In learning about podcasting I saw these videos which helped immensely when it came time to do my own podcast.

These are some exceptional 3rd graders and there podcast are amazing. You can hear them so clearly and they always pause between speakers and introducing each other. I learned a few things from these amazing podcasters. I have never heard of a voice podcast but always thought they were videos but these 3rd graders proved that theory wrong fast. These audio podcasts are done very well and severe as a great example of how to do an audio podcast right.
These are some amazing ideas that teachers have come up with. I would have never thought that you could use podcasting to help children to understand in an english class. Using english vocabulary and putting that vocabulary in to action is a creative way to use a podcast to tell a story and teach language at the same time. These students would create a plot for their podcast and then create a story line. These ways of using podcast excite me about implementing them in my future classroom.
The Benefits of Podcasting in the Classroom
I think Mr. Dale showed some amazing ideas and on how podcasting could benefit students. His example of the teacher posting the study guide lecture in a podcast on the class website is a great way to help students be able to review and keep up if they are out sick. I did not know that podcast could be so helpful when it came to enacting them in to classroom activities. I know these podcast defiantly would have been a great asset when I was going through school.
