...Analyse the effects of education on the developing countries
Development is one of the themes of modern society and there are a variety of elements influencing the development. Many countries experience declares that education gradually play a more and more vital role in development. Education policies which depend on the specific national conditions can lead to a different result. Overall, primary education may be a key to promote the influence including population, health and economic growth. Secondary education not only provides some skilled workers to society, but also is the foundation of higher education. When the country tries to develop the high-tech economy and to transform the social structure, the tertiary education will make a necessary and positive effect on its development.
In the education system, basic education is the foundation of secondary and tertiary education. But primary education is not only a part of the education system. It is a very important element which impact on the level of mass culture, Social stability, economic development, population growth and public health. These parts and primary education are interrelated and interact on each other. It is an efficient way to develop these together and lead to a steady and rapid development...

Science 1 in the Early Years
Assessment: Item 1- Views of teaching and promoting science of young learners
The pedagogy of play can be hard to understand and part of the reason for this is it’s so difficult to explain how children learn by play because play isn’t simply; it is complex. Each child begins their early childhood education with a set of skills and prior knowledge that is influenced by their family, culture and past experiences (Fellows &Oakley, 2010). The past knowledge should become the foundation for developing an understanding of scientific concepts (Duschl, Schweingruber & Shouse, 2007). Children are naturally inquisitive, creative and aware of the world around them (Campbell & Jobling, 2012). Play is an important development tool and an effective way to teach children scientific concepts while using their prior knowledge (Preston, Mules, Baker & Frost, 2007). Learning science through play shows children that science is useful and enjoyable and is a significant aspect of the real world (Bulunuz, 2013). This essay will review teaching science through play, theorists who support play and the way in which the Australian curriculum and EYLF support play pedagogy.

Play pedagogy is a context for learning through which children organise and make sense of their social worlds, as they engage actively with people, objects and representations. Research shows...
...ADVERSEEFFECTS OF GROWING POPULATION
If the size of population of the country reaches the optimum level, it will not pose any problem. If the growth exceeds the reasonable limits, problems will crop up and that has happened in India. It means population in excess of demand or need proves to be a great liability to the society.
The unprecedented growth of population in India during the recent years has brought about a series of serious consequences. Some of the main effects of population may be described here.
(i) Population and Poverty:
Poverty and population very often go hand in hand. In fact, poverty is both the cause and the effect of rapid growth of population. The mass poverty of our country is due to the rapid growth of population. It is estimated that about 26% [1999-2000] of the people of India still live below the poverty line. They are ill fed, ill clothed and ill housed. Thus, mass poverty is due to rapid growth of population.
(ii) Unemployment and Under Employment:
Not only new born individuals are to be fed and sheltered but they are also to be provided with jobs. New jobs are to be created for new hands. It is not easy to create jobs. There is already unemployment coupled with under employment. Every year more than 5 million people who attain the working age join the group of job seekers.
Job opportunities that are created during the course of the Five Year Plans are not enough to meet the...
...AdverseEffects of Internet on Teenagers:
The use of internet has grown tremendously among the teenagers over the last few decades. This has largely been caused by a variety of reasons such as education and the need for entertainment. The internet provides a variety of free information and resources that can either build or destroy the life of a teenager. As a result, many teenagers have ended destroyed morally and psychologically due to excessive use of the internet for the wrong reasons. As a matter of fact, research shows that many teenagers get excessively addicted to the internet from the first time they gain access information in the web (Kraut & Kiesler, 49-74). The growing and excessive use of the internet among the teenagers has also largely been influenced by the affordability and availability of internet both at school and home. This continued use of internet by the teenagers has tremendously affected the teenagers adversely with time. To be precise, most teenagers who have excessively use internet have continued to have problems academically, socially and even morally.
Research indicates that in every ten teenagers, nine are regular internet users. According to statistics, 87% of the teenagers in the Western World aged between 12 and 17 are regular users of the internet. 51% of these teenagers visit the internet on regular basis. This actually represents about 21 million...
Asperger’s syndrome and the adverseeffects of stigmatization 2
The Center for Disease and Control estimates that, “1 in 88 children has been identified with Autism Spectrum Disorder” and shows a 78% increase since 2007 (CDC, 2012). However, many children with Asperger’s are often misdiagnosed with mental illness, such as bipolar disorder or ADHD. A man named Sean Honeysett was misdiagnosed for nearly two decades, was prescribed anti-psychotic drugs, and was in and out of institutions for several years, until his mother saw a show about Asperger’s on television. (BBC, 2000) Sean is now getting the proper care he should have received when he was a child. Since Asperger’s Syndrome is relatively new in the medical world, the cases of misdiagnosed children are mostly due to the lack of awareness of physicians and parents. In order to decrease the number of the misdiagnosed, increase the level of awareness and reduce the stigma and labeling of children with Asperger’s Syndrome, there needs to be a fuller understanding in today’s society of the syndrome and complete disclosure of the history, symptoms and treatment, with the purpose of providing the appropriate support that these children rightly deserve.

