Computer’s History Erica Perdomo University System Ana G. Mendez Facilitator’s name: Maria C. Sevillano Del Rio EDUC 214 Workshop 1 Date: October 14, 2011

5 Introduction The history of computers is very interesting because as time passes, computers are updated more and more each time. Man throughout history has invented computers as a tool to meet all his needs. At first it was used to perform mathematical operations and calculations, and according to research provided by Blaise Pascal (1964), it indicated that the computers history started in 1642 with the invention of the mechanical calculator that was created by Frenchman Blaise Pascal (Rubio Quintanilla, Francisco, 2000). Therefore; in 1822 the first computer was invented and it was called the "Analytical Engine", this computer was invented by a mathematician named Charles Babbage. The creation of this unit arose due to the elaboration of the tables and the mathematical operations, and the main objective of this computer was to avoid the error prone while performing these tables (Rubio Quintanilla, Francisco, 2000). However; As the years passed new projects have emerged to innovate computers because of this fact in 1941 the first programmable computer was built, and it was invented by Konrad Zuse, followed in 1943 we have the creation of the first fully electronic computer which was created by the ENIAC. This computer was fully operational on a large scale and was completed in 1946; it took the name ENIAC which stands for Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer, which had the ability to operate at higher speeds (Rubio Quintanilla, Francisco, 2000). “Today, one of the most notable characteristics of a computer is the fact that its ability to be reprogrammed allows it to contribute to a wide variety of endeavors, such as the following completely unrelated fields: the creation of special effects for movies, the compression of music

6 to allow more minutes of music to fit within the limited memory of an MP3 player, the observation of car tire rotation to detect and prevent skids in an anti-lock braking system (ABS), the analysis of the writing style in Shakespeare's work with the goal of proving whether a single individual really was responsible for all these pieces”(John Kopplin, 2002).

After all, during the development of computer history many types of software have been created; this software’s have allowed computers to become indispensable tools for society. These software’s such as: Windows XP, Windows Vista, DOS, Windows 3, among others. All these programs have revolutionized the world of computers, underscoring the importance of this amazing invention. Thanks to constant innovation of software and hardware, today we have these wonderful machines that allow us to travel through the amazing world of technology and the Internet.


No doubt, computers are important elements in our society and while time continues to pass, this wonderful invention will continue to be innovated. Furthermore, computers are the complement for everything that we do in our daily life, because we use technology that helps us to make life easier. It is very impressive to know how this magnificent machine is changing our world. In today’s ever changing world the personal computer proves its efficiency day in and day out. For this reason, computers today are an essential devise not just an accessory

Effectiveness of Integrating Computers in Science Erica Perdomo University System Ana G. Mendez Facilitator’s name: Maria C. Sevillano Del Rio EDUC 214 Workshop 1 Date: October 21, 2011

9 Introduction The objective and effectiveness of integrating computers in the area of science is very beneficial for all kind of students in the education field. The ability to have access to different areas of science through a computer provides instant knowledge, skills and abilities. Now days students have the ability to learn about the environment and are able to become familiar with different worldwide challenges and benefits related to science. Computers are a fast and exact electronic machine that authorizes the processing of data. The word computer comes from the term “Computare” which means “calculate” (, 2008-2011). Through computers students can learn the benefits and challenges of science. Students can conduct researches that expand their horizons. Through computers you are able to learn about the world and about different subjects such as medicine, anatomy, animals, weather, and oceanography. Students can have the opportunity to explore nature and the different natural resources that exist around the world. Through computer science a person who is sick can learn about their condition through a computer and get the necessary treatment, but sometimes this can lead to a problematic outcome when people make a wrong decision and do not get professional help. The ability for students to learn anatomy through the computer is also important because they become familiar with how the body works and how it develops. Some students learn better using visuals and through a computer they are able to learn and explore about different animals and habitats. Students have the ability to discover the importance of saving animals from extinction. In fact, animals such as dinosaurs exist on Earth about 200 million years ago and are no longer around (Oard, Michael, 1997). Thankfully

10 although there are animals that no longer exist we can learn about them due to the data in computers. In conclusion there are many scientific elements that we can gain knowledge. The weather and oceanography are other aspects in which people in general can learn and be prepared for climate changes such as hurricanes, earthquakes, tornados, tsunami etc. This is a clear justification of the importance of integrating computers in the science area.

