The Effects of Technology on Learning, Memory, and Associations.

How does the advancement of technology influence developing children’s learning associations and information processing and what correlation does that have with future educational curriculums?


Today’s utilization of technological resources for education has caused changes in students’ brain functions and processes that effect long-term learning methods.


Before the Internet, encyclopedias, dictionaries, and textbooks were the main resources used for educational development and study. Today with the exponential growth in both the consumer and education technology sector, students and researchers alike are relying on the worldwide web and more specifically search engines for sources of information. With the unlimited amount of information the Internet and search engines provide and their ease of access, education is evolving to unprecedented levels. The rise of technological resources for both students and institutions has provided online distance learning and new-age education movements across the globe. The unlimited educational resources available on the Internet and other media are changing the way students learn.

Memory processing and learning associations in students are beginning to change for the present and future generations. Even though technology affects every age group’s brain processing and functioning, the learning functions in grade-school students are easier to identify. Especially today since elementary and even junior high school students continuously have technology-centered learning. College curriculums will also be sampled because of the abundant research attributed to university research.

Even though technology and unlimited Internet resources allow students to study more in a shorter period of time, challenges are arising in educational…...

Some of the issues in this characters role were judging, criticizing, controlling, prejudice, superiority and certainty. Interpersonal conflict can be handled a person must first be able to recognize the conflicts that they have. In this paper I will discuss identify the interpersonal conflict and how it was not handled effectively. This paper will also discuss ways the interpersonal conflict could have been handled differently. In the beginning he stops a motor vehicle because the occupants of the vehicle were African American this was stereotyping. John the cop was basically beginning stereotyping this lady. Stereotypes are often negative and reflect prejudices, preconceived opinions of dislike, hostility, or unjust behavior. Schemas, on the other hand, do not necessarily have negative connotations (Sole, 2011). He wanted to show that he had control over the African American couple that he had stopped. His hold motivate was to show the couple that he was superior to them and that he could do as he please to them. He made the husband......

...Poor Communication COM 200: Interpersonal Communication Poor Communication The article that we read this week was interesting and showed something that I have actually noticed before. I have seen and am guilty of myself of believing that I am closer and understand better certain people because of my personal relationships with them. There are certain key words or phrases that my wife and I will know and understand, but we misunderstand each other just as easily. The couples in this study seemed to have thought that their spouse would know exactly what they meant because, they are around them and speak to them on a daily basis. The very interesting part is that in fact they did not do better with their spouses than they did with strangers, and I wonder if that is because of how they said things rather than what they said. When I try to think back on if this has ever happened to me and if so how. I know for a fact that my wife and I have had moments of poor communication, and thought that we were on the same page and in fact were not. One of those moments were recently, my family was around and we were trying to be discreet in talking about our finances. We have little hint words or secret code names I guess you could say however, I thought we were talking about the code names and not our finances because in all honesty I wasn't paying complete attention since I thought we were on the same page. This is one of those times......

In this assignment we will compare results acquired from utilizing the Language Style Matching website to see if they are accurate, and also to find out if the beliefs regarding the quality of an interpersonal relationship are based on the quantity of language match. What got my attention was the one sentence, “If you just click with somebody but can’t put your finger on why, there’s a fair chance that high language-style matching is going on”. (Bower, 2010). My score for the site was .75, I met this friend of mine at work she is younger than I but for some reason we just clicked, why I do not know because we have totally different lives, but we did click and now she calls me mom. “ If one friend works in an office building and another in a rock quarry, the two will use different nouns and verbs to talk about their work days but similar function words if they like and understand each other” (Bower, 2010). The friend I was discussing works as an RN with a Master degree; she was a Clinical Director which was my boss.

It takes two strong people to put in the work to make the marriage become greater by the day.

