*****************************************************************************

The Reboot Foundation is devoted to elevating critical thinking. In a time of vast technological change, the Foundation aims to promote richer, more reflective forms of thought in schools, homes, and businesses.

Practically speaking, the Foundation funds efforts to better integrate critical thinking in the daily lives of people around the world. It conducts surveys and opinion polls, leads its own research, and supports the work of independent scholars.

 

The Foundation also develops practical tools for parents, teachers, employers, and others interested in cultivating a capacity for critical thinking.

 

The Reboot Foundation is not a traditional foundation. They find potential partners through their own focused research and they do not accept unsolicited grants.

Michael Arterberry is the Executive Director of Youth Voices Center, Inc. and the creator of the Power of Peace Program, a dynamic motivational speaker and the author of Be Encouraged: 250 Days of Motivation and Encouragement. This is episode 304 of Teaching Learning Leading K12, an audio podcast.

 

As a teenager, Michael was fortunate to receive guidance from positive adult role models who helped him overcome adversities and set high expectations for his future. Grateful for the role these mentors played in his own development, Michael decided to dedicate his professional life to helping people navigate the difficulties of life and launch their future into motion.

 

In founding YVC - Youth Voices Center - in 2008, Michael drew heavily on his understanding and empathy for the pressures and difficulties of the teenage years. In addition to his own experiences growing up in poverty, Michael has worked with thousands of teens in a range of settings over the past 24 years as a social worker and counselor. 

 

Michael decided to form Youth Voices Center while working on the Alternative to Violence Project (AVP) in Green Haven Correctional Facility. Serving as a counselor in AVP, Michael was impressed by the progress of inmates who entered the program with plenty of hesitation and resistance and left the program raving about how much it transformed their perception of themselves and others. Realizing the power of this type of experiential program, Michael founded YVC and launched the Power of Peace program to transform the lives of youth.

 

In 2010, Michael was selected to receive a USA Network Characters Unite Award, given to individuals who demonstrate exceptional commitment to combating prejudice and discrimination while increasing tolerance and acceptance within their community.

 

In 2014, he was the recipient of the 100 Men of Color Award for leadership in education, government, mentorship, entrepreneurial success and community service.

 

And in 2016, Michael was awarded the EDUCATOR OF THE YEAR AWARD from Y-COP, the Youth Community Outreach Program in Mt. Vernon.

 

Michael is also the subject of his wife’s book, “God Was Holding My Hand,” in which Rachel Arterberry chronicles his journey of coming to know the Lord. Spanning from his tumultuous childhood, to a college football injury that turned into spinal cord surgery, Michael becomes self aware that God was holding his hand each step of the way.

 

Lots to learn and think about today!

Ido Kedar discusses autism, communicating, writing books, and his latest novel - In Two Worlds on episode 303 of Teaching Learning Leading K12, an audio podcast.

Ido Kedar is with us today.

He has autism and can’t talk.

When he was a kid he and his family were told he would not be able to communicate independently, but Ido learned to do just that.

Ido is the author of two books: Ido in Autismland and his most recent In Two Worlds.

Ido in Autismland contains dozens of “short, autobiographical essays each offering insights into autism, symptoms, effective and ineffective treatments and the inner emotional life of a severely autistic boy.”

In Two Worlds is a tale, that “sheds light on the inner and outer lives of children with non speaking autism.” In Two Worlds is one of “a few works written by a person with non speaking autism.”

Through the use of an iPad and other devices, Ido has learned to communicate with others.

Ido also serves on the board of “a non-profit group that advocates on behalf of all non-speaking humans.”

Thanks for listening.

Lots to learn.

Michael S. Daigle Discusses Creating Characters, Writing, and his Latest Thriller - The Red Hand - 302

Michael S. Daigle Discusses Creating Characters, Writing, and his Latest Thriller - The Red Hand - 302

Michael S. Daigle discusses creating characters, writing, and his latest thriller - The Red Hand. This is episode 302 of Teaching Learning Leading K12, an audio podcast.

For 33 years, Michael S. Daigle was a journalist and editor at several newspapers in New Jersey, Massachusetts, and Maine. He's applied his experience as a newsman to become an award-winning novelist. His newest book, The Red Hand, zeroes in on a serial killer that's tracked by a detective, Frank Nagler, as he solves crimes and tries to sort out his troubled life.

"I like creating messy mysteries with lots of moving parts and layers of story," says Daigle. "It lets my detective hero, Frank Nagler lead the reader through the twists and turns."

Daigle's modern mysteries are page-turners, filled with compelling characters and a setting that is more character than background. The hero detective is a recognizable American character. The Red Hand confronts the world of haves and have-nots. Nagler feels he is one of the have-nots, and it encourages his defense of common people. He shows how the impact of societal and economic change impacts a town and people.

Great read!

Brittany Riddick talks with me about her novel - The Writ 212. This is episode 301 of Teaching Learning Leading K12, an audio podcast.

Brittany Riddick is the author of The Writ 212. She currently is an assistant principal at Shiloh Elementary School in Snellville, Georgia and has been in the field of education for over 16 years.

When asked what has inspired her book The Writ 212, she said, “Being an educator for as long as I have has allowed me to see changes and shifts in students' behaviors. One of the biggest shifts is how much technology has impacted not only the field of education, but the actual student. It has become more obvious to me that students are growing more addicted to devices. They even appear to have ‘withdrawal’ symptoms when forced to do work that does not require a device. It is important, as educators, that we do not substitute authentic teaching and relationships for technology. We must have a balance. We have to get our parents to understand the importance of building relationships and not placing children in front of a screen. Technology is amazing, but I fear that our “abuse” of technology is having an adverse effect on our relationships with people, especially our children.”

The Writ 212 is a faith-based science fiction book. It shows how the creation of an app leads to the end of the world by killing off a group called the YSW (Youth of the Second World). Jah, the creator, uses the app to destroy the YSW only saving two groups of people; the Elders (older people who don’t have much use for technology) and the unexposed (infants who have never seen technology). Jah uses these two groups of individuals to begin the Third World (New Age). But when a villager of the Third World finds a working device from the Second World, he unlocks secrets that cause a rift in what was once a peaceful community. The villagers of Eirene soon feel torn between their faithfulness to Jah or knowing the secrets of the Second World.
