A Talk with Vicki Davis: Lower Test Anxiety and Improve Retention
Last week I was honored (and nervous) to speak with mega-education blogger Vicki Davis on her Every Classroom Matters Podcast. I'd met with Vicki during an Edutopia event a couple years ago when she introduced a bunch of bloggers to a social application we'd never heard of called Voxer. Anyway, Vicki and I talked about how to lower testing anxiety by incorporating social-emotional learning strategies. It's was a brief 10 minute podcast, but we covered a lot. Check it out!
