What is TeacherCast?
Have You Ever Thought This Way?
Have you ever said to yourself:
- I want to do more with my students, but I simply don’t know where to start?
- My school district wants me to use more technology in the classroom, but there are so many options to choose from and I don’t know how to find the right tools for my classroom.
- I would like to be a risk taker, but I’m constantly running into walls with my peers and I’m constantly feeling frustrated.
If this describes your mid year … or even your first marking period thoughts don’t worry … we have all been there.
Don’t Worry … We’ve All Been There
I remembering working with my students many years ago trying to figure out how to navigate my way through the world of educational technology. I know what it feels like to want to do something special with my class but not sure which of the many tools would be best for my students to test out.
I found myself struggling to find the best website to read the best blogs who recommend the best podcasts. All of this research found me spending more time searching the internet and less time spending time with my family. It is for this reason why I created TeacherCast.net.
A Proven Strategy … With A World of Support
For the last 7 years, I’ve had the amazing opportunity to work with teachers all over the world to help them develop their unique library of tools for their classrooms. As the creator of TeacherCast.net and the TeacherCast Educational Broadcasting Network, I have amassed a comprehensive library of podcasts, screencasts, editorial content, and hands-on workshops designed to help you and your school district integrate and infuse technology at the highest level with your students.
My Goals for Writing This Blog
The mission of TeacherCast has always been simple. It is now, was then, and forever will be: “A Place for Teachers to Help other Teachers.” This means that my podcasts, screencasts, and all of the educators who have contributed to the blog, come together with the purpose of being a team to help out educators world-wide.
This website is being created with a slightly different purpose. Although this site is slightly similar in mission to TeacherCast, is not designed to help out every teacher on the planet on every topic on the planet. This site is designed for me to share my experiences as a Technology Integration Specialist to share with you how you can successfully infuse and integrate technology in your classrooms.
All You Have To Do Is … Ask The Tech Coach
This past year witnessed the birth of a new podcast called “Ask The Tech Coach.” Through this podcast, I will be sharing my favorite lessons, tech tools, and tricks to take your classroom to the next level of tech integration. I hope you will consider subscribing to this podcast on iTunes, Google Play, and wherever you listen to your favorite podcasts.
Products, Services, Workshops, and Keynotes
While the majority of the content on both TeacherCast and this website will remain free, there are a number of additional services which I enjoy doing to support and offset the cost of creating this content. Over the next few weeks, I will be creating and launching a series of online courses and eBooks to help you learn how to integrate technology into your classrooms. If there are any opportunities for us to work together, please don’t hesitate to contact me and request a workshop, presentation, keynote or other type of opportunity.
