I use every opportunity to learn and I have taken professional development in a variety of “unconventional” ways. One of my favorites is using podcasts to grow as an educator. Many podcasts last one leg of my commute and I can multitask by driving and learning simultaneously – and not run afoul of texting while driving laws! #Bonus
The Infused Classroom recently polled fans and came up with the following top three educational podcasts.
1. Google Teacher Tribe
The Google Teacher Tribe Podcast is a weekly podcast designed to give K-12 educators practical ideas for using G Suite and other Google tools hosted by Matt Miller (Ditch That Textbook) and Kasey Bell (Shakeup Learning).
2. Cult of Pedagogy
Teaching strategies, classroom management, education reform, educational technology — if it has something to do with teaching, we’re talking about it. Jennifer Gonzalez interviews educators, students, administrators and parents about the psychological and social dynamics of school, trade secrets, and other juicy things you’ll never learn in a textbook.
3. StartEd UP
Join student and teacher hosts, Don Wettrick and Hunter Stone, as they interview experts in education, innovation and entrepreneurship while discussing how anyone has the power to change the world and live life to the fullest.