12 Reflective Journal Workshop 1 During workshop one, I felt very curious about everything that I was going to learn in the class. I imagined a class that would be a bit theoretical, but I wrong because I realized this is just the opposite. I honestly love the way the class is organized and structured. I think that technology and computers are two very important elements that today help us to do many things, not only personally but also professionally. On the other hand, I love the energy and positive attitude with which the teacher develops the class; I feel her energy motivates me to realize my goals with passion. I expect to learn many new things in this class, so I can enrich my knowledge and transmit it to other. Opinion about the informative link for workshop 1/Discussion board In summary of what I read in the link posted, I think that computers are very important for our society. While reading I realized that computers are made up of four parts that have different functions, such parties are: Input, Processing, Output and storage. Basically these four types of hardware allow a computer to run the right way. On the other hand, computers also use software and this is what allows us to perform any task. An example might be the software Microsoft Office program is now widely used in any situation. In conclusion, computers are composed of two major elements which are: hardware and software and these two works together to making the wonderful device that is the computer, which helps us carry out our work.

22 En la clase del viernes 21 de octubre aprendí muchas cosas acerca del programa de blackboard, este programa es excelente para realizar cualquier tipo de trabajos relacionados con las asignaciones e investigaciones que tenemos que presentar en las clases. Además, con este programa aprendí a crear un wikispace, de verdad yo no tenía ni idea de cómo se hacia este proyecto, pero con la asistencia y los consejos de mi maestra y mis compañeros tuve la oportunidad de aprenderlo. Este wikispace es de verdad interesante, en mi opinión es como crear tu propio programa, de verdad es muy impresionante ver como la tecnología te ayuda a aprender y te ensena muchas técnicas y opciones para realizar un trabajo profesional a nivel educacional. Por otra parte, también aprendí mucho sobre los diferentes tipos de Windows que existen y como estos programas han ido avanzando conforme el tiempo pasa, es notable el avance entre cada uno de estos Windows y como estos programas seguirán avanzando e innovándose cada vez mas. En definitiva me gusto mucho la clase; creo que a pesar de que no teníamos el acceso a internet esta clase fue muy productiva y aprendí muchas cosas importantes.

Output and Input Devices for the Handicapped Population


People with disabilities meet barriers of all types. However, technology is helping to lower many of these barriers. By using computing technology for tasks such as reading and writing documents, communicating with others, and searching for information on the Internet, students and employees with disabilities are capable of handling a wider range of activities independently.

29 In this class I learned a lot about all different types of devices that exist for people with disabilities, honestly I felt very well in class because I had the opportunity to clarify again my questions or concerns and also because they perform an activity in class helped me relax a little and learn how to create a memory game. This was a wonderful experience because I had never created a memory game, and I feel very content because these activities have the opportunity to create and experiment with new programs that will help us in our future as we will be good teachers. On the other hand, I think that with the integration of these activities can motivate our students to learn in different ways. Honestly, this class is very interesting and important to learn, memorize and apply everything we learn practice because with this knowledge we can educate others. In conclusion, what I like about the class was the video that the teacher showed us the end of the class, this video made us think and we really showed that there are programs that care for people with disabilities, and I realized that unfortunately sometimes they do not have all the resources needed to create a perfect program and to provide unlimited support to all people in need.


Essay Erica Perdomo University system Ana G. Mendez Facilitator’s name: Maria Sevillano EDUC 214 Workshop 4 Date: November 4, 2011

31 Introduction

There are many different types of communication that we use every day. Therefore, we can find two main parts of communication channels. One is verbal communication and the other is non verbal communication. We can categorize verbal communication into two parts, oral communication and written communication. Oral communication is when two or more person communicates verbally with words (Bizymoms, 1997).

In addition, the conversation can be short or long it depends on the topic discussed. Spoken conversation is of a short range and communicating through a telephone or voice chat over the internet. The other type is written communication. Written communication can happen through normal mail, e-mail, or any other form of documented writing. Normally we use this type of communication at work, school and at home.

However, there are other types of communication as well the non verbal communication, through this type of communication we can communicate with the body language. Sometimes we don’t need to say how we feel, we just tell everybody through the face. The face is the first thing we notice in a person and the facial muscles give out most of the human expressions. Pictures, sign boards and photographs are also a part of non-verbal communication.

On the other hand, we also have the formal and informal communication. The formal communication is when we are working and we have to write a memo, official letters, formal written document and office meetings. Normally this happens at work with the supervisor or boss. Another example of formal communication is when we are doing a presentation of a project at school or university.

32 Furthermore, informal communication is the opposite of the above; this is a type of casual conversation between friends, family, peers, etc. In this casual communication we don’t need to plan a topic for the conversation, it can be any topic. This type of communication usually happens at the supermarket, school, home, parties, park, church, gym, etc. In fact, now day’s computers are important tools that help us to communicate with everyone else. Through this wonderful machine we can send emails, have video chats with friends, write letters, memos, or official documents, etc. This great invention makes possible the opportunity to communicate with family and also can help us to meet new friends. Thanks to computers we can communicate with different peoples around the world.


