"It has spawned. Is that everyone in the notes? I wrote everyone in their mothers putting on a virtual conference. It's so true of virtual conferences going to happen. He has a lot of virtual conferences and the thing is. Is there a lot of virtual conferences con? We'RE GONNA put conference in air quotes for a minute also That that wouldn't that weren't like on the books as real conferences. Like like in person conferences. That are that are popping up and you know. I think that one of the things that you know cost of putting on a real person like when you think of something like imp- Impact. Education conference is three floors of a hotel catering. Two meals a day every day for three days. It just those cost alone not to mention the the speaker fees and stuff like that you know I guarantee you a conference like that costs in the in close to or more than one hundred thousand dollars like a couple hundred thousand dollars. Yeah so you know. When that cost is now basically removed and to get a speaker all you have to do is potentially even pay them and who knows if some of the these pop up conferences are paying their speakers but certainly all they have to do is sit in front of their computer like we do doing a podcast. And Bam. You have keynote. And it's like You know the biggest expense. Now for a virtual conferences. Your time Just to promote it and create kind of graphics and work on make sure the contracts and all of that stuff in schedule and and and all of that That's that's basically what's happening is everyone's everyone's making a virtual conferences virtual conference before he's the on education. You build a virtual conference right. It's like that movie. Will they come? You build a baseball field. We'll they love. Will they come to the virtual conference? And that's the part I thinking through is like so. Many people are super uncomfortable with this format as far as just this. This virtual format that I'm talking about educators even on and then being able to to attend a conference attend sessions and so on and so forth Yeah so but you were thinking on education. Some it's something I've always wanted to do right. We've talked about this a million times and in fact went through some planning with folks about it as well. I think doing something like this would actually kill me. I would you on top of everything else that you're getting time for that non so now listen if someone if someone wants to create the education summit run it for us. I'll pay you. Hey we're sure that out there. People come on and we'll play you. GotTa you gotTa have a resume so you can actually do it. There's only like literally two people that I know in my Rolodex. Do we have rolodex anymore? I don't know there's only two people that I know that you know could do it the way that I would expect in so I don't know yeah thing I put it out there putting it get universe call would say she's out into the universe slighted to Mike Stems light into my your resume propose for the actually sliding totally. Dm's if minecraft dungeons came out. Today I know I guess playing today. Us because yeah. We're recording on Tuesday. We normally record on Mondays. But it's Tuesday. The Twenty Six and my craft engines is out and listen if you WANNA play minecraft engines with me. Because that's why I'm going to be playing next ever slide into my on that too. You're ready yeah. I think we're going to play right after this is done and it's going to be great. I'm really excited so yes. The school year is wrapping up a of laces. You were watching your high school graduation today. Yup The seniors are graduating today and they are doing just the super innovative idea. There is the the state of the Department of Education. Minnesota gave guidelines on graduations and One of the the guy we've obviously following the guidelines and there couldn't be an actual physical graduation putting in air quotes. So they what our school did is basically what resembles to me For those of us that are old enough to remember drive in theaters. A drive in movies. they rented a Jag. Norma screen Only specific people were allowed on the stage. So that we you know you keep Social distancing and everybody else stayed in their stays in their cars and then they have the whole entire ceremony and it's all streamed through youtube. Everybody can watch it live. There's actually seeing the physical stage or they can pull it up on their phones. Be Able to listen to it on the radio. Also so it's kind of cool. I like that part because if you ever remember as far as the drive in movies there was this little speaker system that you set on your window sill of your car and that was the actual audio for the movie. So that's the reminded me of that that the actual local radio station was running broadcasting. The signal of the the The VALEDICTORIAN the principal. Speaking and so on and so forth the speeches And so then after that they're going to have a parade where they drive their vehicles through the town of sock rapids And every all the community members are all lining up this basically a parade route is the best way to describe it where they're going to be cheering them on as they go through the super cool unique way of being able to have A A graduation and so yeah they the years ending this week for us and I know that's in some states like New Jersey specifically in New York. I know for sure. They're going like two or three weeks into June. So it's like Morse similar kind of like what you guys have in Ontario. Correct right back where you guys are still. They're still a whole month. Left you guys still about two or three more weeks or four more weeks. Yeah right till the end of June. And so anyway. Because it's the end and this is the end of emergency slash distance learning. We have begun as a instructional coaches and administrators have started putting out surveys to kind of get everybody's reflections on. What did we learn from this? What can we take away from? This what could we have done better cetera and so on so forth so I figured hey what what can we say of? All of this stuff started in March and for many of us. We've been out of school basically since sometime in March and now through the end of basically the year. What can we take away from that? What can we? What can we bring into next year? No matter what happens as far as what type of school year we have for next year. So that's the the lens that I wanted to go and have that conversation about it your wife as she's going through this. I'm sure she has some thoughts to as far as if if this were to continue in the fall which you say it's not going to as far as in Ontario but if it was something happened that there was another outbreak of whatever might be what what what kinds of things has she been saying or or you've heard as far as educators as far as on. -Tario or you yourself as you start seeing these things. What are the lessons that you can already tell? People are are really taking the heart..

Education conference was awesome. Just amazing and I mean everything from the participants the the vendors and then obviously our speakers and feature presenters at keynote speakers. It felt like Some of like some of the best conferences that we have ever been to where you feel that the audience the participants are highly engaged. They have all these opportunities to be able to go ahead and connect with IOS JOE's nationwide if not globally no and speakers and be able to connect have conversations with them even have dinner. You know like those kinds of things is really amazing as you get these at this size of conference those types of things. It's highly recommend it to anybody for next year. especially if you're okay. TRAVELING MINNESOTA had December. We got the Flip Grade Office which was pretty slick. Yes Gosh I I. Love flipped read. I love flip graded the only the product but the people people that are part of the community. And that's what we've we've had the opportunity of speaking or having a few conversations. We've had this one interview on Youtube.

We talked to a lot of participants and everybody was very happy about all of the different tracks that were being offered so wasn't heavily focused just specifically on at tax just giving those opportunities to branch out to those specific topics that are relevant to you currently as an educator. Great idea the The lunch things that we did as far as the interviews where someone could bring their lunch and be able to listen to again. Globally renowned speakers and be able to interact with them would actually ask questions regarding tough issues whether it be like screen time or whatever might be Jordan Shapiro interview and then of course the Michael Cohen when that's about to come out just fantastic conversations so from Minnesota to take sunny South Beach We will be at FETC We've been speaking to a bunch of the featured speakers we can shelton on a little bit later this episode who was absolutely fantastic So we will be.

You dummy but you know go fix a car sometime or something like that. That's what they're saying like go. Subject to that effect goes some drywall. You're not impressing me with this computer. Nonsense so they buy me tools a lot come and but they bought me something in. It's always something odd you on like this year we were there was like a torque wrench or something. I don't even know what the hell was to be honest. I don't it's something it was something it was. It was a wrench looking type thing but anyways that's not the actual tool Tristan talking about how they bought me a automatic tire inflator like So you sat like the pressure and your your hookup. Your hose down to whatever tire. You're inflating you said it to the pressure you want you press a button and it inflates the tire and its it started when it gets to the pressure like that idea. I've actually I actually wanted one for my bike in the basement For My road my my riding bike because I find that the tire deflates every once in a while when the temperature changes especially dramatically So I was looking to get one and I don't think they knew I think they just wanted to buy me a tire inflator. I you know 'cause you would you want it right. They read your mind purpose. Probably think totally literally what I wanted so i. I'm pretty pretty happy that I got tired of all the things to be excited about. I haven't tried it yet but I'm excited to To not like hit a button. Wow Magic I've been dude.

It's your game called outward. Never heard of highly where I I had heard about it as a a game. That all of these Typical gaming magazines. I want to call them that. They basically didn't even give a chance. Didn't rate the actual game. It came out in two thousand nineteen Early Twenty Nineteen But now it's a whole bunch of critics are like this game is awesome so I I was super excited to get it It's multiplayer. I even multiplayer co Couch Co op. You can join our split-screen it's split screen and local co-op if you want you can go obviously online multiplayer play the same. RPG type of world It doesn't feel as beautiful fooled as some of the stuff. You know the newest versions of My Sky Rim But it's it's a similar vein and if you're a role playing game open world type of a video game person. This game is awesome. It's so fun and it's it's very difficult to so right from the beginning you have a Y- most games set you up with a hero and you're getting powers as you go through this. This is like you're just a normal person of the streets and you're just trying to survive baby the best. You can listen interesting. Yeah it's really good. It's actually. It's very very well done in. It's definitely got all of us. Hooked in this household better. The video game players Nice and the local Coa must be great for you in in the boys gas. That is fantastic. So you don't have to have an extra xbox live sure no membership or whatever might be you can just Click the button boom split screen up good idea that's sweet nice. Local Co op is one of those things. That's dying also console. There's not a lot of local co up games anymore. I know and that that's those are the types of games that are actually looking a lot out for a lot just for being able to play again our kids exactly yup we should do a best about that Liam Colorado gives local co OP games. You can play so people will explain. I'm a co-op means but but but they will go down to like. Because I have several that I really really love a go there. Write that down so so interesting. Article popped up you know in the Washington Post student student protests yes and and That one of the nation's largest school district is going to let kids take time out of school to protest and obviously you know our friends on the on. The right seem to have a problem with US talking about this article a little bit. I think the main key to it though. People are lashing onto the part about getting a day. One day off. School could designate to protest. That's just one of the things you could do. This is basically for civic engagement minute and then I was thinking about this too as far as how really important it has been in the history of the United States recently recent history of the United States for students to actually protests. And then how much of an impact that actually has made a ton of different legislation BEDNETS even And students have led the charge on all kinds of things and one of the the takes that I really hate right now and I don't know if you've been hearing this to on other podcasts. Or whatever might be but Joe Rogan. I liked Joe Rogan ally and I listened to his podcast almost almost every day It's that well done. But what of his takes his. He basically diminishes kind of mocks the power of like Greta and her speaking you know as far as like what her message was and diminishing it a rocking it because she's so young and that really aggravates.

