As quoted by the host Ken Ehrmann, "effective classroom transition keep teachers hydrated". When Matt and Ken sat down to tackle this conversation, it was supposed to be a quick brainstorm of what transitions look like and how it can best support effective teaching. They weren't expecting it to go for 45 minutes, but the content is high-quality. They discuss key strategies, ways to incorporate technology, and how to handle hybrid or fully-virtual classes. Ken's main message is to put more on the students to make it less stressful for teachers.
