TTT Episode 60: Don't Design Lessons Around Fads and Get a Mentor

This week Pete (@mr_van_w) examines the tempting lure of building lessons around the current fad in student culture. This happens to be Fortnite at the moment, it was Pokemon a couple of years ago and it will be something else next time you teach the topic. John (@jfcatto) highlights the need for teachers old and new to have a mentor to support them and their teaching. #findyourmarigold Pete: Teachers and Parents Share Stories From Inside the 'Fortnite' Phenomenon - Patrick Klepak https://waypoint.vice.com/en_us/article/59j9pk/teachers-and-parents-share-stories-from-inside-the-fortnite-phenomenon Forego Fortnite - Doug Robertson https://hestheweirdteacher.blogspot.com.au/2018/05/forego-fortnite.html John: Every Teacher Needs a Mentor - Heather Walport-Gawron https://www.edutopia.org/article/every-teacher-needs-mentor

Great discussions about teaching
Excellent discussion by two connected educators about what they're reading/learning about. A fine addition to anyone's PLN. Entertaining as well.
