Welcome to episode 216 ("Luvin' Google Ain't Wrong") of the EdTech Situation Room from April 21, 2021, where technology news meets educational analysis. This week Jason Neiffer (@techsavvyteach) and Wesley Fryer (@wfryer) discussed the impending return of Parler to the Apple App Store, the amazing dynamics of WikiPedia following the January 6th U.S. Capitol Riot, and the tendency of negative political tweets to garner more user attention than others. The important role of Darnella Frazier in documenting the homicide of George Floyd with her smartphone, Apple's redesigned iMacs with Apple silicon chips, upgraded iPad Pros, and newly announced "Air Tags" by Apple at their marketing event this week. The start of "the podcast war" between Apple, Spotify and others reflected in Apple's announced changes to the Apple Podcasts feature of Apple Music, "performance mode" in the Microsoft Edge browser (similar to Chrome 'tab suspender' extensions minimizing browser user of computer memory), and new Chromebooks from Lenovo were also discussed. The potential for adblockers to mess up Google Documents in your browser (hopefully a bug that has now been fixed) and the new "documents" tab in Google Photos were additional Google headlines discussed by Jason and Wes. Geeks of the Week included computer/device reselling websites Swappa and Gazelle, and a Saturday, April 24th free webinar by Wes about innovative teaching strategies for language teachers.
