Great tips and ideas!
I have learned so much from Katie on this podcast, both quick tips and big ideas for longer lessons and units. Katie always presents the information in a clear and consise way. This podcast has helped me stay on top of learning all the new tech, which has been especially helpful during this pandemic teaching year. Thank you, Katie!
I have learned so much!
I am a music teacher and I have been listening to these podcasts for about three weeks now and I have learned so much. This is a gift to all teachers (not just music teachers). Katie is humble and charming and has a lovely way of sharing useful technology resources for teachers. Highly recommended if you love using technology to help, enhance and make your lessons interesting and meaningful!
Worth every minute
I so enjoy listening to Katie and her guests. Never an episode goes by that I don’t learn something new. A great investment of time.
