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 how you can do just that – through podcasts! Podcasts are excellent resources 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 pedagogy and practice for preservice educators.
What are podcasts?
Audio shows 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 to. 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.
