Episode 62: Educating the 1:1 Pre-Service Teacher

This week I record a podcast while teaching a one-credit Technology in Education course at Whitworth University.

To talk about and help demonstrate the power of connections I had Michael and Trina from Auburn School District, join me for about a 30-minute conversation. Both Michael and Trina give tips for new teachers entering 1:1 schools as well as share some of their favorite units from this past year that allowed the world to be their curriculum.

Episode 61: LMS Tips and Tricks for Starting the New Year off right!

This week I chat with Steve Murphy a good friend and 1:1 classroom teacher of four years. Steve and I talk about tips and tricks for setting up your LMS in the new year to make sure it is successful. We talk a lot about Google Classroom as that is what Steve uses. However, these tips and tricks are not Google Classroom specific and can be used with any Learning Management System (LMS). It’s about the setup, not the actual platform you use.

Episode 57: Rethinking PD for Teachers

As we continue our 1:1 Summer of Fun one of questions always come back to Professional Development for educators and how do we do it right. According to research done by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation called “Teachers Know Best: Teachers views on Professional Development” (http://k12education.gatesfoundation.org/resource/teachers-know-best-teachers-views-on-professional-development/). Schools are not doing a very good job and most educators feel like PD is a hoop that needs to be jumped through. As educators why are not better at offering PD for our teachers.

In this episode I chat with Tyler Rablin who’s school district is rethinking PD in the face of the Internet and trying to find a way to give teachers more choice and voice in their PD options.
