The Circle of Trust
You have to trust the person you know (the person behind the site)
because you can’t trust the blue link when anyone
as you well know can be a "dog" on the net.
Since the very beginning of the Web, there has been an issue of trust,” Gauch said, “because there has always been this ubiquitous ability for anyone to create and distribute information.
The Educational CyberPlayGround® builds confidence and trust about information obtained on the Web. You've got to stay the course, you've got to stand for something, or else you stand for nothing. This site is not just a meaningless profit center without a cultural mission statement.
This web site is an innovative dynamic model using the World Wide Web and integrating Literacy, Technology and the Arts, effecting a systemic change for the disenfranchised group of people created by illiteracy.
Bringing the arts to life on the Web, for all ages.
The Educational CyberPlayGround® provides the public, teachers, administrators, policy makers, parents, librarians, and home schoolers a "webliography" of links to educational resources in a wide range of subjects.
Focus on Folk Arts In Education:
Improving literacy through arts education and advocacy by providing collaborative and interdisciplinary resources for understanding the universal laws of perception, underlying the rhythms of both speech and music; world culture and our national culture.
Heart Work: Music is Language & Language is Music
- Teach Reading Using Playground Game Songs
1977 - The original research showed that students who were taught to read using playground game songs successfully raised their reading level and spelling levels by a few years in a few months. The Educational CyberPlayGround® was created to provide all the hard science that proves why this simple successful approach works. 2010 Research Confirms original findings that Motor And Cognitive Skills Are Improved By Hand-Clapping Songs.
- National Children's Folksong Repository NCFR
Integrate, Literacy Music and Technology into the classroom. Use the technology to collect Children's poetry, nursery rhymes, clap pattern chants and songs, playground game songs then have the kids add them to the NCFR database.This project teaches children to read and write Standard English and turns a destructive situation around by, addressing the root causes of social problems through a neutral, non judgmental process giving the child's home dialect the dignity it deserves.
National Children's Folksong Repository reflects Karen Ellis' continuing emphasis on linking local culture, arts, people, organizations, literacy, music technology and education. BIO / <> RESUME
You've got a problem. You don't know what you don't know.
Genius of the Educational CyberPlayGround®
We've got the solution.
We connect the data, turning it into information, they you'll find the meaning when you see the BIG PICTURE.
People don't surf the web, they poke around.
Until finally people find enough clues to begin to understand all the options: sorting through data - which link is the best, which one is telling the truth, and reading, reading, reading, to determine the big picture.
THAT TAKES TIME A LOT OF TIME, IT'S TOO SLOW.
Since we have been on the net since 1991 you can know that we've spent more than 10,000 hours finding the best, most trusted research / data out there. We've collected the information for you.
The point of our effort is to provide context and meaning. Our expertise allows the public to grasp the "history of how we got here" through a hand selected, curetted, collection of links through the past 25+ years on the net.
We can show our mastery of the subject areas by curating a collection of topics, issues, and most importantly the history of these connections. We are curators of the big picture, and provide interdisciplinary knowledge.
The links found on the Educational CyberPlayGround ® are not machine made aggregated links accomplished by artificial algorithms. Human labor is where the value will be found in any online enterprise.
YOUR LEARNING STYLE? - SO WHAT???
Our Transcendent Purpose:
Everything we do, we believe in challenging the status quo, we believe in showing the big picture. The way we challenge the status quo is by using disruptive transdisciplinary thought. [ IEC ]
Transdisciplinarity - the future doesn't fit into a single discipline.
On one page we give you enough clues, enough information that gives you enough meaning to get the big picture.
Friedensreich Regentag Dunkelbunt Hundertwasser
Straight lines are "godless and immoral" and "something cowardly drawn with a rule, without thought or feeling". He called his theory of art "transautomatism", focusing on the experience of the viewer rather than the artist.
This isn't about a perfect website!
This is about you being in the right place at the right time, and getting the right story and needed connections that bring you to meaning & context which is found through understanding the big picture.
You'll get the research, find the connections, learn what you need to know or the trust worthy Ringleaders you can ask. It is acts of humanity that make people survive in the struggle for life, it is one living being taking care of the other that makes us come through.
ECP is Remarkable and worth talking about. All articles on the Educational CyberPlayGround are written using primary sources. You can feel confident when you link here.
We reward your loyalty, treat you differently, and reserve our highest level of respect for those that stand by us. We will help amplify your voice and shine a light on you.
ON THE NET SINCE 1991
Back when I was using Bulletin Boards and would check my email by logging onto a mainframe and using a command-line email program like pine.
The freemium model — we have been offering a free service online since 1996.

FYI: The Wayback Machine from the Internet Archive, one of the most useful and important Internet research tools, recently reached a major milestone. In a blog post, archive founder Brewster Kahle announced that The Wayback Machine now provides access an index containing more than 240 billion URLs (about five petabytes of data), with archived pages dating back to 1996. The amount of newly accessible archived material is huge. Prior to this update, The Wayback Machine provided access to about 150 billion URLs.
OF STORY TELLERS
We are here to help protect the commons, the common folk, and the common wealth.
American media is famous for refusing to question the status quo or skimming over the details to the point where the point is not made. You can count on the business of obfuscation.
We admire Consumer Reports, and Daniel Shore, the benchmark of truth tellers, who did his best keep his promise. It just seems impossible to find people like this now, which is why pundits mean less than ever before. The politicians, and the media have squandered it's social currency, the publics' trust.

A PLACE FOR NEWBIES
REASONS TO PLAY HERE
The Educational CyberPlayGround® began in 1996 when I recognized the need and provided a place newbies to start. The focus was always professional development and still is. It was also a great place to house the custom curriculum delivered by the Internet, and a place for all of us to play in cyberspace. That's where I got the idea of a CyberPlayGround, no boundaries, no walls, where Adults can come to play.

FAST FACTS | STATS | STICKY SITE
The ECP is a specialty portal that is focused on a specific topic - Education. Some analysts are convinced that the large, general portals' services are becoming indistinguishable from each other and soon will be ghost towns as people flock to specialty sites that cater to individual interests. A unique database just for the business of Education. We offer many valuable services that Internet travelers cannot get off-line -- better deals, greater convenience, greater ease of use, and you can list your service or product for free.
