Forum 1: Nature vs Nurture (initial post due by Wednesday, January 24; responses due by Sunday, January 28) – This assignment centers on analyzing and discussing the differences between theorists who focused on either “nature” or “nurture” in their research and comparing and contrasting their theories in terms of their strengths and weaknesses.

There are several theorists mentioned in Chapter 1 of your text. Choose one (1) ‘nature’ based theorist and one (1) ‘nurture’ based theorist and compare and contrast their theories. Which theorist had the “better” explanation, in your opinion? Why?

NOTE: Your response must be written in your own words; however you MUST use information from the text and/or other sources to support your response. If using the text, the page number(s) MUST be cited, and if using other sources, the link(s), page numbers, etc MUST be cited.

Here are some examples of theorists from the Chapter to choose from: Sigmund Freud, Erik Erikson, John B. Watson, B.F. Skinner, Albert Bandura, Jean Piaget, Information Processing theorists (no name(s) needed for this one), Cognitive Neuroscience theorists (no name(s) needed for this one), Carl Rogers, Abraham Maslow, Urie Bronfenbrenner, Lev Vygotsky, Charles Darwin, and Konrad Lorenz.

This analysis must be 150-200 words (NO MORE THAN 200 WORDS!)

Class 4 w2 Assignment in
Games in the Classroom
Recall that one of the major benefits of using technology in the classroom is the ability to differentiate instruction to meet the needs of every student in every lesson. Just as each student grows and develops at different rates, research tells us that students also learn in different ways. Jane McGonagall is an expert at differentiation through the use of games, which is sometimes described as a form of gamification. As featured in her engaging TED Talk (2010), Gaming can make a better world (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.;  she discusses gamification in classroom contexts.

Class 4 w2 Discussion
This discussion provides an opportunity to evaluate a variety of digital and assistive technologies for supporting diverse learners. Based on the required readings from Housand & Housand (2012), McCombs (2000), and Page (2002), you know that research shows that effective technology integration can support student motivation, engagement, and interest in learning. Furthermore, research has shown that through thoughtful integration of audio, video, and other media, instruction can be differentiated, ultimately increasing a student’s motivation to learn. To explore this research, in this discussion you will analyze how technology integration can be used as a method of intervention to meet the needs of diverse learners. To prepare for this discussion, review the Week Two Instructor Guidance and the Required Resources for the week. Next, access either The Teaching Channel (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. or Edutopia (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. and conduct a search using the key words “using technology for learning motivation” or similar. Select one video that can inform your response to the discussion points below. If for some reason you are unable to support your response to this discussion using the video option, please contact your instructor for an alternative way to complete this discussion.
Initial Post: Respond with an initial post that includes the following components:
Provide a link to the video you viewed and a succinct description of the video’s focus, such as the grade and/or ability-levels of students, the educator(s) involved, and the subject being taught (e.g., science or language arts).
In at least one paragraph, describe how the technology is being used in the video and describe what you observed in the video that informs you that students’ motivation is increased or otherwise supported due to the use of the technology.
Next, succinctly describe how the use of the technology promotes students’ engagement during the learning process.
Finally, describe the extent to which the use of technology and its motivating factors outweighs the potential challenges the educator might face in acquiring the technology and learning how to effectively implement it.
