    Growth Through Conflict

    Growth Through Conflict

    In this episode, Robert Feirsen and Seth Weitzman discuss their forthcoming book, "From Conflict to Collaboration: A School Leader's Guide to Unleashing Conflict's Problem-Solving Power." Leaders in education often commiserate about the challenges of dealing with conflict in their schools and districts. Many lack the tools needed to productively confront tensions in their communities and consequently avoid addressing substantive deep-rooted issues such as inequity out of fear of sparking controversy. Feirsen and Weitzman argue for Conflict Agility rather than Conflict Avoidance and advocate for education programs to begin teaching students practical skills that will enable them to address conflict, for instance applying techniques such as Design Thinking that will also help their communities grow stronger together.

    The New Landscape of Technology and Education

    The New Landscape of Technology and Education

    In this episode we welcome back Dr. Matt Rhoads to discuss the landscape of technology in education today.  With the disruption of Covid, teachers and students found themselves forced into a technological landscape of online and hybrid learning.  Will K-12 leaders use this experience as a springboard to innovate new pedagogies that formally and thoughtfully integrate technology and hybrid learning experiences into the curriculum, or will the pendulum swing back towards "normal"?
