You may have noticed that we haven’t put an episode out for a short while. Effectively we’ve been on an unenforced hiatus. Don’t worry, there are plenty more episodes ready to release, but I will be putting those off until August and our anticipated return to school. So why the hiatus? Well, apart from it being the Summer, and we are still in the middle of a pandemic, and with all the uncertainty of if, when, and how, schools and colleges will reopen in the fall, which entails even more planning for multiple models of course delivery, which takes up even more time than normal. Plus the professional development and scholarship that teachers and teacher educators have to do during the summer, we’ve also had a family emergency.  Please share or contribute to Alex' GoFundMe page: https://gf.me/u/ycpfst  This podcast is a proud member of Edjacent, a design collaborative made up of educators who dream of a better world for our students and their teachers.

In today’s episode we will address responses to the recent political situation and ask the question, is teaching political? This topic arises comes from an online communication I had with a colleague this week. It prompted me to write a blog post, published by our friends in Edjacent, and addressed in this podcast as a Dear Doctor D question.

In today’s episode we will wrap up our conversation with Meghan Raftery. We talk about how educators can be agents for positive change, and we consider what how we might do schools and schooling a little different once the restrictions caused by the Covid 19 pandemic are lifted. Meghan talks about parent’s perspectives of homeschooling both before and during this pandemic, the role schools play beyond filling kids with facts, and how we think about meeting society's new needs in the future can be a catalyst for critical conversations about the way forward in education. Change is a recurring topic in this episode.

In today’s episode we hear some more from Meghan Raftery, as she describes her life working outside the world of public education, and then we talk about how to create change and innovate in an environment where it seems impossible to do so.  You can follow Meghan on Twitter @meg5han.

In today’s episode we hear a teacher’s story. Meghan Raftery shares her quite unique career path from that of an elementary teacher, to her new role in the private sector. Her’s is a fascinating and unconventional path. We talked via Zoom in the first week of the coronavirus lockdown. As sometimes happens with these tools, sound quality can be patchy. But I think her story is valuable and insightful. You can follow Meghan on Twitter @meg5han.

In this episode I talk with Theo, Brenna, Aisling, and Phaedra about their experiences and their thoughts about the necessary, but sudden shift to online or remote learning. They share what is and isn't working for them over a wide range of topics. It's not often we get to hear from students, so this makes for an interesting conversation. I encourage parents, teachers, administrators, researchers, and other students to give this a listen and let me know your thoughts. We will have more from them in our next episode too.  This podcast is a proud member of Edjacent, a design collaborative made up of educators who dream of a better world for our students and their teachers.
