57: EdSpace.Live w/ Michael J. Crawford

Ep. 57

In this episode, Chris sits down with Michael J Crawford, co-founder of EdSpace Live, a new social media platform aimed at helping teachers connect in a more meaningful way than Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook. EdSpace Live is currently in development, with an expected release in November.

EdSpace.Live looks to help teachers connect on a deeper level by having a platform exclusively for them, where they can converse via video chat on podcasts, books, conferences, and more. Within this interview, we talk about:


  • How EdSpace.Live is different than current social media solutions.
  • What EdSpace.Live will do in order to ensure platform adoption.
  • How EdSpace.Live will deal with moderating varying communities of educators.
  • The plans for EdSpace.Live’s monetization.
