    More Than Just A Good Idea: Education Research to Guide Product Development

    in Education

    November


    More than Just a Good Idea: Education Research Guide to Product Development


    Ideas abound for new teaching methodologies, and curriculum, and each claims to be innovative and effective. Governments throughout the world fund a wealth of research into educational strategies and instructional design every year, yet we find that these communities often don’t communicate well with each other. It is not unusual for popular educational solutions to lack research into their effectiveness and how best they can be applied. Equally unusual, many educational research programs, in which curriculum is developed, never see the commercial light of day, or broad distribution.


    We will examine what educational research brings to improving products today and in the future and how publishers can take advantage of research findings to improve their offerings. 


    Host Michael Jay and our leading education thinkers will contemplate the following:



    How closely tied is today’s research programs to educational practice?
    Where are there challenges for the research community in working with commercial vendors?
    How are requirements at funding agencies changing to bring these communities closer together?
    How are our universities and research institutions working to accommodate the commercialization of products from their research?
    How can publishers reach out to the research community to improve their offerings and gain greater credibility with the educational community?

    "New Heights Show on Education" Are Grades Important to Learning?

    in Education

    There are some schools who are abandoning giving grades to students as they believe that a simple letter or number does not demonstrate a student’s learning ability. However, majority of the schools in the US and other countries in general use report cards as a primary means of measuring a child’s progress in school. Reason being is that many schools and teachers believe that grades measure the student’s understanding in a specific subject.


    Today’s we are discussing whether students should be given grades in school and whether they are important or not when it comes to learning.

    Tarot: Symbol hotbed instructing How-to Ascend Home Lost Meanings RevealedPt2

    in Spirituality

    Peeling is a revealing process as is returning to your Source or HOME. Enightenment is most appropriately understood 'Going HOME' where you are a Christos-Spirit Whose Essence is unmitigated Light and Love. Thus, filling  your mind with Light.


    Interestingly, once you are fluent in your native Spirit Tongue, the symbols speak to you in an entirely different manner. You grok them from your Pure Awareness and the information surpasses anything  you thought you knew from ego-mind interpreting symbols. 


    They will expose your "treasures laid in heaven" in a way you can benefit from in a life savvy manner. It is your Divine Heritage to know such things well. Here's a door opening to you...


    It is vital to wisdom to keep fresh in your mind's eye how there are two worlds vying for your attention: HOME and life. You can bless yourself with acceptance of this fact or not. Tarot deals with these two realities with  great clarity.


    Once you accept it though, it is like parting the ocean and walking clearly and safely to The Other Side of Life (TOSL) where your existence actually is emanating from. You are being breathed and granted life itself from TOSL.


    Tarot is a power packed instruction manual, not a tool for prophesy, albeit its inherent power can be extracted and mundanely used in that manner. But, such usage misses its Gold and is trivial by comparison. 


    Listen and learn what few connect with when engaging the energy encoded within the Rider-Waite Tarot. It is AMAZING and makes so much sense. If you can't read it for what it is saying, you can't benefit as intended, right?!

    Breast Cancer Survivor Talks About Faith, Resiliency and Parental Involvement

    in Education

    Dr. Mike Robinson, host of Parent Talk Live talks with Tamara Wallace Norman, a cancer survivor about how her faith and resiliency supported her desire to be involved in the academic life of her son.


    BIO:


    Tamara Wallace Norman, native of Dayton, Ohio, is a wife, mother, and avid roller skater.  Tamara is also a breast cancer survivor.  She was diagnosed in December 2011.  At that time her son, Zion, was 6 years old and in first grade.  He was also in his 2nd year of attending an immersion language academy where we was studying Mandarin.  During Tamara’s cancer journey, she took a break from her 20-year career as a flight attendant in order to focus on treatment and supporting her son’s education.  Her approach to dealing with life has always been to incorporate with her faith two attributes: resiliency and steadfastness. She has seen the effects of this positive approach to life play out in her ability to remain cancer-free for three years and in her role as a mother, helping her son to excel in his studies.  Whether flying, gliding across the hardwood or writing about her passion for roller skating (you can find her at www.lacesandwheels.com), Tamara’s zest for life is most apparent.  She currently resides in Charlotte, North Carolina, with her husband, Jaron, and her son, Zion.

    Detaining & Jailing: The Corporate Way on "I Take LIBERTY With My Coffee"

    in Politics

    As I reported on earlier this week for The Fifth Column News twice in the past fifteen days, two separate class action lawsuits, one in U.S. District Court, one in Grady County Superior Court, were filed naming Red Hills Community Probation (RHCP) LLC, its CEO Margaret B. Crutchfield, and the cities of Cairo, Pelham and Bainbridge, GA, as defendants.  The Federal case, Edwards, et al, v Red Hills Community Probation LLC, et al, filed by the Southern Center for Human Rights, also names probation officers and members of various police departments. The state case, Green v Red Hills, et al, alleges the defendants violated a number of state statutes including various RICO laws as well. The two cases, though not connected in any way, arise out of nearly identical facts and the same pattern of conduct. Joining me this morning to discuss the merits of the case is Attorney for the Plaintiff in Green, K, Todd Butler. Attorney Butler will discuss the allegations and the law supporting his decision to advance a RICO legal argument to the court. Along with the improper and illegal actions of a corporation acting "under color of state law", for the sole purpose of profit.  I will be covering the latest important news subjects as well as our weekly education battle updates. Longtime Activist, Radio Host, Journalist and Coffee Party Director Bobby Rodrigo's show "I Take LIBERTY With My Coffee" on Coffee Party USA Radio every Sunday Morning at 8:30AM EDT. Advocating engagement, pointing out the Constitution is the Rule of Law and why it should remain so. Booby attacks Money in Politics & political party blind allegiance hoping to stop corruption & tyranny. Plus join us Sunday Morning 8:30 AM EDT
