Transcript: English is seen as an effective tool for any educational innovation. As such, efforts to improve English Language instruction receive political and economic support from the government, which determines its place on the social “hierarchy” (Al-Issa, 2002). ELC, ACT (Al Musana College of Technology) has state of the art computer labs and round the clock-access to internet. Teachers and students spend a considerable time of the day with computers either e-mailing, chatting, typing, uploading or downloading assignments. There have been no significant research has done in the field of ELT in Oman. Hajjaj (1989) points out that there are several evident shortcomings in the ELT system of the respective GCC States and stresses the need for research in the various aspects of ELT and perceives it as a sustainable necessity. Rationale of the Study Question 1: What is the overall effect of using Emails on the quantity and accuracy of English Written language generated by the experimental group compared with the control group? Question 2 : What is the overall effect of using emails versus paper-and-pencil on the quantity and accuracy of English written language generated by both the experimental and control groups, when comparing the first message with the last message (i.e. within groups), over the period of a semester (8 – 10 weeks)? Question3: What are the attitudes of both the experimental and control groups toward e-mail writing? Question 4: What are the attitudes, experiences and feelings of experimental group toward email method in completing their writing tasks in the study? Statement of problem 1) Computer mediated instruction especially emails/e-messages have become significant component of teaching language (Gonzalez- Bueno, 1998; González-Bueno & Pérez, 2000) at present. Use of emails is one of the powerful genre of writing in the present world. Among the various forms of CMC in language teaching, electronic mail (email) has been so far the most popular and useful tool for foreign language teaching and learning (Chaffee-Sorace, 1999; Levy, 1997). The paper and pencil method of writing limits the learners’ performance because learners spend more time in transmitting information electronically in the present scenario (Fischer, 2012; Dall, 2001; Kiernan and Aizawa, 2004 & Stockwell and Harrington, 2003). The present study will give some insight in to the quality of computer written text verse paper-and-pencil written texts in terms of accuracy and quantity of language in the context of teaching English as a foreign language in the Middle East. Specific Objectives 1. To analyze and evaluate how grammatical and lexical accuracy is affected by the electronic medium (Emails). 2. To evaluate the relation between the writings produced through emails and paper-and-pencil method. 3. To evaluate the factors influencing students’ writing skills using an Error Correction Code. 4. To contribute to filling the related literature gap on using E-mails in promoting writing in the Omani context. Arabic students learning to write in English may encounter lexical and syntactical difficulties (Fender, 2008; Al-Kasawneh, 2010 & Al – Buainani,2006) . writing using email has many pedagogical advantages. Gonglewski , 1999; Warschauer, Shetzer, and Meloni, 2000, p.3 & Schwienkorst (1998) Arabic students’ poor output in English in the Gulf region is to their lack of motivation, heavy reliance on memorization and rote learning, use of outdated curricula and methodologies, emphasis on high-stake testing and inadequately trained teachers (Syed, 2003). The use of English in Oman has developed into “institutionalized domains”, such as business, the media and education (Al-Busaidi, 1995). To identify the effectiveness of Emails in promoting writing skills of Semester 1 students at ELC, Post Foundation English Program in Al Musanna College of Technology in Oman in terms of grammatical and lexical accuracy and the quantity of language produced in comparison with traditional paper-and-pencil method. The effectiveness in using email in promoting writing skills of Omani EFL learners at Al Musanna College of Technology Introduction Research objectives Lack of studies that have explored and examine the effectiveness of E-mail as a medium of writing contrasting the traditional paper-and-pencil medium in Oman. The study will highlight the significant role of CMC in promoting writing skills. The findings about lexical and grammatical errors and other qualitative aspects of the study can serve important standards for improved use of CMC through emails in EFL writing classes in Oman. The study using email technology to promote writing skill will surely give momentum to the government programs and policies equipping young Omani learners with every day CMC means. Research Questions Significance of the study According to Robert Fischer (2011) it is difficult to think of a foreign or second language (L2) programme that does not make use of some form of

Saudi Arabia Practice Environment Conceptual Framework Data Collection Conclusion a comparison study Magnet & Non-Magnet Saudi Hospitals: In 1991, the American Nurses Association (ANA), through the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), developed 14 standards of nursing care in which a hospital is evaluated through multiple processes for formally credentialing Magnet hospital. The ANCC Magnet Recognition Program® grew rapidly and been sought by various hospitals in multiple clinical settings and different cultural, economic, and political contexts . Saudi Arabia has a serious shortage of registered nurses at only 4.8/1000 population compared to the US at 9.8/ 1000. The presence of two Magnet hospitals in Saudi Arabia is a great a opportunity to explore the impact of Magnet designation on practice environments, nursing practice and patient outcomes. It seems timely to assess the Magnet effect on the designated hospitals and to determine if it could help alleviate the professional challenges related to the nursing shortage, autonomy, and retention. The Purpose To examine practice environment, nursing workload, and patient outcomes in Magnet and non-Magnet hospitals. The Magnet status has become recognized as a seal of excellence for the hospitals that adopt a positive practice environment, best nursing care, and optimal health outcomes for patients. Patient outcomes Nursing Workload Jeddah Riyadh Turnover While the ANCC introduced their new Magnet model, there was only one Magnet-designated hospital in the Middle East and only five international Magnet facilities from three countries outside the United States (Australia, Singapore, and Lebanon) Procedure

