EdTechSR Ep 261 WWDC 2022 News

Welcome to episode 261 (“WWDC 2022 News”) of the EdTech Situation Room from June 8, 2022, where technology news meets educational analysis. This week Jason Neiffer (@techsavvyteach) and Wesley Fryer (@wfryer) discussed social media and “the tech correction” (Big Tech and the prospect of government regulation.) Security, privacy, and new announcements from WWDC 2022 (Apple’s WorldWide Developer Conference keynote on June 6, 2022) were also explored, along with some Google news. Geeks of the Week included NeverSSL, the “NASA Firsts!” Kahoot game, and Twitter Data Dash.
