John Mikton has for a long time served as a lighthouse for many fresh and seasoned IT Directors alike throughout many parts of the world. And I landed a great interview with him!!!

The reason I’m so excited to share this conversation with all of you is that I feel really connect with his approach. John is not only the IT Director at the International School of Prague; he is actively participating with ISTE and ECIS in various capacities.

I will not type too much text to introduce this conversation. Listen to the podcast and learn about John’s approach to technology, teaching and learning, community-making and how to leverage technology to transform the classroom.

Also check out John’s blog; beyonddigital.org. It is full of great resources.

Tracey Bryan is one of two Digital Learning Coaches at The American School Foundation in Mexico City, Mexico. I’ve yet to meet anyone as thorough as Tracey in her approach to her work with faculty. She is beyond passionate in the classroom and even more so when it comes to finding ways to enrich learning using technology as one of many tools.

Our conversation goes to the very purpose of why techies exist in schools; to serve teaching and learning. Tracey ends the conversation with a great message to all techies, and I am sure you will agree she is totally right. Give a listen, and enjoy!
