Prognostications & Tetrachords

Ben Rimes published on

Interested in listening to Ben and Pete ramble on for far too long about what the future of technology looks like? No? Well then, this episode isn't for you :)

We tackle a few questions about speakers, feedback, apps on student devices, tricky 1:1 scenarios, and a lengthy birdwalk into the future of technology. Halloween costumes and tetrachords round out this episode.

Timestamps for this week's questions:

1:36 What has Pete been up to?

3:05 Chris wants to know, how do I lower the high-pitched sound coming from my classroom speakers?

5:27 Can teachers change settings or add apps on student laptops?

8:55 A listener wants to know, what technology should I be learning about to keep up with students?

12:30 Ben is still rambling on about predicting technology five years in the future.

15:00 Seriously, this is a REALLY long birdwalk of a question.

15:48 Jeremy from Twitter wants to know, what’s the best 1:1 computing program for a High School where “take home” is NOT an option.
