Hello! I'm back today with another episode all about the popular buzzword "asynchronous"! Love it or hate it, it's here and it's part of education as we know it.

In this episode, you will learn the benefits of asynchronous learning, some creative ideas for asynchronous activities that you can do in your hybrid/blended and distance learning classroom, as well as how to deliver effective morning meetings with asynchronous learning.

[141] The secret to well-being for teachers

August 18, 2019

Oh hey, I'm back! I hope you had a restful break if you were off and that you're raring to go this school year!

This episode is all about the secret to well-being for teachers. "Well-being" has become a bit of a buzz word recently, but in some cases the true essence has been watered down to basic advice like "have a bubble bath and drink wine" that isn't actually helpful...

In fact, well-being is so much more than just unwinding at the end of the day. In this episode you will learn what well-being really is and you'll gain actionable tips for how you can take control to maintain a positive well-being this school year! 

This is lesson 1 of a brand new pod-course on the topic well-being for teachers. The rest of the lessons will be launched every week elsewhere. If you want to access all 7 lessons for free and you're here before August 25th 2019, you can sign up here:
