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.

How to Create Your Own Successful Podcast My favorite podcast, Fresh Air with Terry Gross, from National Public Radio's WHYY in Philadelphia, has featured many well-known guests, from Hillary Clinton to comedy legend Mel Brooks.

It's a great time to experiment with this medium, since podcasts are drawing increasing attention from media companies.

The Difference Between Emergency Remote Teaching and Online Learning Well-planned online learning experiences are meaningfully different from courses offered online in response to a crisis or disaster. Colleges and universities working to maintain instruction during the COVID-19 pandemic should understand those differences when evaluating this emergency remote teaching. Due to the threat of COVID-19, colleges and universities are facing decisions about how to continue teaching and learning while keeping their faculty, staff, and students safe from a public health emergency that is moving fast and not well understood.

Don't 'just Google it': 3 ways students can get the most from searching online Searching online has many educational benefits. For instance, one study found students who used advanced online search strategies also had higher grades at university. But spending more time online does not guarantee better online skills. Instead, a student’s ability to successfully search online increases with guidance and explicit instruction. Young people tend to assume they are already competent searchers. Their teachers and parents often assume this too.
