Rank #1: Google Educast 190 - Kims wins the Educast!.
Join Dan, Kimberly and Chris this week as they talk about the latest from Google in Education. We look at some great updates, apps and extensions for Calendar, as well as Mobile Docs, and more. Dan asks if voice search going to be a “thing” in education. We check out the latest on Chromebooks and their soon-to-be Android capabilities, and Kim drops the mic with a great coding tool that runs on Chromebooks, plus more. We also share a great new feature that lets you embed live charts in Docs and Sheets.
Rank #2: Google Educast 189 - Spaces, Slides and Snagit.
Join Dan, Sean and Chris as they catch up on the last few weeks. Just because we take a break doesn’t mean Google does! Meet Spaces, Google new tool to solve some problem we didn’t know we had. Slides gets a Q&A feature. Yay! We talk VR, Tiltbrush, Chrome based alternatives to sophisticated software tools, GBoard, and more. We say goodbye to Snagit, and ruminate on what might happen at Google I/O tomorrow.

Rank #1: 66-Hacking Engagement Again...THE SEQUEL.
When I wrote Hacking Engagement, I was amazed that fifty hacks flowed out of my fingertips and compressed the keys of my laptop. Fifty seemed like a marathon, however, those hacks systematically materialized. When I typed the last period of the last sentence, I thought, Wow. that was a lot of hacks. I need a break. But here I am again...back with 50 more engagement hacks. Hacking Engagement Again is just like its predecessor Hacking Engagement: Both are short, containing a little over 30,000 words apiece. Both are comprised of fifty hacks that are each about 600 words in length. Neither is linear. Instead, they’re like cookbooks; you scan the table of contents and find what you need to make tomorrow’s lesson delicious.
Rank #2: 10-Present to Students Like a Zen Master.
Presenting to kids in the 21st Century ain't easy! It's hard to engage them...then maintain their interest. When I presented in the past, I was always hypersensitive about my student's engagement level. I'd worry...Did I lose him? Is she listening? He looks like he's nodding off! How can I cover what I need to in the next 5 minutes? I consider myself an engaging presenter, but I was struggling! I needed a new way to do things.My fascinating educator Voxer group made a remarkable book recommendation last summer. I was guided toward Presentation Zen by Garr Reynolds. Occasionally, I've run across books that alter my paradigm fundamentally. That was certainly the case with Garr's!Please listen to this episode and learn how I transformed my presentations. Problem solved!

Rank #1: Flipping the Flipped Classroom with the In-Class Flip.
Flipped learning has become wildly popular in education. Unlike a traditional course setup, where content is delivered in class and students apply and practice their learning through homework, the flipped classroom turns that arrangement on its head: The initial content delivery happens at home, and then students and teachers re-converge in class to apply and practice their learning. In this episode, Mark Barnes identifies the biggest problem with the trendy flipped classroom and provides some simple strategies teachers can use to flip learning back to the classroom, with the in-class flip. This is Flipping Flipped Learning. See step-by-step details on the strategy at http://hacklearningpodcast.com. Talk about on Twitter at #HackLearning.

Rank #1: EP128 Daily routines makeover: How to maximize your time at school so you can work less at home.
Join me today as I help one teacher make over her daily schedule so she can maximize her time in school and work less at home based on a coaching call that I conducted with a graduate of the 40 Hour Teacher Workweek Club. Have you ever wondered how time slips away from you and the entire day is gone? Listen in as I walk Amara, a 3/4 French Immersion teacher from Winnipeg, Manitoba, through each element of her non-instructional time and look for ways that she can streamline and simplify. As you listen in, I encourage you to ask yourself the same questions I’m asking Amara as you are going to be able to relate to her challenges because they’re common to almost all teachers. Click here to read or share the transcript and audio or participate in the discussion.
Rank #2: S5EP14 How to respond to rude, disrespectful student attitudes (with Robyn Jackson).
Today we're going to talk about the little things students do that are rude, disrespectful, or just annoying. The things that don’t necessarily warrant some kind of consequence, but that you don’t want to let slide every time. How should a teacher respond to eye rolling, teeth sucking, muttering under the breath, and so on? What do we do about bad attitudes? I don’t want to settle for trite rehashed info, so I reached out to Robyn Jackson because I knew she could take this conversation to a deeper level. Robyn was a National Board Certified English teachers in Maryland, just outside of Washington DC, and has since been and administrator, adjunct professor, consultant, and speaker. She’s been championing equity, access, and rigor for over 15 years. Robyn is seriously one of my favorite experts in the education space, because she has a deeper understanding of human behavior and motivation than anyone else I know, and she always keeps it real. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing her speak in person a few times just hang on her every word--there’s so much good info there. She has this lovely way of uncovering the root problem and also sort of calling you out on your own mess instead of allowing blame-shifting. Grab a notepad when you listen to this one, because you’re going to want to take notes! Want to give your feedback on Season 5 of the podcast?
