Back to School 2019 TV

EI TV - Educational Innovations BlogThe beginning of a new school year is a great time to consider fresh ways to motivate your students—and yourself!  It’s also a time to have some fun.  After all, in just a few days, the lesson plans and homework assignments will begin in earnest.  Our goal is to inspire you and make you laugh with these videos.

We think this will make you smile as you get ready for Day 1 of school this year.  This duo has done two other music videos dedicated to the first day of school.  You can see them here and here.

Chase Mielke is a high school teacher and instructional coach.  He was a 2014 Michigan Teacher of the Year nominee, and is the creator of an award-winning Positive Psychology program for at-risk 10th graders.  This powerful video is well worth a viewing, especially if you teach high school.


Join Lydia as she sets out to to explore her hypothesis: that fairies exist.  What an adorable little science ambassador!


We loved this inspiring TED Talk by veteran teacher, Rita Pierson.  It’s a rousing call to educators to believe in their students and actually connect with them on a real, human, personal level.
