Automate the Boring Teaching Stuff

Your Hosts

About this Episode

Isn't it surprising how much repetition goes into the job of teaching? What if you could use Python to automate that and focus on the work that adds the most value for your students? Or at least eliminate the boring teaching stuff like transferring grades or setting up iPads.

With thanks to Al Sweigart and his book, Automate the Boring Stuff With Python, Kelly and Sean look at how teachers can leverage Python to speed up or eliminate the most boring and repetitive aspects of teaching.

This episode includes a walkthrough of an example project that Sean built to automate iPad setup at his school using Google Cloud Functions, JAMF Server APIs, and Apple Device Management.
