Episode #59: How to Navigate Online Education (especially during COVID-19) with Jake Miller

All of a sudden, everyone is learning from HOME! 

COVID-19 recently launched the entire school system into the world of e-learning and online education. But, with such a major shift in your everyday learning, you may be feeling less engaged, less motivated, and less excited about subjects. You’re not alone! 

In this episode, we talk about online education and learning with Jake Miller, authorized Google Apps for Education Trainer and the current Technology Integration Specialist for Brady Middle School in the Orange City School District. We’ll cover how to motivate your brain, organize your e-learning schedule or tech-based Passion Project, and challenge yourself and grow in this ever-changing time.

Jake also hosts the Educational Duct Tape podcast, linked below!

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN ABOUT IN THIS EPISODE:

  • Tips for students and educators to help you engage with your online classes
  • How to start your tech-based Passion Project (even if you don’t know a single thing about tech!)
  • All the resources you need to start learning to code, podcast, or video edit

NOTABLE QUOTES:

If the teacher is struggling, then as a student, your learning and your success have priority… Go out and do the things that will help you succeed in that class and reach those goals.
Sometimes the things that we try out, sometimes we were wrong about them and that's how we find out what we're truly into.
If we give it the chance, `{`technology`}` can really help us personalize learning for our students and make every student achieve something that feels really special to them.
Go with it, because you will grow from it.
