Using Podcasting in the Classroom
Podcasting would be a great way to make your classroom interactive. For example, teachers could use podcasting to record videos of their students performing a play. The students could then share their podcast with parents or other schools. Storytelling could be another use of podcasting. Students could even participate in tours or create tours through the use of podcasting.
Students with audio, visual, and kinesthetic learning styles could benefit from podcasting.
Podcast could be a good way to interact with another school during a telecollaborative project. Students may wish to show another school a video of something they completed or created at their school. If students were collecting data, a podcast could be another format to share the data gathered.
