Changing Cities, Changing Countries, and Changing Ourselves

Imagine uprooting yourself from everything that is important to you. Taking yourself thousands of miles away from home and dropping yourself in a place that you feel is better for your future than where you were before. It doesn’t sound so daunting with all the technology today, but imagine being across oceans from those who are most important to you. 

That is the reality of the American Dream, and it is a topic that gets glorified across the world.

In schools, these unique children come together and share a learning environment. 

As teachers, we must find ways to embrace the uniqueness of the students we teach, while creating learning opportunities based on a singular curriculum.

Artificial Intelligence Will Impact Your Children’s Future Self-Sufficiency

There’s no denying that during elementary school, children learn fundamental skills including writing, math, critical thinking, and problem-solving. The introduction of artificial intelligence may hinder their ability to think for themselves and stifle their creativity. 

So, what is the solution? Until a child is literate, can read and comprehend what they are reading, write clearly and convincingly, and compute through basic algebra using only their own brainpower, do not introduce artificial intelligence into the elementary classroom.

Seeing Our Students: Understanding How Lenses Shape Our Teaching

by Lacey Robinson / Aug 05, 2023 / 0 comments

What I couldn’t articulate in my early career track as a teacher was that whenever I observed environments where students of color were present, I noticed the ways that implicit bias may have been at play in their learning and school environments. For instance, bias is obvious to me in school hallways in which children are walking single file, with bubbles in their mouths, to prevent them from talking to each other. This ill-advised classroom management strategy asks kids to close their lips and puff their cheeks, as if they are holding a bubble.

Time Travel at the Game Table

One of my favorite bands from my youth was The Moody Blues (still is). They were the champions of “concept albums” - collections of songs, poetry, and instrumental pieces that told a story or addressed an idea through music. The relevant quote that comes to mind is taken from their album “In Search of the Lost Chord” from 1968.

“Thinking is the best way to travel.”
