Alexa?: Possibilities Of Voice Assistant Technology And Artificial Intelligence In The Classroom, Patrick D. Hales, Melissa Anderson, Tonya Christianson, Amber Gaspar, Billi Jo Meyer, Beth Nelson, Krista Shilvock, Mary Steinmetz, Makenzi Timmons, Michelle Vande Weerd

Patrick Hales

The following paper represents the combined effort of 10 educators exploring the experience and use of voice assistant technology in classrooms. This reflection and study of our classrooms looks to better understand both our use of technology and students’ use of technology in very specific ways. Is there a place for voice assistant technology in our classrooms? What benefits are there? What obstacles exist? We tell our stories and experiences here with the intent to provide context and continue the discussion among more of our colleagues.

Design-Led Innovation For Learning And Assessment In Food Education.Pdf, Angela Turner Nov 2016

Design-Led Innovation For Learning And Assessment In Food Education.Pdf, Angela Turner

Dr Angela Turner

Directions for an innovation climate have been evident since 1996 when the Federal Government endorsed the Australian Science Technology and Engineering Council for its first comprehensive foresight review identifying essential priorities as a national interest in innovation capacity building Australia’s future generations. As the Australian economy continues to transition away from the mining boom and shifts focus to the agriculture sector in regional communities, the country’s future growth is dependent on fostering and promoting innovative ideas as a National Innovation & Science Agenda (Australian Government, 2016). Sustainable and effective learning of technological practice has important implications for innovation capacity ...


Influence Of Parents, Peers, Internet Product Search And Visual Social Media On College Students’ Purchase Behavior: A Mixed Methods Study, Jennifer E. Johnson Jun 2015

Influence Of Parents, Peers, Internet Product Search And Visual Social Media On College Students’ Purchase Behavior: A Mixed Methods Study, Jennifer E. Johnson

Jennifer Johnson

Visually-oriented online social networking websites (VSNS) have become frontrunners in the race for popularity among all other online social networks. Pinterest, Instagram, Wanelo, and Snapchat have allowed for consumers to share their everyday lives, as well as the products that define their personal cultures. Products that require less financial and social risk tend to not only be influenced by online social networking websites, but also by peers (Kim & Sung, 2008). Products that require more financial and social risk tend to be influenced by family members and the amount of Internet product search behavior (Drozdenko, Jensen, & Coelho, 2012). Little research has ...

Food Innovation And Technacy Genre Theory: Implications For Teaching And Learning, Angela Turner, Kurt Seemann Dec 2011

Food Innovation And Technacy Genre Theory: Implications For Teaching And Learning, Angela Turner, Kurt Seemann

Dr Angela Turner

One of the most rapidly developing and ubiquitous areas on offer in many school curriculums is the study of our physical and digital world; we may refer to this broad area as the study of anthropological technologies. A significant dimension of this field is the study of food technology, which is under pressure to be a source for solutions to world food production. This chapter presents research on how well the school system aligns with the post school demand for the range of skills and knowledge required to meet the complex challenges facing food innovations and production. The findings suggest ...


The Teaching Of Food Technology In Schools, Angela Turner Dec 2010

The Teaching Of Food Technology In Schools, Angela Turner

Dr Angela Turner

This paper presents a summary of findings from a recent Australian study that investigated perceptions of ‘food technology’ as viewed by teachers in secondary schools compared to a wider professional view. Maintaining and fostering a coherent and accurate perception throughout the food technology career, from school leaver to professional undergraduate studies, is critical for both the evolution of the field of knowledge and the need to keep up with increasing world demand for food technologists and food innovation. While ‘food technology’ has been well established in most secondary school curriculum offerings, a contradiction has emerged between the ‘school view’ of ...

In this arrangement, the industry and profession of food technologists represent the ‘demand’ side of the process that starts with receiving students ‘supplied’ by the schools sector into undergraduate food science ...

Twentieth Century Economics Of Child-Rearing In Japan, Michele Gibney May 2005

Twentieth Century Economics Of Child-Rearing In Japan, Michele Gibney

Michele Gibney

In order to explain the falling Total Fertility Rate (TFR) in Japan, it is necessary to look at the social factors affecting women and raising children in Japan. By examining historical factors surrounding women in Japan—their education, their presence in the workforce, and the cultural stigmas attached to their stereotypical representation—I will attempt to describe the deteriorating TFR in Japan as an economic problem with political and social repercussions. In conclusion I will also try to provide a prognosis and a recommendation for a solution.

This is a report on the Los Angeles Transfer and Retention of Urban Community College Students (TRUCCS) Project, which tracks approximately 5,000 community college students from nine campuses of the Los Angeles Community College District in order to gather information on retention and persistence. The project also investigates urban community college student patterns of reverse transfer, remediation, and social integration. The report indicates that the student ethnic and age diversity in the TRUCCS project reflects the total ethnic and age diversity of the Los Angeles Community College District, with Hispanic and African-American students representing a majority of the total ...

Student affairs professionals take seriously their responsibilities for fostering learning and personal development....If learning is the primary measure of institutional productivity by which the quality of undergraduate education is determined, what and how much students learn also must be criteria by which the value of student affairs is judged. (ACPA, p.2. 1994)
