Striving for Work-life Balance

A podcast about living and learning in the age of screentime. Welcome to Episode 17 of Season Two: Striving for Work-life Balance.

This episode is a special episode of the Technopanic Podcast in which we discuss the challenges of parenting, and teaching in a global pandemic.

Special Guests

We are joined by Kiersten Greene and Lydia Kitts on this special episode. Ian has been working with Kiersten and Lydia as they start up the Higher Ed Learning Collective.

Kiersten Greene is an associate professor for literacy education at the State University of New York at New Paltz in the Department of Teaching and Learning. She has been an antiracist educator and union activist for the past twenty years, and her scholarship critically examines the policies and practices of 21st century schooling. When she’s not teaching, reading, or thinking about the future of education, you can find her chasing her son (who can’t wait to start kindergarten next year!). Visit for more information.

Lydia Kitts is a Visual communications and social media professor – design agency owner – mom to two preschoolers. As someone with courses and a business now virtual, she’s learning how to balance screen time with family time – when everything seems to be online. Follow her on Twitter.
