Type Lab Proposal
Assignment # 2





I am writing in regards to a solution to an issue in my Learn to Type lab. The problem is that my books and software are outdated. I highly suggest that you order new books and new updated software to be used for my Learn to Type lab. Please look over my proposal this week so that we may get new software and get the books ordered for the new term starting next week. Having new books and software will advance my students typing skills and increase their grades.

The issue with the current software & books
In the beginning of the new term, I will be teaching five Learn to Type labs each day. There are 20-28 students in each of my classes. The books that we have are outdated and they are the same ones that we have been using for the past 15 years. The information in the textbooks is no longer relevant. In fact, these are the same old typing books we used when we had typewriters to teach keyboarding. We are lacking the updated new software to help teach the students typing skills. The typing program we have does not work most of the time. The program does not fallow the book because it is newer than the book.

Another difficulty with these books is that the information is very basic and does not create a challenge. The books do not comprise information about word processing or computer applications because they are so old. The only thing in the books is simple typing for typewriters. We only use computers in my Learn to Type lab and we need books that teach computer keyboarding.

The Typing Software that we use in the labs today are very dull, which cause the students to not pay attention. The students take this class every year for nine weeks. We need the newest software, which would allow the student to save their progress until the fallowing year. Students can then add to there level of…...

Communication

...Running head: SURVEY Survey Xyz wyn University of China Survey 1. What is communication? Communication is the exchange of information between two people or among a group of individuals. There are numerous ways where one can communicate with others including verbal and non-verbal, as well as formal and informal communication. Verbal communication can either be oral or written. Oral communication is done through having face-to-face conversations or talking through the telephone. Written communication can be through the old fashioned letter writing or through the more modern electronic mails. Non-verbal communication includes body language, as well as public signboards, paintings, and even photographs. Formal communication, on the other hand, is seen in businesses where there are agendas, conferences, meetings. Informal communication is usually seen in people who are already familiar with each other where there are no rigid rules and guidelines. 2. What is the purpose of communication? Communication is primarily done to share information with others or to request someone to do something. It can be as simple as telling a story to one’s children or as formal as a boss giving directions to his or her employee. Communication allows for interaction and for people to let others know their thoughts and feelings. 3. What is good communication? Good communication is when people communicate effectively. Effective communication is when one’s...

...Marginal Analysis 1 | Consumer Products, Inc. | Memo To: CPI Board Member From: Kristi Richardson, CEO Date: 9/2/2012 Re: Marginal Analysis of Impending Expansion MARGINAL ANALYSIS Marginal Analysis is a method used in microeconomics in which small variations in specific variables are considered in relation to the effect on related variables and the system as a whole (WebFinance, 2012). Understandably after the last presentation many board members were curious as to how the company’s impending expansion would impact the company’s profitability specifically in the toothpaste division. As we are all aware the market is impeccably competitive and the current price as it stands is $42.00 per case of toothpaste. CPI has marginal cost of MC=.006Q, we now must specify the amount the company needs to produce. To capitalize on our profits the marginal cost must be equivalent to the marginal profits. We know that we have $42.00 = .006Q. The Q (quantity) is 7000 (42/.006). So currently CPI produces 7000 cases of toothpaste to maximize revenues. If we choose to raise prices exclusively in the toothpaste market, CPI could potentially lose consumer demand to other market competitors. The current conditions are considered to be perfect because no one company or consumers for that matter can influences prices the market does that. In perfect competition there are several producers and consumers, there is similarity of goods, there is perfect information and there...

