A Teacher’s Triumph
‘I dreamt of stars; I got a planet’

Write a personal reflection and what can you say of Dr. Biyo’s passion of teaching.

Indeed, learning is a continuous process. That for every inch of time that we spend in this world, we do what we love to do and along the way of surviving each passing day, we learn something new, the world evolves so does ourselves. I can relate that thought to what Dr. Biyo had said. She always considers herself to improve on her field. She seeks for knowledge of something on which she doesn’t know yet, she strongly believe that by learning more, she would be able to share everything with the people around her. A point which showed that she didn’t aimed for personal achievements, but instead she was thinking of the true recipients of her determination, these are the people especially the children that will partake from her knowledge.

One doesn’t have to possess everything that he needs in order to continue to make a difference, but by having the right attitude, the will to move forward, the faith are enough. Materialistic things can make one to move fast or work conveniently, but we can make use of everything around us even to the cheapest level, and still have an excellent outcome. Dr. Biyo never failed to innovate to make learning as interesting as possible, with or without the materials or facilities that she had in mind, and she never forgot the role of the environment in her teaching. Learning outside, not only to what the classroom has to offer, is beneficial to learners as they would have a bigger view or perception of things as compared to what they could just hear or read inside.

She never failed to touch lives with all the means that she had, to teach them what she knows, but on top of that, she didn’t develop the superiority over the people around her. She stood her ground as a teacher to her students…...

Triumph of the Nerds

...REACTION PAPER Prepared to: MS. AILEEN L. RILLON The Triumph of the Nerds is a documentary chronicles of the rise of the personal computer/home computer beginning in the 1970s with the Altair 8800, Apple I and Apple II and VisiCalc. It highlighted the progress and competitiveness of the market between companies like Microsoft, Apple, IBM, Xerox, and Lotus, just to name a few. It continues through the IBM PC and Apple Macintosh revolution through the 1980s and the mid 1990s, ending at the beginning of the Dot-com boom with the release of Windows 95.

It is the great story in the history that has affected the daily living of the individuals today…and obviously, for the next years, centuries, and millennium to come. With the human, he has transformed the existence of the people at the speed of an avalanche. It created another new dimension to discover and to explore. It leads our lives in another portal of world. Consider current trends such as today’s youth do not like to talk on the telephone. They should rather communicate via electronic telegrams tapped out with their thumbs. That is very strange. What if those “nerds” did not come up with the idea of creating computer? What would possibly happen to us? In a world characterized by a chaotic lifestyle of the “instant”, it is not uncommon to be caught in the whirlwind of hi-tech era. One very obvious application of computers in our lives is......

Triumphs of Training

...TRIUMPHS OF TRAINING PGR Nair In the year 1996, when I was the president of Cochin Film Society, I organized a week long “Film Appreciation camp” in Cochin drawing people from all over Kerala. PK Nair, the former curator of National Film Archives of India was the Camp director. The purpose was to give training to movie buffs on how to understand and appreciate good films. It included screening of over 40 world film classics ranging from “Battleship Potemkin” (Eisenstein) to modern masterpieces like “Elektra My Love” (Miklos Jancso) followed by discussion sessions. The Camp was inaugurated by the great Malayalam Novelist and Jnanpeeth award winner MT Vasudevan Nair, popularly known as MT. MT is also well-known in Kerala as a film script writer whose films have won National awards several times. During his speech he inspired us with a powerful example of transformation a film society in Karnataka achieved through training. In a village near Belgaum, every evening the Belgaum film society used to freely screen film classics in world cinema to an assembly of villagers in a maidan. The films included works from masters such Akira Kurosawa, Bergman , Federico Fellini, Michelangelo Antonioni, Satyajit Ray. A veteran Kannada film critic used to make an introductory appreciation speech about each film and he would then translate the English subtitles into Kannada language so that the villagers understood each film in all respects. A month following this regular exposure of...

It was also stated that the Relationship between IBM and Microsoft was an interesting one. It lasted 10 years and made both companies a lot of money. IBM became the biggest PC manufacturer because of it but because of some mistakes also cost them a lot of money in the long run.

Triumph of the Avant-Garde

...“Triumph of the avant-garde” The term “avant-garde” was originally used in reference to the advancement of a military unit. In the late 18th century and into the 19th century, a movement began in art and architecture that was intended to do just that. Artists were beginning to move forward in their expression of ideas. They were trying new techniques, and testing the boundaries of what was acceptable. These avant-garde artists were beginning to challenge art itself and its very definition. Up to his point, art was about expression, but the expression was limited by rules and governed by the very specific influences of period. For the purposes of success and acceptance, most artists up to this point conformed to the “norm”. Art was about making a specific product that was pleasing to the eye. But during the late 18th century, political and social changes were also changing the way artists were expressing themselves. New techniques were being introduced. In fact, much of art became less about the final product, and more about the technique and process itself. Artists were being less influenced by trends, and more influenced by the desire for social and political change. Artists were also beginning to focus more on expressing their own personal thoughts, feelings, and ideas. A great example of this is the synthetism used by Paul Gauguin. With it, he synthesized the observation of subjects in nature with his own personal feelings about the subjects. An......

