The GliderCell Podcast

About This Show

Show Info:

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: 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.
