Welcome to episode 001 of the Bits and Bytes of Education podcast! I'm excited to begin this bi-weekly show to share my conversations with educators doing amazing things in their spaces.
The Edtech Minute
Exciting is not the same thing as engaging.
Jordan McGaughey served the Fox C-6 School District for 10 years as a high school social studies teacher and on July 1, 2018 he will assume the role of K-12 Social Studies Coordinator for the Rockwood School District. In our conversation, Jordan discusses his journey to engage students with technology, how he harnesses the power of social media to reach students where they are, and what exactly it means to win a Milken award.
