Bonus Episode: Boom Learning – WHAT?!

Boom Learning

With quarantine still going on, are you stressed as to how to take on the challenge of delivering quality lessons remotely, providing students a level of normalcy, and adjusting to life being stuck at home?


In this episode, I have something different for you. I was recently a guest on Be The Exception Podcast with Dawn Ellis, creator of Cultivating Exceptional Minds. Dawn is a qualified educational specialist with 10 years of special education experience, published journal articles, and is an awesome podcaster. She has a website and podcast where she provides valuable tools and resources to help teachers perform at their best while becoming confident in wearing the many hats that come with being a SPED teacher. 


Join us as I share our conversation about the e-learning phenomenon that we are all a part of right now. I will answer a lot of questions about Boom Learning, distance learning, and utilizing technology with your students at this time.


Amidst all the chaos and stress, I hope by listening to this episode you get a little bit of inspiration and creativity!




In this episode you’ll discover: 


  • My backstory and why I started creating digital resources
  • Useful resources for Boom Cards
  • How to integrate Boom Cards with Google classroom
