A great way to stay up to date with the latest news in the EdTech space is to listen to podcasts.
Technology moves so quickly that it’s imperative everyone in the school ecosystem takes responsibility for how technology is used, and one of the best ways that teachers can do this is to keep their ear to the ground and share any good practice that you come across with your school’s digital lead.
As you can imagine, there are quite a few education podcasts out there, so we’ve shortlisted our top 5 to get you started.
