Effects That Education Has on the Development of a Country

...One of the crucial elements which contribute to the development of a person is education. People should be surrounded with good opportunities throughout their lives, and having received a good education gives them a greater chance of doing so, because education enables them to have more welfare in life. As people live in prosperities, the development of a country will be carried to a good level in the future. In my opinion, education is the single and most important in the development of a country. First of all, education is something that follows us as we grow up to be adolescents. Children start school generally when they are 4~6 years old, and in that process of going through their childhood and teenage period, they structure their outline of life from their experiences gained at school. Many decisions are asked and required by and from the students, and dreams and goals are also concepted at school. These decisions and visions construct a person's character, habits, and one's way of thinking. If inadequate education were to meet a student during this phase, then the potentials that one might certainly pertain in a normal educational environment might not be possible. Going on, the gap between the well educated and less educated is evermore becoming a great problem in many countries around the world. Well-educated people are thought of as a valued asset in accordance to their country and society. As these 'well-educated' people continue to gain a higher......

Analyze the Effects of Education on Development of Countries

...Analyze the Effects of Education on Development of Countries In the past few years, many countries are in the high speed of development process. During this competitive period, the demand for talent worldwide is increasing rapidly. The governments are gradually aware of the importance in investing in education to improve their governance. For instance, around the world 78 percent of children graduated from primary school in 2000, while by 2005 this figure rose to 83 percent (Brown, 2008). Education is now considered at the top priority in a nation’s development. There is not an overstatement that each country needs an education system which is adapted to the condition of a country. Moreover, every country is still mapping out a road towards a proper education system. In this long transition, education has brought many effects to the development on economy, politics and society. This essay will examine each of these three key points individually and consider how education has affected the development of countries. Education is important to the individual’s economy. There is a huge gap between the rich and the poor at present all over the world. Poverty seems to be inherited, and the majority of these poor are the children of people who lived in poverty and are not able to acquire knowledge as equally as the rich peers do. The result of this is that poor children have to struggle to compete with adults to gain jobs. However, there is a solution which is offering poor children...

Introduction of Education for Sustainable Development

...INTRODUCTION Education for Sustainable Development(ESD) allows every human being to gain the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values necessary to build a sustainable future. Education for Sustainable Development means including key sustainable development issues into teaching and learning, for example climate change, disaster risk reduction, biodiversity, poverty reduction, and sustainable consumption. It also requires teaching and learning methods that can motivate and encourage learners to change their behaviour and concern for sustainable development. Education for Sustainable Development also promotes competencies like critical thinking, imagining future scenarios and making decisions in a collaborative way. Sustainability education (ES), Education for Sustainability (EfS), and Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) are interchangeable terms describing the practice of teaching for sustainability. Various approaches to ESD encourage people to understand the complexity, and synergies between, the issues threatening planetary sustainability and understand and assess their own values and those of the society who live in the context of sustainability. ESD seeks to involve people in sustainable future negotiation, decision making and acting on them. It is generally agreed that sustainability education must be customized for individual learners, according to Tilbury and Wortman, the following skills are essential to ESD. Envisioning – being able to imagine a......

Developing Products………………………………………………………….4 III. Product Differentiation……………………………………………………..10 IV. Conclusion and Recommendations ………………………………………..13 V. Works Cited…………………………………………………………………..15 Introduction Product development is one of the most important aspects to any business. New and innovative products have placed companies like Apple, Google and Samsung on the map. Companies like General Motors have been able to rebound from bankruptcy thanks to product development. On the other hand, companies like Eastman Kodak have fallen by the wayside due to their inability to keep up with new products. According to an article in the European Journal of Engineering Education, “Product development is the set of activities starting with the perception of a market need and ending in the production and sale of a new product satisfying that need” (Silva, Arlindo, Elsa Henriques, Aldina Carvalho). By successfully developing a product firms can see increased profits as well as an increased market share. To the helicopter game players, proper product development can set one team apart and earn them more profits. The purpose of this research paper is to explain how to successfully build a product through the phases of product development and product differentiation. As well as to give......

Education Action Research

...Play and creative arts are important aspects of children’s learning that are being used in kindergartens. This action research project explores the using of play and creative arts in a kindergarten classroom. The purpose of this study is to evaluate and analyze how play and creative arts activities enhance and support children’s learning in literacy and numeracy lessons. Qualitative methods were used to gain data that reflect on the implementation of play and creative arts strategies and activities in teaching and the interpretation collected from participants. The three types of tools that used to collect data are observations, interviews and a reflective journal to ensure validity of results. After analyzing the data, two interrelated themes emerged. The first theme highlights the benefits of play and creative arts in early childhood. The second theme shows the benefits of using them can support literacy and numeracy development. Consequently play and creative arts seems to promote development in children’s learning processes and they also offer the learners’ confidence in their learning. To conclude, this study shows that play and creative arts may have positive effect in improving the children’s overall performance and attitudes. Play and creative arts are important aspects of children’s learning that are being used in kindergartens. This action research project explores the using of play and creative arts in a kindergarten classroom. The purpose of this study is to......

