What is confirmation bias?

Please read the following exert and answer the questions.  For case studies, it is not merely answering the question.  It is using materials learned from the class to help support your theory and answer.  You will need to use citations and APA to help you answer the questions. 4-6 pages

The Lexington aircraft crash in the USA in 2006 is a case study in confirmation bias (Ref. 2). A regional jet took off from the wrong runway in darkness and failed to get airborne in sufficient time to clear trees at the end of the runway, causing the deaths of 49 passengers and crew. Multiple cues were missed by the pilots that should have alerted them to the fact that they were on the wrong runway. Instead, it is believed that the crew talked themselves into believing they were in the correct position. For example, in response to a comment about the lack of runway lights, the first officer said that he remembered several runway lights being unserviceable last time he had operated from the airfield. 
1. What is confirmation bias? How does it apply or not apply to this case study?
2. What is availability bias? How does it apply or not apply to this case study?
3. What is the remedy for controlling and avoiding thinking traps using this example as your basis?

Assignment Description
The Discussion Board (DB) is part of the core of online learning. Classroom discussion in an online environment requires the active participation of learners and the instructor to create robust interaction and dialogue. Every learner is expected to create an original response to the open-ended DB question as well as engage in dialogue by responding to posts created by others throughout the week. At the end of each unit, DB participation will be assessed based on both level of engagement and the quality of the contribution to the discussion.
At a minimum, each learner will be expected to post an original and thoughtful response to the DB question and contribute to the weekly dialogue by responding to at least 2 other posts from learners. The first contribution must be posted before midnight (Central Time) on Friday of each week. Two additional responses are required after Friday of each week. Learners are highly encouraged to engage on the Discussion Board early and often, as that is the primary way the university tracks class attendance and participation.
The purpose of the Discussion Board is to allow learners to learn through sharing ideas and experiences as they relate to course content and the DB question. Because it is not possible to engage in 2-way dialogue after a conversation has ended, no posts to the DB will be accepted after the end of each unit.
Assignment Specifics
Part 1
Discuss the following:

How did behaviorism become such a dominant theoretical basis for education and training in the United States?
What do you think is changing in the way people think about others and their learning?
Why do you think that there seems to be so many lecture courses in schools and in training? Is this good or bad?
How might consideration of theories in the instructional design process affect such courses?
Do you think that a tendency to use a behavioral approach in learning and teaching might have something to do with an instructor’s desire to keep control over the classroom and the learning pace and activity? Why or why not?
How do behaviorists make the logical transition in their thinking from experiments on pigeons, rats, dogs, and apes to conclusions about human learning?

Illustrate your discussions with examples.
Part 2
The scientific or positivist philosophy of education argues that knowledge can be discovered and constructed scientifically. Positivists assume that people can discover the truth about the world and that everyone needs to work toward knowledge of the same, ultimate truth, regardless of the topic or field of study. Discuss the following:

In what ways does behaviorist theory support this philosophy?

In your own words, post a substantive response to the Discussion Board question(s) and comment on other postings. Your response should address the DB question(s) and move the conversation forward. You will be graded on the quality of your postings, including mastery of the concept as well as critical thinking. If asked for your opinion, do not simply state that it is a good or bad idea; elaborate on your reasons and argument. Include enough detail to substantiate your thinking as well as your position on the questions or comments.
For assistance with your assignment, please use your text, Web resources, and all course materials.

