Recently I had so much fun recording an extended interview with Jared O’ Leary at #CSK8 Podcast. I have to admit this is probably my favorite podcast that I have done due to it being a longer format so that we can dive deeper into concepts and ideas. Here’s the description:
In this interview with Mike Kaechele, we discuss dismantling prejudices through projects, how to situate project-based learning within the community and for local impact, what can be learned when a project fails, the difference between projects and recipes, why social and emotional learning (SEL) is important, lessons learned teaching a variety of subject areas, differences between equity and equality in education, and so much more.
I have recorded quite a few podcasts over the years so here’s a complete list if you would like to listen to more:
- The Powerful Overlap of SEL and PBL with John Spencer
- PBL and SEL with Rola Tibshirani at The Missing Link

If you are interested in how your school can use a PBL framework to teach SEL skills. I would love to have a conversation on how I can help. I am scheduling PBL & SEL workshops for this summer right now. Check out my workshop page or drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would love to chat and co-plan meaningful PD for the educators at your school.
