EdTech Situation Room Episode 20

Welcome to episode 20 of the EdTech Situation Room from August 24, 2016, where technology news meets educational analysis. This week Jason Neiffer (@techsavvyteach) and Wesley Fryer (@wfryer) discussed the ascendency of smartphones as the primary media consumptive screen in U.S. households, NASA’s recent announcement to make all its research openly accessible, Google’s decision to discontinue Chrome apps for Mac and Windows, and Verizon’s continuing metamorphosis from a “baby bell” telco to a global corporate player in digital media. The November 2015 article in the Atlantic by Walter Kirn, “If You’re Not Paranoid, You’re Crazy” was also a catalyst for reflections in the show, as well as NASA’s press release about it’s newly installed docking portal in the International Space Station for commercial space vehicles from SpaceX, Boeing, and other companies.
