    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!

    Educational System is not Teaching Kids so Why are we Handcuffing the Teachers?

    in Social Networking

    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.

    Play to Learn, Part I: When will educational games be mainstream resources?

    in Education

    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

    The Mystery and Language of Color with Kurt Abraham

    in Spirituality

    The Voice of Change welcomes Kurt Abraham.  Kurt has been a guest several times on the program. He's studied Steiner’s Waldorf education and taught elementary school for some years. He studied the Alice Bailey books for over 40 years, has written 14 books on Esoteric Psychology and the Seven Rays, and founded the School for the Study of the Seven Rays (a non-profit educational corporation).


    Today, he'll be speaking about his latest book, the Mystery and Language of Color.  Every thought, feeling, and quality is indicated in the aura by corresponding colors.  An intense feeling or thought “colors” a person in a certain way.  These can be seen clairvoyantly, but, even without the subtler sight, there are techniques that enable one to see the color and form of thoughts, feelings, and ideas.  A growing sense of color is like a growing sense of truly beautiful music that opens one up to subtler levels of consciousness.  Intellect and personal desires reveal a certain set of colors, while higher mind and archetypal perceptions display different and more resplendent colors. 


    Kurt was born and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and graduated with an MA degree from University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.  Traveled and worked in Europe for five years, where he eventually found links to the spiritual-esoteric traditions, including Ouspensky, Bailey, Blavatsky, and Steiner.  Kurt studied Steiner’s Waldorf education and taught elementary school for some years. He studied the Alice Bailey books for over 40 years, has written 14 books on Esoteric Psychology and the Seven Rays, and founded the School for the Study of the Seven Rays (a non-profit educational corporation).
