Podcast On Your Plan episode 54 with Anne Beck

You’re going to love Anne Beck! In this episode, we debrief after a day of working with preservice teachers at the University of Oklahoma College of Education. After some insight about PD and reflecting on the responses from the preservice teachers, we discuss favorite PD moments at EdCamp and iPadpalooza. Of course, this leads us down a discussion about the future teachers, how to implement technology in a meaningful way, tenure probs, realizations from flipping classrooms, TEACHING TO THE TEST (!), how to manage emails, and 90’s music.

Podcast On Your Plan ep45 with Ken Stamatis

Ken Stamatis (twitter mini@KenStamatis) teaches at Harding University in Arkansas and has a growing fan club in Oklahoma. I was fortunate enough to meet him after one of his Literacy Lab workshops in Moore and talk state standards, integrated reading and writing, and practical instructional strategies. This was an excellent and timely conversation to have considering our state’s current implementation of new ELA standards! I can’t thank Ken enough for his time and insight on the process!

Podcast On Your Plan ep 44 with Dr. Gregg Garn

Dr Dean Gregg GarnDr. Gregg Garn is the Dean of the Jeannine Rainbolt College of Education at the University of Oklahoma. Podcasting with Dr. Garn was a big deal for me. I look up to him and consider him an ideal education leader. I hope you enjoy this episode and reflect on your strengths as an education leader as well.

Dr. Garn can be found on Twitter at twitter mini@DeanGarn.

Also in this episode, I relay some bad news about a lost interview from the 2016 iPadpalooza conference. It happened! I have visual proof (see below), just not audio. Anyways, it crushes me but you should still check out the infamous Justin Bell at twitter mini@jabellpepper and his website jabellpepper.weebly.com unless you hate awesome things. Then you’ll want to avoid Justin at all cost.
