Anna and Helen do a terrific job of delivering a multitude of instructional technology resources in each episode. They are a wonderful pair, sharing valuable sites, apps and activities teachers can use with students immediately. Listening to Tech Chick Tips is fun and easy, like sitting with teacher friends, exchanging ideas. I always look forward to new episodes.

Awesome!!!

Rank #1: 0096 TCT - Determined to publish!

First we get kicked out of Barnes & Noble because they close. Seriously? Why can't they be 24 hours? Don't they know we need to podcast? And then we go to the patio of their Starbucks and face the two foot tall beetles that wanted to see what we were up to, the 40 mile per hour winds that required we HOLD our laptops and the daisy chaining of surge protectors (yes, we each carry our own) to be able to reach a table. THEN they have to chain down the tables and chairs. With us in them. We move a car next to the building and feed the cables through the open window and sit inside to podcast in as wind-free an environment we can muster. Then we get so overly exhausted we can stop laughing at all of the shirts in the "funny" section of Cafe Press. Until it's after 1am and we finally attempt to go our separate ways only to find out that we've run down the battery and have to use one vehicle to jump the other. See?? See what we go through for YOU, our worthy listeners?!
