I’ve created a new page on my blog which I’ve titled, “Essential Media.” This is linked under the drop-down menu for “Resources” at the top, but if you’re viewing my site on a mobile device you may not see that link. I encourage you to visit and bookmkark/save it. At this point, here’s what I’m starting with on that page. I’ll add more resources to the page in the weeks and months ahead as I find media resources worthy of inclusion!
CURRENT TEXT, LINKS AND MEDIA ON “ESSENTIAL MEDIA” (24 Feb 2012)
The following links are free audio podcasts and videos which I consider “essential media” for educators. Whether you are an in-service educator, a pre-service educator, a university professor selecting content to include in your courses, or simply someone looking for great ideas and inspiration on the topics of education and learning: These are “iReading” media files you SHOULD “consume” (listen to, watch and/or read) and share. If you have others to add to this list, please share them as comments.
