Join me as I discuss the importance of technology and computer literacy for today’s student especially in online learning environments. This particular topic is very special to me as my wife, Renee Burgher, has returned to college and currently attends Phoenix University in pursuit of her Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration. All of the academic projects and assignments she submits for grading are completed using either Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint or Microsoft OneNote; learn how she uses the other applications to stay organized and manage the academic part of her life. Listen in so you will know how to maximize the use of these tools, whether for yourself or for a significant other, to ensure academic success.
Please join me as I share the results of my professional quest to research the importance of technology and computer literacy for entrepreneurs and new small business owners. As a solo-preneur myself I have truly benefited from maximizing the benefits of technology and computers when it comes to equalizing the playing field with my competition. As a result of this journey, I have re-focused my training & consulting efforts to educate entrepreneurs and small business owners on how to become more efficient, effective and productive users of technology with a strong focus on the Microsoft Office Suite of applications. After-all, how can you ignore this statistic….according to Microsoft, 1.1 billion people (or 1 in 7 people on the planet) use Microsoft Office. I am quite sure that a significant percentage of these users includes entrepreneurs & start-up small business owners. If you currently use Microsoft Office or have been thinking about purchasing the suite of applications, then you don’t’ want to miss this broadcast on learning more about how Microsoft Office Suite applications can be applied to your business!
How does the human brain accept rationality AND irrationality? What are the mechanisms at play when it comes to the acceptance of religious beliefs and claims? Are some people more predisposed to superstitious thinking than others? What are the best approaches to help promote science, reason, rationality and evidence-based thinking?
Joining us for this show will be Dr. Caleb Lack (http://www.caleblack.com) a clinical psychologist and educator on psychology, critical thinking and science VS pseudoscience. He writes the "Great Plains Skeptic" column on the Skeptic Ink Network (http://www.skepticink.com)

Often times we take for granted just how important technology literacy is in our personal, professional and academic lives. For example, I am a diabetic and therefore it is very important for me to monitor my glucose levels; I use Microsoft Excel to track my glucose readings, the times at which I take my glucose readings, the food that I have eaten that day and I also track the highs, lows and averages for the week. I even have charts and graphs to display trends in a pictorial way. Tracking this information allows me to make any necessary changes to my diet, exercise routine and the occasional treat - a piece of "real" lemon cake (not sugar free). That is just one of many ways that I use technology to help me on a personal level. It is only through knowing about Microsoft Excel and spreadsheets that I would have known to use this program to help me with my health.
Listen in to learn more about the different Microsoft Office Suite applications (that you probably already have on your computer, laptop, tablet or smart phone) and some of the ways you can use them personally, professionally and academically.
THE NATIONAL COUNCIL OF TEACHERS OF ENGLISH: NCTE
What's Really Happening in Literacy Teacher Education
University of Louisville Early Childhood Prof Kathryn Whitmore and
Colorado State's Louann Reid are our NCTE guests.
There are those who understand this person all too well. So wrong...so dysfunctional...so seductive and so compelling. The underlying psychology is fascinating. It explains how the driving forces of these individuals. Dr. Penn will give you a graduate level primer of the Borderline Personality.
Since January of 2014, I have gone on a personal and professional quest to research the importance of technology literacy in the workplace...and it truly amazes me how individuals today still take for granted the importance and necessity of technology literacy skills in the workplace. I came across article after article about the importance of being computer literate in the workplace, the importance of basic computer skills and the importance of computers skills as an office professional. Therefore I am re-focusing my training & consulting efforts to educate individuals on how to become more efficient, effective and productive users of technology with a strong focus on the Microsoft Office Suite applications. After-all, how can you ignore this statistic….according to Microsoft, 1.1 billion people (or 1 in 7 people on the planet) use Microsoft Office. Today’s broadcast will discuss how the very applications that sit on desktops at many places of work offer individuals more options and a greater ability to become successful employees in the workplace…the catch is enhance one’s technology skill sets, identify the issues and obstacles they face, and to begin integrating these new skills sets with the experience each individual possesses to minimize, if not, eliminate these obstacles.
I am starting with the workplace during this broadcast and I will discuss how to achieve e-squared-p at home, professionally, and academically on future broadcasts. So stop by my web site, www.tabtraining.com, or lookup TABRadio here on BlogTalkRadio.
My friend Steve Balzac, author of "Organizational Psychology for Managers" (download book excerpt on Motivation here), answers these questions:
1. Many tech companies handle leadership by promoting an engineer to team management/leadership. Is it true that engineers only respect other engineers as team leaders? What does that do to team performance?
2. You mention the use of games in chapter 8. How can games be used to develop leadership skills and inspire innovation?
3. How can I apply the principles in your book to promote effective organizational change? How can gamification help me there as well?
We are priviledged to have Mr Patterson with us. Not only a superb author , but also a leading advocate of children reading and children's literacy .at http://www.jamespatterson.com/about_we-can-get-kids-reading.php
Language and reading skills begin a lot sooner than most people realize.
There are “pre-reading” or “pre-literacy” behaviors children must master in order to be able to read and write.
In this "Brains in Toy Land" segment Dr. T reviews the webpages from the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association (ASHA) on Emergent Literacy.
Dr. T also reviews and an article in ParentGuide News by Dr. Elizabeth McCrea, President of ASHA.
Dr. McCrea talks about early language skills that lead to success in reading, academics, and more. Included are skills to look for and activities to do at home to help your little one thrive.
