  • The power of learning through educational Podcasts.

Have you heard of The Educational Podcast Directory?

It’s my “go-to” anytime I need a new educational listen! The Educational Podcast Directory is designed to be the best way for teachers to search for and discover new educational podcasts and podcasters.

The question is, how do you discern what show best fits your needs?

It starts with identifying the topics you are interested in learning about, and then finding a Podcast that meets those needs. Podcasts are great for quick PD, on your commute, or during your workout.
