Announcing "No Such Thing," a podcast by Marc Lesser, Mouse Senior Director of Learning Design
Mouse is thrilled to share No Such Thing, a new podcast series by Marc Lesser, Mouse Senior Director of Learning Design, about "the promise and reality of learning with technology." Listen to No Such Thing: Episode Zero and read the blog post below to learn more about this new series!
No Such Thing: Episode Zero
In this episode, three young people -- alumni of NYC public schools and digital programs that supported their journey -- share their ideas and experiences about digital life and learning. Through their dialogue, the group explores how race, gender, learning context, and access have all influenced their experience.
About No Such Thing
The show is about learning with technology, the realities and exciting potential, but it’s also about youth and the practitioners who support them –- youth developers, museum educators, teachers, mentors, counselors, parents–as they grow their identity, and journey forward.
The show is produced in partnership with City University of New York’s Masters Program in Youth Studies (learn more on the School of Professional Studies website) and Mouse, a national youth development nonprofit that believes in technology as a force for good.
The music in this podcast was produced by Leroy Tindy, a guest in episode zero. You can find him on SoundCloud at AirTindi Beats.
The podcast is produced by Marc Lesser. Marc is a specialist in the fields of digital learning and youth development with broad experience designing programming and learning environments in local and national contexts. Marc is currently the Youth Studies Fellow at City University of New York, and directs the national efforts to design and develop web-based and live offerings for Mouse.
