  4. Hello and welcome to this episode of EduTechGuys Radio brought to you by Southwest Arkansas Education Cooperative and Hope Public Schools. We’d like to thank CDWG for providing some of the equipment we use on the show. (Introduce ourselves by name)

  5. Topics

  6. Google will shut down “Play for Education” on March 14. The program allows educators to buy apps and push them to students. Existing accounts will be honored until the end-of-life on current tablets. On or after March 14, schools and teachers will no longer be able to buy Play for Education licenses. Basically, Google is turning over the MDM side of things to third parties. Plus, Chromebooks are the super-seller in districts, not Android tablets, so there’s no longer a seen need for the program.

  7. Coding in education – line-by-line, graphical, hybrid? With the push for nearly every student to learn some kind of coding, is old-school line-by-line coding the way to teach students or are more modern, graphical interfaces the way to go? In Arkansas, the 7th and 8th grade so-called “coding block” requires text-based programming for students.
