Thank You @innovativeEd! Great to Collaborate, Learn and Share Student Voice! New Post

I am always amazed at the power of connections formed via my online PLN.  #VTED is alive and well for many of us and has helped form some amazing connections.  One such connection for me is through @innovativeEd or the Tarrant Institute for Innovative Education.  We’ve connected multiple times but this was the first (of many, I hope) collaborative podcasts.

Aside from just having the chance to connect with these amazing educators, what I really appreciated is the recognition of our students and their voice in the discussion.  Sometimes missed, student voice is one of the most important reasons that we do this type of work.  It’s not just a great public relations spiel…everything we do is for the kids.  Using tools like podcasting helps highlight their work and the work of our educators…and it is great!