"The podcast by Erin. Rocky she is the principle of justice page middle school. Welcome to the show. Thank you for having me so We're here impact. Education Conference in Seoul was justice page. And so were you and this is all very exciting. we talked off air about the school itself so Actually before we get started. Tell us a little bit about you. Know who you are your background and then that sort of stuff and then we'll get into it yet. Cindy asked me to write an intro as like what do I say about myself so I have been an education for twenty years. I and I am the principle of justice page middle school. I did not start as a principal at justice page middle school. I was the principle of Ramsey. Middle School I've been in Minneapolis for for eighteen years. And I've been an educator so I taught high school I was a school improvement specialist. I was a teacher coach. Assistant principal all and now principle in Minneapolis. So let's talk about the name change because this is fascinating and we talked a little bit about it Before we got on Air It was called your school. Was it's called Ramsey middle school. I assume named after someone named Ramsey who is no longer alive correct And now named after justice page who is absolutely alive Talk about so. You're the principal going through that process and about how the process being very much student centered and student led which is fascinating. Yeah so I was a first year. Principal Oh yes so Graham this year when I introduced Allen but I brand new principal Ramsey middle school. I think I'm doing this great thing. I'm like standing by the door. Greeting all the students coming in for their orientation and they all have stickers on that say rename Ramsey now is like what have I got my what is going on here. You know you just as a new principal. You have no idea I was like I have no clue what's happening here But then I had some teachers who were working working with students who are really saying Ramsey was was not representative of who they were you know. He was known for genocide of Indians. And God. Yeah okay they were just very much like this is not who we are. This is not what we want our community to be about so rename Ramsey seemed appropriate. Yeah totally so I kind of like. I don't think this is the right. Timing and some teachers had come to me and said I think we could do this and I said I just don't think that's what we do as a first year principal. I was like Hope I keep this job longer than you know six months and then the my teachers who are amazing and so smart got to me in an instructional leadership team meeting and and said it's time we have the right students. We had great. Eighth graders who are amazing. Leaders are sixth graders were on board our sixth grade. Social Studies studies kids. Were going through not only personally done eighty but going through genocide and so they were really passionate about it and so they just got me right at the right time and I was like all right. We'll do it. We'll do it and it was. All student led our students did such an amazing job. They engaged all of our stakeholders whether it was a student body. Our community members burs. They hosted school board members. They hosted parents people alumni from Ramsey which was Ramsey junior high. At one time and you know we did have people who are concerned earned. They want the the legend to beyond or the the tradition of what Ramsey was. And you know there's Ramsey county so there was a lot of political heat heat or could have been a lot of political heat around it and there are lots of names that came forward. They explored lots of names. But I'll tell you when one of our community members put forward justice page and it was was like the fire and everybody just got really hot like this. This feels right. This is right. It was a representative who are students that they wanted to be. Did they reach out the the students then to just this out of that part yes you have to ask for permission. It's part of the process so we called and asked them permission and they they agreed but we had no relationship with him before we never talked to him about it it was he just said yes and he never engaged with us. I mean he's so humble and just such a class class act he just let it be said that they were open to it now that we have a relationship with him of course they were waiting that night as we were at the school board meeting waiting for the resolution. You should come forward that we could rename the school and they were there listening and the very next day. Both Diane were on our front steps greeting our kids. They on Friday morning it was into action. Audley that's awesome and I mean there's legal things and and like there's you you've got to engage a lot. I think it's interesting question about how many constituents have to be like on board to name rename a school and these kids that would have but engaged all of those people while we had no idea what the relationship would be we. Didn't you know you don't expect something from someone. If that's not their plan and I mean he was willing to let us use his name as a namesake and we weren't sure what was gonNA happen but Diane you know we've Lost Diana about a year ago and and She just was the most amazing woman in a total go-getter and once the school was renamed. She was there I mean I want to tell a story because She called me one day. It was just right after the name change. It was in the middle of the summer. So I'm like a you know. I'm a new principal. I've been there a year. You know it's the first time I'm going to start the school year in between the second year and she called me and she's like so I have this thing like a a trophy or something that I don't know what to do with it. Just got dust on it. Do you want it and I was like sure. Sure Diane whatever I sure will take it. I'll figure out where to put it. Well it was the gigantic plaque in Notre Dame stadium of him and Dan. I was like Diane. You might want to say Notre Dame stadium so it's hanging in our foyer now. It's this beautiful gold plated. You know being picture of him from Notre Dame Stadium. I was like Diane. That's a little bit more than just something you pulled out of your garage. But she you know they just have so much stuff. I think that of just awards then things that were given to him and they're just so humble it just will put in the school and so it hangs in are now. I mean it was amazing. we we had no idea they are there they were there. Diane was there with him. Now is not after. We've lost her really hard on our community and our community celebrated and her life with him. They never had a public funeral. They came to justice page and our community laid flowers out on. The foyer are out of our front steps. CBS from our entire community coming. I mean it's just amazing We had no idea but they come on. Friday mornings agreed our students. He's welcomes our student student body at the beginning of every single year on the first Friday of the year. And I'm telling you eight hundred and fifty middle schoolers. When he gets up you could hear a pin drop? They love him. That's awesome. He added Grasso binders and shirts and forearms and he gets no one and one example. So I mean we talk Abo- You know the twitter people or the the youtubers the Jake Paul Zal the world that these kids idolize that like there are a lot of youtubers and streamers that I like and that I let my kids watch all the time by I mean there's also some not so good ones and if you're looking for a role model someone one. The kids could look up to in idolize. This seems like the perfect twice. Yeah what a what a perfect well last year. Our Art teacher wrote a grant for exterior murals. So we have four exterior murals that we just put up on the side of our building and they are four pictures of him And our students mere self portraits of our students. But there's a picture from him up from the star. Tribune is opening up a shirt. The first year the First Assembly that he did justice page middle school is open shirt. That's on the outside of our building and I mean I'm impacted every day when I walk in the doors and icy it and I know what our students did to even do the murals in order to make this happen. The student voice that we had to generate the excitement to make this happen. But I had a one of our chief archie academics research chief. Eric more come in and he was speaking to our student body and he leaned over to me during the assembly said. I just want you to know the impact. I'm having to have an African American man on your building. Can you imagine what our students students feel like. Alan page is making an impact and he will make an impact long after he's not on this earth generations honor building. It's not going. I said it's not going to be a hundred years years. Yes so full circle now in just a little bit. He Justice Allen Page is going to actually step onto the stage here at ties and and and basically kick off the conference. And you're going to have the opportunity of introducing them to us. I've been what is that like and while I this is the second or third time now that I've introduced him at a big event and I it is I feel so privileged and I have so much to say about him. He's one of my heroes. I didn't realize he would be such an important hero in my life as well as Diane his wife just the impact that they've had on me around leading education. Being hume are being humble. I mean they're just amazing people and so to be here it'd be able to tell I'm using the the if you've ever seen the office where Jim and Pam are getting married and they take mental pictures. That is my life with Alan page. I take mega surreal. I mean he brought the medal title of freedom to our building. He went to Washington and on the weekend got the medal of freedom and on that Monday he was in our building and he accelerated accelerated the medal of freedom with our students and our school. I mean so I just mental pictures and I just keep thinking it can't get any better and it keeps getting better and better so introducing him. It is a privilege and I feel so honored to have a relationship with him and his family. His children are amazing. I feel like one of their kids. They always hug me in our like we were talking about you at the dinner table so I appreciate that so here at the ties conference you are actually just presented a session. And what was that about ten can share some details tells about that yeah. We are a Social Art Minneapolis. Public schools is one of their priorities. A social emotional learning so justice page middle school has taken that on as one of our priorities parties and are very excited about that. We partner with Castle which is the Collaborative Association of social emotional learning. We're the first learning lab school in the nation. That's partnered with castle Outs long as a couple other schools in Minneapolis and so my sister principal. Casey Burger and I were here presenting some of the things that we've done in the school whether it's around how we harness adult social emotional learning and the atmosphere and climate for our adult teachers..

