Publishing giant Amazon developed a tool for publishers and bloggers to market books, but in the process it may have empowered teachers to turn non-readers into lifelong readers. Kindle Instant Preview is helping educators bring books to life for students, and Instant Preview just might inspire even the most reluctant readers to dive into a book, once they peruse it from their tablet or mobile device. In this episode, Mark Barnes shares the Secret Sauce inside Kindle Instant Preview, which gives website and blog administrators the ability to embed any book on a web page or blog, so a preview of the book will appear there, making instant reading a one-click experience. But how does this rescue reluctant readers? Listen now to unveil this powerful secret that, according to Barnes, even Amazon doesn't completely understand.

Quotables

Coaches are in a weird purgatory- where's my identity?
With teaching, the stakes are always high
Listen, Listen, Listen
It's not about me. It's about what is best for kids.
What can my impact be?
Even tasteful leopard can be executed professionally
Equal parts accountability and follow up
Find your people/tribe/PLN...we all want to connect with somebody
Take your passion and make it happen
The space between....

In this episode we have the chance to interview Mr. Greg from The Kindergarten Smorgasboard for some great tips on how to use flexible seating in your classroom!

Greg Smedley-Warren has been teaching for 10 years. He received his bachelors degree from Indiana University and received my ELL certification from David Lipscomb University.  At the beginning of his career he spent two summers teaching in Ecuador which only helped to fan the flames of his passion for teaching. In 2015 I was selected as Teacher Of The Year by his peers. He also has a weekly show on the I Teach TV Network. He enjoys blogging, creating curriculum and resources for his classroom, and conducting professional development sessions to help teachers around the world make their classrooms a more fun, effective and interactive places to teach. 

When he is not in the classroom, blogging and doing all things teach, he enjoys spending time with his family. He lives in Nashville, Tennessee with his husband (known as The Mister on his blog) and their dogs, Butters and LuLu.

You can find Mr. Greg on his blog, Pinterest, Facebook, Instagram, Youtube, and Twitter

Thank you everyone for listening, and thank you to bensound.com for our theme music. If you enjoy the podcast and can review us on iTunes that would be awesome of you (it will help more people find us)!

In this episode of the show, I have the pleasure of speaking with the most fun name in education, Daisy Dyer Duerr, or as I would address her if it was normal, D Cubed.   Daisy was named the 2014 Digital Principal of the Year by the NASSP and has also been nominated for several Bammy awards. Daisy and I talk about her education background, what she’ll be presenting about at Model Schools this next week, what she would do differently if she could start over as an administrator, and rural education. She’ll be coming out with a new book this fall with another eduhero of mine, Mr. Derek McCoy, who I interviewed way back in Episodes 5 and 6 when I was just starting out podcasting.

Thank you so much for tuning into the show. Principally Speaking is a proud member of the Education Podcast Network, where you can check out other great shows like Daniel Bauer’s Better Leaders Better Schools Podcast. I had the honor of being a recent guest on Daniel’s show and talked about my experience as a newer principal. He also was a recent guest on my show, Episode 51 if you’d like to check it out.

I hope you’ve had a chance to catch some great conferences this summer. I’m currently planning on attending and presenting at two upcoming Indiana conferences in Warsaw on Monday July 25th and in Auburn at DeKalb High School on Tuesday July 26th.   I taught science at DeKalb High for 9 years so it will be great to connect with several former colleagues. Don’t forget that EdCamp Leadership is taking place July 11th all across the country. You can check out @edcampldr on Twitter to find out where EdCamp Leadership is happening near you. Thank you to amazing human Joe Mazza for leading this effort…I had a powerful talk with him back in Episode 47. Finally, EdCamp Fort Wayne is taking place Thursday July 28th at The Summit, which is an amazing venue. A big shoutout to Jennifer Brower, Andy Deatrick, Alison Schlotfeldt and Mandy Woollacott for putting this on.   Head to @edcampFW for more information.
