In this episode, I connect with Thomas Murray to chat about authentic edtech integration. We discuss the myths and debunk what some might consider “edtech integration”. It’s a great conversation fueled by passion, leadership, and chicken wings! Thomas is a huge fan of “buffalo anything” so we figured that buffalo wings fit best for this conversation. So make sure you give this episode a listen. Don’t forget to leave a review and thank you for listening. Buen provecho!

He has testified before the US Congress and has previously worked alongside that body and the US Senate, the White House, and the US Department of Education.

In this episode, I connect with Andrea Aguirre to chat about the equity and access issues going on with the minority communities. While discussing, Andrea walks us through how to make authentic Mexican Enchiladas, not the Tex-Mex stuff. It’s a great conversation and one that needs to be had amongst those beyond our pay grade. So try not to salivate or get hungry during this episode. Don’t forget to leave a review and thank you for listening. Buen provecho!

In this episode, I reflect on the one year anniversary of the global COVID 19 pandemic. I take a look at how our lives as educators and how our students’ lives have been changed. There is no guest on this episode nor is there edtech tools, tips, or how-to’s. There is however, steak! I’m a big fan of steak but we don’t buy it too often. We reserve this for special occasions and this occasion is special… in a different way. It’s not a celebration, rather a moment of reflection on how this past year has redefined education, us educators, and our personal lives as well. So strap on the ol’ feedbag and let’s get into this. Buen provecho!
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!

In this episode, I connect with Carl Hooker to chat about the sustainability of remote learning. While discussing, Carls also takes us through how to make his famous pizza dough. He talks us through this as well as shows us on his “pizza cam”. I made mine prior to us connecting so I had to play the waiting game with Carl. It was all worth it and we have a great conversation. If you’d like to see video of Carl making his pizza dough, make sure you check out the YouTube video as well. Don’t forget to leave a review and thank you for listening. Buen provecho!

In this episode, I chat with Pawan Uberoy regarding his product, Whiteboard.Chat. He covers the many features this edtech product brings to the table and how it can really increase student engagement. Being that Paway is from India, he challenged me to make one of his favorite dished, Chicken Tikka Masala. And that’s exactly what we did. We made this delicious meal and broke bread virtually while chatting the ins and out of student engagement with Whiteboard.Chat. If you’d like to see what Pawan and I discuss, make sure you check out the YouTube video as well. And if you’re interested in my recipe for Chicken Tikka Masala, make sure you are subscribed to the EdTech Bites YouTube Channel as I will be dropping a recipe video for this dish soon.

In this episode, I chat with David Polgar from Grade Transferer. Let’s make this easy for everyone. If you input grades into one system and then have to transfer them to another program, such as your Student Information System, then this episode is a MUST for you to listen to. David tells us how the idea for Grade Transferer came to be, how it works, and how teachers can get started using it right away. So download this episode and give it a listen during your commute, workout, or as you’re grading to hear how to make your life a bit easier with Grade Transferer. Buen provecho!
About Grade Transferer
Teachers have to spend way too much time on things that aren’t actually teaching. The quality of lessons suffer as a result, because time is wasted on clerical work like data re-entry rather than crafting engaging lessons and activities. David & Kinga (both teachers, from families of teachers) came up with GradeTransferer to combat the major time-sucking challenge of getting grades from Google Classroom into your gradebook without you having to retype and sort them all. GradeTransferer can save you hours per week and is now used by hundreds of districts and tens of thousands of teachers. It’s a small app that can make a big difference in a teacher’s life!
In this episode, I chat with Jacob Luevano and Mike Washburn. We discuss how video games have evolved and how they have affected our students. Teacher mindset as well as how students use these skills in and out of the game are discussed and we also chat how Among Us is used in education by various educators. In addition we also talk some of our favorite video games to play during our downtime. It’s a great conversation (no food in this one though…sorry) that will make you want to pick up a controller while listening. Buen provecho!
Also, on December 28th, I will be hosting a 2 vs. 2 Rocket League competition. So feel free to team up with a family member, friend, colleague, or someone from your PLN and reach out to me on any social media platform or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested. More details to come in a blog post.

He’s a Chicago native so he also lets us know where the locals eat in Chitown. I’ve never been there myself but when I do go, I know where to eat and more importantly, who to eat with. Buen provecho!
