E65: Traveling The World To Bring History To Life with Dr. William Jackson, The Nomadic Professor The Homeschool Project Podcast

Hello and welcome back to the campfire! We are so excited to share today's conversation. We have Dr. William Jackson, AKA The Nomadic Professor, joining us.  William has a BA in Asian Studies from Brigham Young University, a MA in Humanities from Pennsylvania State University, and a PhD in History from Syracuse University. He has been teaching as a university professor for almost a decade.William has chosen to forego the traditional labor-for-tenure career track. He believes the internet holds the key to new forms of education that will, over time, erode and ultimately destroy traditional students in a brick-and-mortar-box education; and to this he says: "Hooray!" He grew up overseas and loves history.  We speak about how he became a world nomad with his family in order to record history mini-lectures on-location that are available to students around the world. We talk about his family's worldschooling journey as well as the creation of his platform and what it has to offer students and adults. So take a seat by the fire as we travel to Idaho to discuss his story of re-imagining education.  If you like what you hear and have enjoyed our show, please show your appreciation by subscribing to our Podcast and leaving us a review on your Podcast App of choice.We would love to hear from you so please email us with any comments or questions you have.Visit us and all of our content, including our blog, at http://www.thehomeschoolprojectpodcast.comAs always, let's Light A Fire They Can't Put OutThank you for listening!Show NotesHomepage | The Nomadic Professor (teachable.com)*use coupon code HOME to receive 30% off any of the courses/Nomad Nation on The Nomadic Professor's websiteThe Nomadic Professor on: YouTube and Instagram
