But I'm starting to do things that he does, and they're not bad things, and this isn't bad. It's just a weird little habits that you want to read, get them from. I wonder if he got them from grandfather and they're just heredity, or it's just how we're wired together. Other day driving down the road in the left hand lane, enough traction between me and the 18 Wheeler in front of me, but there were some little Kia behind me who just wanted to get around us so she bolted around the right side and pulls back in and basically the truck hits its brakes and she has to stop. So I just kind of waved at her and smiled. I thought, oh my gosh, my dad does that. I'll find myself chatting up people like cashiers at the grocery store or waitresses and things like that. Just talking about stupid stuff, like my father does. I don't know why I do that. My wife will look at me sometimes, just shake her head and go, okay, bob, whatever, and that kind of chuckle. I don't mean to be doing it. I don't realize I'm doing it, but I find out the older I get, the more I'm like my father every day. Now I guess you could say that's a good thing.

The Most Insane Leftist Responses to the Rittenhouse Verdict

"Excuse me, the daily wire. Collected, they listed. We're going to post this, Mike online dot com. The most insane leftist responses. To the rittenhouse verdict. President Biden, while the verdict in Kenosha will leave many Americans feeling angry and concerned, myself included, we must acknowledge the jury has spoken. What do you mean you're angry and concert? What are you angry about? What you wanted this kid's head on a platter? Is that what it is? Self defense isn't supposed to be self defense? How about Gavin newsham? This nutcase, governor, America today, he said, you can break the law, carry around weapons built for a military. Shoot and kill people and get away with it. That's the message. We've just sent to armed vigilantes across the nation. You see, newsham, these kooks never condemn the rioters or the looters. No, no, no, no. The guy that had a gun in defect was trying to protect a business and was defending himself. He's the bad guy. Not the pedophile trying to kill him. No, no. He's the good guy. How about governor J B pritzker, of Illinois? This classic. He heard about Newsom evidently instead hold my beer. Pritzker said, carrying a loaded gun into a community 20 miles from your home and shooting unarmed citizens is fundamentally wrong. How about the congressional black caucus? Here was their statement. It is unconscionable our justice system would allow an armed vigilante who traveled to Kenosha Wisconsin and killed Joseph rosenbaum Anthony huber and the wounded gauge grows gross Croix to go free. Colin Kaepernick. He said, well, but I can do you better. We just witnessed a system built on white supremacy validate the terroristic acts of a white supremacist. NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace, ha, let the boy be black, he said, and it would have been life. Hell he would have had his life taken before this BS trial. Sad. House judiciary committee chairman Jerry Nadler. These are not insignificant people. This is a very prominent Democrat. He said, quote, this heartbreaking verdict is a miscarriage of justice and sets a dangerous precedent which justifies federal review by the Department of Justice.

"Daily wire just some examples Federal appeals court blocks Biden's staggeringly over broad vaccine mandate This is the 5th circuit Court of Appeals they did this late on Friday calling it as I said staggeringly over broad The three judge panel in New Orleans ruled that Biden's mandate grossly exceeds osha's statutory authority something I told you right here I mean read the statute Now the Obama lawyers read the statute they didn't give a damn And writing that rather than a delicately handled scalpel the mandate is one size fits all sledgehammer that makes hardly any attempt to account for differences in workplaces and workers They have more than a little bearing on workers varying degrees of susceptibility to the supposedly grave danger the mandate purports to address This is a quote from them Judges Curt the englehart Edith H Jones who would have been outstanding on the Supreme Court on her day And Stuart Kyle Duncan said that the mandate imposed financial burdens on businesses They could potentially violate the constitution while it does Writing the mandate imposes a financial burden of on them by deputizing their participation in ocean's regulatory scheme exposes them to severe financial risk if they refuse or fail to comply And threatens to decimate their workforces and business prospects by forcing unwilling employees to take their shots take their tests or hit the road The court stayed the mandate in a ruling Saturday writing that there were potentially grave statutory and constitutional issues with the mandate

Why Are Republicans Putting Up With This Energy Crisis?

"In Sturgis, Michigan, it is $2 89 cents a gallon. I guess that's better than in California. What is the Granholm plan to increase oil production in America? Oh my God. That is hilarious. Wood that I had the magic wand on this, as you know, of course, oil is a global market. It is controlled by a cartel that cartel is called OPEC, and they debated decision yesterday that they were not going to increase beyond what they were already planning. Incredible. The cliche would take would be, that would be to let them eat cake responsive it. And by the way, the commentator wasn't going for it at all. He asked a very serious question from Bloomberg, and she just starts cackling and laughing. Like, oh yeah, like I could control that. They destroyed the Keystone XL pipeline. They remove fracking and fracking licenses and leases. So incredibly arrogant. And I've called for this for quite some time. We have to tell Republican governors to disobey Joe Biden and resume construction on the Keystone XL pipeline immediately. We've said this on the show for a while. I say this when I travel. Let's just put it into a piece. Have I wrote that PC? I don't think I have yet. I can't remember what we're doing anymore. Write the piece. I will write the piece this week. We'll get it done. And it's very simple. It's that wire Republican governor's putting up with this. Republican governors could fix the energy price crisis now. And people say, well, Charlie, the federal government says that we can't do that. Oh, you mean like how San Francisco, Los Angeles, Portland and Seattle? They say they don't want to enforce immigration law, and they allow rapists and murderers to go free without giving them to immigration customs and enforcement. You mean like that kind of disobeying with the federal government? You mean like Colorado, Nevada and Washington and Oregon, saying they're going to legalize marijuana against federal drug law? You mean kind of like that? No, I'm saying that it's long past time that we start to put our country first and say, Joe Biden, thanks for playing, man. You're destroying our energy grid, gas prices are going up in one of the most expensive winters on record. We're going to build the Keystone XL pipeline. And we're going to force you to bring federal agents in and arrest them, but that would require. Let's just put it nicely. Courage

Gordon Chang Describes 'The Great US-China Tech War'

"Let's continue one on one with Gordon gi Chang. Let's jump straight in. We just mentioned it. Explain why you use this phrase for your latest publication. You can find Gordon's work at Gordon Chang dot com. What is this great tech war between America and China and how does this quote unquote company Huawei fit into it? China wants to dominate all the world's technologies. And we saw a hint of this in their maiden 2025 initiative, which they took ten critical sectors and said that they wanted to be self sufficient and they wanted to have the world's best technology in them. They added an 11 sector which was 5G, the 5th generation of wireless communication. That's the Internet of Things. That's where you have everything connected to the Internet, including your front door, your car, your pacemaker, you know, just everything. And Huawei was their national champion. It was the world's number one maker of telecom networking gear. And until the Trump administration got a hold of it. It was looking like it was going to wire the entire world. Why this is important is because if you can wire the world, you can steal the world's data and you steal the world's data, you put it into artificial intelligence. Artificial intelligence systems, even if their technology isn't as good as ours, and there's a debate about that. But even if it isn't, AI systems run on data in China can put all the data in the world into it and we're a democracy. So we have pretty strict restrictions on what we can feed into our AI systems. Then that means with better AI, China will have more efficient manufacturing. It will have better nuclear weapons, you name it. So Huawei is at the center of that and the Trump administration put Huawei on the commerce department's entity

Loudoun County Father Arrested at School Board Meeting After Daughter Allegedly Raped in School Bathroom

