What if we treated teachers the way we treated professional athletes?
A clip by Comedy Central’s Key and Peele envisions such a world, spoofing ESPN’s SportsCenter and becoming the highlight of the #edchat world this week. (Wonder what Boyd Maxwell and Perry Schmidt have to say about back-to-school season?)
Also worth checking out this week? Great piece by George Couros on approaching the basics in education and making room for innovation. Plus Lauralee Moss’ guest post on strategies for educators working from home.
