Make learning fun with podcasts!

Podcasts are a great way for students to learn. By listening to subject experts (many who happen to be pretty funny!) in the car, walking to school, or in the classroom, students will get a new take on history, math, life skills, and more.

But there's so many podcasts!

True, which is why we've done the research for you. We’ve read reviews, and listened to educational podcasts across the web.

The result? 10 amazing podcasts that will educate both teachers and students.

Play an episode in the classroom, assign listening for homework, or listen on your own to spark an idea for your next lesson!

Check out our Top 10 Podcasts for 6-12 Students!

The best medicine for a happy Thursday is laughter; have a giggle with colleagues or listen to your favourite comedy show.
Laughing has wide-ranging benefits, improving cardiovascular health and helping you connect with others so start and end the day with a chuckle.

As stressful as this year has been for me, I always attempted to be funny or tell a joke daily to my students.  It really helps them connect with you somehow on a personal level.

Having on-the-job experience is a teacher’s most valuable asset, according to a recent survey. Nearly 78 percent of respondents— said that having worked in the “real world” is likely to make someone an effective teacher.

A tremendous number of households these days are being run by females, and many by grandmothers. Many of our young people don’t have significant male role models in their lives so successful men who teach can be those role models.

Food for thought: Most students lose about two months of grade-level equivalency in mathematical computation skills over the summer months. Low-income students also lose more than two months in reading achievement, despite the fact that their middle-class peers make slight gains (Cooper, 1996)