Research Education

...RESEARCH EDUCATION Research comprises "creative work undertaken on a systematic basis in order to increase the stock of knowledge, including knowledge of man, culture and society, and the use of this stock of knowledge to devise new applications."[1] It is used to establish or confirm facts, reaffirm the results of previous work, solve new or existing problems, support theorems, or develop new theories. A research project may also be an expansion on past work in the field. To test the validity of instruments, procedures, or experiments, research may replicate elements of prior projects, or the project as a whole. The primary purposes of basic research (as opposed to applied research) are documentation, discovery, interpretation, or the research and development (R&D) of methods and systems for the advancement of human knowledge. Approaches to research depend on epistemologies, which vary considerably both within and between humanities and sciences. There are several forms of research: scientific, humanities, artistic, economic, social, business, marketing, practitioner research, etc. Forms of research Scientific research is a systematic way of gathering data, a harnessing of curiosity. This research provides scientific information and theories for the explanation of the nature and the properties of the world. It makes practical applications possible. Scientific research is funded by public authorities, by charitable organizations and by private groups, including many......

...WHAT IS R&D ? Research and development (R&D, also called research and technical development or research and technological development, RTD inEurope) is a specific group of activities within a business. The activities that are classified as R&D differ from company to company, but there are two primary models. In one model, the primary function of an R&D group is to develop new products; in the other model, the primary function of an R&D group is to discover and create new knowledge about scientific and technological topics for the purpose of uncovering and enabling development of valuable new products, processes, and services. Under both models, R&D differs from the vast majority of a company's activities which are intended to yield nearly immediate profit or immediate improvements in operations and involve little uncertainty as to the return on investment (ROI). The first model of R&D is generally staffed by engineers while the second model may be staffed with industrial scientists. R&D activities are carried out by corporate (businesses) or governmental entities. R&D is a form of applied research. BACKGROUND New product design and development is more often than not a crucial factor in the survival of a company. In an industry that is changing fast, firms must continually revise their design and range of products. This is necessary due to continuous technology change and development as well as other competitors and the changing......

Research on Education

...Importance of Educational Research The Importance of Conducting Research in an Educational Setting Human beings conduct research every day. They do so in many different ways and in many different settings. One important area is education. Conducting research in an educational setting should be an important aspect of every educator’s professional life. Best and Kahn (1993) describe research as “the systematic and objective analysis and recording of controlled observations that may lead to the development of generalizations, principles, or theories, resulting in prediction and possibly ultimate control of events” (p. 27). Education in a research setting is done to improve school practices and at the same time to improve those individuals who strive to improve those practices (Best & Kahn, 1993). The importance of research in an educational setting is often overlooked, however. Those in academia often consider research as a way to earn tenure or remain in favor by the university that employs them. Faculty who wish to thrive in the university setting must publish or perish in order to remain employed. Educators often forget that they are failing to fulfill their pedagogical responsibilities if they do not remain current in their field of teaching interest. In lieu of using research to better their teaching practice, research is used simply to hold on to a job (Hall, 2002). This is unfortunate because it takes away from the most important aspect of educational research, the......

...Research Development The video portion about brain researcher Amere Ras and his work in hypnotic suggestion brings up many questions in regards to treating mental health or addiction. In this he sheds some light on the power of suggestion and how if you are susceptible to hypnosis it can have a huge impact on your learning abilities and if you could possibly be treated with hypnosis. In this paper I will explain what Ras was trying to accomplish and will also tell you about how I would conduct this study if I were to do it. What was the purpose of this study? When Ras first conducted this study his intentions were to show us how he could undo automatic behaviors such as reading and being able to understand your native language. He used a test called the Stroop Color-Word Test that consists of colors that are written in words but in the wrong color ink. The test-taker has to be able to state the color that the word is written in and be able to ignore whatever the actual word is. For example, if you see the word “red” but it’s written in blue ink, the correct answer would be “blue”(Heerema, 2014). When he conducted this test he had two groups, one that was highly susceptible to hypnosis and the other who was not. Those who were susceptible saw the words as foreign and only saw the colors, which made them do much better on the test. (Psychology media suite 2008) Ras scanned the brain while completing this experiment and noticed that the anterior cingulated cortex, the......

...Research and Development John Segura University of Phoenix PSY/335 Research Method Prof. Tiffany D. Cron Abstract The class was to watch the "Attention and Consciousness-Unlearning through Hypnosis" video that was located in this week's Electronic Reserve Readings. We are to use this paper to answer several questions on what was presented in the video. I will delve into what the purpose of the study was, how the study applies to the real world, if there were other studies or steps to contribute to the study what would it be and how would I conduct it, and how would I apply the steps of the scientific method and ho would I test my hypothesis. This paper will be interesting because I feel that hypnosis can be used to cure many ailments and even help people from continuing bad habits. Research Development In the video we met a brain researcher by the name of Amir Raz, from New York State Psychiatric Institute. Dr. Raz with his work has shown that through his work that there is a form of hypnotic suggestion that can make some people undo automatic behaviors, such as being able to understand their native language. The purpose of the study was to show that by using the Stroop Color-Word Test, he found that the brains of highly suggestible people under hypnosis processed the words as foreign, and screened only for color and therefore did much better on the task since the words did not interact with the color. In the study Dr. Raz was focusing on suggesting that the......
