The Literacy Dive Podcast

Aug 29, 2022

I’m so excited about today’s episode because it’s a topic that I haven’t discussed in almost 100 episodes, but is so important and relevant in our world today. That topic is multimedia in a 21st century classroom. Now, you might think you know what all of this entails, but some concepts discussed might surprise you. To help me dive in, I have guest Rachael Parlett and we’re discussing using multimedia to support readers in a 21st century classroom.

Rachael Parlett has been an educator for 16+ years, having spent most of her time teaching 4th grade.  Currently, she is the founder and creator of The Classroom Nook, an educational company that supports upper elementary teachers with resources that make learning interactive, engaging, and fun for both teachers and students.  She is also the host of the podcast The Classroom Commute where she shares tips, strategies, and best teaching practices for a 21st century classroom.  

Most recently, Rachael, along with her husband, Jacob, have founded a second educational company called LINKtivity Learning - a membership that provides teachers with a growing library of interactive digital resources known as LINKtivities.  LINKtivities have been used in tens of thousands of classrooms around the world and provide students with a multimedia learning experience that truly ignites the love of learning and is powerful enough to meet the demands of a 21st century classroom.  

At the heart of everything, Rachael believes that classrooms should be student-centered, hands-on, and collaborative.  She loves sharing this passion with educators around the world.
