KidCast for Peace; Solutions for a Better World
Kids Foster Positive Values Honoring Mother Earth In Celebration of Earth Day
Maui Hawaii - March 22, 2003 - Children from Maui have repeatedly won top honors and awards of software for their participation in KidCast for Peace; Solutions for a Better World, broadcasting for the 12th time on Earth Day, April 22nd and beyond. Global Community participation is encouraged as always! Kids in Maui schools and homes are invited to again join with their peers to creatively respond to the question they put to adults, “How would you create World Peace?” Kids-of-all-ages are invited to make and share suggestions in any form of art, prose, poetry, song, music, performance, etc.. The general public can participate with free CU-SeeMe videoconferencing software. Just go to KidCast Central, the coordination site at: http://creativity.net/kidcast2.html, and read the help file, and/or add your “solution.” Live public broadcast centers will be announced. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org, visit the web site or call the KidCast Office: 808 875 4747.
KidCast for Peace is a live interactive gathering, multimedia happening, video conference, Web site competition and edutainmnet experience that dissolves boundaries of time and space. KidCast for Peace was the first ever World Wide Web Video conference sanctioned by educators and corporations to connect K-12 children in schools, homes and cyber cafes. Over 200 children have participated from Hawaii (in a submerged submarine no less), California, Texas, Amsterdam, Singapore, Croatia, Belfast, and elsewhere.
Prizes will be awarded for best participation and KidCast web sites created specifically for the “Gallery of Solutions.” Maui children recently taped a KidCast For Peace TV show. It will air later this month on Akaku Maui Community Television and be streamed on the Internet. Sponsors for this year include: Creativity Cafe, Four Star Mortgage, Whalers Realty, Akina Aloha Tours, Ministry of Fun, Ceeds of Life, Maui Individualized Learning Center, ERA Maui Realty, The Sign Source, Island Honda, Maui Toyota, Cutter Automotive, Dr. Vallejos, Esteban Construction, Bounty Music, Cruiser Phil’s, David Cain, No Ka Oi Foundation, Dream Makers Foundation, V.A.R.I.O.U.S. Media and many others.
“KidCast for Peace is helping to build smart kids, not smart bombs,” offers KidCast Coordinator, Peter H. Rosen, who’s nonprofit Visionary Artists Resources Including Other Unique Services (V.A.R.I.O.U.S. Media 501c3) produces the KidCast at least once a year. Rosen states, “We want to install life affirming values and breed ‘optimal humans.’ It's time to offset current fear and violence inducing television programming with something more positive! Desktop broadcasters are the New Storytellers. They are taking advantage of Digital Cinema and Internet access.”
