Coffee with a Geek Interview with Silky Vyas
Great edtech interviews and commentary over a good cup of coffee... Coffee optional.
I'm so honored to have Silky Vyas as my first guest of the 2022 year. I've been following Silky for a long time on Twitter and she shares fantastic ideas and resources. Her background is incredibly extensive so it was a real challenge to keep my interview under 30 minutes. However, she has a great way of crystallizing big topics into more manageable parts. An asset for any teacher.
