THE PROBLEM AND ITS SETTING

Introduction

In the Philippines , most of the Filipinos experienced the modern technology of science. People now using the modern materials and machines all over the world and our country as well. The areas of modernization especially the communication and transportation gave big change of easiness of some hard and difficult works of Filipino people. The Laguna province shows progress not only in agriculture but also in industries. These changes and improvement were done through modern equipment. Different schools also improved their education with the help of these highly - technological equipment. In this 20th century, a years of information and revolution, computer appears as one of the most powerful all purpose and unique tool which is used in the world and also in our country nowadays. Computer is often use in companies, factories, hall, supermarkets, schools as well as in our house. It is said that using this tool makes work efficient, accurate, and with less effort. In companies, computer is used in business transactions, payrolls, inventories, and many more. Computer is also used at home for teaching and aids in attaining educational purpose for the benefits of the students. Computer can assist one in a particular subject. The best example of this is the (CAI)Computer – Assisted Instruction which contains several instructions for the readers. CAI is a computer based instructional programs for individual learners.

Use of Computer Aided Instruction in Teaching and Learning of Mathematics

...Abstract The paper investigates the use of computer aided instruction (CAI) in teaching and learning mathematics. It also explores the use of Instructional Materials Aided Methods (IMAM) as a close substitute. From the study, it was clear that computer-aided instruction enhanced the students performance in mathematics The design of the study was experimental. The hypothesis were tested using T-ratio at 0.05 level of significance and a reliability index of 0.85 was calculated from the test items; while the data were analyzed using mean and standard deviation. Introduction One of the problems of teaching and learning is the method of imparting knowledge to learners. According to stone (1991), the major difficulty in sciences is the method by which the subjects were customarily taught without regard to instructional materials. The pedagogical approach in imparting knowledge to learners has become inadequate to their needs. Mathematics, like other science subjects, recorded poor students performance both in national and international examination (Ali, 1983). Many factors contributed to the performance of students in mathematics examination Akale, (1996), Okebukola and Jegede (1996), Ottiah (1997) and Ali (1998). The factors include: a. Inability of the mathematics teachers to put across the mathematics concepts to the students. b. Lack of skills and competence required for teaching mathematics. c. Shortage of qualified mathematics teachers. d. Lack of teaching......

Assisted Suicide

...Proposal Essay Assisted Suicide: A Catholic’s Right To Die The right to choose whether to live or die should reside with the person who is terminally ill and no one else. According to the Catholic Church there are three moral principles on conserving health and life: sanctity of life, God’s dominion and human stewardship, and the prohibition against killing. Promoting the morality of the right to life, compassionate care and the power of divine love, the Catholic Church tries to offer a hopeful perspective. Radically different views than those of the Catholic Church are expressed by both healthy and terminally ill patients when surveyed. Several national organizations have been founded supporting a persons’ choice, to include the Hemlock Society and the Final Exit Network both with Arizona chapters. One of the main reasons terminally ill patients want the right to choose assisted suicide is to be able to die with dignity. The thought of being unable to care for yourself or recognize your family is particularly frightening and unwanted by most people. Mentally competent adults have a basic human right to end their lives when they suffer from a fatal or irreversible illness or excessive pain, when their quality of life is personally unacceptable, and the future holds only hopelessness and misery. Arizona is one of 34 states that have explicitly criminalized assisted suicide; only the states of Oregon and Washington permit physician assisted suicide with the......

Improving Assisted Technology

...Improving Assisted Technology With Machine Learning Techniques Senior Seminar in Computer Information Systems December 7, 2011 Abstract An ever increasing population of persons with learning disabilities are continually in need of better ways to overcome the unique challenges they face in today's modern, high communication world. While Assistive Technology is making strides to close the learning gap between persons with and without learning disabilities there is still a long way to go before technology provides a level playing field for these challenged individuals. Many of the issues with existing assistive technology revolves around clumsy, inefficient interfaces that struggle to find a balance between ease of use and sufficient complexity to ensure that the proper sequence of instructions is implemented. Machine learning is on the cutting edge of programming practices and presents some significant improvement possibilities in the areas of natural language processing, pattern recognition, and interface design. Machine learning has the potential to play a significant role in allowing assistive technologies to be more adaptive to persons with diverse sets of needs. This paper will attempt to define some specific areas of assistive technology that could benefit most from the application of machine learning. We will frame the definitions by aligning specific learning disabilities with current and future assistive technologies and then examining how the......

Answer the questions below, and type your answers in the “answer box.” Copy and paste the answer box into the discussion board forum titled “My Mother Never Worked.” If you are working with a partner or in a small group, type the full name of each group member into the subject line of your post. Answer Box 1. Answer question one under Purpose and Audience. Write the thesis IN YOUR OWN WORDS. I believe that the point that the writer is trying to prove is that her mother was a hard worker throughout her whole life who never once stopped working regardless of the circumstances or obstacles that she came across. I think that her thesis was never explicitly stated because the telephone conversation stated her thesis well. She stated her essay with the telephone conversation and in the pause between the response of the lady from the Social Security Office she goes back in time and gives a little background of all the jobs her mom had. The writer had a specific question and the lady had a solid answer. At the end of the passage the lady answered her question and gave her the news that she wasn’t eligible for death benefits because her mother never worked according to their records. In my opinion the thesis was in some way written throughout the whole essay when she was explaining all the jobs and task her mom actually had because at the end of the essay you don’t question the...

Computer - Assisted Coding

...Computer - Assisted Coding Angela Brown BINF 3301 Prof. Manger November 15, 2009 Computer –assisted coding (CAC) is a computerized tool that automates a set of medical or surgical codes, based on clinical documentation from a healthcare provider, which is used for review and validation. With the assistance of these new automation tools, coding or HIM professionals can easily translate clinical data input into useful clinical data output. Increased amounts of clinical coding is done by machines, which saves time and human participation for more complex coding cases and data analysis tasks. Factors, such as advances in natural language processing, EHR adoption, compliance issues and mandates for labor – intensive administrative reporting processes reduction, influenced the demand of CAC. Traditionally, clinical documentation (whether paper or electronic) is analyzed by a coder, translated into the appropriate ICD – 9 CM or CPT/HCPCS codes with the help of coding books or encoders and entered into a database. These new coding automation tools assists HIM professionals in translating data by automated code assignment instead of manual review and translation alone. As early as the 1950s, the technology of CAC – enabled tools, particularly Natural Language Processing (NLP), started with formal language theory. Throughout this time, technological progress was slow but technology has rapidly progressed and is constantly advancing at an exponential rate since the 1990s.......

Development and Validation of Computer Assisted Instruction

...(2005) computer-based tutorials have advantages such as students can interact with embedded questions then easily give feedbacks. * Laird (1985) by stimulating the senses, especially the visual sense, learning can be enhanced. * Computer assisted instruction – is an integrated module for the development and evaluation of the learning scheme of the users on the material provided. * * computer-assisted instruction (CAI), a program of instructional material presented by means of a computer or computer systems. The use of computers in education started in the 1960s. With the advent of convenient microcomputers in the 1970s, computer use in schools has become widespread from primary education through the university level and even in some preschool programs. Instructional computers are basically used in one of two ways: either they provide a straightforward presentation of data or they fill a tutorial role in which the student is tested on comprehension. If the computer has a tutorial program, the student is asked a question by the computer; the student types in an answer and then gets an immediate response to the answer. If the answer is correct, the student is routed to more challenging problems; if the answer is incorrect, various computer messages will indicate the flaw in procedure, and the program will bypass more complicated questions until the student shows mastery in that area. There are many advantages to using computers in educational instruction. They......
