Definitie Resource for Swift Teachers
Very inspiring, very relevant resource. I have already learned so much from this podcast about what works and what doesn't in the classroom. There's not a lot of extra fluff, so be ready with a notepad as ideas will keep popping into your head as you listen to this.
Swift Teacher is the type of podcast that makes podcasts the excellent resource they are.
I loved the episode with Bob Brown. I’ve worked with that man through Mobile Makers and he and I have tag teamed those summer teacher training courses and mentored the Mobile Makers teacher and student community for years. I’ve picked up so many good habits and continue to do so by emulating his approach and asking him about his strategies for teaching app development along the way. Great guest to share with your audience!!!
This podcast is wonderful. You do a fantastic job of allowing the conversation to breath. It doesn’t feel jumbled and there’s a good path towards a theme throughout. You also allow your guest to complete their thoughts and it’s nice to see your interest in asking them a good question and building upon their responses.
Great to meet you
I am so glad to have met you last week at Apple. I teach Video Game Design and Swift Coding at the HS level. You are so enthusiasic and it is very contagious. I will be listining to your podcast now on the regular. Have fun man.
