Hey everyone,
Episode #30 is up for your listening pleasure! Episode #30 is the second of a two-part feature on the top three things I learned at the National At-Risk Education Network (NAREN) Conference of 2009. Be warned, this episode is unlike most of the other episodes in that the tips described are more along the lines of “educational philosophy” rather than “strategy” but I felt they were well-worth discussing.

A.T.TIP #41: Brain-Based Learning from the Upsidedownorganization.org

1. Brain-Based Learning- Definition from www.funderstanding.com

2. Brains.org - The website for people involved in the education and parenting of brains of all ages about practical classroom applications of current brain research by Dr. Kathie Nunley.

A.T.TIP #42: Putting students to work doing the work that schools need done

1. Student Volunteer Network – Originally started by three high school students this network provides a database of volunteer opportunities for students

2. International Student Volunteers, Inc. – Not exactly related to doing work in schools, but still an interesting organization.

I’ll be presenting at these two upcoming conferences:

1. Maryland Assistive Technology Network Conference (MATN)- May 7th in Maryland (Session on Alternative Professional Development in Assistive Technology).

2. National Educational Computing Conference (NECC)- June 28th – July 1st in Washington, D.C. (Poster Session: Chew the P.H.A.T-Policies and How-to’s in Assistive Technology with Sally Norton-Darr).

If I don’t get to see you at either of those conferences we can still get together virtually over the Internet. Join the A.T.TIPPERS group on Facebook and/or Classroom 2.0 ! You can also follow me on twitter.com.

A.T.TIP #40: Audio Visual Entrainment (discussion) -

I suppose using Audio Visual Entrainment to assist students with disabilities fits the “exploring” and “investigating” I refer to at the beginning of each episode.  The following are some links with more information on Audio Visual Entrainment for your consideration:

1. Mind Alive Inc. – Company that sells the equipment

2. Our Life Designs – Website for Steve Taylor and others.

3. The Future Hope Project –  MS Word document explaining the project

4. ADHD Therapeutics article on AVE – Article explaining the benefits
