On the 31st episode of EdUp EdTech, I got to chat with Sam Kary, CEO, and Founder and Thom Gibson, Creative Director of the New EdTech Classroom. Sam and Thom are both former educators who want to help current educators dive into the wonderful world of edtech armed with the confidence and resources to make any classroom engaging and dynamic. During this episode, we chat about all things EdTech including all the wonderful resources Sam and Thom have created and curated for educators looking to use EdTech in their classrooms. These two are two of the coolest and most down-to-earth humans I've ever chatted with.
