Ep. 85: EdTech Pet Peeves, Stacey, Chris, AJ, And Pork Roll

In this episode, we chat about one of the more negative aspects of technology integration. I connect with Stacey Lindes, Chris Nesi, and AJ Bianco, AKA the Podcast PD crew. We talk about the edtech pet peeves that we have. We are all guilty of doing something that others hate and that’s OK, it doesn’t make us any less of a person or educator. This list contains some things that you or your colleagues might be guilty of doing. And being that the Podcast PD crew is all based in New Jersey, what better meal to have than pork roll (or as AJ calls it, Taylor Ham). So try not to get too hungry while consuming this episode and check to see if you are guilty of some of these edtech pet peeves. Buen provecho!
