Leading, Learning, and Technology with Scott Martin
In this episode, we get the privilege of sitting down with Scott Martin. Scott has had a direct influence on Andrew. As Andrew's former high school teacher and the person who helped him realize his talents as a student, Scott shares just how he created that culture in his classroom.
Scott also shares how that culture-building in the classroom for his students had a direct impact on how he led as a building administrator. It's no secret that Scott believed in the people he served and takes time in this episode to highlight how other leaders can focus on relationships and see a direct correlation to student and staff engagement.
We also unpack how all of these experiences have shaped Scott's current vision for creating a robust platform that serves both students and teachers as they integrate and leverage technology as a tool for engagement and learning. His platform, THiNKtech is influencing many districts, teachers, and students across the K-12 educational setting in just how we think about the ways we implement technology and the possibilities for deep learning.
