2020 Smackdown - HoET170

2020 Smackdown - HoET170

Listeners share the #edtech they loved in 2020. Co-hosted by Derek Larson.


#EdTech Thought

Derek Larson was the substitute host of this podcast during the Fall of 2020. In this segment, we discussed what he learned during his time in the power chair. I pushed him on when he would be starting his own podcast.

I can’t thank Derek enough for stepping up and volunteering to host the podcast while I was focused on other things.
