      Dannenberg, David; DeHass, David (University of Alaska Anchorage, 2016-04-01)
      Yo nerds, We are back. I know it’s been a while but we are finally able to get our podcast edition updated. Technical difficulties plague us all. Josh the Intern has been working behind the scenes and thanks to him we are up an running once again. This week’s show focused on the use of Wearable Technology, that is technology that you wear and interact with on your body. With the wearable market looking it increase to a $50 billion industry in the next ten years, its important that we understand what it is and how to take advantage of it in education moving forward. Forbes just had an interesting article if you want to read up. We also had another round of It Happened In Texas (iHiT). It never ceases to amaze us on what happens in the second largest state. Road tripping for Sad Papaw cookout Bakeries feud over 4-sided doughnuts Demolition company destroys wrong home by mistake (TX) This week we also used YouTube to live broadcast the the show. After the show YouTube muted the audio. We are guessing it’s because the music during the commercials break. We are working on getting it corrected. Until then we won’t embedded it here, but if you want to check it out, you can here. We will back on air next week to discuss UAA’s Department of Education Title III grant focused on Building a Robust Online Environment. Until then, keep those ear holes listening,

Deb has been a fixture at UAA for years and the host of KRUA’s Informania radio show, airing Wednesday’s at 9 am. Having Deb join the show was fabulous and she might have become our new favorite guest.
