We are joined by international guest, Paul Alberts. He was my student teacher several years ago, while Young was my student. We reflect on student teaching as whole. Then we discuss our different experiences with remote learning and what we think this all means for the future of education.

We discuss the Coronavirus from the perspective of a new college student, student teacher, looking for jobs, and working in a school district. Then we think about how this pandemic might bring change to the education system. Maybe the answer is to remove subject silos and integrate learning using Newsela and CommonLit. Our biggest breakthrough is that we may be able to literally solve the world’s problems from home using PBL and the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. Enjoy!
