MayBee25 ,

Thank you.

I teared up listening to this podcast. I was left responsible for teaching/being accountable to myself at 9. Roper Mt Science Center was one of the most magical places on earth to me. Learning was such a burden but there it was always fun. I’m so excited for all the ideas behind this podcast and for what changes it will make in the world.

Let’s Change Things

I’ve been a fan since Star Wars in the Classroom and now they’re part of BrambleJam. 👍🏻 This weird time is such an opportunity for educational change. It NEEDS change. How can we create new experiences in a rigid test and data driven environment? Trust the process. I would love to hear a little more immediately actionable steps/calls to action and less “theory” but it’s episode one. Time and room to grow. 🤓
