Podcasts! This is information that we can listen to. This makes it appealing to all those auditory learners. My husband in particular loves his podcasts and is always listening to his favourite topics from his iphone!

Tony Guzman's curator insight, September 30, 2015 9:24 AM

This blog entry shares about the benefits of podcasts for instructors. I would also suggest Stitcher as a good podcast app for your mobile devices. If your interested in social work issues, then subscribe to the UB School of Social Work podcast, inSocialWork (www.inSocialWork.org).

Collaboration & Connectedness the Key to Quality Teaching | PLN Personal Learning Network Resources | Scoop.it

Most teachers recognise the potential for collaboration between students and the importance of it as a component of a 21st Century education and yet many do not take full advantage of the opportunities they have for collaboration as teachers.
