GENERAL INTEREST Philosophy Fun: Computers, Cyborgs, and Machine Consciousness

Friends of the Hibbing Public Library

Kristen Zbikowski Advances in technology are affecting people on a profound level, giving us abilities to affect our world, and our personal lives that are unique in human history. But this technological development brings with it startling discoveries into human cognition and consciousness. Is human thought truly private and unique? Can consciousness be and all the elements of cognition engineered? As computers grow more sophisticated, the likelihood grows that we will soon be sharing the world with conscious, artificial beings. It is also likely that humans, through augmentation, will become more like artificial beings. What will this mean to society? In part one of this course we will examine some of the elements of cognition and computer processing, with insights from contemporary philosophers. In part two of this course we will learn about current research in cognition and consciousness. In part three of the course, we will consider future directions for human beings and artificial agents in the information age. Sponsored by Hibbing Community Education.

Early Childhood Screening and Kindergarten Registration Has your preschool child been screened? If you are a parent, guardian, grandparent, or friend of any preschool children ages 3 to 5 years old, they need to be screened. State Law requires that all children must be screened BEFORE entering Kindergarten. The state encourages screening at age 3 to 4 years old and not waiting until right before kindergarten. The purpose is to look at the child’s overall development and see if they could use any extra help in getting ready for school. The screening is provided free of charge by the Hibbing School District and is done six times per year. The screeningg will assess your child’s vision, hearing, height, weight, and general development. The parents will have the opportunity to visit with the screener and a school nurse so that all questions and any concerns may be addressed. For more information on scheduling and completing required paperwork call the Early Childhood office at 208-0853

EARLY CHILDHOOD & SCHOOL READINESS Early Childhood Screening

Early Childhood/Family Education

Early Childhood Screening is required before a student starts kindergarten in Minnesota. The screening is a quick and simple check of how your child is doing at 3 to 4 years of age. It identifies, at an early stage, possible health or learning concerns, so that children can get help before starting school. It is not a readiness test for kindergarten. Early childhood screening helps a parent find out how their child is doing, helps connect families to early childhood programs and other community services, and is a time to ask about parenting issues and/or concerns. If your child has been screened through Head Start, they do not have to be screened again. Hibbing Early Childhood Screenings are held 6 times during the school year. There is no charge, however appointment are required. Please contact the Hibbing ECFE office (218-2080853) for required paperwork and to schedule a screening date and time. Sponsored by Hibbing Public Schools. For more information contact Hibbing ECFE Office: 208-0853.

ECFE is a statewide program through the Hibbing School Districts Community Education, for any parents and preschool children from birth to kindergarten age. It has a parent group time when parenting issues, child development information, speakers, and parenting support are provided by a licensed parent educator.
