It’s easy to see a child’s education as a path determined by grades, test scores and extra curricular activities. But genuine learning is about so much more than the points schools tally. MindShift explores the future of learning and how we raise our kids.

Season four of the MindShift Podcast is all about bringing joy back to learning and teaching. We asked our audience of parents and educators what matters most to them and created six episodes that exist at the intersection of issues parents care deeply about that educators are trying to solve. This podcast highlights how educators are addressing some of the trickiest problems in education with heart and creativity. We dive into anxiety, the importance of play, school lunch and so much more.

Let kids to be kids!

I have seen how much pressure kids are experiencing with over scheduling and high expectation from their parents. To revamp the culture and let kids to be kids again takes an entire district to realize the significance that mental wellness is not a slogan but acceptance to true humanity.

Not a Teacher

I’m not an educator, but find this podcast to be very interesting. The topics are engaging and the production quality makes it easy to listen and enjoy.

Love!

This is the absolute best podcast for teachers! I listen to this on my way to school and I bound out of the car reinvigorated to build teamwork, connect with parents, and think outside the box with my heartstrings pulled for the anxiety, violence, and screen addiction many of my students are fighting silently everyday.
