#PodcastPD is a Twitter chat that promotes podcasts as a viable source of professional development for educators. Educators come together to discuss podcasts that can help continue their growth as professionals as well as personally.

The 30 minute, 2 question chat inspires educators to reflect on the many uses of podcasts and also includes recommendations and homework (we’re educators after all)!

#PodcastPD takes place on Sunday nights at 8:30PM EST.

The chat was created by Stacey Lindes and is co-moderated by AJ Bianco and myself.
