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.

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!
