On Thursday March 12, we got the news that Michigan schools would be closing and our district had one final day of classes that Friday. None of us realized that would be the last time we'd see our students that year or that COVID19 would likely change the face of education forever. How to Use Games to Build Community in Distance Learning The COVID-19 pandemic forced students and teachers to change their routines drastically and quickly as they shifted to online learning. They could no longer sit in a circle and read a book, jump up to the front of the classroom to recite a poem, or work with a partner to share a dialogue in a language class. During this extraordinarily complex time, it is important to offer students not only a solid academic experience, but also a place for connection and community, familiarity and consistency, discovery and expression—all virtually. Weaving games into lesson plans can improve engagement, inspire creativity, and develop content knowledge during a challenging time.

Between Worlds: How can we harness disruptive technology to reinvent learning experience When people ask me what our best insurance is against being made irrelevant by AI, I always reply: rethink education. On this week’s show, I spoke to someone doing just that. Richard Culatta is the CEO of the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), and prior to which, was the chief innovation officer for the state of Rhode Island and the director of the Office of Educational Technology for the U.S. Department of Education. For Richard, the future of education is more than just digital textbooks or electronic whiteboards - the real challenge is whether we can leverage disruptive technology to fundamentally reimagine the experience of learning.

If you’ve ever wanted to try using El Internado in your Spanish class but you’re not sure where or how to start, the following may help . . . One of my goals for this new school year is to better utilize El Internado, which almost always means going slower than I tend to go. Mike Peto sums up a good pace as always going slower than the students want.

But my heart kind of dropped when the announcer pronounced my name wrong. You know, it’s graduation, it’s already disappointing enough that we’re having a virtual graduation, instead of an in person one. So for my name to be pronounced wrong, in addition to having my entire high school experience summed up by a five second grad slide, it was super disappointing.
