Interview 1 of The 30 Goals Challenge for Educators. Click the link to find out more about the 30 Goals Challenge for Educators.

For 2013, we are Hanging Out with some of the past and current participants of the 30 Goals Challenge for Educators. It was fun starting off the first of the series by hanging out with Vicky Loras who started the 30 Goals Challenge in 2011. She lurked for the first cycle till she felt confident to reflect on her blog in cycle 2. She completed 17 challenges.  Vicky and I became good friends on Twitter when I was living in Germany, the neighboring country to Switzerland where she lives. I finally met Vicky a few years back in Paris and we had such a great time. It felt like we had known each other for years. Watch the video, take the slideshow quiz, and/or leave Vicky a comment!

The live video Google Hang Outs on Air will be shown live on the 30 Goals Interviews Page when they take place. You can hang out with us while the interview takes place and ask the interviewees questions, too! We will be interviewing Lisa Dabbs and Tyson Seburn next. You can also type in a question by visiting our 30 Goals Facebook group and adding your question there. The recorded video interviews are on this Youtube 30 Goals playlist.
