I’ve been looking forward to releasing this episode all Summer. Today’s episode features the first part of an interview with someone who I find truly inspirational. When I interviewed Chris Jacobs back in lockdown, our discussion was absolutely fascinating, and I wanted to release it at a time when we could all use a bit of inspiration. As we return to school, whether that is in person, or remotely, it is worthwhile listening to his teacher’s story and finding out a little more about the work he and his colleagues do to create an innovative environment in his school.
Chris has been an educator for as long as I have. He is currently the lead teacher in an interdisciplinary high school experience know as the Innovations Lab, or I-Lab for short. It is, in my opinion, a groundbreaking and humane way to approach learning in a high school setting. I encourage you to find out more about the iLab, details will be at the end of the podcast. For now, I’ll let Chris tell you more as we begin this interview recorded a few weeks into lockdown, at the end of April.
If you want to know more about the ilab, or learn more about Chris’ work, you can follow him on Twitter @ChrisJacobsGRHS. The Ilab also has its own twitter account. They do daily updates of all the goings on @GRHSiLab.
