Shukes and Giff The Podcast is a podcast founded by Canadian educators Jen Giffen and Kim Pollishuke.  The podcast aims to share EdTech treasures with the audience in hopes of creating an AHA moment and encouraging listeners to take those AHAs and give it a go.

Kim stepped away as co-host of the podcast at the end of the season 3 but does come back from time to time making cameo appearances and filling Jen's heart - and brain!  Jen often shares the mic with guest co-hosts who have their own AHAs to share.

Jen Giffen, formerly a secondary English and Math teacher, and Curriculum Consultant (Digital Literacy), she currently works as a Teacher Librarian in the York Region District School Board just north of Toronto, Canada.  She is a Sketchnoter and Google for Education Certified Innovator (#WDC17). Her teaching passions centre around EdTech and finding ways to reach struggling students and the integration of technology.

Kim is a Vice Principal in Ontario, Canada.  A former digital litaracy consultant and Google for Education Certified Innovator, Trainer and Educator and a keynote speaker. She is also a contributing author of Creating the Dynamic Classroom: A Handbook For Teachers. Her goal is to help educators understand the power technology can have in giving a platform for student voice, connecting students to the wider global community and ultimately creating confident, innovative, digital citizens for the 21st century.
