007: Living on Edge of Chaos – Todd Henry

Todd Henry is the author of two great books – The Accidental Creative and his latest release Die Empty. You can check out his website http://www.accidentalcreative.com/ where you can find his podcasts and all social media links. 
I read Accidental Creative a few months back and absolutely fell in love with this book and his work. http://coffeeforthebrain.blogspot.com/search?q=todd+henry
I then pre ordered Die Empty and absorbed that book even more so. I liked it even more than Accidental Creative. The basis of the book is to help people, companies, businesses, and organizations do their most important work. As I read this book I could relate almost all of it to education and to the many ideas that I am striving for within my own job in education.
I sent Todd an email about chatting with me on this podcast and I jumped for joy when he said yes. 

Here is the link to his latest book, Die Empty: Unleash Your Best Work Everyday

Listen to the episode

On Friday I set up several tables that looked like the following
Augmented Reality Teacher Tinker Time is ready to go! #AR #coffeechugcafe #augmentreality #Framatic

I sent out the following email to all staff to come down to my room for Tinker Time

Just a reminder that Friday during periods 6,7,8 I will be hosting Teacher Tinker time. We will be looking at Augmented Reality

If you have a smartphone or tablet it would be great if you could download the following apps so you can begin to experiment and learn so we can create something very cool in the following weeks.

Aurasma
Layar
Blippar
colAR
AR Flashcards
Brain Scan

For Aurasma if you want to follow me (Coffeechug) and another teacher I know (pvjhscience) I can show you some classroom examples.

See you tomorrow.

001: Living on Edge of Chaos – Introduction

I am back to the podcasting world.

This episode is the first of my new podcasting series titled, “Living on the Edge of Chaos”

This particular run of podcast episodes will focus on the cutting edge ideas that are not yet mainstream, but will hopefully one day be something that all educators implement into their teaching.

This podcast series is my personal edge of chaos goal by creating a weekly show.

I give much support and thanks to Vicki Davis (@coolcatteacher) for helping me get back into the game of podcasting to help share out my ideas beyond just this blog.

As always, I would love for you to leave any feedback or comments on iTunes, this blog, or Twitter (@coffeechugbooks)

I would really love a ratings and/or reviews on iTunes to help get my messages heard by more people. I would be eternally grateful if you took 5 minutes to do so. Let me know if you do and I will send you Thank You Note!
