My New BAM! Radio Show Is On The Air & First Episode Is On “Flipping” Classrooms

bam

I’ve just begun a weekly ten minute BAM! Radio Network podcast where I interview a couple of guests who have written responses to the “question-of-the-week” at my Education Week Teacher advice column.

You can listen to the first show, which is on “flipping” classrooms, with at the BAM! site or download it (and subscribe for free) on iTunes.

I interview guests Jon Bergman and Troy Cockrum about the positives and potential negatives of the strategy. You read my Ed Week post with their written response here.

The next one — on parent engagement — should be up tomorrow.

I’ll also be including a link to it in each of my related Education Week Teacher posts. It’s just been slightly delayed because Apple wasn’t accepting any new shows on iTunes over the holidays.
