The ice has melted, many are off fishing, and schools have graduated their seniors in the rural areas of Alaska where our guests for this podcast are from. But our colleagues in Alaska have already begun planning for the next academic year, and on this podcast, you can find way to connect with them. In this podcast, we focused on the "Digital Foxfire approach to Placed-based Education" that seems to describe some of the work in the schools in Marshall, Alaska and in the Bering Strait School District (BSSD). Our guides for this conversation were:
- John Concilus, Director of Technology, BSSD
- Ginger Crockett, teacher Brevig Mission, Alaska
- Woody Woodgate, who will soon be working for the State of Alaska's Education and Early Development Department
- Flora Evan, Language Arts teacher, Marshall, Alaska