...Interpersonal Communication within the Movie Hitch Leanne Almon COM200: Interpersonal Communication Professor Bonnie Stiemke November 5, 2014 Interpersonal Communication within the Movie Hitch We encounter interpersonal communication in our everyday lives. Even in the movies that we watch for entertainment, we can see conflicts within the communication between characters. In the movie Hitch, which stars Will Smith, as Hitch and Eva Mendes as Sara, there are several examples of conflict when it comes to interpersonal communication. The one conflict that was most prominent within the movie was when Sara found the man responsible for the heartbreak of her best friend. When Sara investigates the “Date Doctor” to find the man responsible for her best friend getting hurt as the result of a one night stand, she is enraged when she discovers that the man that she has been seeing and getting close to, is the same man as the “Date Doctor”. She can’t believe that the man that she has fallen in love with is the same man that is ultimately responsible for her best friend’s misery. As a result of this, Sara gives Hitch the cold shoulder. She avoids him at all costs, she doesn’t return his phone calls, and she will not talk to him at all. She refuses to hear his side of the story because she has no interest in hearing his side of the story. Her behavior is called the “demand-withdraw” pattern and is when one person tries to talk to the other and is dismissed or indifferent.......

...Interpersonal conversation 1 Recently I had a conversation with my ex-wife about our daughter via the telephone. I had found out that my daughter who is 14 and lives with my ex-wife in Rhode Island had gone out on a date with a 16 year old boy. I found this out on her facebook page. I was unhappy that she would let our daughter do this and that I had to find out this way. I called her and instantly you could tell from the tone of my voice that I was unhappy and I am sure she sensed it right away. I told her that I feel I have no say in my daughters life and how unsafe I thought the situation was. I was a 16 year old boy and I know first hand how many boys that age can be and this is my daughter we are talking about her safety is all that matters to me. However, my ex disagreed with this saying that I did not know the situation or the boy and that I was questioning her judgment. Needless to say we both said some words that were not kind to each other. Communicating with her through the phone is hard I don’t think she can see the concern in my face. She is only hearing the anger in my tone. I want them both to know that I care about my daughter a great deal and maybe they could allow me to have some say in how she is being raised even if they live in Rhode Island. It is a difficult situation for sure and one that I don’t know will ever be better unless I move closer to them. This is a hard task right now as I have had some health issues and also help to take......

...Hunter Davis-Interpersonal Communication Fight Club Fight Club, a 1999 American film, is a brilliantly constructed film of escaping reality and dealing with pain in the famous art form of fighting. Director David Flincher adapted the film from the 1996 novel. Main actors, Brad Pitt as Tyler Durden and Edward Norton as the narrator, act excellently as they deal with their reality by celebrating violence in underground fight clubs. The narrator becomes involved in a relationship triangle between Durden and a self-indulgent woman, Helena Bonham-Carter as Marla Singer. This Rated R action/drama film takes you on a psychological twist as you learn about how a soap maker and a white collar employee seek out freedom and restoration of masculinity. I would rate this movie 4 out of 5 brains because although it gets confusing, it makes you think and as long as you pay attention you will be able to grasp the concept. On top of making you think, I believe it has educational value, such as for a psychology or English class, it is great to pick apart and analyze many of its aspects. This is a film you’ll be talking and thinking about for days. Edward Norton plays an unnamed narrator who is an everyman and a chronic insomniac. With an unfulfilling white collar job, his only dream is to own all of the contents in an IKEA catalogue. To deal with his pain, he seeks 12-step meetings where he can find comfort in people less fortunate than him and find relief in their distress. These......

Interpersonal effectiveness is through devotion and dedication of oneself in practicing the skills of mindfulness, competence, emotional intelligence and ethical behaviors at every moment on each particular skill. It is ethical to be focused on one’s goal through management of time to realize interpersonal effectiveness (Johnson, 1972). Emotional intelligence being the ability to identify and managing the emotions of others and emotions of oneself is a major component of interpersonal effectiveness. It defines how firm you are to the set objective or goal that you are aiming. Usually characterized by expressing emotions, ability to control and to handle interpersonal relationships wisely and emphatically.

