With over 10 hours of video (and more coming), we’ve decided to create an iTunes podcast for our videos. All of our videos will still be available on our site, but now they’ll also be on our podcast page, listed in one place in an easy to find format. This will make downloading our videos even easier. Watch them at your convenience from your iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, or any other compatible device. Additionally, if you download the videos you’ll find some of our longer videos have chapter markers, making it easier for you to find the content within a video that you’re looking for. We think this is an exciting addition and hope our audience does as well.
Check out the new documentary, Testing Teachers, by Emily Hanford at American RadioWorks. You can download the 53-minute audio documentary as an MP3 audio file, listen online, or read the transcript. Here’s a summary from their site:
Teachers matter. A lot. Studies show that students with the best teachers learn three times as much as students with the worst teachers. Researchers say the achievement gap between poor children and their higher-income peers could disappear if poor kids got better teachers.
Politicians and education reformers are calling for big changes in how teachers are trained and evaluated – and in the way teachers are hired and fired too.
