Christopher J. Nesi is the host of the House of #EdTech podcast and the creator and founder of the Education Podcasting Network. Chris is also a co-host of the PodcastPD podcast. He is a certified social studies teacher in New Jersey. Technology and its role in education are his professional passion.

Chris and I talk about why some people have tech phobias or believe that they can't do tech in the classroom. We also discuss how tech can best serve the classroom teacher as well as the obstacles that many teachers face in using technology for learning. 

Chris is definitely a podcaster. We spent some time reflecting on the House of #EdTech and the education podcasting network.

I thoroughly enjoyed talking with Chris. There is so much to learn and think about.

Thanks for listening and I hope that you will share this episode with your friends, colleagues, and family.

Lady Lucy’s Laugh Giraffe Journey with Karen Gross - 201

It's World Giraffe Day and Lady Lucy is back to help Giraffe with her Lady Lucy's Laugh Giraffe Journey written by Karen Gross and Marc Wine. Every June 21st is World Giraffe Day and this interview was released on June 21st, 2018 to celebrate the launch of Lady Lucy's latest adventure.

This journey is quite different from her last two in that this book is a joke book with many of the jokes written by kids. The story was published as a collaboration with the Giraffe Conservation Foundation. The foundation also helped to review the book to make sure that its facts were correct.

The book is filled with jokes that kids will have fun sharing, especially with their family. It also has several pages of giraffe fun facts and there is a parent-teacher guide to help with using the book as a learning tool.

Additionally, Karen is encouraging kids to submit names for the giraffe that are featured throughout the book and there will be an auction of this giraffe collection. The proceeds of the auction will benefit children who cannot afford the books as well as the Giraffe Conservation Foundation. Part of the profits of book sales will also be contributed to GCF.

The book is colorful and fun! Kids are sure to get a kick out of the many wonderful jokes. I'm sure adults will chuckle right along with the kids.

I had fun talking with Karen about Lady Lucy's Laugh Giraffe Journey and I think you will enjoy listening and reading the book.

Happy World Giraffe Day - June 21st.
