10 Min with Barb and Ron
10 Minutes with Barb & Ron is dedicated to parents, educators, college students, administrators, and everyone who loves a great conversation. All of our conversations are 10 minutes, light, and fun. We wrestle with everyday occurrences, problems, and fun items. What makes us different is how we infuse Universal Design for Learning (UDL) into our conversations. Our channel's content is always different, right to the point, and, we hope, you walk away smiling or laughing.
