ESOL + Tech = Winning Combination

As a longtime ESOL educator and edtech enthusiast, this is one podcast where I never miss an episode. Brent and Ixchell’s podcast is still the only one that focuses in specifically on ESOL and technology, which is so necessary. I appreciate their conversation style and learn something valuable in every episode - they interview educators and leaders in both fields and I practically run to my computer after to look up the tools and tips they share. I especially appreciate that they begin with recent and relevant research, apply it to the conversation about the technology and offer practical tips as well. If you are teaching ESOL, you must listen!

Fun hosts, useful content

When you listen to this podcast, it feels like you’re having a conversation with the hosts. Because it’s enjoyable to listen to, I stay engaged and absorb more of the content. And the content - it’s useful and relevant, not overly theoretical or technical. The hosts are in-service teachers, so you know they’re going to give tips and tools you can apply in your classroom.
