Welcome to the Ben N Ben Homepage!


Thank you!

      The Ben N Ben Show  was a wonderful way for Ben and Ben to express their interests in technology and discover their passions for education.  We both would like to extend a huge thank you to Mrs. Barr for providing us with more mentorship and support than either of us could ever have asked.  We would also like to thank Yarmouth High School, all the folks MLTI (Jim Moulton, Chris Toy) , EdTechTalks, Governor (and now Senator-Elect) King for providing the resources necessary for us to succeed.  And lastly we would like to thank all of our listeners for engaging with our discussions and hearing what we've had to say over the years.  Thank you!

The Ben N Ben Show is a monthly webcast that airs on http://edtechtalk.com.  On our show, we cover many topics including instructional technology, 21st century education, progressive schooling and much more.  We work hard to have a variety of guests, and it is thanks to our awesome guests that our show is becoming such a success!  The show is made possible with the help of the incredible SEEDlings network with Cheryl Oakes, Alice Barr, and Bob Sprankle at the healm.
