This podcast is made by educators who are truly looking for connection and discussion regarding education, technology and innovation.
It’s wonderful to see what teachers geek out on, that teachers of the NOW are also creating in the moment as well.
It’s also a great model for anyone to listen to- The Hosts discuss how they’re not waiting to learn “how to make the perfect podcast”, but instead going ahead with what they know- and learn whatever they can along the way.
Great podcast, and I am not in the field of Education. However, I deal with technology on daily basis and consider myself a lifelong learner.
Go GREG! GO McCUSKER! GIVE IT A GO EVERYONE!
