ENJOY THE PODCAST? SUPPORT MY SUPPORTERS! Support for this episode came from: My Awesome Supporters! Become awesome today! Feedback, Shoutouts, and Links Tina Monteleone left a great Apple Podcasts review! Who better to spend my weekly commute with than Chris Nesi. Chris and his #HouseofEdTech fill my mind with thought provoking ideas, great new edtech tips, and teaching strategies from amazing educators from all over our country. Chris and his commentary NEVER disappoint! Thanks Chris for #keepingitreal ✌️ PodcastPD Podcast with Stacey Lindes, AJ Bianco and I Tomorrow's Classrooms Today Conference #EdTech Thought (3:50) Stay Focused and Not Be Overwhelmed by Tech Here are some helpful tips to keep in mind the next time you’re having trouble keeping your thoughts in order: 1 - Work Within Your Brain’s Natural Schedule 2 - Reward Your Mind for Staying Focused 3 - Take Breaks (Real Breaks) 4 - Forget Multitasking 5 - Find Work That Keeps You Genuinely Engaged 6 - Practice Mindfulness 7 - Chew Gum #EdTech Recommendation (10:57) iLoveIMG is the simplest way to save time while working with images. iLoveIMG lets you modify images in bulk, fast! Everything you need for compressing, cropping, converting, and resizing is right here. You can even make animated GIFs in just a few clicks. Featured Content (12:00) This episode was inspired by George Couros's blog post, "It Is Time to Move Away from the Idea of “Tech Leads”? Here are the interesting quotes I commented on: For many people that have “technology” in their title, no matter the role, it means to other people “please come fix things in my classroom that use electricity”. "Another concern is that when “technology” is in the title of a position that is not about IT, it almost forces you to find ways to use technology in a classroom setting, whether good or bad. Go to a conference and someone uses Kahoot in a session, and then suddenly you have Kahoot parties popping up all over your school. Is this leading to deeper learning, or simply using technology more in classrooms for the sake of justifying a position?" Innovative Teaching and Learning Specialist is more the route we should go when it comes to crossing technology and curriculum. An ITL would assist teachers' integration of technology but more importantly, an ITL would work to improve instruction. Obviously, I would love to be in this type of position and make an impact on students AND teachers. So if you know someone who needs a guy like me send them my way!
