Discuss the importance that the state of Pennsylvania played within the correctional system. What impact if any

does it still have on our correctional institutions today?

Turabian Format 600-word discussion board wrote with footnotes

Topic: Applying my Ethical Theory

Thread: For Discussion Board Forum 3, you devised your own approach to metaethics. Now it is time to see how well it can be applied to actual issues. Your assignment for this week’s Discussion Board is to briefly remind us of your approach to metaethics (this should only take a few lines) and then apply this approach to one of the issues in applied ethics that were discussed in the reading assignments. These issues ranged from familial problems through pacifism, poverty, the environment, business ethics, healthcare, sexuality, and life and death. Pick whichever one interests you most and in 600 words apply your metaethical theory to some aspect of the issue that was discussed in the reading in order to demonstrate what the moral approach to the issue is.

Be sure to carefully define your terms. You are encouraged to support your position with rational arguments, fitting examples, and expert sources. Any quotes or information used from sources other than yourself must be cited using footnotes in current Turabian format and will not count towards the total word count.

The ability to paraphrase effectively is one of the fundamental skills required for effective academic writing. Paraphrasing shows you understand the source language and can restate it in your own words. Paraphrasing also helps you ensure originality in your writing.

To prepare for this Discussion:

Review the Week 3 Resources. Pay special attention to the webinars on paraphrasing and quoting. Also, study the noted sections of the APA manual so you can learn how to format citations properly.

By Day 3

Post a paraphrase of the following passage from Walden’s Code of Conduct. Include a proper in-text citation in your paraphrase. Make sure to use your own words while preserving the meaning of the original passage. Your paraphrase should ideally be the same length or shorter than the original passage. In addition to paraphrasing the passage, explain in one paragraph the strategy you used to paraphrase effectively.

“As an institution fundamentally concerned with the free exchange of ideas, the university depends on the academic integrity of each of its members. In the spirit of this free exchange, students and instructors of Walden recognize the necessity and accept the responsibility for academic integrity. A student who enrolls at the university thereby agrees to respect and acknowledge the research and ideas of others in his or her work and to abide by those regulations governing work stipulated by the academic unit or academic program, and, in turn, the instructor” (Walden University, 2016. para. 8).

This assignment provides another opportunity for you to evaluate a  variety of digital and assistive technologies for supporting diverse  learners. For this assignment, you will create a presentation using  Microsoft PowerPoint or other presentation software of your choice. To  prepare for this assignment, it is recommended that in addition to  reading  Edyburn (2013) Chapter 1 that you also review the Week One  Instructor Guidance. Additionally, be sure to view the TEDx Talks (2012)  video Can Technology Change Education? Yes!: Raj Dhingra at TEDxBend (Links to an external site.).  While you watch the video, pay particular attention to the story  Dhingra tells about the Firefly Mobile Learning Bus utilized in Turkey  and how students are connecting to technology for teaching and learning  in rural parts of the world.

Next, watch the Conscious Educating (2011) video Microsoft Vision of the Classroom of the Future (Links to an external site.),  which shows how technology might affect a classroom in the future while  considering how much technology has changed in such a short period of  time. Finally, watch the TED (2010) video The Child-Driven Education (Links to an external site.)   in which Sugata Mitra discusses how the best teachers and the schools  that need them the most can connect through effective use of technology.
