School Psyched Podcast is hosted by three school psychologists who invite experts to share their insights on a range of topics, including evidence-based social and emotional learning, gifted students, legal considerations, and more controversial issues, such as racial representation in special education. The episodes are live video chats hosted on YouTube Live. The video chats will occur on the first and third Sundays of the month starting in September 2017. The hosts will take questions and comments via YouTube Live, Facebook, and Twitter (#psychedpodcast).
When I first started teaching 29 years ago, being safe and secure meant having fire drills and locking windows and doors at the end of the day. How times have changed! Today, digital privacy and security have been added to the physical safety of schools. Students are becoming increasingly savvy with technology, but they may not always realize how public their online information is. Because of this, educators must learn how to teach their students online security and safety.
In 1951, a football game inspired what would become a landmark study in psychology. Dartmouth opposed Princeton in a brutal end-of-season match that yielded a broken nose, a broken leg, and a flurry of penalties. The game's lack of sportsmanship became the topic of much public debate, with each side blaming the other for the lack of civility on the field.
