AbstractI interviewed twenty-nine fourth and fifth grade teachers in a western New York school district to get their perspectives on cooperative learning activities and how they incorporate these activities into their classrooms. The teachers were provided a nine question survey where they were asked to answer questions about how they perceive cooperative learning and how they incorporate different activities into their instruction that promote social learning. I reviewed the surveys to see what the benefits of cooperative learning are in the classroom and if teachers feel those activities help their students. I found that all twenty-nine teachers surveyed believe that cooperative learning activities are beneficial for their students and they incorporate them into their classroom every day.

E-Learning: How Constructivist Learning Theory Guides Module LearningCannarelli, Gabriella; Kahn, Russell; Advisor; Schneider, Steven; Reviewer (2016-12-01)This paper will review the theory behind constructivism and how it connects to module based e-learning. Social and cognitive constructivism have similar views, but they are very different. Constructivism calls for a student to learn based off of previous experiences and building on that knowledge to make new assumptions. People argue the effectiveness of module learning, but many find it to be the up and coming way of learning. Technology usage is getting greater and greater all the time so why not shift how we do education? e-learning is the way of the future. Learning modules utilizing learning management systems offer a direct route to both successful learning, but also connects to the theory around constructivism.
Evaluating Variant Deep Learning and Machine Learning Approaches for the Detection of Cyberattacks on the Next Generation 5G SystemsKholidy, Hisham A.; Borgesen, Michael E.; Kholidy, Hisham A.; Advisor (SUNY Polytechnic Institute, 2020)5G technology promises to completely transform telecommunication networks, introducing a wealth of benefits such as faster download speeds, lower download times, low latency, high network capacity. These benefits will pave the way for additional new capabilities and support connectivity for applications like smart homes and cities, industrial automation, autonomous vehicles, telemedicine, and virtual/augmented reality. However, attackers use these resources in their advantages to speed up the attacking process. This report evaluates four different machine learning and deep learning approaches namely the Naïve Bayes model, the logistic regression model, the decision tree model, and the random forest model. The performance evaluation and the validation of these approaches are discussed in details in this report.
Does the Homework Format Really Matter? The Impact of Homework Format and Learning Style on Accounting Students’ Learning Engagement and Academic AchievementSmoker, Kari; Maxwell, Patricia E.; Stites-Doe, Susan; The College at Brockport (7/1/2018)The experience of students submitting written homework is compared to those using online homework platforms at a college in the northeastern United States. Results indicate that online homework platforms can increase student engagement in the course when students are satisfied with the platform’s functionality and when students believe the web-based tool matches their own learning style. Findings suggest that students not inclined towards e-textbook use might be willing to set aside their preferences and try an online homework platform if they believe that the experience will be compatible with their learning style. Given the links between perceptions of learning style and platform functionality with positive student perceptual outcomes, results suggest faculty may be able to increase their students’ sense of efficacy towards online homework by demonstrating a positive attitude toward the platform, and showing their own engagement with web-based tools.
