Teacher Survival Skills Video Summary Anyone’s first year of teaching is going to be tough as they try to get into the rhythm of everyday life in the classroom. To help make things easier there are five survival skills that are sure to keep you on the right track. The first skill is to get organized. Not only do you need to be organized in the classroom, but in your personal life as well. Each morning make a list of everything that you want to accomplish for that day, and check them off as you finish each goal. Before you leave for the day make sure that everything is prepared for the next day. That way you can take the time in the morning to talk with your co-workers and students instead of having to rush in to get everything set up. Being well organized will help with time management, and keep you from getting very tired every day. The second skill for surviving your first year of teaching is to manage your classroom. You should have a few firm rules already set up for the first week of school. In that first week make sure the students know of the rules, and that you intend to stand firm with those rules. It is okay to remind the students every once in a while, but remember that you are the captain of your classroom. The third skill is to be consistent. You are going to have children in your classroom that are coming from very rough backgrounds and home life. You do not want your students to walk in everyday and wonder what mood you are in, or how they should react towards you. Your classroom needs to be a safe place for every single student in the class. Fourthly on our skills list is to get to know your students. The more you know each student, the more they are going to want to learn from you. Make connections with their interests during lessons to keep them engaged and wanting to learn more. It will take time, but learning each student will benefit you…...

...Chapter One – Introduction The role of a teacher is of great importance not only in his/her classroom but in society in general. He/She is responsible to communicate and transfer to the next generation the intellectual traditions and technical skills of his/her generation. In doing so, the teacher ensures the survival of man and its civilisation. In fact, the teacher is the key to quality education, through his training and dedication. He/She is often perceived as the adoptive parent of the child and normally, the latter looks to his teacher not only for knowledge but also for wisdom and moral and ethical values. The functions of a teacher in the classroom are numerous to ensure the correct development of his/her students. Among these functions are * To ensure students are having the proper education in a safe environment * To ensure teaching and especially learning is efficient * To increase the students’ self-esteem and personal confidence * To prepare students with the necessary knowledge, character and skills for higher education and to live in society In order to successfully achieve the above-mentioned functions, a teacher needs to act as a manager in his/her classroom. In other words, the teacher should possess some important managerial skills. A manager is normally defined as someone who is in charge of his/her organisation and is responsible for the proper functioning the organising in every aspect.

The USMT is found on a domain; you can also use a tool called Files and Settings Transfer Wizard—both of these applications are found in the system tools directory. These tools make using your new computer much like your previous computer with less pain. This helps the company/department become more efficient and would in effect be less downtime and thus less painful than the old way. Topics— * User State Migration Tool (USMT) * Files and Settings Transfer Wizard Terms— * User State Migration Tool (USMT) * Is a Microsoft command line utility program intended to allow advanced users, comfortable with Scripting language, to transfer files and settings between PCs. This task is also performed by Windows Easy Transfer, recommended for general users. * Files and Settings Transfer Wizard * Is a file transfer and backup program which allows backing up or transferring user files and settings between computers.

...Clip 1 Summary: There are three types of ports, serial, parallel, and game ports, and they have for the most part been replaced with USB ports. USB devices are hot swappable, can daisy chain, and 127 devices may be plugged into the computer USB ports. Modern mice and keyboards use PS/2 technology unlike older predated mice and keyboards, which used serial connectors, and a 5-pin bulky din connector. The network interface card is responsible for connecting your computer to your local network, a distant network, or to the internet. The dial-up modem is the slowest possible method of connecting to the internet, and it connects to the phone line; the standard speed for a modem is 56Kbps. Modern computers come with two types of video ports VGA and DVI, in addition may also have an S-Video port you may connect to the TV. SCSI connectors come with a variety of sizes, but the most common are the 50 pin connector for the A-type narrow SCSI cable, and the 68-pin connector for the p-type wide SCSI cable. IEEE 1394 also known as fire wire uses serial communication, it is very fast, hot swappable, and is especially useful when transmitting streaming media.

