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 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

Join us as we look into the events going on around us. A lot of people are unaware because they are being distracted by busy lives and being entertained like the Romans in the coliseums; food and circus. In order to understand what’s going on around you, you will need to look through the lens of the bible. The Word of God makes it clear what it would be like in the last days. The first thing that Jesus said to his disciples about the end times is “Do not be deceived”. Many are deceived but you don’t need to be one of them as this world spirals into darkness.
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.
