The Education Podcast Network

Podcasts are essentially free audio files that are made available via subscription to an RSS feed that enables automatic download of new files to the user’s computer and portable music player. Educators are getting excited about the potential for using podcasts as part of the teaching and learning experience. A new site entitled the Education Podcast Network provides a good starting place for people looking for educational content distributed via the podcast format. The site categorizes available feeds in useful ways, lists new episodes from these feeds, and provides an online player for folks who want to listen to the content on their computer.

According to site creator David Warlick, “The Education Podcast Network is an effort to bring together into one place, the wide range of podcast programming that may be helpful to teachers looking for content to teach with and about, and to explore issues of teaching and learning in the 21st century. Most of the producers of these programs are educators, who have found an avenue through which they can share their knowledge, insights, and passions for teaching and learning and for the stories that they relish and teach.”