"For years, we have been warning about how the trans lobby is going to be endangering young women because they're going to allow young men that have mental problems who think they are women. Allowed into locker rooms. And we have been pushing back against this. Rather, I don't want to say unsuccessfully. There's been some wins and some losses, but the ACLU and all these major organizations, they are pathologically focused on trying to destroy regular gender norms and reinforce gender dysphoria. Now gender dysphoria used to be something that was talked about and was accepted as a real thing, and now we have decided to reorganize society completely and to play into a very serious mental condition that people should get treatment for. They should get counseling for. And so, in loudon county, you might remember this father that went to the school Scott Smith, who was arrested for disorderly conduct for trying to speak out at the school board meeting and then the national school board association calls him a domestic terrorist now why was he there? I want every father listening to this to know this story. Well, he was there because on May 28th, a boy who pretends to be a girl allegedly wearing a skirt, entered a girl's bathroom nearby stone bridge high school and sexually assaulted his 9 9th grade daughter. This is according to daily wire and Washington examiner. The family's attorney said, quote, a boy was charged with two counts of forcible sodomy. And one count and this is very graphic. So if you want to just talk about poppies and rainbows, go find another network. One count of anal sodomy, and one count of forcible fellatio, related to an incident that day at the school. The sheriff's office confirmed, via a public records request that this was a real charge, mapping, matching the date and location of smith's rape. His 9th grade daughter gets raped in a bathroom by a man wearing a skirt, who thinks he's a woman. Spare me the we need more Caitlyn jenners in the Republican

"wired" Discussed on The Wired Homeschool

"Despite what some parents doing school online is not the same as homeschooling. Hello and welcome to the wired home school. i'm your host. John wilkerson and before you turn this podcast off because you're a home schooler. That uses online curriculum. Let's clarify a few things. Because i have recommended online curriculum to you. If you've listened to this podcast. And i've recommended it in social media. So what exactly am i talking about. Well it's back up a little bit at the beginning of twenty. Twenty education suddenly got transformed because schools across the world. Were shut down. Because of this teeny tiny little single cell organism and i would say home schoolers for the most part were unaffected. Co-ops field trips and social activities. And probably some other enrichment experiences. Were put on hold or cancelled but the way we educated our kids. I don't think really was affected because why we decided to educate our children at home also hadn't changed. Nevertheless bomb bartered by memes online from celebrities and micro influencers about the realities of homeschooling moms holding. Glasses of wine joked about teaching algebra and teachers posted about lecturing to students in their pajamas. The teachers in pajamas and the students in pajamas. We're all home. Schoolers now was heard far and wide but was really true. Is it still true. Let's think about this right now. In the united states there are in person and online classes for public and private school students. Also some parents have opted for one hundred percent virtual classes and have declared themselves as homeschooling. There are some key differences between homeschooling. And what. I call online schooling and it probably isn't obvious to parents who were forced to do school at home. One of the first things you want to think about here is at home schoolers. Choose to educate their children at home for various reasons they could be religious reasons. Maybe the parents want to have a minimalist life style and move into an rv drive around the country here in the united states or in europe and home. Schooling is a better option. Maybe they're not happy with the way their culture is represented in the majority of the public school curricula. There could be a number of different reasons that they chose to home school. Maybe they have an aspiring actor or actress or musician. Choose to homeschool because it's more flexible and it's just the better option for them and going to public school. Here's the other thing about home. Schoolers is we have to pay for our online curriculum and usually we pay our school taxes on top of that apparent that's in public or private school. Maybe not so much a private school but certainly a public school. They don't have to pay an additional fee for that online component. It comes with a package if you will. How about this home schoolers. Don't take attendance. We're pretty much always home schooling and if we want to take a day off if we want to change our schedule because home schoolers aren't usually bound by schedule. There's a cat. There's a few caveats to that. We do what we need to do. We're kind of always homeschooling home schoolers choose their curriculum. And i think this is one of the big things here if i send my child to public school and by the way a have sent one of my children in public school this year. I don't get to choose his curriculum. The school district chooses at the teacher. Chooses that me if i want him to use one particular math curriculum another one. I don't get that choice if i want him. Taught science from one certain world view as opposed to another. I don't get that choice if my child goes to school and this whole schedule thing man. Is that something to get used to monday. Through friday to report the school this block of hours. And that's that's when school is done whereas a home schooler if you wanna wait until ten o'clock or do your schooling in the evening because that's more convenient for you. You can do that if you want to do school on the weekend over the summer over holidays while you're on vacation these are all choices that you get to make

"Despite what some parents doing school online is not the same as homeschooling. Hello and welcome to the wired home school. i'm your host. John wilkerson and before you turn this podcast off because you're a home schooler. That uses online curriculum. Let's clarify a few things. Because i have recommended online curriculum to you. If you've listened to this podcast. And i've recommended it in social media. So what exactly am i talking about. Well it's back up a little bit at the beginning of twenty. Twenty education suddenly got transformed because schools across the world. Were shut down. Because of this teeny tiny little single cell organism and i would say home schoolers for the most part were unaffected. Co-ops field trips and social activities. And probably some other enrichment experiences. Were put on hold or cancelled but the way we educated our kids. I don't think really was affected because why we decided to educate our children at home also hadn't changed. Nevertheless bomb bartered by memes online from celebrities and micro influencers about the realities of homeschooling moms holding. Glasses of wine joked about teaching algebra and teachers posted about lecturing to students in their pajamas. The teachers in pajamas and the students in pajamas. We're all home. Schoolers now was heard far and wide but was really true. Is it still true. Let's think about this right now. In the united states there are in person and online classes for public and private school students. Also some parents have opted for one hundred percent virtual classes and have declared themselves as homeschooling. There are some key differences between homeschooling. And what. I call online schooling and it probably isn't obvious to parents who were forced to do school at home. One of the first things you want to think about here is at home schoolers. Choose to educate their children at home for various reasons they could be religious reasons. Maybe the parents want to have a minimalist life style and move into an rv drive around the country here in the united states or in europe and home. Schooling is a better option. Maybe they're not happy with the way their culture is represented in the majority of the public school.

"The great courses have art classes. There's one. I'm not sure the exact name, but it's something like how to understand. Appreciate Great Art, so if you want to give your kids credit for an art appreciation class there it is, they watch the videos. They talk to you about what they learned. They take a few notes. That kind of learning will stick with them. especially with the visual of course for art that helps slot. Boy recently discovered. Discovered a woman who puts up cub scout activities, and they're generally science activities that she's done with her cub scout group, and of course she's tried it with the kids, so she only makes videos after she knows that the activities successfully work, which is an important one. You discover that when you talk to other home, schoolers do the science activities in the curriculum. Actually work when you try them. Because we've add some do and some that don't. There's there really are a lot of even if you just google free homeschooling resources for art, or for history, or that sort of thing, you'll happened upon the Lai mentioned ducks tres. ducks Tres Dot COM is great one for looking up historical stuff, and it's not presented with seventeen paragraphs of information. You know it's three or four. It's kind of bite size for younger kids and gets their attention and gives them the basic facts of the matter. A couple of our favorite books I just. I love to mention these books because. Otherwise a couple of my kids have really enjoyed we when we were a little bit down in fractions, decimals and percents in pre algebra topics I, discovered books by Danika mckellar and her books. Some of them are specifically for pre-algebra for middle schoolers. One of them's called. Math doesn't suck. And one of them is called girls get curves that one's about geometry and their math presented like a fun book from the library to read not like a textbook and my daughter. Who's twenty still remember some of the techniques that she learned from math doesn't suck like when you want to take a fraction and divide it, you push that sucker over. She'll say that when she's working with a pencil paper Bush that sucker over and divide. This went into that one. Those are fun, books and I think every kid should read them as they get to that spot. So you've probably got a flood of information and we're GONNA. Make sure that there are links to as much of this as as we can put over at wired homeschool.

