Welcome to episode 240 (“Holiday Geek Gifts”) of the EdTech Situation Room from December 1, 2021, where technology news meets educational analysis. This week Jason Neiffer (@techsavvyteach), Eric Langhorst (@elanghorst) and Wesley Fryer (@wfryer) shared “geek gift” ideas in advance of the 2021 holiday season. From charging devices to tracking tiles, from home office upgrades to security tools, we’ve got your holiday shopping needs for the geeks in your life covered! Check out our podcast shownotes for links to all referenced products and gift ideas. Our show was live streamed and archived simultaneously on YouTube Live as well as our Facebook Live page via StreamYard.com, and compressed to a smaller video version (about 100MB) on AmazonS3 using Handbrake software. Please follow us on Twitter @edtechSR for updates, and join us LIVE on Wednesday nights (normally) if you can at 10 pm Eastern / 9 pm Central / 8 pm Mountain / 7 pm Pacific or 3 am UTC. All shownotes are available on http://edtechSR.com/links. Stay savvy and safe, and have a VERY happy holiday season!
It’s the holiday season, and for episode 33 we’ve brought you a special “Technology Shopping Cart” panel discussion helping you find the perfect gifts for the tech nerds in your life! Welcome to the EdTech Situation Room from December 14, 2016, where technology news meets educational analysis. Visit https://edtechsr.com/links to access all referenced links from our show. This week we had four panelists including Jason Neiffer (@techsavvyteach), Martin Horejsi, Miguel Guhlin (@mguhlin) and Wesley Fryer (@wfryer) share book recommendations and techie gift ideas under $10, in the $10 – $20 range, and the over $100 category. Everyone also shared a movie or video series recommendation to check out over the holidays. You’ll definitely want to visit our shownotes this week for a complete list of referenced links. If you purchase something, read something, or watch something as a result of our show please let us know! We’ll be back for one more episode in 2017 with our “EdTech Year in Review” show, but that date will be announced pending Jason’s European vacation travel plans. Follow us on Twitter @edtechSR for updates about that show’s date and time, which will most likely break with our “normal” Wednesday night routine.
