Tech Tip #8 - PodcastsWhat is it?
The first 7 tools I've highlighted have been for students, but it's time to switch gears and highlight one for teachers. I have found that listening to podcasts while I drive or work around the house is a way for me to continue to be a learner. I love hearing new ideas and feeling empowered to try new things. The best thing about podcasts, they're free PD and many of them have Facebook or Twitter communities to connect with the hosts or other listeners.
How do I get started?
- Download a podcast app. I have a Pixel 3 so I used Pocket Casts, but there are loads of options.
- Subscribe to a few to get started. Not sure where to start? My favorites are the Google Teacher Tribe hosted by Kasey Bell and Matt Miller and the House of EdTech by Chris Nesi.
- Still not sure where to start? Many of these awesome podcasts are members of the Education Podcast Network. Their site does a great job pointing you in the right direction depending on your interests.
