Webinar Recording - Two Ed Tech Guys Take Questions

Last Friday Rushton Hurley from Next Vista for Learning and I held the first episode of Two Ed Tech Guys Take Questions (if you have a better idea for a title, please tell us). Lots of people came and lots more asked me about a recording. Rushton recorded it and put up a page of resources. The recording is embedded below and the slides from the session can be seen here.


If you're wondering why I'm looking away a lot, I had two computers going so that I could monitor chat and pull up questions.

Next Friday Rushton and I will host episode 2 of Two Ed Tech Guys Take Questions - And Share Cool Stuff. Join us live at 1pm ET / 10am PT.

A Student View of Joining a Zoom Meeting on an Android Phone

A few days ago I got an email from a reader asking me what it looks like when a student tries to join a Zoom meeting on an Android phone. It was a good question because it is important to have an understanding of what a student experiences when he or she tries to use the technology that we're requesting them to use. I made the following short video to show what it looks like when a student joins a Zoom meeting on an Android phone.

It's important to note that students can join without installing the Zoom Android app. This video shows what it looks like when students join without installing the app.


On a related note, here's my overview of how to schedule and start a Zoom meeting as a teacher.

The Practical Ed Tech Podcast - Episode 39B - I'm Tired and Can't Count

On Friday I recorded the 39th episode of The Practical Ed Tech Podcast. You might be saying, "but Richard, last week wasn't last week the 39th episode?" You would be right because I called it that, but it turns out I lost track somewhere and skipped an episode so this is really the 39th episode.

This week's episode is a short one. I had a long week answering lots of questions from colleagues as well as followers of my blogs and YouTube channel. In this episode I answer questions from readers, share my thoughts about Google Hangouts with students, and shared a couple of neat do-at-home educational resources you might want to share with parents.

You can listen to episode 39B of The Practical Ed Tech Podcast right here or on your favorite podcast network. The show notes can be found here.
