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!


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.

  1. Meaningful, Engaged Learning and Projects4 Me by Mike Muir (Seedlings audio podcast, 13 Feb 2012)
  2. A Teacher Starts a Movement — The Story from APM (28 Nov 2011)
  3. Sharing: The Moral Imperative by Dean Shareski (K12Online 2010 PreConference Keynote)
  4. Open Education & The Future by David Wiley (from TEDxNYED on 6 Mar 2010)
I also recommend my two primary audio podcast channels, which I update with some regularity:
