For our last show of the season, we discussed Universal Design for Learning and how it works in a classroom. Ira Socol joined us for this important conversation. We will be back in September with some great new topics. See you then!
Lisa, Sheila and Maria were joined this week by Deven Black and John Fladd. The topic of conversation was teaching boys. As usual, lots of opinions and ideas were expressed. John helped move the conversation by talking about the book that got him thinking about all of this, Boys Adrift.
Ever have a great project idea and were not able to actually start or complete it? We talked about those projects with John Fladd, a colleague of Maria's. What is it that prevents us from seeing a project to fruition?
This week we started talking about the impact of the volcanic eruption in Iceland. Real-time science connections! This led to Earthcast, a 24 hour webcast on Earth Day, April 22. The Earthcast will be hosted on Worldbridges on the Earthbridges channel. We were able to get a few more people to sign up to participate, in fact all three Conversations hosts will be participating! What will your school, organization or you do on Earth Day?
