Insights Into Education Podcast

American education is caught at a cross roads. While there is no shortage of discussion about how to educate children moving forward, much either lacks historic insight into the fundamental building blocks that got us here, or is based by policies funded and dictated by private interests. In Insights Into Education Dan and Ed informally discuss the concerns of parents and teachers about the state of American education. They focus on what they have collectively learned in almost 100 years of experiences as teachers and administrators. They believe education must be focused on each individual child. They share a wealth of knowledge about experiential education. As parents, and having dealt with parents' concerns on many levels, they share insights into what parents need from teachers and the education system.

This 19 minute episode introduces parents to the essentials of brain development in children who are allowed to play and develop naturally, without technology. No tablets. No smart phones. No electronic programs should be introduced at home or at school which are falsely touted as educational until major brain development can overrule their limited educational value and their addictive qualities.  Ed and Dan urge parents to read: Glow Kids. How Screen Addiction Is Hijacking Our Kids - And How To Break The Trance, by Nicholas Kardaras. 2016. This issue is a red flag concern for everyone unaware of how the misuse of technology can impede brain development.
