Extra Credit with Teacher Michael

A podcast about the world of online education.

I've created this podcast as a way to share stories & learn from people who are using today's technology to teach things online.

Some of my guests are like me, teaching English to students in China with companies like VIPKid, some create educational resources on platforms like Teachers Pay Teachers, some make tutorial videos on YouTube.

The thing we all have in common is that we're using the internet to reach beyond the traditional classroom to share our ideas and expertise with the world.

If that sounds interesting, you're in the right place and this podcast was made for YOU!
