Regular readers here know that I listen to a small library of curated podcasts as I walk my dog Lucy in the early morning. It’s part of my personal learning plan.
Many of you may be way ahead of me on this recommended listen, but I recently added Tom Whitby (@TomWhitby) and Nancy Blair’s (@BlairTeach) #EdChat Radio podcast to my queue. In 10-12 minutes Tom and Nancy recap the recent topic of discussion from that week’s #EdChat, and they include a visitor or interviewee to add additional perspective and commentary.
For me, it’s quickly become a #MustListen. The sessions are concise catalysts for critical topics in education and learning. Check it out.
This week’s slot with Angela Maiers (@angelamaiers) about “20% time” and “Genius Hour” is a fantastic thought provoker about cultivating learner curiosity and creating intentional space and time for scaling innovative practices.
Hello! Four of us (Denise Krebs, Gallit Zvi, Hugh McDonald and I) had an interview with Vicki Davis on BAM Radio, as well – http://coolcatteacher.blogspot.com/2013/05/engage-students-supercharge-learning.html?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter – all about Genius Hour. We’ve had Angela Maiers as our role-model / mentor along the way.
Can I ask a favor? Could you link the radio broadcast to the site where we can find it easily? The BAM Radio site isn’t the easiest to navigate, and I’m having a difficult time finding this broadcast. Thank you so much!
Joy, I’m looking forward to listening to your interview with Vicki. Thanks.
I agree with you about the episode navigation and direct link. Here is a link to the podcasts via iTunes, and the episode I referenced is “Conflicts of Interest: Carving Out Time for the Genius Hour on the Way to the Common Core.” It was released 6-4-13. https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/edchat-radio/id586119906
