OnEducation is a source of entertaining and timely conversations about “teachers, teaching, and everything in between” as well as trusted, expert-level opinions on the best software and technology for the classroom. Since March 2018, OnEducation has consistently grown its listener base and is now regularly the number one podcast on the iTunes “Educational Technology” chart.

OnEducation is hosted by Glen Irvin and Mike Washburn.

Irvin was a foreign language teacher for almost 20 years before recently moving into a new role as an educational technologist in Sauk Rapids, Minn. He is best known for his groundbreaking work integrating Minecraft with Spanish language instruction.

Washburn is a computer science teacher and technology integration specialist from Canada. His Game Design Challenge asks students to spend an entire school year crafting a video game: designing the graphics, music, narrative, and programming the entire game themselves.

OnEducation also offers a blog to allow Irvin, Washburn, and their guests to take a deeper dive into the topics they discuss on the podcast.