Are we putting them into this crazy world. And it's it's it's all going to hell Kinda China. Well it depends on how you mean that question. Are you asking about climate change. Are you asking about You know the the Donald Trump and Boris Johnson the total reordering of GOP at political reality in the world. I mean I. I assume you're asking me about technology. I am asking hearings but I think it's important to bring up all those things also because I think we often do get stuck in this question of whether or not the smartphones digital technology is really the issue and I think there are lots of things we need to worry about with with with our kids but but the question is not not just about technology. Technology is just the tool. I mean often. We have people talk about things like the fourth industrial revolution and the question becomes out of we prepare his by the way I hate that term the fourth industrial revolution and gets to the point which is sort of this imagining that. We're just going to do what we already know. A fourth time right right like no. We're doing something totally different. And that's why when we bring up the first thing I said the climate change etc.. I think you have to ask all of those things which our our kids go. We live in a totally different world. At how are they going to have autonomy and agency and beat fulfilled and productive in a totally different world using the tools of that totally different world which are totally different tools as well as totally different ways of thinking as well as a totally different reality are they screwed. Well they're screwed if we don't rise to the challenges adults of preparing them and I'm not quite sure everyone's trying I don't want to point fingers and we're not doing it but we're not doing it but we're trying ain't hard and hopefully we're going to keep trying to it and do it better and better and better i. I'm pretty optimistic about this next generation without necessarily I'm not so optimistic about the state of the world but I'm pretty optimistic about how our kids are going to navigate a difficult world world's going to be a lot harder than ours ecstasy sort of existential a struggles like no. We didn't deal with any. It's incredibly credibly complicated. The world that we're raising our kids into sure so inside of the book or within the book they're just so many compelling things that you say inside of one of it has to do with play in the book you say play digital or otherwise is not frivolous or superficial. It's the work of childhood through play. Kids have their self or learn self regulation and executive functioning. Can you expand upon that. Because a lot of times we as adults we forget about play. That is so important for kids to be doing that. Sometimes we get paranoid depending upon what play. They're doing so. Tell us more about why you I mean. The first thing I'd say is correct myself because I did write that sentence I mean I I'd say is I think play I would like to do play can be frivolous because so much of what we do as as children is is frivolous and that's okay. I think more what I meant is that although play is frivolous has really really really important things happening that goes with it and when you you know everyone always sort of goes out. But they're just wasting their time doing this. Well they're not my point is they're not wasting.

"We are here with joining Pan and jess asked from flip grade to the show. This is exciting. It's super exciting. Because this is the home base of flip grade if anybody doesn't know that that's were here in Minneapolis. Minnesota had actually this evening or this afternoon. There's a giant flip grid event. That's always a special. I told Mike it's the event talk of previously the toppers now the impact education conference something that we all need to attend inexperience. Actually you guys offices and just the culture that you says create there. It's just amazing. I was even telling My former student connor about making sure that he makes an association with because what a company to be able to be the associated with have worked for and to represent. That's obviously what you guys are actually do And it's amazing. It's part of the state and the specific city eighty. So welcome to the PODCAST. Thank you for coming. Thank you excited to be here. So what's it like working at flip grid sunshine lollipops rainbows fast. It's literally fired every day. The stories Greece coming from around the world of ways. Educators are empowering students we left to say share celebrate and showcase student voice and that literally is fills our hearts with sunshine lollipops and most people would just say that and say that it has sarcastic about their jobs but I totally believe relief really as far as the culture that you have built the community obviously to that follows and is part of the flip community but the employees just when you come to you as his workplace. And that's what you're GonNa see to Mike Today. There's some joy in everybody's face in demeanor about just being able to be part of the of of the company itself because everyone every single person that works on the company really truly believes in the purpose behind flip grade is and so the community is just it feeds us. It feels fills our hearts every day and so that joy that you're talking about. It's an office is very genuine because as we all believe in what we're doing what are So you're you're here and obviously this is like your home conference for lack of better words and you're giving away like so. Let's talk about before we went to giveaways because that's like the punch line. What are you doing sessions obviously talking to educators What are you talking to them about? So we're talking all things flip grades so you can come to our sessions and learn ways to empower amplify student voice Using gene flip grid and the various features of grading creative ways so in one of our sessions. We'll do kind of like a basic intro into flip grade for people just getting started then in other recessions. We'll dive deep into how to get connected with other classrooms around the world with Grit Pals. We even have some Flip Grade A.. Are Fun plan for most most of our sessions and then also we'll do a fun flip hunt at the very end and I flip grid fever workshop In which people will really Klay around with the tool create what we're calling The flip grid. We want to make this up the tax whether it's a flip mode e seen taking all those cool features in the flip greg camera and just dickering your screen out or creating a flip Hon. Or using flip grid. Ar is basically a play and learn kind of session at the very end. One of my favorite tools that you guys introduced this summer at is the And as soon as I saw it on the screen I I was like Oh my God I could say. Is that shorts feature. As far as that's the tool. They're within flip grid and I was thinking about Mike's Favorites Digital App what does that have that. You always possible and everything. Explain everything so I was like flip. Grit was already amazing. An awesome in a way to be able to do so many different things than I used it in my Spanish class all the time and then with this tool it was like this new element of being able to display a students to be able to display the kind of what they've learned in a way that's tools like explain everything or other things and kind of smashed together to one place Ad Free I. I was speechless as you guys were presenting on that I was like. Oh this is a super game. I texted Mike Right away as as I was there. Ah The audience and I was like this is a game changer. Yeah well we love to think with shorts that allows you to create in one place but share everywhere and the beauty the of all of the new tools like the text features the whiteboard blackboard mode the inking. You know there's a new rainbow tool in the in Kingston. We say Sunshine Sunshine lollipops. You'll see a lot of UNICORNS in the office this afternoon. The limitless possibilities ace. Yes for ways. Students can create the ways. Educators can create it's all of these pathways for people to share their learning so the new features I mean. They make us excited as educators as well because learning looks different for every student so the tools embedded within the camera experience in flip grid right in shorts educators can create and their own account truly changes the possibilities for what can be shared and then the beauty auty is that little flip grid a are. Qr Code is automatically generated so anything. That's on flip. Grid can be displayed and celebrated with augmented reality. So much to that to the tool is unbelievable like when you think of VIP from like almost like a technology perspective like the tool is unbelievable and like so Glenn Talk I. I used to talk about explain everything all the time. I always said if there was like the one into all that you just couldn't like if you had to choose one thing and I'm really really close because now actually when I'm reflecting on in thinking about it especially the last year so when people have asked me about that one tool. I'm almost always saying flip grid more than I'm saying. Explain everything being in a lot of cases and I'm always stunned when teachers don't even know what flip graded like there's still room which is unbelievable to me that there are people people who still don't know about it and it's great that you guys are out and you you you tour. Thanks so tell us about the tours because I actually loved this that you guys do this. You travel evil all over the place at like with your people and you like hold events which transform a school talk about those a little bit. Because I think they're Burmese ing. It's it's brilliant. We go on we call them. Bus Tours sure But disclaimer. We don't have a bus so sometimes we'll get a little shopping. Suv V. or something But so we go to different schools and we do either. What's called a student voice rally so whether that be hundreds of students in just explaining to them the story behind flip grade and just talking to them about why their voices important in those kinds of things or we do exploration so sometimes we just go to the schools and are going to classrooms and seeing the incredible things? That's that's personally my favorite. Just getting to see what teachers are doing and celebrate that with them. It's unbelievable and then sometimes we have different events at either Microsoft stores or just at a place ace where educators can come and just hang out in network and it's so much fun Exhausting sometimes but best possible way. Yeah I think thank you guys have done it as far as the company has done it the best as if if you're talking about building a community about that we were doing a workshop shop session and one of them was about one of the topics was about. How do you create a community around whatever it is that you're passionate about your commute? It is ridiculous it always almost instantaneously. Once I started seeing it on twitter with flippered fever and and and just the community mutiti itself is a huge advocate for the tool itself. But then also it's like its own stone thing too so it's not just hey flip grid the company but it's almost like there's a group of impassioned educators who want to have the same vision as you guys do which the talk about building the perfect type of community so gruesome movement rather than the company. I love that. Yes they cut that out. I think what you just said to. Its connected. Educators who are passionate. And what are we do as educators we want to empower our scholars to to thrive right. So I love that. You know the mission of Microsoft is empower every person and organization on the planet to achieve more and ours is is like coupled so beautifully with that to empower everybody to share their unique voice. Respect the diverse voices says of others. And if you think about like the population of classrooms everybody's different everybody learns differently but as educators we are collaborative in nature I tend to think you want to share you want to collaborate and the cool thing about this community. It is just educators everywhere who literally embodied the better together mindset and the cool thing is I'm connected to you Glenn so if I have a question because guess what. I don't have all the answers. I can go right to you for inspiration encouragement ideas. Let's let's brainstorm. I mean anything. So that's the beautiful thing about the community. Is We celebrate each other. We encourage each other. We lift each other up. I I am inspired by your ideas. I'm GonNa give you credit for what you're doing and that's like the nature of the community because because Hashtag better to really we mean it and Oh that's another thing that just inspires us so much by the incredible incredible folks in the Flip Grin community the biggest beneficiaries of all of this. You know we talk about building community sharing ideas and all of the things that you're just talking about And the reason why I tell people you need to get onto twitter for example in there like do social media. I'm like no you don't understand. It's put that aside that's-that's what's that negatively about social media. This is something different. This is a way to be able to connect to all of these people but the biggest beneficiaries are students. I mean in the end. It doesn't matter if a teacher I was in a little tiny school that I taught at With Connor and I was the only language teacher but I felt connected to this global community a unity. Because I was part of these communities that you guys are actually building up which I could actually reach out to other Spanish teachers around that just the country but the world old for inspiration for ideas and those things that the biggest beneficiaries were those kids in this little tiny rural school that would have never been able to get those things otherwise otherwise so when I have some pre service teachers at the University of Minnesota this year and the first we talked about was flip grid and what I wanted them to make make sure that they understood. Is that though. They may be familiar with flipper like they go. Yeah I know what it is you record yourself Blah Blah Blah mcdonagh. It's you don't get it. It's it's it is is that it is.

