How we design conscious, creative and caring virtual learning - Seth Fleischauer | S2E10
Play • 1 hr 7 min

Seth is the President & Founder at Banyan Global Learning, a group of educators who deliver live virtual programs in social and emotional learning (SEL), Digital Citizenship, and Global Citizenship. We talk about what it means to design education that helps us find our place in the world.

Key Topics

  • How Banyan Global Learning works with schools to help kids find their place in the world by exploring the intersection of language, culture, technology, and social and emotional learning
  • Seth's squiggly career, from wanting to be a vet, to studying psychology, to teaching in high-needs public schools, to starting a company that delivers distance education globally
  • What happens on a virtual field trip, why live video matters, and what it means to be a camera-ready teacher
  • How Seth's experience of homeschooling his daughter during the pandemic connects to broader issues of reform, revolution and student choice in education

Detours and Tangents

  • How being a real-life meme (Sad Mets Fan) is a weird kind of fame because you have to tell people about it first
  • How Seth's self-understanding of being a person of privilege has evolved over time
