In each episode of the Inside Our MIND podcast, we take a look at issues and challenges facing education that we are working to address through research, technology and strategic initiatives.
In our latest episode, Brian welcomes Paul Blair, Director of Product for ST Math Platforms, to the program to provide some insight into the design process for the new ST Math. Paul sat down with Brian prior to the release of the new ST Math to talk about some of the needs and goals that drove the redesign of the new program, and how the community of ST Math users helped inform the process.
