WEDNESDAY'S SHOWS (September 23rd):
  • 10:00 AM - The Connected Classroom with Rusty May - Educators Unmuted. "Join me for a lively conversation talking about what you want to talk about. SEL, connecting in the virtual classroom, what’s working, what’s not and everything else that’s on your mind as the school year continues to unfold. 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."

  • 4:00 PM - "Thrive in EDU" with Rachelle Dene Poth - "Education and Current Challenges with Dr. Toutoule Ntoya and Justin Schleider. "For this week, I invite everyone to join in for a lively discussion with Dr. Toutoule Ntoya and Justin Schleider.  We will spin the wheel and discuss education and current challenges. Justin currently teaches physical education, health, and technology integration in an elementary school which includes grades 4th-6th and is located in NJ. He previously taught in Springfield, Mercer County Special Services and Lambertville Public School. He is the brains behind #slowchatpe and which is the impetus for the slow chat (question a day) Twitter and Voxer. Justin provides professional development to school districts across the nation as well keynoting conferences. In his spare time, he helps organize EdCampNJ and reads voraciously. Dr. Toutoule Ntoya is an educator and entrepreneur dedicated to helping students achieve by 1) working with teachers in professional development and coaching to implement curricula and 2) working with students directly using learning and motivational strategies. He is a very energetic individual that loves to work in collaborative settings with like minded individuals working in synergy. Throughout his career, he has shown a passion for working with diverse learners to facilitate the learning of necessary skills. Join us for a great conversation, bring your questions and let's learn together."

THURSDAY'S SHOW (September 24th):
  • 4:00 PM - REINVENTING.SCHOOL - EPISODE 22A+B: Positive Education with host Howard Blumenthal. "You may be familiar with the concept of Positive Psychology--a two-decade-old part of psychology that studies the positive side of the human experience through hope, resilience, mindfulness, relationships, agency and future mindedness. All of this applies to education in very useful ways. Positive Education incorporates aspects of social-emotional learning, but it goes much further. This week, we're joined for our first half-hour by Sir Anthony Seldon, Vice-Chancellor of The University of Buckingham since 2015, one of Britain’s leading contemporary historians, educationalists, commentators and political authors; and for the second hour by Laurie Santos, a psychology professor whose big project at Yale University is to positively influence the culture of the institution by teaching happiness and well-being."
See you "online!"
