Sarah Thomas – Edumatch Founder

Hello, and welcome to Episode 71 of the Planning Period Podcast, your #EdBreakroom. I’m your host, Brad Shreffler.

This week on the show I am joined by Dr. Sarah Thomas, technology coordinator, public speaker, and founder of EduMatch. I am connected with Sarah on twitter and Voxer, and have heard her on a couple other podcasts, and I knew she would be a great guest on the show.

Sarah and I talk about EduMatch and how it started, about talking to people, inequity in education, not just of technology but access to learning, the importance of including student voice not only in assignments but in decision making, the Future Ready through the Alliance for Excellent Education, the importance of being open minded and trying new things, and why we should learn from our past.

So, sit back and enjoy Episode 71 of the Planning Period Podcast, my interview with Dr. Sarah Thomas.

Sarah, thank you so much for being on the show. It was a great conversation and true to form, you’ve already connected me with more future guests.
