In partnership with the EdReach network, Tom Vander Ark and Getting Smart announce the start of a brand new podcast series, The Edupreneurs
. Each week (or almost every week) Tom will talk to a different EdTech startup edupreneurs and
dig into the stories that make some of the best education platforms and tools available. He’ll talk to the folks that started it all…. the founders!
To kick off the first of this series, Tom talks with Trenton Goble
, a co-founder and the Chief Academic Officer at MasteryConnect
. Trenton is known as an innovative leader who has consistently worked to improve student achievement. Over the last twenty years, Trenton has served as a public school teacher, middle school assistant principal, principal, and director of elementary schools.
Trent talks about his background and how MasteryConnect came about. He answers questions about his biggest challenges, how MasteryConnect tools can be implemented in schools and what is next for the EdTech startup.
Listen to the live Google hangout or catch up later at EdReach.us, where each episode will be posted and available for download or subscription through iTunes or Stitcher Radio.
MasteryConnect is a Learn Capitol portfolio company where Tom is a partner.
