In this final post of the Inspiring Women Series, I chat with Kara Levy, a lead engineer at Google who is working on the Google Classroom project. As a female engineer working to transform education, she is the perfect voice to inspire and close out the series. Kara shares more about her work at Google, her inspiration to become an engineer and advice to young girls hoping to follow in her footsteps.

In this third of the Start Up Spotlight series, I chat with Jan Zawadzki and Jack West of Hapara. Hapara is an amazing system to, as they say, "make learning visible." It turbo-charges the power of Google Apps for Education to empower both teachers and students to seamlessly manage workflow, student support and instruction. From sending supportive messages to students to seeing each students' screen in realtime to managing and distributing Drive files, Blogger posts, and Google Sites, Hapara has a myriad of tools to create a truly paperless and poweful classroom environment. In this video interview the CEO and founder Jan and classroom teacher-turned Hapara leader Jack share the origin story of the start up, how they leverage teacher thinking and their philosphy for supporting educators around the world.

A Tale of Failure, Passion and Drive (pun intended): Meet Andrew Stillman, the Godfather of EduScripts
For Connected Educators Month, I decided to connect with some educators... through Google Hangouts. I reached out to some folks who I believe are making positive change in the world of teaching and learning and asked them to join me for a quick video chat to learn more about how they got started, what drives them and what the future holds. The first in this series is Andrew Stillman, the godfather of edu-scripts.
