Excellent for Teachers in Scotland
I discovered this podcast after attending a cooperative learning course ran by Matthew and Jay.
It's very informative and up-to-date for teachers in Scotland and I have become a regular listener. Thank you
A Medley of Educational Ideas
I've found this podcast interesting, engaging, fun and infuriating in equal measures. The three primary contributors provide a variety of opinions on the educational news and associated issues of the week. These opinions range from thought provoking, well informed and balanced to exasperating, foolish and biased. But this medley makes this podcast worth listening to. Occasionally there are guest contributors that focus the episode on specific issues relevant to the guest. This adds to the variety and value of the podcast. Listen to these podcast with a critical ear and have fun thinking about educational ideas.
