Bonus Episode 7 - Podcasting as PD

February 8th, 2019

This special episode of Ed is a recording of the session I recently did at the NCTCA teachers convention. It's a quick session all about how to use podcasting as a source of personal professional development, both from the listening and the creation side. This was recorded in front of a live audience and was the first part of a two-part session. The second half will be coming out as a check-in at the start of March.

Check-in 37 - Blinders On

February 1st, 2019

Well, its finally happened. This month marks the first solo flight for Ed. On my own, I reflect this month on the importance of personal challenge. We regularly encourage our kids to overcome obstacles and accept failure as part of the learning process, but how often do we engage in this same mindset? I talk about some recent challenges I've taken on, plus the need to remain focused on a single goal in order to achieve truly deep learning and that level of high polish that can only come with hard work and time.

Conversation 81 - Rob Alvarez - A Crisis of Engagement

January 24th, 2019

Rob Alvarez is a professor of business, a podcaster and a gamification expert. We talk about all three this week, but of course our focus is on the last of these three. Rob thinks there's a "crisis of engagement" in education today and we talk about ways to revive students' thirst for learning. And it's not just simple incentivizing; instead gamification is about helping students to find a reason for their learning, and helping them to see purpose in the goals of whatever course they're in.

Conversation 79 - Michael Ralph and Laurence Woodruff - Read Your Research

January 10th, 2019

Michael Ralph and Laurence Woodruff are both teachers, podcasters, and strong advocates of research-based classroom practices. Their approach to education is both rigorous and passionate. In this week's conversation, we talk about the importance of reading research on best practices, bee-keeping (not as off-topic as you might think), and the controversy surrounding grading and how to make it a significant experience for both teacher and student.

Conversation 78 - Jen Cort - Just One Sentence

January 3rd, 2019

Me and Jen Cort chat this week about the power of a single sentence. Jen works as a diversity consultant with schools, helping them to build places that are safe for all students, regardless of their situation. We talk about the power of listening in difficult situations and even what the right things to say might be in those scenarios - even if the right thing to say is nothing at all.

Check-in 36 - New Years Resolutions

January 1st, 2019

Happy new years! Nadine Young and myself kick off 2019 with our own set of edu-focused resolutions. For Nadine, it's all about supporting students better. For me: marking. We break down our own desires to be better teachers and really get into the pitfalls that we both encounter day to day. As always, there's wins/fails and timeouts, too.
