Ep. 108: 5 Year Anniversary At ISTE!

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!

Ep. 105: Paperless Test Prep And Pulled Pork

In this episode, I go over three different strategies you can use with your students to prepare for state testing. Best of all, none of these three require making copies. This is especially important since there is a worldwide paper shortage. As far as the food is concerned for this episode, I chow down on a pulled pork sandwich with some homemade coleslaw. There’s a giveaway in this episode for a $10 Starbucks gift card so make sure you give it a listen. Buen provecho!
