😎I know that some of you are on Spring Break this week and many of us are going on Spring Break next week so I am keeping this newsletter light and including a blog post and some podcasts I think you might enjoy. 😉

5+ Creatively Productive Tips,
Tools, and Things to Love 

💻An Ed Tech Podcast: Monica Burns is prolific and amazing and a respected voice in the edusphere so it should be no surprise that she has launched her own podcast. The title of the podcast is Easy EdTech and each one is 15-18 minutes which is a perfect byte size chunk. The first 4 podcasts touch on Creative Teacher Projects for Any Classroom, How to Get Started with Back Channels, How to Use Explainer Videos in Your Classroom, and Virtual Reality Classroom Discussion Prompts
👥For Parenting and Health and Wellness: Our student support counseling team is amazing. They put together an awesome speaker series devoted to a wide range of topics. Recently, I started turning the archived video version of these talks into podcasts using iMovie and then Anchor. My favorites by far are:
  • Deciphering Girls' Friendships with Barb Steinberg (and much of this can be applied for boys too)
  • Everyday Mindfulness for a Peaceful (stress-less) Presence with Stacy Thrash
  • Anxiety: When Does it Become a Problem & How to Support with Austin Anxiety and OCD Specialists
  • Parenting a Perfectionist Child: How to Know When they Are Pushing Themselves Too Far with Edward Dreslinski
The entire podcast series can be found here on iTunes.
📲A Podcast with the Pulse of Education: If you are looking for a new podcast that has the pulse of education, you have to check out the OnEducation podcast. Mike and Glen are amazing. They have 50+ episodes and 63 5⭐️ ratings. And shameless plug... they interviewed yours truly on a variety of #creativelyproductive tips, tools, and practices on last week's episode. The complete podcast is here. I believe the book interview comes in at about 38 minutes.  
🎤A Tool That is Pretty Cool for Podcasting: If you are interested in starting your own podcast, I highly recommend Anchor. It has an app and a website. I started using it this semester for the parent speaker series we launched (mentioned above) and it has been so easy to use and navigate!
📝A Recap of SXSWEDU: Cheating a little here on the podcast theme for this newsletter BUT hear me out. I had a moment to gather my thoughts on SXSWEDU and share my favorite sessions and ideas. And the best part... MANY of the Sessions and keynotes have a podcast version so I couldn't help but share!
