Tech Director Chat #39 – Apple TVs & The Future of Google Classroom

As I slowly work my way back into semi-regular blogging habits, I thought posting latest episodes of Tech Director Chat would be a good way to kick myself in the pants. It’s not a terribly engaging episode, educationally speaking. But I do get a bit wonkish on the business of “ed tech” and why I don’t think Google will ever push their Classroom to be a full-fledged LMS. The short of it? They don’t want to piss off all the software vendors they partner with by stealing their business. The long of it? Well, you’ll have to listen

The rest of the episode is rounded out with a lot of good technical and troubleshooting questions about Apple TVs, and why we have to put passcodes on them for airplay mirroring in my district. For those that don’t have restrictions activated for an Apple TV in a school setting, you should definitely make sure that happens. Pete and I go over a social media policy that our district has in place, and follow all that up with an opportunity to “stump Pete” and I’d call this one full podcast.
