, this is how proliferation occurs, just like the North Koreans selling nuclear weapons tech to Syria or the Pakistani scientist to Iran. We have some serious challenges around the world with military tech flows, and these are just a few of what’s out in open and well-known. The recent political talk between Taiwan and Chinese leaders about eventual re-unification, which seems to be a “trial close” sale on the Taiwanese voters, and whenever a Taiwan businessman (patriotic spy) or politician speaks out about China, all of a sudden he’s out of business, out of office and facing some sort of charges.
How about on the spy front? Well, there are several former bought-off Taiwanese double-spies converted into Chinese assets now. China wants our Aegis system tech, and the Metal Storm systems from Europe, as they know they need it, and they are right they are going to need it if they push much harder against South Sea bordering nations, as the US Navy is serious about keeping open shipping channels and open waters.
Does China think the US is weak? Well, perhaps they are not na?�ve to think that we are militarily weak, but they realize the US people cannot stomach a war. Of course, and during the Vietnam war, we wouldn’t bomb past the parallel, where the supply lines were coming from, how do you fight a way half way, my dad said we could have won that war in any 10-period had they let the various carrier groups and USAF in there. Oh well, also China looked pretty weak too when confronted with the Vietnamese who were not afraid to die to defend themselves.
It seems that when Chinese and US Politicians talk, they simply set aside many of these other issues, which are serious enough to discuss, and such a dialogue would be of value, as our nation’s economies are inter-connected of course. Please consider all this and think on it.…

Three Reasons Simulation Technology Should Revolutionize the Medical Industry

Aviation analogies are often used in discussion and analysis of medical quality issues. Both industries depend on the decision making of relatively few specialists to ensure the safety of their clients. In the case of both of pilots and clinicians, the smallest lapse in judgment can have a profound impact on human safety. The need for performance management in aviation launched a billion dollar flight simulation industry for approximately 75,000 flight crews worldwide. Death due to operator error has seen a dramatic reduction in aviation since the introduction of flight simulation technology. That and other process improvements have elevated aviation to one of the safest forms of travel.
Other studies show that 44% of physician-originated error results from a deficit in practitioner knowledge or skill. For an industry that is undergoing massive improvements in the quantity and efficacy of diagnostic and treatment options, the state of the art in disease training is surprisingly archaic. The primary method of delivering new information to physicians is still verbal and written. Medicine is well positioned to experience the benefits of simulation training.
Today web-based clinical simulation training is readily available and prepared to assist in the education and practice of medical professionals. Many note that it has the potential to alter the landscape of today’s medicine, providing quality education and unparalleled experience to today’s physician, nurse, and medical professional. There are many reasons how and why this educational tool can reduce human medical error in general. However, it is important to focus on three of the most important benefits of medical simulation and how it can alter the practice and understanding of today’s medicine.
1) Medical training in a consequence-free environment
When identifying, diagnosing, and prescribing in a virtual/web-based simulator, clinicians can feel more comfortable making decisions because they are in a consequence-free environment. If a clinician makes a serious error which results in patient injury or death in simulation, the likelihood of making the same mistake in clinical practice is significantly decreased.
2) Fewer restraints on clinical learning
Virtual patient simulators are available everywhere at once; the availability of high quality training is no longer constrained by access to classrooms, teachers, and experts. The medical student, nurse, or trained physician with access to a computer with an Internet connection is able to continue training at any time, day or night.
3) Reduced variability in clinical care delivery (i.e. fewer medical errors)
When training on advanced web-based simulators, such as , which utilize a “Quality Improvement Cycle”, a clinician’s treatment path is compared to best practices and, when available, medical guidelines, and medical error is quickly identified in a specific patient context. Recent studies ( ) demonstrate surprising efficacy in pre/post testing for simulation-based clinical learning.
Simulation training has the potential to revolutionize the medical industry by expanding training capabilities and ultimately enhancing clinical care standards. Its ability to train clinicians in a worry-free environment, easy accessibility, and ability to identify and remediate skill gaps suggest that simulation technology is well positioned to have a profound impact on the quality of healthcare training and delivery in the US.…

Why Brainwave Technology Is Superior To Hypnosis Training

Hypnosis training involves acquiring knowledge on how you can use your mind control techniques to convince another person or a group, e.g. to agree with you, in case of an argument. This can also be well be applied in advertising of the products whereby you will have to convince them to buy your this could be argued as an old fashioned way of winning the trust of the others and intimidating. As with improvement in technology it influence can be termed as short term as new methods which are more reliable have been developed. And the influence you had on a personal is more likely to be threatened or replaced.
Hypnosis only concentrates on getting the information to the subconscious part of the brains without offering the much needed help. Unlike hypnosis, Brainwave mind control technique can be termed as the one expected to have a long term effect. Besides give out information and persuading, it offers solution to the individuals such as how they can an addiction. This goes a long way to fulfilling their emotion vacuum hence you can consider it as the most effective way. It’s the most advantageous of the two as in a later date you will need little effort to get things your way.
Brainwave persuasion is what advertising agencies such as the TV use. They are always will to spend millions as the known million will fall for their advertisements hence resulting to more sales. If you happen to employ this tactics you are granted to succeed and have an upper hand than your competitors. This goes a long way to improving on how you interacting with people making your work easy. The end results are more profit if you’re in business, excelling in your career and improved relationships
You can use the art of persuasion and it power of mind changing to lay a ground for a successive business. This is possible as you will convince the customers that they are getting the best of the deals. This can’t be possible with hypnosis as it deals squarely with giving information only. The technology has proved that they make customer feels in control which is not the case with hypnosis whereby they only view themselves as customers. With the right technology your communication skills will be upgraded enabling you to handle arguments in an understanding and mature way. These enhance the relationship with the rest which will result in a big win for both.
Some people may take sometimes to make a decision hence a second persuasion is what is needed for them to comply.hypnosis training don’t offer this opportunity hence brainwave technology comes in handy. This gives them a sense of freedom and they will make it their responsibility to make the business successful without feeling being conned. This builds their confidence and at this point it is easy to persuade them to do whatever you wish done. As human being are created to like what others like hence it is good to parade your big number of your customers as this will attract many more.…
