On this episode, Kelly interviews Kristin Ziemke, the author of the new book Amplify. Kristen and Kelly talk about literacy, technology in education, and a whole range of topics on how to make a greater impact as a teacher. This is a great interview, and one that was requested by many listeners.

Kristin's mantra came to her literally from a fortune cookie that read: "The best teacher is also a student." She has taught in both urban and suburban school districts including primary grades in Chicago. She engages students in authentic learning experience where reading, thinking and collaboration and inquiry are the very heart of the curriculum. Kristin pairs her best practice instruction with digital tools to transform learning in the classroom and beyond.

Kristin is an Apple Distinguished Educator, National Board Certified Teacher, and Chicago's 2013 Tech Innovator of the Year.
