Can You See Me On The Screen? Great. Can You See The Calculus Notes? Oh No.|Teachers' Lounge Podcast

Oct 2, 2020

On a new episode of Teachers’ Lounge, we have Jason Cavanaugh. He’s a high school math teacher and baseball coach in Sycamore.

They’re learning remotely. So, Jason is going into his empty, retrofitted math class to teach kids who are at home. Obviously, he’s never done this before, the students haven’t either. And, as you can imagine, the technology is not always flawless.

Jason talked to host Peter Medlin about a day-in-the-life of what digital learning looks like now and how it will change the education landscape into the future. They also chatted about his first year without baseball in as long as he can remember and his players who missed their senior season.

In the meantime, we want you to be a part of the show. Send us an email at teacherslounge@niu.edu and tell us how you’re feeling about in-person or virtual school this fall. And, if you want, record your thoughts and feelings into your phone with your voice memos app, then send the file to teacherslounge@niu.edu and we could feature it on the show. You can also email us there to nominate teachers to be featured on the podcast!
