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 discuss what's better: Xbox or Playstation (it's obviously Playstation). They cover the latest news on the policy and politics front and discuss a new "dating app" to help teachers find schools that align with their goals and ideals: Selected. The show is wrapped up introducing the OnEducation Blog with an amazing article by Paul Darvasi: The Scott Pilgrimage Project: Global Culture, Psychogeography and Gaming the City
