• Which of these two laptops gives the best performance?
To look for the answer to this question the first thing that comes in mind is to review the Tech reviews……
so i been to google and search for it and then i just gone through some reviews….. after been through the reviews i noticed that the performance of the laptop is totally based upon the hardware used in the laptop…..
This type of research falls under Scientific Paradigm

• Are virtual worlds like Second Life useful for teaching?
To answer this question i would probably used the facts available to support the statement….. facts that support the statement are discover from surveys….. there is an example of survey in Dion’s Post i.e…..

A polytech in Hong Kong has already opened a virtual campus. It has it’s own library, medical centre, teaching hotel, exhibition centre and other educational facilities. Over 800 students have learned from more than 10 subjects in this virtual environment.

• Why don’t many school students (16-18yrs old) choose to study IT at Polytechnic or University?
To find out the answer to this question i’ll use the interview approach….. i would like to interview School students with some particular questions and depending upon the response of the students we can have the reason for why…….

Week 3 Q&A

Which of these two laptops gives the best performance?
When i first read the question i was confused…. to me its like an incomplete question…. i was thinking that you are asking about the school laptops or the laptops in the market, then i took another look at your post and read it again… then i come to know that its all up to me how i think about the question….

According to if i someone have to figure out which laptop gives the best performance its all depend upon person to person, that what is he/she is looking in the laptop….. It depends upon the occupation and interests of the person as well….

To performance of the laptop depend upon the hardware
– Hard drive
– battery
– I/O port
– motherboard
– Processor
– Graphic card

Are virtual worlds like Second Life useful for teaching?
I agree with this statement that second life are useful for teaching…. here is the video from the unversity of texas about this topic

VIrtual world teaching is more helpful for the long distance student than the full time student…
because when we study second life in school every student can do the same thing at same time because of the bandwidth….

If you ask me, i am not second life person… i love to study in real classes instead of virtual classes…. because when i use to do stuff on second life i was not able to pay much attention…. i use to learn more in class than self study or virtual study…..

Why don’t many school students (16-18yrs old) choose to study IT at Polytechnic or University?
Perfect answer for this question is “IT DEPENDS” on students interests
If you ask me about Indian students most of the 16-18 years students go for Engineering no matter what is the field because they have the evidence in front of them that most of the successful persons are the engineers out of which 75% are the IT engineers….
but for New zealand students i have no idea about 16-18 years students Sorry…

Which ISP in NZ gives the best value for money?
ISP stands for Internet service provider

The two famous ISPs in NZ are Telecom and Vodafone
i have no idea about the there current plans.. but i am using Telecom broadband at home and its working quiet well for i have never experience any problem with the bandwidth or the internet is slow ……. it cost me $60 PM for 40GB that not enough for me but i can’t get plan more than this….. they offered me another deal for the same price unlimited GB but for that i have to compromise with my bandwidth…. so i rejected there offer continue with this plan….

How do I feel about trying to work with slow internet speeds?
I got the perfect picture to show i feel when working with slow internet speed….

Einstein: – “Reality is an illusion, all be it a very persistent one”
Anais Nin: – “we don’t see things as they are; we see things as we are”

According to Clare both the above quotes are same its just the matter of saying this in a different way…. but as Clare say i am not supposed to agree with her all the time…. what i think is both quotes are saying different things…..
the first quote is about the reality and it is true that reality is an illusion but this illusion is same for every body; whereas if we talk about the second quotes, this talks about the individual person’s way of thinking and way of seeing things as they are just like the personal belief as i talked about in my pervious post…. and in short “IT DEPENDS“…lol

there are 2 more quotes I like…
Edwin Armstrong: – “It ain’t ignorance that causes all the trouble in this world. It’s the things people know that ain’t so.”

Thomas A. Edison: – “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”

Personal Belief and Facts

what i understand from this is diagram, personal beliefs are on which an individual person believes no matter what is the reason, its like individual opinions and their can be different reasons for each person belief it can be the emotions, experience or evidence.

Facts are the already proven beliefs which have evidence for it!!!! and facts are not based upon emotions…..

In this world their will be as many personal belief as many persons exist in this world….
If we talk about facts, Facts will be limited in numbers and every person in this world believe on facts…..
