Instructional Tech Talk is a show designed to help you integrate technology into your classroom, building, or district. It doesn’t matter if you are a classroom teacher, building administrator, district tech, or superintendent, my goal is to introduce new technologies that could be implemented in a variety of ways to help promote student learning.

As an educator I find these podcasts to be very helpful. They are informative, interesting and easy to listen to.
Some great discussions and extremely relevant info for current trends in education. I look forward to each episode and learn something new each time! Thanks!!
Hip, eloquent, relevant, and entertaining, Jeff discusses topics that every edtech-savvy person thinks about (or should think about). Striking a superb balance between apps and gizmos, PD, professional advice, and online content, plus product reviews and interviews, no topic gets stale. The show really moves well. It's been exciting to listen to the show take shape, and I look forward to hearing future episodes. Keep up the good work, Jeff!
