It took just under twelve hours for iTunes to approve us, so that’s pretty cool. I would like to think that the short wait is a reflection of our general awesomeness, but it’s more likely that it takes that long for everyone. In any case, if you want, you can click here to see the Edvancers.com Podcast in the iTunes online directory.
If you’re feeling generous, head over there and subscribe, then give us a rating and/or a review. Couldn’t hurt, right? While you’re at it, you can use the snazzy new links below each post to share our exciting news and content with your friends.

I submitted the Edvancers.com podcast to the iTunes Music Store’s podcast directory this morning. While I certainly can’t guarantee that they will accept the show, I think they should so I hope to be able to announce our launch in the iTMS soon.

Michael Soguero is the Director of Professional Development at Eagle Rock School and Professional Development Center. His work at Eagle Rock was covered in a recent article in Phi Delta Kappan which is reprinted on the Eagle Rock website.
According to the article:
Eagle Rock School and Professional Development Center (ERS) in Estes Park, Colo., is a boarding school designed to re-engage students who already have dropped out and persuade them to stay in school and graduate. The school does this by giving students leadership positions, giving students as much time as they need to meet expectations, using interdisciplinary learning, and being willing to change the school to meet changing needs.
Michael and the rest of the faculty and students at Eagle Rock are accomplishing amazing things, putting into practice some of education’s most exciting and revolutionary theories.

So today is launch day.
As of right now, nobody knows about Edvancers… but I hope that will change soon. I’ve been puttering around here long enough, setting up the site, fixing the theme, installing gizmos and widgets and planning new features; it’s time to take Seth Godin’s advice already and poke the damn box.
Here goes nothing.
