The particular podcast I listened to was on teachers teaching teachers. I chose this podcast as I believe that at this point in time, with all the knew ICT's and new concepts floating around the world of education, teachers really need to pull together to ensure that education is consistent across the board. I am sure that at times, there may be a bit of an 'us and them' feeling between students and teachers. Teachers can try and overcome this by collaborating with each other. After a teacher has experimented with an ICT in (or outside) the classroom, they could discuss their results with others. What worked, and what didn't? As I have not had any teaching experience as yet I am unsure of the attitudes and practices of today's teachers. However, I would hope that teachers are working together to ensure that students are getting the best education possible. " we have to find how to present our curricula in ways that engage our students" (Prensky, 2005) Podcasts may not be the most engaging way of presenting information to our student's, but by using them in our curricula, we are at least starting to speak our students language.
