Students have passions. Podcasting or speaking about their passions and giving them opportunities to share what they know about content. The goal isn’t about launching on Apple Podcasts or Spotify. Schools & classrooms are the safe space for them to fail and learn. There are alternate mediums for podcasts - Slides with audio, PDFs, etc. Just need to use the right tool at the right time. Micro-podcasting examples: Mote in Google Slides, Flipgrid mic only mode, audio files in padlet, etc — Focus on content creation! How to get students interested or exposed to listening to podcasts? Encourage student to Google “what you’re interested in” podcast Teachers can find amazing podcasts related to content. Even ones with students as hosts.

Cindy Moorman ,

Great educational & motivational podcast :)

Jake does an excellent job of being supportive of all educators through his philosophy of educational duct tape tools. He’s also a bright spot my day when he infuses humor and motivational, uplifting messages in his podcast! I enjoy learning more about ed tech, but this year especially I enjoy the pep talks too. Thank you Jake!!

guisee ,

Great content every time

Jake provides listeners with great guests, theory and practice, edtech tools, and humor. He connects everything together through a centralized theme which is a metaphor called educational ducttape.

mompoloik ,

Invaluable Resource!

This is one of a handful of podcasts I never miss. I love Jake's format, and his topics are always relevant and informative.
