This was a great episode of the podcast, I’m a junior at the University of Northern Iowa and in the Education program. I am in an education technology class and discovering a lot of stuff this semester. Thank you to Mark and Vicki both for introducing new ideas that I haven’t even considered before. What stuck out to me the most is when Vicki said “We know there is no such thing as stagnation.” I never thought of this before, but it is really true. I enjoyed this episode and look forward to more episodes of the podcast.
