In this episode, I chat Esports with Jacob Luevano. Being that we’re quarantined to our homes, many of our students (including us parents) are playing video games more. Jacob and I discuss what esports is and how his district is implementing this evergrowing industry and how it is effecting our students physical and social-emotional learning. But there’s more! He even shares his secret recipe for pulled pork. I’m not going to lie, it made my mouth water. Be safe and Buen provecho!

This episode is the audio from a livestream I held with Tisha Poncio and Jacob Luevano a couple of weeks ago. We streamed this webinar through Periscope when school closures were announced. Our goal was to curate a list of tools for educators to use with their students for distance learning. Going through an overwhelming list of tweets and posts through social media platforms can be extremely overwhelming, which is why we hosted this. As you are going through your distance learning with your students, you might realize that you’re already using some of these tools. We are going through best practices with these tools as well as different ways to use them. So strap in (as I know you’re not going anywhere), and hear what we have to say about some of our favorite tools for distance learning. Buen provecho!
In this episode, I break bread with Eric Curts. Not just break, fatty brisket to be exact. We have a great conversation all about well-being. And what a more perfect time to discuss well-being than Spring Break! Eric gives some great advice as to how he has focused on digital well-being in order to be a more balanced individual. So make sure you check this episode out and hear what Eric and I have to say about well-being… and fatty brisket. Buen provecho!

In this episode, I’m joined by Tisha Poncio to discuss the differences between Digital Citizenship and Digital Literacy. She’s a passionate Digital Learning Coach from Celina ISD and has done some great things with students at that district. In addition to these topics, we also discuss where she goes for donuts while in Austin, Texas. This episode was recorded entirely with a Rode SC6-L and my iPhone. We are in an extremely loud environment but I wanted to put this mic to the test. So tune in and check out what Tisha has to say about Digital Citizenship and Digital Literacy.

Happy New Year and welcome to 2020! In this solo episode I chat about what changes I’m making for 2020 and ask the listeners some questions about how to go about making change. This is a 10 minute episode that is easy to digest (no pun intended) but will make you think about what to change about yourself in 2020. In addition, I chow down on some garlic noodles with jumbo shrimp. The full recipe will be posted later this week on the site. Buen provecho!
