As education leaders, we often find that there are not enough hours in the day. The “job” never really has an ending point. We have to figure out for ourselves how to carve out some time for our own professional learning so that we can keep up with the very fast pace of change.
What if we did some learning while working (or walking, or working out)?
Podcasts are one way to learn while you work. If you have an mp3 player, you can download podcasts from a number of different sources and listen to them when you are exercising, washing dishes, or commuting to work.
If you aren’t sure yet how to download podcasts, you can also listen to many of them from your laptop. Some examples have been provided below.
The Whole Child Podcast (ASCD)
Moving at the Speed of Creativity (edtech from Wes Fryer)
The Current (CBC Radio)
You can find information on how to download podcasts to your iPhone, iPad or iPod here, or you can use one of the many podcasting apps available free.
If you are already a podcast fan, what are some of your favourite educational podcasts?
