Amy Lane - Executive Director, NEEF
It’s hard to say perfection is overrated, but there’s also value in not always getting things exactly right. Currently, there’s a trend toward maker-spaces in education where students are given an objective and told to figure it out. Working on teams and innovating means there are going to be fits and starts, dead ends and cave ins before finally, success. Those failures along the way are all part of the journey. Learning that success is not permanent and failure is not fatal is all part of the process. Welcome to BexarCast.

Eugene Jimenez, Senior Educator, Doseum
We’re getting better at social distancing. No one likes it, but, as humans do, we’re adapting. Zoom meetings are a poor substitute for face-to-face interaction. There’s something missing. You can still see people and hear them, but energy doesn’t flow through the internet the way it flows through a room. Eugene Jimenez of the Doseum is an interactive guy in an interactive job. And he has some ideas on how to get that interactive feeling back. Welcome to BexarCast.
