Education Podcasts

GliderCell is a mashup of thoughts, ideas, projects, plans and music. It's also a new term to describe creativity arising out of chaos. It's about the unexpected, and new combinations. Think of this show as your "mobile think tank." GliderCell is hosted by Lee Chazen. You can read his latest book here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07QYBR5BM More about Lee below: Lee Chazen is an educational content developer and writer who does consulting work under the name GliderCell. Chazen studied political science at Colorado State University, also receiving a minor in history and concentration in Russian and East Central European Studies. In the months following Hart’s presidential campaign, Chazen became a campaign manager for a California state assembly race where he simultaneously helped to coordinate a trade mission of Silicon Valley executives to the former Soviet Union. Chazen moved on to a career teaching high school world history, U.S. government and speech and debate. Work in his early teaching career resulted in the formation of a “bottom up” teaching methodology where students would have a hand in creating their own learning experience. The Global Challenge Project continued for seven years and formed the basis for Thriving on the Edge of Chaos: An Argument for a Complex Adaptive Theory of Education. In this paper, Chazen argues for game-based learning environments where students progress through a course in the form of constructive game playing. As a French horn player since the age of 7, Chazen has played with various symphony orchestras, wind ensembles and brass quintets. Chazen’s hobbies include running, hiking and disc golf. Author of: Could Chaos Theory Provide us Some Answers to Our Divided Political System? The Connection Between Creativity and Mental Illness What is Consilience? Interesting Diversions: The formation of a hiking and brainstorming group called HikeStorming. See Episode One of the GliderCell podcast for an example of a HikeStorming session. Experimental music, combining French Horn with electronic dance music, e.g. The French Horn EDM / House Music Experiment Contact: theglidercell@gmail.com

Overriding Divisions: How People with Different Worldviews Can Learn to Get Along with Each Other

7/15/2020
You know how the brain has a convenient way of categorizing or separating things? For example, we have different classes at school -- math, science, English, social studies. We have different buildings for some of those same departments at universities. We categorize or divide people by class, race, where they live, how they talk, level of education. Well, what if we found out that, while those classifications are convenient because it makes it so we don’t have to think so much about things,...

Strange Customs and Awkward Encounters

5/15/2020
Like previous episodes, this one is an eclectic mix of stories and thoughts. But, there was a theme - strange customs and awkwardness. For example, You flip someone off by mistake. Why is there no hand symbol for retracting that? I mean, they think you're an idiot, but they also don't know that you might think that of yourself too -- if, perhaps, it was done too quickly. And why does everything have to be so definitive? Normal people require some time to reach a decision, except in the case...

Shelter In Place Audio Journal with Lee Chazen, Episode 1

4/20/2020
It started off as an experiment. I was walking around a local park early one morning and started recording some notes into my phone as a way of documenting some ideas. The further I went, the more the ideas and stories started to flow. It felt like this might just be a good routine to get into during the whole lockdown. So, I decided to keep it going. But then I wondered what would happen if I just didn't care if others listened in. I mean, I might stumble onto something funny... or...

Ep. 3. How did an eye dropper ruin a horn player's career? Plus, more stories, thoughts and ideas.

4/19/2020
More thoughts, ideas and stories to give your mind something to do during the global lockdown. On Episode 3, you will get answers to these and other questions... perhaps. A bathysphere? Really? Why do we need themes and formats? Some of our brains are more like hyperlinking systems. What is consilience? Why do we have to be one type of person? Can a cello player be an MMA fighter? Why isn’t there an olympics for people who can think and do athletic things? What happens when a comedy routine...

E004 - Underemployment

2/27/2018
We always hear about unemployment, but rarely hear about “underemployment.” Yet, there is likely a huge percentage of the population that is not working in a field related to their actual skills, abilities or interests. How many creative, educated or highly skilled people are working in their desired field? If they are, how many are actually making a living at it? How many of us can say we are rising up to a level where our best work or ideas are making a difference? What are the causes of...

What is experiential learning? What does it mean to re-imagine infrastructure? Are trees and forests intelligent? What is sperm-aplasia? Is the Great Pacific Garbage Patch a Polynesian Grunge band or is it something else? Lastly, is life one giant distraction or does it have purpose and meaning? All of this is discussed while walking the streets of Sacramento. Host Lee Chazen Guests Fred Klammt is the Operations Director at WinSol.

In Episode Zero you'll learn about the origin of the name and how chaos might be necessary for creativity.
