Teachingland KEYNOTE

In this dynamic and engaging keynote, Amanda or Mary Ellen will share the rules of Teachingland, the R.E.M.E.D.Y. model, classroom management strategies, and all other components of classroom survival. Leveraging Design Thinking, Problem Based Learning, and a multitude of technologically driven integration strategies, Teachingland spans all grades and content areas. Teachers will leave with a better grasp of designing lessons and engaging their warm-bodied learners. This keynote can be tailored to address a specific chapter or multiple concepts within the book!

Teachingland Workshops


As new and seasoned teachers return to start another year, classroom preparations are in place to survive another year! In this fun, hands-on session, teachers will put Teachingland rules like ‘Bare Hands’ and ‘Zombie Zips’ into practice through team building and design thinking challenges to reshape the way they design activities in their classroom, and check the pulse of their students.  Our R.E.M.E.D.Y. model helps teachers reimagine and rectify the role of student voice and personalized learning. Amanda and Mary Ellen can customize this workshop to meet the needs of your school or district.

"This is a fun, fast-paced read that is all about using teamwork to improve the educational experience. Whether you're an educator in the traditional classroom or an instructor in corporate training, you and your students will benefit from the unconventional strategies and tactics this book offers to navigate the darkness of antiquated educational practices and emerge into the light of an improved pedagogy.  " -- Mat Chacon, CEO, Doghead Simulations

"It’s human nature to get worn down by situations, and Education can be no different. But this dead-ly book from Amanda and Mary Ellen has the perfect anti-dote - the equally human response of playfulness, humour and creativity. As society moves to a fully digital and automated era where the most human intelligence or literacies are becoming more and more valuable, this is not only a smart move, but an absolutely key one if we are to truly survive. I’m confident that this book takes us even beyond that to also give an ability to thrive - first by understanding the recent past, and then via its incredible collection of practical tips and resources. I fully endorse Teachingland for the zombie-fied among us as well as the still warm and red-blooded teachers who are out there every day making a difference."

“A totally unique approach to professional development that stands out from every other teaching book I’ve read. Essential reading for educators striving to ensure their learning environment doesn’t end up resembling a zombie movie!”
