    Flipboard EDU Podcast Episode 64: Victoria Tow and Flipboard Design

    In a world of Google Classroom, digital textbooks, and educational apps, it can be hard to keep up with the latest technology trends in education. One tool that is worth looking into is Flipboard: a social magazine platform that allows users to collect articles, images, and videos from across the web into customizable magazines. In fact, after using it myself for years, it inspired me to create this podcast. Flipboard can be used in the classroom and the school administrator's office in a variety of ways. Here are just a few ideas: Creating class magazines on current events or topics of study, collaboratively creating magazines about school life or memories, as a reading resource for schools, for monitoring student interests and curating content specific to them, and lastly flipping through content for professional development.
    Victoria Tow is one of the senior product designers at Flipboard where she designs a lot of the app experience for both Android and iOS devices. She joined me on the show to talk about how and why Flipboard fits the needs of everyone. From building recipe books to curating classroom magazines, Flipboard is the Swiss Army Knife of applications for mobile devices. Victoria shares with us that her job is “really to solve user problems and create solutions to those problems through design.” That’s a powerful statement to me because that’s what I believe teachers do as well.
    In this episode, we speak to Victoria about working at Flipboard and designing the world’s best app. We also discuss her involvement with coding clubs and supporting educators early in her career and how that translates into what she does at Flipboard. She also gives us insight into how Flipboard’s latest updates lets you curate topics of interest.

    Episode 63: Sam Kary and Thom Gibson with New EdTech Classroom

    Episode 63: Sam Kary and Thom Gibson with New EdTech Classroom

    I love talking with educators who are passionate about what they do for teachers and students. When I first saw a video from Sam Kary and Thom Gibson’s New EdTech Classroom, I was immediately hooked on how well they worked for educators, I started to follow them and collect their Instagram videos and TikToks, which share really cool websites for teachers and students. The New EdTech Classroom is my go-to resource for anything Google Education-related. Not only are Sam and Thom constantly updating their site, posting great resources and screencasts, they also have incredible videos that I collect in my Flipboard magazine.
    I had an exploratory interview with them about what got them started in EdTech, how they work together, and where their love of Google Education began. Our conversation went deep into how they work from home, the devices they use, and how their different organizational strategies work together. They provide great insight into how to engage students using technology.
    In episode 63 of the Flipboard EDU Podcast, Sam and Thom of the EdTech Classroom discuss how they use technology to enhance their teaching and to support others in their teaching.

    Episode 62: Robyn Hrivnatz and Microsoft

    During the pandemic, Microsoft Education was extremely responsive to the needs of educators. With inclusion and equity at the center of their education initiatives, Microsoft delivered game-changing products for teachers and students.
    Tools like Microsoft Teams for Education, Microsoft Sway, and Microsoft Powerpoint evolved to meet the needs of remote educators and learners at break-neck speeds thanks to the constant collaboration and responsiveness to feedback.
    Robyn Hrivnatz is the director of  Microsoft Education’s US EDU industry team. Along with the Microsoft team of engineers and Microsoft Innovative Educators, they were on the front lines and played a key role in shaping Microsoft Education. Robyn is an award-winning education professional with 21 years of experience serving as an educator, school leader, student advocate, and corporate partner. Robyn joined Microsoft in 2014 after dedicating 14 years in public K-12 education as a classroom teacher, instructional technologist, and district leader. She has built robust learning platforms and communities and led trainers and consultants as part of Microsoft's mission to transform education and support educators.
    In this episode, we speak with Robyn about Microsoft Education and its suite of tools that are free for teachers and students. We talk about how inclusion and equity are at the forefront of what Microsoft does to meet the needs of students. We also speak about social-emotional support that is built into platforms like Microsoft Teams, and how students can use the cross-platform tool Immersive Reader to improve literacy, fluency, and comprehension.

    Episode 60: Victoria Ransom and Prisma

    Episode 60: Victoria Ransom and Prisma

    Before remote learning was a thing, tailoring instruction to fit the needs of individual students was a daunting task for teachers. In a perfect world teachers would do this automatically because, in that world, every student has an understanding of what he or she doesn't know. However, in the real world teachers personalize the lesson plan for each student by incorporating technology into instruction. During COVID-19,  new opportunities for schools arose to do this while relieving much of that stress off of the teacher’s shoulders. Victoria Ransom, the CEO of Prisma, has developed a 21st century school that’s on a mission to change the way students learn.
    Contrary to the narrative that all students struggled with remote learning during COVID-19 Prisma’s success is proving the contrary. In this episode, we speak to Victoria about Prisma and its role in education during COVID-19. She details why a school is an excellent option for learners in the 21st century and why student collaboration is key to its approach.

    Episode 59: Simma Lieberman on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

    Episode 59: Simma Lieberman on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

    In the past year, many educators have been facing a tough time. Issues that have traditionally been left out of conversations continue to be an elephant in almost every educator’s room. I am talking about diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) among students as well as teachers on all levels; an issue often exacerbated by external pressures from parents and experts! Many believe the pressures of COVID-19 to be over but educators are feeling the different results on a daily basis.
    Fortunately, I have a friend who introduced me to someone who has worked tirelessly for DEI her whole life: Simma Lieberman. Simma is internationally known as "The Inclusionist," because she creates inclusive workplaces where employees love doing their best work and promoting equity among organizations.
    She is a DEI educator and author who has been working in the field for over 30 years. Her work has focused on promoting DEI in Fortune 500 companies, including Applied Materials, Intel, Diageo, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, and Boeing. An expert in reducing racial tension in organizations and communities, Simma founded her own consulting firm that works with organizations on racial equity initiatives.
    She is a member of the editorial board for two diversity think tanks and the former chairperson and co-founder of San Francisco's regional chapter of Out & Equal as well as being inducted into their hall of fame. Simma’s articles have appeared in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and Fast Company.
    In this episode of the Flipboard EDU Podcast, we speak to Simma about how her work is going after the George Floyd murder and how diversity can affect classroom dynamics. We discuss why it's important for educators to be aware of their own biases; what strategies educators can use to help students understand other cultures better; and how to foster understanding between different groups at schools such as LGBTQ+ students or other marginalized groups.