...4. Within the limitations of the data that have been provided, it’s safe to say that the president was probably correct in being concerned about the profitability of the products. However, the problem appears to be with the specialty product line rather than the standard product line. Conventional overhead cost assignment using a volume based measure has resulted in the high volume product subsidizing the low volume product. Consequently, unit costs for both products are misleading. These misrepresentative costs have had a major impact on different areas of the business. These include but are not limited to management’s pricing policies and their perception of the margin being attained on each product. The specialty briefcases are seemingly being sold at a loss even without considering the available manufacturing costs. The excerpted table below showcases the exact values. Gross Margin of CarryAll Products Description | Selling Price Per Unit | Unit Product Cost | Gross margin and/or loss per unit | Standard Briefcases | $36 | $29.98 | $6.02 | Specialty Briefcases | $40 | $45.09 | ($5.09) | Based on the table above, the company should not shift its resources entirely to the production of the specialty briefcases. Whether or not the specialty briefcases can be made profitable depends on a number of factors. One of those factors being the sensitivity of the market to an increase in the selling price of the specialty line of briefcases. 5. Sally Henrie stated...

...Explain how effective communication can be achieved in an organization.  (Be sure to refer to both interpersonal and organizational communication.) Communication is a two-way process of reaching mutual understanding, in which participants not only exchange (encode-decode) information, news, ideas and feelings but also create and share meaning. The effectiveness of communication is therefore determined whether the receiver attributes the same meaning to the message after interpreting it. Whether on an individual or organizational level it is important to achieve effective communication in an organization because failing to do so will result in lowered efficiency and effectiveness. Interpersonal Communication This type of communication takes place every time we interact. A breakdown in this type of communication can be costly to an organization animosity and reduced co-operation in the workplace. The sender and the receiver shares responsibility for effective communication. Thus, senders must send a clear message and receivers must possess good listening skills for the communication to be effective. Sending a Clear Message Verbal communication accounts significant percentage of communication that takes place. In communicating one must be careful of word choice; concrete and abstract. Concrete words represent objects and makes ideas easily conveyed while abstract words are ambiguous and as a result an idea conveyed with this word usage is subjective. Effective...

...James Carey Communication As Culture (Lecture Notes) Mass Communication scholar James W. Carey compares two views or models of communication, the “ritual” model and the “transmission” model. These two views of values associated with them, and emphasize different aspects of communication. The transmission model comes from the traditional social-scientific Sender- Message- Channel- Receiver or S-M-C-R approach whereas the ritual model comes from the social constructionist paradigm. Although he primarily refers to mass media, and particularly journalism, his comparison fits for public speaking as well. In fact, most communication textbooks, including public speaking, begin with the transmission model of communication. The following are excerpts, quotes, and paraphrases from the first two chapters of the book Communication as Culture: Essays on Media and Society (Boston: Unwin Hyman, 1989). “Society not only exists by transmission, by communication, but it may fairly be said to exist in transmission, in communication.” — Dewey The most important single change in human consciousness in the last century, and especially in the American consciousness, has been the multiplying of the means and forms of what we call “communication.” Modern communications have drastically altered the ordinary terms of experience and consciousness, the ordinary structures of interest and feeling, the normal sense of being alive, of having a social relation.

...What is Nonverbal Communication? When most people hear the words “Nonverbal Communication” the first image that pops into their mind is a picture of a person who is deaf or someone who cannot speak and has learned to communicate through sign language or other nonverbal means of communication. Most people are not aware that in reality almost 30% of communication between human beings is nonverbal and that it exists in our everyday conversations. Nonverbal communication is a silent form of communication, which has a great influence over our social environment and the whole communication process. Nonverbal communication allows us to send messages to others conveying what we are feeling or thinking without verbal language. Nonverbal Communication has many different functions in the communication process. It regulates relationships and can support or even replace verbal communication in some situations. This is accomplished solely through the use of nonverbal communication. Nonverbal communication is the use of the body, environment, and personal attributes in order to communicate messages either consciously or unconsciously. Using clothing, facial expressions, and touch are just of a few ways nonverbal communication can be implemented. By reading somebody’s nonverbal communication, it is possible to make many assumptions about the person. Whether these assumptions are correct or not often go unchecked. And just like a book, it may be best not to judge by...

