There's a lot going on. Technology, grading, policy, planning, DeVos, grading, iPads, conferences, grading, Trump, classroom management, grading, curriculum, special needs, and did we say grading? - we get it. OnEducation is here to help. We have honest conversations about teachers, teaching, and everything in between. It's time we talked, and we're hoping you will join the conversation.
Meet Mike and Glen. We're educators. We've been everywhere you've been. Mike is Canadian, Glen is American. We cover all the bases. This isn't your normal teacher conversation, this is the staff room (the good ones). We are real, honest (sometimes brutally) and we are hoping, informative. Join us as we talk to world-class educators, take questions, and tell you what's new.
This is OnEducation. We're glad you're here. Let's roll.
In this episode Mike and Glen discuss whether school districts should hire Public Relations firms, give you some tips for increasing student voice in your class, we will let you know why we should stop calling it a “teacher shortage” and our guest this week is educator and podcast host Brad Shreffler.