"It's a lot more memorizing facts than it is just play play play play. All of my kids have used that and they use it for refresher to when they start to slow down on their affects. We certainly use you tomb. You can learn nearly anything on Youtube. But that one does take some parental oversight for sure. But you know what is really helpful on Youtube is when your kid is learning something in their textbook, and you're not really sure the topic then late in the evening. When they're in bed, you look it up on Youtube and you watch and you figure out what it is supposed to be learning. So that you can explain it to them the next day and then they think you're an expert on everything, so there's definitely types that I've gone to look. We taught physics this past year and my goodness. That was many years ago for me, so I needed refresher on that to keep up with my boys doing physics. There were some really great things going on online. During the quarantining that educational programs that were put on specifically for kids that were home and that. Are Continuing in in some former other for example. We watched Mark Rober. That's his name. The he had science demos and he did it I think every day for a week or two weeks or something every day at four o'clock, there was Mark Rober Science Demos and he did very fun topics that would really take the kids. Interest, of course, one of the he always starts with a question like a good scientist and one of the questions was does a human being way more or less after passing gas now I bet most parents can actually answer that question. I couldn't answer the question, so of course the kids really wanted to know lots of silly things. Along the lines of mythbusters. Presented a little more educationally, there was a there were things from the Cincinnati Zoo that each day. They would introduce you to a different animal at the zoo. And the caretakers would. Teach about them, show videos of them, and so that was a neat thing. There were people reading books for little kids that they would read books in a real engaging way, and certainly to keep up with. Some of those would be fun if they were things that your kids enjoyed then. You know. The, kids especially younger kids don't have to know. This is part of school it can just be. This is kind of a fun time that we sit in. Let's have popcorn and listened to a story SORTA thing you know it school and you're sort of counting it as school time. But they don't know or care. There was a Webcam on a giraffe that was going to have a baby giraffe and every day we would check and see what was happening with the Mama Giraffe. Maybe. Those are things that you do with your kids outside of a regular school day. Maybe they're not so those can certainly count when you do those things with your kids. You are schooling whether you thought of that or not. For Art there's a website called deep-space sparkle. That is a very inspiring art teacher. She has some free things up there or you can do a membership to get access to more things. Same thing for art for kids hub. It's called. They have drawing lessons that are really engaging and doable for any age. It's a dad, and he draws with his kids and he shows them step by step and. Many ages of my kids enjoyed that for a long time there again. Some of it is free..

"Ducks, tres dot. com is a big one that we use the WIKIPEDIA. That's specifically for kids. They like to browse around on that. Was a matter of coming up with some new different activities, but our actual homeschooling didn't really change that much. We kind of had that in place. So we saw a lot of parents that were having to adjust to homeschooling, and for the most part, those parents were doing school at home, and dealing with how the public school system implemented a virtual or an at home program. And some of those parents might be thinking. I don't ever want to do this again. and others might be thinking. I. Think I can do this home schooling thing. I liked having my kids home. They learned better, so we want to discuss this after Kovin session here kids are. Off Sperm School now, so to speak, it's summer break. And parents are. They're probably even going to be challenged now because camps aren't going to be open and things like that. And after all this is over. They're going to want to do home schooling some of them. So what would be your primary piece of advice that you would give? A mother, a father parents who are considering pulling their kids completely out of school and home schooling now. I was talking to a neighbor who had her kids in public school and. She said they were really struggling with the virtual nature of things. Their teachers did not actually do video classes for the kids. They just sent them work to do work on paper things they had to read and write the answers for and that kind of thing and her kids were really struggling. If that was you and you were trying to do what the school was telling you to do. I would hope that maybe through that experience. You would say to yourself. I think I could do this better. And that's what I want to say to people as you can probably do it better than the public school. If your thought, process is now we have to have thirty five minutes of history, and then we have to have thirty five minutes of science, and then we have to have thirty five minutes of math, and each one of these things involve papers and pencils and dull and boring. Answer the questions at the end. We've never really done. Are Home schooling that way a little bit here and there I mean they do. Do Math lessons out of a math textbook kind of thing. But I would encourage you to consider more of a life style of learning. That sure you want to hit most subjects most days, but the time that you spend delving into things that the kids find interesting. The time that you spend investigating things I'm forever calling the kids over the computer and going you guys, look look what I just found. And because I'm interested and excited about it, they get interested and excited about it, and if it happens to be a sci Fi kind of topic that I found and we. We sit there and look at it together for fifteen or twenty minutes..

"Get right back to it. After that five minutes and do another twenty minutes and I have found that. When I know okay I have a deadline coming up to get something finished I can stay focused on on my work and get a lot more done than if I just kind of. Sitting around okay I got stuff to do today, but Out I. Guess I'll get it done today sometime. Easy to get distracted like you said even even as adults we get. We get distracted by Rat Greens, and it's that principle of work expands to the time allowed right in one of the hard parts of being homeschooling families. We don't really have a schedule. Do you know what it's like? We've got all day to get this done so one of the things I've. I've found especially with my son and home schooling. He travels with me when I go to speak, and he has for a long time and one of the interesting things would happen, we would. We would drive someplace and say we have a speaking engagement at seven o'clock we would roll into a town about five forty, and so we would have maybe thirty two minutes. Before go to like a Panara Brad where we could grab some dinner, an EIB before the event, and what my son found was those specific time periods that were compressed, actually helped him focus, so he'd say Dan. I've gotTA write this essay. Let me put my ear buds in, so he would actually listen to music, which some of our kids actually really helpful. Even listen to music and in that. Specific time period he would find. It would actually help him focus better, and then the other thing that you mentioned John, which is important as giving yourself a reward, so you do the twenty minutes of work, but then you get five minutes ago. Walk around talk to other people. So for some of our kids, it would be that okay. We're GONNA do that twenty three minutes or thirty seven minutes, but then you're award is going to be X..

"You're listening to an encore presentation of the wired home school. This interview with Kirk Martin was originally recorded in October twenty seventeen. This one's a little bit longer than the ones that have been recorded in the past. But I think you'll like this content even though it's a little bit longer form. Here we go back to twenty seventeen with perk. Martin, my wife, Lisa and I we recently saw you speak up here in. New York and we were so excited to see you a second time and I just want to start out by saying just so the listeners know that we really. Value Your your advice that you've given us, and and we can tell you that even though we were not perfect in it. When we do implement your techniques, they have they have worked for us. And we're looking to implement more so that these can be a little bit calmer in the Wilkerson household, right? And we. All of us can use that, so that's good. Thank you for that. Yeah, absolutely, so a lot of people may not know A. Shared kind of the the the you formal side of things here, but but made people want to know a little bit about okay well. So what makes Kirk an expert in this? So could you just briefly share with them? What makes you an expert not? I'm not sure if I can answer that directly, but you know what I would share as kind of where where this originated where it comes from it lot of came from the fact that my our son Casey was just a very strong, willed child, and I just didn't like him a lot when he was little, he just didn't do what I told him to do. And it was frustrating it and it and it hurt our relationship a lot and what I found over time was that. My initial instinct was always to change him right to make Kim be a different kid, and if you just do what I told them to do all the time, our home would be calm and what ended up out was. I was the one who had to change and I've found that. When I began to change my body posture might tone of voice. How I interacted with him. It began to change all of our interactions. It actually changed his behavior, and so I found that the more than I changed myself. The more people around me changed, and so that led us really to working with kids who are a little bit more strong. Strong willed kids having them actually in our homes. Over the course of a decade we had about fifteen hundred kids actually come through our home, so we could teach them how to control their own emotions and our own impulses, and then we began working with the parents to teach all of us will. How do we calm ourselves down when our kids get really frustrated, don't do what we say and so You know it for me. It's been a transformation as a person and and we've been fortunate enough to be talked to a lot of parents and work with a lot of kids, so if that answered your question or not, but my expertise doesn't come from reading books or getting a degree. It came from working directly with the kids, and just honestly living this out my own life, and saying hey, when I control myself. It actually works, and it changes relationships, and so hopefully that'll come out as we go through the strategies tonight. Well that definitely sounds like it makes you an expert Kirk. So or I'm glad to have you and it sounds to me than like what you're saying is the first thing that needs to change..

