23: ‘Once You See the Matrix, You Can’t Go Back.’ with Casey Liss

I am excited to share the very special conversation I had with Casey Liss for this episode. Casey is a developer, podcaster and writer based out of Richmond, Virginia. He has been developing software professionally for 14 years and in an amateur capacity since long before then. Day to day, Casey writes an iOS app for a local company; in his spare time, he records the podcasts ATP and Analog(ue), as well as writing for his website.

22: ‘Now they understand we can play, learn - with Swift. with Charlotte Billot

In this episode I had an interesting discussion with a fellow ADE and coding colleague, Charlotte Billot. Charlotte teaches in primary school in Toulouse, France. Charlotte is an engineering school graduate in 1994 and considers herself a life-long learner. Charlotte believes that it is most important to create a warm and inviting atmosphere for her students so that they are happy learners because happy learners are better learners. Charlotte has been teaching since 1998 in five different districts Charlotte is Apple Distinguished Educator, Class of 2015. She is also a Seesaw Ambassador and Book Creator Ambassador. I would like to thank Charlotte for taking the time to speak with me.

21: 'There's a Negation of Failure in This Beautiful, Utopian Space.' with West Chester University Swift Playgrounds Study Group

Alternative Title: 'Swift Playgrounds App: It's the Macaroni and Cheese to Where You Put the Vegetables That Is Computer Science!' I had the distinct honor of interviewing four professors from West Chester University of Pensylvania: Dr. Chris Penny, Dr. Laquanna Cooke, Dr. Heather Schugar, and Dr. Jordan Schugar. They recently conducted a study with their undergraduate education majors that looked at coding in the Swift Playgrounds app. We had a thoughtful and extensive discussion on learning programming languages, coding, transferring skills, and implications for undergraduate teacher preparation. I think you will enjoy the episode. I really enjoyed the conversation!

20: ‘Coding Is the New Literacy.’ with Larry Reiff

For episode 20 I had a fun and fascinating discussion with my friend and ADE colleague, Larry Reiff. Larry is an English Language Arts & Computer Science teacher at Roslyn High School in Roslyn, NY. He was one of the first teachers in the country to pilot a full 1-to-1 iPad program with one of classes and now leads professional development classes on tech implementation in the classroom. In the summer of 2017, Larry became the coding instructor at NJY Camps in Milford, Pennsylvania. This school year Larry is teaching a mix of Freshman Humanities, App Development, and AP Computer Science Principles. As an Apple Distinguished Educator and a Google Certified Teacher, Larry Reiff understands that 21st century students absorb and integrate information very differently than any previous generation. Larry is Apple Distinguished Educator, Class of 2011. Larry Reiff: Larry's school - https://www.roslynschools.org/Domain/12 Twitter: @MrReiff - https://twitter.com/mrreiff Larry's Website - htt...

16: Swift Playgrounds in the Classroom

I am really excited to share my interview with Joe Moretti, Anders Randler, and Daniel Budd, the authors of the new multitouch book *Swift Playgrounds in the Classroom.* We had a fantastic discussion of all of the materials available to to teach Swift, about the process of starting a coding program, and the many fantastic third party accessories that can be used to teach programming in Swift. I think you will really enjoy the episode. Note: please excuse the audio in some points in the episode as it was difficult to find a good time for a truly global exchange of ideas.

15: ‘Where Is the Apple Pi?’ with Dr. Nicholas Outram

In this episode we conclude the two-part discussion I had with Dr. Nicholas Outram. In this episode we discuss embedded systems, third-party hardware tools used to teach Swift, and possible outcomes for post-secondary educators having students who already know some computer science basics. Dr. Outram obtained a first-class (hons) degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering in 2002, then later a Ph.D. in Biomedical Signal Processing from the University of Plymouth, UK in 1997. He worked as a Development Engineer first with Wandle and Goltermann, focusing on real-time DSP software and hardware, then as a Systems Engineer with Neoventa Medical AB, focusing on development of fixed-point DSP for real-time signal processing of Ultrasound and Fetal ECG. Worked on design and validation of real-time signal processing algorithms, and later refocused back onto research into methods for quantification of fetal heart rate reactivity. He is now an Associate Professor in Computing and Electron...
