  • The MindShift podcast explores the innovations in education that are shaping how kids learn. Hosts Ki Sung and Katrina Schwartz introduce listeners to educators, researchers, parents and students who are developing effective ways to improve how kids learn. We cover topics like how fed-up administrators are developing surprising tactics to deal with classroom disruptions; how listening to podcasts are helping kids develop reading skills; the consequences of overparenting; and why interdisciplinary learning can engage students on all ends of the traditional achievement spectrum. Listen on Google Play, Apple Podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts. This podcast is part of the MindShift education site, a division of KQED News. KQED is an NPR/PBS member station based in San Francisco. You can also visit the MindShift website for episodes and supplemental blog posts or tweet us @MindShiftKQED or visit us at MindShift.KQED.org.

    Teacher Features is the podcast that explores what Hollywood gets right and wrong about education. In each episode we watch a movie that features a teacher. We then discuss what the teacher does well, what they do poorly, and what they could do to improve their teaching. Teacher Features is hosted by Kathryn Oberg and Jake Scott, two elementary school teachers in Minnesota.

    Writing for a unanimous Supreme Court in the 1954 Brown v. Board of Education opinion, Chief Justice Earl Warren claimed that segregation “generates a feeling of inferiority” among black students “that may affect their hearts and minds in a way unlikely ever to be undone.” As a white teacher in 100% non-white New York City schools, I think about these words often. How does segregation affect students’ hearts and minds? Recently, I started going into high schools across the city and asking them. Their testimony – raw, honest, revealing – forms the basis of the first season and adds missing perspectives to the growing conversation about school segregation.

  • The Alien Adventures of Finn Caspian is a serialized science-fiction story for kids (start with Episode 1!), told in 15-20 minute episodes for parents to put on when driving around town, or to marathon on road trips, or to bond over before bed. When pressed, we describe it as a "mystery gang" story, sort of like Scooby-Doo in space. The story centers on Finn Caspian, an 8-year-old boy aboard The Famous Marlowe 280 Interplanetary Exploratory Space Station. He and his friends Abigail, Elias and Vale are Explorers Troop 301, taking off from the Marlowe to explore uncharted planets, help the occasional alien, and solve a mystery that threatens to destroy the Marlowe. The story is written and performed by Jonathan Messinger, author of Hiding Out, former web editor of Time Out Chicago Kids, and father of two boys. We only mention that because his son Griffin, 6, serves as editor of the story, appearing in episodes to critique, make predictions and express skepticism that his father knows what he's talking about, which also happens to be the way the rest of their relationship works.
