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.
OnEducation Presents is exactly what it sounds like! Anything that doesn't seem like it fits as a normal episode, and anything that isn't a "quick hit" like OnEducation Now! is an episode of OnEducation Presents. This is where some amazing content is going to live such as:
- Dig It or Ditch It w/ Noah Geisel
- Special interviews
- Audio recordings of speeches or sessions presented by Mike or Glen
- YOUR submissions
