Fishing for Problems: educators as designers

Associate Dean Punya Mishra was interviewed by Matt Schneidman (Curator, Creator, Podcast Host) for the Fishing for Problems podcast. Schneidman publishes an ed-focused newsletter, Spanning Boundaries. The discussion was broadly framed around educational technology and the TPACK framework, but they covered quite a bit of ground beyond that as well—from whether “educational technology” even exists to the idea of teacher agency and design; from the philosophical ideas of Niel Postman to science fiction of Ted Chiang. A large part of the fun for Associate Dean Mishra was that Schneidman had clearly done his homework, as evidenced by the very first question he asked about Mishra’s “23rd Law of Parenting.”
