This podcast is sponsored by ‘AppsEvents. We’re a Google Education Partner and active since the launch of ‘Google Apps for Education’ in 2006. We’re a team of former educators, and experts in helping schools integrate Google into their schools and classrooms. We customise all our training for each school to make sure we have a lasting impact.

Thousands of educators worldwide have earned their Google Educator Certification with our Certification Boot Camps, which take place worldwide and get you and your staff certified quickly.

We also host ‘Google Summits’ which are fun 2-day conference-style events with concurrent sessions & keynotes delivered by experienced Google Trainers, delivering training on a broad range of topics using G Suite in the classroom and school setting.

Check it out over at appsevents.com and we can also host one at your school which is a great way to build a Google community amongst your staff to support each other, plus increase the profile of your school. It doesn’t need to be a big commitment from the school and we can start with a small ‘bootcamp’.

This podcast is also brought to you by Acer for Education. People ask us what Chromebooks we recommend for schools and after trying them all we always recommend Acer.

We’ve been to Acer HQ in Taiwan to be part of product discussions and they are genuinely the best thought out, and most importantly durable  devices out there.

They are always innovating, including the first tablet running Chrome and the first convertible touch screen Chromebook. The latest version is the Spin 11 with Stylus and 2 cameras and we highly recommend it!

They also of course have a full range of windows laptops and for eSports fans their Predator range is second to none.

This is the first in an occasional series of podcasts I want to do on one of my favorite topics ‘teacher entrepreneurs’. Many teachers are looking to start an entrepreneurial endeavor as a ‘side hustle’ and some to do it full time. We hear the stories of teachers who are doing just that!

Andy Fossett has had an interesting entrepreneurial journey. He moved to Japan to teach in a rural school where he was the only foreigner. He transitioned to founding GMB - a company providing online fitness training. They also run in-person workshops around the world.

A lot of people's first experience of living and working abroad is as an ‘English as a Second Language’ (ESL) teacher, often working for a language school. This can often be the first step towards a career at an International School and it a path followed by this week's guest Will Henry.

Will worked as an English teacher in Taiwan before returning to the US to take his teaching certification with a program that places him in an inner-city school. This lead to him returning to Asia to work for a school in China. We talk about his career and adventures along the way.

We first met Aaron and Steve earlier in 2019 in Taiwan where they attended an AppsEvents Google Summit. They were both teachers in Beijing, China and recently left to form their own company called ‘Inspire Citizens’ which focuses on ‘Global Citizenship’. Their organization helps schools build a culture of global competence, service learning, and relevant problem-based learning, built upon local and global community engagement. They incorporate a lot of design thinking principles which is a huge interest of ours at AppsEvents.

Aaron and Steve are both interesting and thoughtful guys and it’s a great story of ‘teacher entrepreneurs’ and please let me know if this is interesting to you as I would like to record more interviews on this topic.

We also talk a lot about what it’s actually like to live and teach in China and the realities of daily life there for anybody considering a move to one of the ever-increasing numbers of International Schools.
