Project Audio: Teaching Students How to Produce Their Own Podcasts
Invisibilia: Episode 1: Dark Thoughts (Segment: 0:00 - 2:40) The Daily: Fired Over an Instagram Post (Segment: 0:00 - 3:45) StoryCorps: Gregory Bess and April Gibson (Segment: 0:00 - 2:36) For “The Daily” episode, students might notice that the interview questions are sometimes edited out — so the listener just hears the interviewee’s responses. Students might even guess what the missing questions were. Then regroup as a class. What interviewing techniques did you hear? Which ones do you think are the most essential to good interviewing? Mini-Lesson: Using a Smartphone to Record Until now, we‘ve focused on the nontechnical aspects of podcasting, but to move forward we’ll need to make sure the class knows how to use recording devices. • First, smartphones will need to have a sound recording app. Activity: Recording an Interview Students are now ready to make their first recording.
