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. 91: Roxi, Coaching During A Pandemic, And Sandwiches EdTech Bites Podcast

In this episode, I chat with previous Roxi Thompson to look at how coaching was redefined during the pandemic. We reflect on our jobs as educational coaches a year later and examine what we learned and how we will move forward with these new skills. We connected during our lunch times so what better food to share virtually during lunch than a good sandwich! It’s a great episode that any instructional or edtech coach can learn from and more importantly, use as a means as a reflection. So grab yourself a sandwich and give this episode a listen.
