EP96: Technology Under Review featuring Guest Host Tim Cavey The Staffroom Podcast with Chey & Pav

In this very special episode of The Staffroom Podcast, Pav is joined by Tim Cavey, educator and host of the Teachers on Fire podcast, co-hosting all the way from Vancouver, British Columbia for a great conversation centered around EdTech. Episode 96 brings into focus the value and hype that come with EdTech tools, all the way from integrated teaching tools like Padlet and Seesaw, to social media platforms like TikTok. Tim and Pav start by discussing whether or not EdTech is indeed way too "hyped" in our Covid teaching experience, and talk about the perspectives of agreement, and then also explore the opposite stance. They then discuss the abundance, or perhaps some would say, over-abundance of EdTech tools that are available to educators today. Tim and Pav round out their conversation by discussing Social Media, which can be a sensitive topic for so many educators, but also can be of such value in the teaching space.  This conversation is not only informative, but also filled with lots of fun comedy to keep you fully entertained!
