    Blacks Who Persevered in Spite of Disabilities

    in Self Help

    Did you know that Whoopi Goldberg had a learning disorder as a child? Were you aware that Harriet Tubman had epilepsy? These are only two of the many examples of Blacks who became successful despite their disabilities. Some people tend to discourage others with disabilities from achieving their dreams because "it's for their own good"; they want to overprotect them or they just don't understand how a person can accomplish anything despite his/her "limitations." Once you hear these different celebrities' stories, you'll never view people with disabilities the same way again. You will be inspired and encouraged to uplift someone else and even accomplish your own goals!

    A Revolutionary Approach To Learning Disabilities

    in Parents

    There’s a revolution taking place in understanding Learning Disabilities. With new neuroscientific findings, we see that an individual with dyslexia--a language based LD-- has a brain that works differently while reading. Educators at all levels are taking this new knowledge to use new assistive technologies to tailor content to the individual mind of the student. Now, a student with dyslexia and a student with aspraxia -- whose brain has problems planning to move the body parts (e.g., lips, jaw, tongue) needed for speech -- in the same classroom, can have their individual lessons optimized for their particular strengths and weaknesses.


    Ben Powers is the headmaster of Eagle Hill-Southport, an independent day school in Connecticut for students with learning disabilities. Prior to joining the school in 2012, he served as headmaster of The Kildonan School. He is a passionate member of and advocate in the field of dyslexia and language-based learning disabilities and ADD/ADHD and is on the board of directors of Headstrong Nation and Smart Kids with Learning Disabilities.

    Computer America - BitCoinComic ; VTech!

    in Technology

    Computer America


    First Hour: BitcoinComic.  Bitcoin is making giant strides throughout the world. Satoshi Nakamoto, its creator, continues as an enigmatic and cryptographic figure. Nonetheless, rumors surrounding his potential wealth have not gone unnoticed by the mafia. He has also popped up on the radar of the secret services. In fact, NSA agents have been searching for him for some time now. The opportunities that this crypto-currency has opened up within the financial markets have turned Nakamoto into a hero admired in more and more places near and far. His fans would go to great lengths to protect and defend him. For many, simply managing monetary transactions and issuing bitcoins without the involvement of intermediaries as well as carrying out transactions collectively online are factors which promote values for a freer world: In hope for a better world. Joining us is Alex Preukschat, the Graphic novel author of BitcoinComic.org.


    Second Hour: Joining us to discuss the latest technology in home phones is VTech. We'll be taking a close look at some of their newest models including their newest TL86103!

    Sociocultural Dimensions of Free-Choice Learning-Intro to Module 2

    in Education

    This is the second radio show for the Winter 2015 term of SED 583, Sociocultural Dimensions of Free-Choice Learning which introduces Module 2.  In this module we focus on theories of mediation and discourse and how these shape the experiences, behaviors, norms, social relations, assumptions, and roles taken by individuals and groups.  We also begin to explore the complex interplay of individual, group, societal and structural factors in cultural systems.


    Lena and I will be joined by two wonderful, knowledgeable guests: Ms. Jill Stein, Principal Researcher for the Lifelong Learning Group at the Center of Science and Industry (COSI) in Columbus, OH and Dr. Shelly Valdez, President of Native Pathways in Albuquerque, New Mexico. They will help us begin to unpack the notion of culture and cultural systems by sharing current work on two NSF-funded projects, Native Universe and Generations of Knowledge (Roots of Wisdom).  These two efforts built upon the Cosmic Serpent project; all three are partnerships with the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) and an effort to blend Western and Native views of science. Shelly is a member of the Pueblo of Laguna Tribe, located in the central part of New Mexico, and also of Hispanic descent.  She and Jill have collaborated on the evaluation of all three projects working to combine Western and Native evaluation perspectives. They are going to discuss what they’ve learned about how to support cross-cultural partnerships, institutional change, etc., specifically talking about how these three projects have evolved and been responsive to what they’ve learned along the way.