Sharing in the Triumph

...Sharing In The Triumph Academic Writing Tim Lu 07.10.2014 Among numerous subjects in myriads of fields, mathematics and philosophy, demanding impeccably logical thinking, share a great deal of features. All of the deans of ancient mathematics, Pythagoras; of Renaissance, Gottfried Leibniz; of modern, Bertrand Russell, were also major philosophers. Meanwhile, the ultimate ambitions of both subjects are closely linked—to give an explanation of everything by finding the general rules and patterns governing the entire universe. Nevertheless, it is reasonable to deduce that almost no one is able to state the subtle connection between these two fields. Try wandering in the most densely populated spot in New York City, Times Square, and asking someone from the crowd. Therefore, it is a good idea to show how they can blend into each other. Theory, as the word is used by scientists, is the highest expression of the quintessential ideas. In mathematics, some influential theories eventually boil down to philosophical ideas after their natures have been extracted and refined, and vice versa, even though the creators of such theories do not intentionally start thinking with ideas from the other discipline. For instance, the Nash Equilibrium, the great idea from John F.Nash, also a milestone in the development of game theory, has changed the foundations of economics. However, if we meticulously deconstruct this theory until we find its intrinsic nature, a philosophical idea will......

Triumph of the Nerds

...Triumph of The Nerds-Part 1 Bob Cringely “PC gossip columnist” Abstract Bob Cringely puts PC big shots and nerds on the spot, and tells their incredible true stories from his own Silicon Valley garage. Bob speaks about the emergence of the Personal Computer (PC), stimulating the “PC Revolution”. And it was all started by nerds. It happened more or less by accident; the people who made it happened were amateurs; and for the most part still are. Part 1 is entitled: IMPRESSING THEIR FRIENDS-They did it because they were geniuses; they did it because they were addicted to the mental challenge. But mostly they just invented personal computing to impress their friends. From the Homebrew Computer Club and the first PC—the Altair 8800—they went from being hobbyists to holding court to IBM. The video is more than an entertaining look at the PC industry. Part I: Impressing their Friends, documents how a bunch of high school and college “nerds” created the microcomputer, not as a means to great wealth, but simply as a hobby to impress their friends. Only Apple co-founder Steve Jobs and Microsoft co-founders, Bill Gates and Paul Allen seemed to sense at this point in time the business potential at this early stage of the industry. The computer industry might not have taken off, if it were not for the Hippies. They caused the development of the PC industry. And in the “Homebrew Club”, a PC computer called Apple was founded by Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak. Apple had a shaky......

Reflections

...ED 250 REFLECTIONS 1 The Need for Teacher Education . The week two lectures had highlighted an important issue which has come under a lot of criticisms for the past years. This was the need for teacher education. Although many critics still feel that teacher education is a waste of time or that field experience is more important. Most do not realize that the need of teacher’s professional development is essential for the improvement of education all over the world and thus the expectancy for quality teacher education is becoming higher every day. First off, there are countless criticisms to the need for teacher education. However the two that I will focus on are firstly, the critic that teachers are “born and not made.” I feel that in order to be become a good teacher , you must learn the skills, knowledge as well get the experience to achieve the goal of being or becoming a good teacher. I do not agree with the statement that teachers are born ; for they are made. Teacher education is thus based on the theory that teachers are made and not born in contrary to the assumption that they are born. Since teaching is considered an art and a science, the teacher has to acquire not only the knowledge but also the skills or the ‘tricks of the trade’. In addition to this, another criticism is that knowing my subject content is sufficient. This I disagree with, because it definitely will not prepare you for the classroom and the school environment. I believe that educating......

Teacher's Career

...Teacher’s Career By: Name of the Class: Professor: Name of the School: City and State: Date: Teacher’s career Systematic synthetic phonics has been the only effective way to teach early reading for many years. However, other methods those are even more efficient than the systematic synthetic phonics have been in use in various English speaking countries. Many reports before the Rose Review done in the year 2006 provide evidence of other methods used in teaching early reading. (Sheerman, 2009, p.36) Compares non-phonics and accurate systematic phonics programs and notes a slight difference in their effectiveness with non-phonics being on the lower margin. Other reports have proved beyond any reasonable doubt the existence of other strategies for teaching early reading. The studies reported some of the strategies as being more efficient than others. However, according to Annette Karmiloff-Smith (2009, p. 300), reading is a various area of knowledge with diverse needs that cannot be addressed by a single approach. Therefore, the teachers taking pupils through early reading must be familiar with various teaching strategies and understand when to apply the different methods. These teachers must also understand the reasons that contribute to the usage of particular teaching strategies (Adamuti-Trache & Robert, 2013). The above reports support the use of different approaches in contrary to systematic synthetic phonics. They both...

Teacher's Statement

...Tanya Calandrelli Teacher’s Statement I believe that having a genuine passion for teaching is a key attribute to be an outstanding teacher. Additionally, I believe that an outstanding teacher will show their students that they are able to relate to them, and have a genuine care for them, their well-being, and academic success. By showing a child such genuine interest and care provides them to feel safe in the classroom and with their teacher. Further, it encourages students to attend, engage in, and enjoy the class, which then can help strengthen a child’s ability to better retain classroom material and receive better grades, all of which essentially is helping the child to be more confident and successful. I believe that the necessary skills of an outstanding teacher are having solid knowledge of the content being taught. Additionally, organization, multi-tasking, and management of classroom, along with being able to appropriately resolve any behavioral issues that may arise, are also important skills to be a successful and outstanding teacher. I would address a wide range of skills and activities in my classrooms according to my students needs. For example, some students may learn better from hands on activities, while others may benefit more from visualizing, drawing, etc., while others may work best in groups. Therefore, I would utilize working centers, graphics, posters, group presentations, and other appropriate methods and techniques. Further, I would provide......
