GotTechED The Podcast
GotTechED the Podcast was created in 2018 by Nick Johnson and Eric Guise with one, singular goal: to provide quality, tech-centric professional development (PD) to busy teachers on the move. As educators who have always been passionate about PD, Nick and Guise have attended and created hundreds of hours of professional learning experiences for teachers, but there has always been one problem ... time! Attending full-day workshops and conferences is difficult and stressful due to missed class time and added prep. With GotTechED, Nick and Guise hope to provide busy teachers a way to access educational PD at their convenience.
GotTechED is released every other Monday on iTunes, Google Play, and many other popular podcast platforms. The segments cover a range of topics, including pedagogy, trends, and lesson ideas, but always centered around educational technology. By interviewing teachers, students, and leaders in the edtech world, Nick and Guise hope to provide an engaging platform full of new and unique ideas. As a lifelong athlete and coach, Guise brings a competitive spirit to recurring segments such as the “Tech Battle Royale” where opponents argue over who has discovered the best new edtech. As an award-winning science teacher, Nick brings research and reflection that is unmatched in the educational podcast world. Together, they produce a show is engaging, fun, and inspirational.
