Federal & state regulations play a big part in the ability of our community to thrive or flourish. As the people who make up our community, we are or should be aware of what our community needs from Congress & political figures. This episode will discuss those economic, educational, & family regulations that either could help
or hurt the common community.
This is the first broadcast for Next Generation Global Education. Learn about who we are and what we believe in. Find out what the "Matrix of a Learner" is. Why are we in Cameroon? Where will we be going next? Who will we be interviewing next? And how you to can be an educational revolutionary
The common community has many issues to address. Economic, educational, & family regulations that matter. It is the community's responsibility to either make or break policies that matter. Join us this episode as we discuss the community.
There are over two million home educated students in this country, and the numbers are growing each year. Please join us on Monday, September 14, 2015, with our guests Ms. Pier Penic , Founder and Director of Culture at Home, and Ms. Megan Rochon-Moore, Creator and Founder of the blog, https://sistateacher24.wordpress.com, as we discuss the growing trend of home education in the United States. We will discuss the different types of home education solutions and resources available. We will also examine reasons why parents are choosing home education over traditional schooling, why the African-American home education population is increasing at faster rates than other demographics, and how you address concerns of anti-social and ill-prepared home educated students. Let’s talk about it! Give us a call/listen. We'll be waiting.
If you enjoy Chess, Checkers, Scrabble, or any other board and table top games, then you may want to tune in! How about technology: Instagram, Facebook, and not to mention all the email and text messages you can't seem to find enough time in the day to respond too? And what about the kids, do you wonder that they may not be doing enough "brain challenging" activities to help develop effective critical thinking skills? I can certainly remember all the fun we had playing all those classic board-games!
Did you know that kids who learn and actively play board games such as Chess, Checkers, Scrabble, Monopoly - have a higher IQ and score higher on aptitude test! Did you also know that by not keeping the brain sharp and focused, can increase the onset of Dementia in adults of any age group? WOW..as the old saying goes: " If you don't use it, You will lose it!"
Event Coordinator, Ethan Parker, will join the broadcast to share about this no cost, inexpensive program that is made available to anyone - at any age. This is a great opportunity to plan for family gatherings and an inexpensive way to encourage fun all while encouraging higher learning. This is a great educational and social venue for kids and adults of any age group, who enjoy learning new skill-sets while having fun family time in the process!
Until next time.....Take Care..
Call, email, or chat...we would love to hear from you!
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.
Today's show begins with some news Kevin overheard about other truck shows. The biggest one, the Great American Truckshow is coming up and Daimler (the biggest company) has decided not to attend. We talk about why that is? What is good about having truckshows and how we think we could change and better the educational event scene. Let's Truck!
