Top: Corey, Kym, Renee – Middle: Spence, Jessie, Joe – Lower: Gina, Tim, Maura

Here we go – it’s Tim’s turn! Being Senior Project Supervisor at Rutgers University, he’s the perfect choice to host this show – and since Joe is Multimedia Services Director at Cal Baptist University, why not pair the two of them to drive this one?

And you’ll notice something in the title, which leads to a podcast plug during the show (and you’ll find out who on this show has appeared on that one).

The topics of discussion:

When it comes to staying at the forefront of technology, how do you provide the latest and greatest, while at the same time making it accessible to users of all technical levels and still staying with budgetary constraints? 

What are the current strategic technologies that are appearing? For those in Education what is the next big thing? 

And then, of course it’s time for…

When a university bans access to Netflix, iTunes, Spotify and other streaming services on campus, will the students become smarter? Or will they just be spending extra time at Starbucks?

The Washington Post: Purdue University bans Netflix, other streaming services for students in academic buildings

Sides are chosen in The Firing Range (of course), they’re uneven (of course), and there’s a surprise ending to this one as someone walks away with the win hands down.

Hands down – slam dunk, grand slam, hole in one (you get it).

Toward the end Gina talks about upcoming AVIXA Women’s Council events, Joe plugs away, and Jessie talks about his band. Make sure you attend the AVIXA Women’s events, listen to Joe’s podcast, and follow the band. Trust us.

Sit back, plug in, get edu-teched with Tim, Joe and the rest of the group as we live…
