Virtual Reality, Reality as a Virtue with Jaimen McMillan


Virtual Reality
Reality as a Virtue
with Jaimen McMillan

There is a battle going on for the minds and souls of your children. Their bodies are secondary casualties, victims of “friendly fire.”  The battle is real.  The enemy is virtual. The elusive lure of virtual reality – TV’s, computers, Gameboys, video games, and   electronic music threaten to program the children’s minds, paralyze their bodies, while shrewdly shaping their souls. This lecture will unmask these threats to see that the greatest danger lies in our not consciously countering it and provide techniques to help our children navigate more safely through the virtual worlds. Real answers might be sought by simply “getting real”; from direct experiences from the “school of hard knocks.” Could interacting with the three-dimensional real world give us clues to move from the virtual towards virtue?

Session begins Friday evening 7:30-9:30 pm, and continues Saturday 9:00 am - 5:00 pm.

Full Workshop: $175 (early bird $150 before September 15)
Friday Night Only: $20 at the door

Host Family Social and Information Session

We welcome all past, current and potentially interested host families of both short term exchanges and visiting international students as well as multiyear international students to join our first host family social and info session. At this meeting we hope to create a space for host families to connect and share their experiences (the highlights and potential challenges), for prospective host families to gather more information about what is involved in becoming a host parent, and finally to start to build a community of support around the wonderful families that make it possible for KWS to extend enrollment to a wide array of diverse international students. Mandy Chan and Mary Barrett, two of our homestay coordinators will also be attending the meeting and will be delighted to answer questions about host family requirements, cultural differences.

Join us for an evening of dynamic exchange, sharing, delicious refreshments and community building. Please bring your curiosity, feedback, questions, concerns, and enthusiasm. Please RSVP to Elisabeth Burgess if you are able to attend at but if you choose to come at the last minute, do feel welcome to just stop by.
