Technology and Development
Prior to beginning work on this discussion, please read the American Psychological Association (2010), Ching-Ting, Ming-Chaun, & Chin-Chung (2014), Kirkorian, Wartella, & Anderson (2008), and Paediatr Child Health (2003) required articles for the week.
For your initial post, you will describe the positive and negative influences of technology on human development during childhood (ages 3-12) or adolescence (ages 13-18).
Using the Ashford University Library, research at least one peer-reviewed article that describes the way(s) in which technology has either positively or negatively influenced physical, cognitive, and/or psychosocial development within childhood or adolescence (e.g., the effects of media violence on aggression or educational products on learning). Describe factors which may mediate the effect(s) of technology within your selected stage (e.g., education, gender, socioeconomic status, culture, or family/parenting). Strive to find recent work, but seminal research on the topic should be considered as well. Evaluate the unique scholarly perspectives found in your research and interpret the implications of technology on human development. Support your perspective(s) with references from the required or peer-reviewed resources. Additionally, conclude with a consideration of relevant ethical concerns (perhaps with regard to policy decisions).
Ethics, Legality, Policies
Prior to completing this discussion, please read the American Psychological Association (2010), Peters et. al. (2013) and Weed and McKeown (2003) required articles for the week.
For your initial post, evaluate the impact of public policy in regulating behaviors that are deemed detrimental to health and, therefore, affect development across the lifespan.
Using the Ashford University Library, research at least two peer-reviewed articles that explore trends with regard to a debated behavior, either the effects of parental smoking on children/adolescents or childhood/adolescent obesity/diet and exercise (You may use articles from the recommended resources list). Evaluate the unique scholarly perspectives found in your research. In addition, appraise some of the public policies that have been enacted to counter the issues arising from second-hand smoke or poor nutrition/exercise habits on your selected developmental period. Suggest and describe additional or alternate policies that might be enacted to counter the negative aspects of such circumstances.
Using the APA’s Ethical Principles and Code of Conduct (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site., analyze ethical considerations in developmental psychology related to the creation and/or implementation of public policy regarding smoking bans or diet/exercise for children or adolescents.
- Is the creation of public policy necessary in this area?
- Based on the professional standards, is the creation of such policies ethical?
Describe how these types of policies are effective.
- In what ways do these policies enhance and/or hinder physical, cognitive, and/or psychosocial development for the affected person?
- Are there equally effective self-imposed restrictions that might be used instead?
- How would you implement your suggested policy, and how would you plan to test the efficacy of the policy versus self-imposed restrictions?
Use evidence from the resources to support your statements.
