Podcasting allows educators to take their students beyond traditional assignments -by including voice recordings, photos, movies and sound effects to share their knowledge. For example, students can draft and perform scripts as a writing assignment, create a visual progress report for an ongoing project, or submit a recorded version of a science presentation.
Podcasting is also a great way for educators to deliver content to their students. They can distribute homework assignments, record book narration for beginning readers to read along with, or create foreign language lessons that students can review at their own pace. For educators and administrators, podcasting is an effective tool for professional development, as well as for communicating with parents about classroom activities and school announcements.Resources:Examples:Math Minutes - Wilson ElementaryKPAW NEWS - Lee ElementaryBooktalks - Guyer HSCoach Tandberg - McMath MSDavid Summar's English Class - Calhoun MS (Upcoming Project)Science Tube - Denton ISD Instructional TechnologyReady for more? sign up in Eduphoria!The Audacity of Podcasting on Jan 26 or May 04The 3 P's: PowerPoint, PhotoStory and Podcasting on Feb 10iTunes for Education on Feb 11 or Apr 15
