Hack Education Weekly Podcast


Every week, Steve Hargadon and I sit down (virtually) to talk about the latest ed-tech news. Well, almost every week.

We cover two weeks' worth of education technology news, as well as two of my year-end trends posts.

Top Ed-Tech Trends: What's Changed from 2011 to 2012?

I’ll string out the posts that cover these over the next 6 weeks — and not just because it’s time for the obligatory-end-of-year-wrap-up-crap posts that we bloggers churn out throughout the month of December.
