Hello everyone! Last week, Jesse Lubinsky joined me to discuss tech and the revolution it is having in education. If you missed that, check it out here. If you're all caught up, I can't wait for you to hear part 2!
For people that follow me on social media or have listened extensively to the show, you might have heard me discuss my love of video games. In this episode, I get to nerd out a bit about games and their significance in the lives of kids, and Jesse blows my mind with the future of virtual reality in education.
He also drops some knowledge on how to start an E-Sports club at your school, so there is TONS to dive into on this one!

This episode is sponsored by Heinemann—the leading publisher of professional books and resources for educators—and their professional book, Risk. Fail. Rise. A Teacher’s Guide to Learning From Mistakes by Colleen Cruz.
You’ve likely heard the adage, ‘Everyone makes mistakes.’ But knowing why we make mistakes can help us learn from them and improve situations once we’ve made them.
In Risk. Fail. Rise. teachers will learn how to address their own teaching mistakes, model with their own mistake-making, and improve their responses to others’ mistakes. Colleen Cruz shares what research says on mistakes as part of learning and what that means for teaching.
If we can create school cultures where we talk honestly about mistakes, then we can grow and create opportunities for children to grow in all the ways they deserve. And we deserve those opportunities too.
Risk. Fail. Rise. is available as a book and ebook. Look for the audiobook in early 2021. To learn more visit Heinemann.com.
