023 – HETP – The Great IVC Reply-All Fiasco and Canvas Updates

Tim & Brent look at what happens when everybody starts hitting “Reply-All” instead of just letting things be. This leads to a conversation about e-mail etiquette and best practices. Then they jump in to some great new updates to Canvas.

016 – HETP – Why Does IT Make Us Do That? and a Look at Poll Everywhere

Tim shares the IT side of things when teachers grumble about safety and security requirements, letting us know why certain systems are in place, and how to best deal with these rules when we can’t stop them.

We then talk about using Poll Everywhere for various polling and temperature gauging purposes to have a better understanding of your class, what they do and don’t understand, and where they need more help. 

015 – HETP – Brent & Tim Go to Class with Carolina Kussoy

Brent and Tim bring their gear into the Carolina Kussoy’s Social Media Marketing Class to share how podcasting works with students, and then to hear from them about what they do and don’t like when teachers integrate tech (or fail to do so) in the classroom. 

This episode features short Q&A sessions with current Irvine Valley College students who give real feedback about what they think about their classes. 

We then pull professor Kussoy aside to share her thoughts on using technology, getting better with it, and understanding student needs and expectations.

Please share this special episode with teachers to hear what students really think about what does and doesn’t work in the modern classroom.
