We have five Learning Revolution shows this week ("Teaching by Heart" is on hiatus, "REINVENTING.SCHOOL" is doing two this week). Times are US-Eastern Daylight Time--to see the schedule in your own time zone, and to get the links to attend live in Zoom, please use the SCHEDULE page on the Learning Revolution site.

WEDNESDAY'S SHOWS (August 19th):
  • 10:00 AM - The Connected Classroom with Rusty May - Is Your School Re-Opening Plan Safe? Join me for a in-depth look at what needs to be in your school’s re-opening plan to maximize the probability of safety & success for your students and staff and how to create a connected environment that will facilitate the healing process. If you are a concerned educator, parent, or student, please join in as the mics are always open in the Connected Classroom and we want to hear from you.

  • 2:00 PM - Exceptional Circumstances for Exceptional Learners - Episode 9: "Perceived parent needs in navigating therapeutic support." Host Rebecca Muller, Special Educator and Advocate is joined by Northwestern University Research from doctorate student Ashley Murphy and Dr. Heather Risser. 

  • 4:00 PM - REINVENTING.SCHOOL--EPISODE 16: Opening & Closing Schools, a special Wednesday show with host Howard Blumenthal. Today, REINVENTING SCHOOL goes deep into the question of the safety, wisdom, and controversy associated with opening, and perhaps closing, U.S. schools. For this special episode, we look to Avik Roy, Dan Lips and Preston Cooper, all co-authors of a popular WSJ cover story entitled Why It's (Mostly) Safe to Reopen the Schools

  • 4:15 PM - "Thrive in EDU" with Rachelle Dene Poth - with Julie Daniel Davis on "Adjusting teaching and learning to possible at home surroundings." I look forward to having a conversation with Julie Daniel Davis. Julie is a former Director of Instructional Technology and Innovation and a certified educational technology leader (CETL) with CoSN. She has a heart of an educator in whatever she does. Recently her passion has become voice technology and its potential impact on education. She is the founder of the Voice in Education weekly podcast. She has been recognized as an Amazon Champion, a Bixby Premier Developer and her podcast has been a finalist in the Project Voice Awards. Julie desires to help educators think critically about integrating voice into the educational setting. She also strives to help voice developers consider the needs of educators when creating voice solutions. Somewhat of a futurist, Julie wants to be a part of facing the next paradigm of educational problem-solving to make the process of learning more personalized and streamlined.  Check out Julie's podcast: Join us for a great conversation: Adjusting teaching and learning to possible at home surroundings. bring your questions and let's learn together. 
THURSDAY'S SHOW (August 20th):
  • 4:00 PM - REINVENTING.SCHOOL--EPISODE 17: CYBERATTACK! with host Howard Blumenthal. Today, REINVENTING SCHOOL considers a serious technology threat to (a) our sanity; (b) our business and industry; and (c) our schools. Could a giant cyberattack disrupt or even disable our access to the internet? (How would we do distance learning with no internet?) Is our national power grid at risk? What happens if a cyberattack strikes in the midst of the pandemic? Are we thinking about any of this clearly? For clear and rational answers, we look authors and experts who presented the Solarium Cyberspace Commission report mandated by the U.S. Congress (see NY Times article). “The U.S. government is currently not designed to act with the speed and agility necessary to defend the country in cyberspace,” the final report of the Cyberspace Solarium Commission concludes. “We must get faster and smarter, improving the government’s ability to organize concurrent, continuous and collaborative efforts to build resilience, respond to cyber threats, and preserve military options that signal a capability and willingness to impose costs on adversaries.” Our guest experts: Frank Cilluffo, Director, McCrary Institute for Cyber & Critical Infrastructure Security at Auburn University, Suzanne Spaulding, Senior Adviser for Homeland Security and leads the Defending Democratic Institutions Project (DDI) at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), and Mark Montgomery, Executive Director, Cyberspace Solarium Commission.
See you "online!"
