Over the next few weeks I running a number of workshops for teachers where I will touch on some of the great web 2.0 tools that you can use in the classroom. One tool that I still believe is underused by many schools is podcasting.
Podcasting is the process of creating an audio recording and then distributing it on the internet. It’s a form of on-line radio but the big difference is as a consumer (listener) you can subscribe to the podcast and then you will automatically be notified when a new episode becomes available.
Over the years I’ve been involved in a number
of Podcasting projects from creating some of the first web downloadable audio revision
material to a regular weather Podcast that was broadcast out of my classroom
when I was head of Geography at Dunbar Grammar School. I also
listen to a lot of educational podcasts as part of my own continuous professional
Anyway, as I was up-dating my own podcast on-line handouts I came across this fantastic slideshare presentation titled, ‘Podcasting for Teachers’. Defiantly worth a look if your interested in finding out more about creating podcasts at your school.
