This week on WELSTech we welcome sunshine in the form of semi-regular classroom technology correspondent Jason Schmidt who shares his knowledge of Google Play for Education and Google tablet management. We also hit the jackpot in terms of listener reviews and share several solutions to assist with learning a new language.
