Description

It’s easy to see a child’s education as a path determined by grades, test scores and extra curricular activities. But genuine learning is about so much more than the points schools tally. MindShift explores the future of education by investigating innovations and issues that are shaping how kids learn. Emotional safety, trust, and relationships: this season, we investigate the intangible, and often overlooked, elements of academic success. You’ll hear how teacher home visits can help parents see themselves as a valued a partner in their child’s education; how far a public high school goes to develop an inclusive experience for the crucial transition to ninth grade; how parents and schools can address childhood trauma so it doesn’t become an obstacle to learning, and what parents and communities can do to help kids grow. This podcast is part of the MindShift education site, a division of KQED News. KQED is an NPR/PBS member station based in San Francisco.

I absolutely love this podcast. More more!!

An authentic peek

I love this. As an educator for over a decade, it feels very important and redeeming to listen to a podcast that is willing take a deeper look into the impact of education and of educators, on our culture. Intellectual, yet incredibly tangible. Entertaining and serious. I both laughed, and was challenged to think deeply about issues that I encounter daily. Great job.

YES. This!

I started listening to these stories and was hooked right away. Ki & Katrina have done a really beautiful job of showing the complexity of being a teacher - funny, thoughtful, real! Thank you. This is so needed. (And go women podcasters!!)
