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. We don't dodge the "tough stuff". Join us as we talk to world-class educators, and tell you what's new.
This is OnEducation. We're glad you're here. Let's roll.
In this episode, Mike and Glen talk about what it means to fail, for teachers and students. We tell some stories of our worst failures in the classroom and how important it is to reflect and learn from mistakes. We need to remind our student that it is OK to fail, and there is no better way to teach that than to be an example. We also spend time with games-based learning leader Noah Geisel talking about the upcoming Badge Summit in Chicago, coding and world languages and the Chrome extension he works with, Stackup.
