Dynamic Professional Development through Micro-Podcasting

With the increasingly challenging schedules that educators keep and manage throughout the day, providing opportunities for professional development can be challenging. While full or half day workshops can yield powerful results, another approach towards professional learning can provide just-in-time learning experiences to impact the thinking of educators without demanding excessive time commitments. While podcasting has emerged as a powerful medium to share and consume ideas, even that medium can demand a serious time commitment. This session will explore Micro-podcasting, which is an adaptation of the medium of podcasting with audio, along with the visual impact of professional learning via video. Join us as we will explore both the intention and technical process to begin micro-podcasting in your district.
