Real commentary and advice
Thanks for this shot in the arm podcast. Topics are always relevant and give encouragement to try new things and think critically about what we're doing in our 21st century classrooms.
I’m down with this podcast but as of episode 144 there are random ads for non educational things. Right smack in the middle of 144 there was an ad for google pixel. Super annoying.
I am a long time enthusiastic listener, but I am pretty shocked by the mean tone of the new intro. Why is it considered ok to speak to colleagues in a kind of patronizing and vicious tone that we would not dream of using with students? It does not help teachers who want to improve, but don't know how. Would be great to hear the more positive tone again.
