Podcasting is an interesting area to explore- I am and already was a consumer of certain podcast but I have to clarify that I was not subscribing to any "educational" but rather interesting topics from the Discovery Channel, which I found interesting. I do not see myself as a Podcast producer but I am a teacher of teacher, so I do see myself as a disseminator of information. And teachers are interesting in podcasting. I see it as an easy method of presenting and preserving content for teachers. Obviously, the biggest obstacle is the existing technology department which is reluctant to try new things- seems like an oxymoron, doesn't it?
I am an occupational therapist working with special needs children in schools. I have been working for Sparta Area Schools for about 20 years and worked in other districts prior to that. I received my undergraduate degree and my graduate degree from Western Michigan University. I have three sons and four dogs that take lots of my time and attentions. During my "free" time, I like to read, make jewelry, knit and do a little sewing (and I obviously read way too many blogs).