...1.0 Why is operations management important for organisation you have selected? Operations Management explores the way organizations produce and distribute goods and services. Everything you wear, eat, sit on, use or read comes to you courtesy of the operations managers who organized its production and distribution. Goods such as automobiles, airplanes, computers and houses, must be produced, as do the services provided by hospitals, ski resorts, trucks, and airlines. It's the job of an operations manager to make sure these activities occur when and how they are planned. Operations Management is the systematic development and control of the processes that transform inputs into goods and services. The operations function comprises a significant percentage of the employees and physical assets in most organizations. Operations Managers are concerned with each step in providing a product or service. They determine what should go into an operating system, such as equipment, labour, facilities, materials, energy, and information, to produce the output. Operations Managers are also responsible for critical activities such as materials management, capacity planning, purchasing, scheduling and quality. The importance of Operations Management has increased dramatically in recent years. Significant competition, shorter product and service life cycles, better educated and quality-conscious consumers, and the capabilities of new technology have placed pressures on the operations...

...Communication Channels Within an Organization By: Jamie Lee What is communication? Communication is the act of exchanging words, thoughts, messages, or information, as by speech, signals, writing, or behavior. It’s the art of using words to impart information or ideas. In any work environment communication is part of your day, how y9ou will complete your assigned duties. Communication is how you will get your point across. In my paper I will explain the different levels of communication and the importance of proper positive communication in your everyday work environment. Intrapersonal Communication is language use or internal thought to the communicator. Intrapersonal communication is the active involvement of the individual in symbolic processing of messages. The indicidual becomes his or her own sender and receiver, providing feedback to him or herself in an ongoing internal process. It can be useful to imagine intrapersonal communication occurring in the mind of the individual in a model which contains a sender, receiver and feedback. Although successful communication is generally defined as being between two or more individuals have argued that this definition is too narrow. Some forms of intrapersonal communication is day-dreaming, speaking aloud, reading aloud, repeating what one hears which increases conmcentration and retention. This is considered normal. Making gestures while thinking and interpreting non-verbal communication. Interpersonal...

...(1)PROCESS: Communication Process: The Basics Communication is the foundation of everything we do in groups. Without it, people would not accomplish anything more than their own individual desires. For two or more people to perform work together, they must be able to communicate. The better the communication, the more effective and efficient the work will be. It can best be described as a message from a sender to a receiver. The message must be deciphered and understood by the receiver, otherwise there is no communication between the two. Communication is not limited in its form. Any method that successfully relays a message from one person to another is communication. This includes talking, body language, letters, etc. Understanding the communication process will allow for better communication. It is through the communication process that we can find where our weaknesses lie and how to improve. Communication should never be undervalued; it could be considered the most important factor in determining how successful one is in their endeavors. Whether it is business or personal, effective communicators will have immeasurable advantages relative to poor communicators. Consider our most recent president. Much of his success is due to the fact that he is an excellent communicator. Not simply speaking, but body language, appearance, and savvy are other factors that won the hearts of the people who voted for him. He was able to obtain buy in from the people who heard him speak...

...Page 1 Communication Catherine Miller Res/341 June 18, 2012 Richard Antonaros Communication Page 2 Communication Communication is an important factor in anything. Without communication, nothing would be done properly. Types of communication have evolved as the years have passed. Technology has helped people to communicate with one another via Internet and e-mail. The following explains a study that addressed the effectiveness of e-mail and the Internet as international business communication teaching devices. Japanese students were paired with students in a business communication class in the U.S. Problem Teachers all around the world have one thing in common, and that is effectively making use of the always growing communication technologies. The problem is that over time, the technology has fallen short of what was expected. Teachers want to create the ultimate learning experience that grabs the attention of the students. On the upside, the internationalization of the classroom gives a good opportunity to use communication technology in the classroom. The question asked is, “Can e-mail and the Internet be used to create a real cross-cultural communication situation that is interactive and that challenges the students’ expectations and stereotypes” (Hilton & Kameda, Para 4, 1999). Method As mentioned before, a class of U.S. students was paired with a class of Japanese English students. The students were given 1 of 3 scenarios...