"You're listening to an encore presentation of the wired home school once again. I've got another episode from the Twenty Twelve Northeast homeschool convention. This time. It's Tony Cerezo from homeschool astronomy. I hope you enjoy episode. I would tell any Sarah so of homeschool astronomy and we ran into each other here at the northeast homeschool conventions homeschool convention and Tony. Thanks for taking some time to talk to me. How great great to see you at the booth review product before and. I think it's wonderful. I love it because it's simple to use and it's it's powerpoint so it runs on any computer out there pretty much and even smartphones and things like that What what made you decide to start doing this? Homeschool astronomy curriculum. Let's do question. I mean it certainly a passion of mine. I don't know who can do curriculum without being somewhat passionate about what the writing about and I also have a background. I have a master's degree in education. Which lets me make things into curriculum and a lot of computer knowledge and Strana me knowledge so I kind of put that together and you brought up the powerpoint one of the reasons I did it in such a simple format is because it will run on anybody's computer. It's not like he gets the CD home and you can't get it to work. It's it's very simple and so with with astronomy we. We talked a little bit about the challenges of getting people interested in astronomy. And I it seems like the interest in it has has been waning but recently we had some really cool events. We had an annual or eclipse of which is primarily seen on the west coast and we had the transit of Venus. How how do events like this? Help people especially home schoolers. How can they use events like this and incorporate that into their curriculum well certainly unique astronomical events are great impetus for a study because you can take something very specific and kick off of that? But I'll tell. Ya have to disagree with you a little bit. I don't know that people aren't interested in astronomy. I think people are very quickly interested in it. Because it's so amazing so visual but some people as you're probably pointing out don't consider it as a teaching resource for a science in their home schooling and I don't know why that is but I'll tell you because everybody seems to love. It is interested but I think people need to take it more seriously as a science and consider studying. What are some of the things that over over the past that astronomy has brought to us just to Kinda give the listeners? An idea of how. How has astronomy in impacted our lives today? Well I'll tell you. Nobody has a true sense of how much astronomy has impacted almost everything we do not to mention timekeeping calendars seasons. I mean it really is the structure for most of our lives though. We don't see that as much as our ancestors did for example our ancestors that's how they kept time and seasons and they didn't have as much to do at night as we do so a lot of times they would just be out under the stars and that's where they came up with these ideas about characters in the sky and stories they were involved in so certainly it was much more in the face of our ancestors but as soon as we get a tap on that. I think we connect very quickly now with astronomy. There's a there's a number of online resources that people can go to and they can find out lots of information about astronomy. What what separates your curriculum from. Say The free things that they have to wait through. Google in order to find right well. That's a tough question because I do like a lot of the things that I see on the Internet about astronomy. But I'll tell you. The vast majority of them are not geared for an organized homeschool teaching curriculum. And that's what homeschool astronomy does for a puts it all together in one easy to teach and extremely fascinating and engaging for the home scored another aspect. Is that your home school or could actually do this by him herself if you wanted because really all you're doing is hitting the space bar to move through a self paced curriculum so to answer it. Maybe even a shorter way what sets it apart. Is it's organized structured. It's altogether it's simple to use and there's no evolution. That's one of the things that I really like is that it is easy to use and it it's structured in. There's no having to worry about whether or not there's going to be content in there that that may that may concern you or even content. We know that even secular astronomers they they differ on their opinion on things and so we know that that that the content in there is is solid. It's been it's been proven and also I think what you do is you're able to bring perspective. That really makes it much simpler. Let's talk about a little bit about the eight. What Age levels would you recommend your your curriculum for you? That's a good question because obviously astronomy can be very simple and up to extremely complex. So actually have the full curriculum in two different versions. I have one for kindergarten through fourth grade and fifth grade for Fifth Grade. Through high school. So we cover the whole spectrum and certainly you can't just take anything and throw it at any age so I've broken down for the home school user and homeschool astronomy dot com where they can find out more information about about your product or any other places online where they can get in contact with you. Well that's the main main resource and if you go to home school astronomy dot com and sign up on the page for free. You'll be on my email list. And only once a month you'll get a nice astronomy newsletter about what to look for in the sky that month and also throw some deals in there for the curriculum. Thanks again for taking some time to talk to me. Thank you and I hit your site at least once a month. Thanks for what you do thank you..

I conducted with Todd Wilson from family man ministries at the Northeast Great homeschool convention in two thousand twelve. I hope you enjoy this trip down memory lane. Here's the interview. I am going to be talking to todd. Wilson the family man from family man ministries. Now Todd is the author of help Mary to Homeschool mom the official book of homeschooling cartoons and Taming Techno. Bc's a data writer conference speaker. Obviously in a former pastor and I have been following his ministry for a number of years and I absolutely love the way he communicates two dads if you ever get a chance to hear him in person or even on a recording. I think you're going to enjoy it. He took some time with me afterwards and we talked a little bit about technology and how we can deal with that in this brief interview. So here we go with that interview with Todd. Wilson Todd Wilson with me from family man ministries and we just finished He just finished talking to US parents about taming the tech nobis and todd first of all. Thanks for coming out to the north Northeast Great homeschool convention. It's really great senior person. Instead of the podcast or online right always gonNA be around a lot of people who are just like us and the first question. I wanted to ask was with with us being constantly connected all the time a lot of people anyway especially myself. Who's WHO's into using technology in education. How how has that? How have you seen that has changed the way people parent their children around one? We're constantly distracted by people outside of our family. You know. I think that's a great question. I think Maybe it's a couple of cited one that our kids are very distracted. They're very distracted. So they they don't interact. I think in the same way like I was sharing some stories up there that my son he kind of fills in all his empty time. So when we're driving down the road he can take somebody else when we're waiting in line. He can tech somebody else you know and it used to be in those empty times. We used to just talk to each other. And now we don't and I'm seeing even with my wife and I and I miss some of that just that interaction fill in the blank time and I think for DADS especially that we can be very guilty of doing the very same thing. I sharing you know when my kids were at the swimming pool. You know I had my phone with me so it was easy to check some things answer some emails when I should have been undistracted and watching my kids do backflips and you know swimming in the water and our kids are little kids are GonNa grow up and their vision of dad is going to be the guy who has his head down in his lap. Watch looking at something in his lap. I guess you know or this thing. That's always in their hand and you know we grew up. We didn't have that are that it was just. Their mom was just there weren't there but they didn't have that distraction right then they couldn't take the phone with them Disneyworld or they couldn't go out on the boat and talk to somebody but now we can. I don't know I know it's hard to go back but I think maybe he's gotTa make some of us be very intentional there. We're GONNA have to say you know this things. Stay in pocket while we're here at the pool or whatever so. I think it's a big deal it. It's almost as if technology is this wild animal and at the Circus. You can make it do tricks. really impressed with that. But then but then one day bites you back. You know Exactly what are the things that I've often thought about? This is how it's changing the way we think as parents and our kids as well because we don't have to think through in answer anymore we can look up an answer on Google or or whatever. Do you have any thoughts on that about? Do you find that struggle yourself to that. You know you not actually thinking through a solution to a problem but you just let me just Google it and find the answer. There's a there's a lot of truth to that and you know in fact I think we're sometimes even frustrate we can't find it. We used to be okay with no answers and like you said we kinda struggled through it you know. I remember even just going to the library wanting to find something out and you get to the library and they go. I don't know we don't have looked for that and you say walk away and now you know we we. We feel like we're entitled to answers to everything and I had thought about that but I think that's a great thought. Maybe I'll think about it some more because I think we do we. We don't want to wrestle through. WanNa WANNA silver bullet. Google answer for everything Obviously you you travel a lot with your family in the RV. And I. I don't know if you continue homeschooling after you've finished or not do do you. Once we hit. Kinda one around the RV. We do a different kind of school. I got so much. The books More experiencing we see a lot of cool things like we were at Plymouth. Rock just a couple of days ago and and my kids work our booth and they'd do the money and they interact with people and so it's kind of a. It's a different animals. Do you use any technology during during that point to any home schooling educational APPs on the on ipads or laptops or anything like that. We do we really. Have you utilized this things? Maybe with some of the little kids You know whether it's the reading APPs or their math APPs and we're really excited about that and even the possibility I could see some of the other curriculums offering more IPAD APPS and I think it's a great tool I'm not against it We have a friend who whose daughter is has maybe mild autism and the ipad. App has been incredible. You know they. They have more than they have books but very interactive and. I think it's awesome. I think it's cool to so I. I'm all for them. And finally just so the listeners of the podcast can know where to find out more about you and your ministry could just give them a little information on that they can find. Us online at Family MANWEB DOT COM We haven't ministry called family man ministry you can Google it. You can were easy to find And we'd love to get to know more guys and encourage them and really what matters most. Thanks again talk. Oh thank you. Thank you so much for listening to this. Encore presentation of the wired homeschool. These encore presentation are going to be edited down. They're going to be quite short all of them less than ten minutes to get you as much information as possible if you appreciate. What is going on here?

