Computers up grade things that at times make things more efficiently ran, and at times cut down on the time it takes to do a project. It changes the way we do things and makes things easier to understand with some work fields that people are in today.

My major is Recreation Management. So it is basically and outdoor type of major that deals with things like forest, agriculture, animals, and the land in general. So from the classes I have this year I am learning that computers are vastly becoming a part of my major. We use things like Geo II Explorer, and the Garmin E-Trex. Those to are computer-based object that you need to up load and transfer your data to and from the computer. The Geo II Explorer with creates maps and plots the points of where you have been and how to get to one point to another.

Inclusive Education

...Inclusive education puts faith in a school system that is designed to cater to the requirements of a heterogeneous and diverse student body, to provide education that is accessible to all, while at the same time takes care to fulfill the special and individual needs of all its students. Inclusive education for persons with disability can be striven for through a structural re-organisation of the school based on the principle of integration rather than segregation. Some of the most basic steps which can be taken in this direction include special infrastructure to ensure a friendly physical and social environment that takes into view the physical and cognitive capabilities of all children; to provide for specialised and trained teachers equipped to deal with different kinds of disability; along with learning and teaching aids for children and teachers. It also requires one to think in terms of a curriculum which fosters a respect for difference and facilitates equitable student participation. This means that all acitivities, learning and play are planned keeping in view a diverse range of interests and abilities. Differences are then seen not as problems that need to be fixed but as an integral part of any learning and teaching environment. For effective integration, schools should provide for special classes with special educators that deal with the specific and individual needs or learning difficulties of students. To ensure that all students are emotionally well adjusted...

Pilot Episode of Parks and Recreation

...he episode opens with Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler), the deputy director of the Department of Parks and Recreation with six years of experience in the town of Pawnee, Indiana, discussing with a documentary crew her strong belief in the power of government to help other people. Later, Leslie hosts a community outreach public forum at an elementary school along with her jaded colleague Tom Haverford (Aziz Ansari). Leslie is enthusiastic despite the low turnout and angry complaints, which she describes as "people caring loudly at me". Local nurse Ann Perkins (Rashida Jones) complains about a giant pit near her house, which was dug out by a condominium developer that went bankrupt in the middle of the construction project. Ann says that her boyfriend Andy Dwyer (Chris Pratt) broke both his legs after falling into the pit, and she demands something be done about it. Leslie is inspired by the challenge and makes a "pinky promise" that she will fill in the pit and build a park on the land.[1][2] Leslie seeks advice from city planner Mark Brendanawicz (Paul Schneider), who feels the project would prove practically impossible due to the logistics and bureaucratic red tape, but Leslie is undeterred.[3][4] Leslie later fondly tells the documentary crew that she and Mark made love five years ago, but Mark only vaguely recalls the encounter.[5][6] Leslie, Tom and uninterested intern April Ludgate (Aubrey Plaza) visit Ann and meet Andy, a lazy and demanding musician whom she is forced to......

Recreation in Elders

...Throughout the years researchers have been studying ways to help the elder community, by developing programs to benefit the older generation in health related issues. The programs are forms of inclusive and therapeutic recreation. Therapeutic recreation (Bullock, Marhon and Selz, 1997) is defined as; “a purposeful intervention directed at the individual and his environment that aims to enhance health and impact functioning in many critical life domains.” Meaning that when looking at therapeutic recreation within the senior citizens is purposeful due to the change in body functioning. Programs can be developed to help the elderly stay active; some programs may be simply eating healthier foods or more advanced programs such as aerobic classes. The main ideas of these classes are to introduce programs that might expand their life span and improve physical capabilities. When dealing with the elderly, there are common changes that occur. Firstly, the body will not be in as good of shape compared to the past and secondly, experiences encountered may have an affect on your life, such as; friends passing away etc. Therefore, when dealing with elderly, the programs need to be created with these aspects in mind. Three main areas dealing with improvements are; Physical, Emotional, and Mental. When the body is changing you start to rely on others to help you with daily chores and activities. Sometimes, families are not willing to help those in need and go through the feeling of......

Making Excellence Inclusive in Education

...Making Excellence Inclusive In Education Student’s Name Institution Abstract This research paper is on cultural diversity and particularly intercultural maturity (Tierney, 2007). The point of discussion zeros into education practices that are being adopted to enhance intercultural maturity and intercultural competence in the current education systems (King & Baxter, 2005). This study also gives an overview of how to make the current education system excellent inclusive. Making education unique, inclusive addresses the adverse impacts on cultural diversity in the education sector (Kuh, 2008). In this research, I have also suggested areas for further research that need critical studies for the fulfillment of those research gaps. This paper is significant as it has identified key areas related to intercultural maturity that require rethink and further analysis. At the very end of my research, I have devised an action plan on how best to tackle and address those problems that are interconnected with intercultural maturity. This paper is of value as it dissects intercultural maturity; it enhances and builds a clear understanding of intercultural competence, excellence inclusive education and cross-cultural maturity. Furthermore, it will lead to the advancement of knowledge or perhaps the discovery of new knowledge as the research gaps are fulfilled (Alvesson & Sandberg, 2013).

Community Recreation

...Community and Recreation: Community Recreation Community The Merriam- Webster (2012) defines community as a unified body of individuals with common interests living in a particular area. A community is also a local grouping within which people carry out a full round of life activities. Although families or other groups can sometimes be relatively self-sufficient, most of them do not live in isolation. For many reasons, ranging from economic interdependence to shared cultural values, families and other groups normally join together to form communities. The community, rather than the family, becomes the social setting for most everyday economic, political, religious, educational, recreational and similar activities. As communities become larger and more complex, other types of organizations are often established within the community to perform these various functions. Thus, a community is a type of social organization that is territorially located and provides the setting for dealing with most of the needs and problems of daily living. Communities vary widely in size and complexity. Recreation McLean and Hurd., (2011) defines recreation as a network of public agencies that provide such facilities as parks, playgrounds, aquatic centers, sports fields, and community centers in thousand of cities, towns, and countries. Recreation is also defined as any activity performed during one’s leisure or free time. Recreation is very essential element of human......
