  1. Personally, I’ve subscribed to Dave Ramsey podcasts – He’s a nationally known expert on getting out of debt.

    Profesionally, I’ve subscribed to Prototype This! – a show on Discovery where three radical engineers are given prototypes to create. The show is entertaining and educational. They are excellent at explaining engineering concepts on an easier level.

    I’ve seen this site before at a workshop but have not revisited it. Thanks for helping me to remember 🙂

  3. There are several podcasts that look promising for vocabulary developement including The Word Nerds (kids would like the sound of that title) and Meriam Webster’s Word of the Day.

  4. I subscribe to several video and audio podcasts through Itunes. The Science and Discovery networks have some fantastic podcasts. I caught up on the world of Science this summer when I was flying overseas through the podcasts on my IPod.

  5. Just search under bisdautotech in iTunes

  6. I subscribed to npr technology podcast.

  7. I subscribed to a video blog for science called Natural Sciences and it is filled with great science information and I also subscribed to CNN for Students which gives a ten minute commercial free capsual of the news for students. I see it as a very useful tool to encourage keeping up on current events.

    I downloaded several Spanish lessons. Since half my class is ESL and I keep saying I’m going to learn Spanish I thought this would be a good time to start. I guess you could call this a belated new year’s resolution. Gracias, amigo!

  9. Great suggestions, all! Thanks for participating, and keep ’em coming!

  10. I downloaded iTunes and the January 11th webquest of ABC News so my students can keep up with current events. I also like to download podcasts with cooking lessons.
    Thank you for reminding me of the great resource.

  11. Teresa,

    Glad you find it useful! Cooking lessons, huh? If you need an unbiased opinion on any experiments there, let me know. 🙂

  12. I have joined you tube and as a class we watched how to make smow and we have watched several on “geomats”
