OnEducation, by OnPodcastMedia, is a podcast about “teachers, teaching, and everything in between.” The hosts are two educators—one a language teacher in the US, the other a computer science teacher in Canada—who talk with world-class educators, take questions, and tell listeners what’s new in educational technology. The entertaining and timely conversations offer trusted, expert-level opinions on the best software and technology for the classroom. Since March 2018, OnEducation has consistently grown its listener base and is now regularly the top podcast on the iTunes “Educational Technology” chart. OnEducation also offers a blog for educators to take a deeper dive into the topics discussed on the podcast.
Sir Ken Robinson once said in a TED Talk that "Teaching is creative profession."
I love that line.
Because of systems in place, as well as cultural stereotypes, and Mrs. Crabapple from The Simpsons, it is very easy to believe that teachers are just walking textbooks, or playback machines, or mindless dictators (ok, maybe I can be a little dictatorish sometimes). But these descriptions are limiting, because at the heart of teaching is creativity.
