Top quotes from the podcast

“You have to really, really work hard to get the accommodations you need, but once you get them, it allows you the ability to take education into your own hands.”

“Guess what? The education system has not changed, and it's 2017.”

“There's really no solution to everything. There's not “one size fits all.” It's more ‘one size fits none’.”

“I have a technology called Sonocent. What it does is it records the lecture, divides up the components of the lecture, and then to the side of that, you can take notes. So, while you're listening and reviewing, you can listen to what the lecture says AND read your notes.” (13:09)

“If you have slow processing and you miss things, well, [Sonocent is] right there—as opposed to having to ask people you don't know for their notes, which kind of gets embarrassing… [it’s] made all the difference.” (13.37)

“I’m gathering data, and gathering stories, and gathering testimonies from the students who have experienced [edtech] firsthand, and then finding ways—effective ways—to share these stories.”
