Moving Forward: Remote Possibilities

 


In a normal world, it would have been one of the biggest edtech stories of 2020. After 14 years, Chief Education Evangelist Jaime Casap has left Google Education. In this exclusive interview with host Kevin Hogan, Jaime discusses his past successes, education’s present priorities, and, most importantly, what’s next.

Jaime evangelizes the power and potential of technology and the web as enabling and supporting tools in pursuit of promoting inquiry-driven learning models. He collaborates with school systems, educational organizations, and leaders focused on building innovation and iteration into our education policies and practices. He speaks on education, technology, innovation, and generation z, at events around the world, at least when there were events.

In addition to his role at Google, Jaime is also an author and serves on a number of boards for organizations focused on education, innovation, and equity. He teaches a 10th-grade communication class at the Phoenix Coding Academy in Phoenix and is an adjunct professor at Arizona State University, where he teaches classes on policy, innovation, and leadership.

Casap was responsible for launching Google Apps for Education (GSuite) into the university space in 2006. He signed Arizona State University, the first major university to switch from using their own email platform to putting it on the GSuite platform. He launched GSuite into the K12 market in 2010 by signing the state of Oregon to a statewide agreement for all their school districts and launched Chromebooks into education in 2011.

Says Casap: “I never wanted to be a vendor in the education space. I wanted to use my experiences and expertise to be a thought partner with universities and K12 institutions on building the future of learning together. Working with education institutions across the world, I am helping education leaders use technology and the web to level the playing field for all students. I believe education disrupts poverty. I believe education changes a family’s destiny. I believe technology can help us do these things faster than it was ever possible before.”

Even before the pandemic, Casap has been an instrumental force in combating the issue of equity in education. To follow his next step subscribe to his Youtube channel.
