Inspire your teaching practice with podcasts!

EduMagician,


Are you looking to own your professional development? Want to take learning into your own hands (or in this case – ears?) I am excited to share a way that you can do just that – through podcasts! Podcasts are amazing resources for you to learn and grow on topics of your choice in an hour a day during your commute or in your PJs! I started to listen to podcasts to learn more about different teaching topics for new teachers to inform my own pedagogy and practice for preservice educators.

What are podcasts?
  • Audio shows about different topics.

  • The length of podcasts varies from ten minutes to an hour (or longer!).

  • There are podcasts available to you on every topic under the sun.

  • Podcasts are FREE to subscribe. Some of my favorite apps to listen to Podcasts include: Google Play, Apple Podcasts, Spotify, iHeartRadio, Pocketcast, and TuneIn.

There is a podcast show or episode out there for everyone. Subscribe and give them a listen! I know you will enjoy them.

  • House of Edtech - Learn all about educational technology tools and how to use them in your classroom with a purpose and meaning behind them. I love Chris’ tagline – educational technology isn’t difficult, just give it a try!

  • The Dr. Will Show - I love listening to the Dr. Will show on Monday mornings. His energy and excitement just set the tone of the day. Dr. Will supports educators and entrepreneurs to live their best life. His story is so awesome he made a movie made about it - check it out The Edupreneur.
