Brian Buffington and Bucky Bush talk with me about EdTech, GIFS, Gifts for Non-Techies, and Gifts for Techies. This is episode 330 of Teaching Learning Leading K12, an audio podcast.
Brian Buffington is an EDU pioneer, always sniffing out better ways to increase student engagement and learning through technology. He inspires thousands of teachers, admins, and students in regards to instructional technology strategies, professional media production, and digital living education.
Brian has presented at national, state, and regional conferences, highlighting EdTech and science education. His background includes teaching middle schoolers about science, owning music venues and vintage clothing shops, and writing songs about cheese and “8th Grade Mustaches”.
His most recent endeavors include: creating professional development specifically for teaching during a pandemic entitled, “Into The Unknown”, releasing new music with the songs “Rufio”, “Stretchy Pants”, and “Poo on my Shoe”, and cranking up the #buffmagic to make virtual learning fun and engaging. 
Since 2017, he has broadcasted an annual cyber safety event on Facebook LIVE, “A Parent’s Guide to Raising Digital Natives”. In 2019, Brian directed and produced “Vape News”, a PSA video series aimed to combat student vaping.
When Brian is not playing with tech, he’s playing House Concerts and singing #happymusicforthemasses. Along with his wife Brooke, he owns a Creative Arts Company, Studio Blue. The Buffingtons reside in Northeast Georgia, where they raise 2 crazy kids and look for adventure.
