In this episode, we share tools and techniques to engage all learners.  Megan Sova-Tower joins us to dialogue about UDL in her classroom.  And, we discuss the first draft of the new Iowa Digital Learning Plan.

We've added a new member to the Friendly Disruption team -- Patrick Donovan!  In this episode, we share tools to assist with color blind learners (Color Enhancer and Chrome Daltonize), hear from CCSD teacher Ernie Cox on how he uses Read&Write with his 10th-grade literacy students, and Patrick talks about his ISTE Ignite Session.  Another minor change, I've included the full version of "Against History" (our opening music) by Dan Wilson to the end of the show.  This song is used with permission and is not only a great song but also a great thematic fit.
