Are robots better than human teachers?

Robots may be able to answer more questions, but it takes human teachers to connect with the students. If the sudent is having a bad day, the robot wont recognize that, nor will it know to go out of its way to help the student sort out fixing grades or life situations. I for one love the kids that I work with and appreciate them for the individuals that they are. A robot wont identify with them nor know to give positive reinforcement.

The Difference Between

What is the difference between a college minor and major?

You can not just enroll in a minor. You must be first enrolled in a major and then you can add on a minor. The minor is usually just extra set of courses you are required to take in that area.

College Major - A major is the main field that you want to specialize in while you are still an undergraduate at a college. ( A lot of units in college will be devoted into your major because that's going to be your career choice in life, that's why you are studying it.)

College Minor - A minor is a secondary field that you want to specialize in while you are working on your major. Generally, your major is what your intended career is, but your minor is something you pursue because of your personal interests.

For example: If I want to major in Education to teach primary schools (Which is elementary schools) then that would be my major for college. But, lets say that I love doing education, but I also love going to church to do ministries to help people out, then I can do ministries by making it a minor. Thus, my major is Education and my minor is Ministries. By doing this, you have more flexibility in what you want to do and it just gives you more options to work with because when you graduate college, it proves to others that you can do education and ministries because you put your time and efforts into it.

I need help finding a major in college?

The best course to study is the one that leads to your overall career goals and objectives. Thus, I would imagine you do not have anything specific at this time. So many individuals enroll in college programs without a specific goal in mind. As such, many become miserable in their work which is not good for them, or their employer. If you want to be successful in your work and personal life, carefully consider the following.

To be successful in your work, you must acquire a vision. A vision is a clearly articulated picture of the future you intend to create for yourself. In other words, it's a dream. However, if the dream does not have direction, it will always remain a dream and will never become a reality for you. That vision should create a passion within you, a love for what you do and the benefit it brings others as well as yourself. Make sure the vision is specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and tangible. Let us look at this closer. When you believe you have chosen an appropriate career goal, look at it in SMART fashion as follows.

  • Specific - Make sure your career goal is very specific. For example, "I would like to be a teacher," is not specific. "I would like to be a high school biology teacher in New Jersey (USA) in an urban school by 2012" is.
  • Measurable - Make sure you can measure your progress. How will I know I am progressing in the right direction? This is where the development of short-term objectives comes in (discussed below). You will know you are on the right path as you accomplish each short -term objective.
  • Achievable - Is the goal achievable considering my current life situation and circumstances?
  • Realistic - Is what I want to do really realistic. For example, "I would like to be a middle weight boxing champion, and I am 63 years old." That is not realistic.
  • Tangible - What will I - specifically - have at the end? What will I be (exactly)? It must be very specific.

Once you have that vision your path will become clear. Still, you will need a mentor, counselor, or coach who will be able to help you develop a road map embedded with short term objectives leading to your overall career overall goals and objectives. The achievement of short-term objectives will indicate you are moving in the correct direction, and will also give you energy and excitement to carry on towards your overall career goal. It will take some research, but you most likely have some ideas already. Follow them through, look at the nature of the field, the everyday routine, the required education, the salary, the occupational demand and the related fields. When a career sparks an interest, try to shadow an individual who is actually doing what you think you might like to do. You can pick up valuable information this way. Thus, the following.

  • Acquire the will to change circumstances.
  • Acquire the vision (dream).
  • Develop a road-map embedded with short-term objectives leading to your overall goal and objective.
  • Just do it and do not let go until it becomes a reality.

Which is better icse or igcse?

What I've heard is that IGCSE syllabus includes teaching hands on. The 3-hour exam is split into two 1 1/2 hour exams. The method of teaching is more application oriented. The syllabus is oriented to improve mental/thinking/creative abilities of students whereas ICSE and CBSE have more of a theoretical approach. The only problem is that it's very difficult to see, before putting your kids in a specific school, if such school is equipped with such qualified teachers. Nowadays many schools are starting to offer IGCSE whether or not they have proper infrastructure available, mostly because there is more inflow of funds in the form of tuition fee.

IGCSE syllabus targets students to apply for universities in western countries after 12th grade. The issue with IGCSE is that the final exams are in May and their results are declared in August. This is cumbersome since most competitive exams for State Engineering/Medical colleges, IITs, and BITS take place in May. Therefore, kids who have taken IGCSE won't be able to take such competitive exams and won't be able to secure merit seats. For them, the only option would be to pay donation and join colleges under management quota if they decide to stay in India.

Unless the system assures the students somehow to be able to apply for/secure merit seats in Indian undergraduate colleges, it's not pragmatic for students to take up IGCSE.


However, more recently(2014), IGCSE has introduced an additional March exam schedule for India (in addition to regular October and May schedules). Check with affiliated schools if they allow students to take exams in March.

What is the unique features of ubuntu?

1) Speed

2) Stability (in some cases). The Linux kernel is very stable (much more than the Windows kernel is). The apps built on top of that are not always as stable as Mac/Windows apps

3) Open Source (this should really be #1). Proprietary code and proprietary standards suck, because nobody can use them to build more powerful things. Companies like Microsoft try and build monopolies by not releasing their source code, which is good in some ways (but mostly bad)

4) Uniqueness of Ubuntu over other distros of Linux? Ubuntu is just a set of open source packages with some nice features on top, which makes the OS feel more polished. Ubuntu Software Center, Synaptic, the look and feel / themes, and many more things

What should your college major be to become any kind of doctor or physician?


