2015 2015-Stories of Connection

Adam Jones Education Podcast Creation Story

Published by:

Presenter: Adam Jones
Location: Andover, NH, USA

Presentation Title: Adam Jones Education Podcast Creation Story

Presentation Description: In this 17 minute video, I tell the story behind the creation of the Adam Jones Education Podcast. This presentation falls under the “Stories of Connection” theme because I am eager to share how the Podcast has catalyzed my own learning and encouraged others in my PLN to share their stories. At the heart of the story are the three critical ingredients for learning: time for obsession, connection with experts and time to build a prototype to learn from failure. Additionally, producing a regularly occurring Podcast raises questions about how to best promote it with an audience because it really is all about sharing other people’s work beyond our PLN. I continue to learn a ton about leveraging social media for sharing.
