Cloze Test asked in 2nd shift : 

Use of technology in education has been present throughout history. Over the last century, schools have modified their approach to teaching as well as the methods that are used to enhance student learning. Chalk and slate were at one time the newest technology. From there, technological changes have gone from film, radio, and television to desk-top computers and now onto interactive white boards and SMART Technology. 50 The capabilities teachers have with new technology give them the ability to differentiate lessons for better overall learning. Microsoft PowerPoint is one of the most popular technology tools used in any classroom. SMART Technologies has integrated the SMART Board software with PowerPoint thus combining the newest technology with the most popular.This brief description shows that new technology is being implemented into the classroom. Unfortunately, due to high costs, the more advanced the new equipment becomes, the less likely schools are to acquiring it for their classrooms.

Without sufficient funds, it is difficult for schools to obtain technologically advanced classrooms. SMART technology is the most recent equipment to enter the classroom. In 2002, SMART Boards ranged from $999.00 to $1,999.00, and that was for just the board. If a school wanted to better allocate their finances and purchase the rolling floor stand accessory, which makes the technology more accessible to all teachers.

Larry Cuban, Teachers and Machines; The Classroom Use of Technology Since 1920, (New York:Teacher College Press, 1986), 5.51 Mike Ballard, “SMART Board Interactive Whiteboards,” Multimedia Schools 9, no. 5 (2002): 55. Technology in Society and Education 28 it would pay an additional amount of somewhere between $429.00 to $499.00. Any school that desires new technology must have the capacity to purchase it. However, even with sufficient funds, a technological integration effort is only as strong as the administrative support behind it.

A vital aspect of creating a technologically advanced school is having a technologically advanced administration. School administrators can establish databases and spreadsheets as well as quickly send that information out to their staffs. Most teachers know how to teach their lessons without the implementation of technology. Inexperienced teachers may find it difficult to implement technology because they are still trying to acquire basic teaching skills.



Parajumble asked in 2nd shift :


Accidents are common for many reasons. Aside from the fact that China’s population is so large, most have to do with the fact that China is so new to the business of driving cars. In 2013 it added more cars to its roads than were driving in the whole country in 1999. In China, the number of vehicles has been increasing by 15m cars every single year for a decade. The number of licence-holders has risen even faster; one in five Chinese now has a licence. In the rich world, by contrast, the number of licence-holders is flat or falling.

Speed of development plays a large part. There had been a gradual increase in the number of drivers in rich countries. In China, as in nations such as Indonesia, car ownership has risen so fast that a large portion of those on the road are new drivers with limited experience. In every country insurance premiums for new drivers are high for a reason: people who have only just passed their test are more likely to be involved in an accident than those who have driven for years.

China certainly has some safety regulations in place. Drivers and passengers must wear seatbelts, for example, and mobile phones can only be used hands-free when driving. Unfortunately these laws are entirely ignored. Most taxis value keeping their seats clean over keeping their customers safe, so they cover the back seat and thus block the use of seat belts.

    When a driver in China accidentally hits a pedestrian, they will often run over the victim a few more times to ensure they are dead.
    Shocking CCTV footage reveals cars stopping after a collision and then deliberately reversing to crush whoever they have hit, whether it’s an innocent grandmother or a toddler.
    In 2008, local news reports revealed that a driver named Zhao Xiao Cheng had run over a 64-year-old man in Taizhou, Zhejiang province. He then rolled his Volkswagen Passat back and forth over the elderly pedestrian five times.
    In this confronting video from 2010, a BMW driver hits a three-year-old boy during the morning rush hour in Xinyi, Jiangsu province. He then hops out of the car and guides it back over the child three times.
    In January, a woman was caught on video repeatedly driving over an elderly man who had fallen in the snow and in May, a truck driver was filmed running over a young boy four times.
    This April, Slate reports, a BMW knocked down a two-year-old girl and drove over her head at a fruit market in Foshan in Guangdong province. When the girl’s grandmother shouted, “Stop! You’ve hit a child!” the unlicensed driver backed up over the girl and forward again. She then got out and offered the family a deal: “Don’t say that I was driving the car. Say it was my husband. We can give you money.”
    Prosecutors later accepted her claim it had been an accident, and recommended the court reduce her sentence to less than four years in prison.
    Meanwhile, Passat driver Zhao was found not guilty of intentional homicide, but of negligence, after claiming he thought he was driving over a bag of rubbish. He paid out about $US70,000 compensation.
