Big Ideas in Education

BIG IDEAS IN EDUCATION is one of two education podcasts I host on the Academica Media Network. It is a weekly program in which a panel of education experts (including Sarah Boulos Fye of Somerset Academy Schools, Michael Hernandez of Academica Corporation, and other guest hosts) discuss new developments in education and chronicle stories of inspiration and innovation in schools around the country. You can listen to Big Ideas (and subscribe!) on Apple Podcasts, Spreaker, Google Play, Spotify, Stitcher, and SoundCloud. Check out new episodes below!