...done” (Henshaw). This shows how people are playing video games are an addition just like drugs and are distracting people from productive tasks such as volunteering, reading a good book, taking care of bills, writing an article, inventing something, or mowing the lawn. Instead, people want to get to the next level and finish the game. Furthermore, people are spending more time playing video games, then focusing on school and doing homework, and studying for tests. For instance, if a new Call of Duty comes out, many people will stay up until midnight at least playing instead of doing a project due the next day, but then be too tired to even start the project, which is influencing people’s futures as well. Next, video games are even having on effect on people’s relationships with a partner, or just a friend. The more amount of time that is spent playing video games, the less amount of time will be spent in engaging in a relationship. In other words, people are spending more time playing video games than maintaining a healthy relationship by talking and spending time with their special someone.
Another reason why I agree that violence in games contributes to delinquent behavior is because research shows that those who play these games are teenagers; therefore, they are in a phase of their lives in which they are still developing their personalities, as well as their ethics in regard to human behavior. Therefore, a person living through a time of life in which...
The AdverseEffects of Clinical Alarms: Alarm Fatigue

The AdverseEffects of Clinical Alarms: Alarm Fatigue
Technology has taken over the patient’s bedside. The sounds of ventilator alarms, cardiac monitors, and infusion pumps are only a few reverberations heard through the halls of any hospital. As we attempt to protect our patients by using sophisticated technology, device alarms place them in danger. Constant alarms sound in the hospital lead to staff desensitization, complacency, and distraction, which eventually can lead to ‘alarm fatigue’ (Tanner, 2013).
Alarm fatigue is prevalent in every hospital worldwide. The frequency of false alarms encourage staff to modify the device to reduce false or clinically insignificant alarm activation (Cvach, 2012), creating an opportunity for inattention, avoidance and potential for untoward patient events. This phenomenon can be referenced as “The Boy, who cried wolf” consequence (RN.com, 2013). The Joint Commission is so concerned about alarm fatigue and its relation to serious safety events that it has designated it a National Patient Safety Goals (Zhani, 2015). It is estimated that 85-99 percent of all alarms do not require clinical intervention (Wyatt, 2015). Minimizing clinical alarms, incorporating assessment skills, monitoring, and...
...How Education And Training Affect The Economy
February 25 2012| Filed Under » Economics, Post-Secondary Education, Young Investors
Why do most workers with college degrees earn so much more than those without? How does a nation's education system relate to its economic performance? Knowing how education and training interact with the economy can help you better understand why some workers, businesses and economies flourish, while others falter.

As the labor supply increases, more pressure is placed on the wage rate. If the demand for labor by employers does not keep up with the supply of labor, then the wage rate will be depressed. This is particularly harmful for employees working in industries that have low barriers to entry for new employees, i.e. they do not have high education or training requirements. Industries with higher requirements tend to pay workers higher wages, both because there is a smaller labor supply capable of operating in those industries and because the required education and training carries significant costs.
