House of Edtech’s Chris Nesi – Episode 45

Hello, and welcome to Episode 45 of the Planning Period Podcast, your #EdBreakroom. I’m your host, Brad Shreffler.

This week on the show I am joined by Chris Nesi. If you listen to any other education podcasts, you almost definitely know Chris. He is the host of the House of Edtech, co-host of PodcastPD, creator of the Education Podcast Network, and producer of a few other podcasts as well. He is passionate about education, technology, and all things edtech.

Chris and I talk about podcasting, the many shows he’s involved with, his years of work on House of Edtech, why New Jersey is the heart of education, the gap between the “real world” and the actual real world, providing resources to every student for what they want to be, the value of being bored, the importance of being creative and the creative process, authentic audiences.

So, sit back and enjoy Episode 45 of the Planning Period Podcast, my interview with Chris Nesi.
