The TCAPSLoop Podcast hopes to help make the Ed-tech landscape a little more interesting and much less daunting. Contributors to "the Loop" are fellow Educators and Specialists willing to act as your digital ed-tech tour guides. This is not meant to be a "White Paper" site replete with training videos and techno jargon (though there will probably be some of that), but a conversation starter and opportunity to have a bit of fun while sharing some potentially useful tips.
