The House of #EdTechpodcast explores how technology is changing the way teachers teach and the impact that technology is having in education. Host Chris Nesi’s objectives include discussing the technology that is changing classrooms and schools, and sharing information teachers can hear about today and use tomorrow. Nesi talks to teachers, leaders, and creators, and invites them to share their stories. He is also the cohost of PodcastPD. In 2015 he founded the Education Podcast Network as a way to connect with other education podcasters and provide a place where people can easily access the best in education podcasts.
Schools have—for the most part—opened, which has been a monumental lift for districts, schools, and most of all, teachers.

In so many ways I’ve seen how schools, coaches, and teachers have cleared the hurdle of offering an education to students nationwide.
It has been over a year since the COVID-19 pandemic shut-down school districts nationwide. The U.S. shifted into a state of loss and then grief. Loss of what we thought was stable including income, job security, and daily routines. Loss of over a year’s worth of social plans we had for ourselves including graduation parties, family reunions, and weddings. Plans have been put on hold repeatedly and hearts have felt the heaviness of disappointment non-stop.
