TL006 When Missing Class Is Worth It

In this episode of EDU@YourBest’s Teacher’s Lounge, Ross, Bryan, and I discuss our attitudes and approaches to students out of class for school related activities. As this episode is recorded in April students are in the midst of multiple field trips, athletic seasons, and mandated testing. The big question this episode, is what constitutes a “good” reason for students to miss the classroom portion of the class. Join us and don’t forget to leave a comment on the content or format of this podcast. We also welcome suggestions for solutions or future topics. Right now all three of us have large personal stashes of education topics we are passionate about, but if you want to hear something particular, let us know.

TL005 Tech In The Classroom

In this episode Ross, Bryan, and I discuss how technology has found its way into the classroom in ways we didn’t notice until we had an issue in our school that put the tech out of commission for an extended period. We take a few minutes to reflect on the classroom and communication challenges that this brought to light for us. The broader questions is of course how do we “best” integrate tech into the classroom for the benefit of students.

TL004 The Mythical Multitasker

In this episode we talk about one of Ross’ favorite mind myths…multitasking. This conversation came out of an opportunity to talk with the fellas over at Two Pint PLC so if this is interesting check out those guys at https://twopintplc.com/ . We focus in this episode about the tendency we all have, but specifically that young people have, to believe that we can efficiently multitask. While classrooms need to include variety and choice, the ideas that a single student cam effectively accomplish multiple disparate tasks concurrently is patently false. The problem has always existed in the classroom when we ask students to take notes, listen, and participate in discussion, but with the all of the tech students have within reach during their day the fracturing of attention becomes even worse. We talk about how to juggle multiple tasks and meet individual needs while maintaining a clear focus for students.
