The #EduDuctTape Podcast, hosted by Jake Miller, focuses on viewing #edtech as a tool used to meet goals, address learning standards and solve problems in the classroom, much as duct tape is used as a tool that solves a plethora of problems in our lives. In each episode, Jake sits down with a different inspiring guest to share and discuss some awesome ideas for using tech in the classroom! Join us for Educational Duct Tape, every other week on Wednesday!

Great educational & motivational podcast :)
Jake does an excellent job of being supportive of all educators through his philosophy of educational duct tape tools. He’s also a bright spot my day when he infuses humor and motivational, uplifting messages in his podcast! I enjoy learning more about ed tech, but this year especially I enjoy the pep talks too. Thank you Jake!!
Great content every time
Jake provides listeners with great guests, theory and practice, edtech tools, and humor. He connects everything together through a centralized theme which is a metaphor called educational ducttape.
This is one of a handful of podcasts I never miss. I love Jake's format, and his topics are always relevant and informative.
