Episode 2

This week, the show is broadcasting its second and final episode from the Florida Charter School Conference in Orlando. We are back in the Academica Media Studio next week! First, Sarah, Mike, and Ryan talk about a recent article in Ed Week outlining actionable strategies that principals can employ to fortify relationships with their teachers and boost teacher retention in the process. Next, our hosts discuss Hispanic Heritage Month and what schools can do to avoid superficial celebrations of Hispanic heritage and embrace a deeper dive into the wide variety of cultures we celebrate in September and October. The show closes by talking about an Ed Week article by Rhett Oldham about how teachers can use smartphones to enhance classroom learning.   Articles: https://www.edweek.org/ew/articles/2018/10/17/what-principals-can-do-to-keep-good.html http://blogs.edweek.org/edweek/global_learning/2018/10/4_ways_to_integrate_smartphones_into_your_classroom.html
