Resources and Ideas Shared on Unplugged Mom Radio Show

"Teachers are often just as oppressed as students are in
school environments as a result of test prep mania."
-Lisa Nielsen

I had the pleasure of being a guest on Laurette Lynn’s Unplugged Mom radio show which you can listen to below.  We had a great conversation where we discussed learning vs. schooling and how I am working to bring open source learning and child-lead learning principles into the school environment.  We also talked about how today's technology, internet and social networking can be useful in learning more and enriching our educational experiences for both children and parents!  We touched on internet apprenticeships, community learning, active parenting and more!  Lots of great info.  Many thanks to Laurette Lynn for inviting me to be on her show!

My interview starts at 19:00.  Following the interview you can see links to all the blog posts, people, videos, and ideas I mentioned.  You can click  “Contact Me” and find ways to connect to discuss the ideas further as well.