In conclusion, communication is very important because through this we can communicate with others. I think it's a clear way to understand and to express to each other and through effective communication can be able to solve any problem or situation presented to us in our lives. On the other hand, Communication is essential as we say what we think and feel, and we must be grateful to God for this beautiful gift as part of our development as individuals in society.

35 En la clase del viernes pasado me sentí muy bien ya que fue una clase que me permitió aprender nuevas palabras y nuevos programas que me ayudaran en mi futuro. En esta clase tuvimos la oportunidad de realizar una actividad en grupo, la cual fue una experiencia verdaderamente especial, ya que pude aprender de una nueva herramienta escolar tal como lo es el Prezi, con este programa podemos resumir en palabras claves lo que queremos decir en un tema complejo. Este programa es parecido a un mapa conceptual que nos ayuda a memorizar mejor y a organizar nuestras ideas. En otras palabras, esta clase fue muy interesante porque a través de esta actividad tuve la oportunidad de desarrollar mi creatividad, paciencia, pensamiento crítico, dedicación y el interés por hacer bien las cosas al momento de realizar una actividad en grupo. Este tipo de programas me ayudaran en mi vida profesional y personal, ya que los puedo aplicar en mi trabajo y en mi futuro educativo. Finalmente, esta asignatura fue muy intensa y al mismo tiempo fue muy importante, ya que aprendí muchos programas que nunca había oído mencionar, de verdad me quede muy asombrada de lo que podemos hacer con la tecnología. Muchas gracias profesora Sevillano, gracias por todo su arduo esfuerzo y dedicación y sobre todo por su inmensa paciencia hacia nosotros. Fue un placer haber tenido la oportunidad de aprender con su ayuda.

36 Integrating Computers in Language Area

By Erica Perdomo

Training to the school Faculty Submitted to Ana G. Mendez University System In Partial Fulfillment of the Requirements for EDUC 214

South Florida Campus November 9, 2011 Integrating Computer’s in Language Area.

37 The integration of computers in Language class help the teachers to improve the learning process; and to be able to prepare the students to use the computers and gain knowledge through activities that help them to learn another language. The objectives of this training are the followings:  Define sounds in specific area and using computers.  Identify individual phonemes (sounds in words) with digital lessons.  Define curriculum in language arts and integrating new technology.  Explain changing in instructional strategies. Population to be addressed: this training is addressed for the faculty of language class in second grade, focusing to improve the academic skills of the students. These projects have several goals, and some of these goals are the following:  The teachers are able to develop skills through technology.  The teachers can use technology to the academic development of students.  The students can improve their language with the guidance of the teacher through the computers. Activities: The activities are very important because it develop sensor motor and cognitive skills of students. Some of these activities are:  Use the Vocabulary as a tool to improve the students learning.  Think and reading aloud to recognize sounds to better memorize.  Another activity can be the audio and visual (music, videos and films) that help the students to better understanding.

38 ďƒ˜ The role play and modeling that help the student to improve their learning through experiences and repetition; and the last activity can be the laboratory hours that help the students to create a schedule and they can practice frequently. Assessments: Formative Evaluation: The function of this evaluation is to obtain information about the status of each student's learning, and from this, make decisions that help improve the development of this process. The information that casts such an assessment, however, is not only useful for the teacher, but must be delivered to the students so they too can take charge of their own learning process.

Feedbacks: Providing the right kind of feedback to students can make a significant difference in their achievement. There are two key considerations. First, feedback that improves learning is responsive to specific aspects of student work, such as test or homework answers, and provides specific and related suggestions. There needs to be a strong link between the teacher comment and the student's answer, and it must be instructive. This kind of feedback extends the opportunity to teach by alleviating misunderstanding and reinforcing learning. Second, the feedback must be timely. If students receive feedback no more than a day after a test or homework assignment has been turned in, it will increase the window of opportunity for learning. Feedback is a research-based strategy that teachers, and students, can practice to improve their success.

