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!

Ep. 102: Wireless Earbuds In The Classroom And Omelettes

In this episode, I ask the question “are students allowed to use wireless earbuds in your classroom?” I look at this from different angles and explain the perception that this might give. We’ve all got a pair of Airpods, Beats By Dre, Skullcandy, Bose, or some other brand’s wireless earbuds. We see them in the hallways, gym, grocery stores, but are they acceptable in the classroom setting? What are your thoughts in this matter? All while discussing this topic, I’m chowing down on half of a country omelet and half of a French omelet. Why? Because I can! If you’d like to see my recipe for these omelettes, check out the video below.  Buen provecho!

Ep 128: Slack For Extracurricular Communication With Jarrett Lipman EdTech Bites Podcast

In this episode, I chat with Slack for extracurricular communication between directors, coaches, parents, and students with Jarrett Lipman. Jarrett is the band director for the Claudia Taylor Johnson High School in San Antonio, Texas and uses Slack as the main channel for communicating with his band members and parents. We actually recorded this episode while eating pizza at my house. He also gives us some insight on what it’s like to be a band director of such a high caliber band program.  Connect With Gabriel Carrillo EdTech Bites Website: https://edtechbites.com EdTech Bites Twitter: https://twitter.com/edtechbites EdTech Bites Instagram: https://instagram.com/edtechbites EdTech Bites Facebook Page: https://facebook.com/edtechbites EdTech Bites YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQCZcyW4BkCFQ5P2BLK61xg About Jarrett Lipman Since Claudia Taylor “Lady Bird” Johnson High School (CTJ) opened its doors in 2008, Jarrett Lipman, Director of Bands, has established a tradition of excellence both on the concert stage and on the marching field.  Under Jarrett’s leadership, the CTJ Wind ensemble is a consistent Texas State Honor Band Finalist and performed at the 2019 Mid-West Clinic.
