Safe Rooms: Is Your Safe Room Safe? (Special Episode)
This podcast was originally published May 28, 2013, eight days after the devastating Moore Oklahoma tornado. As we enjoy watching the green buds appear, the flowers beginning to bloom, or the children out playing outdoors we should also be aware that severe weather might happen at any time. Thunderstorms, tornadoes, and lightning are some of Nature’s most violent storms; therefore having a safe room is important.(http://remarkablechatter.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/Screen-Shot-2014-03-20-at-10.06.22-AM-300x256.png) However, is your safe room safe? The safest place for school children during severe weather is a designed/engineered storm shelter that meets Federal Emergency Management Agency guidelines. Corey Schultz is among the top designers in the country and has lead PBArchitects in designing 50 shelters, protecting the lives of thousands of students and residents of Kansas. Corey is a member on the review committee in the establishment of FEMA 361 guidelines and associated benefit cost analysis software. He has recently served as a voting member on the International Code Council (ICC) Consensus Committee on Storm Shelters, which regulates “the design, construction and installation of safe, reliable and economical storm shelters.” His advocacy of education to other professionals and consultants ensures many more shelters will be designed for the preservation of individuals and communities across the country. Allan Milbrandt another PBA Architect, specializing in Educational Planning & Design, also discusses what can be created in new construction as well has transforming you existing structure into a safe room. If you have a need to make the typical classroom into a safe room check out FEMA 361, which has an assessment checklist for comparing one space to another and compare one building to another. There are also grants that you can apply for to help with funding of your safe room For assistance in grant management and acquisition contact Clelia McCrory at Essdack, 1500 E. 11th Ave. Suite 200, Hutchinson, KS 67501 620-663-9566 Be sure to subscribe to receive an email of future podcasts.

KASB, Attorney Angie Stallbaumer And KASB Technology Director, Kay Tibbs – Teach The Students To “Drive” Their Online Presence Safely (Cody Talks Education #8)
(http://remarkablechatter.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/Screen-Shot-2014-03-11-at-10.19.40-AM.png)Whether technology is brought into the classroom or not, the student will be a digital citizen for the rest of their life. Part of and educator's job is to guide students towards responsible citizenship in the digital world… by introducing electronic devices into the classroom; students can be shown to become responsible digital citizens. We can address cyber-bullying and build a sense of online community so that students understand that their digital footprint stays with them. The students’ ability to think critically can be increased by teaching them to differentiate between reliable and unreliable sources. And lets not forget that by bringing technology into the classroom, guidance can be given so students learn the responsible way to use technology and social media in their lives. This cannot be done if we ban technology and keep it out! Join Cody as he visits with KASB Technology Director, Kay Tibbs, and KASB Attorney, Angie Stallbaumer about how classroom practices can teach the students to “drive” social media the safe way.

“What is a STEAMmaker camp?” (Cody Talks Education #7)
(http://remarkablechatter.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/STEAMmaker-logo-Vande-300x277.png) I have been hearing about this "camp" that Ginger Lewman is putting on this summer and had to have more details, once I started getting them, I thought others would want to know about it as well. I don't have any credentials to have an opinion, but I have had the mindset for a long time that our Education system needs more "hands on", getting dirty types of learning. I think hands on stuff is actually what inspires kids to want to learn... and if we send high school graduates out into the world with a true "want" to learn... they will be fine. I think you will agree that Ginger's STEAMmaker camp is a huge step in that direction. https://essdack.org/STEAMmaker (https://essdack.org/STEAMmaker) "You Have a Non-Math kid? Think again!
