Blair Mishleau - Windows and Mirrors in Our Classroom

Hello, and welcome to Episode 93 of the Planning Period Podcast, your #EdBreakroom. I’m your host, Brad Shreffler.

This week on the show I am joined by Blair Mishleau, an EdTech Consultant with a focus on equity and access. I heard Blair speak about Culturally Responsive Teaching at ISTE, and I sent him a message right away to ask him to be on the show.

Blair and I talk about culturally responsive teaching and EdTech, the possible need for more selectivity in teacher training programs, issues with compensation, and how those might be connected, the need for more conversations about equity and oppression in our classrooms, and how we can start that dialogue with our students, and why we need to let students struggle through something new sometimes.

So, sit back and enjoy Episode 93 of the Planning Period Podcast, my interview with Blair Mishleau.
