Tony – No more SAT/ACT – GPAs- No Grades – and What you need to do if you want to do this…
OK – I am skeptical about this. Apparently you can turn all of your WordPress.com articles into a podcast on Anchor.fm. I like Anchor and I am still worried that Spotify has purchased it and others that could share that same space (looking at you Soundtrap.com).
So I thought I’d give it a try. I mean we have over 700 articles on IT Babble so let’s connect the two and see what happens.
Dear GOD!!!! So I created an Anchor.fm account and there was nothing to connect my blog. I like Anchor because it is so straightforward and simple. So I did some research and found this video. It’s a short video and they give an email link at the 6 second mark. The narrator says a URL. The address she is saying is “anchor.fm/wordpress.com” or so I thought.
Tony and Patrick are back at it again for the last episode before our winter breaks. Check out all the goodness below and if you’re worthy enough. You will learn the true power of streaming (that’s a bad Star Wars joke) 🙂

Tony’s advice – Unplug from the media/social networks
Today, Patrick interviews Tony DePrato about his HIFLEX set up in the classroom. HIFLEX is a term that refers to students who are in the classroom and also at home and both are learning synchronously. Tony utilizes iPads and a few other items and tools to bring this affordable solution to life.
