Reading

I am a big advocate of reading for all teachers, trainers and educators. But, often we just don’t have the time so I listen to podcasts and read short form articles like blogs using Digg Reader to collate them for me. Do you need a book to read this weekend or are you driving somewhere and hence have some spare time to listen? Here is a great website that has thousands of audio books that you can download for free.

Find the free audio books here.

You can get a little too hung up on the so called generational issues. The post below is a good summary of […]
