Great education podcasts meme

Here are five great education podcasts I’ve listened to recently (in reverse
chronological order), each from a different source:

  1. July 2007 – Angela
    McFarlane’s speech at the Building Learning Communities Conference
  2. June 2007 – Bruce
    Dixon’s speech at EduComm
  3. January 2007 – Ken Kay’s speech at
    FETC
  4. January 2007 – Steve
    Hargadon’s interview of Chris Lehmann
  5. November 2006 – Richard Elmore’s speech at
    UCEA
    (I made this one and keep listening to it!)

I’m thinking this might be a good meme, so I’m tagging the following
bloggers:

Meme guidelines

  1. Choose five of your favorite education podcasts. Any kind of education podcast
    is okay – students, teachers, administrators, professors, etc. – feel free to
    pick ones that you’ve made yourself! Try and pick specific podcasts, not podcast
    feeds.
  2. Tag others for the meme. Feel free to participate even if you haven’t been
    ‘tagged.’
  3. Please use a Technorati tag of educationpodcast or
    podcasteducation.
  4. Please add your selections to the Moving Forward podcasts wiki
    page
    (and create categories as needed) so that others can benefit
    too!

  1. Excellent podcasts. Thanks!

  2. Scott, I am so glad you have the Richard Elmore speech at UCEA on tape. I was there and it was one of the most provocative speeches I have heard. The idea of professionalism in education is an idea I have always been interested in and to hear him say that educational leadership preparation was more of a cartel than a profession was really striking. I am enjoying listening to it again.

  3. Thanks for this list! I was listening to the Ken Kay speech when I saw that the Partnership for 21st Century Skills released a new report about perceptions of American voters.

  4. I’ll have mine up on Monday.

    Is the Elmore speech the one you made a YouTube for?

  5. The YouTube video is a 6-minute excerpt of his entire 1-hour speech. I linked to the full speech above.

  6. I wrote about Elmore here: http://mizmercer.edublogs.org/2007/10/24/random-thoughts-about-what-others-are-saying/

    after listening to the whole thing. You definitely got the best part of it.

    Liked the Dixon one too. Great idea, but your timing on this was not great as I’m in the middle of trying to listening to K12Online, BUT there will always be Thanksgiving, etc. to listen to my growing backlog of podcasts from this meme.

  7. Scott – Found this one on my iPod this weekend. Thanks for posting. The Elmore speech is amazing. Regards — Alex Ragone
