Tips, tricks and thoughts for all teachers.
The crew at Concordia International School Shanghai are absolutely first rate. This podcast helps to give technology tips that can be used to support a wide variety of student learning. Michael helps to move the show along. The effervescent Jamie provides insight into working with teachers from a coordinator's role and the ever-quotable Chris manages to analyze and evaluate information with his broad scope of experiences, knowledge and yes, his wisdom as well.
The Concordia Ed Tech Podcast is more than just amusing (though it is that) and more than informational (which it is also) but it wraps them together and considers beyond just using gadgets because gadgets are fun but also the purposes and outcomes that help to develop students into contributing, critical-thinking members of society.
Great job Team Ed Tech! Keep up the good work.
