Dr. Kathy King, Professor and Director of the Regional Educational Technology Center (RETC) at Fordham University in New York City, and educational technology expert Mark Gura deliver the latest resources, news, updates, interviews and commentary on technology innovation for teaching and learning.
In their Educational Podcasting Seminar: "Podcasting , Education and Lifelong Learning", the co-hosts of the 'Podcast for Teachers' and 'Adventures in Transformative Learning' share how they and other educators are using podcasting to bring more excitement and education to learners of all ages.
