Every week, Steve Hargadon and I sit down (virtually) to talk about the latest ed-tech news. I always find our conversation to be one of the most thought-provoking exchanges I have all week.

This week's podcast was a short one -- having Independence Day fall in the middle of the week made for a slow news week. Slow, except for the news about the Higgs Boson particle, a proposal for a "bar exam" for teachers, more NCLB waivers, the end to the "gainful employment" rule, LOLs over MTT3K-style satire, concerns over badges and certification, and more.

The link to the MP3 of the show is below, and/or you can subscribe to the podcast feed. You can also find the podcast in iTunes, as part of Steve's EdTechLive series.  

And while it's not really new news, I'm not sure I've ever promoted my new newsletter here.  You can sign up here for a weekly email from me that provides my take on the news and trends in education.
