In this episode of The Wired Educator Podcast, I talk with Jodie Deinhammer, a celebrated Science teacher and Apple Distinguished Educator about teaching Science in a progressive school district, student choice as a menu, good reflection, 1:1 programs, drones, creativity, her mention in John Couch's book, Rewiring Education, Challenge Based Learning, student voice, assessments, and so much more! Whew! This episode has tremendous value for all educators and administrators. I know you are going to love hearing Jodie's story.
 
Jodie Deinhammer has been teaching science in Coppell ISD for over 20 years.  She was the Texas Region 10’s Secondary Teacher of the Year for 2015, and was the Texas Medical Association Texas Science Teacher of the Year in 2013.  She is also an Apple Distinguished Educator.
 
As an Apple Distinguished Educator, Mrs. Deinhammer works with teachers around the globe to help creatively integrate technology into the classroom. She encourages educators and administrators to create classrooms that allow students to investigate and address real world issues and create innovative solutions.
 
Mrs. Deinhammer believes that students should have a voice in their education and that schools need to drastically change to meet the needs of our changing world. We should challenge our students with authentic real world issues and give them a platform to make a difference in society.  We shouldn't focus on preparing our kids for what is next, but instead helping them make a contribution each and every day.

ZappyCode: Learn to Code with Nick Walter and his online coding course that teaches you how to make an iPhone app and so much more. Thank you ZappyCode for sponsoring this episode of the Wired Educator Podcast. I am a ZappyCode student, and I love and recommend the course for anyone interested in learning to code.

TouchCast: Create smart videos. TouchCast allows you to create and stream video that allows any file to be shared inside the video. The possibilities are exciting and endless. This is an app Liz recommends. 

Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead:this is Liz's favorite book.

Liz's next purchase may be a 360 camera to create virtual tools of her school. The Samsung Gear 360looks great for under $100, and the Insta 360 Onelooks to be the most impressive with every feature imaginable at $299. Not sure which one I will choose, but I love the idea. Here's a list of other 360 cameras..
