Field Trip by Google

I watched the podcast by ToolZeit about the free Google app called Field Trip.  It is a pretty neat app that has implications for the classroom. Renee and Fred are the hosts and they give a short but thorough evaluation of the app.  What I found even more interesting; however, is that every Monday, Wednesday and Friday they evaluate tools and apps that may be of use for teachers, students, or even tools for your personal life.  They can be found on the EdReach home page.  I have attended many Webinars in my working life before changing careers.  What my employer liked most is that so many are free!  I also attended one this year as a kindergarten IA.  I would definitely continue to use podcasts for professional development.  They are easy, convenient, and offer many interesting topics.
