While the current educational system has its roots in the industrial age and a mechanical mindset, the converging crises of our time call for a new, more holistic approach to learning that supports the unfolding of and integration around each person's deepest potential. Drawing from interdisciplinary research in human development, scientist and educationist Sraddhalu Ranade outlines the deeper principles around which a more holistic approach to education can be practically realized today, and discusses methods and techniques that foster in both children and adults a revivified sense of wonder and a more soulful engagement with the world.

Hello Friends and Family! It’s so exciting to have you with us today. It’s our hope that you experience God and get to know us a little while you’re here. At Twin Cities we want everyone to know that this is a safe place to hear about the love God wants us all to experience through Him. We want to warmly welcome you. Each week during our prayer time we ask God to speak right to the heart of the needs of every person here. God is personal, and He cares. Will you open your mind today and receive from Him exactly what He knows you need? We’re in a series called “Encouragement for Today’s Family.” Just as I’ve never heard a person who said, “I get all the encouragement I need,” I’ve never heard that from a family either. Let’s face it, forming a family system that works smoothly is just difficult. With all the stresses, competition for time, complexities and cultural forces, building a family is difficult. Therefore, we’re devoting these weeks to giving families a boost. While you’re here today, I invite you to stop by our Next Step Bookstore to look at the books I picked to help us learn more about ways to build encouragement into our families. You can also pick up some Lanna Coffee. The proceeds of each purchase go to help the Northern Hill Tribes of Thailand who grow the coffee for their livelihood and benefit our Student Ministries Scholarship Fund. Looking for encouragement with you, Pastor Ron+ More details
Hello Friends and Family! Dads, today is your day, and we want you to know we celebrate and honor your efforts and role in our families. We are so grateful for what you do and want you to know how valuable and needed you are. Thank you. Today’s message was designed by a survey we took of dads as we began this series six weeks ago. You responded with honesty and openness, and we ask you to please receive this service as our gift to you on this day. We’re in a series called “Encouragement for Today’s Family.” Just as I’ve never heard a person who said, “I get all the encouragement I need,” I’ve never heard that from a family either. It was eye opening when we poured over the results of the survey, that appreciation and encouragement were two of the things dad said he needed most. We have prayed that you would be encouraged while you’re here and that your family will see how important this is to you. While you’re here today, I invite you to stop by our Next Step Bookstore to look at the books I picked to help us learn more about ways to build encouragement into our families. You can also pick up some Lanna Coffee. The proceeds of each purchase go to help the Northern Hill Tribes of Thailand who grow the coffee for their livelihood and benefit our Student Ministries Scholarship Fund.

This lecture is intended for students who specialize in the teaching of English to speakers of other languages (TESOL) and is delivered as part of the MA TESOL and MA TEFL courses. It carefully examines an important concept related to materials development for English language teaching - 'authenticity'. Authenticity can mean different things to different people. For example in a TESOL context we talk about 'authentic language' in some cases meaning language used by native speakers of English communicating amongst themselves. But the idea has been further developed to include any language that is recognizably English used by anyone for communicative purposes. For some analysts language used in the classroom can never be regarded as authentic as it simulates 'real language' used in 'real situations' outside the class. Others disagree, arguing that classroom language is authentic in its own right. Why does this matter to language teachers? Because decisions that concern the type of language that needs to be taught greatly affect syllabus content and the design of teaching and learning materials. 'Authentic' is a label often used to describe the materials themselves, but once again it is highly ambiguous. For example, graded readers which contain simplified language and content are often classified as 'non-authentic' even though they are clearly self-standing texts. 'David Copperfield' may be recognized as an authentic text but what about the simplified or the comic-book version? The 'authentic' label is also applied to certain language-learning activities and tasks. But which ones can justifiably be included or excluded? It could reasonably be argued that asking learners to look at 'real' railway timetables when they have no need to catch a train is completely different from a situation where this is demonstrably the case. The debate surrounding this highly problematic concept continues.To find out more about the International Academy go to: http://www.essex.ac.uk/internationalacademy+ More details
