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 the topic on everyone's mind: Laurel or Yanny. Mike reviews his trip to Chicago with 60 elementary students. They're pretty excited about going to ISTE, so much so that they talk about it 5 weeks out. They discuss the tragic school shooting in Santa Fe Texas and address an interesting article that came up about Doctors vs. Teachers. The podcast is capped of speaking to the young developer of emerging educational assessment application Gimkit