"Now that I've been I woods but it didn't deter me from going to other Asian countries like I would still love to go to Japan absolutely I would Still go to like Taiwan or Korea. South Korea So it didn't deter me from the culture. I didn't find the the culture shock as strong. I I think that other places other people in other parts of other countries entries May Like for example a matron Oh is one of the most ethnically diverse countries in the or or cities in the entire world. That's pretty well known so and I worked at a school. The the the private school I worked at was like sixty percent Chinese So I'm not I didn't find the culture straw shock as strong as other people had warned me And certainly meanwhile I wasn't picking up on the language or anything like that. I was picking up on like tone of voice and style of conversation Because quite a bit easier once once I had been there for a few days Like that clarification. About food for example. I could tell that that was like a a preparation reparation clarification. Do you want the something cooked in this instead of cooked in this. And how do you WanNa dish to serve to you kind of thing as opposed to just like the basics. Excu no can. I have some ketchup on the side. Type type question that you would get in. I would I would suspect that the average person who wasn't used to those types types of cultures who wasn't living in an area of either your country or my country that was used to diversity would have have found a lot of that culture shock? Pretty Strong Coming through customs for me coming through that Chinese customs at I the thinking about this Shanzen ferry was scary as hell like I was sick. Yeah it's got to be there all the all have guns and they're all you know they're all look Kinda mean a little bit and I it was. It was different than going through. You know the customs at at Pearson International Airport in fact when we were leaving going through the Chinese customs when we were leaving with so much easier because I think that there's like an internationalized. Nationalized exiting customs. That's different because they realize that people are going home and it's it's they so they treat them. Maybe a little bit better. I don't I don't know if that's the case but I definitely felt less intimidated leaving than I felt coming in and the company that that our so that I was in the customs area Of the Shenzhen Ferry Terminal was was was pretty scary. I'll be I will be honest. It was it was pretty wild. The part that I was thinking about that would be that I think would be the most intimidating about what you just finished describing would be be how the population density that part would free people everywhere. All the targets were enemy. You're used to you. I mean you. You live near a jacket norma city. I'm not really a city that never wanna live in a city. But I guess if you're from Los Angeles or New York where you live in a big city used to urban life and and multiply that times like you just said timeslot. Yeah and you're used to that what it feels like to be in the middle of this China city city with tons of people tons of things going on that same time that part. I would find superintendent. There is a massive amount of people giant like Unimaginable element of cars. The driving is terrible. Glenn I've never seen such bad driving in my life like I I. They had to lay into Latin America. I had to close to close my eyes. I have actually and I I remember the driving. Being bad in the Dominican Republic as well but I had to like go. Oh crap and close my eyes more than once in you know being being driven around by a Cabbie or whatever it was pretty bad it was scary for those of us that liked to conform. The two rules would stop signs and stoplights yield. Those rules. Don't apply no thinks that's when things start getting a little fishy in our brains especially like the turn signals and the lane. The lane changing was the is the craziest one for me like they would. They would thread needles changing lanes. Like I've never say I saga go from like one lane to three lanes over swiping between cars. We're talking with lesson inch to spare And doing doing died without even thinking about it just not. That's that's how it goes. I was like. Are you freaking kidding me. My My. That's the other part. Heart that Cheryl would have been like no no piece. I would never break. I would never bring Cheryl to to China. I just think that she would engine i. I'm glad that I went and I know that my wife wouldn't have enjoyed it. Yes that's that's now that's a good China recap. That was good good. Yeah it was. It's there's so much and every once in a while I might bring something up later because I'm thinking about it a lot but it was. It was pretty interesting what's next year you got you saw an article the piqued your interest. Yes by one of your fellow Canadians. I think he's a Canadian because he he actually spoke at the impact education conference a few years ago. Yes it was called ties then. And he was one of the keynote speakers Dean Tureski. Can you say Dean Eski. I have to admit actually it's funny We get to meet a lot of people and we know like all all of the people that you know like the names of the people like the Alice Keeler and whatever would consider a lot of these people are friends and Don't get kind of of for lack of better words by by some of these folks anymore. But I totally FAM- void when I met Dean Sh- rescue for the first. It was at Austin at learn fast in Austin last summer and he was there and he's the only person I I ever went like. Hey Dean and then I didn't know what to say and then I totally went in for a hug. I'm like dude. I'm coming coming in for a hug and I don't care and he was like okay. It's like who is this who I what he actually came and introduced himself to me which which was probably what made it a little even more awkward. I wasn't expecting that but But it was dangerous be yes so dangerous. He tweeted and a link to another article from Forbes magazine and the title of that article is called called the myth of jobs that don't exist yet And it's a really good read. I would recommend anybody to go read it as you read through the article your countering several different basically One of the tweet Things you can actually tweet read from the top. Says the idea that any significant cont- portion of today's students will take jobs that don't exist yet is a myth and that's a super hot take. I've been so so so hi. It's flaming hot but as you get to the bottom of the article. That's why he went to read through the entire thing and I'm GonNa cut a preview the bottom for you he actually makes a statement that I think contradicts kind of this whole. There's a bunch of hot takes throughout the entire article but at the end the basically says The schools are doing an outstanding job. Right now number one which I like that part. But then he says something he says and to the extent that any future jobs are in transition or under development velopment schools and students alike are a wise to invest in good foundations of education. But here's one of the things he says right now. We're doing a great job in things. He's like critical reading communication creativity and collaboration but I always think that the premise of saying that were preparing students for jobs in the future. Do you know what I mean Mike. As far as the is the premise of we're hold on. We don't know what those jobs are going to be. But what can we prepare them right now. Well it's these things he talked about at the end. It's the communication creativity all the five CS collaboration It's it's those types of skills. So it's it's an interesting article and I thought it was interesting point especially we just had also had a great conversation with Noah guy so which on a different episode. You guys going to be up to listen to as far as our conversation. But I don't think I actually don't think that we talk about this enough. I agree I I actually. I think it's the exact opposite of what this guy's like depth like tick tick off at the world or yet at you edgy twitter world. Let's because we're talking too much about those jobs that don't existed. Hold us a when I talk enough about those things. Yeah it's it's an and I actually would just thinking back to how I'm not even prepared to speak enough about these topics because I actually am right now. Consuming tons and tons of information I remember just a probably within the past year Mike. People didn't know who Andrew Yang was the guy that's running for president in the United States by right but you told me about him And you said something about His minimum again. What universities you'll be universal missile basic income? That was the first time like that. I had ever heard that that phrasing universal basic income that was about a year ago when he was barely early on the horizon of whatever it might be okay now how yet but not only that. That's how educated. I was about not only universal basic income but the concepts that that Andrew Yanked talks about which is. I'm so hasn't started yet. That on the debate stage. He's actually speaking to this concept about artificial intelligence machine learning and the impact it will have nine ten to twenty years from now in a few in a few years. Here's from it's happening right now. Happening right on on the jobs that we currently just kind of take for granted that you can go ahead and do and one of them that really struck me. I was listening listening to him on another podcast at he was speaking about truck drivers. Yep and if you ever get out of it has yet to listen to Andrew Yang. Speak About about truck driving end. Not only his his capacity for like knowing and understanding that profession like he's actually spoke to truck driver he's there on the ground and then then he understands the economics of it how impactful it is in the United States and then how soon bad job will actually cease to exist on humans is to do and Phoenix and just that one segment he just talks about. He said you don't understand. How many people do that at?.

