Maybe Episode 54 of the Hack Learning Podcast should be called Hacking the Live Show instead of Hacking Engagement because my good friend Jim Sturtevant and I definitely hacked learning during this collaborative effort.

Jim is the author of the Hacking Engagement: 50 Tips and Tools to Engage Teachers and Learners Daily. He’s also arguably the most engaging educator anywhere, and I can’t imagine you could find a 32-year classroom teacher who is better at connecting with students and making them love learning.

One day, as he was writing Hacking Engagement, I told Jim that he should create a podcast, around his book ideas because it would give stakeholders one more way to connect to the powerful knowledge he has to share.

A few months and many episodes later, Jim invited me to be a guest on his Hacking Engagement Podcast. So, what did we do? We hacked the project, creating a cross-posted podcast episode; that is, we chatted live on my show (embedded above) and recorded the discussion, so Jim can publish it on his show and launch it later.

Meanwhile, we had a fantastic conversation about our journeys in education, the evolution of Hack Learning, engaging teachers and learners, and enjoying a meal together in Little Italy, near Cleveland, Ohio.