Over the weeks, this course has opened my eyes to many tools that incorporate technology and better serve students. Of the many useful resources, the 3 that I feel I could immediately implement in my classroom would be the UDL model, using technology for student motivation and how technology can change the future of the classroom. The UDL model we saw in several weeks of discussion as a tool to serve all students in a way that meets their individual needs. The idea is that teachers incorporate all learning styles all the time. It was said in one of the videos that students, even if it’s not their preferred style can benefit from hearing, seeing and doing something. Another concept that I found to be an excellent tool to bring into my classroom is using technology as student motivation. Not only can technology make the data driven classroom stronger by lessening the workload of a teacher, it can also give students a clear and concise classroom experience that meets their individual needs thus making them more eager and motivated to learn. Lastly the “classroom of the future” idea is that of technology changes the dynamics of the classroom. The traditional classrooms of teacher lecturing and students sitting passively are over. Classrooms are melting pots of many learning styles and technology can be the glue that brings everyone together by giveing each students what he or she needs to successful in a quick manner with a click of a button.
Technology can absolutely enhance instruction in the classroom. As a reading specialist, I have spent hours assessing students phonics skills and abilities. This year my district has adopted “ISTATION” which is a computer software application that students get on for 10-15 minutes each day. When they first log in, they take an assessment to find their instructional level of phonics instruction, After that each time they log on a game pops up to work on the skill they had didduducutly with on their assessment. As they do well on the games, they move to other skills they struggled with. If they do not do well on the game, other games will pop up each time covering the same skill. Teachers can print the data in trend lines and can even monitor how fast students are clicking through the games to make sure they are doing their best. The data we receive from this technology has impacted our phonics instruction in a positive way as teachers and myself can spend more time actively engaged with students rather than doing assessments.
In the example I mentioned above, the concepts of differentiation for different abilities of students is really supported. Technology can play a huge role in differentiated learning. It is extremely difficult for a teacher to teach everyone when you may have a range of 20 different reading levels in one classroom. I teach in a area of Texas, where we have a huge number of students coming on from Mexico. There have been many cases, where we have a student entering at different points throughout the year without any school experience. I recently had a 10 year old girl who came into our school and started in the 5th grade. She had never been in school, could not recognize any numbers or letter, and could not write at all, even her name. How is the teacher suppose to teach that student who is so far below grade level, technology! We put that student on ISTATION right away and I was able to find digital games are a kindergarten level for that student to work on throughout the day. It has been a great learning experience for both myself and our teachers. Technology helps students to find instruction where they may have not been focussed or available before.

Construct a list of the top three concepts, skills, and/or resources that you have gained in this course and that are most relevant to your current or anticipated professional role. These could be knowledge, skills, or attitudes related to the course topic, related to your abilities as a graduate student, or other relevant learning for you professionally that has come from this course experience. Include a brief description of each item in your list.
One of the things I found most interesting and helpful was the UDL concept. I plan to go into special education where everything is differentiated on some level so to see that there’s a way to provide differentiation in everyday lesson planning that the entire class has access to in order to make students not feel singled out is amazing. Another thing I found interesting that will be helpful are the software options for students with disabilities. My current district only has access to one so I figured that’s all that is available. Turns out there are several options available and quite user friendly. CAST has to be my favorite and will be my go to for lesson planning to start because it makes sure you understand step by step what each category consists of.
Describe how technology enhances instruction in the classroom and your current and/or anticipated professional role.
Technology is going to ensure that my students now are able to participate on whatever level they are capable. There are so many options and programs out there to choose from to allow students with special needs to participate. At this point when my students are left out of an assignment because of the difficulty, I am going to go find them something they can work with to complete the assignment anyway and show the teachers that they are under estimating our kids.
Discuss how technology supports differentiated learning experiences for a variety of learners and their unique needs.
As I stated above, technology will allow our special needs students to participate no matter what the assignment is. With all that is available now in the way of technology, there is no reason our students cannot be successful scholars on some level. They should at least have the option to try everything.

How do you think technology, specifically social media, influences a child’s mesosystems?

Bronfenbrenner’s Ecological Model     
Your text uses Bronfenbrenner’s ecological model to explain how children’s development is affected by different groups within their world. Using this theory, we can understand how children are socialized both intentionally and unintentionally. You must understand how this theory applies to your own upbringing as well as a young child’s upbringing in order to truly comprehend the concept. After reading the text and the “Bronfenbrenner’s Ecological Systems Theory (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.” article, use your understanding of this theory to respond to the questions below.  
Using Bronbenbrenner’s ecological model, respond to the following questions:

How did the microsystem that you grew up in differ from your parents’ or grandparents’ microsystems? Do you think this is a detrimental or an affirmative change to society as a whole?  
How do you think technology, specifically social media, influences a child’s mesosystems?  

Guided Response:
Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Review all of your classmates’ posts and
