I’ve been slow to come to Podcasts. For that matter, I’ve been slow to move to MP3 players. I got an iPod classic with 120gig capacity for my birthday a couple of months ago. It’s been sitting there with its pathetic 112 songs on it since then. Finally I’ve had time to explore iTunes and the variety of Podcasts about education and technology that are available. With a bit of help from my Twitter network I’ve subscribed to quite a few.
Part of my initial hesitation was the simple fact that I didn’t really know what I was doing when it came to downloading from iTunes. To those under the age of 20 that’s probably laughable, but my teenage years were in the era of vinyl records and cassette tapes! I’m happy to report I have mastered the fine art of downloading and syncing to my iPod and now have hours of listening pleasure at my disposal. And all for free!!
What I’ve subscribed to:

TWIT – This week in technology

I can hear you asking, ‘When is she going to get time to listen to all that?’
Good question. I have an underused treadmill in my back room. I mentioned in an earlier post that my brain had been active but not much else of me this year! Now I can combine activity with learning and do my body and mind a favour.
