Episode 020 Talking Teacher Tool Making with @MrDeltaMath, Zach Korzyk

Show Notes

This week Matthew Moore talks with education tool creator Zach Korzyk This podcast focuses on Zach Korzyk, the creator of an amazing free learning tool called DeltaMath, but the focus is NOT math but the story and philosophy of an educator trying to meet the needs of his students. DeltaMath is a great tool but what I found most engaging is the educational philosophies of the educator that have shaped this tool.  We talk about what it takes to make a top shelf education tool and provided to students and teachers for free.  We talk about how his students have helped shape a tool that is actively being used by 25000 student right now.  Finally, we talk about the impact that one teacher in New York can have from his classroom and his apartment on so many teachers and student.  This is a great tool for flipped classrooms, but is an even more powerful story of making a better tool because it is good for students.  Enjoy the show and we welcome feedback via comments, tweets to hosts and/or the AskTheFLN Twitter account or as a comment via iTunes.

Episode 019 – Talking Definition of Flipped With Aaron Sams

Show Notes

This week Matthew Moore talks with Aaron Sams from the FlipTech East Coast 2018 conference.

Aaron is the well known co-author of books covering flipped learning and its impact on nearly every traditional education discipline, but these days he is focused on training educators at the university level.  In June of 2018 Aaron was the keynote speaker at FlipTech East Coast 2018 where he discussed and dissected some of the many definitions of flipped learning. I had the opportunity to talk with Aaron about his keynote, the “best” definition of flipped learning, and the priority of good practice over perfect definitions. Listen in on the thoughts of an educator who benefits from longest perspective in flipped learning.

The conference was held on June 29 and 30 at Collingswood High School in New Jersey. We are in the planning stages for future FlipTech conferences, feel free to contact us if you would like to participate in bringing a FlipTech conference to your city or country.
