Description

Do we return to the status quo for education after the Covid-19 Pandemic or do we revision a new future of what education can look like for the future? Many around the country feel like our system is outdated and doesn't set up students for a modern future. In today's episode, we sit down with Nadav Zeimer to learn how as a Principal at a Harlem High School he has helped rethink how we teach our children. But he isn't done yet. He is looking at new ways to bridge the gap between the world of education and industry in all fields.

Known as 'Principal Z; he works at the intersection of technology and education. His book 'Education in the Digital Age' is a guide for the future of education. Nadav excelled as a software engineer in Silicon Valley prior to becoming an award-winning physics/robotics teacher, turnaround principal, and public speaker. The transition from software to education started when Zeimer founded a nonprofit focused on hyper-local radio production. As a teacher, Mr. Z integrated podcasting into his curriculum and was selected to lead a school design team. Seven consecutive years of breakthrough student outcomes followed, along with widespread recognition for his digital media-centered approach to school reform. Zeimer promises to end standardized testing in NYC high schools by 2040. Based on nearly two decades of experience, he has launched an open-source, blockchain ledger of "gold standard" high school credits. The Zeimer Family adopted their eldest child from Japan and currently serve as foster parents to a medically fragile child in Harlem.

It's time to democratize and decentralized education, bring back freethinking, and foster a new future of innovation and ideas.
