When learning is addictive, kids want to come back for more. But how do we create lessons that keep kids engaged and excited? In this week’s episodes of the Ditch that Textbook podcast we get a one-two punch of practical advice, tips, and resources from two amazing educators.
Brian Romero Smith Sr. shares his advice and tips for creating an environment where kids want to learn for learning’s sake. Creating that addictive learning environment all comes down to a few things, Brian says, and he shares them with us.
We also hear from Sean Fahey who shares some best practices for making learning fresh and engaging with HyperDocs. Sean shares tips, tricks, and tools for getting started using HyperDocs or for taking your lessons to the next level.
