In this episode, Zac, Dan and Alex attempt to condense an entire 3-day technology conference into the best tidbits. They probably fail, so you should go to fetc.org and look up any sessions you missed when you were there. There's also a special interview with Ami Shah from Peekapak, a fun elementary education tool to teach character ed to kids.
In this episode, Dan and Alex rap about the process of collaborating in a constantly connected world, and the fears (and benefits) of sharing "too much" of your story with your students. We also get kind of philosophical about the word "resolutionary" and quote people on Twitter that are smarter than we are. Enjoy!
In this episode, we discuss the dangers of speaking about technology with an air of pessimism in schools, and build upon last week's chat with Eric Sheninger, in which he asked a lot of good questions about inspiring "awe" in our students in these connected times. In addition, we also ask ourselves if teachers sometimes misrepresent the role of technology in the classroom. In fact, we seem to have more questions than answers!
Welcome to the #EdTechAfterDark After Hours podcast! In this inaugural episode, Zac, Dan, and Alex discuss a variety of EdTech topics including how to keep kids curious within the walls of a public school, what it means to be an EdTech trailblazer, and what the next steps in student/teacher digital evolution could (and should) look like.
