As most of you are aware, we had a crash to forums and were down for over two days a while back. We did have to do an upgrade to the vbulletin software to fix the forums and that has created changes, VB no longer provide the hybrid or threaded forums. There are some issues/changes to the forums we are not able to fix or change. Also note the link address change, please let friends and posters know of the changed link to the forums. For now this is the only link available, https://forums.carm.org/vb5/ but if clicking on forum on carm.org homepage it will now send you to this link. (edited to add https: now working.

Again, we are working through some of the posting and viewing issues to learn how to post with the changes, you will have to check and test the different features, icons that have changed. You may also want to go to profile settings,since many of the notifications, information in profile, also to update/edit your avatar by clicking on avatar space, pull down arrow next to login for user settings.

Edit to add "How to read forums, to make it easier."
Pull down arrow next to login name upper right select profile, or user settings when page opens to profile,select link in tab that says Account. Then select/choose options, go down to Conversation Detail Options, Select Display mode Posts, NOT Activity, that selection of Posts will make the pages of discussions go to last post on last page rather than out of order that happens if you choose activity threads. Then be sure to go to bottom and select SAVE Changes in your profile options. You can then follow discussions by going through the pages, to the last page having latest responses. Then click on the other links Privacy, Notifications, to select viewing options,the forums get easier if you open all the tabs or links in your profile, user settings and select options. To join Super Member, pull down arrow next to login name, select User Settings and then click on tab/link at top that says Subscriptions.

Thank you for your patience and God Bless.

  • Theorizing vs. Observation in Education

    How much of education (child development, curriculum, behavior management, etc.) should or can be based on adult theorizing vs. adult observation of children? For instance, how much of physical education should or can be based on adults thinking should learn this or that physical skill or that they learn it in such and such a way vs. observing what children are naturally inclined to do and observing what methods, equipment, etc. best facilitates these desires? Hopefully this question makes sense as it is late haha
    Can't remember why I have a secular moniker, but I am a Christian just so you know. Per Admin: Evangelism: Rule 24: .... Posters seeking to debate Evangelical Christians should take their discussions or questions to the appropriate forum, apologetics/etc., Atheists/Agnostics/Secularists, or those continuing to debate Evangelicals on the inappropriate forums will be assigned to the ATH/AGN/Secular forums as a Secular Member.

    Might want to rephrase the OP, not sure exactly what you are asking. I don't think the observation and theorizing are separate, they ought to work in tandem. Education science uses both.

      Hmm point taken. One example is developing curriculum. It usually involves adults theorizing what children should be learning or how they should be learning, then studying how best to implement these methods and achieve these goals. Alternatively, we could observe children in an environment made for them based on knowledge and observation of their natural development in the same vein that we make observational studies of other animals in their natural habitat. The only difference is that the details of this environment must be determined and created whereas an animal will by biological definition live in its natural habitat if it has not been transplanted. Perhaps that made more sense?

        could it just be that what you mean is the difference between what actually is and what only exists in a teacher's imagination and in his textbook - wincam
