Ryan Tibbens - The Need For Flexibility

Hello, and welcome to Episode 157 of the Planning Period Podcast, part of the OnPodcastMedia Network. I’m your host, Brad Shreffler.

This week on the show I am joined by Ryan Tibbens. Ryan is a high school English teacher out of Northern Virginia, and the host of the Classcast Podcast, a self-described podcast about education for everyone, not just educators. He is also part of the Twitter Podcast Learning Network I’m in, where I met him and asked him to be on the show.

Ryan and I talk about his podcast and what it is, what learning loss really is (or isn’t), how a lack of flexibility in the system is the biggest problem in education, the importance of expanding your learning beyond your subject and education, and how sometimes a tough teacher can be the best teacher.

So, sit back and enjoy Episode 157 of the Planning Period Podcast, my interview with Ryan Tibbens.
