Future Plans for These Resources / Links

Since podcasts work best via RSS feeds, hopefully we'll soon have working RSS feeds / links for at least the Seedlings podcast and the Bit by Bit podcast. At some point it would be wonderful to offer a multi-week, online class in which students (most likely in-service educators) review and discuss archived podcasts created by Bob and his students. There is such a rich legacy here of learning pedagogy. If you have suggestions please share them!