"You're listening to an encore presentation of the wired home school. This interview with Andrew. Puyo was originally recorded in two thousand and twelve at the northeast. Great homeschool convention. I hope you enjoy listening to this. Blast from the past. Andrew is the founder Principal Speaker Director of the Institute for Excellence in writing and he presents all throughout North America and addresses issues related to teaching writing thinking spelling and music. And he does this wonderfully with humor and clarity and insight and practical experience. I think you're going to enjoy listening to this interview. I enjoyed being in his sessions. Here's my interview with Andrew. Padilla I went Andrew at the northeast great homeschool convention and he has some very interesting insights on technology and how writing has kind of deteriorated as technology has increased with writing. Could you just share a little bit about that? Yeah a lot of people ask me well. What about children composing at the Keyboard and quite honestly? I'm not a big fan of that couple reasons. One is just practical if you start typing everything when you're nine years old and you never learned to write on paper then you have to go write an essay on the sat or the act or even the ged has hundred necessarily go to college and have to take notes in class because professors don't like laptops. It's a case where you wouldn't have that skill if you didn't develop it so I encourage you know from a practical point of view. Keep kids writing on paper for as long as you can. They develop the skill. The other one The other reason is more philosophical and I think it has to do with the idea of you have to think a little bit more. A little more of a human activity took to write letters on paper to write essays to write stories. And you kind of think of Mark Twain. Writing on paper with a fountain pen you know and I suspect that he would think of his sentence and he would listen to himself. Think maybe even talk to himself he would rehearse it in his mind changed the words until he had it just about crafted perfectly and then committed to paper and That idea of the discipline of thinking before you write seems to be very good. I know it's good for me and I notice the difference when I right when I type things I think. Oh I can just change so easily and I don't pay a lot of attention whereas when I have to write on paper I think I gotta get this good the first time because I don't want to make a lot of changes so kind of a philosophical element as well as a practical one. We just finished listening to you. Talk about the the reluctant writer and some of the things you mentioned was not to worry about spelling not to worry about handwriting. So if you have a student who just can't master handwriting. Because there's a motor skill issues or even can't master spelling for that matter without the use of a spell check or or or a dictionary hand. Do you think technology is better in that case? If they can at least verbalize the concepts that they're looking for well dislike correction. I didn't ever say don't worry about handwriting or spelling. What I did say was separate the complexity so I am a big in favor of teaching children to spell and finding a methodology that works. I'm in favor of children developing good handwriting and I think copy work is something that used to be normal for elementary. But it's now kind of taken the back seat and no schools anywhere. Really do it anymore. But it's got tremendous value not just in terms of building the stamina putting words on paper but also the idea of taking a good idea into the brain and copying out on paper so there's modeling there and getting back to your question on. How can we help children use technology? We'll certainly the little spell checkers I mentioned in the talk. That can be very handy because the kids can type in the word that they think they want to write and then it'll give them some options and hopefully they can recognize which one is correctly spelled for an extreme case. I mean let's just go to an extreme case of a challenge so dysgraphic that they just can't they can't handwrite. They can learn to type. They can even get software that they can speak into the computer dictate dragon dictate to and and it will transcribe with a fair degree of accuracy. What they're saying and I have. I've experimented with us a little bit myself. I find that I actually ended up having to fix what I said and it takes longer to fix it then to have just typed it in the first place but for Children. I think is an introductory step. It's a little bit like a machine. That does what mom could do. What moms have been doing for years? Okay just tell me your story and I'll write it down for you so Validity either way I think but I don't like the idea that children will become permanently dependent on that technology. We should we should have technology improve US right not limit us. Well Andrew. Thanks for your time. And where can people find more information about you and your philosophy your products okay? Well we have Companies called Institute for Excellence in writing and our website is excellent in writing a one word. Excellent writing dot Com and you can also just google up.

"Hey everyone it's John from the wired home school and I wanted to put a quick message up here for all of you. I know that there are a number of people who are looking to homeschooling now that we've had this covert nineteen outbreak in the United States. And I wanted to let you know that the resources that are on my site are being updated as much as possible now. I don't plan to release any more additional podcasts but I did want to make sure that you were available of the resources that were on my website. So if you go to the wired homeschool DOT COM SLASH. Emergency Dash homeschooling. You'll find all of these resources. They include resources from other sites as well as some of the resources that I've gathered over the years that include resources for writing curriculum science curriculum and even learning through net flicks and watching shows online. So hope that these help you out. These are some of the stages that have been receiving the most traffic lately on my site and I wanted to make sure that you were aware of these resources. This message will probably come down at some point once this cove. Nineteen outbreak has subsided. But until then it'll remain here in the feed. So that fanny one else comes along and happens to notice it. They know that there are additional resources available. I hope that if you have started homeschooling because of this that you you need to realize that homeschooling out of fear is not going to be as beneficial so if you have the opportunity to reassess whether or not you're going to send your kids to school or private school at a time when we're not living in this state of fearfulness. I hope that you'll consider home schooling if not and the public school system where the private school system is the way that you choose to educate your children. Nobody's going to look down on you. I hope you all stay safe and healthy during this trying time in the world. God bless you. Thanks for listening. Thanks for sticking ears. Let's go out there and get your home schools wired..

