The Struggle is Real
This is episode 18 - The Struggle is Real. We're talking about the power of letting students - and teachers - struggle when learning something new. We share an experience with 6th grade students and Google Slides. Lastly, we reference a couple of resources that can help build in some struggle that still integrates with your curriculum.

New School Year, New Roles, New Tech
It's the first episode of the 2017-2018 school year! One of our podcasters, Eric, has a new role.