...I would like to focus my Research paper on the class topics that centered around Interpersonal Skills, as that is one of the areas I would like to improve on the most in my career development. Before getting into the breakdown of these topics, I will say that I hope to be the head of a major healthcare facility. Ideally this facility would be one that encompasses multiple branches, many divisions, and is inclusive of multiple levels of management and organization. While knowledge for completing these types of tasks can be acquired via school or personal research, one branch of implementation of one’s ideas of what direction to move forward with in your position is communicating these plans to your staff in a manner that is clear, effective, and gets everyone to buy-in in a positive demeanor as well. For these reasons, among other, I think the many aspects of interpersonal skills are what would serve me the best benefit in my own personal career development. Stemming from the description above, communication may be one of the most integral parts of holding an executive position. You can have all of the information and the best ideas in the world, but if you cannot communicate them to anyone else, especially your staff, then they will not be able serve their purpose. In today’s markets, this communication may or may not take place in person, as face-to-face interactions while not extinct, are in decline. As such, whether executives are speaking to individuals that they......

Interpersonal Comms

...Interpersonal communication, as defined in our textbook, is “a unique type of communication that involved two individuals interacting via face-to-face or mediated channels.” It seems that where there is communication, inevitably there will be conflict. Television dramas tend to add conflict in their storylines in an effort to make the viewers relate to the characters. In the television series Scandal, interpersonal communication conflicts are numerous. Oddly enough, the characters in this program are all in roles where communication is of immense importance and yet, none of them communicate very well at all. This may, indeed, be one of the main reasons for the success of this show. Watching television characters intertwined in personal conflict somehow make them more real to the audience. As a longtime fan of the show, choosing one single instance of interpersonal conflict was most difficult. However, I chose a conflict that has been ongoing since the show’s inception. The communication issues between Olivia Pope and Abby Whelan has developed, much in the way that their relationship has evolved. Both characters are strong and powerful women and, as it is with such personas, their communication tends to lack finesse. In episode 4 of the 5th season, aptly entitled “Dog-Whistle Politics,” Olivia and Abby finally have an epiphany with regards to their communication issues. Olivia opts to go public about an extramarital affair she has been having with the President. ......

...The Importance of Having Interpersonal Skills 23 April 2016 525 The Importance of Having Interpersonal Skills Interpersonal skills refer to an employee’s ability to get along with others while getting the job done. It includes everything from communication and listening skills to attitude and deportment. In the workplace of the 21st century, as it is more competitive and a fast-paced working environment, employers are mostly looking for candidates with skills that go beyond qualifications and experience. Getting the right people with the right skills and qualities helps them to fulfil the role and contribute to the organisation’s success. Education alone is not enough to secure a job even for degree holder because employees are needed to make critical decisions, solve problems and have an aptitude for teamwork. List of Interpersonal Skills Verbal Communication Clarity of speech is one of the main important factor. The tone and manner of speech provide clues to an individual’s mind which determines the character of the speaker. For example, when a person is calm and speaks fluently with positive accents, it shows that the speaker is confident and hence, able to attract the attention and convince the listener. Similarly, according to Myska (2014), “How employees interact with an employer’s customer or client base is key to a good reputation and repeat business” (p.6). Non-Verbal Communication It means being able to communicate through facial......

Interpersonal Conflict

...Interpersonal Conflict in Film The movie I chose to watch was Crash. This particular movie was full of a lot of stereotyping. It judged people a lot on their race. I had never seen this movie before so I found it interesting that it was so racist. There were many scenes that had interpersonal conflict in them. The one that stands out the most to me is when Sandra Bullock’s character got into an argument with her husband about wanting the locks changed again the next day; while there was a guy that she assumed was part of a gang was there changing the locks. She was stereotyping the guy that was changing the locks because he was Mexican. She assumed that he was part of a gang and was going to have copies of their house keys made and passed out to his buddies so they could come and rob them. Sandra Bullock’s character was very upset because she and her husband had just been held up at gunpoint and their vehicle stolen from them. Her husband was the district attorney of Los Angeles in this movie. Sandra Bullock’s character was upset with her husband for not showing concern over her feelings about wanting the locks changed again in the morning since they were currently being changed. He told her she was over reacting. She told him that she was scared because she had just been carjacked at gun point and she knew it was going to happen when she saw the black guys on the street. But he told her that she had a rough evening and that she just needed to go to bed......
