In this 60th episode of The Wired Educator Podcast, Kelly interviews Apple Distinguished Educator, Clay Reisler. You can follow Clay on Twitter at @RecessDuty.
Clay Reisler has been focused on instructional design and digital workflow in his classroom since 2008. With the opportunity to have a mobile digital device in the hands of every student since 2009, Clay has integrated a variety of educational atmospheres that engages and empowers students to guide their own learning. With over 1,400 published videos and 1,100 blog posts of students and teachers integrating technology tools in an educational setting, Clay provides an inside view of technology being implemented at the right time for the right reason.
Clay’s current position as an Instructional Design and Digital Workflow Support Teacher for grades 6-12 allows him to integrate multiple technology tools, mainly iPads, and strategies with classroom teachers across all subject areas so that students can critically think, create, communicate, and collaborate.
Mentioned in this podcast:
Clay and I cover MUCH in this podcast: the position of a technology coach and how it can really work, iPad as a testing device, iPad vs. Chromebook, Canvas, Flex Mod Scheduling, Workflow solutions, Flipboard, DoInk for iPad, Explain Everything, SeeSaw, Canvas, and the 4 C's, and of course... so much more! This was a great conversation! Looking forward to having Clay back again soon.
One of Clay's favorite books is How Starbucks Saved My Life by Michael Gates Gill
