    The Future of Learning Virtual Summit with Rohit Barghava

    Trending in Education partnered with Rohit Barghava and the Non-Obvious Company to host a Virtual Summit on the Future of Learning which we're releasing as today's episode. Join Rohit, Melissa Griffith, Dan Strafford, and Mike Palmer as we discuss what the future might hold for parents, learning professionals, and lifelong learners. In a wide-ranging conversation, we explore how our behavior patterns around learning and life have change in response to Covid-19 and how these pivots will likely play forward in the coming months and years.
    What do we make of the distinction between learning and education? How will we navigate this unprecedented wave of disruption? As digital learning moves to the foreground, how will we understand the role of higher education, K12 education, home schooling, and online learning? How should we think about digital equity and digital inclusion? And what might things look like as we imagine a post-pandemic world?
    We cover all of this and more in a fascinating discussion that we hope you enjoy.

    Running It Back - The Last Dance Episodes 9 & 10

    Tarlin and Mike run it back covering the final two episodes of The Last Dance, the epic sports docuseries from ESPN covering the 1990s Bulls. This week we cover the legendary battles with Reggie Miller. What can be learned from Reggie's mindset and competitive drive. Was the "Flu Game" actually the "Tainted Pizza Game" - we have some hot takes there. Tarlin talks GOATs, Mike talks conspicuous omissions, and we begin to synthesize what we learned over the 10 hours of The Last Dance. It's been a heck of a run and we're looking forward to continuing the run even though The Last Dance has ended. Stay tuned for more as we figure out how to keep the magic happening. And thanks of course for listening.

This podcast really isn’t for educators

If you don’t know much about education you might like this podcast. If you have worked in a school district or are an education researcher, you are going to be disappointed. The main host sounds like he is hosting a sports talk show (lots of background laughs at awkward times) and the other guy drones on and says “um” a lot. Most of the time they never get to the point. Every once in awhile they have a decent guest, but for the most part they seem unprepared for that person. I would recommend they prepare more, edit more carefully, and focus on topics relevant to educators.
