As you may have heard on the latest episode of The Edtech Take Out podcast, a public beta of Book Creator for Chrome was officially launched this summer at the ISTE 2017 conference in San Antonio, Texas. Book Creator already has apps for iOS, Android and Windows devices, but this new update means your students can have full access to Red Jumper’s creative storytelling platform on the web with a Mac, PC or Chromebook. Sounds interesting, right? Well, here’s what you need to know.
In a recent episode of The Edtech Take Out, Mindy and I did something we have wanted to do for a long time. We interviewed some instructional coaches from the schools we work with in order to get their take on what it is like to do what they do. It was a great conversation so I wanted to share it here as an example of some of the amazing things that are happening in classrooms near me.
Regular readers may know that I co-host a podcast with my colleague, Mindy Cairney, called The Edtech Take Out. We started in January 2016 and have recorded 15 episodes so far, with more planned for release very soon. For our last podcast, we were invited to record live at the ITEC Fall Conference in Des Moines, Iowa. It was a great experience, and we loved connecting with other educators to learn new things to take back to the teachers we work with.
Because the content of the podcast is very similar to the content I add to this blog, I thought I would do a little cross-promotion and add a post here when new episodes are released. So, if you have never listened to the show before, those of you with Apple devices can listen on iTunes while Android users can use Google Play Music. The Edtech Take Out is also available in all good podcast players so you should be able to search and find the show in Overcast, PocketCasts, and more.
All new episodes are posted at dlgwaea.org/podcast and can be listened to there on the embedded web player. I also upload all our episodes to YouTube, so there are multiple ways to listen, depending on what is most convenient for you. If you haven’t listened to the show before, we would love to have you as a listener, and maybe even a future guest! The YouTube version of our ITEC episode is below, so feel free to take a peek.