"Down what's going on between apple and Google and what it means for our schools and especially our students. We will discuss the importance of incorporating the sustainable development goals into our curriculum and our guest. This week is educator and author Michelle hike it so welcome to the show drew. Thank you for agreeing the coast host Co host today with me. Hey thank you I am just honored in completely humbled to take in Be Part of this for today end. Hopefully I do this justice right and hopefully when might here's a he's like. Alright Gameboy drew Carey show as in the negative way but anyway yeah so. Mike is off traveling to China actually for work and it was just thinking about this drew. What are some of those bucket list? Best the nation's for travel I know just recently I mean in your recent past you've been able able to travel for example to New York City. I've actually never been there. And so what are some of those places where you're like. I definitely want to go visit there sometime in my life. Yeah Yeah exactly So actually it's funny that you just asked me this because I'd say maybe a few months ago Stephanie. And I were having this conversation by Stephanie's my fiance okay for those that don't know and we were having this conversation of what our summer would be looking like right in terms of where we're going to go and attend conferences going to go and travel and so we actually made the decision of for me to not submit any sessions for is st or or any type of conference prince like you know big conference that you know so an essence what we said was we would forego any educational conferences and then we would hence use the money that we would have spent right to go and travel to South Korea and to go to Tokyo while. That's incredible so that's where we are hopefully going to be attending the summer. And we just gotta get everything planned but I know Stephanie is already looking at the prices and the the really cool thing about South Korea typically as you know Prior to being in the classroom so I had like my own independent tutoring business right and I was able to get in with the the Korean population within my community and most of my clients were were Korean right. And it's kind of odd the way that it works but they would come here and Lebanon community for roughly anywhere from two to four years. Because because you know how we're on the border with Mexico so if I'm not mistaken there's an algae factory right across the border in Mexico in Mexicali physicality so they come here and it was like a part of their assignment right where they could choose to go but they an essence. They had to travel though they had to go and leave of South Korea for like X.. Amount of time and so when they came here You know they they typically would live like in the Al Central Community and then they just commute to Mexicali so they'd WanNa learn English right so they could adapt and suited and then I was able to meet a lot of great individuals and since then you know many of them have gone back and so I'm hoping to actually visit them because I've stayed in contact with them. That is so awesome. Ah So interesting because you would never. I would never that that. This is a part of the community there in Oh yes central valley So I was thinking about. I've traveled to Central America several times and of course my family lived in Mexico. We were there quite often. But I've never into Europe So places like Spain and just just really just traveling throughout Europe. Oh that'd be it would be amazing Just the experience of actually being around that architecture history and Cetera. Those kinds of things. I think that would be end. The Food Oh yeah definitely so since as you mentioned Spain so I always joke with my students because they asked me about my last name a Ravelo and actually within Spain. There's I've researched researched it but there's like the small private and there's actually like an Ravelo and but really crazy thing about this as A. There's a castle there any like. Yeah exactly and you know on from like this lineage of kings and by my castle is awaiting my return so I I definitely like to go and actually visit a Ravelo one day. That'd be pretty exact. That is awesome. I love that so I wanted it to give our audience a quick update on the impact education conference. If you haven't already get registered for that conferences happening in a few weeks from now we're also putting on a podcasting podcasting workshop which we reference in the podcast often at its sexually very reasonable as far as to the ten that pre conference workshop and and no matter what come by and say hi we have some giveaways including things from fidgets One of our sponsors so I was thinking about drew. What conferences conferences as people think about the summer? We we do this kind of pre-planning should people kind of invest because it's an investment of Mono Yada whether it's a district funds or we have to pay for it. Somebody's GonNa have to spend some money. So what are those conferences that our viewers are listener. Sorry should be attending attending you know we have. FETC coming up in January. Ooh Miami yes and then we have the summer of course. The itchy conference is humongous. You know those kinds of things that I also was thinking about hugh and it's all of its affiliates. They're on the West Coast and throughout the you know Nevada I you were talking about which ones should they do. You think it's like okay. This is well worth that money. Oh yeah definitely yeah you know. In addition into the ones that you've mentioned I mean I had like my. My big moment was Attending Spring Q.. Two years ago right. So that was before Gameboy drew before any of that was like my world into you know like my view I should say into this new world of you know like connected educators. There's and things like that so it's on the west coast. It has a huge presence here and we are Q.. Is The the issue affiliate over here right so definitely. I'm getting excited cited for that one. That's in March and really calling about that won this years. It actually lands on my birthday right so as my birthday. uh-huh coming to my birthday right though birthday accu- exactly right so I'm getting excited for that. And then obviously asleep. FETC like you mentioned in Miami in January that one for me My first time attending was last year as well and it was it was Kinda scary simply because this is my first time traveling to the east coast and kind of like getting out of the queue organization. You know because I'm so involved involved in our local in on the local affiliate board and you know that's kind of been my my exposure but I was like I I kind of want to see what the East Coast is is doing or what different organizations are doing and so I went to last year and I absolutely found love believe it or not but that's actually where I met Mike. I'd never even heard of Mike so me. And I'm pretty amped for that. So and then the last one that I would mention to I mean you obviously you mentioned sc but there is a new one that started last year. Had like it's inauguration last year and it's actually yeah in San Diego and it's Ed innovate live who I love cats by it. It's actually put on through the University of San Diego and and the executive director. There's Lisa Dolly. I don't know if you know her. Mike Sorry Yeah. Yeah actually I mean. I know. We're through twitter but not through through anything else. 'cause she's she's associated with it. That's all I feel like you guys were just you know connect so wow into. She's into gaming and things like that so she's she's just like part of the pack like naturally and I absolutely love her and so she she put this one on right in addition to the University of San Diego and I just tacitly definitely recommend It's this summer in its from August. Second through the fourth so I actually will be at that one for sure. Oh nice and I was thinking about do one time in December. We're GONNA have to have appeared Minnesota the most beautiful time of the year for this impact education conference. 'cause you you gotta we gotTa try to get you out here. it's ex. It's actually happening third week. In December so the temperature should vary between minus minus something. I as you mentioned that like right away. The image in my head was from a Christmas story. You remember the little boy. Imagine Lincoln. Imagine me just right there. Showing up at the place on the desert You're freezing today back. We're telling you to put your right now. That'd be often what to actually be there. One day I mean yeah that was one of my bucket list things to be out over there. One day awesome so usually we talk different items that come up on twitter So this week I actually wanted to talk about something that you posted just yesterday. I believe so. It's so powerful for I. I think important for all of us to go ahead and basically stand up for all kinds of things as educators So often I felt felt that at the beginning of my career. I was actually told to just be quiet. The I just mind your business. Do your things in your classroom. Don't don't ruffle any feathers you know. And then thirty years down the road retire her. Whatever the statement that that's I was you you know given but let me read this tweet here? You said Mr Ravelo by so and so told me not to trust Mexicans. I could have ignored it. I could have sidestepped it but to not confront is to tolerate it and in my classroom. That simply isn't an option so so I thought it was super powerful Because it's it's an important. I think learning moment especially for our students to make sure that they're not just exposed to one thing those different perspectives. And then I I knew someone basically responded I said how did you handle it and I'm glad you do. You responded with with this. You said I describe my experience and I think that's the key right there I think that that's what holds us all back as far as not being able to basically get along especially the United States is we. Don't WanNA listen or we haven't been able to listen to the experience of the other otherside. Yeah whatever that other side may be and you said in people treating me differently because of my identity a personal examples which so important and shared how they made did you feel and then told him that other individuals view certainly didn't bat because that other person felt this way certainly didn't they didn't have to be the feel l. this way and then of course you and you know that Mexican too and that's important that happens you know. Obviously we've had these conversations before Mars race and identity and those kinds of things so tell us more about that like because I think a lot of teachers are scared to say so yes these things come up absolutely even actually just posting the tweet I was like yes. Shy posted tweet should I share. Should I should should i. You know and I know that there's so many other individuals who are in the space and you know fighting it and you know talking about it and discussing it but if you look at my feet I I typically don't say those types of things right and so I was like why am I going to hold back. This was something that happened in my classroom. And if you know me you know I basically basically most of what I share. Is this the experiences and the things that happened in my classroom with my students and and I keep it real one hundred percent right so it was was odd in the sense that it actually happened during a science lesson. And we were talking about you know forces out of all things forces and one of my students mentioned you briefly we're talking about accidents and forces behind. And then he said that he was involved.