"Carrie I actually didn't know about the Levi's smart jacket before we start on this episode. But I really like what Paul said advanced in technology. Don't always have to be in the service of creating new gadgets or even types of interaction. They can sometimes be about making things. We already love better. You know people have been talking about the Internet of things not for very long time but we are at this moment. Where it's on the verge of coming together in a really powerful way which is enabled by better and more data from the objects that we even wear which is where five G. could really play a key role that's right enough episode we coined a new Formula Five G. Plus a equals Iot and when we think about things and what things could be made better by being connected retail and in particular clothing of a huge opportunities. Yeah and the IOT can be much bigger than smart. Tv's as we build more robust wireless network. The Internet of things could expand even to items that. We don't think have an affinity for technology like a denim jacket or even sportswear later in this episode. We're going to hear from another pool. Pull WHISPER WHO's director of athletic performance at that over there they're creating connected. Clothing captures data to help drive performance and I spoke with Natasha. Frank who is the founder of a company called Eon and she has a very different vision of what the future of retail looks like and involves something called the circular economy while well before we get there. Let's circle back to pull dylan at leave is because it turns out the aspiration for the smart jacket is about much more than one product in fact the goal is to create a more sustainable fashion system. It happened to me yesterday. Were I just grabbed what I thought was by my favorite jacket through it on realize? Oh shoot I've actually put on. My car jacket was at a glance indistinguishable from a conventional. You know ten year old jacket that I had created an amazing digital opportunity that can disappear into Levi's assortment so seamlessly by design that it makes it difficult to find. I was surprised to learn. This wasn't the first foray into connected clothing Levis. There is no in the late nineties of very early form of a connected jacket looking back with hindsight of twenty years. It's quaint I'm proud that we were so bold as to go into that space but yeah it could hold five. Mp threes the Levi. Smart Jacket Lorsch. In Two Thousand. Sixteen and pool was the lead designer. Just like some of the first denim items. It was built with a clear purpose in this instance to keep people safe. There wasn't about integrating textile interface and little teeny tiny washable computers for the hell of it but it was to make people's. Daily Commute on their bikes safer is up is on. The road is at the beautiful environment around you instead of is on this little tiny phone when you're traveling about twenty five miles an hour on a pretty dangerous bumpy pothole-ridden Street in San Francisco and so this idea that a lot of what we do on our phones is purely about touch and not necessarily about visual feedback a little bit of haptic a little vibration maybe a little glow of light on the cuff of a garment to acknowledge that a task has been understood in executed. Maybe we could use this opportunity to build the interface into something familiar. Not between our is our finger and this phone but really just a gesture and the garment that we would already be wearing otherwise when Paul talks about these capabilities of jacket like a that. You've left your phone in a restaurant you left it. Doesn't you think about clothing in a new light and so we started to narrow down this opportunity for interface. Just those abilities that were necessary for people who are on a bike so the idea that we were taking a device that could do by putting it in the pocket and Bluetooth through a garment to a space on the left. Cuff that has been abled touch interface. So that you're only doing those things that are enabled through this technology and thereby increasing your safety on your bike ride. The more exciting thing for me is that six months after the jacket was first released. We've been looking at how it was being used and we were realizing that we designed something great for the week day urban commuting cyclists but wanted to levite product seven days a week so we ended up thinking of what are the functions that could enable this Jackson become a favourite weekend jacket and it was Interface with Uber and lift. It was making this jacket a mechanism to manage your your ridesharing service and that new ability was introduced six months after the garment I came to market and I'm not promising with jacket. Does everything right now. There's you know upwards of twenty distinct abilities and that's growing constantly fee is. The retail industry has been built around selling you new products but one of the things that pull has worked to achieve is making sure that connect to products are adaptable and essentially upgradable. That's something entirely new for the retail space and instead we were saying the design you have is good sound but let's give you another ability. Let's give fashion in the form of Digital Improvement. So that overnight. Everyone's just got a little push notification. Hey check your jacket. It does something new but also showed that fashion doesn't necessarily have to be a new object but can be something as simple as new capabilities added to garment. That's already in the closet. The true opportunity for this kind of wearable technology a platform rather than as a gadget. It's starting to become evident because two years on when we released Takhar version to all of those new abilities and upgrades we're still pushed out to the two year old jacket. There was already in the closet of the people who were early. Adopters so close. Become kind of platform that enables connectivity known any devices but the browns the created them. We can imagine new economies in new systems of commerce. That don't necessarily rely on new objects and so I like people to think about the opportunity for connect clothing and digital platforms embedded into garments as one of the ways that we can approach a more sustainable fashion system. If this is happening now it does make you wonder woman happened when networks become fuster for. What we're doing speed is always better more speed better. Great yes I think that's understood. More power is also better. The more we are asking the garment at the more asking garments to collaborate with devices the more power were needing if the jackets talking to the phone and doing stuff can the gene be harvesting the energy of walking or skipping or dancing or any of the things that you know that we could be capturing some of that value. I think what we all need to do is get better at communicating the opportunity and encouraging people to understand new values familiar objects and then. Eventually they're gonNA come to expect those values we object Levi smart jackets connect your phone by Bluetooth. And of course. Your phone is connected to the worst network. So it's fascinating to think how the adoption of five G. Carnaval even more functions in connected clothing one of our guests from early. In the series Andrea Goldsmith of Stanford wireless lab talked about. Exactly this Fudgy. Networks are being built with the bandwidth support many more devices and advances in low-powered sensors could one day clothing to speak directly to the network without needing to route through the phone. Perhaps before long we'll be able to leave home without our phones without this. Fear of being completely disconnected are close. Could be the thing giving us access to essential communication. Also find the idea of by one jacket that can be upgraded with software to be really innovative pool. Points out that. As connected products provide more functions they become more relevant than owning a new physical lived and that could help us break the Faucet. Fashion Paradigm has been quite detrimental to the environment. We'll think about our grandparents our even our parents who took things to the repairs when was to repair shop. You know now. We're more likely to just buy something new so talking to Paul. It's really cool to think about an alternative that could be right around the corner so one junction connected clothing is that it can make your life easier or safer. Another is that it could improve your performance by gathering data. And that's what I discussed with pull win. Spurs at under armour decided to try and see if we could take what we know from working highest level of professional spoiled. And could we democratize this? Give it to everybody. Could we take this knowledge and scientific principles and whether you're a sixteen year old girl wanting to make of all Steve Volleyball team or a young kid in Brazil wanting to make some kind of soccer team is? Can we give you the tools? Can we give you the edge to get their foster? This pool is the head of the innovation lab at under Obama and an expert in performance. Over the course of his career. He's worked at the highest level of professional sport. The Seattle seahawks the Toronto Maple leafs and Newcastle Football. Club or soccer's over here as well as athletes like Tom. Brady and Steph Curry now at under pool works to create connected clothing that can use data to boost athletic performance. We WanNa make athletes better. We want to give people the tools and an just basically make them aware that you know good footwear and good a Powell and having smart fabrics can enhance that journey and give them relevant context allies data at the right time we spend a lot of time understanding consumer journeys and understanding how people currently engaging in digital environments what. Poor Win Spurs saying echoes. What pull dillinger of Levi's said successfully integrating new technologies like five G. into existing products and industries starts with understanding user needs and around aroma? Those users run the gamut from people like Karen me to people like Steph. Curry are traveling. Across hundreds of time. Zones across the season and training really hard obviously. He's pushing his body to different limits. A new limits and has to find different ways to adapt but at the end of the day. It's it's the same for the General Guy in the street. You know they get up early. They tend to family. They do a full day's work. They travel it get stuck in traffic. They're stress and still having to find time to exercise eat. Well SLEEP WELL. So the challenges are the same. No matter whether you're trying to win the MVP the League in the NBA. All whether you're trying to just perform and keep yourself healthy and well and being a good parent or a good friend or a good husband or whatever so essiet is very much the same with a ton of overlap which expect a great deal of our athletic clothes. But we don't typically think of them items that can increase performance or productivity.

