Ep. 81: What’s In Your Tech Bag w/ Al Thomas

In this episode, I am joined by Al Thomas to discuss the burning question, “What’s in your tech bag?”. A couple of weeks ago, I created a Flipgrid topic and asked for people to show us what’s in their tech bag. Al and I go through those responses and give our thoughts before we go through ours. If you’d like to see the videos as well as Al and I going through our tech bags, this podcast was recorded with video as well and is available on YouTube. So tune in and check out if our tech bags have anything in common with yours. Buen provecho!

Ep. 108: 5 Year Anniversary At ISTE! EdTech Bites Podcast

This episode is a 5 year celebratory episode of the show. This show launched June 28th, 2017 and this anniversary episode dropped June 28th, 2022. In this episode, I chat with prior guests while at ISTE 2022 in New Orleans and ask them all the same question. The question is “If you could go back in time 5 years and tell your past self one piece of advice, what would it be?” While you listen to these responses, think about how you would answer that same question. Feel free to respond to this question on Twitter. Look for my Tweet with this question and who knows, I might just pick a random responder to win a Starbuck’s gift card. Thank you for your continued support of the show and I look forward to 5, 10, or even 15 more years of The EdTech Bites Podcast. Buen provecho!