"impact education conference" Discussed on OnEducation

"Winning High School principal the author of four books and a widely travelled speaker who will be the Tuesday keynote at impact education conference coming up in December. Welcome to the PODCAST. Jimmy Casas thank you very much nice to be here. Thank you so much for the opportunity so Jimmy takes us from principal to author to consultant and speaker fill in the blanks for Chris. A little bit. Tell us a little bit more about yourself. What's your what's your story lows like three questions go nuts? Let's to start with What's the story? Okay will first of all I'M GONNA. I'M NOT GONNA go way back but I'll just say this I didn't you know. Part of the reason was for three reasons reasons. One felt like I needed to for my parents by parents sacrifice. The lock provide the opportunities for us to be able to have an opportunity to go to school and neither one of my parents are formally educated educated My father dropped school in eighth grade. My mother dropped out of school and she was in ninth grade. They were. My father moved in with my mother's family when she was seventeen years old my parents were migrant orders and they traveled the circuit from Texas to California to Iowa in the nineteen sixty six. My parents made the decision to stay in Iowa on. If you know anything about the Latino culture that's usually not the the best thing to do when you separate family because us together as a family right especially when you're working to make ends meet and pay the bills and to do things to do to survive live but my parents made that sacrifice because they knew in order to break the generational cycle of poverty in order to buy the opportunities to have the quality of life that they they knew that they would never have right because they just knew they wouldn't right and so but they valued education and I was just on a friend of mine tonight that that my mother love school right. She loves to study in. Even though she's not formally educated. She loves everything about it so so number one. I felt like I owed it to that right because they stayed in Nyla. The rest of the family went back to Texas today. All My mother's family all my father's family all live in Texas Except us in. WE'RE STILL IN I. My parents are still living in so you can see what happened that that separation created that in that in that still exists today right and so you felt like today. I'm number two I had an assistant principal. I've talked about this a lot. My sister principal. Mr Morgan was truly might champion. Gentlemen who really took time every day to connect with me to due to advocate for the champion for me. Even though I didn't like school that wasn't good at school is struggling. School never wanted to school simply wanted to work. My father mother mother both have a tremendous work ethic and I just WanNa work right my parents were laborers. And and so that's all I wanNA do so but but I also also felt guilty because I knew how much they sacrificed so I felt obligated to continue to go to school and then In my senior high school I got expelled from school in Mr Morgan actually is the one who champion champion for me and help. My parents navigate a system that they just didn't understand but Eventually was reinstated back into school In so but but then just couldn't do the college thing right so I went to work. It's like I always wanted to do ended that year and was very successful at it. Actually sold insurance. Actually work for sales company accompany insult insurance for a year. Very good at it and thought that that's just where I was going to stay with my career but as things turn out Decided to go back to school and from that on just I don't know that life experience I think I think I matured and I think what we see a lot today. Is that not. Everybody is ready to go to college. Straight out of school and so that one year did a lot for me in terms of just allow me to grow up on my own figure out what I wanted to do and as soon as I I realized that I didn't WanNa work like that. The rest of my life. I actually wanted to be educated so that women decision to go back to school and then I whip back to school in in pursued bilingual. Ed and then I did some volunteer at elementary school and I was city Iowa and just fell in love with it and and so decided at that point to go ahead and go back into education and And then took my first job in Milwaukee public schools. And what's really interesting gene. As I tell people at the age of twenty six I took my first principal job and the first person I walk for recycling parents within after that I called Mr Morgan and It's just interesting right to say to the age of twenty six is about you know about seven years later. Hey we're colleagues now right. I mean I'd never even GonNa Graduate High High School. I'm embarrassed to tell you in a way I graduated with a one point six nine GPA. But I made it but with a lot of health a lot of people so so that's I got my career began. I started teaching walkabout. Schools became a principal at age. Twenty six served in that role. The principal three different districts for twenty two years so total twenty six years in education and then left the profession three years ago on to pursue this passion right I tell people I've been speaking since I was probably twenty six years old. I started doing a little bit more serious when I was about thirty years old when I moved back to Iowa I was thirty years old and and at that time had already been a principal for four years and it just felt like I wanted to work with other new principals and kind of mentor them and be a part of you know supporting them in their work each day so I just got into it. Fell fell into it and I tell people. I spoke at workshops and conferences Mainly in my state of Iowa But I did for eighteen years for free right like got paid a penny for it. I did speak at national conferences like. NASA's P in these types of different types of conferences but but it wasn't until two thousand twelve. When I was was named Iowa principle the year and then follow that up with a runner up national principle the year and then had the opportunity because of that experience had the opportunity to speak at Naacp in front of a larger audience and once that happened the phone started ringing? It's never stopped ringing sets and so I just feel very blessed to have the opportunity to be able to to support other administrators in this workers. We know how difficult it is and I feel really good about doing that today. And so so yes. The three years ago I made the decision the legal profession Because it's hard to balance both right. I mean there is a point where you have to make a decision you know. How much do you WANNA travel that time I was you know house probably travelled once or twice a month the principal and then a little bit ordering the summer but you know my I only had twenty five vacation days those days get used in that all these calls? I can't I do because I don't have a days left to do it so so for three years. I did that and thought about making the jump like everybody else you know when people call me today in saying he Jimmy Nia. I WanNa do what you do. I was telling the same thing. Don't quit your day job because it's a different kind of grind rights different kinds of work in people don't realize that and so but if you love to travel and Yeah I mean I I love it. I don't have not got tired of the travel yet. I enjoy it I tell people all the time. This isn't like a real job. I mean the people that are actually working in schools today. That's a real job right. I mean I know what that grinds like. I did it for twenty two years. That's a grind. That's a rogue rind and around But I don't really have any emails. Nobody ever yells at me. Nobody's of us that the patient is completely different on Kinda disarm my own pace now and it's kind of cool right and so we'll see how long it lasts. You know how. How long can you sustain it when you're out of the profession quote unquote right? But so far I still feel like we're still got a lot of work to do and and I liked the entrepreneurial side of it is well. My parents were always kind of like the American dream. Right they were always dabbling in different things trying the they liked the business side of things and and as much as I love education. I still love it. I still believe I have a good run left emi so if I ever decide I wanna go back into the profession and I mean I still feel like I could do a ten-year rent somewhere. I think are the energy and the passion the drive to do that. I'm not sure I would do a principal job because of You know I feel like I would do like maybe a superintendent's role or something like that. Just because I'd want a different kind of challenge after having served as principal for twenty two years but but yeah so that's it's kind of my story right there and just kind of how the profession In the speaking and so forth. And then you know with that obviously is the writing and so forth and to begin a blog log that started about I guess it's been out for about seven and a half years ago now and started blogging and And even though I didn't want to because it's hard to to go down that and make your cellphone won't put yourself out there. But they really encouraged me to do that. So that's kind of how I started build a little bit of confidence in the writing aspect and then had the good fortune in a meeting. You know a good friend of mine today. Zoll through his connection at tot whitaker. And then next thing you now. They're asking me to write a book with them. What you don't say not? So what you do that. Then it's Kinda Kinda it's Kinda crazy but they taught me a process it let me build the confidence and then we follow that up with another book and then and then I finally had the opportunity with the good fortune. Dave Burgess who had been been reading a lot of my blogs you know saying hey you got a story in there. I want you to share your story at loved to Publish Your Book and and so I'm just so grateful to him he's published. You know three now soon to be four books of mine because we have another book coming out here probably at the end of March or beginning of April but and so I saw a lot of peop- you know low. I owe a lot of gratitude. A lot of people people in his. I always say you know you don't get anywhere in life without the help of other people so I've just been really blessed because I have a lot of people who have always just I don't know why but people tend to carry my banner and people tend to champion for me and so under super grateful for those individuals changes though to help long journey..

This should come out just before This this this thing is happening a collaborative discussion about community and community building living in social learning With the folks at participate is happening on Thursday November twenty first at two o'clock We will put the registration link for a Webinar. So you can just kinda chill and joy and talk and So that's that's what's happening. What's going on what Has Your has your week been. It's been great. The weekends usually go by so fast. You know we talk about that on Friday going like I want to play video games. It is a being that You you had to have the do adulting. You know you still got to do the things that you have to do. As as adults and it was awesome there still was a great weekend actually Shea did this virtual reality thing yes okay. So the virtual reality component was just. Okay it was it was a they. Had OCULUS quests so they do I once so those were fantastic. Those are amazing and there was probably WANNA say at least forty people who got experience the virtual reality thanks so I was forty of them. Headsets that we were doing what the the premise was is. They played this three dimensional or virtual reality video of a local national park here in Minnesota as so a kind of a walk through. It was amazing. And while you're doing that there's a live Orchestra Bayer Aruba. I want to call it you know. I guess it's kind of a it was a it was in a band. It wasn't an orchestra but it was definitely eh musical group and it was the strangest music you've ever heard in your whole life third. I've listened the all kinds of stuff like human group strange. Because that's the thing I've ever seen. I Love Blue Man Gr by love. That's that's step aside like user weird as hell. Oh Yeah. They're super weird. But it's it's there's something to it. Though this was it I would maybe not referred to it as exactly on the musical side is maybe a more of a soundscape. What better way to describe it and it was out of this world? That's the best record described. There's a lady lady who was singing and she had an operatic type of voice. Beautiful voice was singing strangely as the best. Describe it and then there was. All of these crazy sounds that were being made with typical instruments. Whatever may it was an hour and a half experience spirits of one of the things I told my wife we laughed? I was like one thing. That's good is I will never forget this so something you know. There's a lot of obviously we go and see and we go do all kinds of things that we get. 'em Real easy. I will never forget this moment hilarious. I'm I'm still playing. The hallowed of oxygen included in fact. I've probably implying more now than I was last week now getting now. I'm I'm like trying to teach myself like to build complex like industrial systems in the game to like do things and so I'm using like sandbox mode to like to game employed the mode and like how you're getting into it it's exhausting. I'm dreaming about it. I'm totally dreaming about like running insulated ventilation pipes and how to hook up the power to everything and making sure that I have insulated walls around on my hydrogen fence. It's so video games too much. which word because all encompassing and then eventually just let it go? You're like it's taking over my life. I've done it was kind of like farm together with us. I I totally forgot about Google Stadia in the coming year this week I think our friends Steve Isaacs spot one. He's yeah I'm really interested to see what he thinks about it. Does it really run at the speed that they're talking about that. It's going to be this amazing Console Council without a console. I mean that's really what it is and so Super excited about it. It's launching this week as I really want to hear some people that do purchase it. I want to hear their feedback In that in the gaming World Google Stadia So I reach out to Steve and anybody else. Let's see what happens with that. So in the in the world of articles in news and stuff we have helpful things This this article came up and I remember you posted something on twitter terrible being given a whole bunch of lessons when you first started teaching I wasn't but I. I think that this is a big problem. Where new teachers you know show up and especially team teachers especially teachers like if you're a if you start grade three for example and there are two other grade three teachers that are already there? And you're the third one and and they've been teaching together for twenty years and then you're the new kid and they literally hand you a binder and say you know go photocopy this this. This is what we're doing and like that's not bad very blake to make it to be really simple okay segment done. No I mean talk talk about this a little bit because obviously that's not a good practice for a new teacher To be in at all what we're were were not saying that it's bad that's a you share these items and that teacher go ahead and takes these things and starts figuring out okay okay. What's my the curriculum that I'm going to be working through whereby standards that have that? I need to make sure that I teach and all of those things of course and then you have a structure. That's already been laid out for you by someone else. That's fantastic. The problem comes in when you just take that and then that's what you teach that exact thing that was handed to you is what you're what you are delivering. The problem with that is that you're not part of that lesson. You're not invested You Mike Washburn who loves playing video games and loves all kinds of different things at passions Shinzo all kinds of music and all these things. Well that's not going to be reflected in some random person that you just you became part of their near thirteen. So you WanNa make make sure that all of those things show up in whatever. You're creating the things that you're passionate about the way that you even deliver. Those lessons should be unique to you. Because that's the art as we've talked about before I think on the podcast and even off the podcast. There's an art to teaching. And that's the part you can never never replaced you know when people talked about like. I've heard some things to say all of this technology and eventually we're going to be replaced by robots or whatever technology whatever whatever might be and that section I ever going to be the case and the reason why is because there's a craft a skill an art to the teaching process human site exactly and the you can't replace that and if you don't still have that as part of your teaching cat it I couldn't imagine even wanting to continue to teach for a long time much less it being enjoyable so definitely take in all of those things and then make the things your own. And that's the reason why things like teachers pay. Teachers can less that people just deliver. You know. That's what you do. If you're using that to spark tonight tonight DEA revamp it and I know a lot of people do this. They go onto like sites like teachers. Pay Teachers don't buy the lessons. See kind of like an idea of something go like I can make that a million times better fantastic. You do that you make it in your own way. It's it's just a there's something to and you're a WHO's the people that will be able to see right through you delivering lessons at someone just handed to you your students. They know you're are invested and they know when you're like passionate about whatever it is that you're doing they also know when you're not and if and they are going to be the first people that are going to see that and then they're gonNA lose interest they're going to be gay they don't really care about. Why should I care about it and so on and so forth so so for sure? Make sure that you take a AH if you're a new teacher especially it's okay to go ahead and do your thing your own version of whatever for the curriculum that you're supposed to be teaching. Listen I don't know what to say any more about the eleventh school shooting of the year That we haven't already said you know. I mean ten other times to us because I think we talk about it every time. I think we feel feel like we should at least mentioned it. I mean we. We generally always this first segment. We always have to prune things off of the off the list of ideas By you can't prune talking about it Because there you got to pay your respects and and Oh you know keep the conversation going at the very least because I mean we gotta keep talking about it. It's gotta be top of mind. Please make it a important aspect of the election. People need to be asking their representatives tentatives and senators For their thoughts on this on what they're going to do constantly yes and and the only thing the I. I honestly think the only thing that.

