Kids everywhere want to ride bikes... even kids on Planet Klynia! When twins Hazel and Henry move to Planet Klynia, they find a very different world. As they explore on their bicycles, they see that the local people, called Zonns, never smile. And the twins are the only ones on the whole planet who have bikes! After befriending a Zonn boy named Durst, the twins realize that people everywhere are not so different after all. Durst wants to ride a bike too, but is having trouble learning. With the help of the twins and their step-by-step tips, Durst discovers the joy of riding. Soon all of Klynia is riding bikes and smiling! A fun story for kids ages 6-12... and up. And a great book for any child who wants to ride a bike or has had trouble learning to ride in the past. Seeing that virtually anyone (if ambulatory and sighted) can ride a bike--even aliens--will inspire your child to hop on, feel the wind in the face, and become a smiling bike rider! Includes a How-To Guide to help you coach and teach your child! If your child wants to learn to ride a bike, these tips will help them get past training wheels. Your child will: Overcome their fear of riding Feel confident in learning to ride Learn to ride independently Professor Klein has been instrumental in developing a national program for teaching children with disabilities to master bike riding, and has applied his techniques to this step-by-step guide. This program has helped tens of thousands of children, making it the largest and most successful program of its kind. Professor Klein's bike riding tips can help your child too! Interview with the Author Some people call you The Bike Whisperer. Would you say that's true? I consider that a great compliment. It's a joy to help and see children overcome their fear of riding. Understanding the child/bicycle connection is the key, just as understanding the horses was crucial in The Horse Whisperer. I help each child learn to listen to what the bike is telling them. My goal is to inspire confidence--I always tell the learning child that it's easy and they start to believe it. Will this book really help ANYONE learn to ride a bike? Bike riding isn't something we teach a person to do, but rather it's a discovered skill. Each child has the potential to discover how to ride a bike so long as the environment is conducive for that discovery. Through experimentation, children adapt to and master the bicycle and refine their balancing skills. What makes your techniques so different? There is little oral instruction. I provide an appropriate training bike (or modify their own bike if possible), a safe environment, correct spotting techniques, and then launch them to find their balance. For children with disabilities, I provide a series of trainer bikes with gradually more challenging characteristics until the children are able to master a conventional bike. How long have you been interested in bicycles? My academic background focused on understanding movement and control of movement. In 1983, during my tenure as a mechanical engineering professor at the University of Illinois, my research led to the study of how children learn to ride bicycles, how to design better learning bicycles, and then the innovation of a world-recognized adaptive bike program for children with varied disabilities. The program has now spread throughout much of North America. Where can I get more information about the adaptive bike program? In The Bike Whisperer: Changing the World One Bike Rider at a Time, I tell the story of my experiences in developing the program.

It’s hard to conceive of a topic of more broad and personal interest than the study of the mind. In addition to its traditional investigation by the disciplines of psychology, psychiatry, and neuroscience, the mind has also been a focus of study in the fields of philosophy, economics, anthropology, linguistics, computer science, molecular biology, education, and literature. In all these approaches, there is an almost universal fascination with how the mind works and how it affects our lives and our behavior. Studies of the mind and brain have crossed many exciting thresholds in recent years, and the study of mind now represents a thoroughly cross-disciplinary effort. Researchers from a wide range of disciplines seek answers to such questions as: What is mind? How does it operate? What is consciousness? This encyclopedia brings together scholars from the entire range of mind-related academic disciplines from across the arts and humanities, social sciences, life sciences, and computer science and engineering to explore the multidimensional nature of the human mind.

The volume consists of twenty-five chapters selected from among peer-reviewed papers presented at the CELDA (Cognition and Exploratory Learning in the Digital Age) 2013 Conference held in Fort Worth, Texas, USA, in October 2013 and also from world class scholars in e-learning systems, environments and approaches. The following sub-topics are included: Exploratory Learning Technologies (Part I), e-Learning social web design (Part II), Learner communities through e-Learning implementations (Part III), Collaborative and student-centered e-Learning design (Part IV). E-Learning has been, since its initial stages, a synonym for flexibility. While this dynamic nature has mainly been associated with time and space it is safe to argue that currently it embraces other aspects such as the learners’ profile, the scope of subjects that can be taught electronically and the technology it employs. New technologies also widen the range of activities and skills developed in e-Learning. Electronic learning environments have evolved past the exclusive delivery of knowledge. Technology has endowed e-Learning with the possibility of remotely fomenting problem solving skills, critical thinking and team work, by investing in information exchange, collaboration, personalisation and community building.

It’s healthy for riders and clean for the environment, but is it fun? Amy Walker, who has been at the forefront of the urban cycling trend, knows that the answer is yes. She presents stories by a diverse group of cycling enthusiasts and activists that, accompanied by the illustrations of bike culture artist Matt Fleming, show readers why. They say you never forget how to ride a bike; this collection helps us remember why we ride.