...1.05-Central Processing Unit (CPU) Video Summary #3_NT1110_Computer Structure and Logic April 17, 2014 Abstract In the video “1.05- CPU” I learned that there are two major manufacturers of CPU and they are Intel and AMD. CPU’s are organized by the motherboard system bus carries information into and out of the CPU. In the system bus the CPU is referred to as the Front side bus and usually uses a 64-bit wide data path. Inside the CPU there are controllers that manage basic functions of the CPU and control communication between the motherboard and other components within the CPU. The other components include one or more ALUs and the internal cache. An ALU is responsible for complex calculations. Communication between the controller and the ALUs uses a 32-bit internal bus. The bus system that supports the communication between the cache and the ALUs controller is the backside bus. The CPU speed is measured in GHz. There are several ways of measuring speed. The speeds differ inside and outside the processor. System bus speed is measure in MHz . The system bus speed is the actual factor that will control the speed of your computer. The ratio between processor and system bus is known as the multiplier. In older setting you may have to configure the multiplier in the CMOS setting. Multiprocessing is the ability to perform multiple functions simultaneously. True Multiprocessing requires multiple processors. Dual Core processors is another way of multiprocessing. Cache uses......

Video Summary

...Video 1.07 talked about different ports and connections on a computer motherboard or integrated card. Serial ports are male and have 9 to 25 connector pins. Parallel ports are female and have 25 connector pins. Serial connections send information one bit at a time while parallel connections send information 8 bits at a time. Game ports are female and contain 15 pins in 2 rows. Modern mouse and keyboard connections are PS/2, USB, or wireless. NIC connections convert parallel communication to serial and use an RJ-45 connector. A modem connection uses an RJ-11 connector and converts analog signals to digital signal and back. There are three types of video connections: VGA, DVI, and S-video. USB, or Universal Serial Bus, is hot-swappable, which means you can plug it into the computer while it is running and it will automatically configure without having to reboot. There are two types of SCSI connections: Narrow SCSI which is Type A with 50 pins, and Wide SCSI, which is Type P with 68 pins. IEEE 1394 or Firewire is Serial, fast, hot-swappable, and is used for streaming media. Last there is Multimedia which consists of your microphone, speaker, and earphone jacks.

...Unit 3 Assignment 1: Video Summary 1 2) Video one talks mostly about ports and the different kinds of ports that are used in computers today. It also covers what a modem is, its uses, and its speed. Video one teaches us what the difference of a wide SCSI and a narrow SCSI. The video shows all the different ports with all their pins and tells us whether they are male or female. One thing I have definitely learned from this video is what USB stands for and what it actually is. I also learned the difference between USB 1 and USB 2. Video two had a lot to do with computer displays and the different types of screens. In video two I learned the difference between a CRT display and a LCD display, it also talks about what is in both of them. It then goes into the contrast ratio and how the bigger the ratio, the better the video or the display is going to be. I always saw resolutions in my computer but I never knew what they stood for. I now know the standard resolutions and how they work. The video also talks about the video card and if you were building a computer how to know which video card would be worth buying. Video 3 goes into depth about printers and the three most common printers today. It talks about the differences between Dot Matrix, Inkjet, and Laser printers. Since Laser printers are very different from the other two, it went into further depth of the laser printer. The video teaches us multiple ways of how a laser printer can be cleaned. It also tells us......

Teacher Survival Skills

...walking all day, working all night long, and repeating it all over again. There are at least five skills that can help us through the first year of teaching: 1. Getting Organized. Organization is a key essential for every person, in their personal life and in the work area. Reaching your classroom and not being well-organized could cause more work than really we already have, apart from physical exhaustion, I dare to add mental exhaustion. We must begin to create a good habit of organization, being prepared in advance. The night before or before you go home would be a great time to leave everything ready. Nobody said that it would be easy, but with much practice every day can be made perfect. If you need help on how to get organized, look for books or videos; mentors are always willing to help. You can make a list of the things you will do through the day. Prepare today. 2. Managing Your Classroom. We must have strategies of how to handle the class very well. If the student does not understand the class, we will have problems on focus and distraction. Search for any activities that increases the interest of the student. Remember that we have the control of what happens inside of the classroom. Establish rules, either three or four of them that they can memorize. Always address the rules, and keep practicing. 3. Being Consistent.The student is just as anxious as the teacher on the first day of class. The text should come well prepared, and have everything well organized......
