    #071 - AI, Assessment and it's Impact on Teaching and Learning

    AI can’t be used for all things.

    #070: How Supportive was your Learning Environment Last Term?

    Teaching and learning requires culture, routine, boundaries to test, relationship building and so much more..

    #069: The Truth about ICT and Focus Area 2.6

    Many educators respond to this focus area by giving evidence that their students are using computers in their learning.  I often see phrases like “We are lucky enough to have access to a class set of iPads".  On the surface, phrases like these (perhaps accompanied by a lesson plan talking about using the devices) seem to tick the “ICT" box. 
    Unfortunately, they do not. In this episode we explore why. What should your focus be when talking about ICT in your Teacher Portfolio?

Great breakdown for pre-service teachers

Short, sharp episodes that break down the realities of teaching. Bonus is the particular relevance to Australian teachers. Fantastic for pre-service teaches looking to start their portfolio as it explains how to address the standards.

Awesome tips and tricks for understanding the AITSL standards

Thank you so much for your quick, easy to understand, encouraging podcasts. Finally I feel somewhat motivated to get on top of my e-portfolio. Huge thanks!

Outstanding resource for educators and leaders

Anyone who is dealing with teachers and the registration and accrediation process for educators needs to listen to this podcast. It's very well produced, and the illustrations and examples are practical and easily applied. This is a great way for a teacher having to navigate the process on his or her own to access expert advice, and also for leaders who are assisting teachers on the journey to find a reference point for their role. Highly recommend!
