Invitation to a podcast on podcasts

Recently, I read an article by Ian Lamont about podcasting. Written for a business journal, the author questioned whether podcasting had actually lived up to the hype that had been generated a few years before. He looked at the value in monetary terms with podcasting and asked whether the technology was actually paying off. Essentially, he was asking “How many people are listening?”





Of course, loyal readers of this blog are well aware that I hate when education is compared to… Continue

No whine Left behind

Ever notice that in the entire conversation about how we have to adapt our educational methodologies to the needs/wants/desires and ways of the new "millenials" no one ever says that maybe, just maybe, the kids learning have to take a bit of the responsibility?
