In this episode of the Wired Educator Podcast, I interview an expert in all things STEM, Chris Woods.  Chris is the host of the Daily STEM Podcast and I love following him on Twitter. He is an amazing resource. He finds STEM everywhere!

Chris started the idea of dailySTEM to help educators and parents find STEM in the real world and share STEM with the kids they know.  Why?  Because STEM is all around us…in the backyard, at the store, in our homes, on TV and movies, in the news…everywhere!

Chris has been a High School Math teacher (Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Hands-on Geometry) since 1999 in Calumet, Michigan. He wrote his own Algebra 1 iBook (Part 1and Part 2) for students, complete with short video examples and practice questions for every lesson (all of the videos are available on YouTubeas well.)

Chris lives in a woods in a house he built himself with his wife and three children. 

Chris's work in education has be recognized as the 2013 Teacher of the Year, Calumet Public Schools, and he was a recipient of the 2017-2018 Michigan Teacher Leadership Advisory Council.

Chris and I talk of all things STEM and how it fits into any grade, in any content area. We talk maker spaces, making, science, math, technology, engineering, creating and, so much more.

This special episode of the Wired Educator Podcast is a Memorial Day Tribute to the men and women who lost their lives serving our country in the United States Armed Forces. 

This ten minute episode examines educators' roles in teaching future generations about honoring our veterans and shares a peek at some of the great ways schools are doing just that. 

This episode is a return to podcasting for me after some international travel and a battle with a nasty cold virus. 

I hope you take some time today to reflect on the true meaning of Memorial Day and also enjoy some time with your family. 

Thank you. 

 

Kelly

Jon Corippo describes himself as a “formerly disgruntled student.” He made it almost all the way through school at a 2.9 GPA. His final three semesters in Advertising changed everything, though: Advertising classes were project based. Jon’s grades shot to nearly 4.0. Also while at Fresno State, Jon served as a graduate assistant football coach, learning about leadership and teaching at the feet of Jim Sweeney. Jon graduated college with no intention of teaching.

After about 7 years in non-educational jobs, Jon’s amazing wife persuaded him to try his hand in education: he was hooked after just two days as a long-term sub on an emergency credential.

About 20 years later, Jon had served a decade at the K-8 level, opened a 1-1, PBL, Google-based high school, served in two county offices, including as an Assistant Superintendent and It Director. Jon has been recognized a County Teacher of the Year, a 20 to Watch Educator by the NSBA, and was a finalist in the EdTech Digest Awards. Jon also holds the Apple Distinguished Educator, Google Certified Innovator, and Microsoft Innovative Educator badges.

Jon is very proud of his work with CUE, where he currently serves as the Executive Director. His work with CUE includes creating the CUE Rock Star concept of Professional Development, with a focus on hands-on learning and getting teachers connected via social media. Cue Rock Star Camps now include Admin, TOSA, Teacher and Specialized Editions for core areas. Jon has lead the development of the very successful CUE Launch program, and the well received CUE BOLD Symposium. Under Jon’s leadership, CUE professional learning has trained over 30,000 educators in only two years.

 
Jon lives in Coarsegold, California, near Yosemite, with his wife (a very successful educator), three children and a random number of free-range chickens.
 
Eduprotocols - Book 2 will be adding a dozen new Eduprotocols to the existing sixteen Eduprotocols in original book. We are also beginning an Eduprotocols Podcast that will feature an educators who are actively using an Eduprotocol in their classroom.

In this episode of the Wired Educator Podcast, I interview Apple Distinguished Educator, Ben Mountz about his work using apple's Everyone Can Create Curriculum, his journey of relocating from Pennsylvania to Hawaii, what it means to be an Apple Distinguished Educator and more! I know you will enjoy this interview with Ben. He is one of the most creative educators I've ever met. His kindness and care for others has no limitations.

Ben is a Physics, Robotics, and Digital Storytelling instructor at Hanalani Schools in Mililani, HI.After teaching for 13 years in southeastern Pennsylvania, in 2016 he and his wife Jess realized their dream of relocating to Hawaii and continuing their teaching careers there. The rich environment allows Ben to pursue his love of creating images and media, as well as exploring the natural wonders of Hawaii through hiking, swimming, and surfing.

As an Apple Distinguished Educator, his most recent passion has been in using the various facets of Apple’s Everyone Can Create curriculum in his Digital Storytelling courses to help students find their creative voice.

Mentioned in this episode:

Everyone Can Create Curriculum:A collection of project guides that that bring creative expression to every subject. Ben and I talk about this at length. What a fantastic resource! It is awesome and free.

The Apple Distinguished Educator Program: Apple created the Apple Distinguished Educators (ADE) program to recognize K–12 and higher-education pioneers who are using Apple technology to transform teaching and learning. These are the educators who are looking to change the world. They are active leaders from around the world helping other educators rethink what’s possible with iPad and Mac to make learning deeply personal for every student.

• The most influential books Ben chose to share are the Bible and Resonate by Nancy Durante. If you are a creator, a speaker, and educator, or really anyone trying to "create" better, you need to read and apply Resonate.

• Ben's favorite apps are Keynoteand Procreate. Both are amazing tools for creation, design, art, and more.

James will challenge your thinking about the importance of video games in school and offer you amazing resources and direction to help you start up your school district's esports team. I love this interview with James, and I know you will too. He is brilliant!
