Episode 50 of the EdTech TV Podcast discusses what willpower means and some alternatives to help you keep your resolutions. It also looks at bridging the gap between the analog and digital world for those of us who love our paper. Also, a look at the updated EdTech.tv Logo.
After much deliberation, I decided to update the EdTech.tv logo to better reflect what I want to do with the site and the podcast. The change is not major, but it is significant in giving me the freedom to focus more on Education and the various discussions that I’ve felt handcuffed from discussing. The new version emphasizes the Education over Technology, but still makes it clear that the technology lens is still a major focus.
