The Google Teacher Academy in New York #2: Jeffery Bradbury's TeacherCast podcasting site


It is just  day or two before the greatly anticipated Google Teacher Academy, and I thought I would take a look at what some of the other 49 attendees get up to in their daily technology explorations. This podcasting site, TeacherCast http://podcast.teachercast.net/ caught my attention. It is hosted by Jeffrey Bradbury, one of the Google attendees,  and it contains many really interesting educational podcasts, blog posts, app reviews and much more! I follow Jeffrey Bradbury on Twitter (@teachercast) but never thought I would get to meet him in person!

Jeffrey has conducted three podcasts recently that are related to the upcoming Google Teacher Academy in New York. He asked folk to volunteer to be interviewed (but of course I didn't!). Let me tell you about the three posts.
