Reflecting on this Radio Channel

This radio channel is pretty special. I can’t believe that over the winter holiday I bumped into Stephen Hurley online and he let me in on this very exciting project. How we educate, and how we learn is so much about stories and collaboration and that is what the radio station is all about. You can tune in a hear a wide variety of programming from educators, student teachers, students and more.


So, the thing I would really like to reflect on is this very cool project that has grown in it’s own way, #ONedmentors. This is something that Chris Cluff and I cooked up over twitter direct messages, a podcast and a google hangout or two. I became aware that a decent number of people that are in my twitter PLN are student teachers. I was thinking how great it would be to have at my fingertips the PLN I have now when I was just beginning.
