Ep130 Dr. Kevin Pugh on Transformative Experiences in Education
Dr. Kevin Pugh joins Tony to talk about Transformative Experiences in education. Dr. Pugh, a high school friend of Tony's, is one of the pioneers in the field of Transformative Experience Theory, which is a belief that â€œlife is about having rich experiences and the things we learn in school should enrich and expand our everyday experience outside of school.â€ The Transformative Experience Theory focuses on how in-school learning can enrich out-of-school experience by expanding perception, contributing meaning and value to future experiences, andÂ how learning should be transforming our relationship with the world. It combines ideas from John Deweyâ€™s theory of aesthetics and his philosophy of education. Transformative experiences occur when students take ideas outside the classroom and use them to see and experience the world in exciting new ways. Dr. Pug is a professor in the School of Psychological Sciences at the University of Northern Colorado. Kevinâ€™s book Computers, Cockroaches, and Ecosystems: Understanding Learning Through Metaphor, can be purchased here https://amzn.to/2qYEkbp Kevinâ€™s blog can be found at https://learningandexperienceblog.wordpress.com More about Tony, or the Virtual Couch podcast can be found at http://tonyoverbay.com and you can find more information on Tony's pornography recovery program, The Path Back, at http://pathbackrecovery.com

Civil Rights - The Unfinished Journey | 6
Seeking to build upon the gains of the early 1960s, Civil Rights activists pushed forward on a series of ambitious efforts. Voting rights activists returned to Alabama and again faced violent reprisalâ€”this time televised for the country to witness. A shocked nation watched the violence in Selma in horror; Congress took action, passing the Voting Rights Act.Off of this success, Martin Luther King Jr. began building a coalition of activist groups to turn the nationâ€™s attention to the fight against poverty. Gathering support for a massive march on Washington, Dr. King visited Memphis, hopeful and in high spirits. He did not leave alive.â€œAmerica does move forward and the bell of freedom rings out a little louder. We have come some of the way, not near all of it. There is much yet to do.â€ President Lyndon B.
