From EdNC’s Alli Lindenberg:

EdLeader Podcast – Keeping Media Centers Connected with Mrs. Emily Golightly and Mrs. Amanda McCal‪l

The flexibility and innovation of Media Specialists Mrs. Emily Golightly and Mrs. Amanda McCall are connecting their Media Centers to students and teachers in new ways and making a difference in the lives of students as readers and learners.

Data Lit – The How of Feedback

As the hosts explore the concept of feedback, one of the key take-aways has been the notion that feedback must be received by the learner in order to be effective; as a result, how feedback is given plays an instrumental role in how it is received.  In this episode, the hosts provide educators with some considerations when giving written or oral feedback, as well as strategies for feedback in group and one-on-one contexts.

Beyond the Classroom – Meeting the Needs with Terry Phillips

In this episode, host Kaidyn Radford talks to Terry Phillips, the program coordinator for Legacy, a mentorship program for men of color at Davidson-Davie Community College. Phillips discusses his own journey as a Black man navigating the educational system and how that has equipped him to help the men in his program. He also offers advice for community colleges looking to start a similar program on their campus.
