I listened to the podcast Mission Monday #034: “Lightbulb Moments” and other cliches you shouldn’t use http://edreach.us/podcast/mission-monday-034-lightbulb-moments-cliches-shouldnt-use/. Mark and Sam talk about the cliches they hear during interviews and how to set yourself apart when answering questions. They recommend telling your story and giving real examples rather than saying “I just love kids”.
Are podcasts something you would consider for professional learning in the future?
I was not impressed by this podcast at all. The first five minutes were spend talking about nonsense that wasn’t even related to education. When they finally got to the content, it was very drawn out. I would have enjoyed reading about this in a 2 paragraph article, rather than listening for 30 minutes. I am not opposed to the idea of learning from podcasts, but I think I would need to search for a different one. I wasn’t a fan of “Mission Monday.”
