Teach Me, Teacher

#132 It’s Time to Stop Banning Phones (Jessica Golz pt.2)

October 06, 2019

Hello everyone! Today I'm super excited to bring you part two of my talk with the one and only Jessica Golz (@teachergolz)! If you missed part one, check it out here. 

In this episode, we continue our discussion about STEM, why it's important, and why we should all be embracing it in our schools. But we also hit on a special topic that I see floated around in the teacher sphere quite often... CELL PHONES in the classroom (gasp).

Are they evil? 

Are they nothing but distractors?

Do they hurt the learning in classrooms? 

Well, if you read the title of this episode, you might know how we feel, but what do you think? Listen to our talk, and then share your thoughts on the issue! I know you have some...

Jessica is such a great force for good in education. She has her eyes on the horizon for what’s new, but she also has a healthy idea for quality literacy and what it means to meet students where their interests are.

Don’t miss this episode.

But before you go off and listen, consider supporting the podcast by grabbing a copy of Teach Me, Teacher, Life Lessons that Taught Me How to be a Better Teacher. Written in celebration of teachers and the power of education, Teach Me, Teacher affirms that you have the power to save a life. If you need to remember your why, or gain insight into the mind of a child who endured trauma at home, and how school saved him (me), this is the book for you.
Check out the book here.
