Later this week I will be attending the Fall CUE conference here in Northern California. I believe it is my 7th or 8th of this in a row… you see I’m a bit of a tech conference junkie!
I am leading a few sessions this year. One titled “#CreateWithChromebooks” and another more about just Google Slides titled “I Didn’t Know Google Slides Could Do That?”
A third session I have is a little new to me as it is one geared more towards education leaders, admin, TOSA’s, etc. It is titled “Connect With Your Community and Develop Your School’s Brand” and in it I am helping to demonstrate ways anyone can help promote and celebrate what they are doing in the schools and districts. I will be showing how to create and expand your social media presence as well as focus on more traditional communications tools as well. But I will also be touching on the power of podcasts.
I have a two fold plan of what I want to do
1) Show them podcasts, in fact specific episodes, which they should listen to in order to learn and / or be inspired
Here is a list of some of the episodes that really connected with me for some reason or another
2) Show them how they can make a podcast themselves with as little as the phone in their pocket
Should be fun!
