Making Research Even More Exciting!: Effective Use of Technology for Research Teams

Research can often be a gratifying experience, especially when working with fellow colleagues and student research assistants.  What is even more exciting is when there is an opportunity to use new technology that can make the research process more enjoyable and engaging.  Using three applications –  (1) Dropbox, (2) Evernote, and (3) Scribblar – our symposium will provide a description of each application, discuss practical uses in research, and engage the audience with a live demonstration.

School Violence in the Media: A Proposed Social-Cultural Learning Model

Volungis, A. M., Truong, D. T., Angelone, J., Liu, S., & Whittle, D. S. (2013, March). School violence in the media: A proposed social-cultural learning model.  Poster presented at the 84th annual conference of the Eastern Psychological Association, New York, NY.

Public awareness of school violence has continued to significantly increase following the high profile shootings in the late 1990s due to extensive and sensationalistic media coverage.  We will propose a theoretical social-cultural learning model that links the media’s sensationalistic response to violent school violence through distorting public perceptions (i.e., thoughts) and reactions (i.e., behaviors).  We will also discuss alternative options on how to respond to this current phenomenon on both the individual and systemic-social level.
