The Areté Institute presents an edgy and entertaining educational podcast for teachers, students, parents, administrators and anyone else who cares about the state of education. While it is playful and fun, we also address the revolutionary changes that are happening and need to happen to create more meaningful and engaging education. We’ll celebrate students, educators, and schools who are getting it right and give tools and guidance for inspiring everyone else. Each episode starts with a fauxmercial - a commercial parody for fake educational products we wish were real. And every interview ends with the guest playing The 5-Minute Game Show which is written specifically for the topic and guest of each episode. Who knew that revolutionizing schools could be so fun?
Challenging and Changing Current Narratives in Education
In this episode, veteran educator and podcast host Charles Williams and I have a great conversation about the work we need to do to create true equity in education and the importance of challenging our current narratives. We also talk about problematic intrinsic biases that we all have and how to change them. Even though the topics we discuss are serious and important, along with all the practical ideas, we do get very silly
Loui Lord Nelson: Using Universal Design for Learning
This episode celebrates Overthrowing Education’s 2nd anniversary with Universal Design for Learning expert educator and author Loui Lord Nelson. Our conversation explores what UDL is and how to incorporate this important framework into lesson designs. Play The 5-Minute Game Show along with Loui and see if you can do as well as she did, cause she slayed it!
Clement Townsend: Media Arts Help Students Inform, Inspire and Impact
My guest on this episode is Clement Townsend who helps schools and teachers integrate media arts into their programs and lessons. In this time of media saturation, using media arts as a means for learning is even more important. Clement and I discuss how we can integrate media arts into all subjects. We also talk about how to help students tell stories, including their own, to inform, inspire and impact the world around them.
The Last Day of School: A Comedy Radio Show
This bonus episode is just for fun! This radio comedy, "The Last Day of School" was performed live online during Edupodlooza back in June. I joined a talented group of education podcasters to write and perform this brief glimpse at a very unique last day of school. We poke fun at ourselves, ed podcasts in general and some of the crazy things that educators endure . . . like Zombies (??!!)
Connie Hamilton: Asking and Getting Students to Ask Great Questions
Today’s episode with educator and author Connie Hamilton is so near and dear to my heart. We have a great conversation about the importance of not only how to ask powerful, more focused questions, but also how students can do the same. Connie also shares how to respond to the “I don’t know” answer that we often get from students. She offers so much solid, applicable advice in this episode!
Mike Kaechele: Combine PBL and SEL for Super-Powered Learning
In this episode, I have a great conversation with the wise and wonderful educator, Mike Kaechele, who clearly lays out why Project-Based Learning is such a natural partner for growing Social Emotional Learning skills and how to combine them together to create a better education for all students. Mike provides lots of great examples and tools (not just tech tools, either) to design incredible PBL units, with great SEL opportunities.
Golden Nuggets Everywhere
Wow, what an incredible podcast. The truths that are shared are spot on. The guests add a lot of value to the purpose and mission of the podcast. Every educator needs to hear the wisdom you are sharing.
