NEW SHOW! +Louis Zulli Jr  shares how he transitioned from traditional teaching to project based learning.
Shifting to project learning meant getting off of the stage, giving up control and allowing my students room to fail. Follow: @coolcatteacher @bamradionetwork #edtechchat #edchat #edtech

Story
Tagline
@coolcatteacher Helping teachers find the classrooms and lives they love.
Introduction
Hi, I'm Vicki (Adams) Davis, Teacher, author of the Cool Cat Teacher blog, Reinventing Writing and co-author of Flattening Classrooms, Engaging Minds. I write, share and encourage educators everywhere to teach with excellence, passion, and the pedagogy to reach every child. 

Hosting Every Classroom Matters on BAM Radio and iTunes is a joy I look forward to weekly.The show has real classroom teachers doing amazing things talk about what they're doing in a short 10 minute shows published twice a week. I've keynoted more than 20 conferences in the past few years and traveled around the world sharing how you can have a world class technology program at your school without a huge budget. My focus is my students and my children, husband, three cats, and one dog and getting outside every chance I get. Oh, and I'm a prolific sharer on TwitterTumblr, Pinterest, Facebook, and beyond.

Cooking is awesome. People are amazing and talking to them about their lives is a joy. Reading and good books fill my life with learning. Teaching and technology can work well together if you know how and you have the self control to put down technology and pay attention to the human beings in front of you when they need you.

Teachers are the most amazing professionals on the planet and wish the very few who shouldn't be teachers, wouldn't. Teaching is a noble profession and I want to empower educators everywhere to reach every child.
