This week’s episode is titled: How EdTech Connects to Climate Change Education With Dr. Jennifer Williams. I am so excited to have Jen join today to unpack this idea of climate change education and explain the role education technology plays. As you’ll hear in the episode, there are lots of connections to cross-curricular activities, social-emotional learning, media literacy, and more. Jen and I first connected on Twitter, have spent lots of time chatting about EdTech at conferences, and I can’t wait for you to learn about her work!
