This week on the TechEducator Podcast we discuss a recent New York Times article that focused on the topic of Teacher Ambassador Programs. For many teachers, a strong relationship with educational technology companies provides a support community for which they share ideas and interact with teachers across the country.
In this episode, we take a look at the ethical and often unspoken rules of interacting with 3rd party companies and how to successfully find needed support without creating educational waves in your current place of employment.
