#8 Who’s behind the wheel? Are driverless cars coming?

This week Scott and I discuss the future of transportation. Some argue the greatest technological disruption in the near future will occur in the transportation sector. How will be get from point A to point B? Will computers take over driving responsibilities? What will the culture, social, and ethical repercussions be? How will this drastically altered transportation model effect the education system. We cover all these awesome questions PLUS introduce our new colleague in the CTLT, Ryan Brazell. I gotta be honest, this is a great podcast. Hope you enjoy!

#7 Music – How streaming services are changing the game

Music is something that Scott and I love. It’s also an interesting topic because it touches on so many of the issues we love to talk about here in the CTLT: technology, culture, and innovation. The way that society has consumed music has drastically shifted in the last century, particularly in the last 25 years. We have gone from buying physical tapes/CDs to renting access to online streaming music. We are in the midst of a new shift in the culture and technology surrounding music. Streaming music, having (legal) access to tens of millions of song at the push of a button, is changing the way we interact and even think about music. Scott and I talk about these shifts in light of the recently released Apple Music and how they impact us and the education technology landscape. Hope you enjoy the episode!