45 Contestar las siguientes preguntas: 1. Que puede hacer un educador con las computadoras? Un educador tiene el beneficio de realizar muchas actividades con las computadoras. Algunas de estas pueden ser las siguientes; los educadores pueden administrar sus clases utilizando registros electrónicos y base de datos. Por otra parte, también pueden automatizar la creación de cartas y documentos de carácter administrativo, además con el uso de las computadoras pueden darles acceso a experiencias de aprendizaje a sus estudiantes con necesidades especiales o también pueden tener una comunicación o interacción con los estudiantes por medio de las computadoras. 2. Consideraciones antes de usar computadoras en el salón de clases? Una de las consideraciones que se deben tomar en cuenta al momento de integrar las computadoras al salón de clases son: En primer, debemos tener un ambiente adecuado en el salón de clases para la instalación de estas maquinas, seguido tenemos que tomar en cuenta las habilidades del maestro y el entusiasmo de los estudiantes y la calidad de los programas a ser utilizados para garantizar el aprendizaje. Sin embargo no se debe esperar obtener de inmediato resultados extraordinarios en el manejo que le dan los estudiantes a las computadoras, ya que ellos también se están adaptando a esta nueva tecnología. Y por último, se deben determinar metas y objetivos medibles previos a la selección de la tecnología y asegurarnos que esta tecnología sirva a esas metas. 3. Son realmente esenciales las computadoras en la enseñanza? Si, las computadoras son esenciales ya que se pueden utilizarse para apoyar las estrategias de aprendizaje constructivistas, además podemos crear módulos que lleven al estudiante a desarrollar destrezas y habilidades en la resolución de un problema que tendra como

46 resultado el aprendizaje por medio del descubrimiento y el razonamiento critico. Por otra parte, las computadoras también pueden ser herramientas en las modalidades de educación individualizada, aprendizaje en grupo, aprendizaje en línea y educación a distancia. 4. Menciona una aplicación de programa para aplicarlo en el currículo? La aplicación de programa llamado “Web 2.0:Cool Tools for Schools” es muy bueno porque este programa ayuda al educador a utilizar muchas herramientas tales como video, música, mapas, imágenes, herramientas para dibujar, para hacer búsquedas, para estimular la creatividad y lograr la elaboración de diferentes actividades en el salón de clases. Además con la integración de esta aplicación podemos lograr que los niños con necesidades especiales puedan integrarse por medio de la inclusión al salón de clases. Estas herramientas motivan a los estudiantes a compartir, a ser independientes, a trabajar en equipo y a comunicarse con los demás de una manera efectiva. Por lo tanto, es muy importante integrar esta aplicación en el currículo educativo para lograr un mejor rendimiento académico en los estudiantes. 5. Menciona cinco referencias y lecturas recomendadas sobre el tema de clase “Computadoras en la Educación”. Las siguientes son páginas electrónicas que tienen valiosa información sobre el tema de las computadoras en la educación:

47 Todas estas páginas electrónicas y lecturas hablan de la importancia de integrar las computadoras en el salón de clases y de los beneficios que se logran con la utilización de estos programas en la educación de los estudiantes. Por otra parte, estas páginas electrónicas también hablan de cómo la tecnología ayuda a los estudiantes a que aprendan de una manera práctica y fácil con la integración de programas y la resolución de problemas utilizando el razonamiento y el descubrimiento; y con esto aprender por medio de las experiencias obtenidas.

End-of-Course Assessment Now that you have finished your course, write a short journal reflection about your experiences. Thank you 1. What I did in this course? (write what you did in this course) I did a lot of new projects that was very interesting to learn and to develop. I learned a lot about different programs such as Animoto, Prezi, Worldle, Voky and Issu. All these programs taught me to do homework and learn new technology.

2. What I enjoyed? (write about what you liked most about this course) What I like about this course was to work with the program called Voky, because this program helped me to develop my creativity when I was creating my own character, I really thought it was hilarious.

3. What I found difficult? (write about any area of this course you found hard to do) What I found very difficult was the program Prezi, because I can’t put my words in the little circle that they have. But finally I figured out how to do it.

4. What really worked? (write about any area that you though worked well) I think that what really works for me was the JING project. I love it! I enjoyed work with this program.

5. Strength and weakness (write what you would do differently in this course, strength in this course and weakness in this course) I think that everything was ok but the only weakness that I found in this course was the time. This class is very interesting and I think that 5 weeks is not enough to develop it.

6. What are your recommendations to this course? Are improvements needed? I don’t think that this course needs improvements but I think that the university should put this class on a different day, so the internet works much better.

50 7. Your final thoughts... I learn a lot‌ thanks to the teacher Maria Sevillano. It was a pleasure to be your student.


52 Conclusión En esta clase aprendí muchos conceptos e información interesante acerca de la tecnología y la integración de las computadoras en la educación, en mi opinión personal creo que fue una clase muy buena y practica. Me gusto mucho poder aprender cómo usar el blackboard de la universidad para opinar, en realidad no sabía de ese programa hasta que lo pude utilizar en esta clase. Esta clase tuve la oportunidad de conocer programas en la educación que no conocía, como los programas Voki, Animoto, Worldle, Jing e Issu que me ayudaron a ser más creativa y eficiente al momento de realizar un trabajo. Muchas gracias profesora por hacer de esta clase una clase interesante e inolvidable.
