This mini case study is based on research of an International provider of Adult Education. Hi Everyone, this is Amanda Gonter. “It takes the brain six minutes to die once oxygen is cut off. It can take a person as little as five minutes to bleed to death. Bones that are not set, may never hold weight. Cuts that are not cleaned can become infected. In the minutes after a trauma, how the body is treated can make a world of difference to the outcome, and time is of the essence” (Kathleen Northridge). St. John Ambulance, “believes that it’s absolutely unacceptable that so many people die needlessly – because no one could give them first aid when they needed it” (“About us”, 2012). St. John Ambulance is an organization and charity that provides adults, and even high school students, of any race or gender with the essential knowledge, skills, and training to perform first aid and CPR in emergency situations. St. John Ambulance is a form of nonformal education supported by local communities located in London, England. The overall mission of St. John Ambulance is to “provide an effective and efficient charitable first aid service to local communities, to give training and products to satisfy first aid and related health and safety needs for all of society, and to encourage personal development for individuals through training and by membership of our organization” (“Vision”, 2012). Nonformal Education similar to St. John Ambulance is also found in the United States. The Amercian Red Cross is non-profit organization that offers a variety of instructional courses catered to the field of medical emergencies and situations. The American Red Cross, mission statement states, “The emergency responder. The lifeguard at your local pool. A trusted babysitter. Each year, an average of more than 9 million people gain the skills they need to prepare for and respond to emergencies through American Red Cross training classes, including First Aid, AED and CPR training. Get engaged. Get certified. Get inspired - while learning an important new skill, you’re in the right place” (“Workplaces”, 2014). Both St. John Ambulance and The American Red Cross provide effective courses regarding health and safety and almost mirror one another. Although, I did notice some differences, for instance, St. John Ambulance offered unique certifications such as fire marshal training, stress management, and moving and handling (teaching individuals to lift properly in the workplace) while The American Red Cross offered training in disaster relief, and lifeguarding. Specifically regarding First Aid, the course duration was quite different, as mentioned previously, St. John Ambulance’s session was three days and The American Red Cross was only two to five hours. The courses are also broken down differently for instance the material covered in First Aid at St. John Ambulance, might be covered in CPR and AED in the American Red Cross. Honestly, I was quite surprised to find that my particular International Adult Education choice to be almost parallel with one of the American providers of a similar program. I found this mini case study to be very informative.

Tags: Week #4 Discussion, literature review topics, correlational vs. experimental research
Hello Everyone- I hope you are enjoying the Week #4 discussion! I am so excited to learn about all of your topic ideas and I look forward to reading your detailed explanation of what you will be studying in your research journals on Saturday. You also have a quiz due on Saturday, and the Week #4 discussion ends at 10pm tonight. Thank you for great discussions and quizzes during Week #3. We are moving through the information on statistical/quantitative research and next week we will resume discussing quantitative research methods. Last week, when we were discussing experimental research, there were a few points which I think need to be stressed a bit more, involving the variables and use of control. So, I have posted an additional document in the Week #4 folder that talks about the difference between correlational research and true experimental research. Next week, we will have our discussion and another quiz, and you should be well under way working on your literature review and annotated bibliography. As always, please feel free to post any questions on the "Ask the Instructor" discussion board. I also have office hours on Tuesday from 8am-9am and Wednesday from 8am-12pm. Feel free to e-mail me to set up an alternative time to meet. Have a great week!

Tags: laughter and tears, daily basis, exhaustion
For me to be in an effective teacher. I believe I need to laugh laugh laugh and then laugh some more. Authorization is not one to trade in to lightly. Ours is not a profession for those who think our work here in today our students play for summer vacation. Ours is a profession which is literally a never ending job if you want to do an outstanding one in the classroom which is outstanding job of course comes exhaustion and so much frustration. This is a job that cannot know whatever they want in which the day flows smoothly. How can it be when you're confronted on a daily basis with over one hundred personality ages twelve to thirteen not to mention those other been throughout the school. This is why laughter is so important. What better way than to deal with the stressful day. Kurt Bonnie just said laughter and tears are best responses to frustration and exhaustion. I myself prefer to laugh since there's less cleaning up to do after work. I concur with him.
