Episode 7 with guest Barbara Bray

Journeys to Belonging

Barbara Bray is a creative learning strategist who has been on a journey to transform teaching and learning. Her story goes down multiple paths that helped her find what she is passionate about and been fighting for. Through her work as a teacher, adjunct professor, instructional designer, speaker, coach, and writer, Barbara has been exploring ways she can make a difference in children’s lives. Starting in 1997, Barbara wrote a professional development column for CUE for 17 years, created her platform, My eCoach, and posted often on her website Rethinking Learning. In 2012, she co-founded Personalize Learning, LLC, and co-authored Make Learning Personal and How to Personalize Learning with Kathleen McClaskey. Barbara realized that she was focusing on how to change teaching but the rationale for teachers to want to change was missing. In 2017, Barbara started her Rethinking Learning podcast and the #rethink_learning Twitter chat with her co-host, Shelly Vohra. It was the stories all along that impacted her. She wasn’t living her life on purpose until she told her story and listened to the stories from inspirational thought leaders. She has been an advocate for educators for years through coaching and providing resources. Now she takes the stories deeper. This is why she wrote Define Your WHY: to help anyone who is searching to discover or rediscover their WHY so they can live and learn on purpose. #DefineYourWhy Contact Information Email: barbara.bray@gmail.com Website/Blog: Rethinking Learning Podcast: Rethinking Learning Podcast Founder/Owner, My eCoach Co-author: Make Learning Personal and How to Personalize Learning New Book "Define Your Why" #DefineYourWhy @EduMatchPublishing Twitter: @bbray27  #rethink_learning LinkedIn: barbarabray Google+: +Barbara Bray Facebook: barbara.bray Pinterest: bbray27 Skype: barbarabray48 Voxer: barbarabray48 Instagram: bbray27 TeachSDGs Ambassador Cohort 3 Wakelet webinar: https://youtu.be/j8N9iOAB-8g
