For today's episode I talk with music teacher Jeff Bradbury, who is also the mastermind behind teachercast.net.  You can connect with Jeff there or at jeffreybradbury.com.  If you are also interested in podcasting or webcast development, I highly recommend contacting Jeff.  He's very helpful and a great guy.  

As I mentioned at the conclusion of this episode, I'm involved in a new monthly meetup happening in the Fort Wayne area for other passionate and innovative educators.  The first meeting is happening October 15.  If you're interested in joining us, please click here.  

I'm also excited to be attending the upcoming Indiana Connected Educators Conference on October 16th and 17th.  You can find out more information here.

In this episode, I have the privilege of speaking with Steve Hope and Duke Lines, Principal and Associate Principal at Penn High School in Mishawaka, Indiana.  We talk about Steve's ability to drive important change at Penn as well as Duke's quick ascension through the ranks.  We discuss the goals for PHS this year as they move to a 1:1 environment with Chromebooks.  Both administrators discuss what inspired them to "make the jump" and provide advice for newer leaders.  In order to connect with these dynamic leaders, you can find Steve @sthope and Duke @ADukeLines on Twitter.

Be sure to check out the new show next Tuesday with music teacher/conductor/podcaster/web developer extraordinaire Jeff Bradbury.  Jeff is the mastermind behind teachercast.net and can also be found at jeffreybradbury.com.  He's on Twitter @teachercast and @jeffbradbury.

In this episode, I ask Eric about what drove him to become an administrator, what he feels are the top qualities of a strong principal, and the success of New Milford High School.  He discusses how digital leadership is not an add-on and when addressing the industrial model for schools and explains his quest to break through “an efficient system for a world that no longer exists.”  Finally, he talks about his new position with the International Center for Leadership in Education, or ICLE, the host of the annual Model Schools Conference.  You can connect with Eric at ericsheninger.com or on his current Twitter profile @NMHS_Principal.  

Tune in next week for my talk with Spanish teacher Matt Miller, host of the excellent resource ditchthattextbook.com.  Matt is @jmattmiller on Twitter.