Go Elysium I watched your stream a little bit off. It's a freaking weird game. It's super strange. Definitely for mature audiences of pre warned. Everybody so don't have the kids around It's just is super weird. I've now played played. I played some of it online and then as far as streaming that I've played probably about four or five hours of it and it is a detective. The game is a good way to describe it. Kind of reminds me of it has the feeling of a sherlock holmes kind of feeling like Eh dystopia and in that way so so everything is really Kinda grungy and not very nice you know kind of the World Oh and the way the characters interacted to talk to each other has fantastic music that they've set this world to the characters are crazy amazing and like really gross but but really compelling so really enjoy get high as someone said. They highly recommended that we played this game and I could see why it just so different than anything else. Yes I definitely still hooked John Oxygen on included yes.

Oh and Steve Isaacs is November tenth. Isn't that crazy. Yeah so it's remembrance. Day and Canada Veterans Day. Yup is veterans safe for us. Ed Yes so I I I like a AH people have like every once in a while someone says. Don't you hate having your birthday on a day that get it gets completely overshadowed by by remembrance saying and I'm like now at actually you know what's really cool about having your birthday on Remembrance Day is that it has caused me more often than not to be super reflective about my life and about you know my family and the opportunities that I've been afforded because you know my great great grandfathers and great grandfathers You know went and fought these wars that I couldn't possibly imagine participating in So you know so I and I think it contributes to this whole idea of why I'm a history major your two like why I'm into history and certainly also have studied quite a bit about specifically about World War but war and stuff like that. What is you know part of this whole this whole narrative of of just being completely in awe of what people did? And you know I I wrote a a twitter thread At and I would encourage you. No please go back and read it because you know it was. It was today so November eleventh around around five o'clock four o'clock in the afternoon About it you know just like I'm trying to generate some imagery but the guy going over the top in the trench just totally knows. He's going to die yet. Goes anyways or that. First person off the boat when they're storming the beaches of Normandy for example who oh totally like. They opened the door like in that image is. What's that movie with Tom? Hanks Saving Private Ryan Rare. Where where they that imagery is so real where they opened the gate for all the soldiers to pour off the boat and the guys at the front are dead before before they even get off the boat and that sort of bravery that sort of selflessness is not lost on me and and I think about it a lot today and how thankful I That you know I'm doing what I'm doing and and with my family and and how you know how many opportunities we have All because of the sacrifice of you know these folks You know our our family members and service people all over the place so so pretty thankful today. Forty is kind of weird forty today budding and just laughing. 'cause you reach the pentacle forties. Pretty good. I I I've been I've been thinking about it From a couple other context but one of the main ones is I used to joke. I was always like I always used to the joke. That I'm thirty five going on sixty what I used to say all the time because I always felt like garbage all the time and I was tired and just worn out and beat up and I I swear to God guys. I don't feel like that today I am forty and I'm and I'm forty and that feels really good going Loyd on twenty nine baby when I you know I I'm I'm incredibly determined to feel better and more healthy in my forties than I was in my thirties thirties I'm hoping that my thirties were my worst decade in terms of my health and I think I think on a roll you you. You're you're you're still doing hot yoga. I know I just wanted to bring this up because I did it This morning at five. Am and there's nothing. I can imagine doing less than five hundred and this specific type of Hot Yoga Mike. There's different different types of sessions. Lignite just described. I didn't even realize any of this was the case but now I'm realizing that and one of them one of the types is called restorative and it's really it's a lower temperature in the room and you do these long holds of these poses and it's fantastic. It's Mickley like a an amazing stretching session right. It's difficult to I've been it's not but on the scale of when the Ted it's probably like a like a seven right so this should that I did this morning. Morning is totally about basically getting a High intensity interval training. I don't know if you've ever heard of that hit training. It's it's basically wave a combination of hot yoga and hypertensive intensity interval training and weight training. Right sounds terrible. All in one one session that sixty minutes inside of a room. That's baking. It's baking I mean. This is the hot one and and what was funny about it. Is that at the end. The whole session happens whatever might be and the instructor look at me with this kind of like. She felt sorry for me face like like you did a good job session like you did horribly. I'm gonNA tell you 'cause everybody else was ABC talent. You everybody that was in there was dominating the freaking workout like just just just doing great and you were. We're being on it was. Oh my goodness. There was some points in there where I was. I was contemplating stopping. And I'm like no I got to work through this. I can actually do this and then I was like. Why am I doing this but I made it through? It's the second time I've done this specific type but never never at five. AM in the morning. So I just wanted to tell people if you want an intense workout and you want to do something completely different that you've ever done as far as workout wise this might beer beer cup of tea And I mean I'm super impressed by the instructors. The people that go to these things. But I'M GONNA be back I am I am like I know that that lady didn't think I was ever going to come back but I'm GONNA be back on the shores. That's this pathetic. Guira here is going to be like Abu. Ah Do this. You're in for it. That's amazing so we We interviewed mayor. was that three weeks ago and and the the style of the interview was different than we've ever done. And I referenced. A Youtube channel that I'm a giant called hot ones and then you've jumped on the hot ones train. Oh my God. We needed provide a link to this amazing. It is so could. Yeah and I it was actually describing it to my wife and she just looked at me and said it sounds really dumb and I'm delighted she looking you the way so you looked at me when I describe it for the radio. You don't understand though So I watched. I've seen now three of them. I what I saw the one With Chef Gordon Ramsay. Which is so hilarious as Gordon? Ramsay anyway you should watch that. Make sure your kids aren't in the room because there's a lot of F. bombs in it you The one with the the the actress who plays Arya Stark in made okay. I can't remember her. Her last name at the made is something amazing William macy Williams. She supercross she's on their vanish. Akilah neal was the last one that I watched Started watching this weekend. Watch the couple of. I'm just like now go like this. Is the both hilarious show because of those Dang hotlinks. Yeah it's a great interview by the way it's an interview interview guy. And then the guy is participating in the eating of these Dang hot wings that are not even just flaming flaming hot like incredible levels of here just like in the million skilled and billions people should not touching it. This guy's ex is currently protested like it's like a meeting acid right now. It's like yeah that's kind of on that level. The corrosiveness probably a vast participated but still being super professional by asking. Can these questions. The people are melting down. Because they're just they're just I fire a fantastic so like if you wanted.

It is an extremely violent game with lots of inappropriate huber which yeah this is a do as I say not as I do. Moment is great for adults but not so great for anybody else but man we were cracking up at laughing and very funny having a good time because it's just the the creators of this game just takes things to a new level as far as the humor the crude humor. I guess that's a good way to be able to describe it. Super Fun to play multiplayer gave so if you guys are out there you're interested instead of a CO OP shooter game. It's pretty funny. It's fun. Yes I'll tell you if you pull like the humor and and it kind of the violence out of the context of the game itself. It's an amazing piece of work the the art styles like if you're not familiar with borderlands games. It's got a very unique unique. I hate. I can't believe I just said very unique. I hate when people say very unique. anyways it has nothing can be very unique. Things are unique unique or they're not unique. They're not very unique. They're not more anyways.

We're going to be doing live shows in three different places from what it seems like I can gather. We're going to have our table setup up and then we're going to have our set up in the big area. I don't know I've never been to this venue so I don't know what the Ba- Gary is other than that. I know that there's a big area and we're talking working in it at some point and then our own room.

Join us. That'd be awesome so we're still putting shooting videos out on youtube every day. It's part of my morning routine with the coffee putting out a new episode II new old episode of Yvonne Education But we have a contest so we've been kinda plugging this contest a little bit We have hoodies awesome. I I just bought one for myself. Nice the other day and I'm excited to rocket but what we want is we need some people to subscribe to our channel.

