Instant Relevance Podcast

Are you looking for more authentic connections with your students? Listen up

The Instant Relevance Podcast has a lofty goal: to make learning relevant for all students. It’s co-hosted by Denis Sheeran, a speaker who delivers keynotes, workshops, and small-group professional development courses to teachers and administrators; and eSchool News’ columnist Raymond Steinmetz, a K-8 math instructional coach, TeachPlus Rhode Island Policy Fellow, and Highlander Institute FuseRI Classroom Coach.

Available on 11 different formats, the podcast topics range from a discussion on how LeBron James opening a school can be used as a #MakeItReal moment to revolutionary PD practices to the latest research from The New Teacher Project and why it matters. One of the newest episodes explores how teacher Rachelle Dene Poth converted her classroom from teacher- to student-centered.

If you’re looking for ideas to connect with your students and make your lessons more meaningful, check out this podcast.