"Today on the wired homeschool having interview with Noah tester, he's the host of the history of Vikings, and lessons from a home schooler, and we talk about his experience, as a home schooler, and how he turned his podcast into his full-time job. That's coming up on the wired home school. Joining me on the podcast today is Noah Tetzschner from the history of Vikings, and lessons from a home schooler. No, welcome to the podcast. Thanks so much for having me, John. It's really a delight to be here. I've been a fan of this podcast for quite some time. So to be able to speak with you is real treat thanks. I appreciate it. I heard about you from day, Jackson actually heard you interviewed on his podcast. And I think you ended up reaching out to me before I ended up reaching out to you for for this interview. So. The, the, the, the mutual connection, they're very thankful to today for, for making me aware of, of you out there. So you are eighteen you just graduated homeschool. Yes. And. We have all kinds of directions that we can go with this interview. But I wanna start with. What you told me was that you were. Basically, you spent three years of high school in private school. And in for your senior year you decided to come back to home schooling. What was it? You wanted to go into private school digit parents, put you in private school. What prompted that? Yeah. Yep, slightly. So I was home schooled from first grade up to eighth grade. And then for freshman year sophomore year and heart of junior year, I went to a classical Christian private school in Wisconsin where I live, and that was very much. My parents decision I would say, you know nothing against them. Of course I was a good experience. And I'm very grateful for it. I learned a lot, but myself I wasn't too resistant. Of course, I had always loved homeschooling and had nothing but positive experiences up until that point when I went to private school. For me. Really? You know, I didn't understand you know why I would go to private school. I suppose for my parents, perhaps, in a way, it was one of those things that homeschooling parents often encounter, you know, will I'm not smart enough to teach my children blank, you know, perhaps for my parents, it was science and, you know, more advanced math and that was in parts. You know, the reason a lot of our homeschooling, you know, fellow homeschooling families and friends that we'd grown up with head sent their kids to that particular private school, part, time anyways. So it was kind of a natural experience for me. I learned a lot there. But perhaps what makes me different from a lot of my, you know, sort of pro classical education, even homeschooling advocate, contemporaries is that I really the core of. Homeschooling that I believe, is most beneficial, and for me, personally, this is my personal experience. What I've gained with home schooling is the fact that it is not institutionalized learning. The fact that you have time freedom. You have location freedom. You have the freedom, perhaps most of all to follow your interests in design a style of learning that number one and stills desire of learning in students, but also allows you to follow your interests. Now, of course, there are some things that one has to learn. You know, while being educated math reading, and writing of just basic things that allow human beings to function in the twenty th century. But there's different ways that we can go about teaching those, and I think that we should design for home schooling students away of teaching them, that allows them themselves to become teachers and allows them to learn things in a way that interests them. Most of all, so for me private school. It did teach me some things it really gave me an insight, I suppose as to the other end of it. If you will, what home what the opposite of home schooling, you know, more of an institutionalized learning environment. It was a good experience there. I learned a great deal again. I'm still friends with many of the people there, including the headmaster's family, but for me, I'm a homeschooling at heart. I'm a home schooler at heart. Always have been always will be. And I just love the freedom. Him that I found in hopes going. Now, you mentioned the freedom and being able to design really basically design your own curriculum and, and have a home school student follow their interests. You became interested in Vikings did that happen before you went off to private school. Or while you were in private school went when did that interest occur because I would think that if you ask most young boys, they would think Vikings are cool because they think they wear helmets with horns on them. But, but for the most part, it wouldn't be something that they would decide to start a podcast around now. Yeah. Well, I had always loved history. That's just been my biggest passion life for as long as I can remember and I left. The private school in that would probably have been wanna say, October of junior year Tober of eleventh grade for me. I just graduated senior year graduated homeschooling as ice schooler just a week ago of but anyways, I left in October of twenty seventeen and then I started my podcast in March of twenty eighteen so just a few months after I left and, you know, once I left school, you know, I was starting to realize that, you know, the end is near I'm going to graduate. And you know, it's either I go off to college, or I find something else to do with my life, essentially sort of what every young person goes through, and I knew early on that college wasn't for me. Definitely, you know, people can gain so much from going to university. But just for me personally. It was not my Cup of tea STS. So I thought it was really cool, if I could sort of create an excuse for me, not to have to go to college, and I knew I had wanted to start a podcast about two years before I actually did I never got around to doing it. I had most of the equipment that my parents had bought for me for Christmas Bill two years ago when I first started talking about it, and I knew I wanted to start a history podcast, so I did, and I thought, well, you know what am I going to do about, I could do about anything, the Napoleonic wars World War Two, but Vikings are something that I had sort of been interested in and they were kind of mysterious to me, there was not really any Viking, podcasts around, and that was always sort of an air in history that I just didn't know about, like apart from, like, you know, the did the Vikings wear horned helmets, which they didn't, by the way, and, you know, sale in long ships and raid, you know, there's gotta be more to this sort of era in medieval history, and I started. My podcast, the history of Ike ings, and I, you know, learned the ropes of recording, and with a lot of trial and error got everything going and got a website up and started reaching out to guests for my podcast and erase Alie. I had just written some scripts in just sort of had this narrative history style podcast, but as time went on the, the show quickly within, it's like I two weeks became an interview, based podcast and just one thing led to the next and every episode of the history of making at least just about every episode is featured a conversation with a scholar that specializes in some way with the Viking age. So I've had professors from Oxford and Harvard, and Yale and just all over the World University of Iceland, you name, it just all over the world and they've been able to, you know, share things that they've dedicated their lives to researching different things of old Norse literature in Viking, poetry, you name it, and I've been able to. Discuss that on my podcast. So, so you basically decided to do history of Aikins, because you wanted to learn about Vikings. Yes. And what better way to do that than be able to directly talk to the experts on the topic? That's that's great. That's a really a great concept. And it'd be nice if a lot, I think a lot of parents who are. Podcast savvy, if they would direct their kids in a direction like that. And say look, you can actually talk to people who are scholars on the topic instead of just reading their book, you can actually talk to the person who wrote the book, that's a great concept. Well, thank you. I've, I've often said to my parents, you know, I just think it's so cool that I and by the way for everyone is listening when I started the history of kings. I knew nothing about the Viking age of that, Aaron history, I just wanted to learn more about it as you said, John, but, you know, I've often said, you know, and I say this, you know, with humility that, you know, all of my podcasts interviews, I'm kind of fortunate to get these private history lessons from, you know, scholars across the world. So I do agree at home schooling. You know, that's a concept, which could be what I did could be applied to any, you know, homeschooling family in any home. Schooling student. Absolutely. No your parents when they home schooled you early on. Did they I was like to kind of find out what kind of technology? Parents used if any I know that sometimes especially parents who, who are more involved with kind of the whole classical. Homeschooling. They, they tend to not use a lot of technology. But some of them do what, what besides a you know, basic, computer and things like that. What were there, any was there, any online curriculum that you were using or, or did your did you parents, make use of a particular videos or particular websites, as they were homeschooling you? Yep. -solutely. So we did for those of you who are familiar classical conversations for many years before I went to private school and classical conversations, it's been a few years since I did it. But I would assume they're even more. So now at the time that was very technology savvy, I would say, even more so than most traditional, you know, homeschooling, curriculum, which it seems to me, you just you're buying bundles of books and textbooks. Nothing wrong with all. It's all about your learning style and classical conversations when I did it. You know, of course you had your. Your books that you bought and there was a sign reading, you know, various, you know what people would call the great books, great pieces of literature, and so forth and classical conversations for those who aren't familiar is a classical Christian sort of homeschooling, worldwide community nowadays. But they had an app, you know, they have an app for certainly there like eighth grade and younger students that I was in at the time, and that has all of your memorization things classical conversations is very keen on memorization particularly for younger students. So the app, we used daily, and there were, of course, you know, just a plethora of videos and interactive sort of things you could do with that. So yet, CC classical conversations was very tech heavy, I would say, we use that for many years. Now getting back to your, your podcast, you had mentioned that there were not very many podcasts out there about Vikings did did you get any people who would listen to.

