What Will AltSchool Do with $100M? EdSurge Podcast, Week of May 4 - May 8

Mary Jo Madda

This week on the podcast, Mary Jo Madda and Michael Winters tackle two big questions from this weeks' news. 

First, what exactly is happening over at AltSchools? It raised $100M this week, but where does all of that money go? We discuss AltSchool's model and hear from the school's founder about its future. 

Second, Google Classroom celebrates its first birthday this week. But is the wide use of Google Classroom a good thing? Sure it's a high quality - and free - tool, but could that actually be a risk for teachers using it? 

As always, we'd love to hear your thoughts. Shoot us a note at feedback@edsurge.com. And if you like what you're hearing on this show, please tell a friend!
