TMO Background Mode Interview with Academic Director of IT Bradley Chambers

Bradley Chambers has been managing Apple devices in an education environment since 2009. Currently he’s the IT director at a school in Chattanooga, and he’s also a contributor to 9to5Mac via his weekly column: “Making the Grade.” Bradley told me about his work as an IT administrator, how iPads and Macs are deployed, configured and repaired. There are some good tools for doing that, but they’re also supplemented with Google docs and JAMF tools. His kids are taught programming at an early age with Swift Playgrounds, and it turns out that the iPad offers just what his students need for a K-5 curriculum. We finished with a discussion of a few of his recent columns, including why digital textbooks generally failed in the market as well as thoughts about the state of Apple’s iBooks Author app.

This week, our sponsor is Molekule.

Molekule is a complete reinvention of the air purifier, not just an improvement on existing, outdated technology. It was developed by a scientist whose son suffered from asthma and who was frustrated by the fact HEPA air purifiers did not relieve his son’s symptoms.

Molekule introduces a breakthrough science that is finally capable of destroying air pollutants at a molecular level. Molekule’s PECO technology goes beyond HEPA filtration to not just capture but completely destroy the full spectrum of indoor air pollutants, including those 1000x smaller than a HEPA filter can trap, that is, 0.3 micron.

The results have transformed lifelong allergy and asthma sufferers’ lives. One customer even said that she was “able to breathe through her nose for the first time in 15 years!”

Technology development of Molekule has been funded by the EPA.

Molekule’s technology has been personally effective and verified by science, but most importantly, it’s been tested by real people. Molekule has already helped allergy and asthma sufferers around the country better cope with their conditions and significantly reduce their symptoms.
