This program documents the rise of so-called &ldquo;personalized learning.&rdquo; It takes listeners to schools that are reinventing their approach to education, and explores how teaching and learning change when personalization replaces one-size-fits-all in the classroom.&nbsp;</span></div><p> Sun, 06 Oct 2013 23:00:00 +0000 34096 at http://redriverradio.org American Radioworks: One Child at a Time - Custom Learning in the Digital Age Louisiana Public Square: STEM Status - Science, Technology, Engineering & Math in Louisiana http://redriverradio.org/post/louisiana-public-square-stem-status-science-technology-engineering-math-louisiana <DIV><STRONG>Airs Sunday, July 7 at 6 p.m.&nbsp;</STRONG><SPAN style="LINE-HEIGHT: 1.5">How can Louisiana better equip its citizens for future STEM positions?</SPAN></DIV> <DIV><SPAN style="LINE-HEIGHT: 1.5">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;Occupations in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) are projected to grow by nearly 10% over the next five years. Experts estimate Louisiana alone will have 69,000 STEM job vacancies by 2018. But who will fill these positions?</SPAN></DIV> <DIV><SPAN style="LINE-HEIGHT: 1.5">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;Nationwide, more than 300,000 jobs are currently being left vacant because employers can’t find individuals skilled enough in STEM. In Louisiana, 40% of eighth-graders report never designing a science project. Only 3% of high-school seniors take advance college placement tests in science. While male students have shown a recent increased interest in STEM, Louisiana females’ interest has been decreasing since 2008.</SPAN></DIV> <DIV><SPAN style="LINE-HEIGHT: 1.5">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;So, how can Louisiana better equip its citizens for future STEM positions? Are Louisiana’s educators adequately prepared to teach STEM courses? And how can students be encouraged to pursue STEM careers? Louisiana Public Square looks for answers to these questions and more on “STEM Status: Science, Technology, Engineering &amp; Math in Louisiana.”</SPAN></DIV> <P> Sun, 07 Jul 2013 23:00:00 +0000 29788 at http://redriverradio.org Louisiana Public Square: STEM Status - Science, Technology, Engineering & Math in Louisiana American Radio Works: Keyboard College http://redriverradio.org/post/american-radio-works-keyboard-college <p><strong>How Technology is Revolutionizing Higher Education<br>Airs Monday, October 1 at 8:00 p.m.</strong>&nbsp; Digital technologies and the Internet are changing how many Americans go to college.

This hour of Radiolab, Jad and Robert meet humans and robots who are trying to connect, and blur the line. We talk to the world&#39;s most advanced robot, meet a man who fell in love with a chatbot, and argue with the inventor of Furby over whether a toy can ever really be &quot;alive.&quot; Tue, 08 May 2012 01:00:00 +0000 Jad Abumrad & Robert Krulwich 10704 at http://redriverradio.org Radiolab: Talking to Machines
