Learning Revolution Shows Today and Tomorrow: "Connecting In Your Online Classroom," "Podcast and Creation in the Classroom," and "Teachers of the Year (Part Two)" #learningrevolution

We have three Learning Revolution shows this week ("Teaching by Heart" is on hiatus and "Exceptional Circumstances" is taking a start-of-school break). 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 (September 9th):
  • 10:00 AM - The Connected Classroom with Rusty May -  Connecting In Your Online Classroom. "Join me for a lively, open dialogue about the necessity for creating relationships first and foremost as the new year begins. If we do not create connections right away, many more students will check out of our virtual classrooms. The priorities are obvious; connection before content and creating safe, connected environments that will facilitate the healing process, in-person and online. 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."

  • 5:00 PM - "Thrive in EDU" with Rachelle Dene Poth - Podcast and Creation in the Classroom with Dr. Dan Kreiness. "For this week, I invite everyone to join me for a discussion about podcast and creation in the classroom. My guest is Dr. Dan Kreiness, an instructional leader, podcast host, and edtech presenter. Dan began his teaching career by spending nearly eight years in the New York City Department of Education as an eighth grade English language arts teacher, academic intervention specialist, and middle level literacy coach, then spent nearly five years at Derby Middle School in Derby, Connecticut as a reading teacher and instructional coach. He is currently an ELA Instructional Coach in the Norwalk Public School District in Norwalk, Connecticut. Dan holds masters degrees in adolescent education and educational leadership and is currently a doctoral student in the field of educational leadership. His dissertation is called 'Transformational Leadership to Inspire Growth Mindset in Classroom Teachers.' Dan was named to the 2017 class of ASCD Emerging Leaders.
