    How Can We Support Teachers' Mental Health? ft. Jabu Mind

    Published Under Former Name: K12ish, now The Edtech Incubator.

    Let's be real here: we know mental health is important.

    But it doesn't get talked about enough, especially when it comes to teachers.

    All the talk for returning to school is about supporting students' mental health, which is SO important. But the people who will be working most closely with students also need to be supported.

    And that's where Jabu Mind comes in – a mental health and meditation app designed specifically for teachers.

    Not only will Anna and her guests talk about what it takes to build an app and bring it to market in the education industry, they'll also dive into strategies you can use to cope with stress. Which is something we all need.

    The Creator Economy Meets Online Learning ft. Beau McCoy

    Published Under Former Name: K12ish, now The Edtech Incubator.

    Have you ever thought about what makes apps like Tik Tok and Youtube so addicting?

    Endless content. Topic variety. Audio and video. Binge-ability. Short lengths.

    Whatever it is: they are doing something right.

    And that's what led Beau McCoy to ask: can we build something like these for education?

    That's how SOLcademy came to be.

    In this week's episode, Anna and Beau talk tech startups, Tik Tok, and the creator economy while reimagining online learning.

    How This Teacher is Reinventing Social Media ft. Vriti Saraf

    How This Teacher is Reinventing Social Media ft. Vriti Saraf

    Published Under Former Name: K12ish, now The Edtech Incubator.

    You've heard of edchats on Twitter, and you've probably seen teacher-focused Facebook groups. But have you ever felt like they weren't enough? Like maybe there was a better way to build community among educators online...

    Well, that's the story of K20 Educators and its founder Vriti Saraf.

    You see: Vriti traveled the world connecting with teachers and what she noticed was that most worked in isolation of each other. That even with social media, they struggled to connect with their peers. 

    And thus the story of K20 starts.

    In this episode, Anna is sitting down with Vriti to learn what it takes to reimagine social media and professional development in a single platform.

    Denis Ocampo, Founder of OutboxEDU

    Published Under Former Name: K12ish, now The Edtech Incubator.

    We all know students learn when they are engaged. But getting them engaged isn’t easy.

    That’s where Denis Ocampo comes in. He’s the founder of OutboxEDU, a new edtech platform, that focuses on online learning through gamification.

    It takes those education buzzwords, like active, interdisciplinary, and self-paced, and actually puts them into practice.

    The possibilities don’t end there though. Denis wants to change how teachers market their instructional design, how homeschool programs and learning pods operate, and how we reach the most marginalized students in our classes. 

    It’s edtech that really is changing the future of learning.

    Check out this interview to learn more.
