Study Abroad with Semester at Sea!

This past Summer, I had the wonderful opportunity to study abroad with Semester at Sea. It was a fantastic learning experience and I was able to make many new friends. I was on the MV Explorer for a month and was able to see seven countries. With this program, you have the ability to study about a particular concept and then experience it in the countries you visit. I took a class in education on board the ship. My class then had the opportunity to teach in Honduras and Trinidad and Tobago. This was my favorite experience during my voyage. I cannot express how fun it is to study on a cruise ship. If you have the chance, you should look into this program or any other Education Abroad program! I highly suggest that as an undergraduate student you study abroad. It truly is a life changing experience.

Game-based Learning

I am taking a Digital Game-Based Learning course this semester, and so far it has been really interesting.  We look at the ways that games can provide great learning opportunities. For a project, I had to create my own game.  I had previously created a non-educational game in another class, so I built off of that one for my educational game.  Play both games at the links below.

The Price of Peace Education

A week ago I spent the morning meeting with an Israeli cultural anthropologist and education scholar well-known for his work on Peace education, Prof. Zvi Beckerman. As soon as I entered his office, I immediately felt at home, as the books from some of my favorite rhetoricians-- Kenneth Burke, Chaim Perelman, and others-- were sitting right there on his shelf, piled up and in plain view.
