We join forces with rebootEDpodcast host Mike Vollmert and talk edTech.
Andrew asks, do we really need Learning Management Systems or Curriculum Management Systems? CUE is happening this week! Chromebooks are backordered and Mike still likes iPads.
Mike Vollmert joins Andrew to discuss Chromebooks with fellow Google Certified Teacher Jason Seliskar. Jason recently received a class set of Chromebooks through the DonorsChoose.org and Google partnership. And of course it wouldn’t be a Small School Big Tech episode if we didn’t get off track and start talking about something else, in this case it’s the Common Core. Much fun ensues.
In this episode:
