Season 1 Episode 43: Where do we get Inspiration?

By Chey Cheney

Chey and Pav, two experienced middle school teachers from the Greater Toronto Area in Ontario, Canada, take listeners through the in’s and out’s of the field of Teaching, Learning and Leadership. Through their anecdotal, yet often comedic banter, laced with caring insightfulness, they take their audience into a conversation that is surely eye-opening and entertaining, while tackling some of the real, and ever-changing issues that exist in Education.

In Episode 43 of the Staffroom Podcast, Chey and Pav talk about where they find sources of inspiration for their Podcast episodes. They discuss two particular sources, a current events curating app called Flipboard, and an app that allows for easy borrowing of ebooks and audiobooks from the public library called Libby.
Chey talks about his use of the Flipboard app. With this app he is able to select interests for the stories he sees on the board. Then he can flip through many articles and blog posts, opinion articles, editorials to be able to put together a “magazine” of his own. This magazine can be made public or it an be private, or shared with a select few individuals. It becomes a great way for Chey and Pav to be able to share articles with each other, which offer lots of discussion topics for the podcast.
Pav talks about the about the ability to borrow ebooks and audiobooks from the public library system using an app called Libby. Overdrive is another common one that allows borrowing. The app allows you to put several books on hold, and several can be borrowed at a time. It has made it easier to read many of the amazing books that are available for leadership and education. Pav talks about a few of the books that she has read.
Chey and Pav introduce Joey and Kerri, owners of 25/8 Coffee from Texas, for their 3 Enlightened Minutes segment. Joey and Kerri talk about their coffee company that gives back to teachers purchasing supplies for their classrooms.
After the 3 Enlightened Minutes segment, Chey and Pav wrap up by discussing a few of their favourite takeaways about their favourite places to get some inspiration for the podcast! 
Remember to Inspire, Don’t Require, always be a Humble Servant, and Education Never Dies.
