Hack Education Weekly Podcast


Every week, Steve Hargadon and I sit down (virtually) to talk about the latest ed-tech news. I always find our conversation to be one of the most thought-provoking exchanges I have all week.

Hack Education Weekly Podcast


It's been a couple of weeks since Steve Hargadon and I sat down (virtually) to talk about the latest ed-tech news and record our podcast. That means that this episode is pretty lengthy as we had two weeks' worth of news and analysis to discuss. Topics include opening versus open education, Apple marketing versus journalism, and the school-to-prison pipeline.
