Amanda Macias - Team Uniquorn

Hello, and welcome to Episode 141 of the Planning Period Podcast, part of the OnPodcastMedia Network. I’m your host, Brad Shreffler.

This week on the show I am joined by Amanda Macias. Amanda is and instructional coach out of southern California, and she is also part of the InsideParticipate Twitch channel, and a regular participant on my weekly live show, unScriptEd. We’ve become friends and chat on Twitter regularly, so I knew she’d be a great guest for the show.

Amanda and I talk about gamification and game-based learning, how we can bring ideas back into our schools as coaches, how education is like Pompeii, what the long-term effects of our current situation will be, the need for teachers to practice better self-care. It also took us four attempts to record this episode as the software kept crashing for us. But, I think I did a great job of hiding it in the edits…

So, sit back and enjoy Episode 141 of the Planning Period Podcast, my interview with Amanda Macias.