Transcript: Proposal Defense Activity Recognition Through Mobile Phone Sensors for Promoting Physical Activity Outline Introduction Over the past ten years, a virtual explosion of interest in mobile phones has led to a revolution in the communication infrastructure. With the technological advancement of mobile phones a new platform for computing is quickly gaining popularity. SMART phones are now equipped with a number of embedded sensing devices such as an accelerometer, gyroscope, digital compass, microphone, GPS and camera. These sensors with strong sensing capabilities are now being used in various fields for human gesture and activity recognition based applications which are opening the doors to new areas of research and significantly impacting our daily life. Related Work On Body Sensors Multiple On Body Sensors L. Bao et al explored the use of multiple sensors on various parts of the body such as the waist, arms, knees and ankles to determine basic level activities [1] Certain activities such as eating, typing and brushing teeth were much easier to determine if the sensors were placed at the wrist and arm [2,3,4] Some systems have been developed to use natural data collection conditions but lacked accuracy [5, 3] Single On Body Sensor A few works have been performed whereby only one tri-axial accelerometer located at the waist or back is used for movement recognition [6-7] These sensors were capable of recognizing basic activities such as lying, walking and running [8-9] Later on single sensor was used to establish transition of movements from sit stand to stand sit Challenges of On Body Sensing Number of sensors Position of the Sensors Mobile Sensing Platform Recent studies have shown the use of a single device which is fitted with multiple sensors such as multi-modal sensor board, a Bluetooth iMote and USB rechargeable battery board [13, 14] It is equipped with a number of sensors: accelerometer, barometric pressure, temperature, humidity, compass heading and light level In one study Tanzeem Chaudry et al used a multi-modal sensor board for activity recognition and attached it to an Intel mote and a Bluetooth device in order to send the collected data to a hand held device or laptop where analysis on the data can be performed [13] Mobile sensing platform has been used for various application based research in the field of psychology and nutrition [13, 14]. Through this device a study was performed to evaluate the sociability and physical activity in older adults. The research focused on the physical as well as the mental well-being of the adults Mobile Phone Sensing A few Researchers have explored the possibility of using mobile phone for activity inference [12]. Jennifer R. Kwapisz [14] investigated basic level activities by placing mobile in the trouser pocket. Applications have been used to collect data from various sensors and analyze the data offline and through classifiers identify basic level activities. Another study focused on the placement of mobile phones at specific position and orientations as well as transition from various states such as sit stand position [15] Application in Behavioral Analysis In [44] the fluctuations in the signal strength of GSM signals have been used to infer basic level activities like sitting, walking and driving. Using this information the pattern of the daily activity level is determined. The use of GSM signals is not a very efficient approach for activity recognition as there are sudden spikes and troughs that cause complexity in GMS cell strength and visibility Previously smart phone GPS sensor data was also exploited to establish the type of conveyance used to commute over certain duration of time There were issues of recognition of the mode of transport in the case when GPS signals are not available and focuses on outdoor activity only [45] More Recent work includes CenceMe[26] which is a social networking based application that uses user sensing information from mobile phone to provide location updates A continuous sensing classification algorithm which implements a mobile sensing collaborative inference technique and was designed to sense the lightweight audio data while at the same time using modal pools for this purpose Research Problem Statement Use of embedded smart phone sensor technology to carry out a behavioral analysis Using activity recognition based application, enhance a student’s knowledge about themselves and their physical environment Establish an efficient classification algorithm and provide useful feedback to the user Problem Description A large data collection set is required to obtain sufficient data for accurate classification Willingness of participants to cooperate and provide useful information Limitations of previous machine learning algorithm Mobile Phone User Context Deployment at Scale Proposed Solution We propose to use cell phone technology to encourage healthy choices for better lifestyle behavior change of youth Specifically, we are
