Gabe Mac has been making media and teaching game design for over a decade and in the time he has come to see the long list of inconsistencies between the world that exists (and will exist in the future) and the way way formal education prepares people for that future. The writing is very much on the wall for what needs to happen with the concept of school and Gabe is here to read the beautiful graphitti and tell us about the tools and the tricks to set our children free, to get “us” out of the way of their education. Follow along at home, listen to this season of Kitchen Table Conversations, this time feature Carine Middeldorp and Gabe Mac talking education and the future of learning.
A run down of what is going on, what has been going on and more importantly — what Im listening to and loving these days that I really think others would enjoy.
RLTS006 Facing and Fighting Terminal Cancer at 36
Whomever you are, wherever you are, chances are your life has been affected by cancer. In some cases we hear from those battling the illness, their triumphs, their tragedies, and all the wisdom and observations that are shared along the way. Other times people turn inward, they go quiet and get private in an effort to do what must be done.
A few short months ago Matthew Dons and his family got the news that he has cancer already in an advanced stage. Ever since then he has three major priorities in his life. Today on the podcast we are joined by Matthew to talk about what he is going through that many others out there may also be able to relate to. He will also talk about his funding campaign that needs your participation, to help him afford treatment that will give him more time to live.
