Ashford 6: – Week 5 – Discussion 2
Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Reference the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.
The Future, Technology, and Health Education
In reading Chapter 10 you saw the four major changes that are likely to occur in our society. Please list these four items and answer the following questions:
- How do you anticipate future health educators will use technology?
- What is the most detrimental effect of the changing family structure in the United States, and how can health educators work to help reduce these effects?
- In your opinion what health issue should be addressed by politicians in future elections? Why?
- With the Affordable Care Act now in place and a greater emphasis on prevention, as opposed to treatment, what benefits should we hope to see in the future?
Guided Response: Read your classmates’ posts and respond to at least two of your peers by Day 7. In your responses, discuss which of these four areas you feel is the most important. Explain your reasoning.
