    Media and technology are at the center of kids' lives every day. From a very young age, kids use technology at home and at school to connect with friends and family and to document their lives and create digital content of their own. With more and more of life happening online, what catches kids' attention isn't always what's best for them, and what companies do with their personal information isn't always clear.
    Independent. Nonprofit. Research-backed.
    Since 2003, Common Sense has been the leading source of entertainment and technology recommendations for families and schools. Every day, millions of parents and educators trust Common Sense reviews and advice to help them navigate the digital world with their kids. Together with policymakers, industry leaders, and global media partners, we're building a digital world that works better for all kids, their families, and their communities.
    Healthy, happy kids—no matter what the future holds.
    Our mission to ensure digital well-being for kids everywhere has never been more vital than it is today. https://commonsense.org/our-impact/ (See our story).

Fantastic!

If you are a Tech Coach or Integration specialist whatever you’re title is - if your job is to support teachers with technology this is the podcast for you. Every time I listen to it I get great ideas and the weekly meet ups is so great because I’m a new tech coach and building my professional learning network is so important right now. Thank you so much for this wonderful podcast!

Storyman53 ,

Tons of great content, lots of ideas!

I've been listening to this podcast for over two years and continue to learn new things about what is going on in education today. I'm impressed with the self-less nature of Jeff - and of his podcast guests - who do this because they genuinely care about the education and welfare of their students. This podcast is a source of inspiration for me and is a reliable source for ideas and information on the use of technology in the classroom. I have greatly enhanced my own presentations with what I have learned! What a terrific resource for teachers and educators in all strata of the educational system! I have to say that as I have listened to this podcast - and my awareness of the current status of education in America has increased - my faith has been restored in the education system in this country. I have always respected teachers for what they have to do to make their students experience the best possible (and how difficult that has been, and can be)...but that repsect has increased exponentially as I listened to what so many of them are doing - mostly on their own time, and sometimes, at their own expense - in and out of the classroom on behalf of the students and their families. Granted, things are far from ideal (in America's education system, in general), but with people like Jeff, and those who appear and contribute to this podcast, our students will truly benefit from their time in school. Well done, Jeff! I will certainly continue to tell educators (and parents!) that I meet about TeacherCast! Stellar!!

Moby Rocks It ,

I always get something...

I've been listening for a few months now, and I always hear about great uses of technology in the classroom. Jeff and colleagues LOVE sharing information, and provide thorough, pertinent and timely advice to any educator who wants to use technology in a better way in her/his classroom. Keep a note-taker on hand while listening; you’ll never remember all they share.
