This will come as no surprise to anyone who knows me well. If there was an "Eric Curts Bingo Game" one of the squares would be:
- Eric says "Speaking of that topic, I was just listening to a podcast recently that talked about that, and I learned…"
For what it's worth, some of the other squares would probably be:
- Eric drinks a Coke Zero.
- Eric tells you about a movie or TV show you JUST HAVE TO SEE.
Back to podcasts though… I have blogged about podcasts before, including 11 of my favorite podcasts that deal specifically with Educational Technology. I would encourage you to check out that post to see that list of recommendations. However, podcasts can be a great way for you, and your students, to learn information from a wider range of topics.
At last count, my podcast app indicates that I am currently subscribed to 155 podcasts. Now I certainly can't listen to all of those, but they provide me with new options everyday to learn something new. In this blog post I would like to share some of my favorite podcasts for learning new information. These can be great for your own personal growth, to bring into class and incorporate into a lesson, or for your students to use for their own learning.
Note: Some of these podcasts can have episodes that deal with more mature topics, but the hosts are always good about mentioning that early in the episode if that is the case.