First, there is no such thing as a degree in pre-med. It is a curriculum layout or sometimes known as a track, that prepares students who intend to seek admission to medical schools. It includes activities such as prerequisite coursework, clinical experience, volunteer activities, and research.

While many individuals who pursue a career as a physician major in biology at the undergraduate level, many others come from a variety of other educational backgrounds. You should meet with a career counselor at the college or university you attend for what options exist for you. The important issue is preparing for the appropriate prerequisites required for medical school. The student should have a strong background in the following areas.

  • Biology (cell biology, biology of the organism)
  • Chemistry (inorganic, organic)
  • Physics
  • Communication (written and oral)
  • Higher level math's
  • Computer literacy
  • Development of good critical thinking skills.

The following is from the U.S. Department of Labor. Read the following carefully, and follow through on the link provided for detailed information according to the U.S. Department of Labor. After reading the below, click on the related links section (U.S. Department of Labor) indicated below this answer box for more detailed information.

The common path to practicing as a physician requires 8 years of education beyond high school and 3 to 8 additional years of internship and residency. All States, the District of Columbia, and U.S. territories license physicians.

Education and training. Formal education and training requirements for physicians are among the most demanding of any occupation-4 years of undergraduate school, 4 years of medical school, and 3 to 8 years of internship and residency, depending on the specialty selected. A few medical schools offer combined undergraduate and medical school programs that last 6 years rather than the customary 8 years.

Premedical students must complete undergraduate work in physics, biology, mathematics, English, and inorganic and organic chemistry. Students also take courses in the humanities and the social sciences. Some students volunteer at local hospitals or clinics to gain practical experience in the health professions.

The minimum educational requirement for entry into medical school is 3 years of college; most applicants, however, have at least a bachelor's degree, and many have advanced degrees. There are 146 medical schools in the United States-126 teach allopathic medicine and award a Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) degree; 20 teach osteopathic medicine and award the Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (D.O.) degree.

Acceptance to medical school is highly competitive. Applicants must submit transcripts, scores from the Medical College Admission Test, and letters of recommendation. Schools also consider an applicant's character, personality, leadership qualities, and participation in extracurricular activities. Most schools require an interview with members of the admissions committee.

Students spend most of the first 2 years of medical school in laboratories and classrooms, taking courses such as anatomy, biochemistry, physiology, pharmacology, psychology, microbiology, pathology, medical ethics, and laws governing medicine. They also learn to take medical histories, examine patients, and diagnose illnesses. During their last 2 years, students work with patients under the supervision of experienced physicians in hospitals and clinics, learning acute, chronic, preventive, and rehabilitative care. Through rotations in internal medicine, family practice, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, psychiatry, and surgery, they gain experience in the diagnosis and treatment of illness.

Following medical school, almost all M.D.s enter a residency-graduate medical education in a specialty that takes the form of paid on-the-job training, usually in a hospital. Most D.O.s serve a 12-month rotating internship after graduation and before entering a residency, which may last 2 to 6 years.

A physician's training is costly. According to the Association of American Medical Colleges, in 2004 more than 80 percent of medical school graduates were in debt for educational expenses.

Licensure and certification. All States, the District of Columbia, and U.S. territories license physicians. To be licensed, physicians must graduate from an accredited medical school, pass a licensing examination, and complete 1 to 7 years of graduate medical education. Although physicians licensed in one State usually can get a license to practice in another without further examination, some States limit reciprocity. Graduates of foreign medical schools generally can qualify for licensure after passing an examination and completing a U.S. residency.

M.D.s and D.O.s seeking board certification in a specialty may spend up to 7 years in residency training, depending on the specialty. A final examination immediately after residency or after 1 or 2 years of practice also is necessary for certification by a member board of the American Board of Medical Specialists (ABMS) or the American Osteopathic Association (AOA). The ABMS represents 24 boards related to medical specialties ranging from allergy and immunology to urology. The AOA has approved 18 specialty boards, ranging from anesthesiology to surgery. For certification in a subspecialty, physicians usually need another 1 to 2 years of residency.

Other qualifications. People who wish to become physicians must have a desire to serve patients, be self-motivated, and be able to survive the pressures and long hours of medical education and practice. Physicians also must have a good bedside manner, emotional stability, and the ability to make decisions in emergencies. Prospective physicians must be willing to study throughout their career to keep up with medical advances.

Advancement. Some physicians and surgeons advance by gaining expertise in specialties and subspecialties and by developing a reputation for excellence among their peers and patients. Many physicians and surgeons start their own practice or join a group practice. Others teach residents and other new doctors, and some advance to supervisory and managerial roles in hospitals, clinics, and other settings.

What are the stages of early childhood development?

According to Piaget's account there are 4 stages of development:

Sensorimotor Period (0-2 years)

In this stage, children start to exercise reflexes, and primary and secondary circular reactions start to appear. Also, between 12-18 months, the child's focus will be attracted towards the relationship between the child and other objects. By the end of this stage the child should be using symbols.

Preoperational Period (2-7 years)

Children in preschool and early elementary school are placed in this period. These children are characterized by egocentrism and centration, meaning that they focus on just one aspect of a problem.

Concrete Operational Period (7-11 years)

Children in this period are characterize by the appropriate use of logic.

Formal Operational Period (11+ years)

Both adolescence and adulthood belong to this stage. Here individuals can think abstractly and make conclusions base on the information available.
