The Silicon Mountain Group, a network of technology professionals who live and work in the Tahoe/Truckee area, is pleased to welcome Linda and Patrick Grimes, Founders EduLock who discuss the concept of “learn to earn - in life and school.”
As Patrick Grimes explains “We are concerned parents hoping to provide a new alternative to managing electronic media devices so the technology can be embraced as positive instrument of advancement in day-to-day lives. What started out as a simple concept to intercept text messages with math problems has evolved into a whole new approach to learning and media device usage.
The new approach uses some of the most well-documented principles of operant conditioning as well as the brains reward activity center.
Our timing couldn't be any better because the American Academy of Pediatricians issued a statement (earlier in November) that parents should place their children "media" diets and doctors should begin recording media usage at regular visits.”
More information about this exciting new approach can be found at www.edulock.org.
The meeting will be on Monday, December 9, 6-8 pm at the Pizza on the Hill in Tahoe Donner at 11509 Northwoods Blvd, Truckee. A $5 fee includes pizza and soft drinks. Before and after the discussion, there will be time for networking with other technology people who live and work in the Tahoe-Truckee region.
This month’s event is co-sponsored by New Leaders (NewLeaders.com) and Clear Capital (ClearCapital.com). You can find the “Silicon Mountain” group on LinkedIn and Facebook.
