Using the theories and perspectives on cultural competency and drawing from your field placement experience complete the following:
Create and submit a written script of your video discussion. You must type out your comments verbatim. The goal is to show organization of thought prior to recording your video post. Use APA style citations to reference readings discussed in your video discussion. These references can be from both the assigned readings and outside sources. Record approximately a 3-5 minute video that addresses the following: What strategies will you use to intentionally prepare for culturally competent practice with Hispanic children and families? If you have limited access to Hispanic clients: it will be important to draw from scholarly research? How will you identify and engage with community leaders and informants who possess critical relationships with Hispanic children and families?
Some technological inventions have affected our life greatly for the past decades, especially computers. It’s true that computers really provide us more convenient life. With computers, we can deal with many documents even faster, we can use computer to control machines to work, and we can also buy what we want through the Internet on computers. Nevertheless, computers also brought some bad effects to our life; here are some examples of the bad effects that computers have brought to us. One of the bad effects is the impact for art. There are more people tend to create art works by computers, for, those created by computers are neat and tidy. In my opinion, however, they are only squares, straight lines, and other boring things, which are supposed to be called art works. From art works, we can see what an artist wants to deliver to us; we can feel the passion, the eager or even the suffer just like what the artist felt from his/her work. For example, in Renoir’s paintings, we can easily find the tenderness and his pity for people because he had given his spirits to his paintings. Even though computers can also make paintings in Renoir’s style, we can’t see any emotion or spirit in them at all since computers can only imitate rather than create. Another bad effect is that computers have brought much solitude into people’s life. For instance, there are more and more people would like to stay home using computers rather than going out to have interaction with people. This is because these people are poorly educated in a holistic manner. Thus, your viewpoint has caused some misunderstanding. It’s not a good phenomenon, for everyone has to know how to get along with others; there’s no one can live on his/her own. What’s more, we can’t deny that, with the help of computers, we become lazier than we used to be. For example, many students tend to find information simply on the Internet instead of going to libraries for their homework, and if their teachers ask them to hand their homework in type form, the only thing they have to do is copy the information. Therefore, students won’t get anything from their assignments. When it comes to technology, some people will lose the original treasure in human beings, like diligence and sociability. We can’t rely on technology too much. After all, technology is used to help us. We should take advantage of technology instead of being taken advantage of by technology.
