With so many options to choose from, people find it very difficult to choose at all.”Barry Schwartz: “Increased choice decreases satisfaction with matters as trivial as ice cream flavors and as significant as jobs. It [increased choice] requires increased time and effort and can lead  to anxiety, regret, excessively high expectations, and self-blame if the choices don’t work out.”Jam study by psychologists Sheena Iyengar and Mark LepperBarry Schwartz -  “More Isn’t Always Better” - hbr.org/2006/06/more-isnt-always-betterBarry Schwartz -  “The Paradox of Choice” - ted.com/talks/barry_schwartz_the_paradox_of_choice Today’s Guests: Jesse Lubinsky  (@jlubinsky) - Jesse Lubinsky is currently the Chief Learning Officer of Ready Learner One LLC and has nearly 20 years of public school experience as a teacher and administrator.

He has served as a classroom teacher, an instructional technology coach, an adjunct professor of education, and a Google in Education Trainer and Innovator. In this time he has continued to be an advocate for all students, especially those traditionally underserved by the U.S. educational institution.  He sees relationships as the core of education and strives to show all educators meaningful ways to incorporate technology into their curriculum to amplify student learning while not losing sight of the importance of seeing each student as a unique and important member of a classroom or school.Donnie Piercy (@mrpiercEy) - The 2021 Kentucky Teacher of the Year, Donnie teaches fifth grade Lexington, Kentucky. After graduating from Asbury College and earning his master’s from Auburn, he has been teaching since 2007.

One of the most important questions educators can ask.Engagement is the “Skeleton key” that can unlock academic successClassroom engagement has stumped educators for years and led to pervasive myths about what engagement looks like.Superhero teacher myth - We don’t have to have these captivating personalities. However, passion and excitement for a topic/learning can be conveyed.Remote Learning - A national anxiety about student engagement. “Students are not… logging in, completing assignments, sharing online, turning on cameras, etc.”How can we use this moment of disruption and chaos to try and apply some innovative thinking to recreate schools/classrooms to ignite a passion of learning and truly engage students in relevant learning?TPACK & SAMR - Frameworks for Technology Integration TPACK Model - (Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge) tpack.orgSAMR Model - (Substitution, Augmentation, Modification, Redefinition) - edutopia.org/article/powerful-model-understanding-good-tech-integration Active learning - Students learn best when they get to interact at all times in the lesson.
