This space will be used to highlight the incredible people we have met with along the way!
Richard Hattal joined us in episode 6 at the Golden Gate Bridge. He spent his career (22 years!) in the US Air Force, then went back to school to earn a teaching degree. Richard’s classroom is very connected with other classrooms, and allows students to chat with many professionals in a variety of fields. He talks about the Literacy Design Collaborative, which bridges all content areas to create engaging and real-life lessons that scaffold learning and support the writing process.
Jennifer Williams was our guest at the Library of Congress in Episode 7. Jennifer is a Literacy Specialist and Educational Program Developer for Calliope Global; she is also the co-founder of EdCamp Tampa Bay, the #Read4Fun Twitter chat, and the #FutureEdChat Twitter Chat. Jennifer speaks, writes, and consults on educational practices that develop global perspectives through creative uses of technology and digital literacy.
