From the Podcast: Talking with John Gould, Principal at Dartmouth High School

Episode 8 of We Love Schools Podcast: The importance of public schools, a conversation with John Gould

February 8, 2016

In this week’s episode, Joel speaks with John Gould, the principal of Dartmouth High School in Dartmouth Massachusetts about the impact of his own schooling, teaching independent thinking, and the power of public education.|

“Today, we don’t have all the answers but we aren’t ignoring the questions and we’re trying to address them. And that’s empowering.” — John Gould

The Impact of Public Education

Diagnosed early on with a language learning disability, John was sent by taxi at the tender age of four to receive special help to learn how to speak.

Podcasts offer exciting opportunities for school districts

November 19, 2015

The surge in the use of mobile devices among all age groups could make podcasts a valuable implement in a school district’s communications toolbox. Podcasts create a unique communications opportunity because of their portability, ease of use and growing popularity. With careful planning and a little creativity, podcasts could become a primary source of information for  your schools to communicate with staff, students, parents and the community.

What is a podcast? Podcasts are audio or video files stored online that may be downloaded by subscribers to their computer, MP3 player (such as an iPod) or smartphone.

According to Pew Research Center, more than one-third of all Americans, ages 12 years or older, have listened to at least one podcast, and researchers say that number is growing.  According to a study by Edison Research, among daily podcast listeners, podcasts occupied 30 percent of their listening time, more than any other audio source.
