195 – The One with One Board Family – The Family Gamers Podcast
First, we learn a little bit about the Ferrari 195 S.
This week we welcome back Ric White from the One Board Family.
What We’ve Been Playing
Rallyman GT on Board Game Arena
Smash Up from AEG
Seasons of Rice from Button Shy
Cover Your Kingdom from Grandpa Beck’s Games
Codenames Duet from Czech Games
Bees: The Secret Kingdom from Van Ryder Games and Awaken Realms Lite
Tang Garden from Thundergryph Games (and will be distributed by Lucky Duck Games)
With the last two games, we wonder if the board gaming community is ready for games that are to be enjoyed “both as a game and a piece of art.”
Our Conversation with Ric
We asked Ric: What’s it like being a teacher during pandemic/lockdown?
Ric and his fellow teachers got a little bit of warning during their spring vacation. We talk about how kids are in very different places right now (attention, technical difficulties, learning challenges, etc.)
Even online schooling techniques that existed before this lockdown have a limited application for the situation we’re in now.
Teachers are being stretched in many ways – some good, but all of them very challenging.
Don’t think next year is going to look like “a normal school year”. At the highschool level, AP classes, placement exams, etc all are looking very different. Elementary teachers will be “like producing a TV show” to keep kids’ attention.
