In the latest episode of the K12 Tech Talk Podcast, co-hosts Josh, Chris, and Mark dive into various topics. They start with a listener email about a teacher using nickel-based paint to block cell and WiFi signals in their classroom (as posted on the K12TechPro Community). They also discuss a Reddit thread about allowing a Nintendo Switch on the school network. They highlight the top stories of 2023, including artificial intelligence usage and readiness, cybersecurity concerns and the shift to data exfiltration in ransomware attacks, and the burnout experienced by tech directors and CIOs in a post-pandemic world. The episode features an interview with David Wren, CEO of NTP, who discusses their sponsorship (and partnership!) of the podcast.
