Season One of the ConnectED podcast by Jostens consists of a five-part series hosted by different educational thought leaders and administrators. Each episode features a new guest educator who shares best practices and engages in discussions surrounding school culture and educational topics. The free podcast can be found on Apple Podcasts, GooglePlay, and Stitcher.
"For the past 30 years, Jostens has actively invested in helping school leaders build and maintain school cultures that connect every stakeholder group to their school community," said Dr. Tara Campbell, Senior Manager of Jostens Renaissance Education. "As a former educator myself, I know the role of a school leader gets more difficult each year, and will be exponentially more challenging this year. The ConnectED podcast provides relevant best practices to school leaders in a format that is conveniently consumable."
"It's a great thing to be a part of this community of amazing educators," said Chris Reeder, a Season One guest educator from Los Altos High School in California. "During times like these we need to rely on each other for ideas and inspiration."
The ConnectED podcast has already released episodes on The School Culture Formula, Leadership Training in Education, and School Traditions.
