Incorporate technology into your teaching with the Utah’s Hogle Zoo’s Education Department’s new audio and video podcasting program!
Each unit is designed to meet state and national science standards and includes conservation information, interviews, video footage and curriculum materials to help you incorporate the podcast into classroom learning.
We currently have three podcast episodes up! Click here to listen to interviews with conservation biologists from throughout the world. Below are some links to get you started on including UHZ podcasts in your classroom.
