Every week, Steve Hargadon and I sit down (virtually) to talk about the latest ed-tech news. I always find our conversation to be one of the most thought-provoking exchanges I have all week. Luckily for me then, we actually chatted several times this week, recording a podcast on Monday, participating in a webinar together on Thursday, and recording another podcast episode yesterday.
We spend a lot of time in this one talking about education startups -- the Ed Startup 101 class I'm taking, the startups that I "love," whether or not Hack Education itself is a startup, and how I plan to make this venture a financially sustainable one.
We also talk about the national party conventions and their rhetoric about education, contrasting that with Steve's plans for a "Hack Your Education" tour which he kicks off this week.