"Today on the wired home school. I'm going to talk about five traits your child can't learn from textbooks or online curriculum. That's coming up on the wired home school. Welcome to the wired home school. I'm your host John Wilkerson bringing you tech, tools and tips for home schooling, the digital generation and a lot like last week this week isn't a very technical episode. It really doesn't cover any tech or any hardware or any internet safety issues. I wanted to address them things that necessarily don't always come up when we're talking about home-schooling, our children, we want to make sure we have the right curriculum. We wanna make sure we have the right textbooks and online resources the right tools. But there are just some things that cannot be learned from textbooks. And I'm going to talk about five of those today. Now, this is by no means an exhaustive list. It's just listed. I quickly put together you could probably double or even try. Triple this list, if you wanted to, but I just wanted to hit on these five things because I feel like that these might be the top ones, you might think differently. But for me, these are what I feel. I'm trying to instill in my kids outside of their education outside of transferring my face to them, these are the other things that I wanna make sure that they have. So the first thing is grit grit is determination, and that can sometimes differentiate someone from another person it can differentiate your child from others, especially in activities sporting activities or activities that require any kind of concentration over a long period of time. Sometimes the person with the most grit gets. The best results. There are a lot of people out there who are talented who maybe play piano, better than have more natural talent or who played a sport better than your child. But if your child has grit and determination and is determined to succeed, they can often overcome that lack of talent with just grit with knowing how to stick to it and stay with something until it gets done. I remember years ago. My kids were at a piano recital and the young lady who was finishing. She was a senior at the time. And and this was her final year and she just played beautifully. She was playing a very very complicated piece. It sounded wonderful, and everyone was complimenting her on it. And she said to. To I don't know if it was my daughter or another one of the girls that was there. She was she was very humbly accepting the accolades, but she said, I don't understand how you can memorize your pieces. I can never do that. And so one of the things that happens with kittens having my kids, especially is if they're learning a piece, they might not be able to sight read it and play beautifully the first or the second time that they see it. But over time having constantly played it. They've memorized the peace. And that was something that this person who had a lot of great natural talent looked at my kids in even other kids there and said, wow, I wish I could do that. I wish I could memorize a piece like that. And so grit and determination is very very important. A second thing that is important is cooperation learning to corral cooperate. We hear a lot about self made men and women. But really isn't anyone who did it all themselves? If you look beyond the facade of the person who says, I did it myself. I did it my way you'll see many times when that person needed to work with others in order to obtain success and any we talk about this. When we talked about CEO's any CEO will tell you that they have to find the right people to work with in order to succeed. Any sports star needs a team behind them in order to win games. You hear it so often about how talented LeBron James is. But oftentimes he don't have. A team that will back him up. If Tom Brady played for another team besides the patriots. He might do. Well, but he might not get the same results if he's unable to work with and cooperate with the players around him the quarterback can't win a game by himself, very important position. But you need more than just a quarterback out on their field in order to win a football game. So being able to cooperate and work with those teammates is very very important for anyone your child is there growing up you may notice that your child likes to work on their own. So it's important for you to put your child in situations where he or she needs to work with someone else to learn to cooperate because anyone who's used to doing things on their own and excelling on their own. On who suddenly needs to rely on others in order to get something completed. And excel that can be frustrating sometimes, but it's an important quality that we need to teach. Our kids is learning how to work with others learning how to cooperate. The third trait is curiosity. Now, some children are just born naturally curious that wanna know how things work they wanna know, what makes things tick, they wanna know how the world works. They want to learn more about it. These are people who are naturally drawn towards inventing things, and they can be big thinkers who sometimes challenged the status quo and go on to do remarkable things. But yet there are some children who they they learn only enough. To get by. And they're never really curious about something just below the surface a surface level of of knowledge. Just just. They have to this no interest in learning more. And yes, while I think there are some people who are just more curious than others. Teaching our children to look beyond what they see and look for answers that are not necessarily always on the surface. But just to dig a little bit deeper sometimes when your child digs a little bit deeper. They find something that they're passionate about and that they can run with. And this curiosity is sometimes has to be developed in our children. The kids who are naturally curious are going to just dig and dig and dig and keep looking at more and more things and sometimes they can get sucked sucked into a black hole and. They can't come out of it. But

"wired" Discussed on The Wired Homeschool

"Today. We're talking about what parents and home schoolers need to know about stadia by Google. That's coming up on the wired home school. Welcome to the wired home school. I'm your host John Wilkerson, bringing tech tools and tips for homeschooling the digital generation and today, Michael prints from because family is joining me. Michael, welcome to the podcast. Hello and welcome to your own podcast to years. Well, I guess so this is going to be a real quick episode is kind of what parents need to know what home schoolers need to know about stadia, Michael you want to share with the listeners. What stadia is sure stadia is a new gaming platform and streaming platform from Google. And so it's a way to create an account log in play video games through their server and stream in that way. The idea is connecting those who enjoy watching streams with the games that they're watching and using YouTube. Stadia together in that way. So it's a it's an interesting concept. There are other things out there that allow you to do this sort of thing. But nothing in the way that Google is is looking at doing it. So right in the the key thing here is the streaming component. You don't have to buy a console. It works on your desktop. It works on your laptop. It will work on select smartphones, and tablets, it will work through the chrome cast that you have plugged into your television. And they're also going to be really seeing a controller that connects wireless wirelessly to your network that can also do the streaming as well. So there's no need to go out on by a five hundred or six hundred dollar console all everything all the heavy lifting. So to speak is handled. I Google servers. But there are some curious things about this. There's there things we know. And there are things we don't know some of the things that we do know right now is that I mentioned the multiple devices. You're not going to need to download games or wait for updates. The thing that I like here is being able to use any USB controller that you already have connected to your computer. So you don't have to go out and buy any any new hardware. In fact, the demonstration that they showed it was running on a Chromebook. So you don't even need a super high powered device in your home, and it's coming out this year. And that's really, you know, except for the fact that you need a high speed internet connection, and it's stream and up to four K HD are at sixty frames per second, which I think most people aren't really as concerned with. That's really pretty much. What we know at this point. We don't have a price. We know what the price of the controller is we don't know what games are gonna be available at launch. And so I think a lot of people have questions about stadia and. I mean, we're really just speculating at this point exactly go ahead. Yeah. There are there's a lot of questions and one of the big things that they talk about with this type of gave me there's another website. And I haven't been able to find it. I was getting ads for it for ever recently on Facebook and stuff there's a there's another thing that does this. That's out there already away to play video games through the server of the company that runs it through their website. You can play any game on MAC or PC or whatever it didn't work on mobile phones or anything. But. But the thing that they talk about is latency which would be when you hit the button on the controller or your keyboard? How long it takes for what's happening on the screen to react to what you're doing on your controller? That is a question that some of the folks Google have tried to answer already. But do you can see some of the demos? They've been able to do with stadia. They've there's video that's frame by frame showing the delay from hitting the space bar or hitting a controller button in swertz swinging in its amended several milliseconds, which is which can slow you down playing a game. And if you're playing cross platform against someone who's playing on a you know hardware to hardware connection in their on their controller to to XBox controller to play station, you're going to be slower than them if you have latency problems because of your internet connection, or because of just the server connection that day on or any other thing that using like this. So that's something. They really have to figure out to and they're trying to stay. No, it's going to be just as fast as simultaneous as close as simultaneous as possible. But it's got a remains to be seen just like so much. Like you said with stadia remains to be seen. How much is it gonna cost is a big one? You know, you know, forty fifty