There's been a couple already that have been pretty funny and we'll pick a winner after we get one hundred subscribers is hi so when we get to at least one hundred subscribers we will we will pick a date and pick if it seems like it's really still going. We'll let people still subscribe because obviously we'd. I'd like more but you can win a Hoodie. That's like it's worth like eighty seventy bucks sixty bucks. It was seventy bucks Canadian. It's not cheap. That's a better top-quality quatrieme Hoodie. That's a premium hoodie baby of everyone in my life yeah so we're also coming up real close to episode one hundred. This is technically. This is episode so ninety four the ninety fourth recording that is public so that's that's actually more of a qualifier because 'cause we have obviously the infamous episodes zero which doesn't count so this is ninety four. We have a whole bunch of stuff coming all in like the next couple of weeks. It's going to be bonkers. we just finished talking to an atom from Flip Grid. That'll be this week as well. We're talking to our friends from class craft next week. also next week. We're talking to Stephen Read the minecraft he's extraordinaire genius friend of the the Pod even though he's never been on both of our friends though he's there. He's another hilarious guy. That's GonNa be so excited we. We've got a pretty pretty cool guest coming up maxine Durand from UBISOFT Video Game Company. He is one of the producers of the a new the grease discovery tour game. That's built on assassin's creed so we're going to talk to him. episode ninety nine is Adam. Welcome mm-hmm. I think if he's listening to this is going to be upset. He's not episode one hundred that he's ninety nine instead but Adam welcomes pretty cool. We're excited to have him on and then I think we're going to dig ditches for episode one hundred. I think that seems appropriate super appropriate. We should definitely do it. I think we have special chill episode throwing a bit of a gauntlet down to Noah to to bring it to bring it like he's never brought before uh-huh pretty sued actually yeah yeah so that's that's six episodes in the next two and a half weeks. That's baby content pretty exciting. It looks like I think both of us us. Actually I mean I'm turning forty seven weeks getting talent. I've been thinking a lot about my health health. I've been thinking a lot about health for a little while. Now I mean I reference it in my keynote and so I talk about it a bit and so I actually just bought a bike trainer and did my first real ride today which is super exciting road around Central Park in Manhattan very virtually on my ipad and it was are really neat but you're thinking about health to yes and I would just having a conversation that only with my wife but just some friends about how we we tend to spend so much money at least United States because we we don't have a healthcare system for free only after we get ill and it came about actually the conversation because one of my kids got sick this this past week and we were just talking just in general about how much money we end up spending after the fact that we gets sick instead of spending money upfront on ourselves the supplements in exercise equipment as you described bribed or even a gym membership or you know. I I'm convincing my wife to let's do thirty days because there's a deal going on right without thirty straight days of hot yoga you know the funny part about of Mike is I hardly ever do yoga general. I've never been done hot yoga and I'm committed. I want to commit the thirty straight days of it but all of these things just in the name of just being healthy you you know and then preempt Lincolnshire. That's I can do the things and have the energy to do the things that I wanna do all of the things that that you know that are thrown on us all the opportunities that we have can do all of those things could still be a fit and be able to play with my kids and do all of those those things and then live a nice long healthy life you know so. I think that's an important part that we tend to miss an opportunity for be even though you're spend money up front you know on supplements and this and whatever might be as long as you're spending on yourself to be able to make a a your life that much better you should do that. I think food is included in that one too because a lot of times we we tend to and I would just generalizing coming up people and I I do this. I could save myself. You spend less money on food. Even though the quality of that food is going to be you know not as good and so the spending good spending money on food shouldn't be something that's sad about that set that spend money on good quality food that you're gonNA take it to your body and keep yourself healthy and strong and those types of things live a nice long life so thinking about that as as the beginning of the year has has ruled itself out. I've challenged myself a few times over the last couple of months to like we get take out a fair bit a little bit more more than we would like to from a financial perspective. I guess yeah but I mean my default kind of position or my default. Goto thing for takeout is like chicken wings and so I've been challenging myself to like stop and think about what I actually want to get when it comes so like take out and getting things like Vietnamese food which is quite a bit healthier or faux or you know whatever something that's healthier ear even a salad even a chicken salad or something like that instead of getting wings or you know. Putin which you know is awesome. It's hard to say for people that don't know what Putin is. You should describe it to them. 'cause I'd never had heard of it until I came to the Mid West and then I saw this plate plate full of Alec described as a bunch of cheese and then Clayton and things that were not healthy but delicious yes so Putin is French fries with ideally cheese. Kurds people do other things some cheaper restaurants or whatever will put like shredded cheese on it and stuff like that but it's ideally cheese. Kurds and gravy what you you like you go to Montreal and it's like you know like when you go to different cities and there's a special dish or whatever the like you go to Nashville. You have to have hot chicken and you know whatever Putin is like the required dish of going Montreal so but it's pretty popular everywhere you know we're normal. People live anyways so you should you should ah I had never even heard of it for the southwest. They say Putin has like what is that. I've been aided. I was like holy. This is amazing in horrible for you horrible for you..

Thank you so much. We are delighted to be here. Yes super excited china so just a general question. Let's start off with <hes> impact education conference <hes> tell us more about it and then tell us what are the differences. Maybe maybe between impacts education conference ties or maybe some similarities because we all love kyw's conference sure thanks glenn so ties the entice conference was for many years kind of the branding of the conference that was part of the organization ties and over the last year or so we have had a change change in ownership of our organization to source while technology and renaming to source well technology so we are continuing to still defined what is known as the ties conference but we have rebranded it and we are now calling it. The impact education conference <hes> asked ask part of our whole new push outlook in brands <hes> for this new endeavor so we noticed and we've mentioned it on the podcast but but we're super excited that you guys are offering books. <hes> not swag bags eggs <hes> for your <hes> pakistan. We'd like to think that we were helpful in that decision but <hes> we wanted to get you to talk about why you made that decision. Vision kind of the genesis of the idea and you know what you guys are offering <hes> as far as the books go in terms of like who and and all of that stuff. I love this idea so let's talk a little bit more about it sure things my <hes> well part of the impedance despite the books did indeed come from the on education podcast because happen to be listening one night and you were interviewing jordan sapiro whose book the new childhood <hes> really struck my interest in so we started to talk about it as a team and we all all agreed that as most of us in most of the people we know have cupboard's full of water bottles that come tumbling out every time we obama october mom person can only use so many grocery bay and some other conference type sways we just decided that <hes> it would be just as effective or more effective to invest in the books for our featured in keynote speakers <hes> and so oh that's what led us to that decision and <hes> had us decide to offer the books as part of registration instead of your typical conference conference types wake so what books what books are we talking about though so we have in cindy will help me if i forget it have <hes> we have jordan shapiro's the new childhood which is an amazing book which is amazing book and i'm working my way through that even <unk> as we speak tonight it's fascinating and then we also have <hes> the book by jimmy casas..

"You may need more focus more time for <hes> individual answering of questions. I was thinking like in sciences or math but again. I could just be inventing this. It'd be interesting to hear from our audience. What what what would be the ideal number. Yes so what we're gonna do and and i mean to get super good results this this requires volume so we're hoping to get some some solid participation on this <hes> probably more than we've gotten on some other things so we're hoping for some re tweets and some shares but what we're what we're really would like to. We're interested in like actually getting real legitimate numbers on on your class right now <hes> and whether you we're also what you teach you know and and and maybe even wear <hes> by and we want to know whether it's actually having them whether you feel like it's having an impact impact on your teaching. We'll kind of rate that from one to ten so we're going to do a survey and we're going to post it all the places we posted so we're going to put it on the blog doug <hes>. We're gonna put it in the chat. We're gonna do a question related to class size and <hes> and we'll lincoln on twitter and we're hoping to get get people to share it out because <hes> we'll come back and talk about this next week <hes> and and see where we're at there's any interesting numbers. We may if we feel like we didn't get enough results. Maybe we'll push it again. <hes> maybe we'll push for a couple of weeks even and and see if we can get some good solid. I'd like to get or even causing good number one hundred hundred hundred dollars hundred votes. Let's as we could get one hundred data points. I'd probably be i'd probably be happy. That'd be that'd be that would give us some really really interesting information that would be. We're talking about so we're going to create a little survey. They'll take you just a couple of seconds to fill out. <hes> were super interested in knowing the size of your class so we're gonna do that this week and we'll push it out and then we'll see where we're at. If it takes off then we'll be good and we'll talk about it next week. If it needs a little more time we'll we'll keep talking talking better on the pod and we'll <hes> we'll get it two hundred. Maybe we'll start talking about it once. We get one hundred and we'll <hes> we'll see where we're at because we're really super interested in this. I think that this is a fascinating conversation <hes> and i i'd like to know with the real. Numbers are <hes> you know. It's it's funny like these articles on the domain registry. These are outliers like fifty nine. Kids in the class is like an anomaly for sure i still i honestly still think that it makes for a really funny any interesting now. Finding the joke is still funny. Fifty-nine kissing the yearbook classes still hilarious no matter which way you cut it i love it but by yeah right right no and it is not safe so there is things about this at aren't funny <hes> but we'd like to know what's really the reality the other than these like anomalies that appear in the newspaper because they're weird situations so we're gonna do survey. We'll see how it goes so so good sounds amazing <unk> it. When we come back we'll talk to our friends from source well technology about impact education conference. That's happening a little later. This year here in minnesota so stay with us on education is brought to you by fresh grade..
