The Educator Pineapple

Welcome to the Educator Pineapple Podcast where trailblazers, pioneers and influencers in education, who all started their careers in the classroom, share thoughts and insights on topics from digital transformation, data literacy, blended learning, innovative design, and everything in between. Why the ‘Pineapple’ Podcast? - because much like pineapples, everyone will share their crown (area of expertise) and what they are ripening. Join us as we build a community based on vulnerability and empathy, that ensures we as educators aren’t reinventing the wheel but instead sharing and growing together.
