Play to Learn, Part I: When will educational games be mainstream instructional resources, or are they already?
What is the role of play for humans? In our rather puritanical society is play a valid method to support learning or does it change the game? Will our cultural norms accommodate gaming or will communities respond by asking schools to engage in serious learning and dispense with this sort of learner engagement? Our guests on this show represent different perspectives in the business of gaming in education. Come join us at the Table and find ways that you can integrate game strategy into your products, instructional strategies, and marketing.
Guests at the table:
Lee Wilson, CEO at Filament Games
Dr. Jodi Asbell-Clarke, Director of EdGe at TERC
Mat Frenz, Producer and Business Development Lead at GlassLab Games

Schools are no longer a path to cultivation and a life of the mind; they are on a path of a job. Along the way, as schools became a training ground for corps of workers, they also became a means of furthering national interests. The debate about schools had become part of the debate about national power. Which brings us to the twenty-first century.
When George W. Bush announced No Child Left Behind (NCLB), his purported intention was to encourage a set of practices and institute a set of assessments that would ensure every child got the same good start at school. Implicit in that formulation was the now familiar premise that it was up to schools to close the income gap between the rich and the poor. In its most beneficent form, it could have made a powerful difference in the lives of many children. If NCLB had ensured that all kids would learn how to read and that no child would become disenchanted enough to drop out, it might have been wonderful. But that’s not how NCLB played out.
Within just a few years, teachers were rushing to make sure that each child got a higher score on the standardized tests than he or she had gotten the year before. School superintendents also felt compelled to see to it that their schools got higher scores every year. What had been promoted as a means of ensuring that all children received the fruits of our educational system became a relentless push toward improved test scores. With each year, more and more focus was on the scores themselves and less on the education the scores were intended to measure. At the national level, politicians threatened that if we didn’t educate everyone, once again our country might fall behind. The conversation was less about giving everyone access to reading, thoughtful engagement in civic life, or the pleasures of ideas, and much more about seeing to it that everyone could earn a decent wage.
Please join me for an interesting and candid dialogue on the current state of education. My special guest Principal Khari Shabazz will share with us all of the wonderful things that he is doing to effect change in the lives of children. Additionally, he will share his conceptualization of a father's pivotal role in their child's educational process. We can certainly all appreciate to learn about the educational process from a male perspective.

It will definitely be an informative listen!
Thank you again for tuning in and for your consisent support!
Stay blessed until next time....
What are Educational Units that we have now added to our certification process (in replace of electives)?
In many professions, after obtaining their degree, a person is must do continuing education on an ongoing basis in order to maintain their status in that profession. While we do not require our students to do anything after certification, at The Healing Arts Learning Organization we value the need for continuing education. We value it so much that we have used elements of it and incorporated it into our certification process as - EDUCATIONAL UNITS! An Educational Unit is a "point" you will obtain by attending other trainings that will help grow your birth business. One Educational Unit is granted for every two hours of additional learning you participate in. (The total number of educational units required for certification can be found on the Doula Training page. A student can use a maximum of 6 educational units per topic to count toward certification.)
Use this opportunity to help complete your education in areas you feel you need more knowledge, obtain training in areas that will help provide additional income streams that compliment your birth business or to gain knowledge in new topics of interest that will make you a well-rounded doula after certification. Don't have previous business experience? Didn't breastfeed yourself? This requirement is a great chance to take courses that will not only customize your training to your unique needs, but also qualify toward your certification! Search your area to find what might be available, as this will be a great opportunity to make connections in the community.
Let's use this broadcast to brainstorm some ideas of what you can use as an Educational Unit!

In this episode of Bringing Voices To Power I talk with Lawrence County's own Darin Liles about the direction of the Lawrence County School System's proposed tax and other educational issues. Darin Liles is a former standout athelete from Town Creek who went on to play basketball in Indiana. It's going to be great to get his honest perspective about the issues facing our beloved Lawrence County.
This week’s episode of TZM global is hosted by James Phillips from TZM education and the UK chapter of TZM. Along with some brief news from the movement James will be reading the next two articles from the minds in the making section of www.tzmeducation.org entitled 'Building a learning environment' and 'Building a new paradigm from the inside out'.
These articles outline educational and transitional models/methods that could help to shape the mindset required for a sustainable socio-economic system to emerge.
It's that time of year when everyone is on the hunt for the school supply list, the teacher wish list; and, that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle backpack that Target had online but can't locate in the store (oh wait, that's MY challenge at the moment).
Seriously, this time of year for many is filled with excitement but for children who learn differently and their parents--there is often very little to be excited about as the fights about homework resume.
According to a 2010 report from the National Center for Learning Disabilities, nearly 2.4 million students are diagnoised with LD and receive special education services in schools.
For parents trying to navigate this educational maze to obtain help for their child, it is often described as the equivilent of attempting to climb Mt. Everest in flipflops.
What do you need to know to advocate effectively for your child? What is an IEP? Who is eligible for a 504 plan? Is there really a difference between a 504 Plan and an IEP? What are the first steps in the IEP process? Does it really speed up the process to get your child tested outside of the school system? What are some types of things you as a parent or guardian can ask to have included in the IEP? We're going to cover all of this and more!
If you have a child that you believe may need extra help in school to thrive then this show is for you!
We will have Licensed Psychologist Dr. Arcella Trimble as our guest to help navigate the waters on Educational Advocacy 101 for Parents and Guardians as well as blogger Karen Wesley Weaver.
Karen's blog, Confessions of An Asperger's Mom (http://confessionsofanaspergersmom.blogspot.com/) has been featured on Mamapedia and is listed on the Top Mommy Blogs http://www.topmommyblogs.com (yes, please go vote for Confessions of An Asperger's Mom).
